Flattr this!

A friend just copied me the attached image. Apropos of current events. I can’t resist sharing it.

Sigmund And Assholes

About Steve Keen

I am Professor of Economics and Head of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University London, and a long time critic of conventional economic thought. As well as attacking mainstream thought in Debunking Economics, I am also developing an alternative dynamic approach to economic modelling. The key issue I am tackling here is the prospect for a debt-deflation on the back of the enormous private debts accumulated globally, and our very low rate of inflation.

    My personal solution is to keep myself surrounded by female of the species (laugh out loud…).

    It reminds me of something that I heard about the Fitzgerald inquiry that found the extensive police corruption extending to the highest levels. A psychiatrist had been treating a policeman for several years, and had identified him as being paranoid. After the inquiry it was realised that he was totally justified.

    Dr. Keen,
    Just wondering if you have any comments on Lee Boldeman’s ‘The Cult of Market Fundamentalism’?

    Also, on the ‘Sociology’ of Neoclassicals; if have you read, could you comment on:

    Patrick Spread’s ‘Science and Support: The Struggle for Mastery in Economics’
    (real-world economics review, issue no. 59), discussing theory of Support-Bargaining

    Ken,
    Can I point out that what you are describing has happened very recently in Germany, a scandal known as “The Mollath Affair”. Gustl Mollath has spent seven years in a high-security psychiatric institution after discovering financial irregularities at his then-employer, Hypo Vereinsbank. Recently it has become common knowledge that Mollath was telling the truth all along, courtesy of a hitherto hushed-up audit report of HVB, produced in *2003*. The bank fired the employees involved, but everyone involved forgot to tell the authorities that the whistleblower wasn’t paranoid and should be released.

    Oh I know LCTesla. It’s just that the assholes control my income, whereas the supporters don’t.

    As we start another year at uni, it reminds me that in spite of admin and senior academics setting policies that don’t seem to help standards, it is very important to take everything very seriously.
