Ten videos on using Minsky

flattr this!

Early on Saturday morning New York time, I'm launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to further develop my Minsky modeling program. The draft pitch can be seen here (until the actual one goes live):

This post is to give a quick "what it is and why it's new" overview of Minsky via ten videos in a Youtube playlist.

The simplest example: graphing a simple function

Modeling exponential growth

Exponential growth and exponential decay

Interacting populations--the "predator-prey" model

A simple cyclical economic model (Goodwin's 1867 Growth Cycle Model)

Using Min­sky to model bank­ing and endoge­nous money

Build­ing the same model in a stan­dard “flow­chart” pro­gram Vissim

Extend­ing the bank­ing model in Minsky

Try­ing to extend the bank­ing model in Vissim

Find­ing mis­takes in a finan­cial model: Minksy vs stan­dard flow­chart­ing software

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.
