Gittins and Dyspepsia

Flattr this!

Economists are wont to criticise habits as a sign of irrationality, but they’re often a sensible rule of thumb that stops us doing other things we’ll later regret.

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.

    Steve, what’s the point of subscribing to your website if I then have to subscribe to Business Spectator just to read your article there? Surely providing the article in full on your website is the right thing to do for your paying subscribers?

    I do provide the article in full on debunkingeconomics Milosh–this particular one has been up there since Thursday. At this site, I republish a link to BS which is part of the deal with them since they started paying for my posts. That in turn started when the sold the site to New Ltd.

    Steve, my bad, sorry. I have been reading your articles here instead of on the debunkingeconomics site. Silly me. Keep up the great work. You’re an inspiration to many people, myself included. Cheers

    I developed the same habit after I bought Telstra T2 on his recommendation and lost most of my money.
