INET Young Scholars Workshop in Hong Kong

flattr this!

INET is holding a graduate student workshop prior to its upcoming plenary conference in Hong Kong on April 4-7.

The 2-day workshop consists of a mini course in 20th century history of economic thought and another mini course on statistical learning. Plus, there will be student presentations. INET covers expenses for travel and hotel -- this should be quite attractive for students. Details here:

About Steve Keen

I am a professional economist 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 debts accumulated in Australia, and our very low rate of inflation.

    Rather than try to repel the advance of the machine, which is all that the Lud­dites could imag­ine, we should pre­pare for a future of more leisure, which automa­tion makes pos­si­ble. But, to do that, we first need a rev­o­lu­tion in social thinking.”
