Mutiny off the Bounty

Flattr this!

This is the keynote speech that I gave to the Aus­tralian Teach­ing Eco­nom­ics Con­fer­ence, the paper for which will be the sub­ject of my next two posts: the decline of Eco­nom­ics from up to 40% of any busi­ness degree to about 4% today. In it I sug­gest that het­ero­dox econ­o­mists should com­plete the march to zero by jump­ing ship and join­ing Account­ing depart­ments. There they could devel­op a “Mon­e­tary Eco­nom­ics for Accoun­tants” unit that would replace the stan­dard Intro­duc­to­ry Eco­nom­ics sub­ject required for accred­i­ta­tion as an accoun­tant.

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.
