Flattr this!

INET has just released an inter­view with my reseach col­league and now good friend Pro­fes­sor Matheus Gras­sel­li, the Deputy Direc­tor of the Fields Insti­tute, one of the world’s lead­ing insti­tutes for applied math­e­mat­i­cal research. He presents a lead­ing math­e­mati­cian’s per­spec­tive on math­e­mat­ics as used and abused in eco­nom­ics, and what promise there is for a bet­ter eco­nom­ics in future, based on more mod­ern math­e­mat­ics than is used in Neo­clas­si­cal DSGE mod­els.

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.
