Min­sky Release Can­di­date Avail­able

Flattr this!

The lat­est “Petty” ver­sion of Min­sky finally qual­i­fies as a 1.0 release: there are enough sys­tem dynamic and user-inter­face fea­tures in it to declare it a sta­ble release. We’ll mod­ify it to remove any bugs that are identified–and I just spot­ted one inter­mit­tent one involv­ing wiring (see https://sourceforge.net/p/minsky/tickets/324/)–but oth­er­wise this will remain a sta­ble release, with no new fea­tures to be added.

Debt Deflation Modelled in Minsky

From now on, new fea­tures will be added in the “Mun” devel­op­ment fork.

You can down­load the PC ver­sion from here:


The Mac ver­sion is avail­able here:


And if you’re a Linux user, the source code is here:


The Mun release will focus mainly on aes­thet­ics and stan­dard user-inter­face fea­tures. We have about $25,000 of the funds raised on Kick­starter left for this, and we’re hop­ing for addi­tional fund­ing from INET to keep us going. If you’d like to assist finan­cially, please get in touch (edit the address before send­ing).

I’ve also uploaded a set of 8 videos to explain how to drive Min­sky:

Please check that out before you use Min­sky for the first time. I hope it will make up for the fairly patchy nature of our cur­rent Help file.

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.

    Con­grat­u­la­tions on the first sta­ble release! I look for­ward to try­ing it out. I can only hope that eco­nom­ics pro­fes­sors around the world will do the same!

  • Thanks Scott. I’ll be post­ing an extended “how to” with lots of videos (most now up on Youtube) here shortly.
