Manchester University Post Crash Economics Society

Flattr this!

Last week I vis­it­ed the stu­dents who have start­ed the Post Crash Eco­nom­ics Soci­ety at Man­ches­ter Uni­ver­si­ty, and took part in a debate on the top­ic of “Should (and could) eco­nom­ics have pre­dict­ed the eco­nom­ic cri­sis?” with Peter Backus. The soci­ety will release a video of the talk at some point, but in the mean­time here is my pre­sen­ta­tion.

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.
