Flattr this!

Uni­ver­si­ty of Green­wich and Kingston Uni­ver­si­ty are joint­ly orga­niz­ing a series of lec­tures in advanced macro­eco­nom­ics based on a polit­i­cal econ­o­my approach com­bin­ing insti­tu­tion­al­ist, Key­ne­sian and Marx­ist tra­di­tions.

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.
