PROF. STEVE KEEN TALKS

FINANCIAL REPRESSION

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.

    Instead of QE, distribute much smaller amounts directly to the citizenry!! Absolutely brilliant, and it would do much more good at much less cost!

    Is this a well-worked up idea of yours Steve, or just an off-the-cuff remark?

    Did you know that in the UK Brown/Darling considered this in 2008, but rejected it because no accurate register of residents was available?

    It’s discussed in the Manifesto here: http://www.debtdeflation.com/blogs/manifesto/. Still far from a fully developed proposal, but the bare bones are there.
