Inter­view with Gor­don Long on Finan­cial Repres­sion

Flattr this!

I was inter­viewed by Gor­don Long for the Finan­cial Repres­sion web­site last week. The video is below; a brief sum­mary of our dis­cus­sion is posted on the Finan­cial Repres­sion web­site and repro­duced below.



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: Still far from a fully devel­oped pro­posal, but the bare bones are there.
