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.

    I believe I’ve found a way to get the debt jubilee rolling. Obvi­ously the issue is who goes first. So how about we do it incre­men­tally? Not too easy either you would think. Who would sup­port such a thing if they weren’t get­ting in on it? How about mak­ing use of that good old fash­ioned finan­cial enter­tain­ment — a lot­tery. If you won you would get debt paid down .. receive train­ing in financials/business and an own­er­ship posi­tion in a busi­ness. They would not be able to sell their stake for say 7 yrs. and if their earn­ings exceeded the avg. in their area by more than 20% they would need to pay back into a fund 25%. This would go toward set­ting up oth­ers with a sim­i­lar deal. 

    A start.
