Break­ing the Bad Habits of Eco­nom­ics: put that “equi­lib­rium” out!

Flattr this!

This is a talk I gave to under­grad­u­ate stu­dents at Car­tanega Uni­ver­sity in Colom­bia last week, com­par­ing the insis­tence on equi­lib­rium mod­el­ling by econ­o­mists to the bad habit of smok­ing.

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.
