For Kingston “Becoming An Economist” students

Flattr this!

I’m posting videos of lectures given by my Kingston colleagues to the introductory “Becoming an Economist” course, since the StudySpace software Kingston uses doesn’t support MP4 files. The first is Devrim Yilmaz’s lecture last week on “Data Collection and Presentation”.

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.

    1) Just in the last few days, when I try to access http://www.debtdeflation. com using Firefox v 43.0.4 (on my MacBook Air, running Mac OS 10.10. 5 (Yosemite)) the website comes up for a moment then Firefox crashes. This does not happen with any of six or seven other websites I regularly visit, including YouTube for Prof Keen’s videos. And using Safari or Chrome it does not happen. 2) However, using Safari or Chrome I cannot run Devrim Yilmaz’s lec­ture last week on “Data Col­lec­tion and Presentation”. It starts and then stops and I get a pop-out message from Safari that “Safari web content quit suddenly”, although Safari doesn’t crash. Using Chrome, when I click on the start icon for the video, circling dots appear mid-screen (as if something were buffering), but the video never gets going. Could someone post this on YouTube, like the previous five in the “Becoming an Economist” course? And is there a power point file that could be posted, as with the previous five lectures?
