I haven’t yet had time to post Michael Hudson’s talk at Customs House–hopefully I’ll manage that this weekend–but in the meantime here is the talk I gave a couple of days earlier at Per Capita’s Policy Exchange 2009 Conference in Canberra on October 21st 2009. The good folk at SlowTV put this together, and this is the link to the video on their site.
I open this talk by referring to the first presentation at the conference (after Julia Gillard’s opening speech) by Professor Joshua Gans, in which he began by describing both Milton Friedman and Hyman Minsky as “Keynesians”. Had one of the students in my History of Economic Thought subject at UWS made such an observation, he/she would have been well on the way to a fail grade. I was hoping that SlowTV might have also posted Joshua’s talk so that you could make your own minds up on this, but that doesn’t seem to have occurred. Those curious about his approach to economics should check this link to his home page and a blog he established called Core Economics.
