I’m giving two talks at Swinburne University of Technology on Thursday February 4th. The information below is reproduced from the flyer for the event developed by regular blog contributor Matt Mitchell, who has arranged the talks:
12.00pm – 2.00pm: DebtWatch : Observations and reflections on the educative role of modern media
- Dr Keen will discuss his experience using his Debtwatchblog on which he posts regular articles for discussion and the role of this media in both educating the public and stimulating debate among economists, students and lay people around economic theory and practice.
- Target Audience: Educators using online resources and those interested in emerging media.
2.30pm – 3.30pm: Have we dodged the iceberg?
- Dr Keen will describe the causes of the Global Financial Crisis, and the role of debt in that crisis, as well as proposing some courses of action to deal with the effects of this crisis.
- Target audience: staff in the Economics and related discipline areas.
Matt would be delighted to have other blog members attend, and the event is open to the general public. So please make it along if you can. The venue for both talks is LA101 at the Lilydale Campus of Swinburne University of Technology.
For further details, please contact:

I hope to see some of you there. Closer to the date I hope to publish a retrospective on the development of the blog. Some feedback from members about the blog experience–which I can use in the talk–would be appreciated.
