Support Crash! Boom! Pop! on Kickstarter & Startjoin

Flattr this!

A bril­liant team of graph­ic artist Miguel Guer­ra, lay­out artist Suzy Dias, and writer Genevieve Tran have com­bined to pro­duce what I can describe as a “car­toon ver­sion of Debunk­ing Eco­nom­ics”. They plan to pro­duce up to six graph­ic nov­els around the theme of “M” (Mon­ey, Mayhem–the Finan­cial Crisis–Method, Macro and Micro), to use visu­al media to take the mick­ey out of eco­nom­ics for those who don’t want to wade through a 500 page book.

They’re run­ning a Kick­starter cam­paign now–starting on the 85th anniver­sary of Black Tues­day 1929.

The prod­uct will be bril­liant. Miguel’s car­toons are Mar­vel Com­ic stan­dard, and the text from gonzo-blog­ger Genevieve Tran will be sharp and mod­ern. It will put the mes­sage that main­stream eco­nom­ics is seri­ous­ly ill in a form that will get through to a much wider audi­ence than any stan­dard book can reach. And it will be fun­ny and beau­ti­ful at the same time.

For your enjoy­ment, here are some of Miguel’s exist­ing car­toons.

In oth­er news, there are now Chi­nese, French and Span­ish trans­la­tions of Debunk­ing Eco­nom­ics (the Span­ish ver­sion will be avail­able in a few weeks). But it’s this fourth trans­la­tion I’m most look­ing for­ward to.

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.
