Steve Keen is live from Australia on Monday 30 July (7am) Sydney time and 10PM UK time (GMT+1) on Sunday 29. Steve is Professor of Economics & Finance at the University of Western Sydney, and author of the popular book Debunking Economics, a second edition of which has just been published (Zed Books UK, 2011; www.debunkingeconomics.com).
Steve was one of the very few who predicted the financial crisis as long ago as December 2005, and warned that a period of apparent stability could merely be “the calm before the storm”. He received the Revere Award from the Real World Economics Review for being the economist who most cogently warned of the crisis, and whose work is most likely to prevent future crises.
