This Friday, at 2pm GMT, we’ll be speaking live to prominent French economist Alain Parguez. Parguez is Professor of Economics at the University of Franche-Comte, Besancon, France. He has worked extensively on developing a genuine general theory of capitalism, that is a monetary production economy, which he labelled the Theory of the Monetary Circuit.

He has written extensively on monetary policy, crisis theory and economic policy, including many articles on the impact of austerity measures, which he believes are the cause of world crises. He is currently writing a book on the General Theory of the Monetary Circuit and its economic policy implications.

Parguez is a long standing critic of the structure of the Eurozone, and is also associated with Modern Monetary Theory. Please join us in a web conference on the unfolding Eurozone crisis. You can ask your questions and improve your understanding of the alternatives to austerity.
