All-Star Prof. Steve Keen on Richard Vague’s new book, A Brief History of Doom

Today’s MacroVoices All-Star is Professor SteveKeen, who weighs in on Richard Vague’s new book, A Brief History of Doom. Steve says Vague has it exactly right, and his analysis of what caused 2008’s Great Financial Crisis jibes almost exactly with Steve’s own analysis of that event.

Before retiring from academia, Dr. Steve Keen was Professor of Economics at Kingston University, London from 2014 till 2018. He is now Crowdfunded on Patreon at www.Patreon.Com/profstevekeen, and is an Honorary Professor at UCL University College London. 
He was one of the handful of economists to realize that a serious economic crisis was imminent, and to publicly warn of it, from as early as December 2005. This, and his pioneering work on complex systems modeling of debt-deflation, resulted in him winning the Revere Award from the Real World Economics Review for being the economist “who first and most clearly anticipated and gave public warning of the Global Financial Collapse and whose work is most likely to prevent another GFC in the future”.

He was ranked as the 30th most influential economist in the world by Richtopia, despite being a rebel against mainstream economics. See
