Steve Keen; Debunking Economics
In this lecture Steve Keen, a professor in economics and finance at the University of Western Sydney, will provide an overview of conventional economic theory, briefly cover its short-comings in dealing with the current financial situation, and outline his analysis as described in his book Debunking Economics. He will bring his discussion of the global economy right up to the present, and take a look at issues in New Zealand, including the housing market, debt levels and asset ownership, that affect our nation’s economic well-being.
There will be plenty of time for Q&A after his talk.
This is a free, public event co-hosted by the Reason and Science Society (RSS), Make A Difference with Economics (MADE) and the UoA Economics Group. Professor Keen is visiting NZ at the invitation of talksNZ: www.talks.co.nz
This lecture will be held in OGGB4, Owen G. Glenn building, University of Auckland city campus on Friday, 7 September.
