Conversations w/Great Minds - Prof. Steve Keen - The New Modern Jubilee P2

Professor Steve Keen, Debunking Economics, joins Thom Hartmann. If you believe Republican politicians like Paul Ryan and John Boehner - the United States has a crushing sovereign debt problem. But is private debt - the mortgage and credit card debt held by everyday Americans - the real drag on the economy? Steve is the Professor of Economics and Finance at the University of Western Sydney in Sydney - Australia - and a world reknowned authority on a wide range of macroeconomic issues - including debt - financial instability - and monetary theory. A frequent critic of mainstream economists - he predicted the financial collapse of 2008 and received the Revere Award from the Real World Economics Reviews for his cutting analysis of contemporary economic trends. Professor Keen's book "Debunking Economics - Revised and Expanded Edition: The Naked Emperor Dethroned?" is a must-read for anyone interested in learning about how we got into our current financial mess.
