The Institute for New Economic Thinking

Posted in Uncategorized by duncanseconomicblog on August 6, 2010

I’ve got two posts on the go at the moment (my proper response to the MMT ideas (short version – I’m closer to Steve Keen than Warren Mosler) and one on the US economy)…

In the meantime, I’ve been meaning to plug the Institute for New Economic Thinking for a while. Anyone interested in economics or economic policy would be well advised to have a good look at their website – which is crammed with video interviews, lectures, debate and links.

Pretty much their entire inaugural conference is now available (videos of lectures, presentations and pdfs of speeches). Lots of this is worth watching/reading – topics covered include the depression, the economic changes over the last 30 years, inequality, financial sector reform, political economy and policy.

The new section of their website – “The Deficit Debate” – is the place to go for anyone interested in stepping above party political point scoring.
