Yves here. Get a cup of coffee. This is a fast paced, information rich lecture in a series by Steve Keen for his introductory economics course. As you’ll see, this is one of his early, but essential topics: What is “mainstream economics” and why has it gone off the rails?
If you are familiar with his book Debunking Economics, you’ll recognize some of the themes here.
This is a very useful talk, since it goes into some of the dynamics within the discipline as well as probing its often dubious assumptions and results.
