Max chats to professor Steve Keen, author of ‘Debunking Economics’, about life in Thailand where Covid-19 is almost non-existent relative to Western economies. With the cowboy mentality of America, however, a similar mask-wearing compliance is unlikely to work, so what is the answer?
Max Keiser is an American broadcaster and film-maker. He hosts Keiser Report, a financial program broadcast on RT. He presents a weekly show about finance and markets on London’s Resonance FM, and writes for The Huffington Post. Keiser invented “Virtual Specialist Technology,” a software system used by the Hollywood Stock Exchange. Prior to inventing this technology, he worked on Wall Street where he began working after graduating from NYU.
Steve Keen is an Australian-born, British-based economist and author. He considers himself a post-Keynesian, criticising neoclassical economics as inconsistent, unscientific and empirically unsupported. Keen was formerly an associate professor of economics at University of Western Sydney, until he applied for voluntary redundancy in 2013, due to the closure of the economics program at the university. In autumn 2014 he became a professor and Head of the School of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University in London. He is also a fellow at the Centre for Policy Development.
