Steve Keen on Brainstorm

We're doing an Open Brainstorm with economist Steve Keen tomorrow night, June 22nd, at 7 PM to discuss his new book. Clear your schedules if you're interested. I'll be sending out the invites to the Brainstorm members later just to make sure no one fails to hear about it.

To sign up for this free online event, please do so here.

Did anyone play Prince of Persia back in the day?

Old school as in arcade or strategy? Please clarify - don't want to waste your time.

Arcade. It's an update of Karateka.

Hey, I remember Karateka. Played it on.... a C64? Amiga? A friend had. I don't remember enough to be useful though. Side scrolling fighting game. Now I think of it, it might have been a karateka knock-off.

Look at the top-left, under Contact. There's a link that says "Email Vox".

I played Karateka on my very first Apple IIE back in about 1983 or 1984. Thumbs up on remaking this.

Outstanding news

When news of Keen's new book broke, my first thought was I hope Vox interviews him again.

I have a keen interest in this Brainstorm. Should be good.

According to Keen, the solution within this layer of economic theory is more government regulation of the banking system and government deficits to counter a fall in private demand — which is essentially the policy response to the 2008 financial crisis.

More aggressive options are quantitative easing in the form of “helicopter money,” where the central bank monetizes government debt, and the government then writes a check to households to either pay down debt or spend it in case there isn’t any debt to pay down. There could also be a more official debt jubilee where debt is simply forgiven.

How do you make sure debtors spend it on debt instead of hookers and blow?

I am pretty sure I played Karateka on the Apple ][

Blogger Dave June 21, 2017 9:12 PM  

Vox is using his time machine again; back to tomorrow night, July 22. If you're going to the manipulate the spacetime continuum, I'd appreciate a heads up on the next Democrat failure please. I like to get my wagers in early.

Good lord, Keen is still beating the dead horse of replacing private debt with govt debt and putting everyone on the dole. It is no different in the end from any other statist/communist scheme and can only end in failure. People tried similar economic theories and called it the USSR. But it will be different this time, right?

What exactly is your major malfunction with hookers and blow, Stilicho?

Whores and drug dealers are entrepreneurial. That's some laissez faire shit right there, yes? People would have to register all their private debt with the .gov so their get out of jail free card would know what to do.

Of course, people who become indebted would continue to become indebted, because that is who they are.

And people who do not become indebted would have to spend their money on stuff they don't want before the current year runs out and their card goes to zero.

Mayber hookers and blow.

I am all for it.

Basic China Money Math Still Doesn’t Add Up To A Solution

That giant sucking sound you hear at the PBoC, Saudi and Qatari central banks is global dollar deflation drawing greenbacks out of their reserves.

The last chart on this page, the OCC: Wholesale/Eurodollars "Money Supply", that is the current state of world affairs in a nutshell.

As this boat veers far OT into the game world, I just want to point out that the Steam summer sale starts noon Chicago time on the 22nd (today). I personally have about 60 badges waiting, and i am virtue signaling that all the way to Saint Gaben.

@lazarus keen-omnics sounds a lot like sheen-omics when you put it that way. The big dilemma is whether to make Heidi Fleiss secretary of the treasury or chairman of the Fed.
