Steve Keen is Professor of Economics at Kingston University, London, and the author of Debunking Economics (2011) and Can We Avoid Another Financial Crisis? He was one of a handful of economists to predict the Global Financial Crisis of 2008, and won the Revere Award from the Real World Economics Review for being the economist “who first and most clearly anticipated and gave public warning of the Global Financial Collapse and whose work is most likely to prevent another GFC in the future”.

He has over 70 refereed publications on the money creation process, empirical analysis of the dynamics of private debt, mathematical flaws in conventional economic theory, and the role of chaos and complexity in economics.
