Steve Keen, an Australian professor of economics, has some really interesting and inspiring ideas for an alternative to our current global economic model. I watched him on Hardtalk last night, a BBC “interview” programme.

Everything he had to say made sense, was consistent, and given our current global financial situation is a refreshing take on what could be. Like he says, rarely are politicians leaders, instead, they are basically reactive (mind you we all are to one degree or another), responding to issues as they arrive – waiting for a collapse before being forced to look at an alternative.
He also referred to the “father” of this thinking, who was Hyman Minsky, who sadly passed away in 1996, but I really don’t know anything about this man.
Steve, you look like a leader to me. You have my support, if nothing else.
