This is an excellent lecture by Robert Skidelsky (Emeritus Professor of Political Economy at the University of Warwick) recorded on 7 October, 2009, on Keynes, a critique of neoclassical economics, and the financial crisis of 2008 and resulting global recession.

Lord Keynes: Speaking about criticisms of neoclassical economics, did you get a chance to read my guest posts at Facts and Other Stubborn Things on the econophysics project?ReplyDelete
They were both excellent and enlightening. I would have commented there, but have been a bit distracted myself with other work.ReplyDelete

Keen 2, Krugman 0.
More seriously, I'll do a post on it at some stage.
cool, Krugman's brusque dismissal definitely smelled funny. says something good though that he's being forced to acknowledge the heterodoxy.ReplyDelete
Good talk, but I was surprised to see Skidelsky endorse the "natural" rate of unemployment.ReplyDelete
