Steve Keen’s Talk “Will We Crash Again?”

Below is the video of Steve Keen’s recent talk at the FT/Alphaville conference in London, where he discusses why the world economy crashed in 2008, and why private-debt-induced stagnation is likely to be the fate of many Western countries for the foreseeable future. More details here.

One of his more interesting predictions is an economic crisis in China in the next 1 to 2 years, given China’s own sharply rising private debt to GDP ratio. Steve Keen also recommends Richard Vague’s book The Next Economic Disaster: Why It’s Coming and How to Avoid It (2014).
