Steve Keen

Steve Keen  is an Australian economist and author. He considers himself a post-Keynesian, and rejects mainstream neoclassical economics as inconsistent, unscientific and empirically unsupported. Hyman Minsky’s financial instability hypothesis forms the main basis of his major contribution to economics[1] which mainly concentrates on mathematical modelling and simulation of financial instability. He invented the monetary systems modelling program Minsky (https://sourceforge.net/projects/minsky/).

Keen was formerly an professor of economics at University of Western Sydney, until the closure of the economics program at the university.[2] In autumn 2014, he became a professor and Head of the School of Economics, History and Politics at Kingston University in London. His work on developing a realistic approach to economics is supported by patrons at https://www.patreon.com/ProfSteveKeen
