The 'Redesigning Society Podcast' includes guests such as Gregg Braden, Geoff Lawton, Rupert Sheldrake, Michael Tellinger, Fred Alan Wolf, Ellen Brown, Greg Carlwood and Max Igan. It captures expert perspectives on the current state of societal affairs, as well as the collective change we desperately need both philosophically and practically. It also aims to amplify mainstream engagement in how we should globally move forward for ourselves and our future generations. An Interview with Professor Steve Keen Steve is Head of the School of Economics History and Politics at Kingston University (London). He has developed an alternative economic model called Debt-Deflation. Considering himself as a post-Keynesian economist, he criticises neoclassical economics as inconsistent, unscientific and empirically unsupported. His highly successful book Debunking Economics is a must read for those who want to get into the details of this issue. In this interview, we discuss the shortfalls of mainstream economic theory and practice, as well as their potential solutions. The way that we economise our society is an area that is so fundamental to how we organise and interact that it really deserves a better critique than what has been pursued by our politicians, as well as mainstream economists.
