Dear users, today we have a very personal request. We have decided to offer our learning materials free of charge because we believe in an open, pluralist economic science that is available to everyone, worldwide. We do this without advertising because we want to remain independent of commercial interests. But our commitment to independence and open access also has its price. Every year we have large costs for programming, staff and to support our authors. If everyone reading this gave a small amount, we could keep Exploring Economics thriving for years to come - but 99% of our users don't give. So today we ask you to protect Exploring Economics's independence. The heart and soul of Exploring Economics is a community of people working to bring you unlimited access to high-qualitiy, economic learning and teaching material. Please take just a few moments to help us keep Exploring Economics going. Thank you!

The foundations of monetary macroeconomics - Steve Keen | Exploring Economics Global Lecture
Exploring Economics, 2020
In this Lecture, Keen summarizes his critique of monetary macroeconomics. He elaborates on his approach of modelling monetary macroeconomic models using his software 'Minsky'. Furthermore, in the Q&A part, he also covers an outlook on the current state of debt levels, crisis vulnerability, his critique of the current Climate Economics (represented by W. Nordhaus' DICE model) and the modelling of shadow banks within the Minsky software.
