Steve Keen’s advocacy of a Jubilee

Here’s a YouTube video of Steve Keen being interviewed by the BBC in which he describes a plan for debt relief. Instead of banks being bailed out, money would be distributed to the population on a per-capita basis.

This strongly echoes an idea which Richard Douthwaite came up with and which was developed further by Brian Davey.
