TV3 Tonight with Vincent Brown 19th April 2012 Link to 3player here
Steve Keen aided and abetted by Constantin Gurdgiev on TV3 outlines what it will take to solve the current debt crisis – nothing less than a distribution of trillions of euro to people – NOT to the banks. Richard Douthwaite dubbed it ‘deficit easing’. Some of our MMT friends proposed the same solution. Steve also gave the nod to a secondary currency for Ireland to circulate along side the euro as a unilateral measure Ireland could adopt. This was identical to another idea generated within Feasta that was dismissed as infeasible. Dan O’Brien looked quite discomfited but Vincent Brown was in his element. No more the dismal science!
