Unconventional prophets are often vilified, particularly in their own country.
Steve Keen is no exception. He is one of only a handful of academic economists to contest the rah rah rah of the property spivs who claim – wrongly and misleadingly – that real estate prices move in just one direction.
Keen is regularly sought as a speaker and commentator by overseas media. You are unlikely to hear from him within Australia.
