moneytruth.org | Home | Challenging conventions | Scoop.it

Moneytruth.org is a campaign for basic economic literacy and rights. Believe it or not, if we can understand the simple, basic facts about money, then many of the world's most serious and long-standing injustices would evaporate and every person on Earth would enjoy the protection of economic rights. Understanding the true nature of money and, by consequence, capitalism, allows us to see clearly not only why the world is as it is, but also how it might be fixed.

NAKED KEYNESIANISM: Joan Robinson on neoclassical economics | Challenging conventions | Scoop.it

Given Krugman's involuntary reopening of the discussion on the capital debates and the limits of neoclassical/marginalist economics, it would be good to hear this audio (hereand here; not very good quality) of a lecture given by Joan Robinson.
