Debunking Debunking Economics

A short article I wrote in 2002 regarding the novel arguments in Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics has been hard to track down for a while, so I’m making it available here.

Unfortunately, the link to Keen’s paper on the first page is broken. I attempted to get the paper from Keen’s site, but it’s now behind a paywall! I think the paper was called “A 75th Anniversary Gift for Sraffa,” but I failed to locate a copy.

  1. Thanks, I was looking for this a few months ago when Krugman found himself confronting Keen.

    Unfortunately the archives of the World’s Most Lopsided Economics Debate Ever at EH.Net are also mostly gone too.

  2. I can’t find the debate to which Patrick refers either. According to this paper by Dan Schiffman

    http://www.ariel.ac.il/sites/dschiffman/mainstream_economics.pdf

    (which is, incidentally, an interesting paper) the debate took place place in March, 2002, on the Hayek-L mailing list, (as back in the dark ages we had mailing lists instead of blogs). The archives for that list no longer appear to be available. If anyone happens to have a copy, please send it to me and I’ll make it available here.
