Video: Debt Crises and the World Economy, Seattle Town Hall

, 28/12/2012

On 20th November, a wonderful crowd came to Seattle Town Hall to hear me talk about Debt Crises and the World Economy, effectively a presentation of the main thesis of The Global Minotaur, suitably updated for 2012 and beyond. It was a rare occasion made possible by a crowd with which I felt a special bond […]

"We all live under the dark cloud of the same crisis" James Galbraith at Germany’s IG Metall Trades Union Congress, 7th December 2012

, 12/12/2012

There is only one crisis. The various ‘episodes’ of  US subprime mortgages, European and American banks, Greek debt, the recession of the Eurozone today, the trials and tribulations of Ireland, etc., all these are part of the very same, deeply interconnected world crisis. Pretending otherwise is fuel that gives this global crisis another lease of life, […]

On BSkyB commenting on the troika's latest assault on Greek labour

, 05/09/2012

You may have seen the leaked letter (see below for its contents and also read the Guardian’s report on the matter), authored by the troika and sent to the hapless Quisling-like Greek government.

23 crucial days for Greece

, 28/07/2012

On 20th August, the Greek government will have to borrow 3.2 billion from one arm of the Eurozone (from the EFSF) in order to repay another (the ECB). Yet Greece is insolvent. The very idea of an insolvent entity borrowing more from a community, like the Eurozone, in order to repay that same community is […]

A technical failure foretold? My interrupted BBC TV interview on the… BBC's bias

, 20/06/2012

You may recall that on Greek election day I issued a missive to the BBC, suggesting that they recover forthwith the journalistic standards which they seemed to have dropped in the run up to the Greek election. That missive, might I add, came from a long standing friend and contributor to the BBC. Indeed, I […]

The Modest Proposal in Berlin – INET Conference, 13th April 2012

, 16/04/2012

The invitation to address INET’s Berlin Conference, and to deliver a fresh version of the Modest Proposal, gave me the impetus to revisit the latter.

Θεωρία Παιγνίων

, 09/03/2012

Η Θεωρία Παιγνίων, αφού καταξιώθηκε ως η σύγχρονη θεμελίωση της οικονομικής, φιλοδοξεί πλέον να ενοποιήσει όλες τις κοινωνικές επιστήμες. Από τα μικρά προβλήματα της κοινωνίας (π.χ. το σχεδιασμό δημοπρασιών) μέχρι τα μεγάλα φιλοσοφικά μας αινίγματα (π.χ. περί Ηθικής και του ρόλου του Κράτους), η Θεωρία Παιγνίων έχει άποψη. Εντάσσει τον εαυτό της στα φαινόμενα που […]
