Here I am debating Assoc. Prof. Steve Keen on ABC TV (watch him get his numbers wrong)

You need to click on the second "housing bubble" link here. If you set aside his facts and economics, Steve is a top guy. This is the second time in a week that I have debated Steve. We went for another round today in front of 500 investors, which was a great laugh.
