I’ll only add this comment for the time being:
As I noted recently, socialism is NOT a cure for facism. Keen has, in my opinion, always added good value to the economic debate, especially insofar as he does help to understand the debt/money elements that Austrians too often underemphasize. As a post-Keynsian, he also helps to correct the mistakes that most Keynsians have made.
But, here’s the rub: again, socialism is NOT a cure for facism. The neo-classicists, for all the faults that Keen lays at their feet (for which I might concur on a great deal), they still defend economic liberty, which is the ultimate basis for all other freedoms. Still, good food for thought here. – HT
