Steve Keen
Steve Keen (born 28 March 1953) is an Australian-born, British-based economist and author. He considers himself a post-Keynesian, criticising neoclassical economics as inconsistent, unscientific and empirically unsupported. The major influences on Keen's thinking about economics include John Maynard Keynes, Karl Marx, Hyman Minsky, Piero Sraffa, Augusto Graziani, Joseph Alois Schumpeter, Thorstein Veblen, and François Quesnay.

    I wish you the best and will definitely consider voting for you. You need a new name for your party though. I know the AEC took away TNL's name at the behest of the LNP, but you have simply got to come up with a new name for the next election. The New Liberals sounds a lot like The New Liberal Movement , one of the forebears of The Australian Democrats. There is certainly room and potential for a new party to take that place within Australian politics.

  2. I've heard that it isn't the votes that actually count but those who count them. 🥴

    • I dont think that is true in OZ

    • @Platypus Paws Where is OZ? Is that where Jacinda Arden is from? If so, she/he definitely seems like a bought a paid for crookitician.

    • @slhines7 Australia. No he is certainly not, look at TNL's polcies they are the 100% opposite of that.
      I have also been listening to Keen for years. IMO u almosy can't be a crooked politican without Neoliberal economics, bc that is a big part of the ideological basis of why polticans feel they need vested interests, both for their own campaign, and for the economy.

    • @slhines7 We actually have an AMAZING election system in Australia, with lots of parties & independants to choose from AND PREFERENCE VOTING. That includes one or two parties that just does whatever the Public Vote for a each issue.

      Hav eyou ever, ever, ever just once considered that the only reason they are not with more power is cynical ppl like you refuse to even have an Social Responsiblity & even take a look? Just a look & see if anymatch their highest priorities.

      I am not even allowed to have yet at 39 yrs old, but I have met so many, many people with the exact attitude you have, who make that complaint and NEVER look in the mirror.

    • @slhines7 And then you claim it is everyone else's fault, EXCEPT yourself.

  3. What is your position on Covid MANDATES? The only things I care about are (1) housing (2) public transport (3) reducing inflation by creating more abundant supply (4) co-vee vee mandates for work (I am against unless in a small safe space for ppl very paranoid, if it comes again). I am generally conservative on cultural issues, but I know voting is a compromise.
    But really, i think co-vee vee is gone, but not sure. i love that Hnason wants a Royal Commision on it all.

    • You are not for workers' or humans' rights if you want to force workers into working in dangerous work situations where they have a high chance of catching a highly contagious and deadly disease.

  4. LMAO good luck.

  5. Love your policies but I think you're going to turn off a lot of progressives with that party name before they've even had a chance to look at your policies.

    • It's now called TNL. That may actually work to our advantage. I'm using it as an acronym for "Truth Not Lies"

    • @ProfSteveKeen Lol, OK. I was actually thinking that the name might be OK anyway. New Labour was taking something associated with the left and moving it to the right. New Liberals can be the reverse in the sense that it is taking something associated with the right and moving it to the left.

    Praying and wish for the best, professor!

    NSW will be lucky to have you representing them Professor Keen. Good luck.

  8. Best of luck, Steve. Your sound is pretty ordinary, and I can help with that, so feel free to ‘reach out’.

  9. Don't want to be rude Steve but academics and politicians both inhabit ivory towers.
