Steve Keen (University of Western Sydney), receiving more than twice as many votes as his nearest rival, has been judged the economist who first and most cogently warned the world of the coming Global Financial Collapse. He and 2nd and 3rd place finishers Nouriel Roubini (New York University) and Dean Baker (Center for Economic and Policy Research) have won the inaugural Revere Award for Economics. It is named in honour of Paul Revere and his famous ride through the night to warn Americans of the approaching British army.
Keen was my #1 choice, I admit.
Good to spot my Green New Deal colleague Ann Pettifor was fifth.
