My hero!

Banks: "parasites... financial bastards... should never have lent the money in the first place... bankrupt them... nationalise them... cancel debt... or the economy will die... never-ending Depression."

Straight-talking Aussie economist Steve Keen, talking to teeth-clenched grinning, gonzo (but still on the money, in my opinion) "Wall Street are terrorists" Max Keiser.

Hi Sack

Great link, how did you stumble upon it?

Hi Jim

I follow Credit Writedowns, where this is - I also sometimes follow Max Keiser, though I don't always have the time for video clips; and I follow Steve Keen's Debtwatch site. See my Other Frequent Reads in the sidebar.

Keen is amlost American in his forthrightness, wouldn't you say?

I've got him up at my place today.

I stumbled upon Steve Keen, too a month or so ago, while surfing the Max Keiser site.
I sure is a pleasure to hear this kind of straight talk.

As it happens, Steve Keen paid a visit to Helsinki, Finland last week. Living i Finland myself I rushed to hear his lecture expecting some hot stuff... but to my disapointment he said nothing like this on his live talk i Helsinki.

Helsinki seminar

(hardly worth listening to)

Here is Steve Keen´s website:

(..but still not much hot stuff, I am afraid)

Thanks, Lars. At least the Internet allows us to see the occasions when they really do sound off!
