In 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the wall of Wittenberg church. He argued that the Church's internally consistent but absurd doctrines had pickled into a dogmatic structure of untruth. It was time for a Reformation.

Half a millennium later, Steve Keen argues that economics needs its own Reformation. In Debunking Economics, he eviscerated an intellectual church - neoclassical economics - that systematically ignores its own empirical untruths and logical fallacies, and yet is still mysteriously worshipped by its scholarly high priests. In this book, he presents his Reformation: a New Economics, which tackles serious issues that today's economic priesthood ignores, such as money, energy and ecological sustainability. It gives us hope that we can save our economies from collapse and the planet from ecological catastrophe.

Performing this task with his usual panache and wit, Steve Keen's new book is unmissable to anyone who has noticed that the economics Emperor is naked and would like him to put on some clothes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of Martin Wolf's 'Best Books of 2021: Economics' in the Financial Times

"It is written not to interpret economics, but to change it."
Financial Times

"In this punchy and passionate book, Steve Keen deftly unravels the fundamentals of neoclassical economics - and then starts to weave together the mindset, models and maths of an economics that actually works. For any student of economic modelling who wants to help create tools that are fit for the twenty-first century, this is the handbook and call to action you have been waiting for."
Kate Raworth, author of Doughnut Economics

"This is a brilliant book. It deals with a crucial subject, and it does so with precision, wit and accessible prose."
Dissident Voice
