  2. Radio New Zealand : National : Programmes : Ideas : Sunday 19 June 2011

    Last month 141 economists from around the globe launched the World Economics Association. In its first three weeks of existence more 4500 people from 120 countries joined its ranks. The association’s manifesto says it stands for a plurality of thought, method and philosophy, and a commitment to global democracy which will prevent one country or continent from dominating economic debate.

    Ideas talks to three of the association’s founding members: Ha Joon Chang, the author of 23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism; former World Bank economist and professor of economics at the London School of Economics, expatriate New Zealander Robert Wade; and Steve Keen the author of Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor of the Social Sciences,
