Econintersect: Jan Kregel is an expert researcher on the economic legacy of Hyman Minsky who spent his 45-year career investigating the lack of stability in economic systems. Minsky was largely marginalized during his career but when the 2008 financial crisis saw the world economy blow up he was suddenly a guru, 12 years after he died. Put him on the list of great people who never won a Nobel Prize.
