Econintersect: Last week our documentary was the first of a two-part lecture by Steve Keen on the history of disequilibrium economics.  This part emphasizes the contributions of Joseph Schumpeter, an "early modern" member of the Austrian School of economics and a contemporary of Ludwig von Mises.  (See GEI Analysis article, Mises and Schumpeter:  Friendly Rivals?.)

Mainstream economists have operated on the premise that complex economic systems cannot operate without extended periods of equilibrium, interrupted by by occasional disruptive shocks which then recover to a restored equilibrium. Keen concentrates on the treatment of equilibrium and disequilibrium starting with Karl Marx and extended to Joseph Schumpeter, Irving Fisher, John Maynard Keynes, Michal Kalecki and Richard Goodwin.
