EP 320 – Steve is a professor, a world leading critic of neo-classical economics, and a major contributor to the development of an alternative monetary approach to economics.

We discuss the urgent need to debunk mainstream economic theories, particularly those ignoring climate change and energy integration, and advocate for substantial paradigm shifts in addressing these issues.

Steve introduces Ravel – his innovative software revolutionising data analysis. He also emphasises the need for more engineers and scientists in leadership roles, supporting his arguments with personal anecdotes and reflections on his experiences and ambitions.
