The Minskys

The Minskys makes “out of the box” economics approachable for all. Topics covered include inequality, employment, development and more. Articles aim to provide fresh perspectives on pressing economic  issues, and break otherwise complicated concepts down.


Named after Hyman Minsky, the blog pays homage to one of the few economists that predicted the 2008 financial crisis. Thinking far outside the box, Minsky was the kind of economist that we need. One Minsky was not enough, so we need more Minskys!


We hope that our blog encourages readers to engage with economic issues, and to engage with them in new ways. We hope it inspires them to become a “Minsky”, too, and to use economics toward a more just and sustainable future.
