Steve Keen, Kingston University

In a Keynote presentation at the FT Alphaville conference of 1 July 2015, Keen accessibly explains his macro model based on Minsky's analysis of capitalism (implemented in the Minsky modelling package) and argues that analyses of the "great moderation" and subsequent crash should look at the acceleration of private debt. On the basis of current levels of private debt, he predicts secular stagnation as the norm across many economies and a crash in China in "one or two years".

Edward C Prescott, Arizona State University

The Transformaton of macroeconomic policy and research is Prescott's 2004 Nobel Prize lecture. It sets out the method and significance of micro-founded, forward-looking, dynamic-equilibrium models as originated by Kydland, Prescott, Lucas and others, and widely adopted as cheap computing power becomes available. Assess the impact on use of macro models for policymaking, with particular attention to time consistency and credible commitment. It is complemented by the shorter, more empirical 'Quantitative Aggregate Theory' by co-laureate Finn Kydland, available from the same site. Both in video as well as text form.
