Abstract

"Neoclassical economics (NE) is under siege from multiple directions. Some see NE as a whole and essentially coherent theoretical system and paradigm and some not. The work of Steve Keen represents one class of critics of NE who attack it from the perspective of internal logical inconsistencies and mathematical paradoxes embodied within NE rather than for the potential ideological and rhetorical intentions of NE and which class interests may be served by those intentions. This article explores some of the breadth and depth of the critiques of Steve
Keen and provides also a critique of their critiques from a Marxist perspective."
