Grassroots Economics for a Better Future

Economist Blair Fix on what the mainstream has wrong and how to work with big picture problems


Blair Fix is an economist and post-doc at York University, but he has done a lot of his research outside of the structure and security of the academy. Blair is in the same camp as Steve Keen, believing neoclassical and mainstream economists are not only holding back society’s progression, but putting humanity and the planet in danger.


We discuss his research that proves the relationship between power hierarchies and income inequality (sorry, Hayek, looks like free markets aren’t that free!), how to manage resource distribution, and why GDP is a flawed metric for success.
