A way in to Minsky

At Debtwatch, a 16-minute talk by Steve Keen -- Oh! the accent reminds me of our computer guy at work.

Keen uses his Minsky software to model the economy under austerity and stimulus. It wasn't awesome, but I don't wish I could have my 16 minutes back.

Anyway, you can download both Minsky and the model from the link. Excellent, if you've been thinking about experimenting with Minsky.

19+ meg, as a zip file. Wow.

I'll let you know how it works out.

"Error reading the file" during installation. Well that didn't take long.

Second try: download aborted.

Third try: same error as the first.

Meanwhile, the lawn is growing.

R.I.P. Minsky

Had the same problem, but tried a trick I have used before. Go to the exe file and click on it. You might get a note that additional files will have to extract when this finishes go back to the msi file. I got mine to load and I was able to download the file and run the model.
