Louis-Philippe Rochon

Louis-Philippe Rochon is an associate professor of economics at Laurentian University, and founding co-editor of the Review of Keynesian Economics. An unrepentant liberal Keynesian, he is an advocate of full employment policies and a greater redistribution of income.
Unrepentant in his belief that full employment is the only true economic and social goal, Dr. Rochon argues that governments must adopt economic policies that deliver on this promise. This means adopting policies that reduce income and wealth inequality, policies that are growth-oriented, that invest in the future of society, that create good jobs, and that benefit all -- not just the very few. Economics is not the end, but the means by which we realize the fair and just society. Follow Louis-Philippe on Twitter @LPRochon.
