Dr Steven Hail is a Lecturer in Economics at the University of Adelaide, where he has lectured in financial and macroeconomics since 2002.
He has also taught during this period at both Flinders University and the University of South Australia, and before then at a variety of universities and private higher educational institutions in the UK.
Steven is a modern monetary theorist, which provides an alternative frame for understanding macroeconomic issues to modern orthodox macroeconomics, based on a more realistic description of how financial institutions and markets actually work, and behavioural and Post Keynesian perspectives on human behaviour and economic policy. He has more than 25 years of experience as a lecturer in tertiary and financial training institutions in Australia and the UK.
During his career in the UK, Steven was involved in training staff from all the major UK banks, many international banks, the Bank of England, many listed companies and the UK Government Accountancy Service.
