We’re pleased to announce our upcoming web conference with Stephanie Kelton, Assistant Professor in the Economics Department of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Stephanie, who tweets as @deficitowl and contributes to the New Economic Perspectives website, is a major proponent and developer of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), a radical and sometimes controversial post-Keynsian theory that holds that Governments should print money to spend their way out of recession.
Since we have people willing to work, and goods and services that need to be exchanged, the only obstacle is lack of money: why not just print some?
MMT theorises that money is not a commodity, but is created by law to enable the exchange of commodities. For background information on MMT, read the MMT Primer.
