An economics, investment, trading and policy blog with a focus on Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). We seek the truth, avoid the mainstream and are virulently anti-neoliberalism.
Greg Palast, very clever guy, and a mathematical genius, apparently. He studied at Chicago school under Milton Friedman but he was just an imposter. He became Milton's favourite pupil and they wrote a research paper together which was very right wing. It was so crazy Palast didn't think Milton would go through it, but Palast had to take his name off the paper in the end. Greg Palast also got friendly with the top mathematician at the Chicago School and they did work together as well. Where all the other students would give up because the maths but so boring, Palast would stay behind for hours of even more number crunching, equations and statistics. It's amazing to think that he was always a leftie, and he has never wavered from this. He's to there as one of my favourites. Micheal Hudson, Stephen Lendman, Eric Zuesse, and Paul Craig Roberts being some of the others.
