Alexander Douglas and Neil Wilson At Medium on MMT and New Keynesianism

Alexander Douglas At Medium
More on Keynesianism, MMT and interest rates

Neil Wilson comments

My sense is that this has not been the New Keynesian position until very recently, if most New Keynesians even hold it now. Ii is basically saying the MMT is correct with respect to its analysis of monetary economics and functional finance, and that central bank monetary policy is designed to increase fiscal space to make room for public spending by controlling incipient inflation that fiscal injection might cause as the economy approaches capacity.
