MMT elite must see a big war as fiscal...

I would go for higher rates for fiscal rather than war at this juncture....

Kelton should stick to teaching at no-name universities.

Mike looks like it is coming down to a either big war or higher rates for substantive fiscal support...

MMT elite are pretty invested in permanent ZIRP so looks like war as their default perhaps...

If by some miracle the Fed starts to raise in earnest (and pronto) imo most of this goes away for now so we can at least hope...
