David Andolfatto and Andrew Spewak — Debt Monetization: Then and Now

Upping their game. However, I think that the explanatory narrative needs some work. Are these the controlling factors?

"needs some work"

LOL Tom this is all monetarist BS....

"With the spread between interest rates so large, banks had more incentive to use their newfound reserves to make loans than to hold onto them."

This is dated T-O-D-A-Y not 2007... hello!

So all the MMT elite think that this belief of theirs has no ill effects??

"banks lend out the reserves!" is a benign belief to the MMT elite academe lefties?
