ANG Traders — It Is Inevitable

Economies are human constructs, not inevitable natural phenomena. Humans make up the rules that participants must follow when playing the game, and as the economy grows and evolves, humans must change the rules of play in ways that optimize the well-being of the majority of participants. In this piece, we argue that the MMT fiscal policy proposition of government spending into the private sector, with inflation being the only limiting factor, is not only needed for a real recovery from the great recession but is inevitable.

We have feelings and are sentient, and economics that is a pure science of efficiency can't cover that level of sophistication, or nuance.
