Delman Coates, "We seek to build a diverse, grassroots, bi-partisan movement that endeavors to address poverty, wealth concentration, unemployment, affordable housing, health care, public education, the climate crisis, and household debt. We recognize in Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), a credible, highly impressive, and genuinely public-spirited alternative to the disastrous economic stewardship offered by the old guard of the economics profession that brought us the Great Recession and continues to prioritize the private interests of the financial sector over the public good.
