First , let me say I am not a big fan of labels like “conservative” or “liberal”. I believe they are misleading at best.

Leading MMT thinkers and authors insist often and loudly that they are simply trying to describe how money and thereby the economy, government and the private sector work. Whether a capitalist, socialist, communist, or any other -ist, everyone should want to know how the system they exist in operates.

voting line

Just last November, pundits were saying that Obamacare’s troubled rollout doomed it to failure and Chris Christie was so nationally popular, he was the odds on favorite to win the GOP Presidential primary and perhaps the White House.

Job Fair

MMT gets simpler

It occurred to me after I published MMT Part 1 that perhaps it wasn’t the best introduction to MMT. I condensed a lot of information into a relatively short post. Shortly before publishing the post I ran across a video illustrating how modern money works and attached it to the end of the post.
