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.

we are worth more

What if there was one vote that could be held, one campaign that could be focused on to pass one law that if passed, could help with many of our most serious problems? There is…

Nelson_Mandela-491x500

 He was the greatest leader of my lifetime…   As a student at the University of Colorado in the 1970s, I was part of an effort that fought against apartheid and urged my university to divest. Eventually it did. As a journalist in the 1990s in Colorado and Northern Virginia, […]
