MMT links (explainers, commentary, basics etc).

Post by admin » Sat Sep 14, 2019 5:20 am

An excellent video from the Real Progressives youtube channel that covers a heap of the basics in a pretty non technical manner. It goes for a fair while, but its worth it to watch. You might have to split it into a couple of sittings, that's what everyone seems to do.

This is Pavlina Tchernerva discussing the job guarantee, Pavlina is probably the best MMT-er on the job guarantee. Sorry the audio and video quality isn't great.



Here is some links to Pavlina's pages on the Job Guarantee..
Main page: https://www.pavlina-tcherneva.net/job-guarantee

FAQ page (this is a good quick reference to the job guarantee - I highly recommend this page): https://www.pavlina-tcherneva.net/job-guarantee-faq

A bit more of a technical plan to implement the Job Guarantee: http://www.levyinstitute.org/publicatio ... ementation

A couple of good podcast / mp3 files on MMT, the first is with Cullen Roche who comes from a banking background and he confirms that MMT's claims about how banking works is correct:

The second is with Fadhel Kaboub, who discusses how MMT applies to less developed economies and countries but this raises a bunch of important points for people to understand about economics with MMT in advanced economies like ours (Australia).

This is a link to Christian Reilly's and Patricia Pino's MMT Podcast series:
https://pileusmmt.libsyn.com/
There's over 30 episodes.

I've only listened to a couple of them but I found these two to be interesting

On the job guarantee:


On MMT and economic issues that would be worth considering for Scotland if it sought independence:

This is a cool little animated youtube that sums up Modern Monetary Economics, it jumps pretty quick through things towards the end but otherwise its pretty good.

An interview featuring Kathleen Trambley who is a historian by trade. During her studies she came to wonder how the US was able to spend so much on the war and how war bonds worked (see text below) but went a number of years without a satisfactory answer until MMT came along. The interview is split into two parts each about 20 minutes long.


https://citizensmedia.tv/2018/06/30/kathleentrambley/
Kathleen earned a masters degree in history in 2006. During her studies of World War II, she became intrigued with the question of how, in 1940, the United States spent $9 billion on its entire budget. Then, during the war years, spending increased to $98 billion a year — an eleven-times increase. ($9 billion in 1940 is $160 billion today, $98 billion in 1940 is $1.4 trillion today.)

How could the U.S. increase its spending so dramatically back then, but it somehow cannot do so today? In other words, how could the United States “afford” the war eighty years ago, but cannot “afford” the relatively modest programs today that would benefit the powerless (such as Medicare for all, free college, a living wage, and a federal job guarantee)?

Short little MMT explainer, only goes two and a half minutes and lacks some technical accuracy that goes with being so short but still conveys a number of key points.
