MMT IN THE NEWS

Sorry am traveling in California and cannot do an original post. Meantime, here are some tidbits.

This is an interview I did on MMT, mostly on the “nature of money”:

That was a great interview on the nature of money.

I have linked to it on my site: http://socialdemocracy21stcentury.blogspot.com/20

I have always thought that anthropologists and historians had some brilliant insights into the nature and history of money many decades ago, e.g., A. H. Quiggin's A Survey of Primitive Money: The Beginnings of Currency (1949) or Philip Grierson's The Origins of Money (London, 1977).

It is a pity that mainstream economics is only dimly aware of this work.
