Happy New Year!
Happy Federation Day! Can you believe it has only been 111 years? Are we young or what? But wise beyond our years…well for the most part.
Thanks to Plutocracy Files and Occupied Media, here is Australia’s version of Paul Krugman versus MMTers favourite White Collar Criminologist Bill Black
Here’s Australia’s John Quiggin on OWS & fraud
Versus UMKC William K. Black on OWS & fraud
What I’d really like to see is a Neochartalist/MMT debate between Pavlina Tcherneva and John Quiggin or Stephanie Kelton and John Quiggin. Professor Quiggin seems sympathetic to Pavlina as a choice based on Facebook interactions hence my preferred choice; as John Quiggin is currently a Hinkley Visiting Professor at Johns Hopkins University it doesn’t seem entirely beyond the realms of possibility.
You may have noticed things have been a bit quiet here on Modern Money and that has been deliberately so. Modern Money is a resource borrowing from the MMT academics to make it simpler for you to learn Modern Monetary Mechanics.
However I would like to let you know about a few changes to this website. There are a few new links down the right side. You should check them out. I have recorded testimonials (via twitter) about this site and I have added some Resources under the Resources Tab – both Resources and the drop down MMT for Economists are clickable.
Now I would like to introduce you to the MMT Channel. It is a channel where I set up playlists of MMT related news that is uploaded to YouTube. There will be no change to other videos on the site. I hope to be able to bring you a new “show” at the start of each month.
Now not entirely MMT but certainly closely related to the recent ongoing global recession / global financial crisis and the Occupy Wall Street movement; not to mention in the news a lot lately, I give you the Bill Black Show (01:44:01).
Have an MMT Day!
