  1. I hate Bill Mitchell’s writing style. He hardly uses “,” and he stretches sentences way too much. And sometimes he uses confusing link words in order to connect his ideas. Nevertheless, he is a brilliant thinker. But I find Warren Mosler, Wray,Galbraith, Hudson, and Fullwiler as easier to read.

    • I’m Australian based and until Peter Cooper ( came along, Bill Mitchell was the only one talking relevantly about Australia. I believe PeterMartin2001 is also Australian based but also mentions a lot about the UK (dual citizen I think).

      • I didn’t know Peter Cooper was australian. I agree with you. Bill Mitchell is one of the founders of MMT; he certainly made it popular in the blogosphere.

  2. Crowding out is real!!! Affluent are crowding out public interest and needs of the poor because of broken policies. Public needs to reclaim authority over its money, stop serving the whims of the rich.

    • “Crowding out” is used in many different senses. Please continue to read the articles in full to understand what is meant by Crowding out here.

    • What Senexx said.
      Also, recent independent IMF study (all competent research does not automatically represent IMF views) found that increased public investment raises output, both in the short term and in the long term, crowds in private investment, and reduces unemployment. Public investment is also more effective in boosting output in countries with higher public investment efficiency and when it is financed by issuing debt.

  3. I was trying to turn the concept of crowding out on its head. U guys are awesome. I’ll keep reading.
