2nd International European MMT conference

Next week, the 2nd International European MMT conference will take place online. We start on Monday, Sep 13, with keynote speeches by Warren Mosler, Alla Semenova, Randall Wray and Zdravka Todorova. Tuesday we’ll have panels on unions and demand policy, inequality, Green New Deal and the political economy of fiscal policy. On Wednesday, we will have presentations by academic scholars. More information can be found on the conference website https://www.mmtconference.eu/program/. We will post links to Youtube soon. No registration is necessary except for the academic presentations on Wednesday. We will announce shortly how registration will happen and when.

Recently, MMT has gained a lot of attention because, according to The NY Times, “[I]f you happened to be watching C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” on June 17, you saw a remarkable display of Modern Monetary Theory’s political influence. Representative John Yarmuth, Democrat of Kentucky, who is the chair of the House Budget Committee, gave a full-throated defense of the deficit-friendly theory to Washington’s sometimes skeptical viewership.”
