Activist #MMT - podcast

Mar 27, 2022

Welcome to episode 114 of Activist #MMT. Today's part two of my two-part conversation with Gregg Stebben. In part one, I gave Gregg a broad introduction to MMT, its basic policy implications, and some of the major myths it shatters. Today in part two, we branch out to a wide-ranging conversation about the state of the world and how MMT does and does not relate to it.

(A list of the audio chapters in this episode can be found at the bottom of this post.)
