Activist #MMT - podcast

Mar 6, 2020

This snippet comes from episode seventeen of Activist #MMT with Geoff Ginter (Twitter/@geoff_ginter), at around the six minute mark.

Geoff talks about how popular uprisings throughout history fail because, although people understand that something is very wrong, they are unclear what the problem is let alone their true solutions. This indecision makes it easier for them to be divided and conquered.

Geoff says that you can't escape your prison if you don't realize you're in prison, and if you can't recognize the walls of that prison. MMT, Modern Monetary Theory, helps define the walls of that prison. He considers the video Angry Birds and Deficits by economist Stephanie Kelton, to be his lightbulb moment, where he first saw the walls of his prison.
