Welcome to episode 68 of Activist #MMT. Today is part two of my conversation with Sam Levey, on the core assumptions of mainstream economics. Sam is a research scholar with the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity, a PhD candidate in economics at the University of Missouri Kansas City, or UMKC, and a co-founder of the online advocacy group, Deficit Owls. Sam starts by giving an update on his progress towards his PhD. After that, our conversation is all about the core assumptions of mainstream economics, which is currently neoclassical.
Much more can be found in the show notes for part one. But for now, let's get right back to our conversation.
