Money and Public Purpose – A Macro Perspective
Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) argues that the government’s power to create money gives us much more fiscal space to tackle problems like global warming and increasing inequality than is acknowledged by orthodox economics.
In this five-session, ten hour course, students will get a taste of macroeconomics — the study of the overall determination of output, employment and prices — from the MMT perspective. Upon taking this course students will be able to understand and participate in current economic policy discussions.
