    Description

    The leading thinker and most visible public advocate of modern monetary theory - the freshest and most important idea about economics in decades - delivers a radically different, bold new understanding for how to build a just and prosperous society.

    Any ambitious proposal - ranging from fixing crumbling infrastructure to Medicare for all or preventing the coming climate apocalypse - inevitably sparks questions: how can we afford it? How can we pay for it? Stephanie Kelton points out how misguided those questions really are by using the bold ideas of modern monetary theory (MMT), a fundamentally different approach to using our resources to maximise our potential as a society.

    We've been thinking about government spending in the wrong ways, Kelton argues, on both sides of the political aisle. Everything that both liberal/progressives and conservatives believe about deficits and the role of money and government spending in the economy is wrong, especially the fear that deficits will endanger long-term prosperity.

    Through illuminating insights about government debt, deficits, inflation, taxes, the financial system and financial constraints on the federal budget, Kelton dramatically changes our understanding of how to best deal with important issues ranging from poverty and inequality to creating jobs and building infrastructure. Rather than asking the self-defeating question of how to pay for the crucial improvements our society needs, Kelton guides us to ask: which deficits actually matter? What is the best way to balance the risk of inflation against the benefits of a society that is more broadly prosperous, safer, cleaner and secure?

    With its important new ways of understanding money, taxes and the critical role of deficit spending, MMT busts myths that prevent us from taking action because we can't get beyond the question of how to pay for it.

    Outstanding book about monetary policy and more.

    One of the most interesting books I've encountered. Narration is by Kelton herself. I had always been extremely fearful off mmt as it is depicted in the media. I'm going to say I was extremely pleased to see that Kelton realises the limits of "money printing". This is a fantastic book but one of the leading person in the field

    Changes the way you think about public money

    An excellent summary of MMT and really makes you question how we could run government fiscal policy.

    Great take on MMT

    The book is well written and presented in a way that generalists can easily follow. It is entertaining and easy to read. The content is well researched.

    MMT - what is it? Find out here - worth a listen

    A well written book on a topic I did not know much about. Good thought provoking concepts presented in a very easy to listen way. Felt it went away from the basic MMT theory for some of the later chapters and became more of a wish list. It is - by design- mostly focused on the position of MMT for large nations / reserve currency issues etc. Would have been interested in how effective MMT could be for small nations that have to pay in another currency for needed items they can not produce - but understand this may be beyond the scope of this book. Overall a very useful listen - I don’t necessarily agree with everything- but very glad I listened to it. Enjoy

    Phenomenal!!

    In my opinion, this book, and the teachings behind it, should be studied in every economics class beginning in high school. An educated populace is a healthy populace, and this is transformative information for our global society.

    Preaching Modern Monetary Theory

    The Author writes and speaks about a macro economic theory like a Preacher is preaching a new religion. People who don't believe that printing money will solve all depth problems are "blind", but by patiently explaining them MMT, some opened their eyes..... The book has too many reptitions. 1/5 of the lenght would have been enough.

    I don't buy it

    Speaker is okay.

    For the rest it seems to me like wishful thinking. Nice sounding goals but in the end it comes down to:
    Government can issue currency as it likes and buy everything that's for sale for it's policies.

    Often mentioned to keep Inflation in check and how Inflation can be measured differently. Has anybody tried to buy a house recently ? For me asset price inflation is inflation since it is part of the stuff I want to own.

    Talking about environment: We are just limited by Ressourcen Not Money supply. so if you use all ressources to the fullest, some might argue if this environmental friendly.

    A big problem might be how to enable people to do stuff that is valuable while at the same time not destroying businesses that key is this stuff.
    And if it is really of value, then the market economy has incentives to do business in these niches.



    Biggest contra argument in my opinion:
    It all runs under the assumption, that the people will continue to use the issued currency. I view the ability to inflate the money supply as the option to defecate in all people's purses holding the issued currency as the dilution takes place. Maybe people won't sell for fiat currency any longer, if this gets too extreme. Have you heard of these decentralized so called crsptocurrencies lately?
    I try to hold the least amount of cash and bonds possible and comvert fiat to stuff I view as assets the fastest way I can (mostly stocks, even though priced historically high, but at the moment more trustworthy to me than most Crypto) since I don't want to hold it when another quintillion is created over night.


    In case of Moslers kid's: if dad makes requests all to silly, do other stuff for your neighbor and earn other currency, that buys you other privileges.
    If not possible And dad gets overly crazy with his requests, they could leave home as soon as old enough. Old enough may be dependent on the "pain caused by misallocation", the madness level of dads wishes to earn his cards.

    I view myself as austrian school type and think people like Milton's Friedman got it mostly right. Basic income by negative income tax proposed by him doesn't sound that bad either, doesn't it?

    Another good read:
    Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell ("Enjoy the scarce ressources that have alternative uses" Mantra)

    and
    Economics by Mankiw &Taylor



    Best wishes from Europe, no financial advice

    Wünsche diesem Buch eine weite Verbreitung

    Wichtiges Thema gut verständlich und überzeugend erklärt. Durch das Buch habe ich viel gelernt und ich werde das Wissen weitergeben wo immer ich kann. Sehr befreiend war die Erkenntnis dass Vollbeschäftigung und eine gute Grundversorgung für alle auch über Konjunkturzyklen hinweg aufrecht erhalten werden können und wie man trotzdem genug Möglichkeiten hat eine Inflation zu vermeiden.

    A worldview shattering book, explained in simple everyday terms. A must read for any citizen who cares deeply about public policy. Read it, re-read it, and then share it with everyone you know.
