How an MMT understanding informs fiscal stimulus design – Professor William Mitchell

In this presentation, Professor William Mitchell will develop a set of criteria for assessing the likely effectiveness of a fiscal policy initiative. This particular crisis is unusual in that it combines supply and demand elements and government-enforced closures. In that sense, the design of the fiscal policy intervention is particularly difficult.

The presentation will go through a number of desirable fiscal options to match the specific situation using this framework.

We will also discuss why we should not worry about the size of the fiscal deficits that are required to overcome the medical and socio-economic problems created by the coronavirus crisis.

This event is being conducted in conjunction with the Modern Money Australia group’s Seminar Series.

Flattening the Phillips Curve – the Job Guarantee

This video describes the way in which an employment buffer stock framework, which is an integral part of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) flattens the traditional Phillips Curve such that a nation can have full employment and price stability rather than having to use unemployment as a policy tool to discipline inflation.

Conversation MMT founders November 29 2019

On November 29, 2019, I sat down with Warren Mosler in Newcastle, Australia to film a conversation we had about the origins of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), how we came to it, the current state of MMT and future trends, including being part of the narrative associated with the Green Transition aka elsewhere as the Green New Deal. You will hear our concern about how the work we put in place at the outset is now being used in popular debates as well as other anecdotes. We consider the recent YouTube debate that Warren participated in in Italy and clear up the misunderstandings that followed that episode. We provide our own perspective on the way the GND debate is unfolding.
