Travelling all day today …

Summary:
There will be no blog post today as I am travelling for the next 24 hours or so back from the US. It has been a very busy two weeks or so that has taken me to many cities and meetings with many different people. A lot of different agendas to absorb and think about. From West Africa to the struggles within the US, to the Eurozone and the chaos of Britain. But the commonality is a desire to understand MMT and apply it to better deal with the problems that face us and our planet. While I am flying I will not be attending to comments that need moderation. So it might be some time before you see your comment published (or not). I am now preparing for my next foray which will take me to Japan later this month. MMT and the Green New Deal – Labour Party Conference Fringe Event, Brighton,

MMT and the Green New Deal – Labour Party Conference Fringe Event, Brighton, September 23, 2019

While I am out of contact, you might like to view the lecture I gave in Brighton on the Green New Deal.

Thanks to the great work of the GIMMS team – for organising and staging the event.

And thanks to Claire for her excellent filming and editorial work.

You will see that I am not necessarily confident that we can pull this off but it remains that without an understanding of MMT we will not event get close.

Among the albums I am listening to across the Pacific

This song – Preacher’s Kid – is from ace-bass player – Marcus Miller’s – 2018 album on Blue Note – Laid Back.

The song features Kirk Whalum on saxophone, the beautiful voices of Take 6 and alto sax player Alex Han.

Jazz. The best.

That is enough for today!
