Banking's Italian Roots?
Steve Keen
Steve Keen (born 28 March 1953) is an Australian-born, British-based economist and author. He considers himself a post-Keynesian, criticising neoclassical economics as inconsistent, unscientific and empirically unsupported. The major influences on Keen's thinking about economics include John Maynard Keynes, Karl Marx, Hyman Minsky, Piero Sraffa, Augusto Graziani, Joseph Alois Schumpeter, Thorstein Veblen, and François Quesnay.

    I think an interesting twist on the topic is Ingo Sauer (german economist) who made the point that money is backed by assets in the real world, and adds to the story the notion that govs cannot spend more than they can back by giving out bonds. I think this is a more natural way of looking at money than the mmt view that there is no restriction at all. I think people are scared of mmt as they think it means reckless spending is ok. Of course it is not, and mmt does not say that, but people believe that mmt says this. Adding Sauers notion to the story would in my opinion make the mmt more digestible.
