Can Modern Monetary Theory save the post Covid-19 global economy?
In this episode of the #mastersoffinancepodcast we have a look at Modern Monetary Theory which basically says the government deficits are lot less relevant than a household deficit because they can pay their debts with the money they print. There's a lot more to it than that and we have a look at why the purpose of deficits matter and some interesting policy ideas for governments of the future. #havealisten
