Congratulations! You have found Guerrilla Capitalism

The other night I was thinking about thi [...]

We just finished three more of Charles' books, so it was an opportune time to have him back on for another podcast. [...]
The Disturbing Rise of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT)
(Read on Medium) Lately, we've suddenly been hearing a lot about Modern Monetary Theory ("MMT") in the mainstream media. It could be that with the election of Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez to congress, MMT's star will rise with hers as she is reportedly an adherent and possibly views MMT as a means to fund her Green New Deal. As we see below, MMT has been around for some t [...]
