Forum on Modern Monetary Theory

Joined by other progressive candidates from New Jersey and Florida, leading economics scholar Dr. Fadhel Kaboub facilitates a 90 minute forum on Modern Monetary Theory. MMT is a macroeconomic framework that says monetarily sovereign countries like the U.S., U.K., Japan and Canada are not operationally constrained by revenues when it comes to federal government spending. In other words, such governments do not need taxes or borrowing for spending since they can print as much as they need and are the monopoly issuers of the currency.
