Adding some welcome insight to money, economics and the human condition. All economics education should start with MMT!
They take a bone dry topic and explain it in a way that is both compelling and easy to understand. The presenters Christian & Patricia have a relaxed warmth about them that is infectious. You feel like like you are being talked to, not at. The interviewees are fascinating too. Quite the eye opener! And it's a subject that needs to be discussed. So get listening. Trust me, you'll be holding court in the next pub chat.
An excellent introduction to MMT
The Pileus podcast is part of a growing awareness of Modern Monetary Theory, and helps to explain the lessons of 20 plus years of theorising, in a light-heart and informative way! If you still think Tax pays for public expenditure then this is a must listen.
