UWFB: Animated MMT

Friday, 26 March 2021 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Introduction to MMT

Anne & Kev chat with Mischa Herman about what gets a sound engineer excited enough about macroeconomics to produce a 2-part animation on an Introduction to MMT (Modern Monetary Theory).

We chat with Mischa about the basics of how an economy works, and reminisce about war bonds. If you ask us what the MCG has got to do with MMT, you might get more than you bargained for.
