MMT Meets the Marxists

MMT Meets the Marxists

What is an advocate of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) to think when some Marxists accuse MMT of being not much of a theory, and MMT-ers as bourgeois apologists for capital? Does MMT naively advocate printing money? Do we believe we can print our way out of economic and ecological crises?

Can we flush out the irreconcilable differences between Karl Marx and MMT?

With the help of economist, Dr. James Juniper, we check our theoretical tyres for punctures.
