๐ŸŽง Modern Monetary Theory and its challenge to Neoliberalism (Future Tense)

Listened Modern Monetary Theory and its challenge to Neoliberalism from Radio National

After more than four decades of dominance, free-market capitalism is facing a challenge.

Itโ€™s rival, the rather blandly named Modern Monetary Theory, promises to return economic planning to a less ideological footing.

Itโ€™s also keen to strike a blow against the โ€œsurplus fetishโ€ that many economists now blame for declining public services and growing inequality.

This episode of Future Tense explores Modern Monetary Theory as an alternative to neoliberalism. Antony Funnell leads a discussion of the promises and problems associated with the idea.
