Modern Monetary Theory (MMT): An Alternative Path to Economic Prosperity in the Global South
July 27, 2021 at 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree; registration in advance is required
Dr. Byron E. Price, public administration professor at MEC, participates in a panel discussion about modern monetary theory (MMT) at an event hosted by The Green Institute.
Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) has the potential to be disruptive innovation in the economics discipline. Like public administration, it’s an amalgam of law, history, finance, banking, public policy, and philosophy.
The Green Institute is hosting this important discussion which will explore whether MMT can serve as an alternative path to economic prosperity in the global south. The current monetary system unduly favors a few countries while keeping the global south indebted and impoverished. This broad-ranging discussion will examine food and energy insecurity, human rights, debtors’ rights, privacy rights, antitrust, public health, payments systems innovation, participatory budgeting, decarceration, grassroots mobilization through the MMT lens.
