  1. Can MMT work without also being a demand-side tyrant?

    Wait… does Trump actually think rational thoughts re monetary policy vs fiscal discipline? I guess you could argue he’s an MMT’er, but I think he goes with his ‘large brain’ and his ‘gut’, both of which say “I like free money and low taxes, and if I like it it’s obviously a GOLD PLATED policy!”

    Regardless, he’s a bumbling idiotic criminal. I can’t stand him or his enablers, but my guess is he will most likely be re-elected. And if he’s impeached, he’ll probably actually grow his ‘base’ and will win by an even greater margin against a divided & vilified Dem party.

  3. Yeah, he‘s probably an MMT‘er by accident. He is most certainly not having rational thoughts re monetary policy.
    That‘s way above his head. Also, it would require some deliberation and listening to experts.
