I started writing this piece for inclusion in Gaining CHOICE, our weekly email. But as I read more and more the piece became longer and longer until it was clear the idea of Jobs Guarantees and Modern Monetary Theory warranted a post all of their own.
Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) sounds dry, I know, and in truth, and it is. But it’s likely you’re going to hear a whole lot more about it, and the idea of jobs guarantees, in the coming months and perhaps years.
Because MMT proposes an interesting solution to unemployment. And battling unemployment will be the number 1 agenda item around the country.
