Bob shares an interview he did on C. Jay Engel’s podcast, Austro-Libertarian, where they discussed Doug Henwood’s critique of MMT that ran in the socialist publication, Jacobin magazine. Henwood’s article was an excellent summary of the academic roots of MMT, and thus supplements the pragmatic discussions (from the perspective of Warren Mosler) that have recently been featured on The Bob Murphy Show.
