“The Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and How to Build a Better Economy,” by Stephanie Kelton is a phenomenal best seller that explains how the monetary system works in countries like the US, the UK, Japan, etc. that have a sovereign currency. The book is about economics, but Kelton writes about the monetary system in a language that non-economists can understand.
We will read and discuss chapters 5-8 of the book each month. Discussion questions will be sent out when possible. We encourage you to check out videos of interviews and presentations featuring Stephanie Kelton. Here’s a few videos to start with:
