"Deficit Myth" Out

 Stephanie Kelton's the Deficit Myth: Modern Monetary Theory and the Birth of the People's Economy (affiliate link) has been published, and is selling like hotcakes.

I am close to finishing it, and I have been impressed. I will do a longer article (more impressions than a formal review) in the coming days.

Later on, I will be using it as the backup reference for a section on fiscal policy in my MMT primer.

Also on the MMT book front, Pavlina Tcherneva has a book on the case for the Job Guarantee out (affiliate link). It has already been released in some European countries, but not available yet here in North America. I will certainly be looking at it when it is available.

    1. Thanks for the heads up. I was fighting with my book then, and so missed it.

Note: if you want to post comments from Apple devices (iPhone, iPad), you apparently need to turn off "prevent cross-site tracking" in Safari privacy settings. (The reason presumably is that another URL handles comments, and so the user session needs to be preserved when redirected to that site. I don't like this, but this is not enough to make me switch my hosting service.)
