Modern Monetary Theory and the Recovery: "Soon"

Modern Monetary Theory and the Recovery is in its final formatting stages. It is an introduction to Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), but directed at a particular subject: why has growth been sub-par in recent decades, and what could be done differently?

In addition to covering policy discussions, there is an overview of what MMT says, and what it does not. It also discusses many good faith critiques of MMT. There is a great deal of misinformation floating around with respect to MMT, and so the objective is to return to what the theory actually says.

The release date is not finalised, but March 8 seems to be likely for the e-book editions. The paperback edition might be ready for simultaneous release, but a delay seems probable.

Similar length to my other books. Excluding end matter, word count is just below 50,000 words. A focused handbook, not a full length textbook that aims to cover everything.

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.)
