S1Ep9: Modern Monetary Theory with L Randall Wray, Weird Isaac & Super Elliot, Ezekiel & His Dog
Economics is a one semester thing in the education system. But it's a critical topic that influences all sorts of things in our society.

Randall Wray, professor of Economics at Bard College, Senior Scholar at the Levy Economics Institute, and one of the founders of MMT, about how our government works and how we can go about teaching our children.
We're also graced with some stories by Isaac and Elliot (Weird Isaac and Super Elliot), as well as Ezekiel telling the story of Ezekiel and his dog.
