Love seeing Steve Keen

I love hearing from Steve Keen about climate change and debt jubilees. This is economics for the people! I don’t like the music though.

They make you smarter progressives

Ever get stumped on economics attacks by the right or centrists? They how are you going to pay for it question? A lot of progressives have their hearts in the right place but fail to take their minds there. These guys will hold your hand educate you on how our economy is broken today and how a progressive economy works. We need to have our hearts and minds in the movement if we want to be more successful. I got three words for you. Modern Monetary Theory. Learning more about this will help you understand how the Green New Deal works, and how important it is for our climate as well as our economy

Great Info, Hate the Music

Grumbine is a great host and true champion of MMT, has great guests, great conversations! I just CANT STAND THE MUSIC. It's extremely grating. Nothing against metal, I just don't think it works for the kind of show you're trying to do. But keep fighting the good fight.
