Thom - - As a long-time listener (I think as far back as 2003 or 2004), I cannot tell you how happy I was to hear you discussing MMT (Modern Monetary Theory) on yesterday’s show. I discovered MMT a couple of years ago and it has totally changed my view of government deficits and debt. Once one learns and understands MMT principles, one realizes that most of the mainstream media does not know what it is talking about when it discusses government debts and deficits. They basically have it all backwards. That is why it is so great to hear you set the record straight. I would highly recommend that you book Professor Stephanie Kelton from the University of Missouri, Kansas City, as a guest to discuss MMT. I think she is one of the most articulate MMT proponents and is exceptionally good at explaining the basic principles in a clear, easy to understand fashion. She has recently been getting some radio airtime (she was interviewed by Sam Seder on his show and by Harry Shearer on his, among others) and even made it to MSNBC (on Chris Hayes’ show) to discuss the Trillion Dollar Platinum Coin. If you could, it would be great if you could devote a whole hour to her. I would also refer you to Warren Mosler’s ebook, “Seven Deadly Innocent Frauds” (link here: http://moslereconomics.com/wp-content/powerpoints/7DIF.pdf ).
