Ep93 [1/2]: Esha, me, Lenin, and MMT
Part one of my appearance on Esha’s show, Late Nights with Lenin. Esha has me cold read posts by Lenin, written over a hundred years ago, and explains how and why they remain relevant. I admittedly struggle through the readings, but the conversation throughout is very interesting and all anchored by MMT.
Part one is introducing MMT and connecting MMT to Lenin in general. Next week are the readings.
Ep94 [2/2]: Esha, me, Lenin, and MMT
I cold-read two pieces by Lenin, and Esha and I talk about lots of interesting stuff the readings evoke.
Ep95 [1/2] Ramona Massachi: Discussing 2022 and MMT candidates (and our new interview series!)
A second interview with my friend Ramona Massachi, on the 2022 campaign and how it relates to MMT candidates, and our new candidate interview series. Seven are currently scheduled.
Ep96 [2/2] Ramona Massachi: We are in this together, whether we like it or not.
Ramona and I conclude our 2022 campaign/MMT-candidate-interview discussion, and move onto the things we’ve learned since our first interview a year ago. It all centers around the idea of how helping those with the least is critical for saving us all.
Ep97: As a guest on Graham Elwood, discussing debt ceiling and #MintTheCoin.
My eighth appearance on the Graham Elwood show since introducing him to MMT in June of 2018. This one is about the debt ceiling pseudo-crisis, and the profound importance of #MintTheCoin.
Panayotis “Poti” Giannakouros [1/2]: An interactive introduction to MMT
(This episode has no introduction.)
Not an interview, but a complete, interactive, and unique introduction to Modern Money Theory, as conducted by the very first recipient of a PhD through an MMT lens, which he received at UMKC in 1999. It starts with the concept of state power, then proceeds to imposing and forgiving liabilities, and then the definitions of debt, deficit, and a job guarantee. This is part one of a two-hour conference call between ten people including Poti; me; progressive journalist Walker Bragman; the managing editor of The Young Turks, Jonathan Larsen; and activist Ramona Massachi (my guest on episodes 47 and 48)
This is also part of a larger four part series, in which parts one and four will be an interview with Poti on his personal and economic background, and a follow up on his introductory lesson. A brief highlight from episode 70:
Panayotis “Poti” Giannakouros [2/2]: An interactive introduction to MMT
(This episode does not yet have an introduction.)
The introduction lesson is closed out and followed by an in-depth question and answer session. A brief highlight:
