Law and Political Economy Project presents International Law of Money Feb 8, 2021
For the past two decades, the legal construction of money has received increasing attention from scholars of history and (heterodox) economics. Legal scholarship on the international law of money has lagged behind. Yet, it is widely recognized that international monetary dynamics are key to the democracy-curbing effects of neoliberalism as expressed through the ‘Washington Consensus’ and enforced by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). This panel is aimed at exploring the wider context of the international law of money (which is central to the international dimensions of neoliberalism) encouraging the development of this area of scholarship as a conscious sub-field of international law.

In an effort that is both ambitious and potentially very useful, the folks at Real Progressives (@RealProgressUS) have launched a Book Club webinar on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm pacific, 8:30pm eastern.
Virginia Cotts — Co-Editor in Chief and Media Producer at RP — @folly_oh; Ramona Massachi — Host — @RamonaMassachi; and John Siener of the RP media team have come up with a good format. Each session begins with Stephanie Kelton reading a portion of The Deficit Myth for Audible. RP provides the text on a shared screen. Part two of each session features a principal MMT contributor. Particpants – there were 145 people on Dec 29 – have a dedicated chat channel and a second one for posing questions. Participants can pose, read and up-vote questions in that channel. In order of popularity, the questions are read aloud, either by the organizers or the participant who posed the question.
