Icymi, there’s always more good content to add. This one is from June of 2020:

A little cleanup was in order for the site’s Green New Deal page. Research, proposals, programs, resolutions & commentary are now in chronological order. While tidying up, I took another look at Green New Deal for Europe and decided to list the names (and Twitter handles) of the many editors and contributors. In the name of useful redundancy, I added the link to the #GlobalMMT Commentary page. Readers may have noticed that material concerning fiscal and monetary policy for a nation not our own, can often be quite illuminating.
I’ll add more Twitter handles as I find them, perhaps with a little help from this Tweet.
Doubtless I’ve missed more than a few, but the growth in commentary from MMT literate sources has grown significantly over the past decade. Consider: for 2001 through 2016, I’ve found 38 articles published in a range of media. Compare that to 158 published, sometimes with updates, between 2017 and 2020. You’ll find them on two pages: Debates and Controversies and News & Commentary
I added only four in 2021, leading me to wonder if I’m slacking off. Suggestions most welcome, here or via my Twitter feed.

These folks have been hard at it for decades. Stephanie Kelton recently pointed to this from 2012-2013 and so I added it to Functional Finance and the Debt Ratio and the Scott Fullwiler page, just under his MMT 101: A thread in 25 parts.
“This five part series will explore at length (warning!) and in detail (another warning—wonk alert!) the MMT perspective on the debt ratio and fiscal sustainability. While the approach suggests a macroeconomic policy mix and strategies for both fiscal and monetary policies that most neoclassical economists currently believe are unsustainable, ultimately the MMT preference for a significant role for fiscal policy in macroeconomic stabilization is shown to be consistent with traditional neoclassical views on fiscal sustainability.”
