People and Organizations

While the basics are straightforward and appeal greatly to common sense, we rely upon experts who continue to build a body of knowledge and lead us through the decades-in-the-making thicket of misinformation and disinformation that can inhibit our understanding of how the money systems of sovereign governments actually work. Fortunately we have them, and a growing compilation of links to their writing and presentations for their colleagues, their students and for the general public.

Notably, MMT is increasingly inter- and multi-disciplinary (Economics, Humanities, Law, Sociology, etc.) Below are links to (1) our principle and below them – established and emerging – trusted sources. Then, their affiliations, platforms, think tanks, programs; and networks. See also Modern Monetary Theory for Mainstream Economists h/t @DeficitOwls
