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, the public conversation about MMT and the economic policies and practices of sovereign nations is increasingly both inter and multi disciplinary (Economics, Humanities, Law, Sociology, etc.) Below principle MMT economists is a growing list of established and emerging contributors from multiple disciplines.
