I’m always playing catch-up. In this case, the fun started when I more or less stumbled on Cory Doctorow wrote a good explainer about modern monetary theory from Mark Frauenfelder (@Frauenfelder) writing for BoingBoing on May 15, 2020. I added it to the News and Commentary page and then, because I’ve been reading and adding Doctorow to this site for some time, I thought to gather them all in one place and fill in with pieces I’d missed. Here then, the results of an evening browse. What I found is below the tweets, with links to the pages where they are included on this site.
While he’s been thinking and writing about MMT for several years now, on June 10, 2020, Doctorow did such a fine job of summarizing the main points on Twitter, that I wanted to capture them.
