If you didn't make the 2020 Harcourt Lecture featuring Professor Stephanie Kelton this week, you can now watch it in full here.
Professor Kelton is a Professor of Public Policy and Economics at Stony Brook University, and a senior economic adviser to Bernie Sanders’ 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns. Professor Kelton was recently listed by Bloomberg as “one of the 50 people who defined 2019”. The lecture was entitled 'The Deficit Myth', and explored MMT, Modern Monetary Theory - a concept that proposes government deficits, that avoid inflation, can help fight a myriad of problems including inequality, poverty and unemployment, climate change, housing, and health care.
