Modern Monetary Theory: Snake Oil of the 21st Century

Modern Monetary Theory: Snake Oil of the 21st Century

MMT is dangerous, but it’s popularity is growing.  MMT fluffs over some incredibly complicated subject matters, making it easy to drag people into the weeds, and MMTers take advantage of this to confuse people.  Their goal is not to win debates, but to prevent the masses of the public from listening to the conversation.  MMT wants you to tune out from facts and reason, so that you will listen to the siren song of ‘free’.  The goal of this editorial is to arm you with the tools to refute MMT, once and for all.

If you have not heard of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), you have not been paying attention to the left.  MMT is based on the facts that 1) US debt is held in US dollars, and repaid with US dollars, 2) that the US government can print as much money as it needs, and 3) that because taxes are paid in US dollars, taxation can be used to deplete the supply of money, and in doing so, prevent inflation.That’s actually all true.  US debt is held in US dollars, which the government has the power to print in any amount it wants, and taxes are paid in US dollars so taxes could be used to reduce the supply of money, and prevent inflation……

Hey hey, ho ho… ‘free trade agreements’ got to go!

Exclusive: Trump vents in Oval Office, “I want tariffs. Bring me some tariffs!”

Trump, addressing Kelly, said, “John, you haven’t been in a trade discussion before, so I want to share with you my views. For the last six months, this same group of geniuses comes in here all the time and I tell them, ‘Tariffs. I want tariffs.’ And what do they do? They bring me IP. I can’t put a tariff on IP.” (Most in the room understood that the president can, in fact, use tariffs to combat Chinese IP theft.)

“China is laughing at us,” Trump added. “Laughing.”

Kelly responded: “Yes sir, I understand, you want tariffs.”

Trumpistid teevad revolutsiooni

Trump and the Trumpists

…The Trump presidency is both the outcome and the end of the American version of neo-liberalism. Having commenced crumbling in the era of George W. Bush, the neo-liberal regime managed to regain an appearance of vitality under Barack Obama. With his departure, it was bound to collapse under the weight of its contradictions, and, indeed, absurdities. Clinton’s daring attempt to present herself as advocate of those Americans “working hard and playing by the rules,” while collecting a fortune in speaker’s fees from Goldman Sachs, was destined to fail. So, too, was Clinton’s insistence that it was the historical duty of American voters to elect her as their first female president. Transgendered restrooms infuriated everyone except those seeking access to them, no matter the Obama administration’s attempt to depict bathroom access as a civil right.11 Deep down, no one cared…

Ma arvan, et Euroopas on nüüd sama oodata. Neoliberaalid püüavad rahvusriikide juurde naasta tahtjaid sildistada natside ja fašistidena. Poola hiljutised väljaütlemised Prantsusmaa presidendi aadressil on kõike muud kui diplomaatilised ja Euroopat ühendavad. Ungari katkestas diplomaatilised suhted Hollandiga. Vasakpoolsete jutud üleeuroopalisest fiskaallidust jne on Trooja hobune. Nad väidavad ise, et seisavad neoliberalismi vastu, kuid tegelikkuses seisavad sajaga selle eest.

Püüdke natse, natsism on probleem nr. 1 Ameerikas

Loomulikult on tarvis rassismist rääkida ja tohutu tähelepanu juhtida 500-le natsile Charlottesville’s (USA mastaapides marginaalne seltskond, kes kannab MAGA mütse ja väidab end Trumpi toetavat selleks, et meedialt tähelepanu saada). Steve Bannon oli USA agressiivse välispoliitika vastu ja tõesti, tasuta kolledž oleks sotsialistlik maailmalõpp, aga kordades rohkem militaarkulutusi suurendada, naah, seda saadab vaikus.

Trump ja Bannon

Trump on enda adinistratsioonis peale Steve Bannoni lahkumist ümbritsetud ainult globalistide poolt. Rassismi juttude tõeliseks ajendiks on see, et Trump on olnud globaliseerumise vastane.

Praegune seoses Charottesville’ga toimunu ja meedia spinn, et Trump ei mõistnud natse hukka, sarnaneb kampaania aegse meedia spinniga, kui väidetavalt David Duke kiitis Trumpi kandidatuuri. Trump on kordvalt halvustavalt rääkinud David Duke’st. Peavoolu meediat aga ei takistanud see korduvalt küsimusi esitamast Trumpile seoses David Duke’ga ja arvamusartikleid ketramast, kus väideti, et Duke toetab Trumpi ja Trump ei mõista Duke’i hukka.

Antud olukorras on antifa ja natsid ühe perse kaks kannikat. Ma olen ise USA-s natside rallit näinud ja mingit vägivalda seal polnud. Natside üritused pole just igapäevased USA-s, aga kõikide presidentide ajal on toimunud natside rallid. Antifa aktiviseerumine on viimase aja nähtus ja kui ma tean kümneid natside üritusi, mis pole vägivaldselt lõppenud, siis antifa kohta ma sama öelda ei saa. Ma ei tea ühtegi vägivallatut üritust, kus oleks olnud antifa. Võib olla on neid olnud, aga mina lihtsalt ei tea. Kui Trump mõistis hukka mõlemad pooled, siis oli tal minu arvates õigus. Ma küll ei tea päris täpselt, et mis Charlottesville’s juhtus, kuid kaldun arvama, et vägivalda poleks olnud, kui poleks olnud antifad.

Võib olla on minu järeldused ennatlikud, aga arvan, et Trump on liiga nõrk. Ma pean tema presidentuuri läbikukkunuks.

Brexit Boost: Hiring and Salaries Rise as Supply of Cheap Foreign Workers Falls

As the supply of low-wage labour from the European Union dwindles, Scotland has experienced a “steep increase” in permanent and temporary job hires, with salary growth reaching a 10-month high at the beginning of the third quarter.

Brexit campaigners have long argued that unscrupulous employers have been the only real beneficiaries of Free Movement and mass immigration, and that a better-controlled system would see pay and working conditions improve…..

Global Inflation Hits Lowest Level Since 2009

Global Inflation Hits Lowest Level Since 2009

Inflation in the Group of 20 largest economies fell to its lowest level in almost eight years in June, deepening a puzzle confronting central banks as they contemplate removing post-crisis stimulus measures.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development said Thursday that consumer prices across the G-20—the countries that accounts for most of the world’s economic activity—were 2% higher than a year earlier. The last time inflation was lower was in October 2009, when it stood at 1.7%, as the world started to emerge from the sharp economic downturn that followed the global financial crisis.

The contrast between then and now highlights the mystery facing central bankers in developed economies as they attempt to raise inflation to their targets, which they have persistently undershot in recent years.

Nii palju kvantitatiivsest rahateooriast, peale tohutuid rahatrükke on olukord selline. Kui MMT väitis, et keskpankade “rahatrükk” ei põhjusta inflatsiooni, siis vaadati MMT peale kõõrdi.

Kui ma rääkisin Kreeka võlakriisi ajal, et selle lahendamine on tehniliselt niisama lihtne nagu ECB poolt Kreeka võlakirjade ostmine, siis öeldi mulle, et ma ei saavat aru, et see trükitud raha hakkab kuskil inflatsiooni tekitama.

Trump and the Trumpists

by Wolfgang Streeck

Trump and the Trumpists

…NEOLIBERAL MODERNIZATION comes with a cultural reeducation program. The liberal war against tradition, undertaken by metropolitan elites, and neoliberal economic reforms are related. The first serves as a cover for second. It crowds political economy from public attention. But both are about a redefinition of social solidarity and economic egalitarianism. Social communities based on a shared sense of obligation are always at risk of harboring or relapsing into an attitude inimical to capitalist progress. Neoliberalism champions individual achievement over collective solidarity….
