Hayek teeb MMT-d

I am absolutely convinced that no government is capable of
politically or intellectually of providing exactly the amount of money which is needed
for smooth economic development
and I should be all in favour
in fact I am convinced that we shall never have decent money again
before we take from government the monopoly of issuing money
and allow competing institutions.. of course under different names
not issue the same money but competing monies and let people decide
which kind of money they prefer to use
of course they already can do this for all sorts of purposes
for example if I decided to ask my employer to pay me in deutsche marks
I suppose I might be able to pursuade him, or I could agree to sell my house
in terms of gold rather then in terms of pound sterling
well very lately it has become legally possible in England
but only quite recently and for the time being for most purposes
you have practically no choice but to use the established currency
I think that has to change
and I doubt even whether at present governments would not effectivly supress at once
any development in that direction they are very keen on preserving their monopoly
because of course their ability to pursue somthing like monetary policy
depends on this monopoly abolishing the government monopoly of the issue of money
would deprive governments of the possibilty of pursuing monetary policy
that is what I want to see
but most people believe that monetary policy is an essential tool of government

Hayek ütleb, et valitsus on monopoolne raha väljaandja(MMT väidab sama). See on tema arvates halb süsteem. Ma ei taha vastu vaielda selles osas, võib olla tõesti on halb süsteem, aga selline see on. Ta väidab, et ükski valitsus ei ole intellektuaalselt ega poliitiliselt võimeline varustama meid sellise koguse rahaga, mis oleks vajalik. Kui praktikat vaadata, siis tundub tal õigus olevat. Ma arvan, et MMT-l niivõrd tõeliste austerlastega probleeme pole. Probleem on minu meelest see ajudeta neoliberaalne avangard, kes räägib vabast turumajandusest. Samuti on probleemsed austerlased, kui nad ära unustavad, et tegemist on valitsuse rahamonopoliga.
