Bernie Sanders’ connections with two UMKC economists run deep

Meet Bernie Sanders’ Kansas City economists.

They’re Stephanie Kelton and William Black, and both hail from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Each has signed on as economic adviser to Sanders’ presidential campaign, formalizing the kind of work they’ve done with the senator from Vermont in recent years.

Sanders’ campaign promises a political revolution fought on many economic battlefields.Sanders wants government-funded health care for all and free tuition at public colleges. He proposes spending $1 trillion on national infrastructure and breaking up the biggest banks. He has called income inequality “the great moral issue of our time.”
