Trumpi seostatakse MMT-ga

by Vox

Donald Trump on the debt: “You never have to default because you print the money”

….If you want to learn more about MMT, I wrote a long profile of the movement back in 2012 that explains the basics. Before recently, mainstream economists and policymakers could comfortably ignore the movement. Galbraith told me that when, on a panel for an April 2000 event at the White House, he argued that the US’s new budget surplus would harm the economy, the hundreds of economists in attendance laughed in his face.

That’s all changed. The financial crisis created a huge appetite for new economic thinking, and MMT helped meet it. It gained new legitimacy through Sanders’s adoption of Kelton as a senior adviser, first in the Senate and then on the campaign trail, and now it’s made its way into Trump’s rhetoric…..

Kui selleks on Trumpi vaja, et midagi tervemõistuslikku öelda, siis nii olgu. Teised poliitikud ju ei julge midagi niisugust öelda, Bernie Sanders näiteks pole iialgi öelnud seda, mida tema majandusnõunik talle tõenäoliselt öelnud on.
