Yves here. Richard Murphy has been making short videos that introduce various aspects of MMT. This discussion of how banks create money will be old hat for most readers, but it could help introduce MMT ideas to people in your circle who are not hopelessly resistant. It also introduces double entry bookkeeping as the way to show that MMT holds together. Murphy is on the Mr. Rogers end of the spectrum of economics presenters, which helps.
Modern monetary theory highlights the important role of the government in creating money when it spends. That process makes sure our money has value. But it’s not alone in creating money: banks can do it too. This video explores the implications of that.
