Welcome to episode 75 of Activist #MMT. Today is part two of my two-part conversation with Chris McArdle. Today we discuss online activism, and also the concept of truth versus an academic theory. MMT is not "the truth about economics" as I have, admittedly, often said, it is simply the most convincing economic theory to me (and Chris).
