Bill Mitchell-en A conversation about MMT
A conversation with Phil Armstrong – GIMMS event
On September 27, 2020, I recorded a live conversation via Zoom with Dr Phil Armstrong, which was organised by the – GIMMS Team
It was a long session and included questions from the attendees (of which there were about 100).
As usual, with Zoom, the audio quality varies but, in general, the sound is okay.
THe format was that Phil asked questions to provoke discussion and then we talked about the answers.
I enjoyed the interaction, although face-to-face is better by far.
Thanks to the wonderful GIMMs team for their dedication in advancing the MMT education initiative. They are tireless volunteers and I hope more people will see their way to offer support for their efforts.

In conversations with key thinkers Phil, in his new book, to be published in November 2020 , ‘Can Heterodox Economics Make a Difference‘ sheds light upon the behaviour of economists and the sociology of the economics profession.
