Some Working Papers
Most of my work is finally published in one way or another. But some academic publications are inaccessible to people without library subscriptions.
I used to publish all my research in working paper form (which was the traditional way) before it was published in final form somewhere.
I stopped doing that when I decided to put my work out in blog post form. My blog posts are effectively, mostly just notes that I write as part of my daily research work.
That is not exclusively so because I found that journalists that I often work with liked my updates on data releases and found it was easier to get them from my blog rather than try to track me down during the day given my normal commitments.
Also I write a lot of thing things that do not necessarily show up as blog posts because I have also learned over time as a writer that the academic style is not easily built up from my blog style writing.
The level of discipline is quite different.
So I thought I would make some of my writing this year so far that has or will be published in formal outlets available via our Working Paper series at the Centre of Full Employment and Equity to make it more accessible to all.
Here are some of those papers:
1. William Mitchell – Preface for Africa’s Last Colonial Currency (Fanny Pigeaud and Ndongo Samba Sylla) (February 2020).
2. William Mitchell – An MMT perspective on the US crisis (August 2020).
3. William Mitchell and Louisa Connors – Capitalism on Life Support (August 2020).
4. William Mitchell – A paradigm shift in Macroeconomics is underway – a cause for celebration (September 2020).
5. William Mitchell – Debt and Deficits – an MMT perspective (October 2020).
