Reframing Australia’s economy with MMT

Posted on: Mon 3 Feb 2020

Modern Monetary Theory is an economic theory that was up for discussion in Adelaide this month at the Sustainable Prosperity Conference.

A particularly important policy associated with the theory is the Job Guarantee, which could reduce rates of unemployment.

Dr Steven Hail is from the School of Economics at the University of Adelaide and was one of the key organisers of the conference.

Dr Hail joined Small Change‘s Bonnie Parker to discuss what the theory means and how it could be used to reframe Australia’s economy.
