To look beyond GDP and unemployment data, you see a US economy “brutally remade” by 2008’s system crash. Capitalism’s immense social costs!

Pretty sure you gotta pay your rent and eat food, so no you don't control squat.

The Dems did not just fail their historic mission of representing the working class - they abandoned it. Because of this, they have been a net negative for the country for decades. I will vote any candidate that puts a nail in the coffin of Clintonism.

People think Jeremy Corbyn is a weak old Commie but he's the most dangerous man in the UK. I've NEVER known right wing press, BBC, Tories, banking & finance, big business to be so scared of 1 man. If they're against then I'm definitely with him.

Warning: If you’re the type of Leftist who uses the labels “Socialist” or “Communist” to give yourself a sense of intellectual superiority, or to be condescending and/or judgmental towards others, then you’re probably not going to like our platform! We’re about real change.

Right, and MMT has plenty of policy proposals for how to stabilize demand/generate growth, from monetary (ZIRP) and fiscal (tax) reform, financial reg/public banking reform, ed reform, green new deal, crim justice reform, regional dev'pmt, etc. Not just "implement JG and go home"

If you're struggling to find 's work, here's one example, where she clarifies *three times* in the same paper that JG is not a panacea:

measures are ineffective in the absence of sufficient jobs." Which is completely contrary to how you portrayed MMT as saying a JG will fix everything, and also a quite clear/coherent position: a JG is a **necessary but not sufficient** feature of a just labor system.

First of all, MMT knows that obtaining true full employment requires more than technical monetary fixes, which is why MMT academics spend their time advising, supporting social movments, politicians, etc, and conducting popular education campaigns that show a JG is *technically*

possible so that those who believe it's *morally* imperative do not have efforts dashed on cliffs of "feasibility", as has been the case in the past (see Coretta Scott King's efforts being scuttled, in part, by technical economic criticisms in the 1970s:

My play Macbeth is not cursed. Of course not. The curse is on saying "Macbeth" in a theatre that *hath not paid me royalties.*

Full employment: anyone who wishes to work has decent work at decent wage (definition in MMT lit) 100% employment: everyone who could work should work (not our position/MMT does not advocate this!)
