Bill Mitchell completely changed the way I view the economy. We must find a way to make Modern Monetary Theory mainstream. In my humble opinion, if every Australian were to even just have the most basic awareness of Modern Monetary Theory then we could have at least some form of a job guarantee (even if only a limited trial version) within a decade (perhaps even less?) after mass public awareness of Modern Monetary Theory. We obviously need to be very careful that we articulate the principles of Modern Monetary Theory accurately, however we need some kind of organised mass awareness campaign such that basic awareness of the fundamental points of Modern Monetary Theory are just basic common knowledge. We don't want to be overzealous and potentially do more harm than good, but we need a calm well thought out strategic plan to make awareness of the essential principles of Modern Monetary Theory just basic everyday common knowledge. A big thank you to Bill Mitchell for all the work he has done on the interrelated topics of Modern Monetary Theory and a Job Guarantee!
