Ep 72 [1/2]: John Harvey: The Battle of the Bulge (and the nitty gritty of Exchange Rate Determination)

I talk with John Harvey about exchange rate determination. This is not an introduction to exchange rate determination but a more in depth followup for those who would like to go deeper into the subject. My full question list and many resources (including several suggestions to get a proper introduction) can be found in the show notes.

Ep 73 [2/2]: John Harvey: The nitty gritty of Exchange Rate Determination

I continue my conversation with John Harvey, going in depth and very specific on the topic of exchange rate determination.

Ep 76 [2/4]: Panayotis “Poti” Giannakouros: An interactive introduction to MMT (part 1/2)

(This episode does not yet have an introduction.)

Not an interview, but a complete, interactive, and unique introduction to Modern Money Theory, as conducted by the very first recipient of a PhD through an MMT lens, which he received at UMKC in 1999. It starts with the concept of state power, then proceeds to imposing and forgiving liabilities, and then the definitions of debt, deficit, and a job guarantee. This is part one of a two-hour conference call between ten people including Poti; me; progressive journalist Walker Bragman; the managing editor of The Young Turks, Jonathan Larsen; and activist Ramona Massachi (my guest on episodes 47 and 48)

This is also part of a larger four part series, in which parts one and four will be an interview with Poti on his personal and economic background, and a follow up on his introductory lesson. A brief highlight from episode 70:
