How Do We Pay for a Progressive Policy Agenda? | An Explanation of Modern Monetary Theory with Professor Fadhel Kaboub

Fadhel Kaboub is the President of the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity and an Associate Professor of economics at Denison University.

In his research, he argues that the United States and other countries with sovereign monetary systems can afford to end poverty, ensure full employment and price stability, provide universal healthcare, and ameliorate ecological conditions at a fraction of the costs that society endures under fiscal austerity.

His recent work focuses on the Political Economy of the Arab Uprisings, youth unemployment, and economic inequality. Building upon Modern Money Theory (MMT), he argues that many developing countries need to develop policies that help them regain financial sovereignty in order to achieve full employment and sustainable prosperity.
