Ep. 51: The Deficit Myth (w/ Stephanie Kelton)

Economist Stephanie Kelton gives Briahna a crash course in monetary policy and why the United States would actually benefit from increased deficit spending - so long as it flows toward working people, not stock buybacks. Stephanie makes the case that, in the midst of the historic economic crash that COVID-19 is causing, the federal government could go much farther than last week's stimulus package to ease economic pain and prevent mass layoffs.
