Tuesday October 17, 2017 at 7pm (see livestream link below), 1717 Brittain Road, Akron, Ohio 44310
Fadhel Kaboub, Associate Professor of economics at Denison University, and President of the Binzagr Institute for Sustainable Prosperity
The talk will present the basics of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) and demonstrate that the US can implement true full employment policies to reduce poverty and inequality, to fight climate change, and to improve quality of life for everyone without causing inflation or any destabilizing effects on the economy. The presentation will also address the political and ideological obstacles to these policies and what can be done to overcome such obstacles. Join us for a conversation about a truly progressive public policy agenda.
Special thanks to Michelle Lynn Rosin and Andrew John AJ DiLiddo for hosting the event, Gary C. Noland for audiovisual/technical assistance, and Steven D Grumbine and the Real Progressives team for livestreaming the event.
