Modern Monetary Theory

May 16, 2020 | Economics


Modern Monetary Theory or Modern Money Theory (MMT) or Modern Monetary Theory and Practice (MMTP) is a macroeconomic theory and practice that describes the practical uses of fiat currency in a public monopoly from the issuing authority, normally the government’s central bank. [1] Effects on employment are used as evidence that a currency monopolist is overly restricting the supply of the financial assets needed to pay taxes and satisfy savings desires. [2] [3] MMT is an evolution of chartalism and is sometimes referred to as neo-chartalism.
