In last week’s conversation with Christian, professor of Economics John T. Harvey laid out an easy to follow, step-by-step, jargon-free way to understand macroeconomics. This week John addresses some of the pushback Modern Monetary Theory has been receiving from mainstream commentators, and talks about using metaphors, stories and historical examples to illustrate his insights. John also introduces us to his creation, The Cowboy Economist.
