MMT for beginners

Comment on Bradford DeLong on ‘I would not have called MMT “nonsense economics”’

For beginners, the 10 essential points are:
  1. MMT is fake science.
  2. The foundational MMT sectoral balances equation is provably false.
  3. MMTers are too stupid for the elementary math that underlies macroeconomics.
  4. Because the foundations are false, one can safely forget the rest.
  5. The axiomatically correct macroeconomic Profit Law entails Public Deficit = Private Profit.
  6. Therefore, the MMT policy of permanent deficit-spending/money-creation is a permanent free lunch for the Oligarchy.
  7. The lethal effect of MMT policy is NOT on inflation but on distribution.
  8. Fabulous financial wealth is the mirror image of fabulous public debt ($22 trillion and counting).
  9. MMT policy is ultimately NOT for the benefit of WeThePeople.
  10. MMT is political agenda pushing for the Oligarchy in a scientific/social bluff package.#1
