Am I the only who thinks Stephanie Kelton's and MMT are just very not good ideas. I just watched an hour long speech she gave and brooo🙄...saying money is infinite, deficits don't matter, government program costs don't matter, and people will ALWAYS want US Treasuries.
First they drink the kool-aid
Then they promise a New Paradigm
Then some suckers vote it in
