In this episode of Macro n Cheese, economy expert and blogger Ellis Winningham joins Steve Grumbine to talk about the biggest economic myths, exposing lies that neoliberals tend to consistently tell mainstream such as the need to "reduce the deficit" or have a "Government surplus". Ellis' passion for economic justice leads him to promoting Modern Monetary Theory relentlessly. He aligns himself with experts in the movement that promote Federal Government programs to end wage suppression. As Federal taxes DON"T fund spending, it is possible to fully implement programs that level the playing field and lift the 99% out of perpetual cycles of poverty that are brought about by austerity.
Now..... Enjoy the very next episode of Macro n Cheese!
