Relief policies could not prevent widespread economic misery, increasing income inequality and unemployment in the U.S. and the world.

Is Covid-19 relief working? Are large deficits all we need to restart the economy after Covid-19? Is there a risk of inflation after Covid-19? And if there is, what policies could prevent it? What trade policy can help defend American jobs?

On Thursday, April 29, at 5:30 p.m. CET, the Masters in Political Economy of Money and Development is offering a thought-provoking webinar, when Franklin students will have the incredible opportunity to interview the founder of Modern Money Theory (MMT), Dr. Warren Mosler.

Dr. Mosler, who received an honorary degree from FUS in 2014, is an American economist, a fund manager, an entrepreneur, a financial professional, and one of the leading voices in the field of MMT. Dr. Mosler is the author of “The Seven Deadly Innocent Frauds of Economic Policy,” where he debunks the orthodoxies of modern macroeconomic thoughts.
