Modern Monetary Theory

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Modern Monetary Theory, Modern Money Theory (MMT) or Modern Monetary Theory and Practice (MMTP) is a macroeconomic theory and practice that sees the practical uses of fiat currency in a public monopoly from the issuing authority, normally the government's central bank.[1]

MMT says that the government could use fiscal policy to achieve full employment and money creation to fund government purchases.
