I am writing this when at the launch event of the Gower Initiative for Modern Money Studies - which I think is an amazing new intitiative intended to promote the idea of modern monetary theory here in the UK.
There is good reason for this blog though. The GIMMS website has been launched, and it includes some great factsheets on MMT issues. They are available here.
For these reasons alone I welcome this initative - and strongly believe they will achieve a lot more than this, although it is a great start.
