The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office is proud to cosponsor the Second International Conference of  Modern Monetary Theory “Public Money, Public Purpose, Public Power” taking place at the New School for Social Research from September 28-30, 2018, in New York City.

Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is a revolutionary movement looking to turn economics on its head. Moving past the language of austerity or the assumption that there is not enough money to pay for social programs that benefit the many, MMT starts with the idea that governments spend before they collect taxes and this simple fact opens up the conversation on “how” we “pay for things.” When money is not a non-factor in making this decision, the issue becomes the idea of political will of government officials. For this reason, MMT has opened a space for ideas like a Federal Jobs Guarantee, universal healthcare, and free college education.

The conference will feature a number of leaders of MMT, including Stefanie Kelton (former economic policy advisor to Senator Bernie Sanders), Raúl Carrillo (New Economy Coalition), and Kate Aronoff (journalist).

This event is open to the public. A small donation is requested, but no one is turned away for inability to pay.
