One would like new … Continue reading “Digital Corrections – will crypto save capitalism, and the FED ?”

In the "we are … Continue reading De facto MMT disequilibrating DSGE ?
Has the Phillips Curve finally been buried? Whilst the FT reports on the Fed's new strategy as just another incremental codification of its extremely dovish policy, Reuters reads it as a final straw flattening the curve out of existence: "One of the fundamental theories of modern economics may have finally been put to rest." … Continue reading Funeral of a Classic Curve?

Second, €390bn of the €750bn will be distributed as grants, and hence … Continue reading M & M Push EU Across Rubicon
