Dr. Arjun Jayadev is a young Assistant Professor of Economics at U. Mass – Boston with a strong commitment to progressive policies to make the economy work for the 99%. He explains what money “really” is, and discusses matters such as how banks “create” money, why we don’t want to be on a “gold standard”, the role of the Federal Reserve Bank, the differences from a policy standpoint between household and national debt… and what genuinely progressive policies on money, debt and banking would look like.
