"Economic and Fiscal Functionality through the Lens of Socializing Movements" by Tadit Anderson

The probability of demonstrating the democratic functionality of MMT/ff economic and fiscal policies in an academic or literate fashion to persuade politicians toward a conversion experience is unlikely. Even with our best communicators speaking in a mass media context or other public forums there are various other factors that need to be examined, such as learning styles and self interest.

Readers: This represents a somewhat different perspective and has some analytical flaws which I will comment on later. PROUT can be an adequate starting point for the transformation of economic practices. The point being made by this inclusion is that at least this position does not attempt to validate and justify oligarchy and greed which underlies much of the econo-theology of "Free Market" capitalism, imo.This article also comes from Venezuela, which is attempting to establish a 21st century socialism.
