Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
A radical new understanding for how to build a just and prosperous society



Kelton is to modern monetary theory what Milton Friedman was to American conservatives for a half century - conversational, fierce, relentless.

Kelton's game-changing book on the myths around government deficits is both theoretically rigorous and empirically entertaining. It reminds us that money is not limited, only our imagination of what to do with it. After you read it you will never think of the public purse as a household economy again. Read it!

In a world of epic, overlapping crises, Stephanie Kelton is an indispensable source of moral clarity ... the truths that she teaches about money, debt, and deficits give us the tools we desperately need to build a safe future for all. Read it - then put it to use.

The best book on rethinking economics that anyone will find right now.

In the wake of the financial impact of the coronavirus, she's having a moment ... she's become a rock star in her field.

Kelton is a razor-sharp writer ... smashing shibboleths of conventional economic wisdom.

This book is going to be influential.

One of the most important and accessible books ever written about money

Kelton's book achieves a revolution in political economy.

A leading light in modern monetary theory.

[Kelton] has succeeded in instigating a round of heretical questioning, essential for a post-Covid-19 world, where the pantheon of economic gods will have to be reconfigured.

Convincingly overturns the conventional wisdom that federal budget deficits are somehow bad

The most talked about economics book of 2020

A remarkable book both in content and timing. A 'must read' that is sure to influence many aspects of policymaking going forward
