Today, I am heading to the airport for travel to Japan. For the next several…
I have a major reporting deadline today and also have to travel interstate, which means I have no spare time at all. So for today, I am promoting a Podcast I recorded a few weeks ago with Steve Grumbine at Real Progressives. We talked about my recent period living and working in Japan and questions of culture and Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). The discussion goes for just over an hour and you can shorten it by fast tracking with volume set to zero the musical introduction and the musical intermission. Steve’s tastes (heavy metal) are quite disturbing (-: I would sooner like a nice quiet jazz oriented introduction. So save yourself some time and skip the music!
I also thank Steve, Jules and the rest of his team for all the tireless work they do promoting MMT.
At times, the task of getting new ideas through to people is frustrating and one wonders whether any progress if ever being made.
But the growth of the Real Progressives is testament to the fact that more people are becoming aware that we can do things differently and take care of each other in the process.
By the way, I regularly am asked to start a podcast myself.
Apparently some people prefer that communication format to reading. If you think that would be useful, let me know in the comments section and will think about the logistics.
I am in the process of changing things here at present – taking the blog onto a new server in our server farm and getting rid of old plugins that have run out of time (security wise).
The weekly quiz will disappear from here and resurface as an app on MMTed’s home page and be available on call to anyone who enjoys it. Other shifts are coming.
So now is the time to think of new formats.
Change is good.
That is enough for today!
