CSEP is excited to announce the first event of the 2022-2023 academic year: a talk by Professor Randall Wray on Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) and how this model locates itself within the current inflationary climate.
CSEP is excited to announce the first event of the 2022-2023 academic year: a talk by Professor Randall Wray on Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) and how this model locates itself within the current inflationary climate. The event will be composed of a 45-minute talk followed by a further 45-minute Q&A session. We look forward to hearing Professor Wray's fascinating insights on the growing theoretical framework of MMT, particularly at a time when the model is increasingly criticised by those pointing to inflation.
Professor Wray is the 2022-2023 Teppola Distinguished Visiting Professor at Willamette University and has previously taught at Bard College, the University of Missouri-Kansas City, and the University of Denver. He is one of the developers of Modern Money Theory and his most recent books are Why Minsky Matters (Princeton, 2016), A Great Leap Forward (Elsevier, January 2020), and Handbook of Economic Stagnation (Elsevier, 2022 with Flavia Dantas). Wray has been a visiting professor at the Universities of Paris, Bologna, Bergamo, Rome, UNAM in Mexico City, UNICAMP in Brazil, and Tallinn University in Estonia. He is the 2022 Veblen-Commons Award winner for lifetime contributions to Institutionalist Thought.
