Product description

In recent years a new approach to macroeconomics has been developed that challenges conventional wisdom and uncovers how money 'works' in the modern economy. This book synthesises the key principles of Modern Money Theory, exploring macro accounting, currency regimes and exchange rates in both the USA and developing nations. Randall Wray addresses the pressing issues of how misunderstandings about the nature of money have caused the current global financial meltdown, and provides fresh ideas about how policymakers around the world should address the continued weaknesses in their economies.

Review quote

'This book paves the way for another revolution in macroeconomics. Building on the insights of the most important thinkers of the 20th Century, Wray shows us how an economy with modern money works and, more importantly, how it can be used to lift us to a more prosperous tomorrow.' - Stephanie Kelton, University of Missouri-Kansas City
