offsite link #078 MMT & Crisis Tue Mar 28, 2017 17:34 | Tom O'Brien

This week I am delighted to welcome back Alexander Douglas to show. Alex is a lecturer in philosophy at St. Andrews University, and is the author of ?The Philosophy Of Debt?. This show digs deeper into the murky world of understanding the differences and possible syntheses between MTT and Marxist economics. We discuss the problems an inflationary crisis poses to MMT, the stability of MMT and a job guarantee under times of duress, and Kalecki?s class based critique of full employment policies. We also discuss keynsian accounting identities, what they mean for marx?s ideas on profits driving investment, and the impact of government investment upon our understanding of Marxist economics. Enjoy!

This week I am delighted to welcome back C. Derick Varn to show. Derick, a regular guest, last appeared on the show on the Donald Trump Election special. I got quite a bit of feedback on that show, with a number of requests to get Derick back on the pod, to set him straight on MMT. What starts out as a feisty affair, eventually settles into a Marxist love-in, where we end up essentially agreeing about everything, and decide to get married. We also discuss the idea of a Church of Marx, something very dear to my heart. The music on this episode was: ?The Order of the Pharaonic Jesters? by Sun Ra and his Arkestra ?Song no.1.? by Sun Ra and his Arkestra Enjoy!

We discuss the role of Britain in the current geopolitical scene, and how and why finance plays such an important role in the UK economy. We also talk about why neoliberalism is such an overused and misused term, the recent Brexit fiasco, and the rise of China with it's new Silk Road. You can find Tony's book here: https://www.versobooks.com/books... You can also find Tony's excellent blog here: http://economicsofimperialism.bl...

This week we have a change of tack, a complete break from the Donald and that jazz. We delve into the shady of world of Professional Boxing, with the former Boxing Manager, Gambler, Gangster, Jazz Pianist, Writer, and Fight-Fixer, Charles Farrell. Boxing is a sport that has always fascinated me. It?s much more than a mere sport - it?s a metaphor for life itself, full of light and shadow, failure and redemption. Charles has led a life of a pulp-fiction novel character, from living on the streets of Boston from the age of 12, and playing piano in the hotels and brothels of Boston, to managing former heavyweight champion of the world, Leon Spinks. Charles is also starring in a new documentary, Ditry Games, about the corruption and fixing in the world of sport, and is appearing in the new book ?The Bittersweet Science?, a collection of essays from some of the greatest writers on boxing, which is due out early next year from the University of Chicago Press.
