    Again it is irrelevant. There is nothing to learn from the rules and hierarchy of any internet site. We already have the information from analysis into firm organisation....

    You in full pretend mode? It wasn't me that referred to enfeebled Georgism. That was your paper. Oooo, first time you mentioned rent in the labour market. Let's go with that....

    You present a paper that shows that Georgism is enfeebled without referring to capital gains and then you backtrack? That's pathetic! Of course you ignore rent in the labour...

    That you think poncing around on social media can replicate an economic paradigm doesn't suggest to me a logical debate is possible.

    This all random cobblers to your original post. Perhaps you need to construct a post on why China has been successful, despite not really being market socialist? Rambling about...

    You don't replicate economic paradigms pishing about on social media. Have a word with yourself! You're only referring to different forms of communication. It can only pick up...

  12. Reiver liked a better world's post in the thread MMT: overcoming the political divide..

    Agreed; ….Keynes, Lerner, you, and I (an MMT'er).....and Marx.... are all 'socialist'; cf mainstream labour parties like those in Britain and Australia which are mainstream...

    I certainly see your point, but we also must recognise that macroeconomic policy is often used to hide from social change. It becomes misrepresentation of Keynes on tiresome...

  14. Reiver replied to the thread MMT: overcoming the political divide..

    That does not dispute my point. Even if we refer to optimal macroeconomic policy we do not deliver the socialism that Keynes supported. Too much focus on such policy can...

    There is no free market though, there are only different forms of capitalism with different levels of market concentration (and labour market exploitation). Let's use Keynes...

    Nope. Workers receive compensation according to the value of their labour. We'd expect reduced wage distributions, which are often really artificially engineered (e.g. use of...

    It certainly, at the very least, needs full employment which also delivers a living wage. Its arguably here where you see the problems associated with macroeconomics. Take...

    I struggle not to agree with you over Krugman. To the right wing he is seen as a dangerous type; a reaction reflecting how any knowledge of economics is threatening to them....

    I knew you'd put your foot in it. You'd think you'd be able to avoid cliche like "correlation is not causation"? The construction of hypothesis is paramount. That then allows...

    You're repeating what I said. Keynes only saw a role for austerity during threat of fiscal overheating. Why bring that up? Naff all relevance to MMT or current economic...

    What on earth are you rambling on about? Keynes referred to how austerity should only be used in particular circumstances (i.e. active fiscal policy isn't needed when the...

    You don't understand what monetarism means. Central Bankers aren't monetarists. They simply adopt inflation rules and adapt interest rates accordingly. Complete red herring!...

    Your reaction is expected. It is standard right wing cognitive dissonance in overdrive. Once economic reality is mentioned there is no where to go. Monetarism failed. It was...

    Labour did craft something a tad more relevant with their previous support for People's QE. However, I don't think the answer will come from any macroeconomic context. Indeed,...
