I went to the website where this article was posted. It’s full of MMTers (Modern Monetary Theorists). This “movement”, if you will, is almost cult-like in its devotion. They think that government debt/deficits have no significant, negative consequences. Therefore, they should be used with impunity to stimulate the economy.
If debt is so good I wonder how we are in such bad shape with a debt as big ours.
