Brown Bag Lunch Series – Modern Monetary Theory
June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Speaker: Carroll Perry taught economics at Philips Andover for the last 12 years of his career. Prior to that, he spent 25 years as an international banker with BankBoston. He has lived extensively in Latin America and Asia and, after college, he and his wife served in Brazil as Peace Corps volunteers.
He will discuss Stephanie Kelton’s new book, The Deficit Myth whereby she argues that the debate over deficits is real, but the language of the debate is wrong. Conventional economists are skeptical, but Kelton makes a strong case for thinking about deficits in entirely different terms.
Bag Lunch Talks are free for Ipswich seniors and museum members, and $5 for non-members.
