MMT Summer School in Poznań
Earlier this month, the Levy Economics Institute hosted a weeklong summer seminar. Around 60 students from all over the world came to learn about MMT and more. At some point, the Institute will be post videos of the presentations. I’ll let you know when they’re available.
In the meantime, you might be interested in the MMT summer school that’s taking place in Poznań, Poland in mid-August. The call for applications is open now. The fee to attend is reasonable (EUR 200), and it covers registration, lunches, coffee breaks, etc. The application deadline is July 8, 2022, so you’ll have to act quickly to secure a spot if you want to attend. I believe there is funding available to help cover travel expenses.
Some of the top MMT economists in the world will give in-person lectures, while others present virtually.
Here’s a description of the event, from the conference website:
The second edition of the MMT Summer School in Poznań is intended for economics students, PhD students, practitioners and early-career researchers interested in the Modern Monetary Theory. We provide an international learning environment for those interested in deepening their knowledge of the modern money: its origins, the notion of tax-driven money, inflation, modeling MMT's price theory, and the MMT-based policy proposals, such as Job Guarantee and Green New Deal. The School is a hybrid event that features mostly in-person lectures, a special event as well as two online lectures.
Over five days, participants will have an opportunity of attending lectures, presenting their views and ideas, as well as discussing them with highly competent faculty. They will also take part in the special event that focuses on the climate crisis and how we can pay for a Green New Deal from the MMT perspective.
The participants will also improve their critical thinking and analytical skills by attending lectures on modeling economic cycles, complexity and MMT in Minsky.
