The Trillion Dollar Coin!

February's Topic: The TRILLION DOLLAR COIN


On Thursday, February 28, 2013, the Monetary Literacy Group present "The Trillion Dollar Coin." Join us for a lively discussion on how such a novel proposal could be deployed to inject needed funds into the economy, end the so-called debt crisis and end unemployment.

Glenn will make a short presentation on the legal basis and the MMT view of how such a proposal could come to be.

Greg will make a short presentation on his paper with AMI regarding the Trillion Dollar Coin.

Here are some reading materials that will prepare you to more fully participate in the discussion:
