We hope to encourage many more to learn and have discussions about how it is possible to truly have a sustainable economy on top of improving basic social and health services throughout the United States. We are here to help encourage communities to take part in educating others.

Lecture will begin with an introduction to Understanding Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). During the Theory into Action half of the presentation, the focus will be on health care, infrastructure, education, climate change, and a proposal for breaking the ice through Federal funding of 100% of Medicaid.
