MNE MMT sucks. Comment on the Principles of MMT.

Plus Fact is that MMT is refuted on all counts. Plus

Many people fail already at the first step and fall into the Fallacy of Insufficient Abstraction. Plus Differentiation is the inverse operation to aggregation. Differentiation is methodologically superior. Plus MMT is another falsified economic theory. Plus The logical evolution of money. Plus

MMT has to be praised for debunking mainstream monetary theory but bashed for messing up macrofoundations. Plus Problems with fiat money arise only with abuse/corruption, that is, with MMT’s deficit-spending/money-creation. Plus MMT’s social policy is just another political fraud. Plus Economic theory deals with the logical origin of the abstract entity firm. Plus Money (= central bank deposits) is created and destroyed by the autonomous transactions between business and household sector. Plus MMT is refuted. MMT is a political fraud. MMT is scientifically indefensible. Plus MMTers are NOT the Legitimate Sovereign but creatures from the proto-scientific gutter. Plus In economics, psychobabble does not help. Plus The Profit Law tells one in no uncertain terms that the market economy will eventually break down BECAUSE of macroeconomic losses. Plus Microfoundations is a failed approach and this requires a paradigm shift from microfoundations to macrofoundations. Plus

Roughly speaking, if growth ends the market economy will break down. Plus Economics has to be built upon clearly stated premises, i.e. upon a set of axioms. Plus  Newton’s Principia starts with the famous 'Axioms or the Laws of motion'. Plus Even the Austrians apply axiomatization. Plus Let's put methodology aside and have an experimentum crucis. Plus MMT is materially and formally inconsistent.

 

WCI #DrainTheScientificSwamp. Links on Nick Rowe’s ‘Explaining S=I: Inventories vs Adding up Individuals’. Plus Simple algebra tells everyone that saving is NEVER equal to investment. Plus The fact that economists still claim ― 80+ years after Keynes committed the lethal blunder ― that I equals S is due to their utter scientific incompetence. Plus “S=I is an accounting identity, and accounting identities are true by definition.” will forever stand out as one of the most idiotic statements in the history of so-called economic thought. Plus There is NO economics that satisfies the criteria of science, only senseless blather.

 

ES Urgent: Taking politics out of economics.  Comment on Barkley Rosser on ‘100 Percent Of US Senate Against MBS’. Plus  Your foreign policy competence is even worse than your economics competence. Plus Wouldn’t it be much more rewarding for all to do some scientific homework and to figure out what profit is? Plus Barkley Rosser is neither qualified as economist nor as foreign policy analyst/journalist.

 

MNE MMT Progressives: The knife in the back of WeThePeople. Comment on Kaivey on ‘Warren Mosler Tweet ― Lessons for Corbyn in “Lerner’s Law”’. Plus Strictly speaking, MMTers do not qualify for a discussion of monetary theory that satisfies scientific standards. Plus The MMT scam consists of propagating deficit-spending/money-creation as a social benefit for WeThePeople. Plus From the scientific standpoint, both MMT and Austrianism is worthless garbage. Plus Austrianism is refuted, MMT is refuted, end of discussion. Plus The ultimate purpose of the MMT policy of deficit-spending/ money-creation is to keep the Oligarchy on life-support. See * below. Plus Post lost? Plus Post lost 2?

Plus De-block post. Plus  Stop corrupting. Plus

References are indispensable. Plus A testable proposition. Plus MMT is materially/formally inconsistent and MMT policy is a political fraud. Plus

If you cannot read a simple equation you are out of economics. Plus  There is no such thing as a common language of morons and scientists. Plus In science, all reasoning starts with clearly stated axioms. Plus

MMTers are failed/fake scientists and have to be expelled from the sciences. Plus Stupidity is NOT a disadvantage for political agenda pushing where only useful idiots are needed. Plus MMT is NOT science but political agenda-pushing.

ES “We have sunk very low”. Comment on Barkley Rosser on ‘Trump More Seriously Kowtows To MBS’

 

MNE Economics: A pointless left-right wrestling show. Comment on Tom Hickey on ‘Tim Worstall ― The End Game Of Modern Monetary Theory’. Plus

What the US government does in fact since many years is to artificially prolong the lifetime of an imploding economic system. Plus All the marvelous things of a civilization come from scientists/ engineers. Plus To argue against MMT amounts to the self-exclusion from the worldwide community of good people. Plus Adam Smith's final resting place in the history of scientific thought is a hole in the darkest corner of the Flat-Earth-Cemetery. Plus The lethal consequence of MMT policy is NOT on inflation but on distribution. Plus Keynes and Friedman are scientifically dead and only ignoramuses still quote them. Plus The identity proof of a scientist is that he has something to say that helps to understand how the universe or a subdomain of it works. Plus

Anything is superior to mainstream economics because, in scientific terms, mainstream economics is the absolute zero. You just cannot go deeper. Plus

The first thing to do for the salvation of humanity is to flush failed economics and blathering economists down the scientific toilet. Plus The axiomatically correct macrofoundations approach is NOT for low life political economists. They are beyond hope. Plus

Prove that you are not one of this sorry bunch of useful political idiots. Plus Try to refute the macroeconomic Profit Law and if you cannot you are out of economics. Plus Time for MMTer to say goodbye. Plus Neither Walrasians, nor Keynesians, nor Marxians, nor Austrians, nor MMTers have the true theory. Plus The REAL criticism of MMT. Plus In the political sphere, the Legitimate Sovereign makes the ultimate decision. Plus The task of economists as scientists is to figure out how the actual economy works. Plus Right policy depends on true theory. Plus

We should be talking about that MMTers are stupid and corrupt agenda pushers who sell a free-lunch policy for the Oligarchy in the bluff package of social policy. Plus Fact is that Cambridge UK’s distribution theory has already been thoroughly disproved. Plus

Pasinetti’s idiocy consists of not having realized Keynes’ foundational blunder. Plus The point at issue is MMT and the unassailable proof of the stupidity/ corruption of MMTers. Plus The Cambridge School of Loose Verbal Reasoning has NOT produced one piece of sound science. Plus MMT is provably false and that is the end of MMT. Plus  Supply-demand-equilibrium, what an idiocy for 200+ years! Plus Photographic evidence of MMT's self-debunking. Plus MMT’s fight for the cause of WeThePeople was never meant to be taken literally.
