This copy is for your personal, non-commercial use only. Read the following edited excerpts for more. Montier: MMT can be decomposed into a few simple statements. The U. Three, MMT has a [different] operational description of the monetary system. But the way the world works is: Bankers make a loan, then gather the deposits to offset it, or go collect reserves.

That has real implications for neoclassical economics. Four, MMT is aligned with functional finance, which simply says fiscal policy should aim to generate full employment rather than a balanced budget. So you hear from all sorts of policy wonks that the U. That creates inflation. Yet MMT is often accused of ignoring inflation. Six: Private debt matters. Therefore, it needs to be able to repay debts. So we should worry about the level of debt that corporations and households have. You can reframe national debt as national savings.

Those are the core points of MMT. At university, I was fortunate to encounter a pluralist approach to economics. Most universities today teach a very strict neoclassical framework.

I watched them halve, halve, and halve again. Suddenly, they were at 50 basis points [0. It was incredibly humbling. I began to think about alternative frameworks.

What offers more insight into understanding the world? MMT won hands down. Larry Summers. Past a certain point, this approach leads to hyperinflation. He was the most intellectually dishonest of the various critics that I saw. That kind of hypocrisy really sticks in my throat. We need to understand that cash and bonds are not vastly different instruments, right? Bonds are really just deferred cash. You are paid a return for your willingness to hold them.

That creates reserves at the bank of the person who is providing the service. Ultimately, that government deficit puts downward pressure on interest rates. Classical economics says the reverse. Look at Japan, which has had huge deficits, and where have interest rates gone?

To zero. Oddly, fiscal deficits are actually good news from an equity point of view. This is interesting and not widely understood. Even with such an outcome, the pricing of the U. Calling it innovation is shying away from the important question, which is, Why the hell have wages been so damned slow and low for so long? It has a lot to do with what one would call monopsony, or the power of a single buyer, rather than monopoly, the power of a single seller.

There are fewer new firms being created. It has translated into corporate power against labor, rather than corporate power against the consumer. That helps explain very low wage growth over time, despite a very long expansion. It breeds resentment, polarization of political opinion, extremist stances.

What about the things the market professes to care about—financial metrics like earnings? One of the common beliefs is that during this long, slow recovery, earnings per share have been just fine. But the data show that earnings have just about kept up with gross domestic product because of massive buybacks. I go to a lot of rock concerts with other reasonably old people.

We tend to sit down. Then everybody has to stand up. Half of the outstanding corporate debt is now rated the lowest investment grade, which really is quite worrying. The Federal Reserve has reversed its rate regime. What happens next? The most likely reason for rates coming down is a recession. But you are even more bearish than him. This is almost always what investors do during bull markets. I studied the visionary poems of Samuel Coleridge when I was a whippersnapper.

He was high on opium, which pretty much accounts for what he wrote. There were lots of straws in the wind. It was ludicrously expensive. The Fed had been raising rates.

All I know is that when things are priced to perfection, any shortfall leads to rapid repricing. Some assets can give you really quite attractive rates of return, at least in expectation.

And you should own them. These would be emerging market value stocks. I have no idea. Will they do it over the next decade? Absolutely, because the pricing differential is huge. You have to look at alternatives, although most expose you to other deep risks. Merger arbitrage has equity-like risk, but a much shorter duration.

Selling puts is another example. And with the world so damned expensive today, you have to own quite a lot of dry powder. Write to Leslie P. Norton at leslie.
