Steven Hail @ NIBS on Modern Money and the Job Guarantee
A recording by the AUWU of Steven Hail talk on 7th February 2019.
Steven explains why unemployment and inequality are political choices and not economic necessities. The Australia's government, he argues, could deliver equitable and inclusive full employment this year if it chose to do so. That no major political party has so far made this promise is largely a consequence of a widely held misunderstanding of the functions of government spending and taxation.
