Modern Money and a Job Guarantee

Dr Steven Hail, will give a talk explaining 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.

Steven Hail is a Research Scholar at the Global Institute for Sustainable Prosperity and a Lecturer in the School of Economics at the University of Adelaide. He has recently been a spokesperson for GetUp Australia and a consultant for the US campaign group, Real Progressives.
