The MMT Framework For Thinking About Unemployment

Real VisionJune 22, 2021
Real Vision managing editor Ed Harrison welcomes Pavlina Tcherneva, associate professor of economics at Bard College, to discuss her views on Modern Monetary Theory, the role of the public sector, and thoughts on the FED's approach to rising inflation. Modern Monetary Theorists believe that creating unemployment is not an efficient solution to prevent rising inflation. Tcherneva argues that there is nothing natural about unemployment in a stable economy, but states that there is a high social cost to unemployment in addition to the absence of income. The pair goes into the merits of unemployment and taxation as FED tools to stabilize the economy. Although the private sector is responsible for the majority of job creation, it is the responsibility of the public sector to ensure that the population is employed. Filmed on June 14, 2021.

How a Molecular Biologist Reengineered the Blockchain
From pursuing a PhD in molecular biology to creating a DeFi token before "DeFi" was a term and founding Vesper, Jordan Kruger, CEO and co-founder of Vesper, shares her exciting career. Similar to how the human genome is mapped in a searchable directory, Kruger’s initial reaction to the Satoshi papers was to design a similar system for searchability through the blockchain. Applying her expertise, Kruger analyzed the blockchain from a unique perspective and was able to recognize and utilize patterns. In 2018, she helped create one of the earlier, truly autonomous cryptocurrencies, which pioneered many of the foundations we see within DeFi today. Her experiences culminated into Vesper, a DeFi growth engine in which participants can earn yield in various customizable avenues.
