Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has ignited the Right and many in the Establishment Democratic Party with her support for Modern Monetary Theory to support a grand Progressive agenda. In short, we can afford it if we adjust our economic model for humanity instead of one for the support of a Plutocracy, an Oligarchy, and to some extent Fascists. This interview with Arliss Bunny that I conducted in St. Louis at the Netroots Nation conference is extremely informative. Make sure it is shared widely. Arliss Bunny is a progressive rabbit American and economics wonk. She is the author of the well-reviewed e-book, The Smart Bunny’s Guide to Debt, Deficit and Austerity, which is being used as a textbook at the university level as an introduction to Modern Monetary Theory. Arliss has two more Smart Bunny books due out this Fall, The Smart Bunny’s Guide to the Federal Reserve and The Smart Bunny’s Guide to Social Security. Arliss also has her own weekly radio program and podcast, Hopping Mad with Will McLeod and Arliss Bunny, airing on Netroots Radio at 8AM on Mondays or via podcast on Stitcher, iTunes and GooglePlay. You can reach Arliss on Twitter as @ArlissBunny or @ImHoppingMad. Her personal motto is, “Politics. Economics. Carrots!”
