YouTube has the video THE ECONOMICS OF THE UKRAINE PROXY WAR w/ MICHAEL HUDSON AND RADHIKA DESAI!
Economists Michael Hudson and Radhika Desai join to break down the economics of the Ukraine proxy war between NATO and Russia as the one-year anniversary of the military operation approaches.
So far I have listened to the first 90 minutes which takes one to the end of the interviews with Radhika Desai and Michael Hudson. It certainly helps to have a background in the Geopolitics that Hudson, Desai, and Haiphong espouse. Of course you can develop that background by watching discussions like this. What I have come to realize is the weakness of MMT (Modern Money Theory) as practiced by almost all the rest of the MMT community (but Hudson and Desai) is the focus on sovereign currency issues. This focus tends to make MMT theorists downplay the importance of the international aspects of geopolitics. That makes MMT good as far as it goes, but it just does not go far enough.
