MMT challenging the economic establishment

BDO is proud to present the
Considering Modern Monetary Theory (MMT)’ eBook, designed to challenge any preconceived ideas readers may have on the MMT topic.


MMT is a widely debated economic theory that has been increasing in popularity with the potential to fundamentally change the way our governments manage economic policy.

Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) challenges many of the traditional principles of economics on which current government policy is based.

In 2021, we hosted a three-part MMT webinar series exploring all sides of the MMT debate. In this series we asked a host of guest presenters to challenge current views whatever side of the debate they may be on.

Our presenters included Professor Bill Mitchell, Chair of Economics at Newcastle University and Director of the Centre of Full Employment and Equity (CofFEE), Dr. Lacy Hunt, an internationally renowned economist and Executive Vice President of Hoisington Investment Management Company, and Matthew Peter, Chief Economist at QIC.



Exploring the basic principles and myths surrounding MMT

In part-one, join Professor Bill Mitchell, leading advocate for MMT, as he explores the basics of MMT and the myths surrounding it.


Why MMT would lead to hyperinflation

In part-two, join Dr. Lacy Hunt, Executive Vice President of Hoisington Investment Management Company, as he explores the short-term risks to the standard of living and the dispersion of wealth and income between the upper and lower income households. He will also look at the longer-term risks that MMT could lead to, including hyperinflation and the triggering of Gresham’s Law.


Weighing up the pro's and con's - a balanced view on MMT

In our last webinar, QIC Chief Economist, Matthew Peter, will weigh up both sides of the MMT debate and provide a balanced view on the theory.
