Stephanie Kelton is a leading American economist and a Professor of Public Policy and Economics at Stony Brook University. Kelton was Chief Economist on the U.S. Senate Budget Committee and Economic Advisor to the Bernie 2016 presidential campaign. She's most known for being a pioneer of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). 
 
In this episode, Professor Kelton debunks budget deficit and government spending myths and explains how understanding how our monetary system works is crucial to making the political and economic case for important programs like universal health care, free public higher education, infrastructure investment, and more.
 
We also explore some current economic issues, including how we might be able to cancel all public and private student debt in the U.S., and lastly the role and challenges of women in economics.
