An Appeal to the Green Party about MMT

The Green Party want to extricate our society from the clutches of neoliberalism, yet their economic platform is riddled with infectious neoliberal catchphrases that tighten our chains.

A Message to the Green Party National Committee and Howard Switzer Regarding Monetary Reality

Recently, the Green Party of Tennessee posted this and also the first reply (timestamped 12:38 PM) to a comment by Sylvia Saadati on that post. My message below is a critical reply to the main text of this comment, excluding the final portion about AMI. It breaks that paragraph up into its component statements for purposes of a more systematic critique. My conclusion is: whether private or public, neither a Fed bank, nor the Fed’s Board of Governors,  can deny the sovereign will of Congress as it is being implemented by the Treasury. It must create the necessary reserves in the Treasury spending account, whenever Congress mandates spending requiring those reserves, and Treasury pushes the right buttons to force the Fed to create them in its spending account.
