ZOOM--HETERODOX ECONOMICS: MODERN MONEY THEORY
The Zoom course is part lecture part student questions and discussion.
Modern Money Theory (MMT) predicted the Great Recession. Orthodox, economists from right (Mankiw) to left (Krugman) did not. MMT offers some surprising remedies to current social problems, providing seldom-heard solutions for National "Debt."
So...it's not about business as usual, and the class takes only six sessions. Participants get about 60 pages of material (maximum 20 pages of reading per class, typically less), for class discussion background. People who have taken the seminar and/or read the material have said “I’ll never look at the economy the same way again.”

Instructor: MARK DEMPSEY
Mark Dempsey is a former (award-winning) technical writer who enjoyed figuring out complex systems, then explaining them to users. He also worked as a loan officer, so economics was part of his pre-retirement life, too. Mark has presented this class at Cal State Sacramento previously, and one of his students liked it enough to recommend it to PVSC in Maine (by Zoom) when he moved there.
