Do you understand the monetary system? Want a deeper understanding of unemployment, inflation, fiscal policy and the banking system?

Jesse Hermans will present an introductory course in Modern Monetary Theory at Prosper Australia, January 16 & 23, 2017. This workshop delves into the nature of money in the modern economy. Jesse will provide insight into the real issues facing our economy, focussing on real resources rather than notions of financial affordability. If we understand the currency monopoly, we can ensure this monopoly is used the public interest.

Jesse is a passionate advocate for Georgist economics in a Modern Monetary Theory framework. At the age of 18 he began serving on the board of Fair Money Australia. He is one of the youngest Australian economists interviewed by 3CR Renegade Economists. Jesse contributed Prosper’s Speculative Vacancies Report and has written numerous articles for Prosper Australia and Fair Money Australia, some of which have been published in the Australian Journal of Economic Reform.

He wants greater equity and efficiency in our economic system to advance the development and prosperity of all.
