CALL FOR PAPERS
Modern Monetary Theory has transformed the economics discipline. Its influence extends beyond economics, reaching deep into the fields of law, history, finance, banking, public policy, and philosophy. Join the world’s leading MMT practitioners—including featured speakers Warren Mosler, Robert Skidelsky, James K. Galbraith, Jan Kregel, and L. Randall Wray—and explore the cutting edge of modern economic thinking.

Submissions are welcome on any aspect of Modern Monetary Theory, such as fiscal policy, economic development, employment policy, the framing and marketing of MMT, taxation, inflation, and reforming the financial system. Please send your individual abstract (200 words maximum) or panel submission with a short description before June 15 to mmtconference@umkc.edu.
