Jason Hartman and Investment Counselor Adam take a moment today to discuss the hot topic of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). Adam, being a big proponent of MMT, plays a clip from a recent episode of The MMT Podcast and discusses what MMT is, how we can use it in our observation of the economy, and what it can mean for our investing.
