New Economics Blog

Economic Perspectives from Kansas City is a new economics blog featuring professors from the University of Missouri at Kansas City.

This is how they describe the blog

This website offers policy advice and economic analysis from a group of professional economists at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. We created this site in order to weigh in on the serious challenges facing the global economy today. We aim to provide an accurate description of the cause(s) of the current meltdown as well as some fresh ideas about how Congress, the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve should respond. Our approach, which has been dubbed “The Kansas City School,” builds on the work of Abba P. Lerner, John Maynard Keynes and Hyman P. Minsky. Above all, we are careful to provide analyses and policy recommendations that are applicable under a modern, fiat money system.
Here are a couple of blog posts that caught my attention

Stephanie Kelton "The Failure of the Mainstream Model"
Randall Wray, "The Fiscal Storm"
James Galbraith, "Fiscal Sustainability"
