Econintersect: Joseph M. Firestone, whose work appears frequently at GEI, has released a new e-book, covering the conference held 30 July at the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington. The conference was organized by Sen. Bernie Sanders and had presentations by the senator, Cristos Panagopoulos, Greek Ambassador to the United States, Joseph E. Stiglitz, Jacob Funk Kirkegaard, and James K. Galbraith. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion which was moderated by Stephanie Kelton.
The book discusses some issues in detail greater than was the case at the conference. For example there is one chapter devoted to the IT (information technology) problems that would arise in a Grexit. Joe discusses options in addition to those proposed by others (such as Naked Capitalism and Bill Mitchell). Other chapters are devoted to issues discussed in detail during the panel discussion.
Joe Firestone has an GEI Opinion article with a short discussion of the book.
