Modern Monetary Theory


Before the next hot take on how MMT is leading to a rethinking of macroeconomics, take a look at the evidence.

The only real debate is between those who disagree with its policy prescriptions, and those who strongly disagree.— Justin Wolfers (@JustinWolfers) March 13, 2019

標準的な財産権の括りにおいて、異なる要素――所有権と譲渡権など――は都市開発などの結果にどのように違う形で影響するだろうか? 本稿は、確定していない財産権を都市の地価と密度の標準的なモデルに織り込み、土地と財産への投資、未登記の状況、および土地の利用の効率性に関して予測を行う。我々の実証分析では、190ヶ国の土地の登記と譲渡に関する制度データを、様々な都市の最終形態と結び付けた。実証結果は概ねモデルの予測と整合的であり、より大きくはデムゼッツ(1967)の財産権制度のアプローチと整合的である。実際のところ、我々は、譲渡を円滑化する制度の質が世界全体で時間と共に改善したことを立証した。

California Bill Requires Companies to Include Directors From Underrepresented Communities on their Boards

On August 30, 2020, the California State Legislature passed a new and unprecedented bill intended to promote greater diversity in corporate boardrooms. If signed into law by the governor, California’s Assembly Bill (AB) 979 would require each publicly held corporation whose principal executive offices are located in California to have a minimum number of directors from an “underrepresented community” on its board of directors.
