His book basically declares war on most other economists too: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Debunking-Economics-Revised-Expanded...
I'm very impressed but I'm always looking for counter arguments to my current understanding so if you know of any good critiques of his stuff I would be very interested.
Its pretty fascination stuff b/c MMT says that the mainstream has everything backwards.
I don't recognise items (1), (2) or (3) or even (4) as such in his writing although I'm not sure they contradict it. (5) is very important and I think that he might say that (6) is the wrong way round and that the government is the agent of the banks at the moment!
His key issue is that debt (public and private) matters and that the rate of change in total debt is the main source of the booms and busts that we see.
His prescription for the current crisis is printing money but then to give it to the people not the banks or government (both of which we are doing now). People with debts would then be required to pay down the debts with the printed money and people without debts could keep and spend the printed money.
He also has some proposals for limitations on limitations on borrowing for property purchases (PILL) and one intended in preventing share speculation getting out of control too although I have my doubts about that one really as it seems impractical, abusable and has some potential negative effects too (Jubilee Shares).
On point 6) the government has statutory control of the banks. Its just that the banks have captured the government.
War-hawk generals getting control of our foreign policy would be the analog.
