While attending the 2014 Netroots Nation conference, Gaius Publius — contributing writer at AmericaBlog and member of the Virtually Speaking Sunday media panel — conducted three interviews under the heading "Five Questions."

This year he spoke with House Democrat Keith Ellison; economist Dr. Stephanie Kelton of the MMT school of economics; and Democratic strategist Robert Cruickshank.

In this podcast, Gaius talks with Dr. Kelton about:

· Her view of the so-called "budget for burnable carbon" and the looming climate crisis.
· How to guarantee a minimum wage without a passing minimum-wage law (this answer is striking).
· How seeing the film "Roger and Me" changed Kelton's approach to economics.

Gauis first published this series of conversations at AmericaBlog.  He provides a
fast look at how MMT views money, and what that means for progressive politics.Ste
