I recently posted about the theory that the money supply is endogenous and under the control of a country's central bank, such as the Federal Reserve. Paul Krugman dismisses the theory.
Proponents of Modern Monetary Theory, in the comments and elsewhere, have taken issue with Krugman. I have in mind, for example, Dean Baker, Peter Cooper, Scott Fullwiler, Greg Hannsgen (of the Levy Institute), Bill Mitchell, Warren Mosler, Cullen Roche, and Pavlina Tcherneva (cross-posted). James Galbraith appears in various comments, for example, in this one, in which he says, "I was a student of Godley (and even more so, of Kaldor) many years ago and a close observer of monetary policy during my years on Capitol Hill, so this material came easily to me."
