Event Details:
Terms like Deficits, the U.S. Debt, Government Borrowing and Spending have each had embedded a certain meaning in the American economic psyche and vernacular. The connotation that each term evokes creates heated conversations around what approaches or actions should be taken to address our problems effectively, and these conversations are simply not constructive. They simply arise from incorrect premises.
According to Modern Money Theory (MMT), a correct understanding of what money is, where it comes from and who controls it sheds a whole new approach to addressing issues facing this country and the global economy as a whole.

With this somewhat cryptic introduction, come to our FPALA Holiday Luncheon and Silent Auction event in December and prepare for a paradigm shift on how you currently understand our economy and our monetary system!


We would like to give a special thank you to the contributors to our annual Holiday Party.
