Resumo

A Teoria do Dinheiro Moderno (MMT) surge para preencher a lacuna deixada por Minsky sobre como financiar um programa de garantia de empregos. O presente trabalho apresentou tal teoria a partir de seus três pilares – moeda cartal, finanças funcionais e programa de garantia de empregos – para não só trazer as críticas heterodoxas à MMT, mas também organizar as respostas apresentadas pela abordagem da MMT aos seus críticos. O objetivo deste trabalho é tanto contribuir para a organização do debate como também delinear o caminho das respostas que a abordagem da MMT ainda precisa pensar, dentre as quais destacamos: as institucionalidades jurídicas fiscalmente funcionais e o desenho de políticas econômicas que amenizem a restrição externa e compatibilizem a manutenção do pleno emprego com a estabilidade da inflação.
