Yes, the audio sucks cause it's off the camera. I had to turn my speakers up to hear Kelton, but Black talks a bit louder.
Don't know about a transcript.
Privately, Bernie understands and agrees with Kelton on MMT. She has a very close relationship with the Senator. They dined regularly to discuss the economy when she was his appointee on the Senate Budget Committee. Kelton took the picture of Sanders' impromptu meeting with Sandra Bland's mother.
Publicly, Bernie is too afraid to say those things, and not a good enough economist himself to really explain and lead a room on this discussion. So he demurs publicly and tries to avoid those questions. That's why he put an emphasis on "Other Deficits", e.g. the jobs, output, and infrastructure deficits.
At the Huffpost with Ryan Grim, on video available on Facebook, Jill Stein was asked about MMT, said she was in agreement with it, and that we need to have more public debate about the implications. Here's a link if you have an account there: facebook.com/HuffPostPolitics/videos/10...
The exchange is towards the end of the video. She kinda of muffs up some of the discussion, confusing QE with money creation, as many do, and her policy proposals haven't changed, but that's what she said.
