In scientific publications on the problems of monetary relations, modern monetary theory is defined as a system of views that have been formed over the past twenty years by a group of American and Australian economists, mostly university professors. The main impetus for the development and popularization of modern monetary theory was the need to create a scientific concept for overcoming such problems of the American economy as the accumulation of huge public debt, chronic budget deficits and high unemployment. This theory offers a universal solution to these problems. This article shows how this theory is able to cope with the current global financial and economic crisis; The article also analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of modern monetary theory.
