    Besides the interesting recipes, that site is where Kossack Letsgetitdone writes frequently about Modern Money Theory (MMT)  and usually re-posts his writings to DKos.

    Money, of course, is at the base of all hunger in America. Here is one of his diaries:

    That one is actually a re-post from Huff Post by MMT expert Warren Mosler. In it he discusses things the government should be funding, since it is the creator of fiat money, which it can't "run out of." He doesn't specifically mention "revenue sharing" with the states to fund help for low-income citizens, but he and other MMT writers recommend it elsewhere.

    In one of my earlier diaries ( http://www.dailykos.com/... ) I said of Mosler:

    Mosler, aware of the threat of further layoffs at the state level, also proposes that the federal government grant state governments revenue at the rate of $500 per capita.
    The more people who are aware of MMT the better, and the more likely its truths and proposals will be actualized.
