Again MMT it's not trying to solve a problem, it's just telling you how the system "functions". So you can either understand the rules like Japan and run a deficit to build good infrastructure or be like Australia where we still use old diesel trains that cause you to pass out due to fumes entering the cabin, just so ScoMo can have a meaningless surplus. Remember most people are happy with how the system is, so it will never change. Best you can do is understand the allowed rules and get the most out of it. It's like an old lady at Coles getting upset with the checkout girl that the prices are too high, the checkout girl then tells the old lady that if she buys on a specific day she can get it half price. To which the old lady just gets angry saying how it's all rubbish. What more do you want from the checkout girl, she doesn't create the rules and at best can just tell you how to gain the most out of it.
