+djmars1983 the whole so called recovery was completely artificial and due to central banks creating money. If it was healthy interest rates would have been at normal rates years ago. Worse new problems like too many companies buying back stock will be compounded as they borrowed money to buyback stock.

It shouldn't be required for anyone. It's humorous, but that's it. I'm guessing not one person involved with the video has even heard of Triffin, much less understands how the Triffin Paradox and the US drastically cutting the deficit under Clinton played a major role in the trade of derivatives. This simplistic horse crap appeals to the uneducated and should not be put in schools as "education"...

Deflation is bad for someone in debt because their debt increases. Guess whether people were more or less in debt during the Recession than otherwise! Also deflation means the amount of money going around decreased. During the Great Depression the amount of money available decreased by 35%. It doesn't matter how low prices are if there is no money coming your way because it's been destroyed.
OolTube02 (4 months ago)
Actually by buying treasuries they're destroying money at the same time as they're creating money on the reserves side, so in the end there isn't any increase in the amount of money in circulation. Which is why quantitative easing has done nothing to create inflation. Ultimately it's an accounting nothingburger.

The reason the Fed doesn't buy Treasury Bonds from the Treasury is because it would be illegal(the video is a tad misleading). The central bank is independent of the Treasury(wink*) and must conduct all asset purchases in the open market. This is how the taxpayers get screwed by the major banks. Keep in mind, it can not purchase/sell securities, only Foreign Exchange, Treasury Notes and other agency debt holdings. Also, keep in mind there is little to no knowing of the reserves of the fed because Congress refuses to conduct any real audit.

The big issue I see with QE as Richard Koo (Economist) correctly points out that whilst QE is trying to encourage banks to loan... The everyday businesses and households stop borrowing money in order to pay off their debt. It happened in Japan whereby there was money to be borrowed but they just wanted to pay off their debts even at 0% interest rate. In that case the government needs to borrow money to keep the economy stable until such time businesses and households start borrowing again which is when the government can start paying off their debt. Basically QE doesn't work but yet they keep doing more and more of it causing a huge problem in the long term and now it's doing nothing in the short term. They have so much money in reserves that when they start borrowing again, interest rates will sky rocket.

heydudedolfan13 (6 months ago)
Jay Rocket they should. I have no reason to not pay for it. I'm a teacher. I have an arts degree. I came from an upper middle class home but it was my aunt and uncle because my mom died when I was almost 10. I qualified for grants because I was 18 and considered on my own according to the state and was given 5k per spring and fall semesters. Covered classes and books and even had money left over for a summer class or two. Where do you think that money came from? You're uneducated. You're a working stiff who works a shitty job and don't want your money going to pay for anything that would allow someone to be better than you. I don't care if your shitty blue collar job pays you more than my teachers salary does. I work 8 months a year and I'm happy. You work a dangerous job and don't have hardly any money because of the amount of kids you have. You live in a state that's subsidized by California and other liberal states.
Georgey K (2 years ago)
Ryan and Dan should not be qualified to comment. Do you really not see any problem in printing money to pay off debt? The purchasing power of the dollar would tank. And do you want to fix the problem of high tuition? The solution is to get the government out of the business of guaranteeing loans to every student, especially since most can not afford it. What happens when the government guarantees loans to every student? It creates an artificial demand for college and schools will jack up the price knowing the loans taking out by the student are backed by the government. The kids who can afford to pay higher price of tuition will continue to do so. Take the government guaranteeing loans out of the picture and the demand will fall and schools will have no choice but to lower tuition.

"inflation driven by excessive money creation is the result of demand exceeding supply" wrong. Excessive money creation creates a demand that exceeds supply which raises prices aka inflation, it is not the result.

Econ4 Every1 (2 years ago)
You are completely correct, but there is something you may not realize that I hope you don't mind me sharing with you. The debt _is_ the money in the economy. Think about it like this. Imagine a subway/ Rail system in a major metropolitan city. Now imagine that it used tokens to pay for rides. What is a token? It is a debt, right? A debt paid for with a ride on a subway. A Walmart gift card is a debt redeemable in goods and services from Walmart. Movie theater tickets are a debt payable in the move stamped on them. So what is a dollar? Fundamentally a dollar is a debt payable in the restitution of your taxes. that is, as long as the government remains in power, it can impose a tax burden upon you of which only payment in the dollars it creates can satisfy. Now, the government has also created legal tender laws, so now you're dollars are debts payable in the goods and services that can be bought with them. Now back to the subway for a sec. A subway is a business, so the more tokens created means there are more little debts, little IOU's floating around out in the world. But if a token is a debt, why would it be that the more tokens there are, the better business the subway is doing? Can you imagine the owners of any business that creates debts like tokens or gift cards or tickets saying to himself..."Gee, I have too much debt out in the world, I better get it back!" Dollars are debts, they are IOU's and the more of them in the world (as long as inflation is low), the better off the economy is. So the debt can't crash the system, only lack of it. Now to offer a little evidence to this claim, think about what a government surplus is. Again, let's go back to the subway. Imagine there are 10,000 subway tokens in circulation all which were created by the owner of the subway. Last week, 9,000 were sold, the next week 9,500. That would create a deficit of tokens from the owner's point of view as there are 500 fewer tokens in the machines to sell than last week. Is that bad? No, it means he sold more rides. As long as there were trains that people could ride and they were on time, no problem! But let's say the subway had a surplus of tokens, the next week. Sales of tokens had fallen to 7000. So now the owners of the subway had 2500 _more_ tokens in the machines to sell. Is that good? No of course not. The tokens are an IOU, If people purchase less and there are more tokens in the machines for people to buy can the subway owner do anything with that surplus of tokens? No, he created the tokens, having more doesn't help him because to him the tokens are IOU's that he can create at any time. He could take 3000 of the tokens and pour them in the ocean, has the subway owner lost anything? No, he can just create more. Same goes for government. The government creates the IOU's, collecting its own IOU doesn't increase its capacity to create IOU's any more than having more subway tokens means the subway owner can create more tokens. Look at the 7 periods in history when the government has run a budget surplus (more tokens). Every single period of sustained surplus was followed by an economic depression, all except the last period of surplus 1998-2001 which within 6 years was followed by two recessions, of which one was the greatest recession in history. Public debt (as distinct from the real problem, private debt) can't crash the economy, public debt makes it possible. It is the _lack of_ public debt that threatens the economy.
Econ4 Every1 (2 years ago)
_"The actual practice of QE is when the federal reserve buys a bunch government bonds from large banks and simultaneously lowers interest rates to EXTREMELY STRONGLY encourage borrowing ."_ Actually,  before 2008 the Fed didn't _set_ interest rates, it set what's called a "target rate", which was little more than "telegraphing" to the banks the kinds of policies the Fed will pursue in the coming months. When the Fed makes bond purchases, it increases the amount number of available reserves banks have to secure loans. The greater the available reserves the fewer banks have to borrow from each other (because bond purchases create more deposits), the lower the interest rate between banks (called the Federal Funds Rate or the inter-bank rate). So you see, it's not purchasing bonds *AND taking some action* to lower rates as you say, but it's the fact that *purchasing bonds **_CAUSES_* interest rates to fall. Can you see the distinction? Again, this description is the way things were done between 1971-2008, that is, the fed used bond purchases and sales as a way to _manipulate_ rates not _set_ them. Today there is about 10 times the amount of available reserves there were before 2008 because of QE, but that's another story. For the time being, all you need to know is that because QE created more reserves than the banks could use, the Fed could no longer manipulate rates as a way to set rates. You know now, that the Fed now dimply pays interest on reserves as a way to push the rate banks to pay above zero. _"They don't just "print more money" to do it (I mean, they do, the US Mint is always running"_ I just want to clarify this point. Very little money is created via printing. Most of it is electronic (and perhaps that's what you mean, more metaphorically, but for others that read this I want to clarify). Money printed is printed only to meet the public's desire to hold physical cash which waxes and wanes with the season. The money that's printed is sold to banks and does not add to the money supply because banks must trade an asset (reserves) for the physcial dollars they acquire. Think of reserves as 2 forms of the exact same thing. Dollars are the physical representation of reserves and then there are electronic reserves. When people hold dollars physically, the amount of reserves in the system declines, but at the same time, dollars are acquired through borrowing, so a bank somewhere holds an asset equal to the physical dollars that exist. The one exception being that the dollars were created via government deficit spending, but that's a whole other can of worms..... _"The reason this whole process exists is because the foundation of a strong economy is the motion of money. Money has to move around, transactions are made, things need to be bought, sold, leased, and rented for the economy to be strong. If people stop buying, money stops moving around. If banks stop lending, money stops moving around. So QE is just an extreme strategy to get a ton of money moving around again so the economy can get back on its feet."_ The first part of that is absolutely correct, but the last part about QE I'm going to disagree with. It was believed that if the banks had greater reserves that they would lend them, but as it turned out, the academics and even members of the Fed still don't understand that banks don't lend reserves. Thanks to the failed experiments called QE, we've proven that. The other thing QE did was allowed the Fed to remove billions, perhaps trillions of dollars of losses from the public sector and transfer them to the private sector. The Fed held those negative assets until they went positive and are now selling them back to the private sector and giving the profits to the Treasury.

Mama MIA! That's a spicy meatball of a video!

So let me get this straight. The fed, which is privately owned, prints digital currency to buy assets that are later going to reward them with actual money FROM banks that are able to ask for any price of "digital currency" they like? Sounds like fair trade to me.
andrew thompson (2 years ago)
the whole point of printing money and lowering interest rates is to keep a slow rate of inflation BEFORE there is deflation. Thats why we don't see prices falling around us. if we start seeing economic deflation, thats when the FED has completely failed. they already have failed in many ways but our economy atleast survived 2008. even though they helped cause the problem, our economy didn't go off the edge.

+heydudedolfan13 your absolutely right. but you have understand free marketers don't necessarily believe in no government period. just no government restrictions on the "freedom" of the markets. This is exactly whats so dangerous. but that is neither here nor there. sounds like we both understand basic economics. my message is simply the Fed is necessary for the socialization of currency. its only when we have poor representation in the Fed that it becomes dangerous.
andrew thompson (2 years ago)
+heydudedolfan13 Reagan also said "Government is not the solution to our problem government IS the problem" this is key in the ideology of free marketers. your right about the fed screwing up causing the depression. the fed had only been around for a decade. the fed is necessary but its a danger when the wrong people are in charge. same thing with any situation.
andrew thompson (2 years ago)
+heydudedolfan13 also thats incorrect. if you do your research, Greenspan and bernanke were definitely supporters of ayn rand. Both Alan and Ben believed that the markets were capable of regulating themselves. they believed in as little government regulation as possible.
GizmoMaltese (2 years ago)
This video is idiotic. Deflation is bad, very bad. Prices dropping sound good to you, the customer but imagine if you're a store and you bought inventory worth $100k but now it's worth $80k because of deflation. Is that good for the store owner? NO! Will the store owner stay in business? NO! That's why it's very very bad. Slow gradual inflation is fine. Think about what things used to cost when you were a kid. When I was a kid I could ride the bus for 25 cents. Now a bus ride is $2.25. Yet the world still works just fine. Please stop the promoting of ignorance!
Econ 101 (2 years ago)
+GizmoMaltese deflation is NOT bad, a credit crunch is bad, something completely different. Prices going down means that productivity and technology make our products and services more competitive, effective, and plentyful. The idea that deflation is bad comes from the liars who WANT inflation so their debt becomes smaller (like governments). If there were no inflation, everyone would become richer and there would be LESS poverty.

TheRealNoodles (1 year ago)
reserves are not cash you idiot. Nothing new is added when QE started, the central banks removes the securities from the bank in exchange for more reserves. It's just changing to composition of the asset. But the thing is, reserves don't increase the purchasing power of banks. It doesn't give them more ability to grant credit so it didn't work.
John Cutts (1 year ago)
Understood. But why not cut out the middleman and buy the securities off yourself? Cut out The Goldman Sachs.
Lions And Truth (2 years ago)
To carry out QE central banks create money by buying securities, such as government bonds, from banks, with electronic cash that did not exist before. The new money swells the size of bank reserves in the economy by the quantity of assets purchased—hence "quantitative" easing.
Field -Ye Tian (2 years ago)
Don't apologize. I enjoyed reading your essay. I guess one's judgement to banks or anything can definitely be relative rather than absolute. If I experienced the time when deposit a check cost 10% face value, I may think the banks nowadays are charities. And yes you are right, I came to U.S. 8 years ago. I wasn't aware that you can deposit interbank checks free or charge.
