Hey John, I heard that there are some new bank policies in 2021. I can no longer make international purchases online without calling my bank. I can’t get them to let me buy from Russia AT ALL. I wonder if you know why this is? Are they really afraid of fraud or is it racism? Or are they trying to keep all our stimulus money in America? 🤔

Not to take the conversations away from these subjects, just we're dealing with a SA crisis right now. I want to help, I think this is helping.. I can't believe I haven't seen anyone else speak on the Dobrik cases like this. They watched it happened. joked about it. Made money off of it, and had over 5 million people a wall- or a door crack away from watching it too... I feel weak, sick to my stomache....

Usually their research is spot on but they missed a big one this time: interest rates have been going down because the central banks of the world have been purposely buying their own bonds and articially deflating rates. When Europe and the ECB said they were going to implement negative interest rates,, that is exactly what they did No mystery about it There is a lot of data on this you can look up...

Neoclassical (so called mainstream) economists don't understand money and don't understand the finance sector and definately don't understand the deflationary pressures of PRIVATE debt. Stephanie Kelton and Steve Keen (and really all of the MMT/Post-Keynsian economists) actually understand wtf is going on in the economy. I suggest reading The Deficit Myth by Kelton and Debunking Economics by Keen among other great insights. Yes, even more than nobel prize winning toolbuckets that think 6 degree celsius global warming will result in a trivial drop in global GDP...apparently cockroaches will begin bartering when the Homo Sapiens die out!

What I understand as the basic reason why US didn't become Greece is because your economy fell at a time when so did everybody's, so basically the net effect was zero. However, if it had fell when rest of the countries were booming, well then you'd have been pretty much fucked. So this pandemic was actually a blessing in disguise for you.

In Sep 2012 Romney said he'd cut spending that isn't worth China paying for it. Of course as a Republican he was NEVER allowed to ask what spending is worth raising taxes on the most wealthy. That's off limits. foreignpolicy.com/2012/09/24/romneys-litmus-test-for-federal-programs-is-it-worth-a-chinese-loan/ [I’m going to look at every federal program and I’ll ask this question, "Is this so - program so critical it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?" And if it doesn’t pass that test, I’m going to eliminate the program because we just can’t afford to keep spending more money than we take in. This is, this is something which is not just bad economics. I think it’s immoral. ]

So the moral of the story is, "Democrats suck at deficit spending, but so do Republicans". I could not agree more. It's why I left both parties and became a Libertarian. We need sanity on spending and we're not getting it from either of the two big parties. And I agree that up to a certain point, debt and deficits don't matter. But surely we can all agree that after a certain point, debt is ALL that matters. All you need is a calculator and just a basic understanding of interest rates. History is not on our side on this, and this segment does not help. Sorry John.

SOVEREIGN DEBT is king! Greece did NOT have Sovereign debt. They are more like a US STATE which can overborrow and be unable to make payments. But the US can PRINT money to make interest payments, primarily leading to inflation, which takes spending value away from people who have it (including Boomers in their 70s getting 1% returns on their savings to live without working for the next 25 years until they die.)

LOL when you say nobody fucking really knows why USA didn’t turn into Greece is simple: Cause Greece doesn’t have a fucking money printing machine! If USA wants they can print dollars (yes they generate inflation) but but you have less than 3% inflation every year, if you increase it to 6-8% is not the end of the world. That’s why you get more credits from all over the world, besides USA is one of the world’s biggest customers so why on earth the world wants to see USA in Crisis?.

Except John, interest rates will raise and servicing that debt will cut into other programs you otherwise support regardless of how many new taxes are put in. Is Covid-19 a serious problem, yes, so was WW2, of which the US spent just as much money to fight (as percentage of GDP). Now when this Covid-19 is over, will the US dramatically cut that spending too...I doubt it and that will be the looming issue.

While it's true that borrowing money (especially in a crisis) might sometimes be a good idea, the fact alone that no major economies have collapsed so far doesn't console me enough not to try to be as fiscally resonsible as possible. In other words, I would continue using kids to dissuade people from spening too much, at least in the fat years.

Considering that money is back up by literally nothing. And that the debt owed is owed to a fuzzy enity that no one can identify. Without the working class nothing is of any value. Real goods made by real people and real property are the only tangable things of value. Without people there is no value in our banking system. Its fake money and thus fake debt run by a shady system of banks.

Business-y types love to say stuff like 'You have to spend money to make money', and that's one of the few instances where business finances are somewhat comparable to a national economy. Right now, America is spending most of our investors' (ie the taxpayers) money on the equivalent of bonuses for the executives, while letting the actual business (ie infrastructure and social programs) fall apart. We need to spend that money on the actual "business" before we can start making enough to really start paying it back.

God this program has become too overly politicized. Even topics that have very little to do with political affiliations are political now. As a non-American i could not care less about republicans and democrats. But everything is left vs right with a clear bias to left these days Republicans increasing debt = bad Biden increasing debt to a record high as shown @15:55 = irrelevant Can i also point out that that very same graph shows a big increase during Obama and almost none during bush/trump, which is ignored. All that indicates is that there was enough growth in the country to warrant an increase of debt (kinda like the conclusion of the video). Also the spikes in debt very much align with spikes of other western countries of which most had a left leaning government. Almost as if the economy allows it, governments spend the money they can to further their current political agenda ...shocker... But we need another reason to say Trump bad, right bad, republican bad, Cruz bad, musk bad and trump bad again whenever we talk about something reasonably apolitical.

Didn't he rail against Trump for everything he and his hack team could think of?

If this guy was posing this argument as a "connect the dots" proposal it would come out looking like a pack of hyenas fucking a camel whilst simultaneously building a rocket ship with tits headed for Uranus.

This show used to be funny. What is this government propaganda BS.... just because private business uses debt for growth doesn't make all government borrowing good. Tons of businesses fail as a result of taking on too much debt... It has to be paid back even if you use it for stuff you a prove of....

Dude, love your facts, but please reduce the number of jokes per episode man, many of these jokes aren’t even related to the topics at hand, and many of the jokes are just weird.
