Dick Eastman National Greenback Social Credit Dividend

Social credit is money that the government simply makes up and hands out to everybody in equal amounts so they don’t have to borrow from international bankers to have a supply of money to spend. You simply give money to everybody so they can buy what they want and so people who sell things will make so much money they can give everybody a nice job without having to borrow too much?” This is not the original social credit of CH Douglas, but it takes his idea of the household dividend and combines it with the national fiduciary “thin-air” money of Abraham Lincoln and the analysis of the pitfalls of debt-based money supply and private central banks as provided by Authur Kitson, Federick Soddy and others. The problem is deflation, not inflation. Interest drain is what causes deflation. Note: there are helpful diagrams at the end of this video.

Prof Steve Keen: Will there be a Double Dip in the USA? Part One

Professor Keen explains the private debt dynamics that caused both the Great Depression and the Great Recession. The Great Recession will end when private debt is much lower than it is now–even though it’s fallen by 30% of GDP since the peak, it’s still 100% higher than at the start of the Great Depression. A slowdown in the rate of decline of debt actually caused much of the recent recovery, but Professor Keen expects that this slowdown will pass and a double dip will occur. [...]

Deflation Case Study: Latvia

This case study really should have been one of the first covered because the deflation dynamics at play in Latvia have been more pronounced than just about any other country in the world. This case study will confirm many of the patterns we have seen in previous case studies. Namely a fall in the value [...]

Deflation Case Study: Spain

Things are going so bad economically in Spain that the national pastime has changed from bullfighting to bearfighting. Now that I have that terrible joke out of the way, what are the prospects for deflation in Spain? It had been characterised, like quite a few other advanced economies, with rapidly rising credit and asset prices. [...]

The Balance Sheet Recession

In this interview Richard Koo set out his thoughts on the current GFC in a very succinct manner. I agree with him 100% up until the point he starts arguing for government stimulus to tackle the deleveraging.

My opinion is that he is exactly right that this event is a large scale ‘balance sheet recession’, which [...]
