  • Obama leaves the country with 20 trillion debt due to his borrowing strategy

    As the Obama administration comes to a close, the administration leaves the US with the highest national debt the country has ever seen, approaching 20 trillion dollars. Richard Wolff, professor of economics at The New School, says that following the bailout in 2008, the government did not want to raise taxes to match the costs of the stimulus package that would be used to kick-start the economy. Instead, the government borrowed the money from foreign governments such as China and Japan. Wolff states that the process of receiving foreign loans is only a short term solution and does not eliminate the country’s economic problems as it only further drives the country into debt.

THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS A PRIVATE BANK WITH STOCKHOLDERS! What interest do stockholders have over the things they own? PROFIT.

  • U.S. Ran $666 Billion Deficit In 2017! - Debt Reaches CATASTROPHIC Levels!

The U.S. ran a $666 Billion deficit in fiscal 2017 and that charts as the 6th highest on record. Let's get the "666" part out of the way first. Interestingly, the evils of the global monetary cartel are on full display. It's not the first time! In 2016 we reported on the fact that there were 666 interest rate cuts worldwide since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. We can't say any of this is on purpose but it's strange nonetheless.

    DEBT: The First 5,000 Years While the "national debt" has been the concern du jour of many economists, commentators and politicians, little attention is ever paid to the historical significance of debt. For thousands of years, the struggle between rich and poor has largely taken the form of conflicts between creditors and debtors—of arguments about the rights and wrongs of interest payments, debt peonage, amnesty, repossession, restitution, the sequestering of sheep, the seizing of vineyards, and the selling of debtors' children into slavery. By the same token, for the past five thousand years, popular insurrections have begun the same way: with the ritual destruction of debt records—tablets, papyri, ledgers; whatever form they might have taken in any particular time and place.

Along the way, I hope you'll understand why the United States' sovereign debt hasn't led us to an economic crisis, but also why budget deficits need to shrink in order to ensure that credit remains inexpensive and the US continues to enjoy the trust of the world economy. (Friendly reminder: Educational videos, by extensive precedent, are allowed to be longer than 4:00.) Here's why I think the gold standard is a bad idea: 1. By restricting money supply to the supply of gold, you risk shrinking the money supply just because of a shock leading to a disruption in supply from mining. This creates a lot of volatility in the money supply for no reason. 2. The gold standard limits a government's ability to respond to changes in the market, which can (and has) led to unescapable deflationary spirals. 3. Far from inspiring investor confidence, its implementation would crush it: http://www.ocregister.com/opinion/gold-369936-standard-money.html Posters and stuff: http://dftba.com My tumblr: http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com My twitter: http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen HERE ARE A LOT OF LINKS TO NERDFIGHTASTIC THINGS: Shirts and Stuff: http://dftba.com/artist/30/Vlogbrothers Hank's Music: http://dftba.com/artist/15/Hank-Green John's Books: http://amzn.to/j3LYqo ====================== Hank's Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/hankgreen Hank's Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/hankimon Hank's tumblr: http://edwardspoonhands.tumblr.com John's Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/realjohngreen John's Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/johngreenfans John's tumblr: http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com ====================== Other Channels Crash Course: http://www.youtube.com/crashcourse SciShow: http://www.youtube.com/scishow Gaming: http://www.youtube.com/hankgames VidCon: http://www.youtube.com/vidcon Hank's Channel: http://www.youtube.com/hankschannel Truth or Fail: http://www.youtube.com/truthorfail ====================== Nerdfighteria http://effyeahnerdfighters.com/ http://effyeahnerdfighters.com/nftumblrs http://reddit.com/r/nerdfighters http://nerdfighteria.info/ A Bunny (\(\ ( - -) ((') (')

This video provides a great explanation for how the U.S. monetary system works. It clarifies a lot of misconceptions about the debt. It also shows you the underlying reason this system is doomed to fail. The Federal Reserve is a PRIVATE BANK, WITH STOCKHOLDERS. Let me say that again... THE FEDERAL RESERVE IS A PRIVATE BANK WITH STOCKHOLDERS! What interest do stockholders have over the things they own? PROFIT. They are "loaning" the country money using bad checks they write from an account with no money in it.. By the end you will see what I mean.. Just watch.

Ben Carson recently had an interview with “Marketplace,” and during the interview he was asked what he plans to do regarding the debt ceiling. It doesn’t seem like Dr. Carson knows what the debt ceiling is. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian (The Point), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. "GOP 2016 candidate Ben Carson appeared unable to give a straight answer when asked repeatedly about whether he would raise the debt ceiling during a Marketplace interview posted Thursday. At one point, Carson said he would urge his administration to "cut where you need to cut" when asked if he would let the government default on its debt, suggesting he didn't understand that the debt ceiling authorizes payments on debts the government has already incurred…”* Read more here: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/ben-carson-debt-ceiling ********** The Young Turks October 8, 2015 Hour 1 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTpcK80irdQhzJQxjYGfdFCt_frWtnvsG Fox Owner Rupert Murdoch Apologizes For “Real Black PresidentComment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ifx0_iNjNl4&index=1&list=PLTpcK80irdQhzJQxjYGfdFCt_frWtnvsG That Moment You Realize Ben Carson Isn't A Serious Candidate... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsNeJqiaiv0&index=2&list=PLTpcK80irdQhzJQxjYGfdFCt_frWtnvsG Does Hillary Clinton REALLY Oppose The TPP? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTr7rUJ2iAA&index=3&list=PLTpcK80irdQhzJQxjYGfdFCt_frWtnvsG Turkish Army Caught Dragging Kurdish Body Through Streets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cn2yRBOssGI&index=4&list=PLTpcK80irdQhzJQxjYGfdFCt_frWtnvsG Ben Carson Calmly Redirected Armed Robber From Himself To Cashier https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xon8vdyAW8A&index=5&list=PLTpcK80irdQhzJQxjYGfdFCt_frWtnvsG ********** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the vast deficit in the United States which is growing by the day. The U.S. ran a $666 Billion deficit in fiscal 2017 and that charts as the 6th highest on record. Let's get the "666" part out of the way first. Interestingly, the evils of the global monetary cartel are on full display. It's not the first time! In 2016 we reported on the fact that there were 666 interest rate cuts worldwide since the collapse of Lehman Brothers. We can't say any of this is on purpose but it's strange nonetheless. Now, as the Federal Reserve prints insane amounts of debt based fiat currency continuing to centralize the monetary system into oblivion and an inevitable crash as well as buying up ridiculous amounts of debt, the government is spending at an unbelievable rate and forcing tax payers to pay the bill all while manipulating the markets into oblivion. Everything today is based on manipulation and it begets the centralized control grid being built on a global basis. A populace in debt is a populace in servitude. With a national debt of 20.42 trillion dollars, $62,648 of debt per citizen, $4 trillion in federal spending, this whole system is about to come tumbling down which by fundamentals should have happened long ago. With the debt ceiling decision once again pushed off until December 8th, 2017, this story continues to unfold. John digs into his calculation on global central bank balance sheets as well as gold holdings to present numbers that you may not find in other reports including some of the crazy happenings behind closed doors at the Federal Reserve. The bottom line is people need to be financially responsible and educated or reap the consequences. It's better to be over prepared than under prepared any day. Stay tuned for more from WAM!

DEBT: The First 5,000 Years While the "national debt" has been the concern du jour of many economists, commentators and politicians, little attention is ever paid to the historical significance of debt. For thousands of years, the struggle between rich and poor has largely taken the form of conflicts between creditors and debtors—of arguments about the rights and wrongs of interest payments, debt peonage, amnesty, repossession, restitution, the sequestering of sheep, the seizing of vineyards, and the selling of debtors' children into slavery. By the same token, for the past five thousand years, popular insurrections have begun the same way: with the ritual destruction of debt records—tablets, papyri, ledgers; whatever form they might have taken in any particular time and place. Enter anthropologist David Graeber's Debt: The First 5,000 Years (July, ISBN 978-1-933633-86-2), which uses these struggles to show that the history of debt is also a history of morality and culture. In the throes of the recent economic crisis, with the very defining institutions of capitalism crumbling, surveys showed that an overwhelming majority of Americans felt that the country's banks should not be rescued—whatever the economic consequences—but that ordinary citizens stuck with bad mortgages should be bailed out. The notion of morality as a matter of paying one's debts runs deeper in the United States than in almost any other country. Beginning with a sharp critique of economics (which since Adam Smith has erroneously argued that all human economies evolved out of barter), Graeber carefully shows that everything from the ancient work of law and religion to human notions like "guilt," "sin," and "redemption," are deeply influenced by ancients debates about credit and debt. It is no accident that debt continues to fuel political debate, from the crippling debt crises that have gripped Greece and Ireland, to our own debate over whether to raise the debt ceiling. Debt, an incredibly captivating narrative spanning 5,000 years, puts these crises into their full context and illuminates one of the thorniest subjects in all of history. ABOUT THE AUTHOR David Graeber teaches anthropology at Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is the author of Towards an Anthropological Theory of Value, Lost People, and Possibilities: Essays on Hierarchy, Rebellion, and Desire. This talk was hosted by Boris Debic on behalf of the Authors@Google program.

Drama has been developing over raising the debt ceiling, but Dean Baker from the Center for Economic and Policy Research says that what has become "pretty much protocol" isn't that big of a deal. In a worse case scenario, says Baker, the most damaging result would be the destruction of Wall Street, and that, he says, is not going to happen.
