Stopped watching at 35sec. No, I do not want to listen to your morbid speculation or watch this fear-mongering negativity parade. I have been hearing this for decades. It gets tiring. Goodbye.

Oh, and as others have pointed out that equation would mean a 50% increase to inflation, not 50% inflation. From 2% to 3%, not from 2% to 52%. This whole video reeks of fearmongering for clicks/views. Playing off people's fear of inflation to get money for yourself and advertise your skillshare video. I like your content, this one feels like a miss though.

@EE Why does almost no one talk about how the repo markets were going crazy before covid? "In mid-September 2019, overnight money market rates spiked and exhibited significant volatility, amid a large drop in reserves due to the corporate tax date and increases in net Treasury issuance. Although some upward pressure on money market rates due to these seasonal factors was expected, the extent of the increase in both the level and volatility of rates in secured and unsecured markets was surprising. In this note, we review the money market events of September 2019 and discuss the factors that may have contributed to the sharp rate movements in the repo market and the associated pressures in the fed funds market." --Federal Reserve dot gov I remember the Hill had on Richard Wolff to talk about it and they warned of an upcoming crash before the first pangolin/bat/lab worker even got the sniffles. Bloomberg and a few other outlets talked about the repo weirdness too. It seems like this crash was coming, covid or no, and that not only did covid make it worse but Trump and his cronies were doing everything they could to push it till after the election, which also made things worse. The graph you flashed at 6:55 also shows this, that final hump goes all the way back to ~2016 and the high point looks to be ~2018/19.

@Benjamin Chen I haven't bothered to watch the video yet, but it looks like an method is being missed. Rather than repoing the money back, it could be taxed from the wealthiest people. In America, the wealthy don't generally pay the taxes they owe and they have so much money that even if they did tax back the money that we've been spending, they'd still be ridiculously wealthy. Bezos alone could afford to solve homelessness in America and still be worth over a hundred billion dollars.

I find it interesting how he kinda ignores the elephant in the room even though he shows it on screen: for the United States at least, the velocity of money had been trending steadily downward for over 20 years (since 2000) and only really tanked during 2020. Why was the velocity of money depressing like that? That's hypothetical, we know the answer: the buck stops with the 1%.

Have you never heard of taxes? That's how you control inflation and that's what will be done. Textbook macroeconomics is literally useless. MMT teaches us how the system works. Money by itself doesn't create inflation; resource constraints do. And that's all that's ever caused it in a country with It's own currency. We have severe underutilization right now. There's no danger of inflation.

So…A solution to inflation only needs to be just complicated enough that the dumbest of economists and traders don’t understand it? And if you don’t literally spell it out word by word, you can just do whatever you want as a government? I guess I can see why America likes to keep their test scores low πŸ‘€

Maybe inflation wouldn’t be spiking if we just... didn’t waste money handing it to rich companies and rich people ... who maybe injected 10% of the money into the economy! Maybe if we just invested in consumers who could then stimulate business by continuing to make purchases.... that would have been enough without requiring so much stimulus

Or maybe not force businesses to close up and lay off workers for no apparent reason.....

One thing I don't get: The government gave someone $1400 and he keeps it in the bank, just in case. The bank goes and reverse repo the money, reducing the money supply, right? But that dude still have the $1400. The banks can't take money people got. The only way this happens is through inflation.

You know all of this reminds me of the thermal nuclear tests on Bikini Atoll, when some of the best minds alive at the time exploded the H-bomb with 3 times greater power than what they had calculated.. Economists have told us for years that direct payments would be the most effective form of monetary stimulus. But what they failed to realize was just how potent such an act would be. In retrospect this should have surprised no one, as economists, disciplined and even keeled as they are, cannot empathize or predict the frenetic behavior of the common man being handed a pile of cash.

so help me understand.... if people dont spend their money its good? wouldnt spending more money boost the economy and help distribute wealth? if theres 5 trillion dollars but jeff bezos has it all then everyone else is homeless. what im saying is if regular people spend all their money on consumerism how could that create inflation since it just means the money is actually having velocity

The forth stimulus checks (survival money) that should be going to low income single citizens, is going to provide every benefit under the sun to illegals. They bus and fly them to US cities and pay for their housing, food, medical and everything they might need, while single citizens that have paid taxes for decades have to scrape and scrounge and suffer through this inflationary depression.

This guy is wrong about 2 things #1 GDP has nothing to do with the Velocity of Money as GDP is the amount of Goods and Services that are made in the Nation .. #2 50% Inflation in 20 years is NOT OK !! .. That's Huge Theft !! .. and the Fed 2% Inflation Target is Big Theft as 2% Inflation in 10 Years is 30% of Your Wealth Gone .. Prices should come down every year as we become Productive and this makes everyone Richer as they can buy more ... The Fed and the Government are Thieves !!!

People aren't sitting on their 'piles of money', they don't have enough money in the first place and are struggling to simply cover needs like rent and food. The people who ARE sitting on piles of money are corporations and wealthy people. The velocity of money is so low because so little of it is actually in the hands of the people, and that is why they can't afford to spend money. Redistribute wealth from the billionaires and corporations who made a killing during the pandemic and watch the velocity of money increase drastically once people can afford to spend it.

YOU DIDN'T FACTOR IN ONE THING!! Since a huge % of purchases are made digitaly now.. I'd wager that people using cash alot are more likely to hold on to the cash and until the "digital" money is out. The theory used to find the speed of money transfers needs modifications to bring it up to date. Could be 2x faster than they think..

May have glossed over something rather important. Now that everyone is saving the money that the government has sent them, our government does not have to borrow as much from foreign countries, due to the fact that the Federal Reserve is holding that money and can simply loan it back to our government..

This is not the only thing at play, but literally 40% of American consumers panic every time a Democrat is elected because they have been brainwashed to believe that anyone with a D behind their name is bad for the economy and will instantly/overnight cause a crash. Their behavior of course has a tendency to do exactly that (or at least exacerbate issues left behind by the last Republican boom-and-bust deregulator). Ask yourself what finally popped the bubble that had existed just fine right until just after Obama took office. It's the effect of culture and economic illiteracy.

3 questions: 1. Banks lend $100 into the system. Where does the payback interest of $1 originate? (Answer: Unsustainable Ponzi scheme) 2. Was it necessary to splash extreme fiat cash for a β€œCovid Stimulus” considering herd immunity was the ultimate outcome needed? (Answer: No. Governments over reacted for political purposes) 3. What is the inevitable result of too much fiat money that cannot be absorbed by the hidden tax of inflation? (Answer: Survival of the smartest / most prepared + uncontrollable crime) Can you comment on these 3 questions?

Bailing out rich corporations has to be the dumbest thing in history, especially with companies who dodge taxes or are registered in foreign nations to avoid taxes. It only makes sense when you realize that 99.99% of the politicians are corrupted by the same corporations and recieve hundreds of thousands of dollars to give them millions of dollars. Great deal if you can afford the outlay.

Some of us have been screaming this for a decade or more, but it falls on deaf ears bc our education system teaches us that Keynesian economics is the right economic theory when it always leads to destruction. Inflation has skyrocketed and will continue ever since Nixon took us off the gold standard completely and stated, " we're all Keynesians now." The FEDERAL RESERVE is RESPONSIBLE. They are a quasi-government-PRIVATE entity. It's socializing the costs onto us while privatizing profits to the private banks. It's disgusting and President Ford even stated, "It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning." The only reason there hasn't is bc our media is controlled by them as well, so people are indoctrinated with their lies on why we need them. Economics Explained doesn't talk about this in the video bc they would be de-monetized and the algorithm would prevent the views they want but they might also believe in Keynesian economics bc that's what they learned in school.
