    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.

  • Beware The Ides Of October... US Hits Debt Limit On Sept 29th, 2017

    Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin informed Congress on Friday that action would be needed on the debt ceiling by September 29th. "Based upon our available information, I believe that it is critical that Congress act to increase the nation's borrowing authority by September 29, 2017. I urge Congress to act promptly on this important matter," Mnuchin wrote in a letter addressed to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). The Treasury Department estimates it will run out of funds to pay its debts and interest on that date and financial markets will be watching loosely for action. If Congress fails to act, the U.S. would default. The date falls on a Friday and coincides with the last weekday of fiscal 2017.

  • 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.

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.

That killer wave is the national debt. Countries, like people, go into debt when they spend more than they have. You and I buy things with the money we earn. Governments buy things with money they get from taxes. When spending outstrips revenue, the government is “in the hole.” Right now, the hole is $17 trillion dollars deep. This is an incomprehensible number. What is a trillion dollars, let alone $17 or 20 trillion? Common analogies like “you’d have to stack $1 bills 67,000 miles high to reach the current debt,” though impressive-sounding, don’t help much, if it all. So, let’s bring the problem down to earth. Right now, most investors believe the United States is a safe bet. They believe, in other words, that they’ll get the money they loan to the US back with interest. But this can’t go on indefinitely. At some point investors are going to say, “you have too much debt; you’re a bad risk. No more money.” What happens then? We don’t have to guess. We can look at Europe, specifically Greece. Investors were happy to loan Greece money until 2010, when it finally dawned on them that Greece couldn’t possibly pay them back. Almost overnight, Greece became a very bad credit risk and the economy went into a death spiral. Businesses failed. Thousands were thrown out of work. The government couldn’t pay its bills. Germany and the other European economies had to step in and bail Greece out. But the Greeks suffered terribly. The same thing happened in Portugal and Spain. Yes, the United States is much, much bigger than Greece and has a much more dynamic economy. That’s true. But the principle doesn’t change. We can borrow more money than Greece, but sooner or later, investors will say “no more.” And if they ever do, our economy will go into the same downward spiral the Greek economy did. Here’s another point. At the time I am giving this course, the interest on our debt is very low, around 2%. But what happens when the interest rate rises from 2% to the much more normal 5% -- as it inevitably will? Where is the U.S. going to get the money to pay the higher interest on its enormous debt? Do we borrow even more? Well, that just gets us deeper in debt. Raise taxes? Well, that cuts economic growth. Then there’s the question of who these investors are who are loaning us all this money. The biggest investor right now is China, not exactly a trusted ally. The more money they loan us, the more influence they have over us. Maybe they’ll never exercise this power, but do we really want to give them the option? For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/americas-debt-crisis-explained

Obama can cite the 14th Amendment of the Constitution, which says "the validity of the public debt ... shall not be questioned," said Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C. The president may not even need to do that, some legal analysts say. The prospect of economy emergency, which administration officials say would ensue of there is a government default, gives Obama all the authority he needs to raise the debt ceiling on his own...

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.

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.

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.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin informed Congress on Friday that action would be needed on the debt ceiling by September 29th. "Based upon our available information, I believe that it is critical that Congress act to increase the nation's borrowing authority by September 29, 2017. I urge Congress to act promptly on this important matter," Mnuchin wrote in a letter addressed to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). The Treasury Department estimates it will run out of funds to pay its debts and interest on that date and financial markets will be watching loosely for action. If Congress fails to act, the U.S. would default. The date falls on a Friday and coincides with the last weekday of fiscal 2017.

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.
