Coming straight from the Federal Reserve, we started this period with around 4 trillion US Dollars in the system. One year later, that number is at 6.7 trillion dollars. Meaning that over 40% of all US dollars were printed in just the last 12 months. And from the looks of it, no one seems to be in a rush to slow things down. And strangely enough, we haven’t seen much inflation for everyday goods like gas and food? Prices definitely haven’t gone up anywhere near 40%?. Where’s the inflation?
The reason why we haven’t seen inflation is because the amount of money being printed is only one of the factors that contributes to inflation
To get inflation, here’s everything you need:
1. Industrial Output: how much “stuff” an economy makes
2. Employment
Too much employment leads to employers fighting over workers, which leads to higher wages, which leads to higher prices
3. The Money Supply: the main topic of this video and probably the easiest to understand
More money when an economy is producing the same amount or less stuff equals higher prices
And 4. If money is exchanging hands, and if so, how fast is it exchanging hands, or the Velocity of Money
And in our case right now, the money supply has shot up a ridiculous amount, but the other factors have been keeping inflation down
Industrial Output: It’s been down from businesses not being able to operate, which means less stuff. But there’s also less demand from you and I to buy those things.
Employment has also definitely taken a hit. And with less employment comes lower wages, which means lower prices. Not inflation.
And the Velocity of Money. It’s pretty slow for everyone with all the uncertainty in the air. People don’t want to spend a lot of money right now if they don’t know if they’re gonna be able to find a job or keep their job
But you know what they are gonna spend it on? The things that only go up! Like Tesla stock, every other stock, real estate, and Bitcoin!
But instead of calling it inflation, we call it the stock market rally, the real estate boom, crypto’s time to shine or the great crypto bubble depending on who you ask.
Should the money printer keep going brr? Can the money printer keep going brrr?

      @Jake Tran This video totally misses the point. The government doesn't spend the money on nothing, it spends it on jobs, hardship benefits, infrastructure, hospitals, schools all of which have a much larger benefit over the long term. Prices might rise for a few years, boo hoo, but on the bright side your entire economy didn't collapse. This pandemic was the opportunity for governments to upgrade public infrastructure to keep the economy going while the private sector has been suffering. I am so glad that I am from New Zealand, where we have a competent government which is democratically representative and where we disdain politicians who are as abhorrent as the one you voted into the last term. Here in New Zealand our government is spending their extra money on upgrading our entirely country, solving a housing shortage and addressing climate change. We defeated Covid in May with a lockdown and our economy has barely even taken a hit because of our success in totally eliminating it for almost a year. This video is entirely based on a straw man argument. A misunderstanding of the point of government spending, you never once mention where that spending goes or what it does to put money in peoples pockets so the economy continues to function. This video is just another part of the American paranoia of their own government (an institution which is suppose to be for the public good), a paranoia which is mostly based on false slander from the right wing and is ultimately self fulfilling.

    Its a dishonest description of MMT. MMT people say there's a limit and the deficit has to be managed. They also say pay people to work when the job market is weak, not pay them to do nothing (the pandemic is another issue) Tge objective being to keep workers up to date, active and to increase the output. The GOV and the central bank are NOT applying the MMT. They are doing something else.

    "Should the government have a monopoly on money in the first place?" Wow Jake Tran do you actually not know, that the governments have to BUY the money? This is the root of the scam - there are private companies "selling the money" to the governments (e.g. federal reserve). Maybe I just misunderstood Jake... Edit: Sorry I obviously misunderstood Jake. At the end of the video he discusses the problems arising from exactly this buying of money and accumulating debt in the process (by the governments).

  • ForcefighterX2

    By the way the government is NOT the issuer of money. If governments were the source of money, they could by definition not have any debt. The governments are just the entities creating the most dept in order to lend more money for specific purposes. Be it in Europe, where the European Bank creates the money, or in the USA where the federal reserve (a private bank) creates the money - in the end, the governments simply lend the money (by selling bonds to the central banks). However, most money in circulation is the result of credits given out by private banks to people and private companies. And yes, this is not 100% correct as there are minor regional tweaks to the system, but this is pretty much how it goes in most part of the world.

    Peter Schiff has been predicting hyperinflation for well over a decade in response to the massive quantitative easing in the Great Recession and now he is repeating these claims in the pandemic. He will continue to be wrong. This video grossly misrepresents the arguments for increasing the money supply so here are the real ones: Economic downturns produce deflation, and if you don't stop deflation, then no one spends money because it will be worth more in the future turning downturn in to depression. The massive increase to the money supply is just to keep inflation rates at their targeted goal and is in fact easily reversible, because most of the vast majority of the money supply increase comes in the form of electronic money rather than printed paper bills. Printing money has nothing to do with deficits and everything to do keeping our inflationary rate at a predictable and controlled level.

I can see your a hustler by being a content creator with a half a million subscribers making probably 12-$,15,000 a month of gross income. But does being a content creator on IRbin make you a business owner or entrepreneur? IDK if it does and if it does please explain.

    The biggest misperception of MMT, from people who can't read or listen, is around printing money. Zero MMT economists are saying you can print money with reckless abandon. Saying a government can't *default* on a loan based on their own currency doesn't also mean you can't potentially wreck the value of your own currency (depending on many specifics). MMT is very similar to Keynesian economics, which we have lived on for decades. I see a lot of lazy, straw-man arguments from monetarists or people that haven't read anything. It doesn't make for intelligent conversation....

    This could mean that, if you have money in stocks, you might see huge gains on paper that will actually mean that you are conserving your value. If shares stay at the same value but there are more dollars, the price of these assets in dollars will rise. So basically if you hold cash you are screwed but if you have real estate or stocks or other assets you will be fine. I guess I am screwed...

    I used to listen to Peter Schiff from 2005 onwards. He has been warning about an imminent hyperinflation over 15 years now. I read his book Crash proof, which came out in 2007 and it made a lot of sense, until I found out how money actually is created (Money creation in modern economy by Bank of England). Since most of the money supply is created by banks when they give out loans, Schiff's take on it is wrong. I found out that Prof. Steve Keen understands the debt aspect of money much better and he has actual empiric evidence of its effects on economy.

    What is left out of this video is the role of DEBT. The US is a debt based economy with extremely high amount of debt in the system- credit cards, corporate debt, car loans, housing, student debt, etc. In our debt based economy, the money that enters the system must outpace the amount of debt created. That is not happening. In fact the opposite is happening. ***Dollars get destroyed (deflation) when debt is payed down. The amount of dollars entering the system would have to be magnitudes larger than the debt serviced in order for inflation to even begin. That is why we don't see hyperinflation or inflation.

    A big reason why the Fed keeps expanding money supply is because of their retarded dual mandate. Their mandate of price stablity and full employment. Both contradictory and honestly, monetary policy doesn't impact jobs. It manipulates asset prices. So Congress needs to scrap that full employment mandate. But that would never happen, Congress (who is in charge of fiscal policy) should be the one task to support full employment.
