Austrian Economics with Glenn Jacobs

0

 

Glenn Jacobs spoke to a group regarding Austian Economics several months back in the video shown below which I had intended to share.  Today I realize that despite the best of intentions and saving the video I had not yet posted the presentation by Glenn Jacobs, published by messengersforliberty, which I would encourage all to watch.  Should you have the opportunity to attend a meeting featuring Glenn Jacobs as speaker I would recommend attending, as you will find him to be a highly personable and intelligent individual, and that you will find your time very well spent.

This economic presentation with Glenn Jacobs, aka Kane, was documented on September 5, 2013.

“It really ticks me off when I hear leftists and statists talk about how the free market causes wealth inequality, the free market doesn’t. The free market though out history has allowed poor people to pull themselves up and has given people more socio economic ability to move up and down the socio economic ladder, up, than anything else in history.
Paul Krugman, who is a keynesian economist par excellence, just wants to inflate like crazy, but yet he writes a column for the New York Times and it’s called ‘Conscience of a Liberal’, because he loves poor people despite the fact that he’s the guy that’s killing them, but then he’ll look at someone like me and say you hate the poor. I don’t hate the poor, I hate the fact that they’re poor.”

About:

Dr. Ron Paul was formerly the U.S. Representative for Texas’s 14th congressional district. He has also been a three-time candidate for President of the United States; as a Libertarian in 1988 and as a Republican in 2008 and 2012.

Paul speaks at a meeting of the Economic Club of Detroit in 1988. He warns of a coming economic crisis, which he claims is the end result of the government’s fiscal and monetary programs.

Again, Ron Paul had it right and told all willing to listen regarding the upcoming economic crisis.

Ideas Created The Federal Reserve…Ideas Can Get Rid of It

 

The Washington Post‘s Wonkblog, which can be counted on to defend every government mischief imaginable, reports on an “all-star economic conference” that took place in DC. Whenever you hear of an “economic conference” in DC, it can only mean trouble. The real economic conferences take place in Auburn, Alabama.

In the DC conference, the King of the “all-stars” — Fed Chairman Bernanke — graced the stage, and would provide a history lesson for all of the attendees. Bernanke described the similarities between the Panic of 1907, and the Panic of 2008.

The 1907 panic was created by fractional-reserve banking. When the bank runs got underway, and panic set in amongst the public, JP Morgan orchestrated the bailouts and the “liquidity” to “save the system”. Remember this was pre-Fed.

The 2008 panic was also created by the fractional-reserve banking system — along with — the central banking counterfeiter that now exists. The bailouts this time around were provided by “The Hero”:

Before we go any further, a few things have to be understood. First, both in 1907 and 2008 the banking systems were dishonest and fraudulent. The situation in 1907 is actually preferable to today because, back then, gold still provided a check on the bankers. In 2008 (and today) there are no checks. It’s basically unlimited power for the bankers to finance whatever they want (until economic law shuts them down eventually).

A simplified explanation of the US monetary system

A simplified explanation of the US monetary system

 

A good review and explanation of the monetary system, by way of video, that should be easy to understand and be shared.  I first saw this posted by Nick on  againstcronycapitalism.org and finally had a chance to watch the video.  Why all the “End the Fed” rallies?, this may explain. The video below was published by whygoldandsilver.

The best, simplest, explanation of the US monetary system (debt, currency, money, taxes, what’s really going on) that I’ve ever seen. An important video.

Many people are mystified by the kids at the Ron Paul rallies screaming “End the Fed!”

They ask themselves, “Why should we end the Federal Reserve? The Fed helps maintain economic stability right? Every country has to have a central bank. These “End the Fed” kids are nothing but “Paulbots.” The people on CNBC and Bloomberg tell me that the Fed acts in my best interest. I think the people on Bloomberg and CNBC ought to know what’s right for me and my money.  Harry Reid is right. Those hard money people and kids at the Ron Paul speeches are nothing but a bunch of anarchists!”

But the main reason many people feel this way is because they fundamentally don’t understand what the “End the Fed” people are really saying and why they are saying it.

Monetary policy, QE, bond buying, bond issuance, taxes, the Treasury, fractional reserve banking, interest rates, the money supply, all seem maddeningly opaque. Most people just give up. If they try to understand what’s going on at all. And this is understandable. Monetary policy is a challenging subject. But it is not cosmological physics.

If only someone were to explain things in an understandable, straightforward way.

Well you’re in luck.

The below video does an excellent job of explaining the bulk of American monetary policy in simple terms. The graphics and language used are clear and easily understood. Jargon is kept to a minimum.

Invest 1/2 hour in the video. You will see how and why the Federal Reserve is at the very heart of our current crony capitalist economy. It will be well worth your time.

Bread & Circuses 2013

 

Harry Schultz once said, that with sound money (my emphasis):

People were more honest, moral, decent, kind, because the system was honest and moral. Today we have cause and effect of the opposite standard: no limits on what governments can do, control, dictate; no limit on government debt, welfare or socialist schemes. There is no governor on the government. This habit rubbed off on the public, causing them to go into debt, lose respect for the system and morality. The effect brings more divorce, fraud, crime, illegitimate births, broken homes. When the money of any country loses its base/backing there is no standard for any behavior. Money sets a standard that spreads into every area of human activity.

As the empire contemplates yet another war, and its central bank on the brink of creating yet another economic depression, the bread & circuses match the story perfectly:

circusbread

No worries though…the regime’s Keynesian masterminds are all huddling up to debate whether or not the “inflation target” should be higher.

Judging by the depths that bad ideas have taken us to, sound money’s return will be quite a spectacle to see.

A Political Problem-Not an Economic Problem-Catherine Austin Fitts

By Greg Hunter, USAWatchdog:
Investment banker Catherine Austin Fitts sums up the historic global financial problems by saying, “We have a group of people who have the power to act with impunity.
They are above the law. They are centralizing and consolidating economic and political power. We have a political problem. We don’t have an economic problem.” Fitts’ analysis shows, “We’ve been on a debt model, and now we’ve got to get the planet on an equity model. . . .You are going to do everything you can do to get people into equities. Slamming precious metals down helps do that.” But Fitts says that won’t stop the gold bull because China and the rest of the world are buying the yellow metal. Fitts contends, “What that means is there is going to be a much more broad-based bull market in gold. . . I think it’s going to more of a sound money system, and gold is going to be a part of that.” Not everybody wants to be brought into the so-called new world order. Fitts predicts, “Remember, to come out with a one world currency, you need everybody. There can be no leakage. There can be no exceptions. The Russians are determined to be the stinker at the party is what I think.” Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Catherine Austin Fitts, founder of The Solari Report.

Led by Rep. Ron Paul, Congress Explores Sound Money

Led by Rep. Ron Paul, Congress Explores Sound MoneyAs concerns over the U.S. dollar and the Federal Reserve continue to grow, U.S. lawmakers explored sound money, competing currencies, and the route to monetary freedom during an August 2 congressional hearing chaired by Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas). It was the final House Domestic Monetary Policy Subcommittee hearing led by the long-time champion of honest currency and reining in the controversial Fed, but analysts say the impact of Rep. Paul’s work is only just starting to be felt.

Entitled “Sound Money: Parallel Currencies and the Roadmap to Monetary Freedom,” the hearing featured powerful testimony from several expert witnesses. But Rep. Paul, almost single-handedly responsible for sparking the ongoing nationwide debate about monetary policy, offered his own thoughts on the issue as well, slamming central planning and calling for honest money as a precursor to free markets and true liberty.

“One of the most pressing issues of our time is the push for monetary freedom,” Rep. Paul said in his opening statement, citing Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises — widely considered one of the most important advocates of free markets in history. “The only sound monetary system is one which protects sound money and allows consumers, businesses, and investors the freedom to transact in the currency of their choice.”
