Inflation Is Not the Solution to the Economic Crisis - Huffington Post

Inflation Is Not the Solution to the Economic Crisis - Huffington Post | money money money | Scoop.it

Almost instantaneously, as soon as governments across the globe went into unparalleled debt to bail out their financial systems beginning in 2008, economists openly were discussing the impossibility of ever paying back those sovereign loans, and that a different solution was required. The answer, so the economists said amongst themselves, was targeted inflation. In effect, so argued those economists, inflation significantly higher than recent levels, targeted at a level of at least 5 percent, would be "good."

But that will produce a long-term, slow catastrophe of its own Politicians in southern Europe will not make an additional effective move toward what is called "structural reform" unless and until they see the money in the form of policies to produce demand expansion and higher inflation in northern Europe. Politicians in northern Europe will not make a move toward policies to create demand expansion and higher inflation unless and until they see the money in the form of policies to make the feckless lazy wastrels of the south properly suffer.

Currency options - The Economist (blog) | money money money | Scoop.it

THE Free exchange article in this week’s print edition—On the origin of specie—expands on some previous thoughts about the future of the euro. History shows that currencies have tended to evolve informally because they are the best thing to use for trade, or be formally underpinned by a fiscal power. The euro has a flaw in that it is neither of these.

Banks Can Legally Steal Customer Funds From Private Checking ... | money money money | Scoop.it

Nationalize Money, Not Banks by Herman Daly - PaulCraigRoberts.org

Nationalize Money, Not Banks by Herman Daly - PaulCraigRoberts.org | money money money | Scoop.it

If our present banking system, in addition to fraudulent and corrupt, also seems “screwy” to you, it should. Why should money, a public utility (serving the public as medium of exchange, store of value, and unit of account), be largely the by-product of private lending and borrowing? Is that really an improvement over being a by-product of private gold mining, as it was under the gold standard? The best way to sabotage a system is hobble it by tying together two of its separate parts, creating an unnecessary and obstructive connection. Why should the public pay interest to the private banking sector to provide a medium of exchange that the government can provide at little or no cost? Why should seigniorage (profit to the issuer of fiat money) go largely to the private sector rather than entirely to the government (the commonwealth)?
