Hyperinflation has been a doomsday scenario for modern economies throughout the last century. In all of these failed countries (Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Hungary, Yugoslavia, etc.) there have been uniform warning signs, the same signs that we are starting to see today in the U.S.

    • Hey, I'd love to have something explained. Printing physical money obviously alters the supply of the notes, which lowers the value of each individual note. But nowadays paper cash is used less and less and what we use to count money are numbers in a screen which, unless they are tied to a physical good in the real world by the banks and regulatory agencies, in theory shouldn't follow a scarcity = valuable relationship. Say, a bank lends me some credit and just inputs some zeroes and ones in their computers; a balance that I can exchange for paper money and physical goods. What happens if a lot of people do so? Are they somehow "printing money"? At some point can they reject people from borrowing from them because they ran out of zeroes and ones? What gives? I think it would make for a good video to explain and clarify this virtualization of money (which is already an abstraction of economic value).

  • The marble/house example... That only works if interest rate lags inflation. Sure, inflation and interest usually have an inverse relationship but the UK in 1992 had an unusual situation leading to high interest AND high inflation at the same time. It caused a lot of people to lose their homes. ("Black Wednesday", for anyone who wants to read up on it)

  • The examples in the video are not of sovereign money. Weimar Germany had to pay France, Brittain and the US in gold for losing WW1. So they had loads of debt in something else then their own currency. Zimbabwe and Venezuela made loads of loans in US$. The difference with the US is that they don't have to loan in foreign currency. They can always pay their own debt with their own currency. So you won't have a run on the currency. That makes a huge difference. Still inflation is a real threat. But hyperinflation in US$, not so much.

  • In stead of focusing on the money printing, look at the other side of the equation: TAXES! Giving huge sums of money to huge companies does inflate the stock market and other financial assets like homes. But by implementing a wealth tax both the assets will depreciate because of the higher costs and money will go out of the stock market (and be used to lower the money supply overall) so prices won't go up as much.

  • Maybe this will help to better understand the potential productivity from free SOS (soil, ocean, sun). I'm a 15th generation private farmer on 5000 acres with a huge dam. However we only use 1000 acres for cropping potatoes, with an extra small section for producing our own seed potatoes for the next crop. The land was cheap originally, and simply passed down all the way along. My brother and I do 1200 annual hours of potato field work (planting, harvesting, etc), and the rest of the year just doing equipment repairs. Our potato equipment range has a 20 year effective lifespan, 2m purchase cost, plus a generously estimated 2m additional cost for all repairs over 20 years. Being very experienced in growing potatoes efficiently, we can produce 20 tons per acre at a bulk sale price of $300 per ton (about one-fourth of retail price). Chemical and fuel costs are about $400 per acre. We produce our own fertilizer through cover crops. After equipment costs (4m over 20 years), our potato's annual net profit on a good year works out to be over 5m (retail value over 20m). I think that is a 1000% ROI (or in retail value, 4000% ROI). You'd be surprised at just how much free value is under our soils, if only people were incentivized enough to pull it out. Another example, is that a 10KW solar system for $10k in a prime geographical location like Australia, will generate 400MW over 25 years, giving a 1000% ROI, assuming electricity there is 25c per KW. The math simply doesn't lie. Our SOS is full of an abundance of free stuff. You put in 1x, and you get out 10x. It's like magic, yet it's a reality through technology.

  • Fortunately, the United States can print an extremely excessive amount of money without hyperinflation due to American Exceptionalism. Actually, this is a great video for its breadth of economic theory. It explained inflation, value, exchange rates and how the U.S. dollar has been a medium of international exchange, and the slippery slope of borrowing as a hedge to inflation. Frankly, I think that the Fed has contributed to this slippery slope by having a long-term policy of favoring low interest rates, thus undermining savers over spenders (despite the short-term consequences of COVID). P.S. my first comment is sarcastic.

  • Economists state that the natural corrective against inflation is a very large work force. The USA has 44,000,000 who are 51 to 62 years old; 33,000 26 to 50 years old; 32,000,000 18 to 25; and 80,000,000 under the age of 18. That is a huge labor force plus there are legal and illegal immigrants working in the USA economy. Credit cards and then debit cards were added to the liquidity provided by paper money and banking and stock market accounts that recycle money on deposit. Then liquidity was amplified further through instantaneous electronic transfers. In fact, financial engineers now manage currency flow using electrical current formulae. The USA Treasury Department as asked Congress for permission to issue digital currency. The problem in the USA is NOT too much liquidity but too little. The $7.25/hour minimum wage is producing stagnation in Republican mismanaged States by not providing enough liquidity for business to thrive. The problem in the USA is not inflation but extensive slave wages that reduce liquidity. In addition, 38% of the work force has been displaced from farming because of agribusiness coming into dominance. Many in that 38% are included in the 50% of adults in the USA who have never set foot in a community college, college, or university classroom and so lack paraprofessional or professional training, skills, experience, and/or State licensing.

It’s just really hard to find housing in certain places in the U.S. right now. Even so, the prices haven’t jumped absurdly. I would think if there were really a problem with inflation you’d either see higher prices without a corresponding increase and demand, or a very large spike, above what one would expect if only increased demand were the explanation, but from where I am, it just looks like supply and demand.

  • Mmmmmm, you know there are Nobel prize winning economists who never see a recession coming or constantly predict some form of economic calamity that never seems to arrive, like Peter Schiff as an example. Is your presentation just another economic doomsday prediction? The problem I have with your presentation is that in my view it is woefully simplistic. Modern economies are incredibly complex beasts and perhaps some of what you present may come to pass in some form or another. Why don’t you mention the longer term incredible deflationary effect of technology, through middle to higher wage job destruction which is only accelerating as time passes? And what about demographics? With a rapidly aging population. I would agree with you that right now, asset price inflation and consumer staples inflation is very real, I live in the US and can see it for myself. For myself I feel that what is really accelerating is the wealth gap here in the US, a significant portion of the population are slowly but surely going backwards economically. This to me is far more significant than the possible scenario of hyper inflation.

  • "If all the money is loaned into circulation as debt, and the debts are subject to interest, and if we cannot borrow more than the value of whatever we are borrowing the money for, it is unclear first of all how it is even possible to suffer what you define to be "inflation." "In other words, if we can't borrow $50,000 to buy a $35,000 home or $50 to buy a $20 tire, how can we possibly *ever* suffer 'inflation'?" "But I don't understand then, even if it were possible to suffer inflation, that an increase in circulation per goods and services would engender increasing prices." "In other words, I understand that *if* we somehow *could* be subjected to a circulation greater than the value of all the things for which we had borrowed the money into circulation, *seemingly* that greater circulation which we do not even know can exist might only at first provide a capacity to *pay* higher prices; but as to why or how it would cause them, there is no connection whatsoever, for how does a factory say for instance first detect that one day the circulation we do not know can even increase in such a way has somehow increased... are you saying that in these potentially non-existent circumstances that nonetheless the factory simply raises prices one day, to take greater profit from 'inflation'?" "This doesn't seem plausible. I'll tell you why:" "If money is introduced to circulation as debt subject to interest, then merely to maintain a vital circulation, we have to perpetually re-borrow whatever we pay against principal and interest obligations. Payments against the previous sum of principal thus are re-assumed as new principal, equal to the old - making it impossible to pay down the sum of debt. But as payments against interest obligations do not count against the previous principal, our perpetual re-borrowing of interest to replenish a circulation means therefore that the sum of debt will perpetually increase so much as periodic interest on an ever greater sum of debt. Not only would this mean that there is ever less of a given circulation to devote to prices, much less increasing prices ostensibly tolerated by the non-existent "inflation," it would mean that as a consequence of this multiplication of debt in proportion to the circulation, that the system inherently, ultimately collapses under a sum of debt it can no longer afford to service." "So we have several things here - not just some purported 'inflation,' which we don't know even can exist:" "We have an inherently, irreversibly multiplying sum of debt, which ultimately engenders collapse, and which, all along the irreversible path to that collapse, imposes ever greater costs of servicing ever greater debt. While I can understand that *these costs* manifest in ever greater prices as industry has to account for their erosion of profit margins, it is also true that ever less of the circulation can be devoted to commerce, as ever more of the circulation is inherently devoted instead to servicing debt. Eventually, even *ALL* of the circulation is devoted to servicing debt." "So it would not be an increase in circulation per goods and services which engenders perpetually increasing prices; it would be the nature of the money; it would be that all the money is subject to interest which inherently engenders perpetually increasing prices by imposing ever greater debt upon the people. And so in fact, while industry can survive this irreversible multiplication of debt, it would be the ever greater costs of servicing this inherently ever escalating multiplication of debt which actually even requires prices to inherently increase at an equivalent, ever greater rate." ~Mike Montagne, 1968

    • This is unfortunately what people voted for; more government spending. The more people believe and rely on big government, the more troubles it creates. Look how popular socialism again. For some reason people think that because they weren’t alive during all its previous failures, that it will somehow work this time around. All you need in American politics now is to use the right buzz words like diversity and equality and people get suckered in to giving up more control to the government.
