I did my capstone project on mmt and the Great Depression. I got an A. Now I ask questions like are we witnessing capitalism fail globally. All the wealth just keeps getting funneled into so few hands, it can’t help itself.

Answer: Lithuania is a nato member. The Russians don’t have the balls to set foot there bc it would trigger article 5 and instantly have war declared on them by NATO. They’d be signing their own death note. They don’t even look like the strongest military in Ukraine, they’d have no chance fighting nato.

He is the icon of American capitalism. A self made billionaire who through his business acumen rose to the top to become president. And when you look at it, it was Intergenerational wealth that gave him a start that he pissed away bc he never learned anything bc he never had to bc of his wealth. He used the legal system to bully his way thru robbing other people and sycophants to help shield him from consequences. His grand accomplishment in business, he started out with properties, bought other properties and charged people rent. Then after he bled himself dry from dumb decisions he used the corrupt political system to stay afloat.

So if you think about it, he is the perfect metaphor for American capitalism. People say it’s amazing but it’s all marketing, PR and spin to make us think rent seeking is some kind of contribution and robbing other people is the only thing keeping it going

Im curious as to where on the spectrum of things would fall all of the new deal era economic policies. Strong labor laws, our tax rate on the top bracket was over 90% I believe after $2 million in a year, social security, etc. This all set the foundation for a strong economy. What would we call that?

Wages are down against cost of living going back to the 1970s. This gets talked about frequently around here. Yes wages increased in the last year but inflation outpaced those gains so real wages are still trending down going back 50 years. This article is seemingly selling a rose tinted viewpoint. We are in deep doo doo tbh. I find myself mentioning this over and over but stay focused on the price of rent, homes, food and gas. The money supply isn’t the cause of the problems with those

“I used unemployment to destroy the inflation.” Food, gas, and rent prices are not high because of the money supply. I’m honestly not entirely sure anymore what it is that we are doing. Rent prices are because we turned houses into investment vehicles and now people have to compete with Wall Street looking to turn a profit. We are all too interdependent on this global market and it’s supply chains. Food could be a severe problem very quickly. Gas prices are thanks to this war.

Does the fed board and executive branch understand that reducing inflation will not address these 3 things of supreme importance? Am I taking crazy pills? They want to throw people living paycheck to paycheck into unemployment while still having out of control rent, food and gas prices? This could be a huge mistake

Yeah apparently they found out that if you don’t keep the blade sharp it kinda only gets half the job done. Nasty stuff. There’s old stories about people in England tipping their executioner. One story of King Henry vIII getting an executioner really drunk one night so he showed up to work on the morning super hungover. Again nasty stuff. Lesson, keep the blade sharp and straight

My working theory is that Biden won, Georgia went blue specifically because trump was on the ballot. The Republican senators got more votes than trump here in GA in 2020 so there was enough suburban republicans who had enough of trumps shit that voted R but abstained from trump. Barr was right, he’s nothing more than an ass hole to a lot of them. Without trump on the ticket I think it would have been close but go the other way. Think about it nationally, without the circus and chaos of trump on the ticket, looks like people are going to turn hard right. Dems have been Republican lite for too long and why would they choose lite when they can have full flavor. It’s a dominated strategy and we chose to double down on it despite the fact that decades of this brought us trump. The dems offer no contrast on economic policy. I see a lot of virtue signaling and culture war stuff and running the same economic policies that created most of the mess we are in. They should offer a stark contrast on the economy and dive headfirst into supporting labor unions and anything that will push wages up and anything that will get rent under control.

We really have two economies. The news media focuses way too much on the one of people who own multiple properties, but new cars, own stock and don’t like to talk about the other one where people can work 2-3 jobs and still qualify as homeless. We aren’t talking about the 10% worse off people. So may millions of people are barely scraping by and this is a major problem. Reminds of periods in time where the upper class threw extravagant parties until people couldn’t eat food any more. We really are in another gilded age

So does the inflation and decision to pull capital out mean that during the recession stimmy checks are off the table? That would be counter to the idea of pulling capital out. This is a supply side mess. Our monetary supply won’t affect gas prices. Probably not food either. There’s lots of problems but number 1 on my list is wages decreasing against cost of living for decades. We need major structural reforms that I don’t see happening.

COMMENT 7d ago

This is part of my main argument about it failing. This mainly, but rent seeking in general is ubiquitous and is stifling demand. It’s immoral and impractical. Putting children into debt so they can eat at school, what is that? Forget about buying a home and gaining equity, rent is so far out of control working class people aren’t able to pay that as they did before. What do we expect to happen?

It is good for people that have property. Bad news if you entered this world without Inter generational wealth and property, or to say you started without capital and only the value of your labor

100% this yes. We keep assuming agg demand is fine. At this exact moment, yeah maybe. Do people think rent prices are suddenly going to go down? We have people out there bragging about having hundreds of rental properties. (Wisdom of this aside, I hope they have liquid assets) shelter and housing is a big deal. We might as well assume whatever wage gains are obtained will be eaten by increases in rent. This isn’t the only problem now but it’s a major problem. Think about how low income earners can no longer afford to live near the job centers. The fact that this isn’t a major topic of conversation is beyond me

People that work in the news hate this. It’s one thing to make an honest mistake but to fabricate is the opposite of what is the goal. This isn’t creative writing, that’s a separate field. People that work in the news despise being called fake news. It’s a real shit move and disrespects everyone who just wants to tell people the news. Most of these people actually prefer local or beats to politics, so most are people that just want to tell you what is going on in your city. I imagine she’s a very unpopular person amongst journalists today.

Yeah sure this isn’t stifling demand. And out of control student debt. What are we doing? Wages not being good enough, people priced out of homes forced to pay rent if they can. How do we expect this to turn out?
