  • Guy says money creates production out of thin air.

    I honestly could not believe my eyes when I read his post. I started to challenge him, and the converstation grew even more ridiculous. I have no idea how to respond anymore.

  • Quick Question on The Fed

    I just want to check if my understanding of the reserve requirement is accurate. When the Fed buys an asset from banks or government debt it creates however much money in the form of reserves.

    As Frank Shostak predicted in his podcast last week or so on, the banks are now holding excess reserves. The bailout package authorizes the Fed to start paying interest on bank reserves, and they have announced a plan to do so. If you look at the numbers, the banks lately have had around $40...
