  • 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. I know what I want to say, I just can't say it right. Here is the conversation, with me and a poster who I will called "Keynes...

  • Money Printing by Central Banks

    Ok so the word is on the street that the US Federal Reserve has been printing a lot of money. But what about other countries like, say, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, India, China, Singapore, Kazakhstan, Greece, Canada, and Germany?

  • 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. So the money supply should be potentially inflated by 10 times the Fed's purchase because of fractional...

  • Re: Inflation vs. Deflation FINAL

    One future prediction I am certain of. When the Federal Reserve triples the base money supply in two years, while production is collapsing, then prices will rise. When the dollar loses its reserve currency status then prices will rocket. As far as today's CPI numbers are concerned, two things. One...

    Would it be better to back the pound/dollar/euro/whatever with gold or silver? Or both?

  • Looking for used Richard Maybury "Uncle Eric" books (or similar)

    My son will be turning 8 years old soon and he is exceptionally bright for his age...and he is really showing a strong interest in economics and politics.

  • Re: Why Deflation is Bad...

    I'd also read that too. Explains it quite well for a non-economist. Comparing it to the current situation I think this is what we are seeing (correct me if I'm wrong). The following 4 things can cause deflation: The supply of money goes down. The supply of other goods goes up. Demand for money...

  • What stocks to invest in now?

    There was a similar thread recently, but I wanted to expand on the scope of the last one. Mainly, what specific stocks should someone begin buying to profit on the demising dollar? I was thinking about Peter Schiff's "Crash Proof," but it has relatively poor reviews on Amazon because Schiff...
