Coming straight from the Federal Reserve, we started this period with around 4 trillion US Dollars in the system. One year later, that number is at 6.7 trillion dollars. Meaning that over 40% of all US dollars were printed in just the last 12 months. And from the looks of it, no one seems to be in a rush to slow things down. And strangely enough, we haven’t seen much inflation for everyday goods like gas and food? Prices definitely haven’t gone up anywhere near 40%?. Where’s the inflation?
The reason why we haven’t seen inflation is because the amount of money being printed is only one of the factors that contributes to inflation
To get inflation, here’s everything you need:
1. Industrial Output: how much “stuff” an economy makes
2. Employment
Too much employment leads to employers fighting over workers, which leads to higher wages, which leads to higher prices
3. The Money Supply: the main topic of this video and probably the easiest to understand
More money when an economy is producing the same amount or less stuff equals higher prices
And 4. If money is exchanging hands, and if so, how fast is it exchanging hands, or the Velocity of Money
And in our case right now, the money supply has shot up a ridiculous amount, but the other factors have been keeping inflation down
Industrial Output: It’s been down from businesses not being able to operate, which means less stuff. But there’s also less demand from you and I to buy those things.
Employment has also definitely taken a hit. And with less employment comes lower wages, which means lower prices. Not inflation.
And the Velocity of Money. It’s pretty slow for everyone with all the uncertainty in the air. People don’t want to spend a lot of money right now if they don’t know if they’re gonna be able to find a job or keep their job
But you know what they are gonna spend it on? The things that only go up! Like Tesla stock, every other stock, real estate, and Bitcoin!
But instead of calling it inflation, we call it the stock market rally, the real estate boom, crypto’s time to shine or the great crypto bubble depending on who you ask.
Should the money printer keep going brr? Can the money printer keep going brrr?

    Almost everything in this video is untrue. You were doing fine up until about 1995 or so... No, the government did not print trillions of dollars in 2020. The change in money supply was mostly due to changes in reserve requirements and government loans. No, the money does not have to "come from thin air" as the dummy at the 9:45 implies. Most of government spending was funded by borrowing through the issuance of bonds. The US hasn't seen hyperinflation because of the pandemic. The increase in government spending and federal reserve "liquidity operations" is merely compensating for what would otherwise be a crushing depression. If the US government can ease off the spending and quantitative easing as the economy recovers, normal healthy growth is possible. Just being able to talk does not qualify one to explain economics.

  15. Culture Whiz

    Culture Whiz8 soat oldin

    What a stupid boring video. The US COULD PrInt OVER 12 trillion-dollar without causing inflation. For starters, the United States has what has been called the “exorbitant privilege” of having the world’s reserve currency. That’s the currency held in large quantities by central banks around the world to use whenever they need to prop up their own currency on foreign exchange markets or pay the country’s international debt. And because the dollar is the reserve currency, it is also used to price and pay for most globally traded commodities - oil and minerals but also illicit drugs and weapons. Of course, those central banks and global traders don’t actually put dollars in a vault. Rather they use them to buy U.S. Treasury bonds, which pay interest and can be quickly turned back into dollars by selling them back in the Treasury market. And by buying all these bonds, they lower the rate at which the Treasury can borrow, allowing the United States to run large and persistent trade and budget deficits without suffering a dramatic fall in the value of its currency. These days, however, it’s not just central banks that want to buy Treasury bonds. In times of crisis, global stock and bond investors also take refuge in Treasury bonds. Lucky for us, a surge in demand has come at precisely the moment the Treasury is about to issue trillions of new bonds for them to buy.You can already see this dynamic playing out in global financial markets. The dollar has risen sharply, while interest rates on Treasury bonds have fallen to record lows. And central banks are now so desperate for dollars that the Fed has had to set up special programs to swap freshly printed dollars for other currencies. The fundamental reason for all this - the reason the dollar is the world’s reserve currency and the United States remains a financial safe haven - is that our economy remains the world’s largest, most productive and most resilient. A lot of that has to do with the confidence the rest of the world has in our public institutions. Monetizing debt to stabilize an economy during a once-in-a-century pandemic is what you might expect from a competent government. Routinely monetizing debt because political leaders want to avoid making hard choices is not. Some might worry that even if the new bonds are bought by the Fed, taxpayers will still be on the hook for the annual interest payments and for repaying the full $2 trillion when the bonds come due. Even that, however, is a shell game.

    The answer is trivial. We have not seen hyperinflation because all that money goes to a very very small group of people who pay 8 million for a Veyron to drive to their Yacht to. It only drives up inflation in the circle it is spent on. Supercars and Yachts might be getting more expensive than an equivalent 5 years ago. But the rest does not have the money to drive up the cost of a Cola can or the income.

    Every state where hyperinflation has happened was a failed state before the hyperinflation. What’s happening now that’s different is technological deflation. Thats why you have stable countries printing massive money WITH low inflation. The fed is fighting deflation the only way they know how.

    to be fair, im assuming it’s because other countries are printing at close to the same rate, as without maintaining it trade would drop, goods and services would be too expensive, hence the fact whilst the US is printing like crazy, others are following them too.

    I see a catch... it's being done globally... it's not like you are printing it and buying other currencies - that are not being boosted... It's global this time. "everyone's" doing it. Consequently, no one's money is becoming more or less valuable than the others... Bitcoin is rocketing, though. About as much as you would expect. Matching the numbers. Because you can't "mine" more of it.... same for gold, it went up. Probably will go a bit more up, but it's regulated through reserves balancing... So, technically, this time, inflation might not happen - since all currencies are dropping at similar rates. And being used to buy food, gas, pay bills... right back to where it came from. Technically. It's weird, but...

    I think hyperinflation is already in full swing in certain segments of the consumer market in the United States. Look at car and home prices. Loans for cars are up to 8 years with the average price for a new car being around $40K. Average Food prices in the US in 2020 were $47.00/day when they used to be around $17.00/day. Prices are increasing at phenomenal rates but people just aren't paying attention. The beer flu only accelerated the trend. The minimum wage increase at $15.00/hour will also kill the economy and lead to even more inflation and job losses because fewer businesses will be able to afford to pay their employees' salaries.

    Funnily, even in a video pseudo-selfcritically asking "where is the inflation?", you end up scaremongering about hyperinflation. MMT is misrepresented here. It correctly states that the non-inflationary spending space for the state is not set financially, but by the capacity to activate real ressources with money. Would there be, like in conventional theory, a private sector willing to use real capacities to the fullest, there would be no spending space for the state without causing inflation. In that situation, if the state wanted to finance e.g. an army, it would have to tax first (take money out of circulation) to avoid inflation. You correctly stated that the new money mainly circulates to pump up asset prices. Which portfolio shift will the wealthy make when they think that their wealth has become "overprized"? Will they then buy millions of breads or even cars? No, asset prices will just collapse, the money (given out as credits) will just disappear in a crash, as everyone tries to get rid of speculative debts, like it always was (debt deflation). The fed and state will then will intervene to pump it up again, like it did since 1987. Prices of stocks and assets in general obviously depend on periodic big government intervention, that's the current system. It has rightly been called "socialism for the rich" (but it also supports regular pension schemes). You seem to want to change that dependency, by having private banks to have the control over the printing press. Just look at US 19th century banking system how fine that worked. Many MMTers are of course also willing to discuss reform possibilities because the current system has deep flaws. But really, is the solution to those flaws to take the monetary control completely away from elected politics, into the hands of private banks? Historically, the private banks always made some kind of central bank arrangement anyway, to have a lender of last resort in crises. So basically you always have some kind of politics here, just not the democratically legitimated kind. I wonder how that would help things.

    You don’t see hyper inflation because a lot of the currency is in circulation in the other economies. US gains tangible wealth in exchange for printing money. Say the US prints a billion dollars and buys something tangible like gold, the US had a billion dollars worth of gold and the other economy has paper money. Who came out on top? The US economy sees no effects of the money sent to other economies and benefits from the goods that comeback in return.

  88. Deez Nuts

    Deez Nuts2 kun oldin

    Kind of answered your own question in this video and accidentally gave a great argument for current monetary policy...When you have massive unemployment in a recession the last thing you want is runaway DEFLATION. Take a look at the Great Depression if you want to see what that looks like. Basically if you have a depressed economy and the value of money is increasing (I.e.lower prices) this just encourages sitting in money in savings, not investing, not purchasing because you get more bang for your buck the next day. This kills demand even further, decreases the velocity of money, and causes more layoffs, more deflation and so on and so on...The point of “printing money” really expanding the money supply through expansionary monetary policy is to avoid deflation and encourage spending/investment. And this process goes the same way in reverse when the economy is booming and inflation becomes a problem. In sum, Peter Schiff is just a gold bug loon that nobody listens too anymore 👍

    At the 20 minute mark, probably the only cogent(?) argument against modern economic policy by describing a scenario where printing money becomes a permanent, regular source of funds for profligate spending... which is contrary to how the Fed now uses this tool which is to mainly to prevent economic adverse events. But, there is a flaw in the argument... looking only at the consumer of services who since is "given" money has not contributed to the economic productivity. This flawed argument ignores the fact that today our primary measuring stick of national productivity (GDP) is largely based on produced services and is no longer based on making widgets. This was done to reflect the US economy changing from an industrial economy to a services based economy (The guy who provides you a service but doesn't actually make your washing machine is a big part of today's economy). By todays measurements of economic activity, by simply giving the indigent and indolent the means to spend (and not simply stuff in savings accounts like the wealthy), a substantial contribution is made to enable to service providers more opportunities to transact and make money, increasing economic velocity and health.

    US Dollar is worthless until accepted and changed to foreign goods and investment. Because other countries accept it without any security. US is cheating the world by controlling most of their banks and stocks. US dollar won't collapse unless foreign countries stop accepting it.

    When he talks about consumers not contributing to the production of goods and services he uses a bad example. Unemployed consumers do not hold a candle to the amount of consumption made by banks, certain investors, and insurance companies. I wonder what percent of purchase power this country has is owned by the unemployed and what percent is owned by wall street and banks? I am not talking about regular investing or lending in a free market....

    "...extra money always ends up on consumer prices; it's like the final resting place for inflation..." Inflation's final resting place these last 25 years has been with the structurally unemployed. And much of the 2 trillion will be used to service private household debt, which is not a consumer good; it's a consumer expense.

    The best beautiful bit of being a soverign nation is that you can, and do, create money. There's no inflation because the new dollars in circulation should have been in circulation long ago. And it's usually WAGE INCREASES that are responsible for kicking inflation upwards, and these dollar handouts are NOT wages.

    Did the Government pass a law compelling everyone to own a cell phone? This is the essence of the power/authority to print money. Neither you nor I can print money. If we do, government laws will be enforced to prevent/incarcerate us from doing so. Look at the taxes that the government has attached to your cell phone bill. To fund things deemed appropriate, the government leeches on to things that we do without compulsion and bleeds them dry. They have decreed what is appropriate to spend our tax money. When they exceed the tax money available in the USA case, they just print more money.

    He has a point tho money is supposed to represent a good or service you produced to society when money stops representing that it becomes valueless and hyperinflation starts

    I don't think anyone in finance has a worse track record than Peter Schiff. Austrian economists are as much economists as scientologists are scientists. They are both religions, just based off different science fiction authors.
