Richard Ebeling: “How The Fed Goes Bust”, Interview on RT’s Prime Interest.

August 15, 2013

Economics professor Richard Ebeling is interviewed on a show called Prime Interest, which is produced by RT, formerly known a Russia Today. It is a Russian based television network that is a non-profit organization funded by the federal budget of Russia. It is hard to believe you have to go to Russian television to find an Austrian economist give an outstanding analysis of how the Federal Reserves policy of low-interest rates, and electronically printing counterfeit money, created the artificial economic boom that led to the 08 bust, and how this same policy has them in a box from which there is probably no escape. They have to keep counterfeiting money or their will be a huge correction. Because they injected ever-increasing amounts of counterfeit money, in order to keep the correction from happening in 08, the inevitable correction will be much worse, and more painful, than if they would have let the correction run its course.

The interview starts at 2:48 and ends at 13:50, and is well worth it. He also talks about his interactions whth F. A. Hayek and Murray Rothbard two of the three most well-known Austrian economists, the other being Ludwig von Mises.

You can’t find this on American television news. Is American television the new Pravda? Pravda, which means “Truth”, was the state news paper of Russia.

RESULTS OF COUNTERFEITING

In a previous post titled, Financial Markets Move When The Puppet Master Speaks, we talked about some of the consequences the Fed creates, when it electronically counterfeits money and injects it into the economy. Some of these are 1) the misallocation of scarce resources into activities that can’t be sustained when the counterfeit money injections are halted, and 2) people’s real production is being redistributed to the first receivers of the counterfeit money (which is known in my world as theft). What’s the difference when real savings enter the market as opposed to counterfeit savings? Lets see what happens, but first let’s talk about money.

Federal Reserve Policy Makers Have An Incestuous Intellectual Relationship With Each Other.

The Federal Reserve: The Biggest Scam In History

This article, “A Bold Dissenter At The Fed, Hoping His Doubts Are Wrong”, by Binyamin Applebaum in The NY Times, is an example of , what Thomas Sowell calls, “credentialed ignorance”. He is being rather nice because I would call it an example of intellectual inbreeding. These Federal Reserve policy makers have earned their economic credentials from some of the “best” Universities, and we should stand in awe of them. Unfortunately I don’t give my respect to people with “status” that easily. I think respect is something that is earned, and just because they have a particular position or status in the political or intellectual world, doesn’t mean they should get my respect. What I have observed is that these people live in a continual feed back loop. They all think (more…)
