    This is getting exciting. Could we see an actual and honest discussion of our monetary system in the mainstream?

    BTW, FOX has apparently debunked the TDC. Love the constitutional crisis she claims would arise because Congress doesn’t have the power to create money!?

      This is comical. Article 1, Section 8 explicitly gives congress the power to coin money.

      It’s a matter of using this power in a legally proscribed manner. Under today’s law, this means a platinum coin.

      This is a great discussion, and getting the idea out there the government has this ability is very important. We’ve constrained our government for a long time.

      Overall, it’s worked out ok, but the end result is a huge asset bubble burst and massive demand shortfall. I would like to avoid imitating Japan’s no-growth economy. One way to do this is to have the appropriate level of deficit spending, combined with a fed which knows how to stay out of the way.

      Did you happen to get a video of it somehow? I missed it.

      • Matt Franko says

        Mike I had to walk away and missed it on the XM but I believe it probably came up in the 3:50-4:00 pm segment today which they usually put up at the CNBC website with a 30 min or so delay… rsp

    The jury’s still out on unicorns, but I’m pretty sure there’s a scientific, non-magical explanation for rainbows.
