An economics, investment, trading and policy blog with a focus on Modern Monetary Theory (MMT). We seek the truth, avoid the mainstream and are virulently anti-neoliberalism.
And of course the classic one of all is the 'assume a horizontal demand curve' used in neo-classical economics to help show that competitive firms are better than monopolies.Debunked beautifully by Steve Keen in his latest lecture: http://youtu.be/jiJMzDtGOlE
George Will is a liar. He says that we owe China $2 trillion but does understand that the Chinese have already been paid.It's done deal, the money is in their treasury accounts.How can such a "conservative" journalist be taken for real ?For every dollar spent on Chinese imports by American consumers, most of it goes into the Chinese account at the US Treasury.
So as for manipulating graphs, how about actually swapping graphs out entirely ?Can Chinese "debt" be figured in since the Chinese have already been paid ?Isn't that completely illogical ?
@ googleheimRight, all they have done is switched funds from sale of their exports from their reserve account at the Fed to their savings account at the Fed, which is what tsys effectively are. When the tsys mature, the funds will be switched back to their reserve account and they can roll them over into new tsys if they wish.
