An MMT site bringing you dogma-free economics without the pleadings of self interest
Hey everybody!Take your wallet out of your back pocket and check it.I think moron Santelli thinks his picture is on the bills!LOL!
Interesting that when Mike tried to get out the Treasury rollover amount, Santelli suddenly started talking non-stop - seeming to to prevent the audience from hearing that the Treasury routinely rolls over way more than the $15 trillion figure Santelli thinks is such a nightmare.
Dan,Right but I would add that if you look at the Daily Statement Table 3-C, the govt itself holds 5T of the 15T so Santelli is off by a full third even within his false paradigm:https://www.fms.treas.gov/fmsweb/viewDTSFiles?dir=w&fname=12050300.pdfResp,
Right Matt, he complains that that the Fed and Treasury have an "incestuous relationship". But that incestuous relationship is one of the things that means that the amount of debt service that actually goes through his wallet is minuscule. It's just two departments of the government shuffling account balances back and forth to each other like ping pong balls.
Wall Street has become a casino. Casino's have shills.
right Dan that phrase "incestuous relationship" got me too...How does Santelli think that Treasury can settle a bond auction without the Fed?So I guess he thinks the Fed should not buy Treasuries from the Primary Dealers with reserves, but its perfectly fine if the Fed provides reserves to the Primary Dealers so THEY can buy the Treasuries... OK!
Thanks Matt for posting the video.
That video was hilarious. Great job Mike. Santelli's a complete asshole. Why don't you tell the idiot about the big coin next time. Bet that would blow his mind!
He did not like Mike telling the truth. He is not as dumb as he seems. He must have understood what Mike was saying, otherwise he would not have so desperately talked over his point. Wow. The things they don't want us to know...
Xan,Tom observed yesterday that very point. Santelli had someone in his ear tell him to scream over Mike so as to not let the truth out. I'm not so sure there could be a CNBC program director or producer up to speed on MMT that would make that quick decision. But anyone contrary to Santelli gets screamed over or hooked, as was the case yesterday.
Great job Mike :) Keep up the Awesomeness.
I fail to see the relevancy of Mr. Normans figure. It makes perfect sense that refinancing 16 trillion on short term rollovers would balloon the borrowing mechanism to 5 times its debt. Plus he failed to mention the lack of ramification on interest rates was helped by global monies rush to safety. His argument on inflation through higher interest payment has to be offset by increased national economic output was far from complete in theory. I believe the European crisis as its being played out would take issue with such comments
