Debunking Economics and Why Bitcoin Will Fail With Steve Keen

This one much better. Steve Keen says how Karl Marx successfully incorporated classical economics to counter capitalism in the same way Ricardo and Smith developed classical economics to counter feudalism. So, to save capitalism, conservative economists came along and developed neoclassical economics, but to make their theory work they had to leave out banking and the financial sector to make the maths much easier. They simply stated that as all money in existence was borrowed, then as one person lost spending power another person would gain it, and so the net effect of money was neutral. Whoops!

In second half Steve Keen says why he thinks bitcoin will fail. For one thing, it uses too much power, as much as Belgium while only doing seven transactions per second. He says that if it became a major currency it would burn the planet up. It turns that Steve Keen's first job is an economist but his second job is as a climate change expert.
