    The coronavirus will bankrupt all Western economies. The bankers couldn’t risk model a virus. So the world is unprepared for this. It’s that simple. That’s what’s wrong with the world. Too much looking at spreadsheets as if they could capture all reality. So dumb. Ironic.

    You want economic stimulus? Get congress to pass the de minimis rule and crypto valuation goes into trillions overnight and holders begin spending.

    Crypto hodlers buy up markets and commodities. …..time for transfer of wealth. Death to fiat and support to crypto is what is needed. We wait till they accept this fact….end of the boomers. Our wealth is in crypto and we wait …..will will not play the fiat games anymore. Eventually only crypto can solve this.

  • Jess Yates says:

    • Al Brat says:

      Exactly. I can’t believe how relaxed people are about this.

  • White Knight says:

    End the fed. Problem solved.

  • Trellisoy Andre says:

    Giving everyone $1000 sounds great but they have to create that money, essentially “printing” it. When there is more money and the same amount of goods and services money is worth less.


      Such cause and effect are not immediate, however the trend-line has started.

  • philip mullins says:

    Because many people in the world , even if people who have money to spend , can’t spend it because they are isolated in the their homes ,
    Fashion , beauty , entertainment , travel , eating out and drinking out , weddings , out door sports and many other things that people spend their money will be reduced
    Why would people spend their money on investment properties when people can’t afford to pay the rent ?
    A lot of younger people who move out of home to get jobs , will be moving back into their parents homes as they lose their jobs causing rental returns to drop as more rental properties become vacant
    At the moment you will find that the stock market will go up and down as people think they are buying a bargain when there is drop , a day earlier , in the end it will end like 1929 in one big huge crash .
    A lot people will not in the short time waste money on unnecessary products and about 90% of products out of China ends up in landfill so I don’T see the Chinese economy improving in the short term and this will also affect countries that supply China with raw materials such as coal and minerals
    People are in for a big shock and only time will heal the economy

  • Mikko Kärkkäinen says:

    This guy is a walking disaster 🤣

  • Rolf Eliason says:

    Nope, I disagree. Fiscal stimulus may appease the bourgeoisie in the short run, but printing money is what got us in this mess in the first place.

  • Bull Bear says:

    Coronavirus is the End Game…US Government is doing a trillion bucks a day in credit default swaps….

  • Jimmy Cook says:

    No loan growth= no economic growth= no loan growth= no economic growth.

    Central Banks job= print money and buy up all the banks BAD ASSETS.

    Next step, Goldman Sachs, ADVISORS to the VULTURE funds.

    FREE cash to CARTELS who in turn REDUCE competition.

    Nextstep, IMF commands curbs on credit = bankruptcy to the average small Investor.

    Central bank deceives government into putting that debt on the government books and Consolidated revenue.
    = massive hike in taxes.

    What a ponzi system.

    The biggest Swindle of the general population in the history of modern economics.

    Those financial FRAUDSTERS  and economic VANDALS .
    They SHOULD be GOING to JAIL.

    We need public hangings of these frauds.

  • Lash LaRue says:

    Folks, Italy needs an immediate infusion of at least a half a trillion Euros to avoid being frozen out of the credit markets. Italy will be unable to roll over its debt if they don’t get this money NOW. If Italy defaults, the European Union as we know it is DONE.

  • The Truth Will Set You Free says:

  • Robert M.-Certified Day Trader says:

    If markets are shutdown for days
    (we’re already seeing limit days in the equities market)and people can not
    liquidate into cash, they will seek alternatives instruments to
    liquidate, but if these alternative markets are frozen as well, the ONLY
    choice  people will have is to get cash from their bank. Could put a major
    strain on the banking system, don’t forget, according to the FDIC banks are
    only obligated to hold a percentage of their total assets liquid. If
    this scenario should happen, there will be a “run” on banks as
    there was during the depression! May be a good idea to keep 20-30K in CASH
    right NOW!!!!!!…Robert from daytradingwiththelight

  • Angel Driven says:

    MONEY IS WORTHLESS! ONLY THE LABOR and real physical assets are real THAT WE PROVIDE! WE need to band together instead trying to scratch each others eye’s out. They realize that they can’t keep us all working within their system that they constructed. I AM awake. Are you awake? I ask to see things that are hidden to be revealed to me. I see truth within all things. I fight for the oppressed and defend the weak. I care for the sick and I teach the open minded. I am forever a servent of Yahweh God.

  • hand registered says:

    This guy is always wrong. Always. Don’t listen to his ideas. His solutions are exactly what causes bubbles. All professors in this world are socialistic/keynesian fools. His solution to a collapsing credit system is always printing more. This idea of money management requires to create bigger bubbles and crashes each time. Next bubble will create dark age if they keep going. We simply need to imprison all money masters in this world, and never ever allow 1 group of people to manage money for others. All Banks add ZERO value to humanity. They only steal.

    This is the guy that advised Obama to print and stimulate, and explode the balance sheet of USA. USA does not need the FED. USA needs to officially bankrupt and reset, including it’s corrupt political system.

  • Troy Brownrigg says:

    What a head line , which explains the whole problem in the USA today. All you failed people are dependant on the same group of people who created the mess in the first place. Fiscal stimulus , hell no they need thier asses kicked big time. Fiscal Stimulus did nothing in 2008 only to make the banks more dependant on the Fiscal stimulus today. A trillion a day is not enough for these leaches. The government made this problem giving thier big corperations welfare. Now they can’t survive without it. Fisical stimulus and the market still dropping 1,000 point a day. Soon it will stop when the DJIA is like 5,000. LMAO need more fiscal welfare. The dollar is about dead, worthless, A fiat money going to where it belongs , ZERO.

  • Troy Brownrigg says:

    Every one needs a thousand dollars a week just to keep up with the inflation the Government is making. Or we’re going into a depression, dumb fuxxs we’re in a depression. That’s right it’s a recession if your employed, a depression if your unemployed. Clowns in suits, can’t figure out you can not give away a trillion a day without a total collapse of the dollar. They will figure it out soon enough, what they did was totally destroy the dollar. Like these other countries are going to want US dollars, soon those countries will say pay in gold or silver , fuxx the paper garbage.

  • Troy Brownrigg says:

    The dollar will collapse the minute these other countries see a trillion a day printed and giving away, Soon they’ll reject the dollar totally.
