In which Jacob and Adriene teach you about the evils of fiscal policy and stimulus. Well, maybe the policies aren't evil, but there is an evil lair involved. In this episode we learn how government use taxes and spending influence the economy. Sometimes the government gives, and sometimes it takes. And the giving and the taking can have a profound effect on how economies behave.

One thing the Fed ensures is inflation. As soon as you start raising interest rates to combat inflation prices go up. Somebody needs to study the short term impact of increasing interest rates on inflation and what the affect is on the feedback for the control loop regarding inflation and employment. haha Crypto might undo it all.
at 7:05 I was like "I thought u.s. debt went over $10t already, what happens to the clock?"so I googled and, guess what, another digit is added to it.
that is so sarcastically convenient as how congress raises the debt ceiling
Fiscal policy like presented here is economic mythology (I'm not saying it is wrong, where each nation's mythos makes the laws, but there are a lot of interpreted variables for any viewpoint); you can look at indicators after an event, you can change your stories as they happen, and you can teach how this happens, but nobody is sure. The problem with storytelling is that it is still a story, even if it is based upon belief. My concern is the national debt that comes with interest, and there is more at stake than spending money, because interest is a deep, deep hole to be in. In addition, the building a new bridge in government spending comes with political strings, where the Federal Government undermines State authority to political control the population through money programs and fancy idealist practices, and this undermines benefits in favor for what is socialism and the authoritarian caregiver state that even regulates religion through the tax codes. There is much more going on here than just stimulating the economy, it is also politically driven and is also about control, driven, national policies.
You can pay debt through higher taxes on the wealthy and making profit on government owned companies and money made from new workers buying things. Monetary involvement also helps through controlling interest rate and currency value.
I still think the Classical system, letting the economy run itself, is the better system. Private citizens will always try to manage their money in the best way, the government however doesn't care if it's productive or not; it's not theirs to lose. Plus it seems to me that when you give the power to indebt(A.K.A. enslave) to politicians, it doesn't go well.
P.S. I think the parallel of Classical economics and a doctor bleeding patients is incorrect and derogatory. It would be more comparable to letting the patient's body heal itself, with no doctor involved.
These guys were lying about the first part of the video. There are people who are the private sector of the economy,who own huge portions of bank stocks.
And these banks own portions of the federal reserve bank. Yeah,you may say that the "Fed" is owned by the GOP but its owned by central bankers.
These control the rate at which money is printed, which unconstitutional, its actually the GOP'S "TREASURY'S" job.
I wish people would know the truth that these organization's exist and that they are owned by powerful families.
THE FIRST PART WAS ABSOLUTELY TRUE,BEFORE SHE SWITCHED ON THE BULLSHIT.
I SEE YOU LADY.
But then with all of these ups and downs of unemployment, you've got people who are trying to find a job but can't. Do you let them become homeless? NO, that's where welfare is important - it's how you balance out the free market when things are out of control. Personally, I believe everyone, even if they aren't actively seeking work, deserves a basic standard of living through welfare payments. And then you've got to consider the fact that in the future robots will take most of our jobs. And then you have the problem where if 50% of our jobs will be taken and 50% will be on welfare, then why does anyone have to work at all? We can't fill all the jobs with robots (just yet) but we also don't want people to think it's unfair if some have to work and others don't.
unless they instated a socialist drug state that uses this policies to starve the country's people under the protection of CHINA, Russia and some of the worst dictators in the Arabs countries...
So yes maybe is a tool that can correct a country's economy but in the hands of conspirators and foreign interests like the Cuban regime that takes of resources for free, is just Evil lair mother...ers causing death and famine...
It's a bit unfair to compare Austerity to Stimulus on their merits if the purpose of one was to reduce debt, while the purpose of the other was to boost the economy even if that increases debt. Of course Stimulus is going to have a greater positive effect on GDP and Employment. The problem is, it's also going to massively increase Debt, which it has.
Ha! "Government intervention leads to unintended consequences". Bull. Anybody who knows anything about our government and our economy, knows it's all one big game run by the 1%. The government does everything on purpose. For their own benefit. They all look out for themselves, do dirty work, and kiss the a** of the people who either sign their checks, or give them the power to take money from us. Most have no idea where our tax dollars really go. It's sick and inhumane. And that's an understatement.
Classical theories still prove true. It's a fallacy saying that the government used classical theories in the early Great Depression years. Hoover and FDR used complete price controls and wage controls which made things 10x worse
You shouldn't really compare the Eurozone to the USA's economy. The Eurozone is incredibly diverse and consists of multiple economies in various states. Whilst Germany might do fairly well, Greece and Spain are failing miserably with massive youth unemployment and debt.
Did she really just compare classical (non-Keynesian) economic practices to blood-letting? There seems to be not justification at all, but if a comparison needed to be made wouldn't it be that classic economics is like not giving a patient any medicine and letting the body heal itself? Which makes the blood-letting comparison actually more like Keynesian fiscal policy of tinkering with something without having knowledge of the long-term/actual effects.
Keynesian Economics never work! We should return to Classical Econ or the Austrian school. All politicians and finance ministers are keynesian economists and the economy is doing extremely poorly now. We need politicians like Reagan and Thatcher back!
it's funny how libertarian and right wingers believe that we ended the great depression by going to war and FDR government spending was a failure.
what they don't realize is that gvt spending during ww2 actually went up 40% of the GDP compare to the 1930's <20%. lol
