Recently, an article by Daniel Amerman caught our attention. Titled Is There A “Back Door” Method For The Government To Pay Down The Federal Debt Using Private Savings?, it details the process known as financial repression, where sovereign debts are slowly paid off by syphoning private savings from an unaware populace.
In this week's podcast, Chris discusses the mechanics of the process, as well as its probability.
In "The Crash Course", Chris Martenson presents an in-depth consideration of the Economy, Energy, and the Environment. Not only does he explain the fundamental causes of the current economic crisis, but he also demonstrates how the problems facing the economy are related to concurrent issues regarding our sources of energy and climate change. The information provided is eye-opening and vital to understanding the world in which we live and how that world will change in the near future.
Presented as a concise and easy-to-understand video production in language accessible to all, The Crash Course is completely free, in an attempt to inform as many people as possible about the problems we face, and action we can take in response. As Chris says: "In order to know where we are headed, we have to know where we are, and in order to know where we are, we have to know where we have come from." That is precisely what "The Crash Course" tells us.
