Debt Crisis 2015 United States of America Explained in a Simplified Way

by Akash Vedi • 1,110,684 views

Debt Crisis in United States of America, A Simplified way of understanding the whole scenario of the debt crisis, the inevitable collapse of the american Economy. A must watch simple explanation...

And when the global financial collapse happens revolution will most likely begin. Millions will die from lack of resources and warfare. People will be calling for the heads of the douchebags that enacted the ridiculous federal reserves that corrupted the whole fucking system to begin with. Reserve banks are the cancer in the system. Loaning the people the nation's currency at interest in a huge fucking mistake. A robbery of the worst kind and it'll bring the whole system crashing down because a few greedy fucks decided to rob EVERYONE world wide. It's a broken system. Either replace it with a resource based economy or hold the greedy fucks accountable. Oh that's right they've got everyone in their pocket so they're untouchable. Fucking bullshit. Why is it no one listens to voice of reason? If people did so maybe we wouldn't be heading towards extinction by greed!

What about lowering high taxes to get more money (laffer curve)? Governments get more money, because lower taxes incentives business to make more money and then to invest that money in jobs so that they make ever more and so on, and with more jobs every cycle, more people will be able to pay taxes to the government. Also, lowering already high taxes will let ordinary people save money to spend on other things that will also help businesses. 
Report spam or abuse
+leandrox1 2 Things, Lower taxes are good, currently the highest rate is around 39%. And we need to balance the budget to stop deficit spending, Any good businessman hates standing money. Still money does nothing for no one. A good Businessman would invest that money to get more money and thus invest that again too get rich. People already earned the money that the government takes, lower taxes just means the government takes less. You make a very jealous statement about the rich get richer. SO WHAT! Money is not constant there is not a fixed amount it can be made and lost (not in a literal print more), Just because someone has more than you does not mean that they are takings from you. If we had a pie and you took all the pie what would I do? complain that the fat get fatter. no I should just make more pie so I can have some. If money was at a fixed amount then the rich getting richer would be a problem, but money is not fixed it can be made and lost. The president is not responsible for the debt as much as people think, The houses of congress are the one's people should look at and it was under democratic control when the deficit sky rocketed out of control.

I'm sure the Islamic countries would be fighting each other and China would have taken over half the lands. Europe would fall back to the dark ages due to conversion to Islam. It would indeed be a shithole, but then you would still blame the US for not interfering.

Actually gasoline is a different story because the United states are in agreement with foreign countries on the minimum price for gasoline so they can't have it below a certain price point. This is so that they accept the US currency to pay for gasoline or else countries would not accept the dollar as something with value. This is also why we are having wars with Iraq and other countries so that the United states can tell the other countries that if you don't accept the dollar you better be prepared for war

Why when creating money the more there is the more it becomes less worth? Im not understanding this rule? Why not the more money there is let it stay the same? why change the rule?
Report spam or abuse
+luis hinojosa Its because money is only valuable because someone worked for it. The difference between money & wealth is money is just a universal tool that allows us to trade with each other. Wealth is anything & everything one might spend money on. Wealth is infinite. Money is finite but in a way its infinite too because its recyclable, the faster money is cycled thru the system & spent & taxed & spent & on & on the better off the economy is. What makes america so wealthy is all our abundance of goods & services. Even poor people seem to have flat screen TV's. Compare that with Somalia, how many flat screens or cars less than a decade old do you think they have. If you just printed a bunch of money for the people of Somalia & passed it all out it wouldnt mean much because the country is a total shit hole & theres nothing to spend money on. Again the difference in america is everybody is working & creating things of value while Somalians are trying to avoid the hail of bullets from an AK-47, not much time for starting businesses. Think of it like this; whenever you have money in your possession just think how did you get that money? You did something of value even as simple as mowing someone's lawn & someone else therefore gave YOU something of value, money, and they did something of value to get that money & on & on. It is the essence of equitable trading. Its trading one thing of value for another thing of value. For instances if you took money out of the equation; -I fixed several people's air conditioners & traded that for a couple week's worth of groceries -I give 160 hours of my time within a month working at a retail store & I trade that for running water, electricity, food Sometimes money isnt involved, people trade things for things all the time. Trade in your old car to knock off the price of your new car. Trade in your old game console for some new video games. Most big box stores will let you return items without a receipt for store credit, you return a drill & walk out with a power saw. Money just makes everything easier by having a universal currency we all recognize as value. But dont get it twisted money is not some magical piece of paper that has value just because some suits in washington say so. It actually has no real value, by that I mean if armageddon came tomorrow & we all went into survival mode money would suddenly have no value, it would just be paper. But a knife, blanket, tools, etc. these things still have 'real value.' So with all that in mind the best explanation I've heard on this topic is that all they can do is print pieces of paper, they can not 'print' brand new Cadillacs, they can not print new houses, its not magic. Its kinda like checks, they too are just pieces of paper. Anyone can arbitrarily write up a check for a million bucks but unless theres actually a million in the account its just a piece of paper. And unless people actually work to create things of value money is just paper. Just like if the bank accidentally cashed that bogus check for a million you would have taken a great deal of value away from that bank & if you just dump pieces of paper in the economy it doesnt add any value it diminishes value.

This video is half right, every time the U.S Government prints money it makes existing money worth less. What this video failed to explain is the real reason why businesses are going over seas for manufacturing, and the true reason inflation happens. Rule of thumb: Any cost imposed on business is a cost imposed on the consumer. So when people say they want higher taxes and more regulations on business they don't understand who is actually paying for it. Is it the CEO? Nope. Is it the Board of Directors? Nope. Is it the Shareholders? Nope. The workers pay for it by getting their hours cut, pay cut, or they even get laid off. The Unemployed pay for it with less available jobs. The Consumer pays for it by paying a higher price for goods and services, cost of living goes up. Knowing this, if it costs too much money to do business in a certain are, that business packs up and moves to where it is cheaper, this is why businesses are going over seas. How do we get businesses to come back to the U.S? Easy, make it cheaper for them to do business here in the U.S., get rid of majority of regulation and taxation on business. Not to mention these regulations and taxation only benefits the Government's favored businesses by destroying competition and any future competition. The U.S used to be the cheapest place to do business and the best place for other nations to invest their money, not any more.  The U.S used to be a place where someone with no High School education can get a job and make enough to buy a home and support a family, not any more. For the past one hundred years the Free Market Capitalist system we had has been chipped away and leaving us with what we have today, a Crony Capitalist system that is leading into Socialism.

I have a question... I've been very concerned about the debt crisis for a long time, but one thing I came to realize this year is that almost every other country on the planet is printing money at a faster rate than the USD. The USD has increased in value in currency exchange consistently over the course of the past century because other currencies are inflating their money with even more fiat printing than we do. So if that is the case, aren't we just able to continue to print more and more money? On a global scale, even though we are experiencing substantial inflation, other countries are experiencing even far worse inflation than we are. The USD is still incredibly strong vs other currencies, and it grows stronger every single year because we print less than they do. We do also create some great products and exports. So knowing this, why wouldn't other countries still want the USD in the future? Why would our dollar collapse? Is the debt crisis really just a false alarm then? Or is there a reason why this fiat printing and borrowing truly is something to worry about? If you can explain this to me I would be very appreciative and thanks for reading. PS: Inflation sucks without complimentary wage increases.

I think Foreign direct investment is good as long as the profits drain back to the USA. I thought printing money is only done to mitigate the growth of the economy especially with the growth of the digital world, technology and new jobs that never existed 10 years ago. USA should mitigate the cost of labor disadvantage by elevating its technological advantage. It should also use comparative advantage to foster economic growth. However, the credit cards system is a disaster in the making. Similarly, the growing debt through accumulation of deficit is disastrous. Its time to lower spending by cutting down social security and others.

The USofA has always been a joke to me along with politicians claiming RepubliCAN'T or DemocRATS, they all play on the same team bought by the top 1%. I do wish with all my heart an economic collapse that will remove the punch bowl of everyone that has been getting drunk on the idea of free money lending and excessive spending, because it is greed that has put us into this global mess. It is greed, and only greed, what has placed us in this position in the first place. I do wish you my best regards for having a small business and not bowing down to large corporations that pay little to no taxes (WALMART) and i hope people increase their support of small mom and pop businesses.

why are banks willing to buy government bonds? I don't understand this
Report spam or abuse
+IronPump89 Banks buy government bonds as an insurance. Banks receive money from civilians, but the problem is more people borrow than deposit. By buying government bonds, banks secure themselves as 'trustworthy to load'. This means that the bank will receive money from the government and FED to further loan to civilians. This leads to more money coming back to the bank due to interest.

suppose govt. start printing money to pay domestic debt then people would get back their money and but for now onwards they wouldn't get interest  and so effectively their income will go down and hence they left with two option either save the money and cut down the spending or invest this money somewhere else but in neither case they spend more and hence technically  inflation should not increase.  in second case if American govt. start printing paying their debt to china then Chinese central bank would have more dollars and technically dollar value in terms of yuan would get lower but Chinese wouldn't do that because this would destroy their export market and hence whole economy.

There's are quite a few inaccurate pstagements made in this video. Primarily the nature of inflation and the role of a growing money supply. Fiat money inconvertible into any commodity does not automatically lose value as the supply increases. Reserves injected into the financial system when the Fed purchases gov debt does not go directly into the economy. These purchases create a more liquid banking system but this does not necessarily mean the dollars are going into the economy in the form of loans made by commercial banks. This is dependent on the velocity of money which is a function of demand for dollars.

How do we pay off the national Debt? Easy. If the gov't instead of borrowing money, just created the money which would be backed up not by gold or silver but the goods and services the country produces. Impossible you say? Well since 1816 that's what Guernsey, an English protectorate has been doing. Wrong you say to just create money? LOL Our banking system does it all the time AND CHARGES INTEREST. Banks never loan out what customers deposit. They just create a loan based on what their deposits and any bonds they hold minus the reserve requirement that the federal reserve says they must set aside. Then when a loan is paid off, that money leaves the money system. Poof, they create a loan, paid off, poof its gone. Will their be screams and cries from the banking system if we change our money system? Hell yes. But, who's side you on? The banks, or regular citizens you don't loan out money for a living. There's a book called The Truth About Money. Not sure if its still in print, but I have a copy. If you want to read what it says I can scan some pages and email to anyone interested. The politicians scream about the national debt, but of course they really only work for the special interest corporations, not the little guy.

I'm Canadian and I'm worried about the debt loads of my country, the US and Europe. I am no economist but I think we need to both increase taxes, reduce tax loop-holes and cut government spending. Not huge amounts but slowly so that a budget surplus is the norm. We already have a massive "debt bomb", let's start consistent dismantlement it by paying that money back. If all nations in debt would start slowly doing this it shouldn't be too disadvantageous to any one country. I don't like the idea of more taxes and spending cuts but isn't it better to make it a little harder for everyone now than future economic collapse which would put a great deal of people in situations far worse than a little belt tightening? This makes no one happy but doesn't cripple any party (individual, company, government, etc) involved in the economy. This is pretty simpleton economics but does anyone have a better solution?

Great idea: Make a "charity" toward paying off the U.S. debt. Patriotism rises, people donate, the country can pay off its debt. The rich will be big in this one. But does this make sense?

It's hard if USA isn't face the worse situation like Greece.  Btw there are three patriotism ways. USA must at war with some county I mean with county not just a group of terrorist and USA must deploy their marines in the field and tell civilian like "Oh no! if we didn't get more money our boys will be dead!" Or just find two counties that hated each other then ignite the war for selling weapons to them Or invade some county that has luxury resources by using "in the name of democracy."
