Julius Krein: What Happened to the American Economy & How to Fix It

Demetri Kofinas speaks with Julius Krein, the editor of American Affairs, a quarterly journal of policy and political-economy that delves into the deeper sociopolitical, cultural, and economic issues facing America and other Western countries. 

The episode is broken into two parts, the first hour of which focuses on issues of political-economy, policy, and market dynamics that have driven the American economy into a state of “proletarianization,” where its citizens are increasingly ruled by an oligarchy of global elites whose insatiable appetite for wealth and power is endangering the very systems of free-market capitalism and liberal democracy that this kakistocracy claims to uphold. 

It’s an outcome that Julius Klein would refer to as “capitalism without competence and feudalism without nobility.” 

The second hour of today’s conversation is, unsurprisingly, the most satisfying insofar as Demetri and Julius tackle the socio-political and cultural dimensions and manifestations of the problems created by the perversions of what was earlier described as the “proletarianization” or conversion of the American economy and political system into a more corrupt, upwardly sclerotic, and extractive system of governance than anything experienced in America since at least the Gilded Age.

Steven Van Metre: The Fed is Running out of Tools to Save the Market

Tom welcomes macro money manager, bond king, and financial planner Steven Van Metre back to the show. Steven answers several listener questions later on in the show.

Steven discusses his latest video on why Q.E. does not mean money creation. The Fed is just swapping assets and forcing money into the commercial banking system.

Two main banks are absorbing most of the stimulus money. Most money is stored in the banking system and is not moving. They want to suppress and lower interest rates while pushing the dollar higher. The bond market doesn't work the way most people think. 

Investors need to understand this system because it will explain most things. The pandemic created many supply issues and caused a lot of money to flow back to the United States. 

This is now impacting foreign countries which are dollar starved. Steven is concerned that most investors are in the wrong asset classes and don't understand how bonds work. 

We're going to see interest rates move lower and the economy will likely head down.

Ron Paul: Is Inflation Biden's Fault? It's Certainly His Problem

Rising prices are amongst the many problems that the Biden Administration has created for the American people. 

But is Biden solely responsible for it? No. 

Previous Republican and Democrat administrations made their contributions with record government spending & the debts that they accrued. 

But the source of the inflation problem is always The Federal Reserve. For it is the unconstitutional counterfeiter that enables the politicians to destroy the economy.

Ron Paul: Shipping Crisis, Staffing Crisis, Empty Shelves!

The value of individual liberty is becoming apparent to far more people today than from just a couple of years ago. 

With government in everyone's face and attempting to coerce chemicals into everyone's body, the pain has become all too real. 

Individual liberty, free markets, and sound money are the only lifeboats that will actually float. Are enough Americans ready to jump into them yet?
