    How is this guy an Austrian when he thinks the fed raising rates is the biggest mistake they’ve made since the Great Depression?

  • Reply Al Storm August 18, 2019 at 7:35 pm

    Surprised he doesn't talk about fiat vs. the gold standard when comparing decades. Interest rates have to be low with our government's debt burden, otherwise the interest of that debt would be astronomical. They'll never let interest rates rise significantly anymore. It's a downward spiral, eventually we'll have to face that debt.

    These to are smoking crack
    Asset price inflation debt deflation
    We have had 40years of right right an righter monetary an political policy
    QE is a liquidity scam for 1 to 0.1 of the population depending whom you ask
    Those helicopters full of money never flew over the projects nor the Midwest
    You have no saving capitol you have no bonds who bleeping cares
    Entirely out of touch with reality
    Time to kill the fire sector
    Hang the creditors
    Deport an seize any one whom would dare try capitol flight
    Rico all there accountants lawyers
    Cut off the tax dogers fingers
    There is no market
    No efficient allocation
    Damn sure not an information processor
    Austrian neo-classicists Neolibral like Friedman all bunk
    Learn #MmT
    Economics for the 99%
    Government sanctioned tyranny for the rent seekers
    Via via la debt forgiveness

  • Reply Patrick Pray August 18, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    He's right about the rich socialism that has permeated US policy. Transfer of money from the poor to the rich. Which is why it's so funny to hear many here discuss "socialism" in a bad way, when what they mean is socialism for the poor. They are very happy with socialism for the rich…

    All goes to credit card debt
    Completely agree austrians are always amazing people I haven't met a single bad one yet
    Even come to the same conclusions is the sane people in the room
    Why can't they just dropped the gold-bug hard money fetish!?
    Would be so much more effective
    You understand true capital appreciation only comes from time an quality an mastery of craft
    I don't think they like the idea of unearned income any more than me to yet have this liberal tolerance for it like it's some sort of fools gold or growin pain people age out of
    *Here is a hint they don't
    They even pass it on to there lazy children
    It's destructive It's social consequence is equal to heroin or sugar or meth amphetamine
    Distortion of reality an forces others to be punished with undeserved obligations never rising in status
    A perverse nicer form of slavery
    Unearned income is payed in private debt accumulation can someone make a model of that for me?

    I don’t get this guy. In one moment he says the fed should not have raised rates last year and the very previous he said low rates will be causing problems in the long term. Schizophrenic. The fed saw low unemployment and low inflation, so I think the rate hike at least had a logic behind it.

    47:32 Here is where shit goes wrong, and where they need to go into the further story. And this is likely what really brings us all down.

    They're going for MMT. Meaning, no requirement for even an outside buyer. Meaning, you've made the actual last and total step into true and full Fiat currency chartalism. Meaning, the amount of currency has absolutely no meaning, no relation to real results or considerations, and is nothing but volume control.

    Meaning, all you need to do is make what we've come to call "sanitized injections" into corporate giants and funds and national champions, for whatever ideological reasons or causes or due to whatever political convenience or connections you may like. Then these giants buy up whatever assets or dole out whatever crap they need to own people or circlejerk things back into motion, transferring the value from the private actor, small company, bank account or what have you, and into themselves. Sifting in the most direct manner, from bottom to top, and then swallowing the economy.

    Congratulations; you've now attained "Fascism With Extra Steps". You're still simulating it, but you've in truth completely destroyed the entire point of the free market; efficiency assessment and incentivization. So the economy is now nothing but a tool for a by definition already failed ideology.

    What follows is then naturally that either the nation dies of cancer, as the innovation and TFP growth is smothered in the crib, from the bottom and up, and you have massive capital flight and deadly idiocy destroying the thing from the inside out. Or, depending on ideological and political factors, the alternative is that the system takes an aggressive stance and attempts to conquer and devour like the Soviets did, claiming resources from the outside and beating itself bloody against the rest of the world in order to feed the gaping maw of its own failure.

    Brave new world, ladies and gentlemen. "History doesn't repeat, but it oftentimes does rhyme…"

    ….really can't take it….According to Victor Sperandeo everything is ……destiny….Enormous debt doesn't matter…high/low interest doesn't matter…Trump policies doesn't matter….Inflation is neutralised by the Fed…So where is the problem..?Everything is ok ….and because Economies have circles why not waiting for this last one to roll over…..and so forth….It took me by surprise to hear a big investor who also declares of the Austrian school….

  • Reply Rick Hay August 18, 2019 at 11:03 pm

    Central banks were created to funnel money from the middle class to the banks. The Federal Reserve is run by the big banks and the big banks would very much like to buy your home for pennies on the dollar after they get those fat taxpayer bail out funds. The whole system is so corrupt. There is no capitalism in America. You have to have capital to flourish in a capitalistic society but the system is rigged to rob the middle class and push them back into poverty. Real inflation rates are above 6% while interest paid on your savings is far far less than that. The game is rigged.

    One of the best interviews I've ever seen (and I myself have interviewed market legends). Trader Vic was already an old timer when I bought my first stock in the late 1980s. Didn't know he was still around. He's still sharper than a tack. Adam Rodman conducted the interview like a real pro himself. Out of five stars, I'd give this video six stars.

    This guy is trying to have it both ways. He has only 1 foot in the Austrian camp. If he really understood economics, he would realize that the low interest rates were the problem, and raising interest rates was the smart thing to do for the long term.

  • Reply Red Pilled August 19, 2019 at 2:04 am

    Blah blah blah.. it's a Fed driven market, end of story. They can do more stimulus and create hyperinflation or do the politically unpopular thing in substantially raising rates to burst the bubbles and deal with the pain we've delayed for so long.

    This video must have been made in 2008 because this is the last time the US experienced a bear market. The US Economy is booming.

    This is Yet another of the FAKE NEWS videos trying to talk down the thriving US economy while virtually all positive fundamentals are at
    record highs. President Trump will be re-elected in 2020 no matter how hard you try to crash the economy. The rest of the world has problems but the US will thrive like never before. TRUE the stock market will go up and down like it always does but it will recover each time and continue to make new highs as the US economy maintains its "GROWTH" momentum.

    Smartness is important in a relationship and cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husband’s phone and I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share my husband’s phone number with cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone without having to touch his phone. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. I’m here in UK and able to access my husband’s phone messages with a link on my phone even while he was away in Canada cheating on me. I got to discover that my husband who is legally  married to me here in UK is also recently married to another woman in Canada and I’m finally going through a divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all his Whatsapp, Facebook,Skype,Instagram and Snapchat messages Including the deleted text and recent messages. You can contact this great Hacker Gavin via Gmail  (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and don’t forget to thank me later.

  • Reply L G August 19, 2019 at 4:59 pm

    Thank you Victor for explaining why the market has been inflated and for saying that you missed a good portion of the moves because you didn't think the Fed would keep playing the easy money game especially back from 2011 to 2015 when they should've been raising rates.
    I too missed a great portion because my thinking remained logical and I didn't think the Fed would be so screwed up so long.
