Muckraker of the Financial System

I have published on two other prominent financial websites, (as Gary A) and at I muckrake the banking system and found premeditated causes for the housing bubble and subsequent meltdown. I am married with 4 grown children.

E Saving The Economy: NGDP Targeting For The People
We face the threat of an expanded Fed balance sheet, zero lower bound in the next downturn, and the inequality of wealth, seemingly ever increasing. Helicopter money will simply have to be considered as a means to evening out the money supply.
E Is USA Low Capacity Utilization Low Enough To Prevent Recession?
Low capacity utilization and weak labor are with us in full force. Capacity utilization still runs below the fifty year average of 80.31 percent in the United State. We may be at the point where our low capacity utilization may not be low enough.

Repo watching is an important economic indicator. If repos don't roll over, credit freezes up. It is sort of like looking at a giant glacier, waiting for the big collapse on the edges.

Well, it would be money dropped to those who would likely spend it, prof. If people saved that would impact the money supply differently so Beckworth's plan could provide an ongoing remedy.

This is a very informative article. I think that this will ultimately weaken discretionary income on main street. There is some risk that you can't have everything going up at the same time towards bubble territory. The charts at this article show this. Dr Lambert says labor is weak. Perhaps that will magnify itself once these bubbles take a hit down the road.

Yes, QE has certainly failed to bring many back into the work force. It wasn't that good for main street as we look back on it. Powell admitted there is slack in the labor force. That is a pretty big admission considering you seemed to hear only that the labor market was tightening, from the current Fed chairman and her minions.

Well, Moon, it isn't classic socialism as business is still private. I suppose we could call it socialism. But there is only so much the Fed can do. I remember that Business Insider's Henry Blodget had the answer, that companies should simply pay better wages. We would not need Fed helicopter money to even out the economy, just a fair wage. Henry pointed out that there needs to be some Henry Ford's out there. The Fed cannot force companies to pay a wage that would ultimately make them more money with more monetary turnover. Money trickles back up, so the Fed and business are both chicken. Put money into the hands of the people. It is a no brainer. Want fewer customers, then automate everything. You will win for awhile, but not for the long term.

Some people say governments will be able to catch Bitcoin cheats in the near future. Harder to catch "offshore" accounts in the UK and US. Governments owe it to their citizens to go after tax cheats and punish them with felonies.

On my blog I discuss the past housing bubble, the crash and future housing bubbles and scams. Offering easy money loans should be against the law but is not. Selling bogus AAA rated bonds should have been prosecuted but the scheme came from the bankers at Basel 2. You can't go higher than that.
