Danger Ahead: The Fed’s Great Modern Monetary Experiment
If the federal government wants to spend money, then it must tax or borrow … at least, that’s what we were all taught.
But for the last decade, Washington has relied on backhanded money printing made possible by the Federal Reserve’s endless program of buying up U.S. government debt.
The truth is, paying off those Treasury bills will probably cost the economy more than simply writing them off.
I explain in this week’s video why that could lead us to a shocking conclusion.
The Economic Revolution Has Already Begun
As an economist and historian, I can tell you, we have already embarked on the greatest experiment in modern monetary history … one that could turn our economy, politics and markets upside down.
In today’s video you’ll see:
- The revolutionary alternative to the Fed’s policy that would see money printing go to Main Street, not Wall Street. (11:06-12:28)
- What the establishment gets wrong about the current economic system. (15:05-15:39)
- The truth about what causes inflation, and what that says about tremendous economic potential for the U.S. (15:39-18:37)

An economist by training, I grew up in the U.S. but emigrated to South Africa in the mid-1980s where I became deeply involved in the development and implementation of post-apartheid economic and urbanization policy. During the 90s and 2000s, I was a consultant to a variety of entities, including African and European governments and the United Nations.
