●The more federal budgets are cut and taxes increased, the weaker an economy becomes.
●Austerity is the government’s method for widening the gap between rich and poor, which ultimately leads to civil disorder.
●Until the 99% understand the need for federal deficits, the upper 1% will rule.
●To survive long term, a monetarily non-sovereign government must have a positive balance of payments.
●Those, who do not understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, do not understand economics.
●The penalty for ignorance is slavery.
●Everything in economics devolves to motive.
Remember the big bankers? They are the rich crooks whose gambling helped cause our worst recession since the Great Depression. The also are the rich crooks whom the federal government bailed out.
And they are the rich crooks who continue to rake in multi-million dollar compensations, even after their banks needed bailing out.
And they are the rich crooks, not one of whom even has been prosecuted, much less convicted by the Obama administration, because let’s face it, bribery works.
(Those campaign contributions and promises of lucrative employment later, create a protective barrier for rich crooks.)
Anyway, if you remember those rich crooks, the following graph will interest you. It compares the 100 largest banks with the rest of the banks, based on mortgage delinquency.
For many years, the mortgage delinquency rate was low and essentially the same for the largest and smaller banks. But once the big banks started accepting, bundling and selling “liars loans,” that all changed.
When those liars loans inevitably fell apart, the rich crooks should have had to pay the price — except for one small detail: President Obama (the self-proclaimed friend of the poor) gave the big banks money — enough money to pay off their losses and enough money to continue paying multi-million dollar salaries.
So, while the rich bankers bleat about getting “big government” off their backs, it turns out, big government is nowhere to be found — except on the backs of the poor and middle classes.
Today, nothing has changed. The laws and federal oversight of banks remain weak and untouchable.
As you know, bribery works.

No nation can tax itself into prosperity, nor grow without money growth. Monetary Sovereignty: Cutting federal deficits to grow the economy is like applying leeches to cure anemia.
Two key equations in economics:
1. Federal Deficits – Net Imports = Net Private Savings
2. Gross Domestic Product = Federal Spending + Private Investment and Consumption – Net Imports
