Unsurprising.

After all, the bankers are ‘doing god’s work‘.

Just don’t ask “Which god?“.

    “Which god?”

    Recall the fable of King Midas. He was given his gift of turning everything he touched into gold* by the god Dionysis. The ability to turn whatever you touch into gold is alchemy. Alchemy is the preserve of the gods.

    Turning junk credit into ‘money good’ credit is alchemy. Really no different from turning lead into gold. It is the magic pudding.

    Thus, those who can turn junk into ‘money’ must be as gods. Fault that logic! If you where as a god, would you be willing to come back to earth? Do you think the government & its banker cronies will come back to earth because it would be the right thing to do?

    * Of course In the olden days, gold ‘was’ money, thus the reason for wanting to turn whatever he touched into gold in the first place.

      Correct. Something I find fascinating is that most folks have been “educated” to view this stuff as “ancient myths and fables”. But the evidence strongly suggests that those who hold the reins of power most often take this stuff very seriously indeed.

        FWIW TBI, this point is where I cannot accept Mr Keens argument. Debt is debt (credit is credit) whichever way you spin it.

        To believe that credit is money, is to ascribe the issuer of that credit, whether government, banker or even candlestick maker, the status of a god.

        Government credit trades ‘money good’, but it is alchemy & eventually the government will suffer the fate of King Midas. Whether that will even be in my lifetime, I cannot say.

        ‘Tis a long pudding that never ends.

          I agree with you. For my part, I simply applaud Steve for a number of key efforts: his highlighting (debunking) the gross irrationalities and nonsenses of mainstream economic theory; his focussing attention on the importance of (espec. private) debt growth; and his drawing attention to the truth of how “money” (credit/DEBT) is actually created (via loans, by the innately predatory, privately-owned bankstering institutions). All this helps to point attention in the right direction.
