No more than CNN will become honest and totally neutral/unbiased.

keepit is here to lie with total conviction and to convince himself that he is fooling people.

After all, the printing of dollars doesn't increase the number of dollars.

Isn't printing dollars, a lot like filling Jame's mostly empty corn whiskey jug up with water, and calling it a party? You can spend less, and have less. You can print more dollars, but you have to spend more of them, to get less. Either way, you still get less, and have to rely on government handouts to survive.

Maybe the problem is that you don't have the same definition of the phrase "increase the number of dollars".
What i mean to say is that dollars stored in a bond or note is equivalent to dollars stored in a savings account or someone's wallet or under the mattress.
If the US govt prints dollars to pay off a bond in, say China, the dollars stored in that bond cease to exist. When the US govt prints money to send to China to pay off that bond, the dollars added to the world system are an amount equal to the dollars stored in that bond. If this is done the US no longer has to pay interest on that bond (rah rah). The money (bond) paid off is equal to the money printed.
The economic world is big and getting bigger. The printed dollars sent to the rest of the world to extinguish that bond debt and bond interest can easily be absorbed by the world market.

Duncan,
Some call it a ponzi scheme but there are differences since money can be printed rather than just taken from someone else. I'm not to sure either type of scheme can last but barring mismanagement i think the us can continue printing for a while.

Printing money can be a good thing though.
I remember when India was extremely poor and people didn't have enough to eat nor any money nor much of anything to buy if they did have money. Obviously there were no big venture capital firms.
My suggestion at the time was to give everyone a credit card and then people will spend and things will be produced and the economy will provide things for people.
Sure, money isn't wealth, stuff is wealth, but the printing of money does a lot of things besides making it easier to pay off debt. It make economic growth possible. It has to be managed well though. Janet Yellen has proven herself to manage well and i bet she will continue.

... because you are in desperate need of a basic accounting course.

There are no dollars stored in a bond.

Seek out a community college. Learn why someone's promise to shift dollars from his account to your account at some future date does not increase the number of dollars, it only increases the number of your dollars ... while decreasing the number of his dollars. Learn why, on the other hand, each and every new dollar printed increments the number of dollars.

keepit, I have a five-year-old neighbor who understands this. Would you like me to put her behind my keyboard to explain it to you?

Incorrect. Those dollars exist in a Chinese account. They never cease to exist until destroyed.

This is too painful to read. I'm moving on to a different post.

I think he got his accounting degree, at Felon University... He wants to write bad checks, to pay off debt. Once the bank cashes those check, the bank is stuck collecting on those bad checks. His debt, is now somebody else's problem.

It doesn't seem to register, that there is only so much product to buy, and if everybody had all the dollars they want to spend, the price of those products increase. Products are worth what people are willing and able to pay for them. The banks that got stuck with the bad checks, are going to charge more for their services, to recover their losses. People borrowing, will charge more, to offset the cost of their loans. Guess they could print some dollars, to pay of the banks...

No, just a 1,000,000 Rupee note. They use the 1 Rupee notes for toilet paper.

If you visited, and gave a beggar a $20 (USD) bill, you just made him a millionaire, when he exchanges it for Rupees... Don't think he'll be set for life though, and poor and begging again in a few days.

Except the US has been paying off bonds by issuing bonds. You know, like borrowing off one credit card to pay the bill for another. They then issue MORE bonds, further going into debt. See https://www.usdebtclock.org/.

Neither bonds, nor their interest are absorbed by anything but the US government.

The people running the show, know they have a short shelf-life, their expiration date is less than 10 years, being very optimistic. The ignore the long position, since they know they aren't going to be around to benefit, in any way. They just want to grab all they can, as quickly as they can, so they get to choose who inherits their power and wealth, hopefully continuing the tradition. Those who have the control, the wealth, consider themselves superior humans, almost 'god-like', in that many other people, are totally dependent on what they chose to do with their wealth and power, that the stole.

Re: The threat of inflation.
I don't understand how they can keep printing money and not have serious consequences later. Maybe they can though.
The thing is, there are so many people hurting financially right now that it is better to print than to suffer.
It boils down to this : better to solve a problem (financial suffering) now and suffer later (inflation) than to suffer now and maybe suffer later. We might not have to suffer later. Don't do today what you can put off til tomorrow because tomorrow you might not have to.
I don't think anyone here understands the economics of currency any better than i do so don't pretend that you do.

All this paranoia about impending socialism is nothing. A few socialist measures don't amount to socialism.
Socialism is where the govt owns the farming and owns the oil and the govt is in the hands of a dictator. Trump wanted to be a dictator but it didn't work. Why in the world little guys (like those of us on this website) would want a dictator is beyond me.
By the way, the ownership of farming and oil is in the hands of stock holders.

Norway owns the oil, natural gas and has a single payer healthcare system. The US leases land or gives permits to companies. So Norway doesn't have billionaire oil barons. That's not something that actually changes the way most people live.
Actually it does, it helps to pay for healthcare instead of employers or individuals paying for it. And if someone considers Sweden who is much like Norway, one of their exports;

For those, who are no longer productive members of society, socialism is a dream come true. They no longer earn an income, and totally dependent on what the socialist government programs gives them. They no longer think about having to earn anything, or what it costs, because everything is give to them free of an obligation, just their socialist vote. Most aren't going to be around long enough, to see how all their 'free-stuff' gets paid for, or how long it lasts. And, they just don't care, just that they continue to get their 'free-stuff'.

To look at things from America's perspective, health care costs per capita as a % of the GDP, US health care is about 50% more costly than the next country. To give everyone how this affects the US is a worker at Amazon can make $15 hr or $2,640.00 a month. Add on to that $1,000 per month for company paid insurance.
When exporting goods, the cost of health care in the US makes Made In America goods more expensive in other countries. The graph illustrates this problem.

Harvey,
I hope you realize that i'm a 78 year old retiree who worked hard and productively to earn his income and retirement income.

I make no apologies to anyone for my relatively comfortable retirement.



He didn't plan to fail, he just failed to plan. When I worked for Boeing, they stressed that people should be prepared for life after their careers. I'd say with me that I got lucky.
I looked to learn and have various interests. And when doctors went to cover up malpractice, I can learn and do wood working. If my project works out, then I can have the surgery I need. Then I might be healthy again. If so, it will show that oversight is needed because doctors have no need to improve the care they give.
If all goes well, it would be difficult for me to work in a warehouse or a factory. A big box home improvement store might create a position for me. At the same time I'd probably be happier helping Habitat For Humanity to build homes. I know how to pour mud and do framing, etc. Maybe I could do both?

I heard a good joke about retirement (not about me).
This retired military guy took a job as a walmart greeter. Everyone liked him and he did a good job. The only thing was, he always showed up 15 or 20 minutes late for work. Still, they didn't fire him because he did a good job for walmart. One day someone asked him, "What did they say to you when you showed up for work late every day in the military?" He answered, "They would say, good morning general, can i get you a cup of coffee?"
