Quote of the Day: "May"?


As manufactured credit balloons, savings disappear and the marginal productivity of debt collapses

"The Austrians may have had it right all along: ...ineffective central bank policies, which cause interest rates to remain too low for too long, resulting in excessive credit creation, speculative economic bubbles and lowered savings.”
~ Lance Roberts from his post (and tweet) 'There Will Be No Economic Boom'

  1. Note that almost the entire mainstream view on economic growth sees it coming as a result of borrowing -- of borrowing created out of thin air.
    So ask yourself what it means for this theory when both savings and the marginal productivity of debt are rapidly declining.
