Tony Robbins, please watch this video
Tony Robbins has a viral video going around. I think the video below by Cullen Roche is a significantly better / more accurate video in describing our monetary system and what the real and potential economic problems are (and which ones aren't).
I for one would much rather see Cullen's video go viral.
TONY ROBBINS, PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO….

There’s a viral video going around by Tony Robbins on the national debt. Unfortunately, he makes the dreaded error of confusing a currency issuer with a currency user. Of course, the two can never be compared since a currency issuer has no solvency constraint meaning that they can never “run out of” currency like currency users can. So the national debt and having to “pay it back” is never a concern. Rather, the concern is always inflation which is a very very different phenomenon than being unable to make payments. See the following video for more and if you’d like to review inflation and the true constraint for a currency issuer then please see the other video attached below. And if your interest is really piqued or you’re really confused you might want to spend a few hours on my paper about the monetary system which can be found here and contains much more detail.
Oh, and if you know Tony Robbins get this to him….
