This is what Mr. Long is saying on his latest presentation Matasii. No longer does low rates and Printing money work. It only hides or gives the illusion of a Prosperous economy. M2 Money supply (money hand to hand transfer) I think is best definition of M2. is not happening in this country. Guy goes to work, stops at the baker, grocery store, gas station, and butcher on way home. Saturday he goes to the local Hardware store where Fred the handyman asks if he needs any work. All of these businesses and people are transferring money to each other within a city, county, country. It filters around and around helping to grow the area. Today we buy from Amazon and what you pay goes mostly OUT of the Country, or into Jeff Bezos pocket. Very little stays in the community. This is the growing phenom. Thus to create an illusion of growth we print money and lower rates. This also drives up the value of your home, land, THINGS... the costs and the value. Higher home value means higher LOCAL taxes. I think the Market, or most of it continues to go up due to deflation. While the dollar becomes worth less the value of EVERYTHING goes up... Deflation... which is followed by hyperinflation. You have that to look forward too... Food goes up 10% a quarter as more layoffs happen, and so on. Got GOLD ?
