Learn Economics Topic Five

5. History of Hoarding the New Gold (Treasury Bonds):

The history of structured finance under Alan Greenspan includes both asset backed securities used as collateral and a new gold, US government debt also becoming valuable as collateral. Greenspan pushed risk off the banks and onto counterparties.

A Whole Lot of Gold Hoarding Going On

Gold hoarding has been replaced by bond hoarding. The system could break and we need to treat bonds differently to avoid bad things from happening.


Articles are exclusive to Talkmarkets if they are published on the site before being published elsewhere for 48 hours. Most of my articles on Talkmarkets are written to be considered "evergreen", or intended to be fresh articles even as time passes. Most subjects I have written about have proven to lend themselves to considerable lasting effect.

While I have supported some economic policy, it turns out that racism was a strong motivator for some of those policies. I oppose racism in all forms and prove my commitment by rejecting anything other than the Westphalia or Westfalia view of sovereignty, which is mutual respect for all nations by all other nations. 

Perverse sovereignty is as bad or even worse than excesses in globalization which gives banks power over governments. Both are ultimately bad for America. This blogger supports free trade and opposes a border tax. But government should be stronger in order to rein in big banks who abuse the people with toxic loans.
