John Rubino, a long term friend of the show, penned an interesting article today about a coming Debt Jubilee Meme. He questions whether it would be enough to restart economic growth and whether it would actually solve any of the problems we are now facing. Respectfully, we believe that John isn’t fully considering the purpose of the jubilee. In and of itself, it will not bring on economic prosperity. Rather, it will help end or limit the rampant malinvestment that is occurring due to the Fed/Treasury’s desire to keep the financial system afloat. Negative real interest rates, non-risk adjusted interest rates and excess creation of currency units are certainly more destructive to growth than simply acknowledging what we already know, which is that the cumulative debt can never be paid back and it is rapidly becoming unservicable.
