Adrian Vye
In 47 minutes Ferguson imparts the knowledge it would take a full-year university course to achieve It is tragic that the rudiments are not taught in high school

Jonathan de Ruiter
He does talk about the interconnectedness of the so-called "private" banking system and the state That it is a tangled web, especially now It is true to say that banks create money by issuing loans [which then become very fragile/risky due to fractional reserve policies], but what determines bank interest rates [and by extension loan frequency]? The Fed You also have the messy business of private banks and other countries buying government bonds

Ben Kelly
25 mins in he talks about state monopolies in money creation This is generally true of paper money but as that only accounts for around 3 of money created is missing quite a major point here Most money creation these days is by banks when they issue loans Surely worth mentioning

Not a fan of Ferguson's politics or his smug delivery but Ascent of Money is a fine piece of work

WHAT?! Financial institutions have intermediated between savers and borrowers for millenia? HOLD ON A MINUTE -- THERE WERE NO SAVERS FOR MOST OF HISTORY!! The money lender got rich by creative accounting -- by perpetual payments from illiterate peasants MONEY MEN HAVE ALWAYS DETESTED AND EXPLOITED US PEASANTS

Jordan Margetts
@justnotcricket I agree, his economic history is great, but when it comes to international political history he's a typical flag waving imperialist
Comment from : Jordan Margetts


justnotcricket
One of our better public intellectuals, and a fine historian too but a terrible political theorist
Comment from : justnotcricket


Gomborra
@BeaucoupRed Absolutely right! The frustration now is greater than it used to be People have the choice to know and can actually learn much to make up their own minds, if not through complicated books then via interesting publicly available audiovisual documentaries Yet, they don't It's soon categorized as "conspiracy theory" The ruler in thier high seats laugh and say: "what you know! Great secret are easier to hid They will always be met with public ridicule"
Comment from : Gomborra


theseanze
what's with the intro music?
Comment from : theseanze


Kristi Rohtsalu
Very informative and well presented Yet I think that N Ferguson misses at least one important aspect of securitization: namely that it is a fast track to create debt without creating money I have illustrated this issue in my blog (bloglogicoffinance, article Securitisation -- Fast Way to Create Debt)

@nbm34 I don't like the way the Venus Project is proposed with near religious conviction "We need the Venus Project," as if its these communist robot societies are the only solution Indeed, its a good idea But it doesn't exist In fact, according to Fresco himself, it would take an economic meltdown to implement it
Comment from : philip noll


philip noll
@nbm34 I got it from the video This guy is pretty interesting His facts are pretty accurate, even if he spins it in support of the banksters, he still lets us know that the world is controlled through finance

@0hmyy0utubeusername already then if you stand by that go ahead I have no problem
Comment from : doujin01


OctoberFest
@doujin01 One more quick thing, I don't operate under pessimism of optimism, I operated under probability, it is a more effective way to orient myself I feel There is a much higher probability of corruption under the current system than in the system that I support, therefore I support the option that is more likely to benefit our sustainable existence and the health of our planet
Comment from : OctoberFest


OctoberFest
@doujin01 Doujin I'm not going to go one about this anymore but I will say one last thing, yes money did work before when real scarcity existed however the time of real scarcity is over, now we only have contrived scarcity I want to ask you; what interest is it to resist a change that is obviously for the benefit of society and of our planet? Do you know where your strong allegiance to this system comes from? Answer these questions for yourself though, and think about them, I don't needa reply
Comment from : OctoberFest


doujin01
@0hmyy0utubeusername I just don't get your pessimism with the idea Just remember I not defending it or anything like that, I'm just curious of why you make the assumption that money is only bad? Like I said before, money can be good as well, it is an just a way of "dealing" with the world That all I'm just curious really
Comment from : doujin01


OctoberFest
@doujin01 We don't have a long time especially with the escalating levels of military technology You will see major impacts of the zeitgeist movement within your life certainly, perhaps when the movement grows and becomes a bit more populous you will join in Many people will not support something based on an analysis of the cause but only by a bandwagon mentality, perhaps that is you, I can not say But anyways, if you want to find out more go to the sites I'm quite busy and cant respond more
Comment from : OctoberFest


OctoberFest
@doujin01 Actually no it became an imperative to change away from a monetary system that inherently results in aberrant behavior and even rewards it, when the nuclear weapon entered the arsenals of military men who do not know how to analyze foundational root causes to problems These men see "military solutions"(possibly the most cliche word I have ever heard, military action is the worst failure of being unable to solve a problem) that don't solve anything, and may end us all
Comment from : OctoberFest


doujin01
@0hmyy0utubeusername Actually I do have one thing to say While it is only "inevitable" (But not for along time) I think we should make the most of it until actually appropriate to "remove" it I'm just saying
Comment from : doujin01


doujin01
@0hmyy0utubeusername Well, I have read read the "venus Project" on wikipedia I find the idea/concept fascinating but do you think that going to be easy to remove such an idea as money? Why was it created in the first place? That is what you got to ask before challenging something/anything That all I'm saying I could go on but it just to tiresome in all honesty
Comment from : doujin01


OctoberFest
@doujin01 Just check out more about the the Venus Project, noone over there claims its perfect or anything like that, but we are trying to do scientifically verifiable "good", and anyone can contribute to it The goal is to put the tools for self development so that everyone can have a chance to reach their potential in a self motivated way i hope you will check us out and join the movement
Comment from : OctoberFest


doujin01
@0hmyy0utubeusername Just as I said before, if it can be bad than it can be good
Comment from : doujin01


doujin01
@0hmyy0utubeusername alright then, in all honest the reason why i said that is well put it this way, through out history that there were certain traits/events/moments that happened so "many" times and for so long that it "seems" that "if it happen in the past, it going to happen again" I always believe that if anything can be good or bad or "the middle" And the fact is, "HOW" do you make good? "HOW" do you make it bad? Its the how
Comment from : doujin01


OctoberFest
@doujin01 Also, it is important to be scientific in our pursuit of answers to any problems We should never use language like "no matter what" The history of humanity is a history of nothing but change and I for one am very curious why so many people hold these "no matter what", "will never change" state of minds I know that these state of minds were adopted as a reaction to the environment, however I'd be curious to research exactly how Let's just ask questions and not assert answers
Comment from : OctoberFest


OctoberFest
@doujin01 However in the group where each child had 4 of each of the 4 varieties of toys, no greed nor negative emotional traits were displayed within the children(they have video of this somewhere, check it out) It is the environment of scarcity and the fact that it is possible to benefit by displaying greed and violence so that one may secure resources for themselves However it is proven with children that if they are raised in an environment of abundance they will not display this behavior
Comment from : OctoberFest


OctoberFest
@doujin01 I also hate to say it but I absolutely disagree that greed and desire are some natural attributes, and there is clear evidence against that There was some memorable research done with children in a daycare, they had control groups of children and in each group each child had a different number of toys The group where each child had 4 different toys but only one of each toy, led to some children taking the toys from the other children, leading to and unfair distribution
Comment from : OctoberFest


doujin01
@0hmyy0utubeusername Ok Ok I get what you are saying But you know what? There always going to be greed/desire no matter what
Comment from : doujin01


OctoberFest
@0hmyy0utubeusername Please youtube search the video awakening by tzmsocialevolution Please watch that and it will give you a more clear explanation of the withholding of efficiency and of the willing production shortages when real demand for the product still exists It is not simply ok to consider what products someone needs based on the purchasing power of an individual The money system was acceptable in a world of natural scarcity but we live in a world of scarcity by profit motivation
Comment from : OctoberFest


OctoberFest
@doujin01 The idea that we still live in a world of scarcity is no longer accurate We have the capabilities to produce an abundance, think about it factories operate one shift a day at times, or even postpone production altogether because their product is not selling Food manufactures dispose of "excess" quantities of food to keep the prices higher Scarcity in the world today is man-made, it is not a result of natural limitations That is the difference
Comment from : OctoberFest


doujin01
@0hmyy0utubeusername Well the thing is about money is first of all the 'concept' of money has been with us so god damn long, well its was well the only such thing to work Also about money that if being "rewarded" is given for pollution, negligence, crime, etc I think it can work/reward that other side of the spectrum as well You have to remember that we live and exist in a world of scarcity that the idea money is only logical as well the idea of money might go away So what I think about it
Comment from : doujin01


OctoberFest
You can't solve societies problems operating in intangible ideas such as money, we need to come to an understanding that we are not separate from the universe and stop operating under abstractions, especially horrible ones like money which rewards pollution, negligence, crime, etc I mean honestly you people who support this, are you that stupid that you can't see that if the social organization rewards certain types of behavior then they will occur? do you get all you answers from authority?

Steingrímur Jón Guðjónsson
Just finished reading The Ascent of Money and I have to say it was one of the best books I read this year and in fact one of the better books I've read having to do with economic matters Would highly recommend it to anyone who wishes to deepen his understanding of the history of the modern economy!
Comment from : Steingrímur Jón Guðjónsson


Clouded Journey
@jumba146 When you make a comment like that, you just make YOURSELF sound like an idiot
Comment from : Clouded Journey


RGT88
I think he drives the point home much like Peter Schiff, Marc Faber, Jim Rogers, David Tice, Nassim Taleb, and many others who saw this crash coming This was in fact a consequence of irrationality, but moreso lending standards which GSE Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac completely abolished, low interest rates set by Fed which paved way to ARMs, and Wall Street getting drunk on this party Nevermind complete overreliance on econometric models
Comment from : RGT88


coolgreyoneabby
@TheCameo86 No, He specifically talks about the push to get those who cannot afford mortgages into the market with more complex products that they do not understand Those mortgages were bundled and securitized then sold to far off investors That would clearly fall under lending standards Interest rates were merely the trigger that brought down the house of cards Idiot he is not
Comment from : coolgreyoneabby


StarSeed
The stupidity of the public is shocking When I tried to explain to recent immigrants who were buying houses why the prices could not simply keep going up year after year they thought I was crazy After the crash they thought I was a genius

dvdx87
The music for this is from Apple's Garage Band I can tell because I have made something very similar to this sound hmminteresting

Bhushan
Well he interviewer is certainly a slow speaker very slow speaker apart from that what was noticeable is that Nell has certainly done huge amount of ground work before publishing the book GREAT JOB!!!

Americans love a British accent, that is why this bloke is so npopular there Hes actually not that clever, but dumb yanks lap him up because of his accent [email protected]!
Comment from : Rentaghost76


Rob S
I honestly think that this book/program should be mandatory before you can have any legitimate opinion about economics and finance It's broad and high level, yet very educational for the average person
Comment from : Rob S


Gomborra
I salute your strong mind!! ;-) The only one hear who actually knows something
Comment from : Gomborra


rkendal
It baffles me how no one seems to call it like it is The cause of our current economic woes is your neighbour's inflated lifestyle expectations Oh, and his neighbour too Here's look'n at ya!
Comment from : rkendal


Christian Liberty
you can never get rid of financial bubbles without getting rid of central banks (fed reserve, bank of england, bank of china, bank of canada, etc) When central planners are given more power, they create bigger catastrophes (and then insist that they must be given more power to prevent the problems that they created)
Comment from : Christian Liberty


ungerbn
Ferguson makes some interesting points, such as de-radicalizing the American Left by trying to make as many citizens property/home owners However, despite his clarity and articulate presentation, he massively minimizes how the greed of investment banking and insurance companies have lead to unnecessary bubbles and that they no longer seem to "serve" the greater good of the common man
Comment from : ungerbn


Lauri
my mum bought me this book, im really interested in history, but i got a kind of a crappy grade from my economics course, havent read yet, but hopefully its a nice book that clears up some things

The New Deal stuff didn't work as far as I've gathered More people might have owned homes in 1950 but that was after World War 2which decreased unemployment because more unemployed people were dead due to the war Anyways, this is an awesome vid! =)
Comment from : stealthswimmer


stealthswimmer
To the peoplenot the government I just wanted to make that a point there Some folks believe that government and "the people" are one and the same How do we allow the people to have control over money? Through private institutionssuch as banksbut not a central bank Thus, leaving the control to the market
Comment from : stealthswimmer


stealthswimmer
they don't really "control" us but they do regulate a significant part of daily transactions Ultimately, it's not like they can just do whatever they want
Comment from : stealthswimmer


odiggler
Watch "Zeitgeist" here on youtube, and see through the BS that controls us
Comment from : odiggler


T Akurit
Ferguson is Scottish I think he was being modest
Comment from : T Akurit


Louis Meadows
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs"
Comment from : Louis Meadows


Jenzel Ria
I didn't like the interviewer The Andrew Denton look a like when he's sixty, Harry whats-his-name Also the intro music was awful, and having a blurred churched with a cheap typeset over it, didn't make sense What the hell was all that about? However, interested in buying this book, and seems a good nutshell about itcheers
