The 2008 Financial Crisis: Crash Course Economics #12
 
11:25
Today on Crash Course Economics, Adriene and Jacob talk about the 2008 financial crisis and the US Goverment's response to the troubles. So, all this starts with home mortgages, and the use of mortgages as an investment instrument. For years, it seemed like the US housing market would go up and up. Like a bubble or something. It turns out it was a bubble. But not the good kind. And the government response was...interesting. Anyway, why are you reading this? Watch the video!

Economic Policy for the 21st Century
 
01:02:47
Presented by Professor John Quiggin, Australian Laureate Fellow in Economics at the University of Queensland Current discussion of economic policy in Australia is backward looking, dominated by the policy issues of the late 20th century, and in particular the microeconomic reform agenda of the 1980s and 1990s. By contrast, policy problems and opportunities that have arisen in the 21st century, including climate change and the Global Financial Crisis, are barely considered. In this lecture, the implications of these issues for economic analysis will be discussed, and a policy response will be outlined.

Debt Sustainability Analysis in Normal and Crisis Times
 
01:06:08
Speakers: - Cinzia Alcidi (Senior Research Fellow and Head of Economic Policy Unit, CEPS) - Daniel Gros (Director, CEPS) Recording of the online seminar on 17 January 2019. Seminar organised in cooperation with the Center for European Policy Studies (CEPS) More information: http://fbf.eui.eu/event/online-seminar-debt-sustainability-analysis/?instance_id=337 Accurately assessing the sustainability of debt trajectories is crucial to map sovereign vulnerabilities, to ensure financial stability and to reduce decision-makers’ uncertainty. This is valid in normal times – as part of fiscal surveillance exercises that can lead to possible early warning signals – but becomes even more relevant in crisis times – as part of the assessment that precedes the provision of financial support (such as via the Outright Monetary Transactions programme for example). Debt Sustainability Analysis (DSA) is thus subject to the classic mix of rules and discretion In this online seminar, held in cooperation with CEPS, Cinzia Alcidi (Senior Research Fellow and Head of Economic Policy Unit) and Daniel Gros (Director) will guide us through what constitutes state-of-the-art DSA. For this, they will elaborate on the approaches of both the International Monetary Fund and of the European Commission which they find to be complementary rather than alternative in nature. Alcidi and Gros’ presentation will include a deep-dive into two recent illustrative cases: Greece and Italy and will provide recommendations

Monetary and Fiscal Policy: Crash Course Government and Politics #48
 
09:19
Today, Craig is going to dive into the controversy of monetary and fiscal policy. Monetary and fiscal policy are ways the government, and most notably the Federal Reserve, influences the economy - for better or for worse. So we’re going to start by looking at monetary policy, and specifically how the Federal Reserve uses interests rates as a means of controlling (or at least attempting to control) inflation. We’ll then move onto fiscal policy - that is the government’s use of taxation to raise and spend money. It’s all, well, pretty controversial, but as it seems Americans hate taxes the most, monetary policy is most often used - meaning that the Federal Reserve plays a hugely significant role in steering the U.S. economy.

Deficits & Debts: Crash Course Economics #9
 
07:31
What is debt? What is a deficit? And do these things have different outcomes for individuals and nations? Adriene and Jacob answer all these questions and more on this week's Crash Course Econ. Deficit and debt are easy to misunderstand, but luckily, they're also pretty easy to understand. This week we'll explain what deficit and debt are, and talk about what the sources of deficit and debt are for the US Government. Also, we'll take a very special trip to Cliffordonia to try and understand these concepts and get a look at what a colonial-era space program might have looked like. Crash Course is on Patreon!

What Caused the '08 Financial Crisis: Free Markets or Government?
 
01:18:07
Was the 2008 financial crisis caused by market distortions or market failure?

It featured John Allison, former CEO of BB&T Bank and former CEO and president of the Cato Institute, and Mark Zandi, the chief economist of Moody's Analytics. Allison argued that market distortions led to the financial crisis, and Zandi attributed the crisis to market failure. Soho Forum Director Gene Epstein moderated. It was an Oxford-style debate, in which the audience votes on the resolution at the beginning and end of the event, and the side that gains the most ground is victorious. Allison prevailed by convincing about 10 percent of audience members to change their minds. Today Allison is an executive in residence at the Wake Forest School of Business. He's author of The Financial Crisis and the Free Market Cure: Why Pure Capitalism is the World Economy's Only Hope (McGraw-Hill, 2012). Zandi is the author of Financial Shock: A 360º Look at the Subprime Mortgage Implosion, and How to Avoid the Next Financial Crisis.

All Of The Economic Momentum Is Heading To Economic Collapse 2019 Stock Market CRASH!
 
10:42
Shocking video of the imminent economic collapse and the next Great Depression. Unfortunately, we have witnessed a dramatic shift in recent months, and we just got some more really bad economic numbers.  Thanks to those bad numbers and an increasing amount of anxiety about the trade war, the Dow Jones Industrial Average crashed 900 points last week.  That means that we are on pace to potentially see the Dow crashing for a sixth week in a row, and that is something that hasn’t happened since the last economic crisis and stock market crash. But right now investors are far more spooked about what is going on in the bond market.  According to Mish Shedlock, we haven’t seen this many yield curve inversions “since the start of the last economic collapse”… On Friday, US Treasury yields plunged at the mid to long end of the curve providing the most inversions since the start of the Great Recession. Recent data points suggest US earnings and economic risk is greater than most investors may think,” wrote Michael Wilson, the firm’s chief U.S. equity strategist.This is the biggest recession warning since 2007. In so many ways, what we are witnessing at this moment is very reminiscent of the conditions that prevailed just prior to the last financial collapse. Back then, the economic numbers were definitely starting to slide, but most Americans didn’t think that we were heading toward the next major stock market crash and economic meltdown.  But those that understood what was happening were sounding the alarm, and the same thing is happening today. A resolution to our trade war with China would be a huge economic boost in the short-term, but that is not likely to happen for the foreseeable future.  In fact, on Monday President Trump stated that he is “not ready” to make a deal with China. And the Chinese are clearly digging in as well.  The chief editor of the Global Times, Hu Xijin, has a very close relationship with top Chinese officials, and he just warned that China “is seriously considering restricting rare earth exports” to the United States. A deteriorating relationship with China is part of the scenario that we have been anticipating, and events are definitely starting to accelerate now. For most Americans, however, there is no reason to be concerned.  Most of us simply trust that our leaders in Washington have things under control and that everything will work out just fine somehow. But if we do plunge into another deep economic crisis, many Americans will be in enormous trouble right away.  Just like last time around, most Americans are living on the edge financially. And just like last time around, millions of Americans will be completely blind-sided by an economic train wreck that they didn’t see coming. America is headed for a day of reckoning, and author Michael Snyder is sounding the alarm.  His novel about the future of America entitled "The Beginning Of The End" and his best-selling book about the end times entitled "The Rapture Verdict" are both available on Amazon.com.

46:41
The Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis (http://www.newschool.edu/scepa) hosts three New School economists to discuss the economic fallout of the government shut down. Professors Teresa Ghilarducci, Rick McGahey and Christian Proaño discuss the causes of the shutdown, the economic implications of increasing or not increasing the debt ceiling, and what will happen if an agreement is not reached by the deadline of October 17. The event ends with an audience Q&A. Department of Economics | http://www.newschool.edu/nssr/economics The government is closed. Federal workers aren't getting paid. Markets are down and Wall Street lobbyists are flooding Capitol Hill in desperation. Some members of Congress are willing to see the United States default on our debt for the first time in our history. Is this just political theater or are there larger economic consequences to this new normal of extreme political brinkmanship?

Global Risks for Low-Income Countries:  Views on the IMF Perspective
 
01:47:05
Most low-income countries (LICs) recovered swiftly from the 2008-9 global crisis and have grown strongly since early 2010. But progress in rebuilding macroeconomic buffers has been slow, and the LICs are now less well prepared to deal with external shocks than they were before the crisis. At a time when the risks to the global outlook are intensifying, a new IMF study finds that many LICs would struggle to cope with a renewed global downturn. In a second report, the IMF and World Bank explore the role contingent financial instruments—such as commodity hedging, contingent debt, and insurance—could play to help LICs manage global volatility. IMF staff will present the key findings of these studies, highlighting the policy implications for LICs and the international community, with comments by expert discussants to follow.
REDEFINING GROWTH For The 21st Century | Global Financial Forum | Dubai
 
37:32
Martin Wolf Chief Economics Commentator Financial Times Overview: Martin Wolf forecast that while the world economy will grow reasonably rapidly in the 21st century, it will probably not grow as quickly and, crucially, not in the same way as in the second half of the 20th and early part of the 21st Century. He focused his remarks on three major themes – secular trends, the legacy of the financial crisis of 10 years ago, and the outlook for the future. Highlighting the transformative shift in relative economic power underway from developed to developing nations, particularly in Asia and China, he explored the implications for the incomes of the poorest, richest and the squeezed middle classes. He touched on how productivity, innovation and efficiency have slowed dramatically from the highs of the mid-20th century, and he predicted a very sizable climate disruption in the middle part of this century. On the legacy of the recent global financial crisis, Martin noted that the great underlying trade globalisation story is definitely over, and that trade growth across the globe has not returned to pre-crisis levels. Additionally, he forecast the continuation of the previously unprecedented zero interest rate environment of the past 10 years as policy makers across the world seek to manage the massive and shifting debt overhang of mature economies, against a backdrop of rising inflationary pressures, stagnant or falling incomes, and growing populism. The impact of the global financial crisis on and the dilemmas facing a slowing China were also addressed, as US led trade tensions threaten confidence and the prospects for much needed investment-led private sector growth. In concluding Martin shared his expert analysis on the outlook for the coming decades suggesting that trade tensions, changing geo-political dynamics between the world’s superpowers, and rising debt levels, make the future look fragile. Demand in the next 30 years will be driven by Africa, the Middle East and Asia, as Europe shrinks. Annual growth over the next 20 years is expected at 3% driven largely by Asia. By 2050, while the US and developed economies will still be the richest, the prediction is that East and South Asia will be the world’s economic centre. #GFF2019 #GlobalFinancialForum #Dubai

Sayuri Shirai - Unconventional Monetary Policy
 
50:03
About the Speech: Since the global financial crisis, major central banks, such as the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve, have adopted unconventional monetary policies in a bid to increase inflation and boost sluggish economic growth. In her address, Dr Shirai examined some of these unconventional policies, which have included asset purchases and negative interest rates. She argued that while central banks are committed to achieving price stability, they increasingly need to look at the issue of financial instability. Dr Shirai also provided her assessment of other unconventional monetary policies that have yet to be utilised by major central banks, in particular the concept of ‘helicopter money’. About the Speaker: Dr Sayuri Shirai is a Professor at Keio University in Tokyo and a Visiting Scholar at the Asian Development Bank Institute. Dr Shirai was a Member of the Policy Board of the Bank of Japan from April 2011 to March 2016. She supported the Bank of Japan’s Quantitative and Qualitative Monetary Easing programme in 2013 and its subsequent expansion in 2014, however she voted against the negative interest rate policy introduced in January 2016. Prior to joining the Bank of Japan, she was a Professor of Economics at Keio University and she also taught at Sciences Po in Paris between 2007 and 2008. She is the author of numerous articles in professional journals and has published eleven books on topics including China’s exchange rate system, Japan’s macroeconomic policy and the European debt crisis. She is currently writing a book in English about the Bank of Japan’s monetary policy.

In a challenge to conventional views on modern monetary and fiscal policy, Professor Bill Mitchell of Newcastle University in Australia has emerged as one of the foremost exponents of Modern Monetary Theory (MMT), a heterodox challenge to the prevailing paradigms which dominate how mainstream economics is taught and economic policy implemented. In his works, and the interview below, Mitchell presents a coherent analysis of how money is created, how it functions in global exchange rate regimes, and how the mystification of the nature of money has constrained governments, and prevented states from acting in the public interest.

via dandelionsalad.wordpress.com and with permission from Richard C. Cook Part Three of Six Parts: Credit As A Public Utility: The Solution to the Economic Crisis "The Collapse of the Financial System" Written and Produced by Richard C. Cook Summary: The collapse we are seeing today began in the financial system, not the producing economy. The crisis started with the housing bubble which the Federal Reserve created by cutting interest rates and then brought own by raising them. The trigger of the 2008 bank meltdown was refusal by European banks to purchase any more "toxic" U.S. debt based on mortgages and sold as securities. Now, with the decline in equity values, the burden of debt in our economy has grown even larger. Thus a renewal of bank lending will not solve the problem, while the economic stimulus program of the Obama administration is likewise insufficient to restore economic health. Richard C. Cook is a former U.S Treasury analyst who also worked in the Carter White House and for NASA and writes on public policy issues. His new book is We Hold These Truths: The Hope of Monetary Reform (Tendril Press 2009). His website is www.richardccook.com.

Measuring Australia’s Digital Trade - Dr Md Shahiduzzaman, QUT Chair in Digital Economy
 
26:42
The Future of Trade Presented by QUT Faculty of Law Intellectual Property and Innovation Law Research Program, QUT Institute for Future Environments, and QUT Chair in Digital Economy Wednesday, 10 April 2019 8:30am to 5:00pm The Future of Australia’s Digital Trade: Trends and Measurement Issues Dr Md Shahiduzzaman, Research Fellow, QUT Chair in Digital Economy Abstract In October 2017, digital technology company Clipchamp received the Premier of Queensland's Export Award. Clipchamp provides a patent-protected in-browser video-production technology stack, which has been sold to international brands, such as Snapchat, McDonald's, Nike, ESPN, New York Times, the Royal Household, Google, Volvo and many more. With more than 4.3 million registered users, 95% of Clipchamp customers are coming from outside Australia. While we celebrate digital exporters, little information on digital trade currently exists, and we fail at measuring the trade volumes accurately. It is expected that by 2025 Australia's trade value chain will be mostly digital. How do we capture the values of digital trade? What are Australia's present trends and future prospects of digital exports? These questions have significant implications to policy, such as market access, trade facilitation and skills development. In this study, we review the measurement and patterns of Australia's digital trade, information gaps and their implications to the policy. Biography Dr Md Shahiduzzaman is a productivity analyst and researcher in digital economy at the Chair in Digital Economy, Queensland University of Technology (QUT). He has been actively researching on the impacts of technology to economy, industries and fast-growth small-to-medium enterprises for long. Dr Shahid has published +50 papers in the areas of economic growth, productivity and digital economy – many of these published in leading international journals such as International Journal of Productivity and Performance Management, Telecommunications Policy, Economic Analysis and Policy, Economic Change and Restructuring, Journal of Rural Studies, Energy Economics, Global Environmental Change and so forth.

Aula 3 | Modern Money Theory | Prof L. Randall Wray

LECTURE 3 – MODERN MONEY THEORY (Institute of Economics, Campinas, Unicamp, August 9th, 2018) In this lecture, that is the third of the Course of Modern Money Theory, Professor L. Randall Wray goes in detail into Modern Money Theory, and deals with the main criticisms to this approach. His starting point is the idea of Tax Driven Money, meaning that government spends first, and then collects taxes. Given that, he goes in detail about monetary and fiscal policy and how the Treasuries and Central Banks operate in modern economies. Taking that, he faces the question: which are the constraints to the functioning of modern economies? Bibliografia: Goodhart, C.

The Malcolm Wiener Lecture in International Political Economy, Delivered by Jean-Claude Trichet
 
01:18:44
The Malcolm Wiener Lecture in International Political Economy featured former president of the European Central Bank, Jean-Claude Trichet. Mr. Trichet focused his talk on the economic recessions--particularly in Europe--and analyzed the strategies and approaches to fixing the economic crisis. Most notably, he discussed how the strategies used were far beyond the textbook, and as such, required careful consideration of repercussions. Overall, Mr. Trichet conveyed the incredible complexity of the problem and the vast amount of work and analysis need to pursue solutions. Part of Mr. Trichet's larger message though, was that the recent economic crises in the U.S and Europe were and eventual part of a larger global pattern of recessions. These recessions are hard lessons for countries, but ultimately will result in stronger, more stable economies. Harvard University President Emeritus Lawrence Summers moderated the lively question and answer session. March 22, 2011

Fictitious Capital in the 21st Century | Dr Cédric Durand |  SOAS University of London
 
01:40:51
"Fictitious Capital in the 21st Century" was a seminar given by Dr Cédric Durand (University of Paris 13 and EHESS, France) at the Department of Development Studies, SOAS University of London on 5 February 2019. Find out more at http://bit.ly/2V57DKM Ten years after the great financial crisis we are still living under financial hegemony. The social and political wounds of the crash are far from being repaired. However, at institutional and structural levels most of the features of financial power are still in place and, arguably, even reinforced. How can we explain this resilience of financialisation? What are the socioeconomic implications? This talk will examine these issues in light of Marx’s concept of fictitious capital and more recent research it has inspired. After presenting the explanatory power of this concept, the notion of financial hegemony will be explored and linked to the features of the 2008 crisis. The analysis then proposes a critical appraisal of crisis management policies implemented after the crash and its European aftershock. It will focus on the socioeconomic content of the very idea of financial stability, which is the cornerstone of contemporary macroeconomic policies. Cédric Durand is an economist and associate professor at Paris 13 University. He teaches development theories at the EHESS and is on the scientific board of the MSH Paris Nord. Working within the tradition of Marxist and French Regulationist Political Economy, he studies globalisation, financialisation and contemporary mutations of capitalism. He recently published Fictitious Capital (Verso, 2017) and is on the editorial boards of the Revue d’économie industrielle and the online journal Contretemps. Organiser: Dr Feyzi Ismail
Fiscal Space of Korea: Implications for Debt Management and Fiscal Policy
 
03:21
[Go to related Report] http://goo.gl/NdbXid There are growing concerns in Korea over the continued increase in the government debt ratio. At the same time, there are also opinions claiming that an expansion is necessary in response to the sluggish economy due to the current ample fiscal space. Fiscal space refers to the gap between the current debt level and debt limit, which means the maximum increase in government debt that can be repaid with tax revenue. If the size of debt exceeds this level, a sovereign default may be triggered. The IMF estimates Korea’s fiscal space to be 203% of GDP and Moody’s 241%, categorizing it as a fiscally sound country with Norway and Australia. KDI estimated the current level of fiscal space and economic burden of a rapid debt expansion up to the fiscal space. The results of the analysis reveal that Korea’s fiscal space is mainly obtained through hikes in the labor income tax, and currently marks 225% of GDP. If government debt was to also increase by 225% of GDP, a rate hike of 25%p in the labor income tax would be required. This, in turn, would reduce total production, consumption and investment by over 20%. These findings imply that even if fiscal space is of considerable size, it may be excessively costly to actually reach such a debt ratio. Furthermore, fiscal space may contract on sluggish economic growth or increasing social security expenditure due to population aging. For example, fiscal space would fall to 179% of GDP on a 2%p fall in the economic growth rate. If government transfer payments increase 1.5 fold of the current level, fiscal space would decline to 60% of GDP. If both occur simultaneously, fiscal space falls to 40%. Indeed, such risk factors could diminish Korea’s future fiscal space and a government debt of such a size could place a heavy burden on the national economy, so, the management of government debt should be continually examined The primary operational deficit expanded from 2012 to 2015 then reduced in 2016, implying that government debt management has started to improve. In the mid-term, debt management efforts will become stronger until 2019, but weaken again thereafter. [Interview] It is desirable to maintain the efforts to manage government debt while carefully responding to the mid- to long-term fiscal demand. Fiscal expansion should be executed if necessary, but the size of expansion should be carefully decided considering the economic costs of increasing government debt and the fiscal risks contracting the future fiscal space. Meanwhile, it is necessary to reduce government debt when the growth rate of the tax revenue is relatively high in order to reduce the costs related with government debt in the medium to long run.
