    In “Occupying Chairlifts” a simple rule tweak on inheritance ends up changing the direction and purpose of modern human life! Here’s a fair way to transition forward to where we’re rewarded for cooperating and creating instead of competing and conquering.
    It’s something specific we can demand. If this isnt the best answer, at least we’re thinking about what might be. Are we really just this close to having it work right?
    Oh yeah, it’s a Ski movie! “Occupying Chairlifts” on Youtube!

    Question for Khan: Let’s say a fictional country would make it a constitutional law that the government is not allowed to borrow money for > 0% interest anymore.. ever… What scenario’s are most likely during…:
    - the period in which they are paying off all the debt
    - the longer term after they have paid off the debt and the economy is used to the new situation.
    What kind of effects would such a policy have?

    I guess you and I share a huge difference of opinion about who holds the power at the Fed.

    Pls don’t talk down to me, by virtue of the fact its antagonistic. Am I aware of Benjamin Shalom Bernanke being the chairmen of the Federal Reserve System? Yes I am. Is he a member of the economic interests the ACTUALLY OWN THIS PRIVATE BANKING CARTEL? I don’t believe so, admittedly speculative ….again the Amerikan body politic isn’t privy to the stockholders of this institution; I can assure u though a Rothschilds name or two is amongst the personages.

    The members of the Federal Reserve is not a secret. Ever heard of Ben Bernanke?

    How does monetary policy affects the growth of GDP in a country?

    How can you have a dislike on an educational video?

    Sorry, I support some of his policies and his views but I think his economic policies are a little too radical for a modern day economy.

    Inflation does not cause depressions, over-saving does – when the “savers” get all of our interest, all the monopoly profit, all the drug money, all the gold sales money and “save” it – these is less money going to consumption which kills domestic production of consumption goods. This can cause deflationary depression even without new spending (inflation) – simply by people saving more – by taking from wage earning consumers and giving to non-consuming parasite savers – Paste: -n0VgsxXICg

    Only legal tender is silver and gold and the government is printing money which is unconstitutional.

    I have been learning from books, internet videos and my own critical thinking lately, not in college. In my classes I sit there feeling uncomfortable, people are talking, I have to pay for it, etc. This is amazing, I have been doing my own research and have just been searching for what I wanted to learn but to have this all organized for me and done already it has made things much easier. Thank you so much. I have subscribed about 10 times, I keep getting unsubscribed. Why?

    Wowzers5…. The Fed profits come from the interest the government pays on the ton of US bonds and Treasuries that the Fed holds… And yes, the Fed is VERY profitable…

    The only problem with this video is that the supply of money in normally shown as a vertical line since it is 100% controlled be the Fed. Also, the horizontal axis should be “Quantity of Money” not “supply of money.”
    Interesting tie-in to fiscal policy. I’m going to be checking additional videos from Khan Academy and be assigning them to my classes. I suggest also Jason Welker’s work and that of Steve Reff (“Reffonomics”), both are excellent and designed specifically for AP Econ.

    Assumption made Fed controls buying/selling securities because of large size of transactions.

    Unfortunately, this assumption resulted in the “credit crisis of ’08″. A review of Fed. Res. Bulletin HR4.1 starting Mar. 18, 2008 and ending in mid June will show a huge withdrawal of funds from the banks to the Fed. For the 1st time, the private/institutional sector controlled the money supply by buying T Bills, shifting funds from the banking system to the Fed – causing banks restrict lending.
