  9. How can a country fend of economic collapse if our money is based off of trust, and a rising population means more money must be printed?

    In the United States, the population is rising, this means that without the printing of more money, there will be the same amount of money for a greater amount of people, meaning it will make each dollar more valuable. Yet we print money that really on has a value because we give it one (it is simply paper after all). Printing off more money also leads the the devaluation of it as well (the wheelbarrow story in Germany). How is it that we stay this from happening?

  10. Why Are Negative Interest Rates A Bad Thing?

    While nobody wants skyrocketing inflation, Economists seem to agree that mild inflation is acceptable. However, there also seems to be a near universal belief that even mild deflation is a horrible phenomenon. I can't grasp why this is the case, other than the psychological effects of "self-fulfilling prophecy". If dollars are worth slightly more today then they are a month from now, won't that trigger demand/consumption? Won't that increased demand reduce unemployment and increase businesses spending/short-term investment? Please help me understand where I have gone wrong.

  11. What happens to investments when a currency collapses?

    Say the US dollar collapses. There is massive runaway inflation. My mortgage is still $xxx,xxxx. What does my employer pay me? How? Can I pay off my house now worth a couple ounces of gold converted to inflated US dollars? Did the bank just lose huge on their bet with me and millions of other homes for which they loaned money? What other factors should I consider?

  12. Build a Discussion Area at the bottom of each video.

    It would really help to have a section where we can ask questions about what we do not understand and share our suggestions and views at the end of each video.

  14. Why no resource in history has never been consumed to exhaustion

    If a man spent his entire pay check on beer, there would still be beer for sale.
    If he sold everything he had and spent it on beer, there would still be beer for sale.
    If Bill Gates sold everything he had and spent it on beer, there would still be beer for sale.
    If all of the richest people sold everything and spent it on beer, there would still be beer for sale.
    No matter how much is spent on beer, there would STILL be beer for sale.
    Why?

  16. How do we reconcile Ice-Age psychology (e.g. envy and spite to control IPD) with rational economics?

    In small groups, where cooperation was the iterated prisoners' dilemma, it was quite rational to act irrationally, declining unequal sharing for example. See the allocate / veto game, where disgust at "unfairness" makes one side turn down free money.
    Those instincts run deep. They drive the politics of envy and tribal resentment.
    But to prosper we must embrace rational economics, and learn to live with unequally-rich, as superior to equally poor.

  19. Why isn't healthcare in America treated as a public good?

    All other developed nations have universal health care, paid for through a variety of methods. I understand the accident of history that caused the healthcare system to become essentially a bargaining chip for the unions, but now we have so fewer unions. So why do Americans put up with such a dysfunctional system, now rapid moving towards "cost sharing" which will only serve to bankrupt more and more individuals?
