One thought on “Presentations, reviews et al on the Global Minotaur

  1. I believe debt is the problem. There is no real mountain of savings. Balance sheets do not list debt and savings they list debt and assets. Now one might say assets are savings but to do so one must embrace the ‘moneyness’ of all those new financial instruments. All those MBS’s in 2007 were then savings, until they weren’t. The assets were inflated then they deflated and their moneyness disappeared. Leaving debt backed by a deflated asset.

    So it is still, most of our ‘savings’ are myriad financial instruments backed by far too little good collateral. Their moneyness. their savingness, an illusion. The majority of these assets are debts owed and then the derivatives of these debts. These are not savings they are the illusion of savings
