Hyperinflation in Germany, 1919-1923

Nathan Lewis
Recently, I have been getting a number of inquiries about hyperinflation in Germany in the early 1920s. Mostly, this centers on the final collapse in 1923. But, to my mind, that is the least interesting part of the process. “Hyperinflation” is actually...

Turning to Keynes in this Crisis Will Only Make Things Worse

Frank Shostak
In the New York Times on September 8, 2020, Paul Krugman wrote that The CARES Act, enacted in March, gave the unemployed an extra $600 a week in benefits. This supplement played a crucial role in limiting extreme hardship; poverty may even have gone do...

How Countries Get Out Of Crisis

Nathan Lewis
Today, there is a lot of talk that the U.S. is entering a crisis phase. This is right in line — both in character and timing — with the thesis presented 23 years ago by William Strauss and Neil Howe in The Fourth Turning (1997). But, today we will talk...

Modern Monetary Theory Simplified

Nathan Lewis
I have written a couple of items about “modern monetary theory,” but I wanted to make things somewhat simpler. Basically, most of the claims of “modern monetary theory” are true; and, we are already doing them. We’ve been doing them for the last fifty ...

Want to Really Cut Taxes? Cut Government Spending.

Frank Shostak
New government spending projects amount to little more than government squandering wealth. The fact that the private sector does not undertake these projects indicates that they are of low priority to individuals. The implementation of these projects w...

George F. Smith
Signs are emerging around the country directing people into churches and schools where they can cast votes for others who will represent them in the state apparatus.Only a few people actually do this. The State in its various forms (local, state, and ...
