The Fiat Solution: the only equilibrium interest rate for fiat economies is zero.

The Fiat Solution

My essential claim is that an economy using fiat money can only find a stable equilibrium at short term rates at or near zero, and that the last 40 or so years have been the period during which the economy, led by the markets – not the monetary authorities – has moved itself in that direction from the unstable starting point (a fiat regime with significantly high nominal interest rates). I call this hypothetical zero interest rate equilibrium for fiat money economies the fiat solution.

Cheers awesome work being done here.

what if it was all just a big Bubble?

One of the things that many people go through their entire lives without ever realizing is that conditions haven’t always been the way they remember them to be. Due to the length of a typical lifetime and the number of those years that individuals are productive, it’s reasonable to think that someone in their mid-60s could retire today and look back at the last 40 years only to conclude that what they just experienced was normal.

But, what if the last 40 years were anything but normal?

How To Manage US Fiat Money Creation Bank System

In the early 1970s President Nixon took the American dollar off the Gold Standard. In place of the gold standard, we have money that floats on the world currency markets, where its exchange value is determined.  This is fiat money. 

The word fiat means, “let it happen” in the Italian langue.  A government can create fiat money simply by decreeing that the money is legal tender for all debts, public and private as written on our Federal Reserve notes. (Paper money)

Entering the Greatest Depression in history: more bubbles waiting to burst

While there is much talk of a recovery on the horizon, commentators are forgetting some crucial aspects of the financial crisis. The crisis is not simply composed of one bubble, the housing real estate bubble, which has already burst. The crisis has many bubbles, all of which dwarf the housing bubble burst of 2008. Indicators show that the next possible burst is the commercial real estate bubble.
