View Full Version : Myth-Busters: Trump's Plan To Extend The Debt Bubble

This week, the Trump Administration issued a 150-page report on banking regulations. If Trump gets his way, as much as $2 trillion in funds will be "unlocked" for banks to lend out. Banks were forced to "lock" those funds away after the last financial crisis. Is this how banking is supposed to work? By the dictates of central planners? And what will $2 trillion in loans to an already deeply indebted American public produce?

The debt bubble will always need to be expanded as so long as we have a fractional fiat currency and a Central Bank in control of the issue of it, with interest. The interest is really what causes the bubble to need to be ever expanded.
