    I think you are right that it’s not talked about because nobody really
    understands. Sure, a few can regurgitate some buzz words and headlines but
    why would they understand? You are either inside or outside as they say and
    there are only a handful of people in the world who truly know what the
    products are, what they are for, who holds them and why.

    We could save this for our discussion live but two things – one with regard
    to LTCM. Many don’t know that the same principals have been successfully
    running the exact same strategy ever since. There was never anything wrong
    with the strategy. It’s just a now run of the mill market neutral vol based
    spreading program. But again, it wasn’t reckless trading or even position
    size relative to equity that wrecked it out. It was the liquidity vacuum
    caused by too few participants. Russian fixed income specifically in that
    case. As MBSs and CDOs/swaps were in the 2008 case. Doesn’t matter what the
    specific culprit is.

    And while I think it’s great that there is someone like you bringing this
    stuff to light for the laypersons (knowledge is power), the next level
    which I’ve yet to see anyone talk about is WHY the economy is laden/now
    structurally supported by these products. It’s shallow thinking and a cop
    out by those who use the old, “greedy banker twisting his moustache
    hatching a plan to suck the marrow out of the world” dramatic bullshit.
    Seems plausible enough but it’s much more sinister than that because it’s
    NOT anything that malicious. These products and their pervasiveness are a
    symptom of the fatal flaw that is the constant growth Keynesian economic
    model. T1 banks just happen to be at the apex of that triangle. Trying to
    fit ten pounds of shit in a five pound bag. News flash. You can’t get blood
    from a turnip, but that’s literally what is required for our very survival
    these days. “Enough” doesn’t exist so The Fed, the banks, etc are just
    constantly seeking creative ways to make “enough” appear out of thin air.
    The music is stopping and there aren’t anywhere near enough chairs.

    Great thoughts Josh, sounds like we are being held financial prisoners.
    Some good could have come out of 2008, if they allowed some of the bigger
    players to be broken up in to smaller pieces. Instead, they went the other
    way, and allowed them to become even bigger.

    I don’t understand money at all I just like to listen.But I will say I only
    know of one person who owns stock and its for CAT equipment.I wanted to buy
    some and also for SILK milk but when I looked into it,it looked like a
    trick to me,like I was paying fees for what?How come I can’t just buy
    stocks myself.I don’t understand.And a close friend told me that only the
    brokers make money and the entire “game” is rigged,that no stock owners
    ever see a profit.How can this be true.I thought a stock was a share,a tiny
    bit of the entire company.Can you make a stocks for dummies video
    please.And during the 9th grade our history teacher had us follow stocks
    out of the newspaper,penny stocks or something,he implied all we needed was
    a newspaper and a pocket full of change ,and babbled about some Ivy league
    game called”ghetto” Where you get dropped off in the bad part of NYC with 1
    quarter in your pocket and you have to make it home.And whoever does the
    best wins.He made a board game and had us play it.Was he just nuts.or is
    there a secret rich society?

    I like these videos, Thank You. Even though I don’t know enough on the
    subject, I have always felt that if I could get to where I am completely
    debt free but own some really nice assets that this would take me out of
    the “system” that might crash one day. Also, re the debt clock and the
    part that shows each persons “Part” of that debt…I want to “Opt out” of
    that….how? Being personally debt free and have no investments exposed to
    a possible “bail IN”…?

    Who owns stocks?? Where do you hang brah? Outside of the hood everyone owns
    stocks.

    I agree though; recently if anyone’s come to me asking what they should
    buy, I’ve just said, pay down your debt first.

    Josh, if deflation is your concern, is there any currency to view as
    ‘superior,’ or what hard assets would one benefit most from? Since it has
    never happened, I guess that’s a pretty open ended question.

  7. Jon Scott

    Josh, I’ve never always been a fan of your videos but this has been one of
    the best I’ve seen from you, or from anyone in quite some time. You are
    saying what many people probably think, but are too afraid to admit. As far
    as I can see, the Dollar will rise against all other currencies and we will
    see the Dow at a minimum of 20,000 next year. Keep it up. Great video.

  8. CarouselExperiment

    Good video. But I can honestly say, make more of them. I feel like I’m
    being deprived of your knowledge. Keep the vids coming lol

    I’m still blaming my grandmother for the 2008 stock market collapse for
    stuffing her mattress.

    Josh , I like your channel but how come you hardly ever call out this clown
    GregM’s misinformation? I wish more learned persons such as yourself would
    call this clown out. but you don’t have to name call .

    I like the CapitalRev channel, and he discusses real estate, too. Good
    comments about “who owns stocks.” I’ve gone ahead and bought some directly
    and kept the certificates, but I think I’m the only person (my age, anyway)
    I know who did that. (They come with your name on them here in France.)
    Most people I’m aware of in the US or France are frustrated by low bank
    account yields, I know a FEW in the US who buy strange government
    securities, and a few who have “brokerage accounts.” (That’s a sure way to
    lose out!) If I mention that I’ve lost money or had hassles investing in
    “paper PMs,” having a boring savings account (bank failed), having a
    “brokerage account” (several times, biggest losses with E.F. Hutton), et c.
    I get the equivalent of the Crystal Gaze. They just figure it was my bad
    luck, or “that was then,” or that “insurance” covered me. When I tell them
    it took years to get the money back (and I didn’t always) or I had to
    litigate (that is a huge gamble and if you lose you’ve lost big time) they
    don’t think it could apply to them. Peter Young did a clip recently about
    how he got ripped off selling a gold krugerand in Thailand. (But he also
    has a clip up of how selling one in Japan was fine.) Good clip, and I’d
    tend to agree with you. Uprated.

    Hey Josh, unrelated comment. I heard you say on an older video that you
    wanted to learn to surf. I live in southern cali and love surfing. You need
    to find some time to come visit. I could teach you to surf if you could
    share some of your knowledge about investing. Fall is the my fav time of
    year around here plus we can do other stuff like water ski, get a beer and
    shoot the sheet or take a quick drive to mex to get some tacos. nice golf
    courses as well
