    Economy has become too complex together with Finances, since all is based on SPECULATION. If there were no speculation, which is the same as CORRUPTION, then all would be simple and fast to develop all the countries around the world.

    Hahaha, it takes a math teacher to learn historical economics about the value of money. Go figure.
    He’s teaching fractional reserve lending AND interest on created currency? What university is allowing this man to actually teach REAL economics?

    If anyone is as daft as I am, he got 95% because 20(original silver dollar value) minus 1(new silver dollar value) equals 19 divided by 20(original) = .95 then .95 multiplied by 100 to get the percent change of 95%

    FYI- money multiplier is a fallacy. Banks don't lend reserves :)

    Some much wrong...Fractional Reserve (money multiplier) is imaginary, banks create deposits based on a promise to pay by a willing borrower, banks don't loan money they create deposits. Another economist talking about money who doesn't know how banks work. Economist need to observer the system before creating models and using math that proves an imaginary model.
