Marginal utility of an additional dollar of debt continues to collapse. The MMT people never bring any of this up as a constraint on gov't spending or even a problem to correct. $3 and $4 in new IOU's to buy $1 of growth is fake growth. It's enslavement to debt.

Gold has significantly outperformed stocks this century, gaining about 555% versus 79% for the MSCI All-Country World Index of stocks and 146% for the S&P 500 Index.(1) This is a direct result of significantly looser financial conditions, and no constraints on monetary and fiscal policy. From a financial perspective, the global economy is in a much worse place than 20 years ago, and there is no evidence that things are going to improve.
