  1. And, I suppose, some MMTers will say, coming from the opposite side of the Austrians, that Argentina´s experiment with a completely subservient Central Bank brings no risk of hyperinflation.

  2. I aim to please 🙂

  3. Lorenzo you indeed do!

  4. Marcus: nice one. Just like Zimbabwe perhaps?

  5. At any moment, any nation is one inch away from becoming the Weimar Republic (and Nazism inevitable), or Zimbabwe or Argentina.

    Nations with long records of moderate inflation and prosperity (which includes most Western economies) are anomalies.

  6. Yes Benjamin, that is the mindset encapsulated nicely 🙂
