Love the simplicity of the videos. Would like to have a pause/rewind function where only want to hear a particular point rather than playing whole video again. Great tool!

M A S T E R ,


This video does a good representation of how a piggy bank works. It fails to mention that is not how most banks work. Banks never lend out their depositors' money. Never ever.

Where did the people get this money from to deposit in the bank? It had to be created from somewhere. It does no answer the creation of a dollar.

A proof that most banks are not piggy banks:

If you were to take all of the debts in your city, or town. All of the Municipal Bonds, the Corporate Bonds, Business Loans, Personal Mortgages, Credit Cards, etc. All the money that is owed is ALWAYS more than the deposits within the bank.

Piggy banks, for the most part, do not exist because they are a backward funding model that disallows the issuance of new financial credit. New credit needs to be issued, just as they need to be canceled, when production is consumed.
