Guest: Adam Cramer is the founding Executive Director and present CEO of Outdoor Alliance, a national coalition of outdoor recreation advocacy groups that has breathed new life into the conservation movement by harnessing the outdoor community's passion for place and combining it with a modern approach to organizing and digital engagement. During his time as CEO, Adam has brought new sensibilities to conservation work that have resulted in hundreds of thousands more acres of protected landscapes, improved management for outdoor recreation, and thousands of outdoor enthusiasts awakened to conservation and advocacy work. He is an avid whitewater kayaker and mountain biker, but is always on the lookout for a good skatepark. Adam lives in Maryland with his wife and two kids   Show notes: On Friday, August 12, 2022, Congress passed the largest ever climate package in the Inflation Reduction Act, an absolute landmark piece of legislation. Channel Mastery has never done an episode on any sort of legislation before today; but know that this show was prioritized. Why? Because of the landmark impact that the IRA is destined to have on our businesses. What's more, this is a far-reaching (both in scope and timeframe) bill that will create new awareness among our consumers – the outdoor recreation enthusiast. Channel Mastery is 100-percent about understanding our brand fans and target consumers and this bill will ‘train' them to expect more responsible businesses and brand practices concerning climate mitigation going forward.    The bill is sweeping and complex, and we've procured the perfect guide for our episode today in Adam Cramer, the CEO of the Outdoor Alliance, the only non-profit organization in the U.S. that unites the voices of outdoor enthusiasts to conserve public lands and ensure those lands are managed in a way that embraces the human-powered experience. The Outdoor Alliance connects conservation with climate, which positions Adam's perspective as critical to you, Channel Mastery's executive audience of outdoor rec business leaders. The Outdoor Alliance is a coalition of national advocacy organizations that includes American Whitewater, American Canoe Association, Access Fund, International Mountain Bicycling Association, Winter Wildlands Alliance, the Mountaineers, the American Alpine Club, the Mazamas, the Colorado Mountain Club, and the Surfrider Foundation.    The Inflation Reduction Act will be on President Biden's desk by the time you listen to this show, but the interview you're about to hear in episode 192 is evergreen in that it underscores a tipping point moment in climate and conservation. Paul Krugman, Opinion Columnist with The New York Times, in his piece “Did Democrats just Save Civilization?” wrote: “This is a very big deal. The act isn't, by itself, enough to avert climate disaster. But it is a huge step in the right direction and sets the stage for more action in the years ahead. It will catalyze progress in green technology; its economic benefits will make passing additional legislation easier; it gives the United States the credibility it needs to lead a global effort to limit greenhouse gas emissions.” Senator John Hickenlooper (D) Colorado, summed up the bill in his newsletter by describing it as the largest climate rescue investment by any country ever.    The Outdoor Alliance website has informative summary blog posts about the IRA, outlining how the $373 billion funding package will mitigate climate change through investments that will accelerate our transition to clean energy. The bill also includes billions of dollars for wildfire mitigation, forest management, and conservation.    While this hard-fought legislative win most certainly benefits humanity as a whole, it's crucial to highlight what this means to the business of outdoor recreation and how we, as corporate citizens, have an opportunity and responsibility to step up and heap on awareness and visibility of what's going to emerge from this game-changing legislation. Whether it's sharing the details and impact of the IRA on the health of the planet and the places we cherish as outdoor recreationalists with our internal teams or on how your brand and reach can further the traction on climate change mitigation, the time to elevate this to our important stakeholders in our outdoor rec businesses is now.    Also, note that consumers will vote with their dollars more than ever before as the road to doing the right thing will be highlighted in the coming months and years, thanks to the IRA.    The Channel Mastery podcast is presented by Verde Brand Communications and Life Time, Inc., owner of the Sea Otter Classic and producer of the Sea Otter Classic Summit outdoor recreation executive gathering, taking place April 18-20, 2023, in Monterey, Calif.  Links: Show sponsors: Verde Brand Communications, Life Time, Inc.  The Outdoor Alliance website makes it easy to thank local / state Lawmakers and has numerous blog posts about climate and conservation, and the many bridges between the IRA and outdoor recreation The New York Times, Did Democrats just Save Civilization?

New York Times opinion writer Paul Krugman won a Nobel Prize for Economics, but lately it seems like he's gunning for a new prize – that of Biggest Apologist for the Biden administration. And in that role most recently Krugman has been downplaying the prospect that the United States economy is in recession, even though by all traditional definitions of the term we most certainly are. CNN's Brian Stelter helps further the cause by giggling along as Krugman twists the language and the truth to suit the needs of his masters in the Democratic Party. Jimmy and his panel of The Dive's Jackson Hinkle and America's comedian Kurt Metzger discuss the contortions Krugman engages in to try to persuade us that the economy is doing super duper. Plus segments on Nancy Pelosi's word salad speech in Taiwan, the collapse of CNN's ratings and profits, and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet's "oops" moment revealing he may engage in insider trading. Also featuring Stef Zamorano and Black Agenda Report's Danny Haiphong!

Welcome to episode 128 of Activist #MMT. Today I talk with Dirk Ehnts, about his personal journey to MMT, which happened only after obtaining a PhD in mainstream economics. One of Dirk's first hints that something was wrong, was discovering that Paul Krugman's 1991 new trade theory was not representative of the world in which we actually live. Here are Dirk's findings. He was also told by his professors that some of what is obviously true must be ignored, which only serves to further diverge the theory from the world it purports to explain. Only after receiving his PhD did he discover MMT which finally put all the pieces together. It did so in a way that is falsifiable, which means its main assertions are provable or disprovable by empirical evidence. (Here's a link to part two. A list of the audio chapters in this episode can be found at the bottom of this post. I also interviewed Dirk in episodes 66 and 69 with Asker Voldsgaard.) Today in part one, Dirk and I also talk about how microeconomics and macroeconomics relate and are ultimately inseparable. We end with a question from Activist #MMT patron Chiel Harmsen, on the problems of the Eurozone and how to address them. Next week in part two, I ask Dirk questions circling around his new co-authored piece for the Gower Initiative, called Raising Interest Rates Is Like Blowing Up The Garden To Weed It. I start with some very basic questions about how and why central banks maintain stability of the payment system. I then ask him to describe the specific mechanics of how the central bank raising the overnight interest rate target results in millions becoming unemployed – and ultimately more exploitable. And now, onto my conversation with Dirk Ehnts. Enjoy. Audio chapters 3:49 - Hellos, terrible fives, new paper summarizing UK exchequer 6:22 - Can you tell your personal story from mainstream to MMT? 9:29 - Paul Krugman's new economic geography theory 15:14 - Knapp's state theory of money and "reading between the lines" 17:45 - The issuer is above, and creates, economic law 20:54 - Did mainstream feel off while you were in school? 25:29 - No macroeconomic accounting in mainstream macroeconomics 28:31 - When did you read Keynes and how did it affect your education? 30:47 - Did you have an instinct that something was off, or did something specific trigger your skepticism? 32:12 - "I have to incorporate money", second time 33:32 - MMT is falsifiable (where does money come from?) 35:04 - Companies move where wages are (and demand is) high. (Fallacy of composition) 37:14 - Macroeconomics is the study of the systemic effects of microeconomic behavior 39:28 - The desire to lower wages is microeconomic but is so impactful it threatens our species. So how is that not macroeconomic? 43:13 - The consequences of accepting MMT 44:45 - Anti-MMT sentiment in Europe 49:00 - Positive consequences of accepting MMT 52:17 - Patron question from Chiel Harmsen: Problems in the EuroZone. 1:00:35 - Start of academic questions 1:04:06 - Duplicate of introduction, but with no background music (for listeners with sensitive ears)

One of Dirk's first hints that something was wrong, was discovering that was not representative of the world in which we actually live. Here are . He was also told by his professors that some of what is obviously true must be ignored, which only serves to further diverge the theory from the world it purports to explain. Only after receiving his PhD did he discover MMT which finally put all the pieces together. It did so in a way that is falsifiable, which means its main assertions are provable or disprovable by empirical evidence. (Here's a link to part two. A list of the audio chapters in this episode can be found at the bottom of this post. I also interviewed Dirk in episodes and with Asker Voldsgaard.) Today in part one, Dirk and I also talk about how microeconomics and macroeconomics relate and are ultimately inseparable. We end with a question from Activist #MMT patron Chiel Harmsen, on the problems of the Eurozone and how to address them. Next week in part two, I ask Dirk questions circling around his new co-authored piece for the Gower Initiative, called . I start with some very basic questions about how and why central banks maintain stability of the payment system. I then ask him to describe the specific mechanics of how the central bank raising the overnight interest rate target results in millions becoming unemployed – and ultimately more exploitable. And now, onto my conversation with Dirk Ehnts. Enjoy. Audio chapters 3:49 - Hellos, terrible fives, new paper summarizing UK exchequer 6:22 - Can you tell your personal story from mainstream to MMT? 9:29 - Paul Krugman's new economic geography theory 15:14 - Knapp's state theory of money and "reading between the lines" 17:45 - The issuer is above, and creates, economic law 20:54 - Did mainstream feel off while you were in school? 25:29 - No macroeconomic accounting in mainstream macroeconomics 28:31 - When did you read Keynes and how did it affect your education? 30:47 - Did you have an instinct that something was off, or did something specific trigger your skepticism? 32:12 - "I have to incorporate money", second time 33:32 - MMT is falsifiable (where does money come from?) 35:04 - Companies move where wages are (and demand is) high. (Fallacy of composition) 37:14 - Macroeconomics is the study of the systemic effects of microeconomic behavior 39:28 - The desire to lower wages is microeconomic but is so impactful it threatens our species. So how is that not macroeconomic? 43:13 - The consequences of accepting MMT 44:45 - Anti-MMT sentiment in Europe 49:00 - Positive consequences of accepting MMT 52:17 - Patron question from Chiel Harmsen: Problems in the EuroZone. 1:00:35 - Start of academic questions 1:04:06 - Duplicate of introduction, but with no background music (for listeners with sensitive ears)

Hosts: Ansel Lindner and Christian Keroles Listen To This Episode:  Apple / Spotify / Google / Libsyn / Overcast / RSS Charts for episode can be found on BitcoinandMarkets.com/fed100 Fed Watch is the macro podcast for bitcoiners. Each episode we discuss current events in macro from across the globe, with an emphasis on central banks and currencies. In this episode, CK and I cover developments in Japan in regards to Yield Curve Control, in the US in regards to growth and inflation forecasts, and in Europe in regards to the concern about fragmentation. At the end of the episode, we celebrate the 100th episode of Fed Watch by reviewing some of the guests and calls we have made throughout the show's history. Big Trouble in Japan The economic troubles in Japan are legendary at this point. They have suffered through several lost decades of low growth and low inflation, addressed by the best monetary policy tools of the day, by some of the best experts in economics (maybe that was the mistake). None of it has worked, but let's take a minute to review how we got here. Japan entered their recession/depression back in 1991 after their giant asset bubble burst. Since that time, Japanese economic growth has been averaging roughly 1% a year, with low unemployment, and very low dynamism. It's not negative GDP growth, but it's the bare minimum to have an economic pulse.  To address these issues, Japan became the first major central bank to launch Quantitative Easing (QE) in 2001. This is where the central bank, Bank of Japan (BOJ) would buy government securities from the banks in an attempt to correct any balance sheet problems, clearing the way for those banks to lend (aka print money). That first attempt at QE failed miserably, and in fact, caused growth to fall from 1.1% down to 1%. The Japanese were convinced by Western academic economists, like Paul Krugman, who claimed the BOJ failed because they had not "credibly promised to be irresponsible". They must change the inflation/growth expectations of the people by shocking them into inflationary worry. Round two of monetary policy in 2013 was dubbed QQE (Quantitative and Qualitative Easing). In this strategy, the BOJ would cause "shock and awe" at their profligacy, buying not only government securities but other assets like ETFs on the Tokyo stock market. Of course, this failed, too. Round three was the addition of Yield Curve Control (YCC) in 2016, where the BOJ would peg the yield on the 10-year Japanese Government Bond (JGB) to a range of ±10 bps. In 2018, that range was expanded to ±20 bps, and in 2021 to ±25 bps, where we are today. The YCC Fight As the world is now dealing with massive price rises due to the economic hurricane, the government bond yield curve in Japan is pressing upward, testing the BOJ's resolve. As of now, the ceiling has been breached several times, but it hasn't completely burst through. The BOJ now owns more than 50% of all government bonds, on top of their huge share of ETFs on their stock exchange. At this rate, the entire Japanese economy is going to be owned by the BOJ soon. The Yen is also crashing against the dollar. Below is the exchange rate, how many yen to a US dollar. Federal Reserve DSGE Forecasts Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell, went in front of Congress this week and said that a US recession was not his "base case", despite nearly all economic indicators crashing in the last month. Here we take a look at the Fed's own DSGE model. The New York Fed DSGE (dynamic stochastic general equilibrium) model has been used to forecast the economy since 2011, and its forecasts have been made public continuously since 2014.The current version of the New York Fed DSGE model is a closed economy, representative agent, rational expectations model (although we deviate from rational expectations in modeling the impact of recent policy changes, such as average inflation targeting, on the economy). The model is medium scale, in that it involves several aggregate variables such as consumption and investment, but is not as detailed as other, larger, models. As you can see below, the model is predicting this year's Q4 to Q4 GDP to be negative, as well as the 2023 GDP. That checks with my own estimation and expectation that the US will experience a prolonged but slight recession, while the rest of the world experiences a deeper recession. In the below chart, I point out the return to the post Great Financial Crisis (GFC) norm of low growth and low inflation, a norm shared by Japan by the way. European Anti-fragmentation Cracks Only a week after we showed watchers and listeners of Fed Watch ECB President Christine Lagarde's frustration at the repeated anti-fragmentation questions, EU heavyweight, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, comes through like a bull in a china shop. I read parts of an article from Bloomberg, where Rutte claims it's up to Italy, not the ECB, to contain credit spreads. What's the big worry about fragmentation anyway? The European Monetary Union (EMU, aka Eurozone), is a monetary union without a fiscal union. The ECB policy must serve different countries with different indebtedness. This means that ECB policy on interest rates will affect each country within the union differently, and more indebted countries like Italy, Greece and Spain will suffer a greater burden of rising rates. The worry is that these credit spreads will lead to another European Debt Crisis 2.0, and perhaps even political fractures as well. Countries could be forced to leave the Eurozone and/or the European Union itself over this issue. Lookback on 100 Episodes The last part of this episode is spent looking back at some of the predictions and great calls we've made. It didn't go according to my plan, however, and we got lost in some weeds. But overall, we were able to highlight the success of our unique theories put forward by this show in the bitcoin space. Strong dollar Bitcoin and USD stablecoin dominance US's relative decentralization makes it a better fit for bitcoin Bearish on China and Europe We also highlight some specific calls that have been spot on, which you'll have to watch the episode to hear. I wanted to highlight these things to show the success of our contrarian views, despite being unpopular amongst bitcoiners. This show is an important voice in the bitcoin scene because we are prodding and poking the narratives to find the truth of the global monetary system.
