Bonner, the difference between paper money and credit

Steve Saville; "Most rational people with some knowledge of economic history will realise that the US$ will eventually be the victim of hyperinflation."
It's amazing how many writers, economists and, people in general believe that hyperinflation is coming because the FED increased the "money" supply.

Bonner; "The Fed is not printing money. If it were printing money, we’d have more money around… and higher consumer prices." "Yes, their new system is totally fraudulent and absolutely ruinous – just like an old fashioned money-printing scheme. But the fraud takes much longer to uncover… and the ruin is only obvious at the end. "
"Instead of printing money itself, the Fed allows banks to create an almost unlimited amount of credit "
" At first, this new credit-money acts much like printing-press money: It gives people money to spend that nobody ever earned. Everybody is happy.

But if you keep on creating more and more paper money, the fraud is soon obvious. Prices rise. People realize that they have no more purchasing power than they had before. " " By setting up this credit-money system, on the other hand, the feds avoided that problem… or at least, postponed it.

Between 1980 and 2016, for example, Americans spent $32 trillion in net, excess credit. That’s credit (and debt) above and beyond the historic relationship between GDP and debt. "
" If the feds had handed out paper money, prices would have gone up. But even in a recession, or a debt deflation, the cash would still be there. Printing-press money raises prices, permanently.

But a credit-money system is very different. Every new dollar that comes into the system is also another dollar of debt." "Now, American consumers, businesses, and government all drag behind them about $60 trillion in debt."
" Debt is just the flip side of credit. As debt goes bad, credit disappears. And then the system that created so much credit-money will go into reverse, destroying the nation’s money supply.

The money supply (actually, the supply of ready credit) will shrink – suddenly and dramatically. And what should have been a minor, routine pullback in the economy will become a catastrophic panic."
The Fed’s “Doomsday Device” Is About to Explode
Once you inject paper money into the system, you can't get it back out. A paper note exists forever. Credit is just a belief that relies entirely on confidence. "Americans spent $32 trillion" We've already had hyperinflation but, only in the credit supply, NOT in the paper money supply.

Planet Debt and the Deep State; Planet Debt
Armstrong said that 26% of Americans are hoarding cash at home.
"During the first and second quarters of 2014, the velocity of the monetary base2 was at 4.4, its slowest pace on record. This means that every dollar in the monetary base was spent only 4.4 times in the economy during the past year, down from 17.2 just prior to the recession. "
