TotalBitcoin #90: Stefanie von Jan & Emil Sandstedt - "Money Creation in Fiat System"
Play episode · 59 min

Stefanie von Jan & Emil Sandstedt join me in this episode to discuss the fundamental questions on "Money Creation in the Fiat System".   

We talked about:  
⁃ Money creation at central banks and banks in the process of both credit creation and asset purchase  
⁃ Discussion whether fiat money is „debt“ or „money“ and reconciliation of both
- fiat money as „debt money“  
⁃ The fiat system as a debt system (fiat is backed by future tax payments)
⁃ Debt money is destroyed when paid back - money created through asset purchase cannot be destroyed
⁃ Fiat as a medium due to its acceptance as a medium of exchange
⁃ Fiat is not a good store to value since new money creation is centralized and therefore unreliable   
⁃ The Federal Reserve forwards its revenue to the government and can therefore not be considered independent   
⁃ Discussion of the importance of scarcity for a sound money  
⁃ Stock to flow as a measure of scarcity   
⁃ Inflation
- when does it hit us and how strongly?   
⁃ Did central banks buy Bitcoin already or are they going to do so?   
⁃ Transition to Bitcoin as a monetary system - gradually then suddenly
