    These videos of yours are amazing! Your technique distills complex topics into short and easy to understand lectures. At the same time, embedding the documents and highlighting the key parts is a brilliant insight.

    Your observation that Pimco is still heavily invested in Treasuries alone was important.

    The reason this open short position may succeed is that U.S. Treasury securities are backed by the full might and power of the U.S. military. As much as nations around the world complain about the value of our currency, they still accept it in trade. As long as drug dealers accept U.S. currency, there is still tremendous incentive to do business with us. Check out Warren Moseler's book, "Seven Deadly Innocent Frauds about the U.S. Monetary System"to see why I say this.
