Not good info.

I just breifly watched one segment and he said banks loan customers deposits. Well that is just not true, they create the money they loan, and charge you interest on something they don't really have.

well your confirming

That they also can, ten fold, the amount to loan by using the deposit figures from the depositor ..Deposits are probably considered cash reserve.

I'm sure many/most of us here

I'm sure many/most of us here knows how it works. I was just pointing out that (or attempting) that this man is part of the game, an economist, and isn't worth my time to watch it because he doesn't understand the system.

Or maybe he does and he's lying, who knows. It's not good freedom information anyways in my opinion.
