Jerry Seinfeld - paper money is a scam

I watched these 'out-takes' from Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. It's a brief segment of Jerry and a few of his guests talking about money (or currency).

Jerry seems extremely close to figuring out the huge ponzie scheme that is our Federal Reserve system.

Don't make too much of this....


Seinfeld is just going for laughs here, and not making any deep commentary about the private Bank monopoly.

He's just laughing at the absurdity of "money" as a concept of exchange; and that we all have to agree upon some arbitrary thing as having value.

I doubt Seinfeld has any detailed knowledge at all here about fractional reserve banking (which is legalized profiteering on non-existent money that never existed...i.e. legalized fraud), or how money is created to produce debt systematically (which taxpayers have to pay back), or how a private cabal controls the money supply and its expansion (not the u.s. treasury, or the elected "government").

Seinfeld is not political. He's just out for finding a joke here.
It's also easy to laugh about money when you are amazingly rich, like Seinfeld.

But for the poor...money is not a joke. It's a curse.

Down voted comment. First I'm at least 1/64 Jewish by traceable heritage, second I love Jews they're funny, third I was the first to bump this thread (see below)

Let's be honest with ourselves.

He wouldn't expose the scam because it would directly hurt his fortune he has amassed over the years, If he were to expose the corrupt system he would be put back into the (Normal Person) Category losing all his toys.

Instead he would rather talk about something we all knew as children in hopes of gathering a new audience, Hell this was all sponsored by Acura... You think they want our economic system changed?

The Ayes have it!

Damn, what did you do that

Damn, what did you do that for? I just spent 2 hours watching Jerry and some very funny guys!!!

Beware the cult of "government"...

It is a good series.

This post reminded me to binge view the most recent season of the show. Thanks from me to. I may just tweet Jerry some Austrian stuff on the Fed.

Pretty obvious to me

Seinfeld is a smart guy.

Seinfeld is a smart guy. Being funny is a proxy that indicates intelligence, a hereditary trait, which is why women find funny guys attractive even when they are fugly.

Lots of people understand the hustle, but the problem is that in order to do something about it the masses have to be mobilized, and that won't happen when they engage in willful ignorance or lack the brain power to understand.

We all deserve our God given equal rights, but God didn't gift everyone intelligence equally. Democracy would work great if everyone is smart, but they aren't.

haven't you read the new scientist

plenty smart poeple in there who are fools, being intelligent doesn't make you wise, being a fool doesn't mean you stupid either.

There are different kinds of

There are different kinds of smarts, book smarts and street smarts. I think that street smarts combined with courage is what it takes to be awakened from the matrix. You don't need any formal book learnin, or even the ability to read to see a hustle. You have to understand the psychology of the hustle, but also be brave enough to not lie yourself out of what you know, because of the backlash that comes with being a boat rocker. The nail that stands up gets hammered down.

A lot of people know something is wrong but they accept it as normal because they are cowards, and cowards go along to get along.

At a training course I took there was 50 year old guy that commented that he thought it was best to see no evil and hear no evil, like he somehow cleverly figured out the key to life. Best to go along to get along basically. I quickly disagreed with him, and I told him if I walked by an alley and some guy was raping a woman, I would intervene, not ignore it. There was this real morally sound 18 year old kid sitting with us and without hesitation he agreed with me that he would do something too.

Having been exposed as a coward in front of about 5 people, the guy was like, oh well, yes, I would too in that situation. No he wouldn't though. If confronted with that situation he would run and call the cops, instead of risking bodily harm to stop a rapist. He has no higher purpose in his soul but than to serve himself, and too much of that is what is wrong with humanity imo.

There is good and evil in everyone's hearts, but too many people think the evil is cutesy, fun, and to be admired. Everyone should be disgusted that they have a plague inside of them, not celebrating it.

What is intelligence really?

It is better to look dumb and not be, than to look smart and not be.

That was great.
