MB Fund podcast: Maybe more debt isn’t the answer? With Jonathan Rochford LIVE 12:30 AEST

Over the past few months we have looked several times at debt crises and how they are likely to be resolved. We had Dr Hail on to talk about MMT, we featured Ray Dalio’s solutions to debt crises and this week we hear the third option: Austrian economics.
Jonathan Rochford will take to the podcast to support this view, driven by the thought that maybe more debt isn’t the answer to every problem.

Join us in today’s investment webinar (LIVE 12:30pm AEST), as MB Fund’s Head of Investments Damien Klassen, Head of Operations Tim Fuller and Jonathan Rochford of Narrow Road Capital discuss the idea that “Maybe more debt isn’t the answer?”

We’ll conclude by discussing the investment implications of this going forward

  1. If more debt is not the answer, I guess we just wasted a LOT of time and effort on lowering teh rates.

    Afterall, whats the point of lowering teh rates, if it is not more debt?

    • Jumping jack flash

      Pfft! More debt is always the answer. Just ask any bank. They’ll tell you.

      If you have a problem with your car, you go to an expert on cars, a mechanic.
      If you have a problem with your health, you go to an expert on health, a doctor.

      If you have a problem with your money, you go to an expert on money, and nobody is more an expert than a bank. They make the stuff. And that’s probably the reason why governments ask them what they should do about their money problem, and the answer, unsurprisingly, is more debt.

    • – But you’re assuming that e.g. the RBA or the government is able to control / determine rates. Rates are determined by a person called “Mr. Market”.

    If we were to create a fair system, more debt wouldn’t be the answer. But when has fairness ever played into anything.
