Oh dear, oh dear, Austin. You seem to have got yourself terribly confused. You seem to be having some serious difficulties.

“just presenting mainstream neoclassical economics as unassailably correct is not convincing.”

I gave no such presentation!

“Your claim that I must be wrong because I don’t have an institutionally awarded title is not only unconvincing it’s rude.”

I made no such claim!

“I know arguments from authority are a sign of intellectual incompetence.”

I never offered any “arguments from authority.”

I was simply offering friendly advice, which you seem to have taken extremely defensively!

You wrote:

“the only way for the overall money supply (and therefore the economy) to grow is for the rate of money/debt creation to constantly accelerate”

But since it is entirely possible to grow an economy without any increase in the money supply, this makes little sense. And if you don’t understand how it is possible, that just demonstrates your lack of understanding of some very basic Economics. But it is not my job to tutor you for free.

Please take a little time for self-reflection. Your overly defensive mindset is making it difficult for you to engage in intelligent discussion.

Unless you were offering your last response as some kind of joke, I think you owe me an apology.
