Money and Political Change

Rising and falling interest rates has been with mankind ever since credit became part of financial systems. The ultimate test of creditworthiness for a monarch or country was having deep enough pockets to fund military ventures, and then to use the spoils to rebuild the ensuing damage. This unfortunate human trait culminated in two World Wars during the first half of the 20th century, and was the motivation to adopt Keynesian economic practices. Formalizing a system of money and credit after the Second World War was a huge advance that has since taken the world to more population and greater wealth than at any time in history. Government deficit financing was officially borne.

This was accompanied by a pickup in the pace of technological improvements initially to win the wars. Technology is still doing two things that did not do nearly as well at even just a century ago. It is accelerating so fast that the human element in the three pillars of economics; land, labour and capital is panicking and looking for protection. This is evident in the populism political trend that is responsible for the arrival of protectionist trade wars. This I expect will eventually be made obsolete from a realignment of global political loyalties, unofficially kicking off when Trumps meets Putin. History is unfolding.
