I saw this interview from another source. It’s an incredibly good interview.
He explains how cheap air fares and the modern telecommunications kick started Globalization and all the ills resultant from that -depresses wages, loss of jobs widening gaps between rich and poor etc.
When it came to Greece his answer is what must eventually happen, followed by Portugal, Spain etc
When he talked about loans and debt he missed one opportunity to show that paying debts back is only a moral hazard between individuals and the like not with banks.
With banks all their lending money comes out of thin air, so if a loan goes bad the bank just marks down numbers in accounts to cover. No ones real asset loses. Someone won a court case 40-50 years ago when the bank admitted their money was just computer numbers, while he had a real house, so there was no equivalence, an essential requirement.
I don’t know why we have not seen a rash of such cases.
No he doesn’t go into limits to growth except he would have if there had been a question.

I ain’t gonna watch it. How much of history has had a constant supply of these sorts of prognostications? 100%? 99.9%? They have no analytical or predictive value.
