Bursting the Big Banks’ Bubble – Andy Tanner, Jerry Epstein

In this episode of the Cash Flow Academy podcast, host Andy Tanner is joined by Gerald Epstein, a professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and author of ‘Busting the Banker’s Club: Finance for the Rest of Us.’

Tanner and Epstein discuss the influence and operations of what is referred to as the ‘Bankers Club,’ consisting of major banks, politicians, regulatory institutions, and their allies. They discuss how these entities collaborate to secure bailouts, deregulations, and profits, often at the expense of the general public and the overall economy.

Epstein critiques the system’s failure to regulate mega banks post-financial crises and explores solutions like supporting community banks, public banking, and improving financial education for the public. The episode further touches on the need for a fairer banking system, and the potential of digital finance, and critiques modern monetary theory (MMT) and the current educational system’s inadequacies in teaching finance and economics.
