I found this interesting video from Nathan's Economic Edge. Whereas I agree that Bankers in general have been irresponsible with their ability to create money from nothing, I'm not so sure government always has a better way to spend that money. But there are government programs I believe in, like affordable healthcare for seniors, necessary infrastructure projects, and others.
I have to admit, a video like this makes Modern Monetary Theory look attractive. But as I said, my concern with government taking over a larger part of an economy is the potential for the misallocation of capital. Governments should focus on basic services instead. As for Banks, they need to be held to a higher standard and regulated better in exchange for having such an "exorbitant privilege" as money creation.
