The National Deb(i)t

the national debt

For centuries, civilization believed that in our solar system, the sun revolved around the earth, that it was pulled by Earth’s gravity, and that our universe was limited to within the Firmament. This was proven wrong in modern times.

Today, it is believed that in our monetary system, the US federal government’s finances revolve around us, that federal spending is pulled by federal taxes and by federal borrowing, and that federal spending is limited within a debt ceiling. This idea is proven wrong in modern monetary theory.

Like many things, when it comes to finance, just as important as your diversity in investments is your diversity in thought.

This book gives you a different way to think about our national debt and US Treasury bonds, or, rather, a way you should not think about them.

Edward J. Delzio was born and raised in northern New Jersey. After graduating from Wilkes College in 1983, he began entry-level work on Wall Street for RMJ Securities, a US Treasury bond brokerage firm.

His career as a Treasury bond broker at RMJ, Cantor Fitzgerald, and eSpeed lasted just under 30 years, split between branch-office locations in New York City and Tokyo.

He is presently an Investment Advisor representative with Primerica Advisors in Westchester County in the state of New York, where he lives with his wife, Yukiko.
