EPISODE 2:How bubbles grow is the second episode of a video lecture by Dirk Bezemer from the University of Groningen. It covers how debt and money can be created by banks for both productive and non-productive purposes. With non-productive purposes mainly being asset markets. Here excessive debt causes the prices of these assets to go up. The market does not correct for this. This leads to bubbles and a large debt burden which are a drag on the economy.
