Hello! To everyone asking why investors aren't just holding the cash instead of investing the money. This is touched on in the video: prices can still rise for a negative-yielding bond. This price appreciation provides insurance when risk assets are slumping. Hope that helps!

God is a pedofilia propagandist
For Jews it was 13
The Vatican stand accused of pedofilia and hold the original bible locked up
In the Qur'an its three months after first menstruation

I don't think you ever answered the question why negative-yielding bonds are purchased at all, which is the title of the video. You do mention several times that it is "a topsy turvy world out there." I read the FT every day; can't believe they produced this video.

Bitcoin, gold, and real estate are effective hedges against currency devaluations.

For this topsy turvy video, the quick summary is that
(1) some negative bond investors still feel safer than other alternatives (cash, stock etc), so much that many of them keep buying bonds driving the price up, forcing the yield down
(2) for some institutions like pension fund and insurance, they have no choice even if have to own -ve bond 'cuz need to make sure that their fund is liquid
(3) over the long term neg yield could mean lower return on pension yield meaning workers will be forced to work longer and save more. In eurozone countries people have become concerned about not receiving positive returns and started to set aside money for the future. The central banks believe this is a good strategy for the economy but there are critics.
the less topsy turvy part starts at around 4:00

MMT Modern Monetary Theory cooks inflation up to newer levels never thought of before. Don't let the propaganda manipulate you. This is dangerous debt. Globalists want US to cave to MMT, don't do it.

In negative yield bonds you are basically giving money to make sure your money doesn't devalue too much due to inflation.

All spending/borrowing comes from savings. Discouraging savings (inflation) focuses too much on the short term and ignores the misallocation of resources for (as you've stated) "riskier debts". This hurts economies in the long run. Encouraging savings (deflation) hurts consumption now, but discourages risky debts. This helps society in the long run. This is why the global financial market is a giant ponzi-scheme. These practices within individual nations would've collapsed much sooner, but because of global deals under a global reserve currency, this process is getting much larger. We're heading towards a worldwide financial collapse as nations eventually de-dollarize.

This is encouraged because bond issuers i.e governments and banks are excused in delivering less than the original amount borrowed.. What is wrong with this scenario? There is no obligation to be mindful with expenses because the general public will end up paying the costs, additionally government expenses contines to increase significantly.

"…and unless something goes seriously wrong…"
Something like a scrupulously planned and brutally executed, fabricated shutdown of the western economies using the excuse of a middle-ranking viral outbreak; followed by the central banks printing trillions of magical vouchers, diluting all existing currency holdings and basically flying their respective economies into the ground.
