Work is a second choice to living off of others. That little truth is rejected by mainstream economics dogma. So many of these little truths are ignored in mainstream economics, that the discipline itself is completely handicapped.

So, what is the main role government plays in our lives? It provides a formal mechanism for using all resources available in attempting and succeeding at living off the efforts of others. So, who actually ends up living off the efforts of others? Continue reading

Bailouts Have Already Started

Forty plus years of central economic planning guarantee a severe economic depression. Stimulus is only a word. No genuine stimulus occurs. Stimulus is a euphemism for lobbyist inspired government spending. Fancy explanations will emerge but what I just wrote is the root cause of the coming depression. Tampering with the economy, especially the financial markets guarantees an economic collapse. This is the least popular explanation so it will be replaced with countless volumes of fancy explanations. That happens when the truth is unappealing. Continue reading

Trump Will Make Make You Pay For It

So, Trump is going to build a wall and Mexico will pay for it. The president is absolutely extraordinary at getting people to pay for things. What you may not be clear on is that Trump is going to make you pay for everything in the end, including the wall between the United States and Mexico.

How will he make you pay? First he will manipulate you into needing his approval. Then you will believe anything he says. He will make you feel like a patriot for promoting your own poverty. Continue reading

Take This Rally Very Seriously

Download PDF Version

Back on December 27, 2018 I published the article in red text. Don’t Dismiss This Rally  You may remember that at that time the initial short squeeze was largely dismissed as a bear market rally. I saw it differently and I was right. I was right, not because I am smart but because I don’t believe lies. That is the fantasy free advantage. Continue reading

I Do Not Believe Lies

Download PDF Version

I don’t believe lies. That is not automatically a good thing. It does put me at a distinct advantage at this particular time in history as an economist, political analyst and teacher of natural law.

Lie is a general term . There are many kinds of lies. The kind I am concerned with are beliefs and notions that are just not true but in fact are almost universally believed. These kinds of lies are very detrimental to the lives of everyone, because belief in them guarantees corruption in government, and are a direct cause of the economic difficulties the average person is experiencing or is about to experience.

Dying For HealthCare

Download PDF Version                                    Originally posted Apr 17, 2019

Americans have opted to remove all remaining vestiges of the free market system from their health care system. Do not be too quick to applaud them for that decision. The only health care system in the world that is worse than healthcare provided in classic socialist countries and democratic socialist countries, is the system that has been created here in our non-democratic socialist economy.

Taking an industry out of the free market realm and replacing it with a system of collective non economic decisions changes the incentives of all who are part of the healthcare system. That is because governments are not capable of making economic decisions. A child with a dollar in a candy store makes economic decisions. The child gets as much candy as is possible to buy for a dollar. Only the candy with the highest utility to the child gets purchased. The child cannot buy all he wants. But, out of self interest must economize. Continue reading

Predicting one day crashes is hazardous. We do know they occur on rare occasions given the right conditions. It just so happens we have the right conditions. While rare crashes can be devastating. People buy insurance on their houses to protect them in unlikely cases their houses burn down. Thinking about what to do in the case of a stock market crash is not at all imprudent, even though odds are against it.

Deep State Stock Market Logic

Download PDF Version Originally Published 3/13/2019

Even a modest bear market will go a long way towards destroying the deep state. Deep State operatives are buying outright to control the trend of the market.  What is their alternative?

The choice is to invest more outright or have ones wealth completely devastated by natural market forces. The Deep State has absolutely nothing to loose by using their own resources to support the value they already have. The only alternative is to absorb a guaranteed loss and run the risk of ceasing to exist. Continue reading

Can the United States Survive a Bear Market?

If the stock market falls, it will take the rest of the economy with it.

Without rising asset prices, there would be no economic recovery. The model used for causing economic activity is the “If we build it they will come.” model. The idea is that if the wealthiest of the world’s citizen are enriched when the value of all they own rises independently of earnings and everything else, the recovery will extend all the way to the bottom of the food chain. Does the logic of this sound solid? If it does, I will remind you that the logic behind a chain letter sounds appealing. Continue reading
