What We Are Afraid To See and Maybe Don’t Want to Know

There is an unspoken agreement between government, organized crime and larger trading firms. Manipulate prices if you wish as long as the results are higher prices. What a great way to make money this is, contingent of course on all of the big players in the financial arena being on the same page. There are plenty of losers but they don’t know they are being soaked or how it is being done. As a result of the Federal Reserve’s giving out free trading money ordinary people pay more for gas, milk, rent and all other life’s basics. People who simply save get nothing in terms of interest on their money because banks get all the money they want for nothing, from the Federal Reserve.
Theft is legal when it is accomplished through the use of government especially when the victims don’t mind. The thieves only have one risk. Financial assets might drop in price despite the organized efforts to keep them moving higher. It happened with real estate.
Right now we have a delicate equilibrium. All of the thieves are working together and the victims are not suffering enough to investigate the source of their hardships. What could happen to upset this cozy arrangement? What if the solution to the Cypress crisis were to burn the Russian Mob, or any other group milking the asset value enhancement cash cow? Up until now, the path of least resistance for big players has been to work together. If just one breaks ranks and decides to work the downside of the market, the result will be a stock market avalanche.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
