Who Gets To Suffer?

Who Gets To Suffer PDF Version

One thing that is helpful in figuring out why

things turnout the way they do is ordinary thinking. There seems to be a moratorium on that activity.

As far as I know, I am the only person in the world who has pondered such  things as who came up with the Corona Virus Response? One hint is, given just by making an observation as to who and what is profiting greatly as a result.

Another unasked question is where does the incentive to censor information that is deemed not good for the masses to hear, see or read come from? Do tech companies have a natural incentive to protect people from being exposed to what they alone deem harmful? In all of history, corporations have never taken this posture before. So, what is unique about today’s world that makes this necessary? Are ordinary citizens too stupid to process meaningful information. Well, we use the jury system. Ordinary citizens seem to do just fine with deciding complex legal arguments.

All kinds of bad things are happening to ordinarily people in this economy while corporate profits are sound and GDP is acceptable? It is really hard to find out just how many citizens get paid by any and all government entities, including teachers, military, contractors, fire fighters and others?

Today, I made note of where the essence of just my neighbors on my street comes from. This is a very conservative neighborhood.

Here is what I found. EMS Technician and military nurse, pluming contractor, retired air force, firefighter, USPS, retied general, retired colonel,  civil service, civil service, restores old cars. Each of these folks consider themselves to be staunch conservatives. This does not even include what public private partnerships suck out of the overall economy.

Now notice who is suffering. Absolutely no one that I can see other than the self employed unemployed or retired and eaten up by inflation.

Unless one believes in magic, collapse of the entire system, government, economy and way of life is the only possible outcome.

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.
