Why Weinstein? Why Now?

After decades of being who he is with hardly a soul not knowing about his behavior, his friends and everyone else in the world has turned against him. The question here is not what he did or how bad it was but, why now? It was all common knowledge. Who in Hollywood has morals much if any higher?

Weinstein looks like a sacrifice. The candidates he normally supports have dug themselves into deep holes. The money he has contributed to campaigns no longer has the same utility it once did.  Perhaps he had lost influence.

Perhaps there is trouble in paradise. Relationships among the elite may be experiencing some stress. Our anointed citizens may be having issues with waining solidarity. This could have ramifications with respect to everything from healthcare to the financial markets.

One thing is for sure. Weinstein is not being brought down suddenly without a reason or an agenda attached. There has to be a need for one general scapegoat available for massive finger shaking. The pretense of innocence among all who knew him is quite colorful. Should we expect more theatrics and righteous indignation. Yes, of course.

For sure Weinstein’s fall represents emerging stress among the elite. Probably his circumstances will be used to focus on while issues with other important people are uncovered. Being a sociopath has some disadvantages. One of those is that others who are like you discard you like rubbish as soon as you are of no use to them.

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.
