This documentary explains why most students are so uninspired.
The overall collapsing of the international economy is ever more prevalent with each passing month and appropriately addressing this collapse should be at the forefront of all policy makers and citizens alike. This paper will present a series of policy recommendations that speak to the collapse presently taking place in the U.S., recommendations that are predicated on the system of Keplerian...
The Propensity for Preference
An economics professor told me that economists define economic efficiency as whatever best suits our preference. To a large extent this is what many on the side of the “free market” argue. One establishes the need or desire for a particular product or service, one then goes to secure said product or service. But is this efficiency? Should we erect and maintain a national economy around this...
Economic Progress as defined by Adam Smith
What is economic progress? At its core, economy is the application of scientific principles in our physical environment to increase the power of the human species over nature. In this formula the quality of progress is determined through a constant harmonizing of the human condition—a condition guided by physical principles—with the need to increase efficiency in modes of production. The Adam...
DB: Idiocy in the NYT
I came across an op ed in the New York Times that was so evil and full of idiocy that I had to dedicate an entry to it. In his piece, David Brooks posits that our “fiscal crisis is about our inability to face death.” His arguments rest on the low value and high cost of research dedicated to eradicating diseases. He claims that U.S. coffers are emptied in its pursuit to extend the...
Secret International Bailouts No Longer a Secret
Wondering exactly where the bailout money went? Here are a few of the hands it touched: McDonald’s took $203 million from the Federal Reserve Six Minnesota banks received a total $450 million Caterpillar took $733 million from the Federal Reserve The USA based Verizon Communications took $1.5 billion from the Federal Reserve Harley-Davidson received bailout money 33 times, for a total of $2.3...
The Rise of Anglo-Dutch Liberalism and its Role in...
On countless occasions I’ve heard the term liberalism used to identify an ideology or policy. But, more than likely, the person using it does not actually know what it means or where its’ concepts come from. The idea and characteristics of this particular form of liberalism represents a body of knowledge which transcended topic areas. After the collapse of European civilization in the 14th...
The Errors of Religion
“If one considers the great multiplicity of religions in the world, each claiming to represent Truth, the evident answer is that none of them do, and do so no more than a grain of sand represents the seashore. But within the grains there some aspects of truth embedded, some concepts that have been recognized across the ages that uncover some divine aspects about ourselves. In them, in these...
Real Solutions to Finacial Collapse
The current process of collapse of the international financial system need not destroy the whole of the real economy. Despite the mantra repeated constantly in media, political, and academic circles, there are clear and decisive maneuvers that the U.S. can take—in concert with other countries such as Russia, India, and China—to eradicate the mountains of international debt and generate a...
The Evils of Monetarism
Amidst the frenzy of policy recommendations from economic “experts,” it is difficult to sift through such platitudes in order to identify the governing principles which have led the U.S. and the rest of the world to the brink of a “new dark age” (Lyndon LaRouche). The mechanisms through which this state of affairs have and will manifest are the same used by the first Roman Empire, founded by among...
More Tax and Regulation Please
A fellow classmate and I had a friendly debate yesterday evening concerning the regulatory role of the Federal Reserve and the U.S. system of taxation, and how these two issues factored into the current fiscal crisis we face as a country. His argument unfortunately was typical of the academic nonsense and main stream media dribble we hear on a daily basis, which almost always lacks historical...

Afghanistan Banks Need Propping Up
http://drudge.tw/9KsdZN This article says no tax payer funds, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they found a way to use checkbook credit with US assurences or IMF reserves (i.e. money created for that purpose). We certainly will see, as the US will be involved in Afghanistan for a while.
It’s not about left or right, it’s about right and wrong. Even if this is what people were led to believe in 2008, this is not the only, or dare I say best way to secure healthcare for more citizens, or stimulate the economy. These tax increases are going to hurt most of us, and enrich a select few. http://drudge.tw/aA5165
