Opinion | Congress Can’t Enact a Chicken

26 Jul

I sent the following email to Kessler about his column.

Your column today should be read by every American, especially the financial illiterates in DC and state capitals.  It is one of the most important essays I have read in a newspaper in my lifetime. Which is now in the middle of my eighth decade.  This is not an overstatement.   The Journal has published insightful essays over the years, but your column totally demolishes the Keynesian paradigm once and for all and should have an impact on policymakers.  However, I doubt it.  They all worship at the altar of the real “trickle down economics”–spend, tax, print money and regulate.   I will link your column on my blog.

Your point that “saving and investment must precede consumption” was articulated by Murray Rothbard on p. 22 of his 1962 essay, “The Case for a 100 Percent Gold Dollar,” “production – “purchase” of money – – “sale” of money.” I first read his essay in 1974 when I purchased his books and those of others of the Austrian school at the Foundation for Economic Education.   (https://cdn.mises.org/Case%20for%20a%20100%20Percent%20Gold%20Dollar_2.pdf)

I began each of my finance classes for 35 years (1985-2020) with this proposition that as a college professor I could consume goods and services because I provided a service–teaching finance.  Production indeed precedes consumption.  I point this out in my Fed book to highlight why printing money does not create wealth, and leads to numerous economic and financial distortions.    

Keep it up.  We will eventually have a free market economy.  The great unknown is when will policymakers admit their mistakes.

JFK – Accept Our Diverse World as It Is, by Patrick J. Buchanan 

23 Jul

“This is an amazing column on LRC today by conservative Pat Buchanan focusing upon “The Peace Speech” — JFK’s Commencement Address at American University, June 10, 1963. Buchanan demonstrates prudential insight and introspection in taking the core principled message of non-confrontational peaceful coexistence and mutual respect for diversity in Kennedy’s most important address of his presidency (hailed as one of the most important by any president) and applying it to the tense geopolitical conditions of today fraught with belligerence and mistrust. There are many observers who believe that it was this speech that directly led to JFK’s murder and the” … Continue reading →

Under Biden Free Enterprise Means Government Control – The Future of Freedom Foundation

22 Jul

“George Orwell famously coined the term “newspeak” in his 1949 anti-utopian futuristic novel, 1984, in which commonsense words were reversed in their meaning. Thus, “peace” meant “war,” and “love” meant “hate.” In our current world of political correctness, “equal rights” means “privilege,” and “freedom” means “oppression.” Now, with President Biden’s recent executive order on “active” enforcement of antitrust laws, “more market competition” really means “greater government regulation.”Welcome to President Biden’s Orwellian newspeak – “freedom of enterprise” really Continue Reading

“So, Now You Are Vaccinated Against COVID-19.  40 Trillion Packages Of RNA Have Been Injected That Induce Irreversible Changes In Your Blood Vessels. Now What? Depending upon which source of information you believe, your life is in the balance if you make the wrong decision about COVID-19 vaccination. A problem with what I write today is that the information below, which is essential to know to maintain health following COVID-19 vaccination, may induce more fear and anxiety, which is what is driving the pandemic and the misdirected decisions over COVID-19 vaccination.   I’ll explain more about this below.
