Intellectual fallout from the likely failure of Graham-Cassidy "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

1. The Democrats were debating single payer while this bill, which they dread, nearly passed (and still has some chance of passing).  This was not a random mistake, rather it reflects a more general tendency of the Democratic Party to focus on the wrong kind of expressive values, in a manner which does not seem remediable.  We need to re-model what they are, and build this kind of un-educability into the new model.

2. One lesson of Graham-Cassidy failure is that American health care, at the state level, is a race to the bottom not to the top.  Recall that the Canadian health care system also leaves key decisions to the provinces + block grants, but American Progressives love the results.  Most observers know the American states would not copy the Canadian provinces in their policies, and it is not only because fiscal equalization is weaker to the south.  The reality is that spending much more on health care would not make most American states much more desirable places for most people to live in.  If it did, Graham-Cassidy would be a better idea than in fact it is and a race to the top would ensue.  Better health care would brighten up states all around, attract more population, and increase the revenue going into governors coffers.

Democrats and Republicans both find this inadequacy of state-level outcomes difficult to accept, though for opposing reasons.  Democrats hate having to recognize that all the extra health care spending might be mainly redistribution rather than remedying a market failure or providing a broad-based social public good.  Republicans hate to see that giving states control over health care policy, and allowing them to revise Obamacare, wont improve those states and probably would make most of them worse.

Of course my points #1 and #2 relate.  I agree Graham-Cassidy is a bad idea, but every time I hear the critics say it is heartless, or would take away peoples health insurance, or kill people, what I really hear is If we let everyone vote again on Obamacare, with a real time balanced budget constraint, they wouldnt vote for nearly as much health care next time around.

Which is why you should not be obsessing over single-payer systems.

Across the board, pondering Graham-Cassidy, including its failure, should make you more pessimistic about economic and social processes.

For Labour, its all about what you say "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Labour members heading to Brighton this weekend will be a historical anomaly. Because they will be perky. That isnt the word youd normally associate with Labour party members on the eve of party conference for the last decade. Depressed, occasionally. Determined, often. But perky? No.

And fair enough. Just 15 weeks ago they learnt that the British public had revived their partys chance of forming a government rather than relegating them to the fringes of politics, with a 40% vote share, only achieved on two other occasions since 1970. Far from massive losses the party saw a net gain of 30 seats. They might have been near a million votes off winning the election. But when everyone tells you your team is certain to be relegated and then they squeeze into a Europa League spot, perky is the least you feel justified in being.

In hindsight maybe the surprise shouldnt have been quite so surprising. Only once since 1918 has a party that has been in government for as long as the Conservatives have since 2010 not lost seats in an election. Theresa May might have taken some comfort from the fact that Harold Macmillan, then like her a (reasonably) new PM, had bucked the seat losing trend back in 1959. But that was the era of youve never had it so good. Ten years on from the financial crisis, amidst the weakest decade for wage growth since the Napoleonic wars, and with years of spending cuts both behind and ahead of us, it would take a brave politician to repeat that phrase today.

Indeed, on the narrow following of both the political and economic cycles, the normal result should have been a Labour victory on 8 June. Obviously the economic legacy of the crash, challenging internal party politics and Brexit complicated the situation. But perky activists heading to Brighton should still pause to consider how a government with all the headwinds above returned to office.

Rightly much of the election post-mortem has focused on the starkest age divide in British political history, as the young voted overwhelmingly for Labour while the over 65s backed the Conservatives by more than two to one. Even his most ardent critics acknowledge that Jeremy Corbyn has done a good thing for politics by playing a part in encouraging the young to vote. This new generational divide has left the Conservatives understandably panicked that they have lost support of voters who are, for reasons of longevity, more likely to be voting in the years ahead.

Debates about how this has happened (clues include rapidly falling home ownership rates amongst the young, who have also suffered by far the deepest pay squeeze and biggest student debt) and what they can do about it rightly concern the Conservatives so much theyve taken to discussing it on haystacks at festivals.

But then there is the issue of class. Some have concluded from the fact...

The limits of refrigerator privacy? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

It seems we never quite reach them:

Walmart is testing a service that delivers groceries straight to your fridge when youre not home.

On Friday, the retail giant announced a partnership with August Home, a smart-lock startup, that would allow a delivery person to enter customers orders and put groceries away in their refrigerators

Delivery drivers will have a one-time passcode that allows them to unlock the August smart lock if customers do not answer the door when the delivery team arrives to drop off groceries. They will then drop off packages in the foyer, unload groceries in the fridge, and leave with the door locking behind them.

Customers get a notification when the driver rings the doorbell. August home-security cameras allow them to watch the entire process from the app if they wish.

Where does Brexit stand today? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is the Financial Times:

Theresa May has been applauded by Brussels for her constructive spirit after she set out plans to keep Britain in the EU in all but name until 2021, five years after the country voted to leave the bloc.

In a conciliatory speech in Florence, Mrs May also said Britain would pay 20bn into the EU budget after Brexit and signalled the contribution was only a downpayment on what could be a considerably larger exit bill.

Although Britain will formally leave the EU in March 2019, under Mrs Mays model it would still be covered by all EU rules, European court judgments, the free movement of EU workers and budgetary contributions to Brussels until the transition ends. . . .

The speech delighted business leaders who believe Mrs Mays plan for a transition period of around two years after Brexit in March 2019 will avoid a cliff-edge and was welcomed by Michel Barnier, the EUs chief negotiator.

Here are some comments:

1.  By now it should be clear why I distinguished between the economic effects of Brexit uncertainty and the economic effects of Brexit itself.  We now know that Brexit uncertainty had no noticeable impact on UK real GDP growth (which was about the same in the 12 months after Brexit as during the 12 months before.)  I still believe that Brexit itself will lead to somewhat slower growth, as do the currency markets.  But the delay in Brexit has allowed a partially recovery in the pound, which has bounced back to $1.35, after dropping from $1.46 to $1.23 after the vote (and subsequent Brexit means Brexit rhetoric.)

2.  I think its very unlikely that the UK will (de facto) leave the EU in March 2021 (if ever).  May is rumored to have favored an even longer delay, but worried about a leadership challenge from Boris Johnson.  Notice she said around two years, which could mean three years.  Britain really doesnt want to leave; thats obvious.

3.  And by 2021 or 2022, who knows what the political si...

Is there a Rawlsian argument for redistribution as a form of social insurance? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is one presentation of such an argument, but keep in mind these points:

1. The strongest argument for redistribution is when redistribution boosts economic growth and benefits all or most of society.  That is by no means always the case, but it is sometimes true and of course it is not a Rawlsian argument.

2. The second strongest argument for redistribution is that it is sometimes intrinsically better if a poor, needy person has a resource, as opposed to a wealthier person having that same resource.  That is in fact what most people think, no matter what argument they give you.

3. As well see, the Rawlsian argument is parasitic upon #2, so why not use #2 directly?  Admittedly, #2 is a difficult conclusion to establish in a scientific manner, but the Rawlsian gloss, upon examination, makes it weaker not stronger.  It does however make the argument look a) more academic, and b) apparently more in line with neoclassical economic modes of thinking.

4. Most political philosophers, or indeed most philosophers, are not Rawlsians, even if they have been influenced by Rawls, which is frequently the case.  So why should you, if youre an economist, be a Rawlsian?  Is it that you read Rawls and the critics, sided with Rawls, and then sat down to derive its implications?  Or did you find it a convenient rationalization for something you already believed or wanted to believe?

4b. Rawls is almost always invoked selectively, rarely being applied across national borders or across the generations, cases where it yields screwy results.  Rawls himself hesitated to approve of economic growth, because it does not maximize the well-being of the original worst off generation, which of course has to do some saving.  He had sympathies with the idea of Mills stationary state.  Its fine to reject those conclusions, as indeed you should, but again maybe youre not really a Rawlsian.  You are a selective Rawlsian, if that.

4c. Most people rightly I might add believe just as much in redistribution or maybe more when the position of the unfortunates is certain in advance. How many times have you heard social immobility cited as a problem that requires redistribution for its solution?  That argument is fine on its own terms, but again were back to #2.  The funny thing about econo-Rawlsians is that they want to cite the uncertainty of the wealth distribution as a reason for redistribution, and then they wish to turn around and cite the certainty of the wealth distribution as yet another reason for redistribution!

Yes, maybe you can apply a Rawlsian transform to those situations...

Elvis's Own Personal Drug War "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Chris Calton
Nixon-Elvis-ap.jpg

When Elvis Presley died in 1977 from drug abuse, he was an official, badge-carrying federal agent for the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, an honorary appointment granted by President Richard Nixon.

To say that Elvis Presley had a respect for law enforcement is to drastically understate his enthusiasm. In another life, he would have liked to have been a police officer, and he was obsessed with collecting police badges and uniforms.

In some cases, he would offer a $5,000 donation to a police ball in order to procure a badge. He was also known to give expensive cars to local sheriffs, including Sherriff Bill Morris of Memphis who gratefully deputized Presley after receiving a gift of a Mercedes-Benz.

His generosity was so lavishly offered to members of the Denver police that it actually brought about suspicions of graft and corruption after the Kings death. Along with Cadillacs and Lincoln luxury cars, he paid for officers to take high-class vacations and gifted them with pricey jewelry. He purchased his own Denver police uniform and was made an honorary captain of the Denver Police Force. He would have been a police officer, Elvis once confided, but God blessed him with a voice.

In 1970, California senator George Murphy promised to get Elvis a meeting with FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD) director John Ingersoll. In both cases, Elvis was hoping that a generous private donation would be enough to buy him a federal badge from each of these departments.

Elvis never did get to meet Hoover, and when called the BNDD, Ingersoll was out of the office. He spoke, instead, to the number-two man of the Bureau, Deputy Director John Finlator. The deputy director was not swayed by Elviss fame or money and informed him that his department could neither accept donations nor issue honorary badges. Elviss offer was spurned.

Undeterred, Elvis penned a hand-written letter to President Nixon. In the letter, Elvis expressed his concerns for the drug culture, the hippie elements, the SDS [Students for a Dem...

Elivs's Own Personal Drug War "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Chris Calton
Nixon-Elvis-ap.jpg

When Elvis Presley died in 1977 from drug abuse, he was an official, badge-carrying federal agent for the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, an honorary appointment granted by President Richard Nixon.

To say that Elvis Presley had a respect for law enforcement is to drastically understate his enthusiasm. In another life, he would have liked to have been a police officer, and he was obsessed with collecting police badges and uniforms. When he would perform shows around the country, he always made an effort to obtain a badge from the local police force, sometimes by using his celebrity status and other times by donating money to police functions. In some cases, he would offer a $5,000 donation to a police ball in order to procure a badge. He was also known to give expensive cars to local sheriffs, including Sherriff Bill Morris of Memphis who gratefully deputized Presley after receiving a gift of a Mercedes-Benz.

Week in Review: September 23, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Mises Institute
Week in Review image

Almost a decade later, the Federal Reserve this week announced it will begin reversing quantitative easing. Slowly. Very slowly. The balance sheet currently stands at $4.5 trillion and they will begin allowing $10 billion in assets to roll off their sheets next month. Given the unprecedented nature of QE, even this modest reduction has many market observers on edge. Of course, the fallout from the Fed's actions are still being felt, while the Trump Treasury is making threats that it would have disastrous consequences if acted on.

On Mises Weekends, Jeff is joined by Dr. Mark Thornton to get his take on the Fed's actions and what it all means for stock markets, investors, and the US economy. Can quantitative easing, a roundabout form of monetizing debt, actually work? Can monetary policy make us rich? Or are Fed officials just groping in the dark, putting off a day of reckoning?

And in case you missed them, here are this weeks Mises Wire and FedWatch articles, covering a wide array of topics:

The Supreme Court Failed Us On Vietnam "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Jacob G. Hornberger
vietnam.PNG

With last weekss beginning of Ken Burns new documentary about the Vietnam War, the war will be brought back to the front burner for national discussion and debate.

There is one thing that is crystal clear and indisputable about the U.S. intervention into Vietnams civil war: The intervention was illegal under our form of government. Thats because it was waged in violation of the U.S. Constitution, the document that sets forth the powers of U.S. officials, including those in the military and the CIA.

When the federal government was called into existence by the Constitution, its powers were limited to those set forth in the document itself. If a power isnt enumerated, then it cannot lawfully be exercised.

The Constitution does not give the power to initiate war to the president. The Framers and the American people who ratified the Constitution did not want the president or the military making that decision. Thats why the Constitution delegates the power to declare war to Congress, the elected representatives of the American people.

Thus, if the president initiates war against another nation without a congressional declaration of war, he is acting unlawfully under our form of government.

The interesting question is: Why didnt the U.S. Supreme Court and the federal judiciary declare the U.S. war on North Vietnam to be unconstitutional?

Ever since the Supreme Courts decision in Marbury vs. Madison in 1803, the Court has assumed the authority and responsibility to declare acts of the president or laws enacted by Congress to be unconstitutional. And ever since Marbury, there have been many cases in which the federal courts have declared presidential actions or congressional laws unconstitutional.

Yet, when it came to U.S intervention into the Vietnam War, the federal judiciary declined to act. Why?

The issue was certainly clear-cut. The Constitution required a congressional declaration of war against North Vietnam. There was no congressional declaration of war against North Vietnam. Therefore, by initiating a war against North Vietnam, the president, the Pentagon, and the CIA were acting illegally under our form of constitutional government.

The federal judiciary has long rationalized its deference to the Pentagon and the CIA in terms of rhetoric like respect for the coordinate branches of the government or by suggesting that federal judges lack foreign-policy expertise or by simply asserting that a petitioners lacks standing to bring a legal action to dec...

There Are No Shortcuts to Enlightenment "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Answer Was Always in the Question

I read this bizarre and hilarious article from the NYT about flowsters in techno yurts trying to hack their minds and alter their neurotransmitters in order to reach ecstasy with great and gentle amusement.

Look. If its enlightenment you want, then hacking your brain is precisely the wrong way to go about it. First let me give you five methods, and then well discuss this thing called enlightenment, which is a frankly atrocious, pretentious word, a Western one, for the simple experience of pure awareness.

  1. Pick a Zen koan or a haiku. It doesnt matter which, any one, and just one. Heres one of my favorites. Go take a walk and see the thing its describing (a tree, a bird, whatever). Just see it. Dont think or not think. Be still of all mental action. Keep looking. Be patient. Repeat until one day, suddenly, you get it. This doesnt happen overnight, not usually in one, ten, or even a hundred sittings.
  2. Somethings hearing your inner chatter. Somethings seeing your mental pictures. What is that something? Just rest in it. Its a little like walking backwards getting there. Experience the part of you thats the observer, the witness. Then try to find the edges, the boundaries, the center, the end, the beginning, of that observer. Really try. Try for days, weeks, months. You will find that there arent any edges, ends, beginnings, centers. What is there, then? That is. Pure awareness.
  3. Try either of the above while youre doing yoga. Yes, yogas a nice form of exercise and relaxation. But more than that its a way to open your inner awareness. You are meant to see when you are doing it. Not look with your eyes. But see. So stop thinking about your miserable day, stop listening to your instructor, stop. Then, one day, youll feel something in you awakening. Let it grow.
  4. Warning. Dont try this one if youre depressed, ok? Itll mess with you. Dont even read it, skip it. Just rest and find the space in between your thoughts. Dont try or not try, just follow. Thoughts are like waves. They rise and fall. Just see where one begins, and ends. So trace them back to the source. Where does this thought lead? What is the space in between it and the next one? With a great deal of practice, you will find the purest essence of awareness. Its a clear light which shines through, not on, every phenomenal thing, in which everything arises, the ocean of being....

VICTORY IS OURS: Gold & Silver REFUSE to Drop a Handle "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Silver Doctors Friday Wrap: Sure, they have succeeded in smashing price lower on the week, but gold & silver refuse to drop a handle! WE GET THE VICTORY, and that will bother them even more than todays closing prices

First this (queue Rocky theme song):

 

 

Gold aint having $1200 and silver says get that $16 outta here!

Both precious metals hold, and close on the day both higher and above the key whole numbers.

Last Friday we put out this very scary silver chart:

 

 

It turned out to not be that scary of a movie at all. It was more like your typical teen-age slasher flick.

Still, it was pretty disgusting to watch:

 

 

In the above chart, it is easy to see that more and more selling volume is needed to keep the silver price suppressed. So far, 2017 has been nothing more than a monkey-hammering on the weekly, but looking at the volume of the last few weeks, compared to the last price attack, and compared to the attack before that, it looks like the volume is ready to pick up even more from here, but the more paper that gets thrown at silver, the more they can only get sideways choppy price action.

Heres what the volume looked like as they knocked exactly $1.00 off the price from the high to the low. The cartel was smashing the juice out of the hamburger all week long:

The Past and Future of Eudaimonia "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The Great Lesson of the Twentieth Century

Just discussing eudaimonia triggers a strange breed of American paranoia. About communism, central planning, the Constitution, and all the rest of it.

Lets talk about it for a second. These are actually good questions, as much as you might think Id hate them.

Guys. The cold wars over. Who won? No one.

Russia fell first, and now Americas on the ropes. Why is that? America and Russia had vastly different systems. Capitalism and socialism. But both systems operated under the same paradigm. Their goal was one and the same: maximizing output. They only did it in different ways. Soviet factories churned too little bread and too many crappy radios. American factories churn out too many reality TV shows and not enough healthcare. One is an error of ignoring markets, the other of obeying only markets. But in both cases, the paradigmatic goal is precisely the same: maximizing output. In neither case was attention given to the overarching problem: was any of this output actually lifting peoples quality of life? Output is just stuff. What a society depends on is whether or not that stuff yields realized human possibility.

The USSR began to stagnate for precisely this reason. It was employing people without realizing their possibility. It stagnated long enough that people began to get poor again, because when possibility isnt realized, it cant be rewarded. And when it isnt rewarded, then inequality spikes. Now the USA is stagnating in precisely the same way. The average person increasingly cant get basically functioning healthcare, education, transport, and so on. That also means that those who are providing all thatteachers, bus drivers, just basic average peopleare vastly underrewarded. So there is a general fall in living standards, quality of life, and incomes. The great irony of the twentieth century is that the two great enemies were both one and the same.

So. Eudaimonia has nothing to do with isms. Conservatism, liberalism, communism, whatever. Put your politics aside. Eudaimonia is bigger than that. It asks a primary question: what is the end that we want for a human organization? What do we want people to live? Do we want them to be healthy, happy, sane? Or do we want them to be gentle, kind, loving? Or both, all? Or none? Once weve sorted out the ends, then we can discuss means. The means are isms. Liberalism says here is one me...

If Hillary had been elected, we probably would all be dead by now. Trump, now the captive of the military/security complex, is being pushed into the conflict with Russia that Hillary advocated, so the danger has been resurrected.

Washington needs to set aside its hubris and arrogance long enough to remember what hubris and arrogance did to the powerful militaries of Napoleon and Hitler. Larchmonters two rules of warfare are sound: http://thesaker.is/two-rules-of-warfare-1-never-march-on-moscow-and-2-never-march-on-moscow/

Londons Uber ban is a big Brexit mistake "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

That is the title given to my latest Bloomberg column.  Excerpt:

The new Britain appears to be a nationalistic, job-protecting, quasi-mercantilist entity, as evidenced by the desire to preserve the work and pay of Londons traditional cabbies. Thats hardly the right signal to send to a world considering new trade deals or possibly foreign investment in the U.K. Uber, of course, is an American company, and it did sink capital into setting up in London and its reputational capital is on the line in what is still Europes most economically important city. This kind of slap in the face wont exactly encourage other market entrants, including in the dynamic tech sector that London so desperately seeking.

I should note that I prefer London cabs, because of their higher quality service, noting that the people most hurt by this ban are from lower-income groups.

Did the Great Recession reduce the US birth rate? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

A few years ago it was conventional wisdom that the Great Recession reduced Americas birth rate.  Thats possible, but its striking how little evidence there is for that claim.  Its true that the birth rate declined between 2007 and 2010, but we all know that correlation doesnt prove causation.  And theres a lot of evidence pointing in the opposite direction.  Heres one popular measure of the birth rate:

Now lets consider all of the evidence against the claim that the Great Recession reduced Americas birth rate:

1. Rich countries tend to have much lower birth rates than poor countries.  So poverty doesnt seem to reduce birth rates.

2.  If you prefer time series evidence; the US birth rate has trended down for 100 years, even as weve become much richer.

3.  Its true that the birth rate fell during the 1930s, but it fell much faster during the booming 1920s.  It fell especially sharply during 1955-73, one of the very best periods ever for having big nuclear families with stay at home moms.  The birth rate was flat during the bad period of 1979-83, when unemployment soared to 10.8%, but fell during the booming 1990s.  Go figure.

4.  In 2016, the birth rate declined in 2016 to the lowest rate ever, despite one of the fastest 2-year growth spurts in real median household income ever seen in US data:

There may be a slight lag in the impact of the economy on the birth rate, but if we dont see a sharp rise in the birth rate in 2017, then we may need to revise the conventional wisdom on the Great Recession.

5.  The birth rate decline has been far sharper for teens than for other groups:

In the United States, teen-aged moms are increasingly rare. In 2016, the teen birth rate dropped 9% compared to the previous year, a new gover...

The Demise of the Dollar: Dont Hold Your Breath "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The demise of the U.S. dollar has been a staple of the financial media for decades. The latest buzzword making the rounds is de-dollarization, which describes the move away from USD in global payments.

De-dollarization is often equated with the demise of the dollar, but this reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of the currency markets.

Look, I get it: the U.S. dollar arouses emotions because its widely seen as one of the more potent tools of U.S. hegemony. Lots of people are hoping for the demise of the dollar, for all sorts of reasons that have nothing to do with the actual flow of currencies or the role of currencies in the global economy and foreign exchange (FX) markets.

So there is a large built-in audience for any claim that the dollar is on its deathbed.

I understand the emotional appeal of this, but investors and traders cant afford to make decisions on the emotional appeal of superficial claimsnot just in the FX markets, but in any markets.

So lets ground the discussion of the demise of the USD in some basic fundamentals. Now would be a good time to refill your beverage/drip-bag because were going to cover some dynamics that require both emotional detachment and focus.

First, forget what currency were talking about. If the USD raises your hackles, then substitute quatloos for USD.

There are three basic uses for currency:

1. International payments. This can be thought of as flow: if I buy a load of bat guano and the seller demands payment in quatloos, I convert my USD to quatloosa process that is essentially real-timerender payment, and Im done with the FX part of the transaction.

It doesnt matter what currency I start with or what currency I convert my payment into to satisfy the sellerI only hold that currency long enough to complete the transaction: a matter of seconds.

If sellers demand I use quatloos, pesos, rubles or RMB for those few moments, the only thing that matters is the availability of the currency and the exchange rate in those few moments.

2. Foreign reserves. Nation-states keep reserves for a variety of reasons, one being to support their own currency if imbalances occur that push their currency in unwanted directi...

Why Amazon Won't Choose New Hampshire "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Amazon Headquarters in Seattle - Photo by Adamajreynolds

According to the Concord Monitor, Governor Sununu is aggressively pursuing the online retailer Amazon.com, which is looking to open a second global headquarters that could employ as many as 50,000 people.

New Hampshire is a great place for business, with low taxes and regulation, not to mention thousands of productive Free Staters moving in. Business taxes are decreasing, and they can be be offset with the Education Tax Credit. So should New Hampshire pitch to Amazon? Why not! Andrew Cline of the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy writes,

Reaching out and talking up New Hampshires many charms is perfectly fine. But we should never cross the line between marketing the state and giving a big company special treatment that New Hampshires mom-and-pop businesses dont get.

But states arent likely to take Clines approach as they bid for Amazons business. Many will promise millions in taxpayer-funded subsidies, which Amazon expects. Eli Sanders at The Stranger translates Amazons message to interested locales this way,

If you want to be the new home of Amazon's HQ2, you need to offer Amazon some major, taxpayer-financed subsidies. Those taxpayer-financed subsidies may have to be so big that it'll take an act of your state's publicly elected legislature to make them happen.

Why is Amazon looking elsewhere? Some see the search as a publicity stunt, but The Seattle Times sees it as a wake-up call, Seattles current political leaders must rec...

There's a Bubble in New York City Taxi Medallions "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Doug French
istock.PNG

Its as old as time: taking on debt to fund a sure thing. Be it houses, stocks, cryptocurrencies, tulip bulbs or taxi medallions. Winnie Hu tells the current tale of woe brilliantly for The New York Times. Big city taxi medallions were once considered to be good as gold. Ms. Hu writes,

Sohan Gill once saw his medallion as such a good investment better than a house that his wife bought two more in 2001. Now they cannot find enough drivers for the cabs because business is so bad. And Mr. Gill, 63, who had retired from driving, had to go back on the road. How many more years am I going to drive to take care of these medallions? he asked.

That sounds so much like Las Vegas 2005. Why own one house? Buy two more. Now retirement is put on hold.

A full blown medallion crash is unraveling in New York City as Ms. Hu explains.

Since 2015, a total of 85 medallions have been sold as part of foreclosure proceedings, according to city records. In August alone, 12 of the 21 medallion sales were part of foreclosures; the prices of all the sales ranged from $150,000 to $450,000 per medallion.

A medallion being essentially a license to drive a cab, $150,000 to $450,000 doesnt seem like the bottom, however at the peak. 2014, a medallion went for $1.3 million. By the way, Uber was founded in 2009, but New York cab owners either didnt get the memo, or didn't understand the implications.

In 2014, those crafty devils at New York City Hall sold 350 new medallions at the height of the market, generating $359 million in revenue.

The city has capped the number of medallions at 13,587, but, There are more than 63,000 black cars providing rides in the city through five major app services: Uber, Lyft, Via, Gett and Juno, writes Hu.

Cabbies are fighting back the way they always have, in court. But so far, to no avail. We are not against competition, we are not against technology, but we want to compete fair and square, said Nino Hervias, 58, a taxi owner and spokesman for the Taxi Medallion Owner Driver Associ...

Five Things to Learn From Ubers Implosion "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

How to Fail at the Future

By now, you might have heard: continuing a long string of jaw-dropping mishaps, Uber lost its license to operate in London. Lets talk about it for a moment, because I think its a perfect mini case study in failing at the future.

Ubers big mistake wasnt losing its license, it was having poor eudaimonics. By eudaimonics, I mean a things effects on life: on well-being, real wealth, and human possibility. And Uber is the poster child for poor eudaimonics, the canonical example of the old paradigm failing. How?

Some organizations try hard to expand well-being. Uber seems to have mastered the art of suffocating it. No, really. Lets count the ways. It essentially takes well-being from its drivers, shortchanging them of what Americans call benefits, and the rest of the world calls basic rights (to healthcare, pensions, and so on), working against their every kind of flourishing. It manipulates information to leave societies, drivers, and customers in the dark. And of course it famously built a culture where harassment and abuse appear to be the norm. All these are kinds of human possibility, potential well-being, being...

Activists Take End-the-Blockade Message to Washington, DC: Show Solidarity with Cuba "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Last weeks highly successful third annual Days of Action Against the Blockade in Washington, D.C., has helped raise new awareness about the damaging impact the failed 56-year U.S. blockade of Cuba has had on the health not only of Cubans but also of Americans, says Alicia Jrapko, the U.S. coordinator of the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity, which organized the events.

It wasnt easy. Although the U.S. government did ultimately grant visas so Cuban guests could travel to Washington to participate (the U.S. government has often previously denied such visas, or granted them after events), Hurricane Irma then played havoc with their travel schedules. Organizers were forced to scramble, rearranging flights and accommodation several times before the delegation finally landed in Washington via Los Angeles in time to take part in the jam-packed week of activities.

That Cuban Sonic Weapon Mystery Just Became More Mysterious "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Joseph P. Farrell

If youve been following that strange mystery surrounding the so-called sonic weapon attacks on the American embassy in Havana, Cuba, then the story just became a whole lot stranger with this article that was discovered and shared by Mr. B:

US diplomat in Cuba claims he was attacked in bed after walking through some invisible wall

What intrigues me here is a hypothesis I first advanced a few days ago in another blog on this mystery, namely, that this story might somehow be related to the strange ramming incidents of U.S. naval vessels the John McCain and the Fitzgerald which occurred near Singapore and Japan, respectively.

Theres a bit more information in this article that might tend to corroborate my high octane speculations in this regard. In my previous speculations, I have entertained various ideas that might account for the strange rammings of the missile frigates, namely (1) some sort of directed interference upon the electronics systems of the ships, via either (a) remote electromagnetic targeting of specific systems or (b) hacking of the systems through compromised hardware and/or software,; or (c) remote triggering of covertly implanted flaws in the hardware or commands in the software. But Ive also advanced the idea that (2) one might not rule out the idea that the crews of the ships themselves were targeted by some sort of mind manipulation technologies. Recall in this respect that one member of the Fitzgerald stated that he felt mystified, a state of mind indicating confusion, inability to take decisions, and perhaps even confusion over reading whatever electronic equipment he might have been responsible for. The Navy seems to have opted for an incompetence and inadequate training explanation, as youll recall, but it is to be noted that this explanation could be masking precisely the more sinister possibility of mind manipulation technologies.

So back to Mr. B.s shared article. Consider the following:

Aside from their homes, officials said Americans were attacked in at least one hotel, a fact not previously disclosed. An incident occurred on an upper floor of the recently...

Another Cost of Global Warming "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This paper documents a small but systematic bias in the patent evaluation system at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO): external weather variations affect the allowance or rejection of patent applications. I examine 8.8 million reject/allow decisions from 3.5 million patent applications to the USPTO between 2001 and 2014, and find that on unusually warm days patent allowance rates are higher and final rejection rates are lower than on cold days. I also find that on cloudy days, final rejection rates are lower than on clear days. I show that these effects constitute a decision-making bias which exists even after controlling for sorting effects, controlling for applicant-level, application-level, primary class-level, art unit-level, and examiner- level characteristics. The bias even exists after controlling for the quality of the patent applications. While theoretically interesting, I also note that the effect sizes are relatively modest and may not require policy changes from the USPTO. Yet, the results are strong enough to provide a potentially useful instrumental variable for future innovation research.

The Agony of the Welfare State, Finnish Style "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Joseph T. Salerno
childrens-eyes-1914519_960_720.jpg

The title of this post minus the reference to Finland is shamelessly copped from a prescient essay that Ludwig von Mises wrote in 1953.  In his article Mises pointed out that in Great Britain and Europe, the system of progressive taxation was already confiscating nearly the entire surplus incomes of the successful capitalists and entrepreneurs, meaning that higher tax rates would no longer produce additional funds to finance these countries ever-expanding welfare states. Henceforth, Mises foretold, the funds of the beneficiaries themselves have to be tapped if more handouts are to be made to them.

Today things have gotten far worse than even Mises foresaw. For now it is becoming evident that the beneficiaries of the most advanced welfare states are not reproducing rapidly enough to pay for the benefits that they are receiving and are therefore endangering the long-term survival of the more generous welfare states. A notable example is Finland, which faces a massive baby problem. Thus, in 2016, Finland recorded the lowest number of newborn babies in 148 years, or since the great famine of 1868. The Finnish fertility rate has fallen to 1.57 per woman and the number of people under 20 years of age as a percentage of the working age population is the lowest among Nordic countries at less than 40%, down from 60% in 1970. 

The situation has left mainstream economists devoid of solutions and wringing their hands in despair. For Heidi Schauman, the Aktia Bank chief economist, the statistics are "frightening. As Ms. Schauman explains:

They show how fast our society is changing, and we don't have solutions ready to stop the development.  We have a large public sector and the system needs taxpayers in the future.

Schauman clearly does not appreciate the delicious irony of the modern welfare state revealed in the emphasized part of her statement. Without the ability to further expropriate wealthy capitalists and entrepreneurs, the welfare state has become a crazy machine with no purpose but to perpetuate its own existence by devouring massive quantities of taxes extracted from the people it ostensibly serves. If demographic trends threaten the existence of the machine, well then, more people...

8.3 million people in UK with debt problems
2.2 million people in UK are in financial distress
President Trump land there is a savings gap of $70 trillion
Global problem as pensions gap of developed countries growing by $28B per day

Editor: Mark OByrne

There is a 1 trillion debt time bomb hanging over the United Kingdom. We are nearing the end of the timebombs long fuse and it looks set to explode in the coming months.

No one knows how to diffuse the 1 trillion bomb and who should be taking responsibility. It is made up of two major components.

  • 710 billion is the terrifying size of the UK pensions deficit
  • 200 billion is the amount of dynamite in the consumer credit time bomb

How did the sovereign nation that is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland get itself so deep in the red?

This is not a problem that is bore only by the Brits. In the rest of the developed world a $70 trillion pensions deficit hangs heavy.

We are all in this boat because we apparently didnt learn from the massive man made crisis that was the 2008 financial crisis.

The we is referring to UK individuals who are on average holding 14,367 of debt. It refers to the pension fund managers who are ignoring the fact they hold more liabilities than assets. It refers to banks and mortgage and loan providers who give loans to people who are already indebted and who will struggle to pay the debt back. It refers to a compliant media who do not have ask hard questions about irresponsible lending practices and cheer lead property bubbles due to getting significant revenues from the banking and property sectors.

And,  ultimately the we is the government who peddled such terrible monetary policy that it has brought us as close to nuclear financial disaster as we have been since 2008.

In a meeting on the sidelines of the UNGA in New York, BRICS Foreign Ministers said they will seek to gather global support for reforming the world body.

BRICS nations have stressed on the need for a comprehensive reform of the UN, including its Security Council, with a view to making it more representative, said a joint statement.

Britain, France, Russia, China and the US are veto-wielding members of the UNSC.

BRICS members, India, South Africa and Brazil have bid for permanent membership of the UNSC.

The BRICS statement on Thursday said the UNSC  must increase the representation of the developing countries so that it can adequately respond to global challenges.

China and Russia reiterate the importance they attach to the status and role of Brazil, India and South Africa in international affairs and support their aspiration to play a greater role in the UN, the statement added.

The UNSC, which has powers to authorize military action, impose sanctions and set up peacekeeping operations, has 10 rotating members. The US, China, Russia, France and Britain are permanent members which wield a veto.

With more than 80 per cent of issues taken up by the Security Council relating to African affairs and not a single permanent member from Africa, the UN has battled with issues of legitimacy and representativeness.

The 54-nation African continent has a representation of only three non-permanent members without veto power in the UNSC.

Slower turnover for songs and movies "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

From my email:

Hi, Mr. Cowen. I recently read The Complacent Class recently and enjoyed it. Im writing because theres an another example of American complacency thats only come to light in recent weeks

Specifically: the Billboard music charts..

Shape of You by Ed Sheeran last week broke the record for most weeks in top 10, with 33 weeks. The song it beat, Closer by The Chainsmokers and Halsey, set the previous record less than a year ago. http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/chart-beat/7948959/ed-sheeran-shape-of-you-record-most-weeks-top-ten

(And yet another song in last weeks top 10, Thats What I Like by Bruno Mars, currently holds the 8th-longest record on that metric and potentially still rising.)

Meanwhile, Despacito by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee, and Justin Bieber tied the all-time record with its 16th week at #1: http://www.billboard.com/biz/articles/news/record-labels/7942315/luis-fonsi-daddy-yankee-justin-biebers-despacito-ties-for

Meanwhile, the biggest country song in the nation right now, Body Like a Back Road by Sam Hunt, is currently in its record-extending 30th week at #1 on the Hot Country Songs chart: http://www.billboard.com/files/pdfs/country_update_0905.pdf

This did not happen in decades past. Look at the Billboard charts from the 80s it was a new #1 song almost every week!    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Billboard_Hot_100_number-one_singles_of_the_1980s

Just like how you describe in your book how people are moving less and want to stay in the same town where they were before, or how theyre switching jobs less and want to stay in the same job where they were before, people apparently just want to listen to the same songs theyve been listening to already.

Why is NASA Covering Up Elon Musks Mistakes? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By: Drew Armstrong
Elon_Musk_in_Mission_Control_at_SpaceX.jpg

On June 28th, 2015, Elon Musks SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket launched a Dragon resupply ship not into space, but rather into the Atlantic Ocean. It was a catastrophic failure that cost taxpayers $112 million. The payload that was meant to resupply the International Space Station (ISS) went up in a huge plume of smoke and flames. However, even though SpaceX did not complete their mission, they still received all but 20 percent of the full payment. Standard NASA protocol is to release a report on every launch accident, but to this day  two years later  there is still no formal statement as to what went wrong on the SpaceX accident.

Per NASA, there wont be one released anytime soon. The Agency recently announced that it will in fact not publicly release a report on their investigation into the disastrous explosion of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. They had originally committed to reporting their results by the summer of 2017, but have instead passed the buck to the FAA.

On Oct. 28th, 2014, an Orbital Sciences Antares rocket was loaded with NASA Supplies aboard a Cygnus cargo ship worth $51 million bound for the ISS. Upon lift-off, the booster exploded, and the payload was lost, severely damaging the launch pad. Just like the SpaceX flight, the Orbital rocket was an official FAA-Licensed commercial launch. Both the Antares and the Falcon 9 launches were conducted under the same NASA Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) program. And just like the Falcon 9, the Antares was part of an expiring line of rockets. Yet, NASA complete...

The Demise of the Dollar: Don't Hold Your Breath "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

So let's look at currency flows, reserves and debt.
The demise of the U.S. dollar has been a staple of the financial media for decades. The latest buzzword making the rounds is de-dollarization, which describes the move away from USD in global payments.
De-dollarization is often equated with the demise of the dollar, but this reflects a fundamental misunderstanding of the currency markets.
Look, I get it: the U.S. dollar arouses emotions because it's widely seen as one of the more potent tools of U.S. hegemony. Lots of people are hoping for the demise of the dollar, for all sorts of reasons that have nothing to do with the actual flow of currencies or the role of currencies in the global economy and foreign exchange (FX) markets.

Youve Never Seen Anything Like This

Dear Reader,

Unless youre one of the lucky few to buy an Internet stock in the 1980s, youve never had an opportunity like this.

When we began covering Bitcoin at $13 in 2012, I wanted to find a publicly-traded vehicle to make it easy for our members to have exposure.

Little did I know at the time that it would take another 5 years to find a legitimate opportunity. 

Keep in mind that back in 2012, it wasnt easy to buy and sell Bitcoin I had to personally meet a guy at a local Starbucks with $10,000 of cash in my pocket to do my first transaction.

Then, in 2017, due to my own laziness, I lost about $40,000 in Bitcoin that was parked in an exchange whose domain was seized by the U.S.

Here is the thing with Bitcoin: you need to keep it in cold storage, off the exchanges, and protect it well.

Its not as turnkey as many of us would like, simply due to the fact that its still in its infancy, though much has happened since it was introduced and released into the world in 2009. Of course, what many of us have desired is an easy, safe, and secure way to have exposure to the sector without the hassle of having to keep track of a 24-word passcode or cold storage key. 

This is why I think HIVE Blockchain Technologies is so important.

I want to have direct exposure to not only the top cryptocurrencies, I want to be part of a business that is literally at the heart of the blockchain itself specifically Ethereum
 
For Ethereum, we predict that it will surpass Bitcoin in market size within the next 6 months!

Ethereum is to the blockchain what Google is to the Internet.

How the US Became a Warmonger Police State

Paul Craig Roberts

Professor David Ray Griffin is a tenacious person. He has written a number of carefully researched books that demonstrate the extraordinary shortcomings in the official account of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the subsequent anthrax attack. He has provided the mountains of evidence completely ignored by the US governments account and the presstitute media.

In his recently published latest book, Bush and Cheney: How They Ruined America and the World , Professor Griffin demonstrates how 9/11 was used by the Zionist Neoconservatives, the Cheney/Bush regime, and the military/security complex with the complicity of Congress and the US media to create Islamophobia among the American public in order to launch wars of aggression against Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and provinces of Pakistan with Iran in the crosshairs. These wars are based on lies and fabricated evidence, on determination to control pipelines and oil flows, on maximizing profits for the military/security corporations in which Cheney has a personal interest, and on extending neoconservative hegemony over the world.

One consequence has been the destruction of US constitutional protections that protect liberty and violations of US and international law such as the laws against torture.

Another consequence has been millions of displaced refugees from Washingtons wars over-running the countries of Europe.

Indeed, Europe faces a Camp of the Saints situation, and the US now has a police state in which all citizens are subject to: indefinite detention (imprisonment) on suspicion alone without conviction or evidence presented to a court; assassination on suspicion alone without due process of law; and total violation of privacy, including body cavities, without presentation of a court warrant. American women are now subjected to having their vaginas examined by police in public on the roadside.

The hoax war on terror has turned America into a Gestapo state. Not many Americans directly experience the consequences, but they will be denied valid information as the Gestapo American state closes down all dissent on the grounds that it is harmful to national security. People who speak their minds will find that they no longer have First Amendment protection.

Every passing day truth is less and less prevalent in the United States. Democratic control over the government is already nonexistent. Essentially, Americans live in the Fourth Reich which has already budded and is now blossoming.

Wars and their expense will continue to multiply as the military/security complex uses manufactured threats to cont...

    • Trump's UN speech stuns the world
  • Unpacking The Latest Fedspeak

  • The High Cost Of Lacking Resilience
    • Harvy, Irma & Maria are teaching us a lesson in real-time

This week Chris and John tackle the latest Fed announcement. Yellen's talk of tightening/normalizing -- to borrow from common parlance -- is really a "nothingburger" until the world's other major central banks curtail their stimulus efforts.

The world economy is still receiving $125 billion in liquidity injections every month. This, of course, has destroyed the integrity of the markets and turned all investors into speculators -- as whatever the central banks decide to do next is the only thing that will matter to prices.

As we have been warning for years, this will all end badly once the central banks have either destroyed their respective zombie economies or their fiat currencies (if not both).

The US National Hurricane Center said catastrophic flooding was sweeping parts of the island.

Maria is moving away from Puerto Rico, weakening to a category two storm.

When we are able to go outside, we are going to find our island destroyed, Mr Gmez was quoted as saying by the El Nuevo Dia newspaper.

Its a system that has destroyed everything in its path.

The US territorys governor, Ricardo Rossello, issued a curfew for 18:00 local time (22:00 GMT) on Wednesday evening through early Saturday morning.

No Moderation In Washington, War is the only Virtue "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

No Moderation In Washington, War is the only Virtue

Iranian Presidents UN Address

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org Home Stephen Lendman)

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is a distinguished figure, supporting world peace, deploring war polar opposite his Western counterparts.

On Wednesday, he addressed the UN General Assembly in New York, speaking forthrightly, explaining his agenda calls for moderation and respect for human rights and prosperity and economic revitalization at home, and constructive engagement around the world.

US and Israeli accusations against his nation are malicious, hateful and false, a way to attack its sovereign independence, inventing reasons to justify whats vicious and unjustifiable.

(M)oderation isthe chosen path of the great Iranian people, Rouhani stressed, seek(ing) neither isolation nor hegemony impl(ying) neither indifference, nor intransigence.

(M)oderation is the path of peace, an anathema agenda in Washington, other Western states, Israel and their rogue allies.

Iran threatens no one, Rouhani explained. It seeks mutual cooperation with all other nations. It rejects intimidation and threats.

Its impossible to achieve global peace and stability while Muslims in Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain, Afghanistan, Myanmar and so many other places live in misery, war and poverty, he said US imperial ruthlessness the root cause in most places.

Iran is committed to combat terrorism, not support or spread it like Washington and its rogue allies. Accusations otherwise are malicious lies. Tehrans leadership has no imperial ambitions.

It abhors nuclear weapons. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) bears testimony to wanting these WMDs eliminated regionally and globally.

It is reprehensible that the rogue Zionist regime that threatens regional and global security with its nuclear arsenal and is not committed to any international instrument or safeguard, has the audacity to preach to peaceful nations like Iran, Rouhani stressed.

Tehran strictly observes JCPOA terms. Itll respond decisively and resolutely to its violation by any other party.

Trump wants the agreement rescinded, undermined or renegotiated. He decided on what action hell take, not yet revealing his scheme clearly something to sabotage an international treaty, how Washington operates unaccountably.
