Jason Chaffetz has just published a new book entitled The Deep State. This is something he knows a lot about because he has faced them head on and eventually was chased out of Congress some say because of Deep State threats to his family. This morning on Fox & Friend, Chaffetz made a startling revelation that on behalf of the Congressional Oversight Committee, he went to see Attorney General Jeff Session to see if he would prosecute Hillary Clintons IT person at the State Department. Sessions said no. Chaffetz said, Why? Sessions responded: Because he was too close to Hillary. Watch the Fox & Friends regulars go slack-jawed, dumbfounded by the admission that Hillary Clinton - is not to be trifled with. SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: -- Nobel Gold.

According to a story tonight in The True Pundit, by Thomas Paine a previously-reliable reporter - during their final days inside the FBI Headquarters Building, Peter Strzok and Andrew McCabe were caught red-handed attempting to destroy incriminating FBI files from their own work computers. Are these guys nuts? Dont they know that every employer but especially the FBI or any of the intelligence agencies monitors and records every keystroke from every computer. I suspect that what these guys were destroying was so damaging that they decided they just had to take the risk. Do they not know that nothing and I mean NOTHING can never be destroyed in the big business or big government world. Anyone who says the data is lost and unrecoverable is lying.

7 Ways to Build the Solidarity Economy "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The solidarity economy is a global movement to build a post-capitalist world that puts people and planet front and centre, rather than the pursuit of blind growth and profit maximisation. It isnt a blueprint but a framework that includes a broad range of economic practices that align with its values: solidarity, participatory democracy, equity in every dimension including race, class and gender, sustainability and pluralism, which means that it cant be a one-size-fits all approach. Nevertheless, the notion of buen vivir, or living well and in harmony with nature and each other permeates everything the movement does.

Some of these practices are old and some are new; some are mainstream and others are alternative. Solidarity economy practices exist in every sector of the economy: production, distribution and exchange, consumption, finance and governance/state. People often think about cooperatives and credit unions which are collectively owned and managed by their members, but they are just one example. Others include community land trusts, participatory budgeting, social currencies, time banks, peer lending, barter systems, gift exchange, community gardens, ideas around the commons, some kinds of fair trade and the sharing economy, and non-monetised care work.

Unintended consequences are a bane of mankind and must be considered and, hopefully, anticipated.

The Trumpian Bull And The Policy Bull Beneath "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Then, lets take it one step further and examine what U.S. financial asset outperformance has meant for Central Bank policy. At the margin, the fact that the Fed also tunes to financial condition has caused the Federal Reserve to be marginally more hawkish than would otherwise been the case, This has caused even more capital to be attracted to the U.S., meaning the U.S. dollar has been bid even higher.

So the end result of the tax reform bill has been a massive bid to U.S. financial assets as money has ploughed in from all over the world.

A Win for Justice "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Congratulations to the Institute for Justice for an important victory against the abuse of civil asset forfeiture:

Today, the Institute for Justice dismantled one of the nations largest and most egregious civil forfeiture programs.  For decades, Philadelphias forfeiture machine terrorized its citizens:  throwing them out of their homes without notice, seizing their cars and other property, and forcing victims to navigate a rigged kangaroo court system to have any chance of getting their property back.  And the property and money forfeited was then given to the very officials who were supposed to be fairly enforcing the law.
After four long years of litigation, IJ cemented a victory for all Philadelphians this morning with two binding consent decrees in which city officials agreed to reforms that:
    1.  Sharply limit when Philadelphia law enforcement can forfeit property;
    2.  Prevent law enforcement from keeping what they seize;
    3.  Establish robust protections for the due process rights of citizens; and
    4.  Create a $3 million fund to compensate innocent people who were ensnared by the citys abusive system.
My paper, To Serve and Collect (with Makowsky and Stratmann) suggests that this victory will not only reduce civil asset forfeiture it will also change police behavior and decision-making, altering the number, type, and racial composition of arrests.

Here They Go Again:Thompson-Reuters $17 billion Spin-Off Is 2007 Style LBO "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Debt being 7.6 times the size of annual cash flow is high and very risky for lenders.. Moodys also laments Refinitivs sub-par organic revenue growth that ranged from -1% to +1%, while the major competitors consistently produced higher organic revenue growth in the 5-10% range. And the companys EBITDA margins are below peers, suggesting the absence of pricing power and limited ability to achieve meaningful share gains, Moodys says.

But none of these fundamentals matter to investors. These institutional investors such as pension funds, insurance companies, loan funds, etc. are eager to buy this debt to get some extra yield, no matter what the risks or consequences, because the party must go on.

An evolutionary theory for the variability hypothesis "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

An elementary mathematical theory based on selectivity is proposed to address a question raised by Charles Darwin, namely, how one gender of a sexually dimorphic species might tend to evolve with greater variability than the other gender. Briefly, the theory says that if one sex is relatively selective then from one generation to the next, more variable subpopulations of the opposite sex will tend to prevail over those with lesser variability; and conversely, if a sex is relatively non-selective, then less variable subpopulations of the opposite sex will tend to prevail over those with greater variability. This theory makes no assumptions about differences in means between the sexes, nor does it presume that one sex is selective and the other non-selective. Two mathematical models are presented: a discrete-time one-step statistical model using normally distributed fitness values; and a continuous-time deterministic model using exponentially distributed fitness levels.

That is from a new paper by Theodore P. Hill, via Derek.  Here is some of the history behind the paper, which ended up being spiked.  And here is Andrew Gelmans take.  Here are relevant emails to the dispute.

The Patriarchs of American Collapse "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

American Masculinity is Badly Brokenand its Produced a Culture of Abuse

Its a list so long that I can barely keep track. Louis CK, Les Moonves, Harvey Weinstein, Jim Jordan, John Hockenberry, Brett Kavanaugh (allegedly, to this point)many, many more.

Of the many things I think that Americans dont quite see, about their own declining status and position in the world today, none strikes me more often, or as much, some days, as this. Americans live in a uniquely abusive society and culture. One that isnt just singularly explicitly violentguns and murdersbut one where cruelty of less visible sorts, what would be considered deeply abusive behaviour of all kinds in other countries, is perfectly normal. Often, it isnt just toleratedits encouraged and rewarded, endemic and systemic, chronic and more or less unavoidable. Being abused in America is just the price of getting through the day, for most Americans, by nowand I wonder how many of them know it.

Hence, not quite knowing they are being abused, yet many Americans will defend their way of life to the teeth. If I say to you, are the men above bad guys?, youll probably reply: yes. And yet if I say to you, then dont you think that America has a special problem of being abusive?, then you will probablyeven if you are a generally decent and sane personvehemently object. Youll probably say: its like that everywhere!

No, my friend. It is not like that everywhere. It is not like that almost anywhere elseapart from maybe the Middle Eastern societies American culture so despises. That long, long list of abusive men is nonexistent in every other rich country in the worldand most poor ones, too. That doesnt mean that abuse doesnt exist elsewherebut I doubt, and you should doubt, that the people of the rich world are even more frightened and bewildered than Americans, and therefore, abuse at the same level, at the same scale, exists elsewhere too, only more deeply hidden.

Why would all those other countries give workplace harassment and abuse a free pass, when they are much less tolerant of every other kind of discrimination and violence? When they are much better at tackling every other kind of social problem, from crime to inequality to poverty? When women are far better represented in government, usually? You see my point, perhaps. Either we must believe the nonsensical idea that every other rich country is now more advanced than America in every way except men abusing women, there they lag behind, and America leadsor we believe a much more credible proposition: America lags behind the world precisely because it is so abusive, violent, and cruel.

Perhaps you will find it more obvious if I put it another way, thoug...

The rant against Amazon and the rant for Amazon "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Wow! Its unbelievable how hard you are working to deny that monopsony and monopoly type market concentration is causing all all these issues. Do you think its easy to compete with Amazon? Think about all the industries amazon just thought about entering and what that did to the share price of incumbents. Do you think Amazon doesnt use its market clout and brand name to pay people less? Dont the use the same to extract incentives from politicians? Corporate profits are at record highs as a percent of the economy, how is that maintained? What is your motivation for closing your eyes and denying consolidation? It doesnt seem that you are being logical.

That is from a Steven Wolf, from the comments.  You might levy some justified complaints about Amazon, but this passage packs a remarkable number of fallacies into a very small space.

First, monopsony and monopoly tend to have contrasting or opposite effects.  To the extent Amazon is a monopsony, that leads to higher output and lower prices.

Second, if Amazon is knocking out incumbents that may very well be good for consumers.  Consumers want to see companies that are hard for others to compete with.  Otherwise, they are just getting more of the same.

Third, if you consider markets product line by product line, there are very few sectors where Amazon would appear to have much market power, or a very large share of the overall market for that good or service.

Fourth, Amazon is relatively strong in the book market.  Yet if a book is $28 in a regular store, you probably can buy it for $17 on Amazon, or for cheaper yet used, through Amazon.

Fifth, Amazon takes market share from many incumbents (nationwide) but it does not in general knock out the labor market infrastructure in most regions.  That means Amazon hire labor by paying it more or otherwise offering better working conditions, however much you might wish to complain about them.

Sixth, if you adjust for the nature of intangible capital, and the difference between economic and accounting profit, it is not clear corporate profits have been so remarkably high as of late.

Seventh, if Amazon extracts lower taxes and an improved Metro system from the DC area, in return for coming here, that is a net Pareto improvement or in any case at least not obviousl...

Russia and Turkey to create buffer zone in Idlib "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-45554188

Russia and Turkey have agreed to create a demilitarised buffer zone in Syrias Idlib province to separate government forces from rebel fighters based there.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said it would be 15km to 25km (9-15 miles) wide and come into force by 15 October.

Troops from Russia, an ally of Syrias government, and Turkey, which backs the rebels, will patrol the zone.

The UN had warned of a humanitarian catastrophe if the Syrian army launched an all-out assault to retake Idlib.

But after Mondays meeting between Mr Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Sochi, Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu said the deal meant there would be no such operation in the region.

The Russian president said that under the deal, all heavy weaponry, including tanks, rocket launch systems and mortar launchers operated by rebel groups would need to be pulled out of the buffer zone by 10 October.

What is the FCC hiding? Court orders agency to release info about who submitted fake comments during net neutrality repeal "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, September 18, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

Reports today show that a DC District Court judge has ordered the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to disclose previously-unreleased information that will assist the public in understanding how millions of fake comments were submitted to the FCC using stolen names and addresses during the agencys 2017 proceeding to repeal net neutrality. Digital rights group Fight for the Future, who was among the first to launch an investigation into the fake comments and have long called for a full investigation into the fake comments submitted onto the agencys net neutrality docket, welcomes the courts decision as a positive step forward for those who had their names fraudulently placed onto the FCCs record.

The following statement can be attributed to Evan Greer, Fight for the Futures Deputy Director [pronouns: she / her]:

My first question is: why is the FCC spending taxpayer dollars fighting journalists in court in order to keep this information secret in the first place? What are they hiding? Who are they covering for?

Fight for the Future is one of many groups that used the FCCs bulk upload feature to submit real comments from real people concerned about the agencys repeal of net neutrality. We have no problem with the FCC releasing this information. The only reason to keep it hidden is to prevent the public from learning which groups abused this comment system by submitting fraudulent comments, and who funded them.

Lets face it, the FCC has lost all credibility since their alleged DDoS attack turned out to be an outright lie that they used to downplay the overwhelming opposition to their repeal of net neutrality. This court ruling is a solid step forward for the millions of Internet users and small business owners who took the time to submit real comments opposing the FCCs net neutrality repeal.

Can Russia Survive Her Partnerships? Has Putin Made A Strategic Miscalculation? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Can Russia Survive Her Partnerships?
Has Putin Made A Strategic Miscalculation?

Paul Craig Roberts

In an act of intentional deception, Israel used a Russian airplane to cloak an Israeli attack on a Syrian ground position, with the consequence that Syrian air defense missiles downed the Russian airplane with the lost of 15 Russian military lives.

In the words of the Russian Ministry of Defense: The Israeli pilots used the Russian plane as cover and set it up to be targeted by the Syrian air defense forces. As a consequence, the Il-20, which has radar cross-section much larger than the [Israeli] F-16, was shot down by an S-200 system missile. Russian Defense Minister Shoigu said: The blame for the downing of the Russian plane and the deaths of its crew members lies squarely on the Israeli side. The actions of the Israeli military were not in keeping with the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, so we reserve the right to respond. https://russia-insider.com/en/russian-military-says-holds-israel-responsible-deaths-15-servicemen-reserves-right-respond/ri24780 See also: http://tass.com/defense/1022123

For a few minutes it looked like Israel was finally to be held accountable for its reckless and irresponsible actions, but it was not to be. Russian President Putin contradicted his Defense Minister by declaring the loss of Russian lives to be accidental, a result of a chain of tragic circumstances.

One wonders how Israel does it. President Putin covered up for Israels destruction of the Russian IL-20 just as President Johnson covered up for Israels murderous attack on the USS Liberty that resulted in 208 US Navy casualties. https://www.rt.com/news/438728-putin-israel-syria-plane/ As Israel gets away with everything, including routine massacres of unarmed Palestinian women and children, there is no reason to expect Israel to change its behavior.

Putin, however, might have to change his behavior or go to full-scale war. I have long admired and defended Putins refusal to escalate conflict by refusing to reply to provocation with provocation. Putin understands that he is dealing with irrationality both in Washington and the West generally and in Israel. He doesnt want to see this irrationality erupt in nuclear war. Everyone should admire Putin for his rectitude. Nevertheless, when dealing with bullies, which is what Washington and Israel are, there is a downside to Putins policy of turning the other cheek.

How Capitalism Convinced Americans the Only Things That Matters is Capitalism "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why Americans Put the Success of Capitalism Above Their Own Lives Falling Apart

If I ask the average American, how do you think the economy is doing? they will probably talk to me about unemployment rates, GDP growth, stock markets, and so on. They might even refer, if theyve got graduate or undergraduate degrees in related subjects, to notions like interest rates, zero lower bounds, budget constraints, and so forth. And Ill also hear about deficits and spending and profits.

Now, all this is funny, sad, and a little tragic. Because what my average American wont talk about are things which are the most necessary essential that impact the quality of his or her own life. The price of food. The cost of healthcare. The impossibility of retirement. The staggering burden of paying for an education. How are these things doing? Do you see the irony here? Let me make it more precise.

Americans have been taughtindoctrinated, perhapsto think of the economy as capitalism. Quite literally: if capital returns are highwhich is what all the above really measurethen Americans suppose the economy is booming. But capital returnsprofits, dividends, stock markets, GDP (or their opposites, deficits)are not the economy at all. They are just the success of capitalists, at increasing their capital. Hence, the average Americanwho isnt a capitalist, since the true capitalists, Bezos, Brin, Buffett, are tiny in numberis cheering on capitalists increasing their capital, but not his own income, savings, living standards, health, longevity, or happiness. Victory for capitalism, comrades!!

LOLare you beginning to see why I think this is funny and tragic and weird yet? Americans think the economy is a set of abstractions about capitalismmore exactly, capitalists increasing their capital. But they have been systematically warned against thinking of the economy as them: the simple and daily realities of their very own liveswhether or not they can afford food, shelter, medicine, education, save, retire, create, dream, build, grow. Comradesthe victory of capitalism is the victory of us all! You see how ironically Soviet American collapse is.

(Hence, my conversation with the average American might go something like this.

Hows the economy going?

Well, I think its going pretty well!

Why?

Well, the stock markets booming. Unemployment isnt so bad. Profits are high! Things are going well!

Netanyahu regrets death of Russian troops in Syria "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Netanyahu and Putin, who have met several times this year and enjoy good relations, spoke on the phone to diffuse tensions after the downing of the Russian military aircraft [PPIO]


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian President Vladimir Putin that he regretted the deaths of 15 Russian soldiers aboard a downed IL-20 military surveillance plane but blamed the Syrians for shooting it down over the port town of Latakia.

During a phone call between the two leaders a day after the incident, Netanyahu promised Putin that Israel would cooperate in an investigation over the matter, and offered to dispatch the head of the Israeli air force to Moscow.

The Russian military on Tuesday squarely blamed Israel for the downing of the Russian surveillance plane.

Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said that Israel launched air raids over Syrian territory when it knew that the Russian plane would be near Syrian airspace.

The Russian plane was shot down by Syrian anti-aircraft defense systems.

Shoigu spoke to his Israeli counterpart Avigdor Lieberman on the phone and said: The actions of the Israeli military were not in keeping with the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, so we reserve the right to respond.

The shooting down of the Russian military aircraft comes a day after Syrian military sources said that they shot down a number of Israeli missiles fired into their territory.

Earlier on Tuesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador in Moscow and informed him that Israeli military action in and around Syria was reckless.

Israel said that it expresses sorrow for the death of the aircrew members of the Russian plane.

However, blamed the government of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad as well as Iran and its Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah.

Tax salience and the new Trump tariffs "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

That is the topic of my latest Bloomberg column.  Here is one excerpt:

tariffs distort consumer decisions more than sales taxes do. It may well be true that consumers dont notice tariffs as such. But they respond by buying less, lowering their well-being and also possibly lowering GDP and employment.

It gets worse yet. President Donald Trumps tariffs typically are applied to intermediate goods coming from China, such as circuit boards and LCD screens. The end result is more expensive computers at the retail level. But most consumers see only the higher price for computers. They probably dont know which intermediate goods Trump put the tariffs on, and for that matter many U.S. consumers probably dont even know what circuit boards are, much less where they come from.

The end result is that the tariffs are somewhat invisible, or at least they are invisible as tariffs. Its highly unlikely there will be mass protests against a 10 percent tariff on circuit boards. No one will get circuit board tariff charge bill in the mail, as they might with their property taxes, and unlike gasoline, people dont buy computers very often.

Most generally, it can be said that the new Trump policy makes the high prices salient, but the underlying tariffs not very salient at all. This is the worst possible scenario. The higher prices will reduce consumption and output, yet the invisibility of the tariffs will limit voter pushback.

Do read the whole thing.

How Capitalism Cost Americans Their Dignity "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Why Dignity is the Highest Kind of Freedom

My kid sister arrived to visit me this morning, on a 7AM flight, and as she took a nap, unable to sleep, I headed off bleary-eyed to the little street where I sip my coffee and think my thoughts. There, in the morning sunshine, a London taxi pulled up, and the driver, harried, pressed for time, reluctant, muttering, helped an old, old man out, and bent him roughly over his walker. The old man, as frail as winter, began to shuffle, delicately, slower than a little childone foot, just inches at a time.

I watched, concerned. The busy, busy people strode by. He tottered, about to fall. I ran, and caught him just in time.

Do you need some help? I asked, not wishing to offend him. After a moment, he nodded, frowninga proud old fellowand as I walked him to the restaurant at the end of the street, he softened, and we chatted.

Now. Let me explain the meaning of this little story.

If theres a missing ingredient in the world todayin economies, in societies, in cultureit seems to be this one: dignity. Neoliberalism, capitalism, growthall these things have seem to cost us something more precious than they have returned to us, and that is why we feel so angry and disappointed and frustrated. We may have cheaper flat-screen TVsbut the price seems to have been our dignity. We treat one another badly. incited by demagogues, we are more focused on what we can take away from one another now that on what what we should give to one another. We are used up and disposed of by our institutions and systems the instant we are no longer productive and profitable. There is a crisis of indignity sweeping the globeand that is why extremism is rising.

(Let me put that another way. A sense that our lives really count, matter, mean something greater than egotism, selfishness, greed, and self-absorption, that we were put here for better and truer things than merely being cogs in the grey, mindless capitalist machine, that there is something inviolable and inalienable in every one of usthese things have gone missing. We are crying out for purpose, belonging, meaning, significance these daysand that is one great reason that the fascists hold such a seductive appeal.)

But what is dignity? Its a subtler notion than we think in the Anglo world. Here, we suppose dignity is something like being rich: a McMansion, a fine wardrobe, a yacht perhaps. When a person has these things, then they have dignity. Until they have such thingsthey cannot hold their head up high. Or perhaps we reduce dignity in another wayto never needing to ask for or rely on anyones help, which is to say, the tired old myth of self-reliance. Whether or not you agree with that...

The theory is enormously appealing. We can create good jobs for constituents who have a hard time finding work elsewhere and the profits will help fund our nonprofit organizations. The reality, however, is far more complicated.

Historic federal legislation embeds support for employee-ownership within the SBA "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Employee-owned businesses offer a vital solution for the survival and success of small businesses. This legislation improves small business loan programs for employee-owned business concerns through the Small Business Administration.

The first federal level bipartisan legislation that highlights worker cooperatives, the Main Street Employee Ownership Act has just been signed into law. Driven by the efforts of U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the Senate and Congresswoman Nydia Velzquez in the House of Representatives, this legislation will support small businesses that save jobs and invest in their workers and communities by transitioning to an employee-owned business form such as a cooperative (co-op) or an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).

The Democracy at Work Institute, along with its affiliated organization the US Federation of Worker Cooperatives, played an educational role to inform the creation and development of this legislation, and is pleased to see the expansion of federal support for broad-based worker ownership.

MAC to the future "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This morning the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) released the final report in its year-long (plus) investigation into EU migration. The report is arguably the most comprehensive assessment of how migration has affected the UK over the past two decades, dealing with topics as diverse as the labour market, housing, public finances and subjective wellbeing. In doing so, it has injected some much-needed evidence into the debate about migration.

As well as looking back at how migration has affected the country, the Committee casts its eyes to the future and recommends how the UKs migration system should be redesigned as we leave the European Union. Its recommendations, if implemented, would represent the most significant shake-up of our migration system in a generation. Given the reports breadth it will take time to digest it all, so below Ive analysed three important ramifications of the MACs policy proposals.

1) The big change for lower-paying sectors

The MAC argues that for lower-skilled workers, we do not see the need for a work-related scheme. This will anger many lower-paying sectors, which the MAC admits as much when it says: we know that some sectors will lobby intensively against this proposal. So who will be doing the lobbying? EU migrants account for around a fifth of employees in food manufacturing, hotels, domestic personnel and logistics, and around a tenth of staff in bars and restaurants.

However, the MAC points out that most of the existing stock would remain. It is not just the amount of EU workers in a sector that matters, but also the level of staff turnover. We can get a sense of which sectors will feel the pinch first by examining the rate at which people move out of the sector to take up new jobs. The figure below shows that, of those sectors that tend to employ a lot of migrants, hospitality, retail and the arts could feel the squeeze first. By contrast health and social work may have more time to adjust.

Alternative paths to success? The jobs landscape facing young non-graduates today "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

From photos of jumping A level students to guides to freshers week, at this time of year it can feel like university is the only route taken by teenagers. But in fact, fewer than half of young people follow this seemingly well-trodden path at 18. And, as this mornings ONS publication about non-graduates employment patterns reminds us, non-graduates are a diverse group with diverse outcomes in the world of work.

During 2017, the employment rate for non-graduates aged 22-29 was 78 per cent, compared to 90 per cent for their similarly-aged graduate counterparts. The proportion of young non-graduates classed as economically inactive (meaning those not available nor looking for work) was 17 per cent, compared to just 6 percent for young graduates.

It would be wrong to think of non-graduates as a homogeneous block. As the chart below illustrates, roughly 60 per cent of todays 22-29 year-olds are without a bachelors degree. But educational attainment varies widely within this group: 7 per cent of 22-29 year-olds have a Level 4 or 5 qualification (higher education below degree-level), nearly a quarter (24 per cent) have a Level 3 (A level or equivalent) qualification and just below a quarter (23 per cent) have a Level 2 (GCSE or equivalent) qualification. Another 8 per cent either have no formal qualifications or qualifications classed as other.

What should Robert Wiblin ask Tyler Cowen? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Robert will be interviewing me later this week, as an installment of Conversations with Tyler, just as Patrick Collison once interviewed me a while back.  At least part of the interview will focus on my forthcoming book Stubborn Attachments: A Vision of a Society of Free, Prosperous, and Responsible Individuals.  (And we will do 2.5 hours, a Robert specialty!)  Here is part of Roberts bio:

I studied both genetics and economics at the Australian National University (ANU), graduated top of my class and was named Young Alumnus of the Year in 2015.

I worked as a research economist in various Australian Government agencies including the Treasury and Productivity Commission.

I then moved to Oxford in the UK to work at the Centre for Effective Altruism, first as Research Director and then Executive Director.

I then became Research Director for 80,000 Hours. In 2015 the project went through Y Combinator, and in 2016 we moved from Oxford to Berkeley, California in order to grow more quickly.

He is renowned for his thorough preparation and he runs a very good podcast of his own.  So what should he ask me?

Destroying America: It Is Being Projected That The U.S. National Debt Will Hit 99 Trillion Dollars By 2048 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Temporary prosperity that is created by exploding levels of debt is not actually prosperity at all.  At this moment, the U.S. government is 21.4 trillion dollars in debt, and we have been adding an average of more than a trillion dollars a year to that debt since 2009.  And if we stay on the path that we are currently on, the trajectory of our debt will soon accelerate dramatically.  In fact, as you will see below, the Congressional Budget Office is now projecting that the U.S. national debt will reach 99 trillion dollars by 2048 if nothing changes.  Congressional Budget Office projections always tend to be overly optimistic, and so the reality will probably be much worse than that.  Of course we will never actually see the day when our national debt reaches 99 trillion dollars.  Our government (and our entire society along with it) will collapse long before we ever get to that point.  In our endless greed, we are literally destroying America, and emergency action must be taken immediately if we are to survive.

Debt always makes things seem better in the short-term, and it is always destructive in the long-term.

When we go into debt as a nation, we are literally stealing from the bright future that our children and our grandchildren were supposed to have.  Through the first 11 months of this fiscal year, the official U.S. budget deficit was $895,000,000,000, which means that we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations of Americans every single hour of every single day.

And it is important to remember that not all additions to the national debt are included in the official budget deficit.  One year ago, our national debt was sitting at 20.1 trillion dollars, and that means that we have added an astounding 1.3 trillion dollars to the debt over the past 12 months.

This is complete and utter insanity, and it must stop now.

Let me try to put this into perspective.  Not too long ago, Venezuela was once one of the wealthiest countries in South America.  These days, many Americans like to laugh at them, but we are on the exact same path that Venezuela has gone dow...

Are generational or cohort-level changes strong? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Here is the view of Kali H. Trzesniewski and M. Brent Donnellan, in their piece Rethinking Generation Me: A Study of Cohort Effects from 1976-2006:

Social commentators have argued that changes over the last decades have coalesced to create a relatively unique generation of young people. However, using large samples of U.S. high-school seniors from 1976 to 2006 (Total N = 477,380), we found little evidence of meaningful change in egotism, self-enhancement, individualism, self-esteem, locus of control, hopelessness, happiness, life satisfaction, loneliness, antisocial behavior, time spent working or watching television, political activity, the importance of religion, and the importance of social status over the last 30 years. Todays youth are less fearful of social problems than previous generations and they are also more cynical and less trusting. In addition, todays youth have higher educational expectations than previous generations. However, an inspection of effect sizes provided little evidence for strong or widespread cohort-linked changes.

The pointer is from @hardsci.  As he (Sanjay) notes on Twitter: Researchers these days just dont make cohort arguments like they used to  And here are some related results on narcissism.

Evidence Is No Longer A Western Value "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Evidence Is No Longer A Western Value

Support your website or it wont be here.

Russia Provides Conclusive Proof That Ukraine Downed Malaysia Airlines MH17

Of course, proof, facts, evidence are no longer of any consequence in the Western World. Transparently false accusations can be leveled without any evidence provided, and the lie becomes a fact. Russiagate is a perfect example.

Feminist students in Western universities, who find themselves offended by scientific fact, denounce scientists for speaking truth that contradicts feminist ideology, and the university administrations, obedient to feminish ideology, haul the scientists before hearings ideologically prepared to declare the scientist, if male, a misogynist. https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/09/17/feminist-ideology-is-inconsistent-with-science/

History is rewritten into fantasy because the historical facts are offensive to one victim group or the other. Identity politics has birthed a new world: history is whatever serves agendas. Nothing else counts. Truth least of all.

Justice no longer exists in America as 97% of felony convictions result from self-incriminationplea bargains in which the defendant, innocent or guilty, advised by his attorney that a fair trial is impossible, admits to some offense in exchange for a watered-down sentence. See Roberts and Stratton, The Tyranny of Good Intentions: https://www.amazon.com/Tyranny-Good-Intentions-Prosecutors-Constitution/dp/0307396061/ref=sr_1_5?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1537222625&sr=1-5&keywords=Paul+Craig+Roberts

Decades ago when there was still some semblance of justice in the American justice system, police had to provide sound evidence for their case in order for the prosecutor to take up the case. The reason was that prosecutorial budgets were limited, and the career interests of prosecutors was to get as many convictions out of their budget as possible. Today, however, when even the innocent prefer to admit a crime rather than run the risk of a trial, prosecutors have endless strings of convictions without having to spend days or weeks in trial.

Today prosecutors no longer have to prove a case before a jury. They only negotiate with the defendants attorney a crime, whether committed or not, that settles the case.

Consequently, the police, knowing that there is scant chance of their evidence ever being tested in court, solve crimes by sim...

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-09-12/meet-turkeys-new-sovereign-wealth-fund-chairman-who-has-now-taken-public-companies

What does a man who already controls pretty much everything in his country  from politics to the judiciary to defense  give to himself? How about direct takeover of his countrys sovereign wealth fund?

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has appointed himself chairman of Turkeys sovereign wealth fund after recent promises to exert greater influence over the economy. Hes nixed the old guard management and hand-picked their replacements, in a move his political rival, presidential candidate who lost the June election, Muharrem Ince, has aptly described as taking public companies prisoners.

And not to be one to break medieval sultanate tradition, hes further named his son-in-law and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak as deputy chairman.

Calling this latest move a crazy example of the countrys poor management under Erdogan, Ince wrote on Twitter immediately after the news was made public: The man who has captured...

Stephen Jenkinson: Re-Discovering The Value Of Elders "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Stephen Jenkinson: Re-Discovering The Value Of Elders

In past eras of human civilization, the wisdom of respected "elders" guided much of the decison-making in society.

But today, when youth is revered and age is equated with obsolesence and irrelevance, that role and its sage counsel have been lost.

It's not that we as a culture don't have desperate need for such wisdom. We do. Perhaps more than ever given the intractable and unsustainable issues we face -- an over-indebted world economy, resource depletion, species loss, eroding civil liberties, etc.

In this week's podcast, Stephen Jenkinson, author of the new book, Come of Age: The Case for Elderhood in a Time of Trouble, returns to explain how the role of elder might be re-instated. It won't be easy, but it may just be one of the essential ingredients we need to make it through the challenge times ahead.

Greased Wheels Move Some Appropriations, But Deficits Growing swinn Mon, 09/17/2018 - 17:48

In the most recent episode of Facing the Future, the show returned to its usual format after concluding its New Hampshire candidate interview series.

Steve Winn, Concords communications director, joined the program to discuss the shrinking share of the federal budget dedicated to programs for children -- despite all of the political rhetoric about the importance of caring for younger Americans.

Citing a recent report from the Urban Institute, he said that under current law the childrens share of the budget is projected to drop from 9.4 percent to only 6.9 percent over the next decade. This spending and other national priorities are being squeezed as more of the federal budget goes to entitlement programs and rising interest costs on the federal debt.

Winn said all this underscored the need for comprehensive fiscal reforms.

The Concord Coalitions Executive Director Robert L. Bixby and Committee for a Responsible Federal Budgets Chief of Staff and Director of Strategic Initiatives Mike Murphy shared their thoughts on this years appropriations process, a new round of proposed tax cuts and more.

It will come as no surprise to you, and probably many of your listeners, that the budget process as it is supposed to work has not been working very well for a long time, Murphy said. I believe that there have been only four times since the Budget Act in the 1970s where they were able to pass in some form all of the appropriations bills by the Sept. 30 deadlin...

Aint no $20 bills on this Cambridge sidewalknot any more "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

An art installation made up of 1,000 worth of penny coins left in a disused fountain disappeared in just over one day.

The 100,000 pennies were placed in the fountain at Quayside in Cambridge at 08:00 BST on Saturday and were due to be left for 48 hours.

All of the coins were gone by 09:00 BST on Sunday, but the In Your Way project is not treating it as theft.

Artistic director Daniel Pitt said it was a provocative outcome.

The work, which used money from an Arts Council England lottery grant, was one of five pieces staged across the city over the weekend.

Cambridge-based artist Anna Brownsted said her fountain piece was an invitation to respond, a provocation.

Is Hungary the Last Remaining European Country? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Is Hungary the Last Remaining European Country?

Disobedient Hungary: From the Soviet to the European Union
Regime Change in Budapest?
By Diana Johnstone

CNN recently discovered a paradox. How was it possible, they asked, that in 1989, Viktor Orban, at the time a Western-acclaimed liberal opposition leader, was calling for Soviet troops to leave Hungary, and now that he is Prime Minister, he is cozying up to Vladimir Putin?

For the same reason, dummy.

Orban wanted his country to be independent then, and he wants it to be independent now.

In 1989, Hungary was a satellite of the Soviet Union. Whatever Hungarians wanted, they had to follow directives from Moscow and adhere to Soviet communist ideology.

Today, Hungary is ordered to follow directives from Brussels and adhere to the EU ideology, a k a our common values.

But what exactly are those common values?

Not so very, very long ago, the West, that is, both America and Europe, claimed devotion to Christian values. Those values were evoked in Western condemnation of the Soviet Union.

That is out. These days, indeed, one of the reasons why Viktor Orban is considered a threat to our European values is his reference to a Hungarian conception of the Christian character of Europe, the role of nations and cultures. The revival of Christianity in Hungary, as in Russia, is regarded in the West as deeply suspect.

So its understood, Christianity is no longer a Western value. What has taken its place? That should be obvious: today our common values essentially mean democracy and free elections.

Guess again. Orban was recently re-elected by a landslide. Leading EU liberal Guy Verhofstadt called this an electoral mandate to roll back democracy in Hungary.

Since elections can roll back democracy, they cannot be the essence of our common values. People can vote wrong; that is called populism and is a bad thing.

The real, functional common values of the European Union are spelled out in its treaties: the four freedoms. No, not freedom of speech, since many Member States have laws against hate speech, which can cover a lot of ground since its meaning is open to wide interpretation. No, the obligatory four freedoms of the EU are free movement of goods, services, persons and capital throughout the Union. Open borders. That is the essence of the European Union, the dogma of the Free Market.

The problem with the Open Border doctrine is that it doesnt know where to stop. Or it doesnt stop anywhere. When Angela Merkel announced that hundreds of thousands of refugees were welcome in Germany, the announcement was interpreted a...

We're All Speculators Now "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

When the herd thunders off the cliff, most participants are trapped in the stampede..
One of the most perverse consequences of the central banks "saving the world" (i.e. saving banks and the super-wealthy) is the destruction of low-risk investments: we're all speculators now, whether we know it or acknowledge it.
The problem is very few of us have the expertise and experience to be successful speculators, i.e. successfully manage treacherously high-risk markets. Here's the choice facing money managers of pension funds and individuals alike: either invest in a safe low-risk asset such as Treasury bonds and lose money every year, as the yield doesn't even match inflation, or accept the extraordinarily high risks of boom-bust bubble assets such as junk bonds, stocks, real estate, etc.
The core middle-class asset is the family home. Back in the pre-financialization era (pre-1982), buying a house and paying down the mortgage to build home equity was the equivalent of a savings account, with the added bonus of the potential for modest appreciation if you happened to buy in a desirable region.

The Bubble In Everything Threatens $400 Trillion In Assets "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

 

BCA then goes on to note that the current episode of elevated risk-asset valuations is not unprecedented, but there is a crucial difference today with past experiences. Previous episodes of elevated risk-asset valuations tended to be localized, either by geography or sector: 1990 was focused in Japan; 2000 was focused in the dot-com related sectors; 2008 was focused in the U.S. mortgage and credit markets and preceded the emerging market credit boom.

By comparison, BCA warns echoing a point made here on numerous occasions the post-2008 global experiment with quantitative easing, and zero and negative interest rate policies have boosted the valuations of all risk-assets across all geographies and all asset-classes global equities (see chart), global credit, and global real estate. The bubble in everything as some call it.

Of course, there were many articles recounting the collapse and laying blame for the great financial crisis at their feet. But, as is always the case, an event is always the blame for major reversions rather than the actions which created the environment necessary for the crash to occur. In the case of the financial crisis, Lehman was the event which accelerated a market correction that was already well underway.

Muellers Catching The Swamp Creatures, Not The Donald "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Robert Muellers fishing crew was out trawling for Manafort, a blubbery swamp mammal valued for its lubricating oil when, by happenstance, a strange breed of porpoise called a Podesta got caught up in the net. Turns out it was a traveling companion of the Manafort. Back in 2014, the pair swam all the way to a little country called Ukraine via the Black Sea where the Podesta used some Manafort SuperLube on then-president of Ukraine, Victor Yanukovych.

The objective was to grease the wheel of NATO and the EU for Ukraine to become a member. But the operation went awry when Yanukovych got a better offer from the Eurasian Customs Union, a Russian-backed trade-and-security org. And the next thing you know, the US State Department and the CIA are all over the situation and, whaddaya know, the Maidan Square in Kiev fills up with screaming neo-Nazis and Mr. Yanukovych gets the bums rush and despite the major screw-up, the Manafort and the Podesta swim off with a cool few million in fees and return to the comforts of the swamp where they finally part ways.

Co-op Power Restoration Efforts Continue Amid Florences Flooding Threats "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Electric co-ops from more than a dozen states, including those from parts of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia that originally kept their crews available for local response, are now involved in power restoration where they are needed.

The Arkansas cooperatives have sent approximately 100 pieces of equipment that include service bucket trucks, bucket trucks, digger derricks, pickups and pole trailers, said Rob Roedel, a spokesman for Arkansas Electric Cooperatives Inc., adding that more crews remain available should they be needed.

Personnel from the Alabama Rural Electric Association are keeping in close touch with their counterparts in North Carolina so plans can be made to shift crews from one area to another, as the need arises, said Lenore Vickrey, the associations vice president of communications. She added that if they are needed, the crews can expect to spend a week to 10 days helping restore power.

In the spring of 1932, in Compton, California, an unemployed World War I veteran walked out to the farms that still ringed Los Angeles. He offered his labor in return for a sack of vegetables, and that evening he returned with more than his family needed. The next day a neighbor went out with him to the fields. Within two months 500 families were members of the Unemployed Cooperative Relief Organization.

That group became one of 45 units in an organization that served the needs of some 150,000 people.

It operated a large warehouse, a distribution center, a gas and service station, a refrigeration facility, a sewing shop, a shoe shop, even medical services, all on cooperative principles. Members were expected to work two days a week, and benefits were allocated according to need. A member with a wife and two kids got four times as much food as someone living alone. The organization was run democratically, and social support was as important as material support. Members helped one another resist evictions; sometimes they moved a family back in after a landlord had put them out. Unemployed utility workers turned on gas and electricity for families that had been cut off.

Spending Bills Move Forward But Debt Growth Ignored "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Spending Bills Move Forward But Debt Growth Ignored swinn Mon, 09/17/2018 - 10:21

Lawmakers made noteworthy progress last week on spending bills for the coming year, at least as far as timeliness is concerned. Congress approved three bills and negotiators announced a bipartisan agreement on a much larger package that could avoid a government shutdown in October.

Legislative leaders are pleased and proud, noting that work on spending bills now is ahead of schedule compared to many years in the past.

"This represents a return to our most basic responsibility around here: passing appropriations bills," Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters as the first three bills neared passage. "It really is a step in the right direction, and we're going to build on this."

It should be noted, however, that some spending legislation is still being delayed until December, more than two months after the Oct. 1 start of the new fiscal year.

In addition, a partial government shutdown this fall remains a possibility, with President Trump sending mixed signals on whether he would accept a short-term deal that does not include the level of funding he has requested for his proposed border wall.

Even more troubling, though, is the fiscal backdrop to this budgeting cycle: Not only have lawmakers and President Trump failed to start reining in federal borrowing, they are embracing larger deficits with alarming enthusiasm.

The Treasury Department released a depressing reminder of the big fiscal picture last week when it reported that the federal deficit for the first 11 months of Fiscal 2018 totaled more than $898 billion. The comparable figure from a year ago was $666 billion.

The White House itself has projected a return to trillion-dollar deficits starting with the current fiscal year. This new borrowing will all be added to the current debt, whic...

The United States Is a Dead Man Walking "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

The United States Is a Dead Man Walking
Or is it a dead feminist, homosexual, transgendered walking zombie?

Paul Craig Roberts

Truth is under fierce attack. If you do not support your website, you will find yourself in total darkness.

While driving yesterday, I turned on the car radio to see if the Russian/Syrian liberation of Idlib, Syria, from the Washington-supported terrorists had begun. What I got was two white females deploring white racism on NPR. They were so guilty that they had indirectly benefitted from white racism. I thought I was going to drown in the guilt of one of the females before she ever finished her sentence.

You are not going to believe the indirect benefit that produced such wrenching guilt in the white female. But maybe you will. She had purchased a brick bungalow Identical to the one next door in which a black American lived with the difference that the attic in her house had been refurbished, but the black mans attic had not. Her racial guilt came from the fact that the white person from whom she had purchased the house had been able to refurbish the attic, but her black neighbor had not, apparently because of racism.

Does this seem like a reasonable explanation for wallowing in racial guilt? I can think of many better ones that go unmentioned in the presstitute media. For example, as Eric Zuesse reports, Saudi Arabia, the puppet state that Washington has sicced on Yemen, is systematically blocking food from reaching tens of millions of people, Houthis, who live in Yemen and are surrounded by the U.S. alliances engines of death. The Houthis are being starved to death because they wanted a government of their own, not one imposed by Washington.

One wonders at the extremely limited definition of racial guilt that the two white women on NPR found so difficult to bear: The black neighbor had a house just like hers only his attic wasnt refurbished, a sign of racism that she felt guilty about.

How would such emotional and intellectual weaklings, as these NPR women, bear the US-enforced starvation of ten million people in Yemen currently underway, the destruction in whole or part of 8 countries under the criminal Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama Regimes, now extending into the Trump regime. How could these guilt-burdened women bear the Israeli states systematic genocide of the Palestinians?

Of course, they dont have to, because NPR never tells them about it. NPR is where white people go to do their self-denunciation as unworthy. This process cant be interrupted by showing where the heavy guilt resides. If white people cant be made to feel guilty, how can blacks and Jews be safe?

The US print and TV media along with NPR have been missing in action for a long...

Do Boys Have a Comparative Advantage in Math and Science? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Even with a question mark my title, Do Boys Have a Comparative Advantage in Math and Science, is likely to appear sexist. Am I suggesting the boys are better at math and science than girls? No, I am suggesting they might be worse.

Consider first the so-called gender-equality paradox, namely the finding that countries with the highest levels of gender equality tend to have the lowest ratios of women to men in STEM education. Stoet and Geary put it well:

Finland excels in gender equality (World Economic Forum, 2015), its adolescent girls outperform boys in science literacy, and it ranks second in European educational performance (OECD, 2016b). With these high levels of educational performance and overall gender equality, Finland is poised to close the STEM gender gap. Yet, paradoxically, Finland has one of the worlds largest gender gaps in college degrees in STEM fields, and Norway and Sweden, also leading in gender-equality rankings, are not far behind (fewer than 25% of STEM graduates are women). We will show that this pattern extends throughout the world

(Recent papers have found the paradox holds in other measures of education such as MOOCs and in other measures of behavior and personality. Hat tip on these: Rolf Degen.)

Two explanations for this apparent paradox have been offered. First, countries with greater gender equality tend to be richer and have larger welfare states than countries with less gender equality. As a result, less is riding on choice of career in the richer, gender-equal countries. Even if STEM fields pay more, we would expect small differences in personality that vary with gender would become more apparent as income increases. Paraphrasing John Adams, only in a rich country are people feel free to pursue their interests more than their needs. If women are somewhat less interested in STEM fields than men, then we would expect this difference to become more apparent as income increases.

A second explanation focuses on ability. Some people argue that more men than women have extraordinary ability levels in math and science because of greater male variability in most characteristics. Lets put that hypothesis to the side. Instead, lets think about individuals and their relative abilities in reading, science and maththis what Stoe...

Benjamin Fulford: MI6 says cabal rule could collapse within three months "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Benjamin Fulford

There is a very real chance that Khazarian cabal rule will collapse over the next three months, and alternative power structures need to be made ready in time for that, according to British MI6 intelligence sources.  The trigger is expected to be arrests of senior cabalists in the U.S. starting in October, the sources say.

Pentagon sources, for their part, said, The Cabal has been deaf and blind for over two weeks, so big things should happen after Brett Kavanaughs Supreme Court confirmation.

Kavanaugh is poised to be confirmed after Yom Kippur on September 20 and on the same day, U.S. President Donald Trump may send texts to all cellphones to reach even more people than Twitter.  Furthermore, the sources say FEMA will also test the emergency broadcast system on all televisions, so this, when combined with wireless text alerts, will allow Trump to spread real news in real time and drop truth bombs.

The exact nature of what will be told to the American people through the emergency broadcast system is not yet clear.  However, last week representatives of the Swiss banking gnomes in Zurich, the Russian FSB, MI6, the Japanese royal family, and an Asian secret society all contacted the White Dragon Society (WDS) last week.  The fact that these sources, many of whom had ceased contact since the March 11, 2011 Fukushima nuclear and tsunami terrorist attack, suddenly popped out of the woodwork is a clear indication something huge is about to happen.

CIA sources connected to the secret bases in Antarctica say the sudden surge of activity in the intelligence community was related the sudden closure last week of seven solar observatories.  In particular, the sources say:

The Solar Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico has been observing the sun since the Roswell incident.  They belong to a special

Who has led the most interesting life? "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In recent times, that is.  Devon Zuegel asks:

Who would you name as a contender for having led the most interesting life in the last 100 years?

Keynes pops to mind as one contender.  He was a top-tier intellect and economist, he was closely connected to the arts, had plenty of brilliant Bloomsbury people to chat with, married a ballerina, played a major role in politics several times, and he participated in several critical and indeed formative moments of history (Treaty of Versailles, fiscal policy, Bretton Woods).  He experienced both world wars (no one said interesting has to be good!).  Still, he didnt travel enough to be a slam dunk (I cant quite bring myself to write nor did he have the internet.)

How about Bill Clinton?  He was president twice, oversaw the 1990s, has indeed traveled the world, and known many of the most interesting people of his lifespan.  He also has had rather, umdiverseexperiences in one realm of life.  And he married Hillary.

Paul McCartney was a Beatle, wrote amazing songs and hung out with John Lennon, had domestic bliss with Linda for a few decades, raised lots of kids, was successful as a businessman, and also has a history ofumdiverse experiences.  But did he smoke too much pot?

This list of best lives includes Hugh Hefner, Tyra Banks, and Elon Musk.  Here is one Quora answer for most interesting:

Personally, I find the following people intriguing: Jesus Christ, Martin Luther King, Sir Isaac Newton, Galileo Galilei, Marie Curie, Diego Maradona, Michael Jordan, Socrates/Aristotle/Plato, Samori Toure, Nelson Mandela, Michel de Nostredame. Its a long list. There are even some historical figures that I do not admire, but would like to know more about people such as Joseph Stalin, Napoleon Bonaparte, Judas Isacriot, among so many others.

I hope you are not offended if I rule some of those lives out on grounds of insufficient length, or too much time spent in prison.  Here is a list of interesting writers lives, topped by Ernest Hemingway.

Raw Video Shows Dozens Of People Looting A Dollar Store As Flooding Cuts Wilmington Off From The Rest Of North Carolina "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

A major emergency brings out the best in some people, but in others it brings out the absolute worst.  Shocking images of dozens of people ransacking a Family Dollar store in Wilmington, North Carolina have stunned the nation.  This happened in broad daylight, and many of the looters didnt even seem to care that a television news crew was filming them.  Sadly, this always seems to happen whenever a major disaster takes place.  Our established social order is so vulnerable, and so many people out there will gladly take advantage of others if they believe that there is an opportunity to get away with it.  If this is how people will behave during a storm, how will they act once things start getting really bad in this country?

At this hour, Florence continues to dump massive amounts of rain on the Mid-Atlantic region, and now the death toll is up to 18.  It is being reported that more than 640,000 people are without power, and the National Hurricane Center says that more catastrophic flooding is coming as Florence remains stationary over the Carolinas.

Major roads all over North Carolina and South Carolina have been flooded, and some parts of Interstate 95 have had to be shut down.

The flooding is already so bad that the city of Wilmington has been completely cut off from the rest of North Carolina, and that is where the Family Dollar store was looted.  One reporter was able to capture raw footage of the looting in progress, and you can see that video on YouTube right here.

This is one of the most disturbing things that I have seen in a long time.

How can people behave like that?

Markets in everything "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

I am surprised issues of this kind have taken so long to surface:

Amazon is investigating claims that employees accepted bribes to disclose confidential data that would give sellers that use its marketplace a competitive advantage. The company confirmed the investigation following a report in the Wall Street Journal that Amazon employees, working through brokers, have sold internal sales data, the email addresses of product reviewers, and the ability to delete negative reviews and restore banned accounts. We are conducting a thorough investigation of these claims, an Amazon spokeswoman said.

These practices seem to be a particular problem in China, though not only.  Here is more from Shannon Bond at the FT.  Here is further coverage at Verge: The WSJ also reports that it costs roughly $300 to take down a bad review, with brokers [demanding] a five-review minimum per transaction.

Unfriending Retirement "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Get Good Grades Go to Work Vacation for 10 Days a Year Raise a Family Retire and Then Die!

Dear Reader,

Well, what if it doesnt work out

Today, the idea of retirement in terms of the model used and expected return from the planning of this once-in-a-lifetime event is treated as if Moses came down with the 10 Retirement Savings Commandments

Its as if the 4% rule came from a burning bush but the reality is that retirement as part of human history is new and theres a ton of uncertainty as to how this new idea will work for future generations.

But thats not what the financial world is telling you, nor your government, and no one from the retirement cartel is ever going to tell you the truth about the real uncertainty of retirement: if you do every single thing youre told, it could all still blow up in your face.

Retirement itself as we know it today is brand spankin new.

Its true that the pension first came in 13 B.C. when Roman Emperor Augustus paid out a pension to soldiers who had served for at least 20 years.

Outside of military pensions, it wasnt until nearly a few thousand years later that we saw a civilia...

A HUGE Silver Rally is Coming! "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Golds Little Brother is Set to Go Vertical!

Dear Reader,

A major bottom is forming in silver right now, and this may be an ideal time to take a long-term position.

One reliable driver of silver prices is inflation, and I fully expect inflation to take its toll on the U.S. economy while simultaneously bolstering precious metals. The following chart shows not inflation or consumer prices, but the change in consumer prices:

In other words, already-elevated inflation in the U.S. has been getting worse. Consumers arent getting much bang for their buck (literally) anymore, and while this isnt healthy for the economy, its very likely to boost silver prices.

Its a negative correlation that seasoned investors have seen time and again: the inevitable decline in the value of the dollar causes investors to flock to precious metals as a more secure store of wealth.

When King Dollar is devalued, investors will be forced to find ways to hedge against inflation and silver will be the perfect candidate.

It is true that silver fluctuates more than gold, but thats precisely what makes it such an exciting opportunity when prices are depressed: the upsi...
