We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
“THERE IS NO MEANS OF AVOIDING THE FINAL COLLAPSE OF A BOOM BROUGHT ABOUT BY CREDIT EXPANSION. THE ALTERNATIVE IS ONLY WHETHER THE CRISIS SHOULD COME SOONER AS A RESULT OF A VOLUNTARY ABANDONMENT OF FURTHER CREDIT EXPANSION, OR LATER AS A FINAL OR TOTAL CATASTROPHE OF THE CURRENCY SYSTEM INVOLVED”
An increasing number of intelligent people are no longer worried about globalistical warming, if they ever were. They are well informed enough to be aware of the fatal flaws of the computer program which spawned the "hockey stick graph", a program which left out entirely both the Medieval Warming Period and the Little Ice Age. Big, unforgivable Oopsie. So that con game will eventually die an inevitable death. Sorry Al Bore. It's over.
Von Mises is a more difficult problem, one which intellectually limited folks will have great trouble understanding, and the rest of us will probably just feel nauseated about.
Debt financing requires real confidence in growth (belief in the power to defray the debt while creating profit to capitalize the future). Low fecundity and high debt bias against growth, leaving the confidence as the variable.
Ergo the bubble. Then the double bubble, then the Bubba trouble, then the rubble double trouble bubble.
Then, the rebuilding of the rubble resets real confidence in growth.
