The New York Times published a piece today on rising inequality and the difference in opportunity between low-income workers today and the ones of the 1980’s. I read the article defensively at first. It is the New York Times after all. But after the first

  • While I think most if not all agree there is no “ideal” tax system because any tax is ethically theft and economically distortionary, I still think it a intellectually stimulating and useful exercise to discuss alternative tax systems because… – When talking to non-libertarian starting from the position of “here is a better alternative” can at least spark them thinking beyond the standard logic and get them on their way to “abolishment” because the cons of all tax systems become clearer as you think about them more critically   here are some video on alternatives I’ve discussed in the past to get the convo going

  • Greetings, I can post Pages and reply to other people with no issue. When I publish an “Article” it cannot be visited. Searches on WordPress seem to suggest it is a problem withPermalinks and an htaccess file, but following suggestions to reassert Permalink settings has no effect. Changing the page address is no avail. Perhaps someone else has encountered this problem and solved it? example: Thanks for any observations

  • Perhaps you will find this magnificent BBC documentary interesting. It tells the story of the ancient city of Caral, a little north of Lima on the coast of Peru, which is arguably the oldest city in and the beginning of civilization in the Americas. The Lost Pyramids Of Caral There are two points I would like to make about the story told therein of Caral which I think are relevant to libertarians. 1) The early civilization of Caral apparently arose purely out of commerce. This confirms the insights of the Austrian school of economics. And it may be an example of a commercially organized cooperative human society that antedates the rise of any state. 2) This contradicts the presumptions brought to the study by the archaeologists. For one example, at 7:20 one states the following. You can’t build … on the basis of consensus. You have to have leaders and followers. You have to have specialists. You have to have people who are in charge. People who can tell individual groups, alright, today you will be doing this. This group you are going to be doing something different. In other words, in his academic world, the possibility is inconceivable of that human cooperation could be organized by trade — the marketplace — rather than authority.

  • Hey All: This is a coin to take seriously! We went public on the cryptsy exchange on Monday the 2nd of March. We were positioned at 112. This morning we are #1 on the exchange!!!!! What the Global Coin Reserve company is doing to build the ecosystem around the GCR is huge! This is the corporate call from yesterday which we have every week to keep us informed. If you need more information let me know. Otherwise, go ahead and get positioned. That is a must to start accumulating as much coin as possible as early as possible. We are in that time now. Then, you can learn and train as we go. Get started here – This is a real company that offers you a cloud mining service with an altcoin that is separating itself from the rest. In addition, if you want to make addition income in BTC and GCR or cash you can position yourself in the marketing aspect, as well! It is optional.

  • We have 5 mining packages to choose from. (see the website) Depending on the package you position in will determine how many coins you receive daily. We are in the accumulating stage. The Market Movers, like us, will see the largest transfer of wealth from paper into cryptocurrency. We go public first week in June and then we will have a value of $ on our coin. At this time we are not speculating a value. However, we do have value as we are enhanced by gold. We also are NOT just a speculative coin. We have built a large, impressive ecosystem with a loyalty program for merchants and customers, as well as, a marketing system that will give incredible growth to our GCRcoin as we reach massive amounts of people around the globe to build value $$$$$$ in the GCRcoin. Every hour you wait to get positioned is money lost!
