This website was made just for you. I want to make the world a better place. You probably do, too. To progress, we need to discuss and agree on some basic things about money. I am post-partisan, which means everyone disagrees with me, because I don’t share what they fear. However, I think I am right, because I can prove my arguments using math! People are not the hard problem; the math is. I welcome a rebuttal, if you can find a flaw. This is good news, even if it seems scary initially. We can change the math!
The economy is not nearly as complicated as most people think. In fact, to understand it, the challenge is not in learning, but in UNLEARNING, what you believe.
For example, most people think that money is real, but it is only an intellectual agreement gone bad. Even the Federal Reserve, in their own promo, states that money is “just a piece of paper.” (see video)
Ben Bernanke said the same thing on Stephen Colbert the other night. He was peddling his book about the financial crisis. What he doesn’t know is that I was warning about the crisis long before it started, and I had access to much less information than he is privy too.
How did I know (separate from the fact that a prediction of a cyclical event is easy) a crash was coming? Because I understood the math. I have spent many years being self-employed. I lived the statistics that economists are attempting to interpret.
Another crash will surely come, because despite the claims that the system is better regulated, it has not changed an iota. It is only floating on the new debt, and will sink on the new inflation, again.
Creating more debt has been the band-aid solution of tradition. The $18 Trillion National Debt is proof of what has long been ignored, but it is only a symptom of the problem, not the cause.
Bernanke used the only tool he had. We have many more. We can fix this problem by altering our local government and working together. I have a good plan, but it takes everyone to think anew about old problems. Will you join me? Be Happy And Free!
How is it possible that a farmer can feed hundreds or thousands, but not be able to feed himself?
How is it possible that the banks, with their so many advantages, can fail?
How is it possible that every nation in the world is in debt?
ONE ANSWER EXPLAINS IT ALL! You must take the time to grasp the math.
Why have bankruptcies, foreclosures, poverty and excessive regulations and security? Money is a man-made creation and an intellectual agreement. There is no shortage of money, only a lack a imagination.
Everyone should be able to contribute to society doing a useful job that they love, and not have to worry about volatile changes in the marketplace or having their job outsourced overseas for cheaper labor.
The Earth is a garden that provides, not an enemy to conquer. Commonsense stewardship of natural resources is necessary for a society to thrive. How we treat the land is a reflection of how we treat each other. Love Mother Earth and your neighbor.
Everyone is going to get old. There is no reason to spend our working years in fear of the future. When we retire, there should be no need to worry about basic necessities like food, housing and healthcare.
War follows trading routes, domestically and internationally. Let's put an end to civil wars, stereotypes, and partisan scapegoating. Let's follow a new accounting formula for sharing our skills and resources that eliminates conflicts.
The Math is easy. The Politics takes some effort.
If you understand these images, then you will understand a lot. Don’t be lazy! The book is free, so what is your excuse for not reading it?
Inflation has been burning the economies of man for eons, but it arises from an accounting habit that we can change. Profit is just an accounting trick: 2+2=5. (25% Mark-up or 20% Gross Profit). 2+2=8 (100% Mark-up or 50% Gross Profit). 2+2=$18,000,000,000,000 National Debt. Accounting habits and standards are a cultural condition, and we must reap what we sow.
Percentages applied as profit, taxes, interest and wages all yield inflation. There are multiple paths to the same result: volatility. Larger percentages compound faster than smaller percentages. More revenue (GDP growth) increases the pace and scale of volatile change (aka Boom and Bust).
If we change the way we ‘grow’ numbers, then we change the result. It is basic cause-and-effect. What we are experiencing is a false market, not a free market.
Balance, equality, stability and liberty require engineering the numbers with the same commonsense as designing a machine - through the complete cycle. We are all vendors, employees, consumers and citizens. Ideas must be congruous with facts. We must respond to the math, and not ignore it.
Ideas rule the world, not men. Tax your imagination!
