Re: McConnell Economics, Chapter 13

then niall ferguson made "the ascent of money" (after his book i think?) which i should rewatch one of these days. Yes I read the book about 10 years ago, I've forgotten most of it but I remember it was a good read but didn't really answer to me the more ''metaphysical'' questions about d...

Re: COVID topic vol 2

with the only people in the hospitals/morgues being those who deliberately decided that the risk of not getting vaccinated was worth it. Is that really true though because my understanding - correct me if I'm wrong - vaccines are not 100% effective, especially with variants ? So the irresponsibly n...

Re: McConnell Economics, Chapter 13

Chenda, the video is short, simple, and gives a macro answer to your question. Hyperinflation ? Maybe, although we've seen many such predictions that's it's imminent over the past decade and it's never happened. Indeed we seemed to have had more in common with late Weimer than early Weimer. Perhaps...

Yes, this is what happens when the people welcome without question the narrative being intubated down the throat of society.
They can't help but to regurgitate it.
What narrative ?

Re: McConnell Economics, Chapter 13

Interesting stuff, how does this contrast or differ (if at all) with 'quantative easing' about which much fuss is made ?

Re: McConnell Economics, Chapter 13

Right, because make believe money entitles people to claim real goods and services. Too much money chasing too few goods and services (usually) leads to inflation.

Re: McConnell Economics, Chapter 13

@alphaville - A question has always bothered me, if fiat money is all make believe, then our towering mountains of debt are all make believe. They don't really exist except in our imagination. In which case we could...imagine them all away ? :o All that really matters is the productivity of our fiel...

Re: Dealing with anger in the face of everyday evil

Our current climate change is unlikely to end humanity or the biosphere. It's just a change. But its more than just a change, see the 4 degree map which we're on track for in 80 years. Its not hard to see how this could essentially end modern civilisation, for all the optimism about relocating to S...

Re: COVID topic vol 2

I had the astra-zeneca vaccine yesterday. They had some surplus stock which was about to expire so I was able to lawfully jump the age queue under a zero waste policy. Some side effects kicked in after 6 hrs but after 24 hours they seemed to have abated. The second vaccine apparently does not bring ...

Re: 7Wannabe5- Take 7- The Money Dimple

I know this isn't yet a priority but I'm studying landscape architecture at the moment so if you want to post a site plan I'll happily sketch you a landscaping scheme.

I'm thinking something which conveys a subtle gentrification combined with a defensive get-the-feck-off-my-land might work.
