Re: Technical Debts: Neglected dams across the US

I was about to say, do as the Romans did. Or the Egyptians. The hope of course is that as a society we can change our thinking to make this possible. Which requires cultural change first, not political. For that type of paradigm shift, we would need a collapse of ephemeral financial wealth that does...

Re: Is Inequality Inevitable?

I cannot say my goal is to win a debate here, because I do not know what the right answer is.

I will try to be more constructive.

Re: Is Inequality Inevitable?

Kindness isn’t the most useful characteristic to determine sagacious allocation of resources.

In order to eat, the majority of us have to do more than be cute.

If I treat my garden with kind words and notions, but no water or light, nothing will grow.

Re: Permanently low interest rates?

If the United States has a disadvantage it is that the resources, both human and natural, in both Russia and China are largely subservient to a central authority. What is an “American”? Who is your “we”? Right now our corporate overlords seem to be selecting each other at everyone else’s expense. Mi...

Re: Permanently low interest rates?

Thanks for the honesty, we are in short supply of it. Most obfuscate the truth or outright lie because they are afraid. Your assessment is essentially mine. The difficulty is getting along socially in the world with this perspective, knowing what needs to be done without having any malice towards o...

Re: Permanently low interest rates?

I’ve been reading your posts and you have a sinister faith in the power of central authorities to control everything. I am certainly wary of this possibility but I feel there is a limit to this. It assumes a kabal of bankers and politicians can sick a military force on the entire world’s population...

Is there insight into quantitative investing or is it primarily a yarn? I have no doubt it is interesting regardless but I’m juggling multiple reads.

Re: Permanently low interest rates?

Long term interest rates are not central bank controlled, and will skyrocket under financial repression. Are you sure? They can keyboard into existence as much money as is required to control rates. The last time rates were hiked to stop inflation was not until after a full decade of sustained high...
