    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Biderman Blasts Barack Obama's Biggest Of The Big Lies

Tyler Durden's picture


"Inherent in the nature of government itself is the fact that it is incapable of effectively providing services," Biderman blasts, noting that "by 'effective', he means dollars and hours." The TrimTabs CEO is breathless in his beration of "the biggest of the big lies," that continues to be believed by most of America ("given their re-election of Barack Obama" he adds), that government can effectively provide services. The reality is "governments are not capable of getting anything done cost-effectively," and Biderman, focused on Obamacare as a recent example, concludes "its all FUBAR."


Some uncomfortable truths...

Biderman's window looks out on Sausalito which is about as lib as it gets.  Mostly trust fund types, Silicon Valley money and San Fran dough.  Some of the homes look out of the bad were nose bleed expensive years ago.

Brother Jimmuh was a total loss of a president. The inflation that was bad under Ford went astronomic under Carter; I needed a mortgage, the going rate was 18%. No one felt he was effective, reliable or understood what he was doing on a macro scale. The Russians saw him as an impotent clown, the Chinese weren't developed enough yet to be a factor; but the jihadis (early version) weren't impressed, his great Camp David peace initiatives lasted long enough for the ink to dry and the "get deficit spending under control" was a loss, as his own party was too busy buying votes with pork to pay him any attention either.

Ineffective when noticed, irrelevant when un-noticed, Brother Jimmuh was a loss for the country (Shah of Iran, Panama Canal, Castro ignored him and Arafat took advantage of him) so unless you snored through his presidency none of what you said above makes sense.

What a difference from a private vs a VA hospital. What a way to treat vets. Guess it's different in the White House, they get the best.

But they're free (if you have a disability rating, which is not hard to get if you know the system).  And personally, I've had a good experience in VA hospitals.  I've been on private insurance too and I didn't experience a noticeable difference.

Government spends about 70% of tax dollars to get 30% of tax dollars to the poor. The private sector does the opposite, spending about 30% or less to get 70% of aid to the poor.

Actually, that's complete bullshit.

'Income redistribution' aside, charities are famously shit at actually getting the money they take in out to people. I (and my family) give to a number of charties and have researched it quite a bit and it's difficult to find charties who are at all effective with what they claim is their specialty. Particularly obvious when you look at their actual fiscal statements.

Re:  Actually, that's complete bullshit.

Another Libertarian fantasy.  There's also the concept of the low-hanging fruit that private charties deal with.   I'm not a big fan of welfare, but the reality is that a significant percentage of the population is semi-psychotic and disfunctional and will never be able to "compete" with those who have better mental equipment.   Just life.   We can either let them die in a survival-of-the-fittest orgy, or keep them alive because they are humans.

That's because most charities are nothing more than Jobz programs now. How much do the principles at those charitable organizations earn per year? They sure as hell aren't volunteering their time. They need to run the phone banks to keep their revenue(and pay) up. Meanwhile Jon Q Public thinks most of that money he donated is going to the "worthy" cause.

the CEO of any charity you're ever heard of makes 7 figures.  The only thing more profitable than running a charity is religion.

from my own research, i have found the salvation army to be taking the least off of the top, (except small local charities) which is why they are the charity to which i donate.  i am a libertarian.  Your "libertarian fantasy" poke shows how little you really know about libertarians.

I should have quoted "Libertarian" (LINO - the ones who keep voting Red Team).

I'm a libertarian too, but I would never think there's enough nice people to keep charities private.   I might be a libertarian, but - in the real world - I know most people are self-serving selfish assholes (including the guy in the mirror).

Then I guess you need to do your homework when deciding what charity to give to.Or is that too much work? I know it is much easier for your employer to just take the money out of your paycheck and give it to the government and let them worry about who gets help and who doesn't.  After all, the government is so effective at providing charity that it creates a "trap", at the expense of tax payers.Charities are supposed to be like the free market and have to compete for donations. The government hands out charity about as well as it controls the economy.


But if you can dispute the 70% to 30% the government spends on bureaucrats, feel free. The government has a near monopoly on charity and it is very difficult to compete with a near monopoly.


And by law, charities are only allowed to keep 1/3. That's enough to provide incentive and hire competent management.. What incentive does the government have? Your vote? Exactly how accountable is government and their bureaucrats compared to private charities? 


And that's just the utilitarian argument. We have yet to discuss the moral implications of takingh money, by force, to "help" others.

Obamacare will fail, not because a government is unable to operate a health care system  (other countries have done it for decades), but because the Americans are the sickest people in the world. Now mental care is covered too, that will blow up the system instantly.
