Help me out, why do Keynesians want war?  Honest question.

Wed, 11/30/2011 - 10:53 | 1929870 Boba Fiat

Excerpt:  "The argument can be made that war is a benefactor, since historically it often has focused the use of resources and triggered advances in technology and other areas while reducing unemployment. The increased production and employment associated with war often leads some to claim that 'war is good for the economy.' However, this belief is often given as an example of the broken window fallacy."


See Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt for a proper Austrian rebuttal

Keynesian's have a love for GDP of any type because they conflate economic activity with wealth.  

You could pay people with printed money (from the Fed and banksters, not from you or me.. that'd be illegal) to bitch-slap each other all day, and Keynesians would be giddy.  Building things for war, they believe, makes even better sense...  Look at all the hard work and infrastructure war creates!!! (Ignoring that through war you blow up that wealth you invested in war making, and after the war you have factories geared for war vs. improving quality of life and productivity,  and hence you're ending up far less wealthy afterward... Although, if you destroy your economic competition, you can gather some spoils that cover some of the losses.  Highly moral, you know...)

It's a version of the broken window fallacy, where they believe a broken window is good for the economy since it pushes money around from a shopkeeper with a broken window to the glazier, forgetting that before the window was broken, the shopkeeper had his window and his money, and afterwards he only has a window = he is poorer.  The economy itself is net one window less wealthy because one was broken, never mind the glazier now has the $$.

In shorthand, Keynesians believe in dipshittery of epic proportions.  (By sheer coincidence, the entire power structure / banking-political nexus's very existence depends on Keynesian Theory and it's modern monetary offshoots to remain in power.)

There have been a few posting here that show it does not help the economy at all and is less efficient than other proposed stimuli. What it does do is create debt that is held by the private owners of central banks wordwide and creates an income stream for another 30-50 years that you get to pay.

But since the current "crisis" is caused by the fact that we have already surpassed peak debt, it probably won't work like it did in the good old days.  Just accelerate the implosion.  But war is good for the complete imposition of a totalitarian government - a conversion from soft to hard fascism.  (Watch the Senate clowns this week throw away any rights we thought we had in the septic tank).

Oh wow, looks like the big bad UK wants to pick a fight. Please, these bitchez were almost overrun in Helmand province, Afghanistan but for American air power which obliterated the entire place. UK is a has been and is teetering on the brink of their own debt crisis. AAA or not, we all know that their debt to GDP is a fucking joke. As if UK can afford to send oil to $150 per barrel plus but hey perhaps it will be counted as GDP positive by the Ministry of Plenty.

He's got a point or two. We can't afford $150 oil, and the economy is in a shit state. As for antagonizing Iran, Cameron and Hague are just doing the usual cocking-sucking poodle act to please uncle Sam after he paid some of those trillions bailing out RBS, Bank of Scotland, and Barclays with the Fed's not-so-secret bailout fund.


Anyway, since when did we stop supporting Middle East anarchy and mob violence? Didn't we just drop a few thousand tons of munitions on Libya to see violence and anarchy flourish in the name of freedom? If the Iranian students feel like trashing the British embassy to vent their anger at the trade sanctions and wholesale thieving of their assets abroad, (While we turn blind and deaf at Israel's nuclear arsenals, their military occupation of the west bank, intermittent bombings, and invasions of Lebanon) I'd say they were justified in their anger. They haven't hurt us, but we are actively hurting them economically and probably physically in the near future. I'm truly ashamed at what we're doing on behalf of America, aren't you?

The UK was in Afghanistan to support the USA, you fucking tool - the USA wanted us in there to back them up after 9/11.  Our presence was mainly to show that America wasn't acting alone.

The recent fights that the  "big bad UK" has been in are fights that the USA started - not us.

Of course, the US and UK both serve the same masters anyway, but don't start insinuating that the UK is the one driving these conflicts.

Oh, and get fucked.

The brits mainly follow in US footsteps because:

a) We are puppets of the same masters.

b) We feel that we still owe you for your assistance in WWI and (even more) in WWII. 

We are allies.  This is what allies do.

Maybe that's stupid - I don't know - but when you start talking about the "big, bad UK" like we're the ones starting the fights or "reclaim former glory" then you should expect negative feedback.

The UK - in terms of military action - is by and large America's poodle.  Everyone knows this.  We're as guilty as the USA in terms of the atrocities/injustices committed but we're definitely not the ones driving this thing.

You sir, are a simpering hedge worm. A worthless pustule on the bottom of a newt. A scampering cock scout of the highest order.

Brits 'follow in the footsteps' of the USA because - mitaken or not - they believe that Britain shares interests with USA and that our two cultures are sufficiently similar so as to be simultaneously promoted. Not saying I agree with this, but it is the perception. It may also have something to do with the fact that being a former colony people still have a soft spot for the US.

You need the UK in foriegn conflicts, not because of our army but because you have been electing such uneducated fucking fools with such obvious undemocratic agendas that the only way Europe and the security council will allow your misguided adventures, is if someone with half a brain and a decent degree manipulates and argues your case for you - i.e. our elected representatives. And when you do manage to elect people with a modicum of wit, your laughable political system still allows a whole hoard of other uneducated red-neck fools to hog-tie any good ideas they might have. Your culture war is going to be the death of your country (possibly already has been).

So rather than slagging off and blaming the UK, why dont you ask why the greatest country in the world (believe it or not, I like America a lot) is being reduced to a laughing stock, is in depression, is populated by bloody fools and is being menaced by other pretenders to the super-power throne. Stop wasting time and sort it out for fucks sake, because I would rather you be the 'only superpower' than Russia or China.

We've allowed a certain sliver of the Financial Industry to buy unfettered control over our processes.  Other than that, while we may lack manners and a certain level of polish, we're no more foolish than anybody else.

Some would say the deed was done and all that has followed has been inevitable since the formation of the Federal Reserve in 1913.  I'd suggest that that itself was just a symptom of what began once we wiped out the Indians for all intents and purposes and controlled our country from coast to coast.  Having hit our first set of limits to acquisition, we started looking for other ways to continually expand.  Our entire model, financially and otherwise, relies on constant new resources and markets to assimilate.  Ours not being an infinite world, the contradictions loom.

I suppose as our Empire slips through our fingers we'll have to hear all sorts of lectures from the likes of Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Turkey; Good Lord, why not Italy and Macedonia while we're at it.  We'll do at least as poorly as you all did, you may be assured.

Everyone knows who the players are buckwheat. Now it's just a matter of sitting back and watching as they destroy themselves.

When somebody gets serious about kicking the piss out of those Persian bastards give me a nudge, otherwise this is just a lot of hot air blowing.

You'll get your wish, and live (perhaps) to regret it. The much bigger news(noise) of the day is that the perpetrator of the 12gauge Brevik-reduc incident in Istanbul today is already being id'd as a "Libyan national" who entered Turkey from Syria, and shouted out Allahu Akbar before going down in a hail of special forces scripted theatre. Of course.

These PNAC/CFR pricks are as subtle as a ton of bricks...insert slightly used Libyan {ALCIADA} asset into Syria, sent then onwards to the Bosphorus, and take a Mossad MuslimMartyr false flag incident to ramp up to your trademark 'boots on the ground' Humanitarian intervention...this time with the Turks selected as the PR-acceptable dupes who do the grunt work on behalf of their ZATO blackmailers...

You  are half right, half wit: the embassy thing is a SIDESHOWBOB event, to take it's place in the (very skewed)context of a needed provocation to convince the completely unengaged Turkic citizenry that they gonna be proud n happy to see their boys a dyin in a cause that is totally driven by the fear instilled into Erdogan and the AKK by the your bit for NATO or our PKK assets will take out your 'tourism-based economic miracle.'

The "Persian bastards" are not going to let ASSAD go down. Neither will the Russky bastards....the Chinese? that's your real wild card ASSHAT! 

Whichever way the dice roles from this moment lose....loser. If only your friends and neighbours did not have to suffer for your xenophobic insanity.

In other news:  AU\AG....Sudden Impact!

“Syria is a long-time ally of Iran. The Western powers and Israel are avid to tear apart Syria, thus dealing a severe blow to not only Iran, but Syria’s other allies, Lebanon’s Hezbullah and Palestine’s Hamas.

“Equally important, if Syria collapses, its highly strategic Golan Heights, annexed by Israel since 1967, will remain unchallenged in Israel’s hands. Golan is Israel’s primary source of ground water.

“A splintering Syria will be a catastrophe for the central Mideast. But the US, France, Israel and Britain are so blinded by their anti-Iran passion, they are ready to destroy Syria to get at Great Satan Iranian. That’s like burning down your house to get rid of mice.” – Eric Margolis, “The CIA-M16-Mossad War on Syria”

Anyone get the feeling that "some" country is preparing to nuke a U.S. city and make sure Iran gets the blame?

This is completely scripted, oooh it's Britain versus Iran! Meanwhile everyone knows it's war monger America pulling the strings. Their little war in Iraq is winding down, the one in Libya is closing shop...shit, who we gonna kill now? Gotta keep the economy humming during the we wouldn't want a bunch of pissed off 18-yr olds who are trained in automatic weapons use coming back to the home shores to add to the unemployed. Might be a whole lot of Norways happening all at once...
