If We Don't Change The Way Money Is Created, Social Disorder Is Inevitable

The status quo "solution" is Universal Basic Income (UBI), a form of subsistence designed to quell the righteous urge to throw off the monetary yoke of the privileged financial Elites. If scraping by as a debt-serf on UBI is the New American Dream, we need a new economic/social system.

Remembering A Still Falling Hero: Small Business

Being an American businessman, regardless of ethnicity, political class, economic class, religious persuasion, gender, or anything else, embodied everything the American principle was created for and rose upon. What is taking shape today, and what’s worse – growing – is anything but.

Kushner Companies Seen Hawking Shady US-Visa-Buying-Residency Program To Wealthy Chinese

Like so much else in this fake economy, the EB-5 visa program is an unethical racket that uses a government program originally designed to help struggling communities to further help the already wealthy by funneling cheap financing to luxury property development.

Those urban regions that pursue the hierarchical, one "solution" fits all, high-cost bureaucratic model of central states will sink into the same cesspool of corruption, cronyism, sclerosis and failure to adapt that characterize central states.

"Solutions Abound" To Crush The Crony Cartels

Rather than bemoan the inevitable failure of centralized "fixes," let's turn our attention and efforts to the real solutions: decentralized, networked, localized.

Great Moments In Local Government Tyranny

We focus most of our ire on the federal government because bad policy from Washington is the biggest threat to our nation’s freedom and prosperity. But we also get plenty of bad policy from other levels of government...

The Road To Hell Was Paved With Obama Cronyism
