Staten, sedelpressar och byråkrater
Dollarn, hyresmarknaden, skatter, fed, Japan mm.

The airline industry has clearly been prone to booms and busts for decades. Yet instead of planning for hard times, these corporate welfare machines called "airlines" use resources to inflate stock value and pad executive salaries.

JAPAN
Whatever happens with the virus, the real story, the real historical change, is probably economic. Abenomics—Japan's ultra-Keynesian experiment—seems to be dead.

ENTREPRENÖREN
Some anticapitalists have tried to claim "good" entrepreneurs don't make profit the primary goal. Yet, without profit, an entrepreneur cannot serve the people who depend on him or her for goods and services.

“JÄMLIKHET”
Egalitarians think that equality has intrinsic value: they advocate it for its own sake, not just to forestall bad consequences. But why is a situation in which some in it have been made better off, and none worse off, worse than one of equality?

FÖRETAGANDETS VILLKOR NÄR STATEN ÄR FÖR STOR OCH STARK
Hey… This crisis is really getting bad. Did you hear? Exxon and Mobil had to lay off 25 congressmen.

SEDELPRESSAR ÄR INTE SAMMA SAK SOM RIKTIG PRODUKTION AV VAROR OCH TJÄNSTER
The truth is that you and I need goods and services to live, not electronically printed dollars.

As the central bank continues to pick winners and losers with its profligate monetary policy, social divisions will worsen.

JAPAN
The popular narrative is that demographics are driving Japan's declining worker productivity. But the real culprit is government regulations and a lack of entrepreneurship.

HYRESMARKNADEN
Both renters and landlords have plenty of troubles when it comes to working together. But putting government regulators in the mix won't help matters.

BYRÅKRATER
Bureaucrats cannot conjure wealth from nothing. They only have what they extract from the private sector.

Unfortunately, the bureaucrats are now starving the private sector of funding while making government budgets ever larger.

Central banks have created a brittle economy without real savings and without much room to maneuver. Central banks now want more of the same in a bid to fix what they broke.

Many Americans could die in the coming weeks and months thanks to the FDA’s blockade on coronavirus testing.

Should we consider those victims as martyrs for the principle of bureaucratic supremacy?

It is precisely during a crisis that private property, the price mechanism, and the profit and loss system are most important, and when the government can do the most damage.

The various levels of government in Canada have responded to the coronavirus pandemic. Their ill-advised solutions are to inflict economic hardship and withdraw civil liberties.

The longer these authoritarian policies persist, the greater the risk to the social fabric.

JESSE FELDER
It’s been almost five years since I wrote, “It’s Time To Get Greedy In The Gold Market.” Gold prices have risen from under $1,100 an ounce to roughly $1,600 an ounce today, almost doubling the return in the S&P 500. And there are a couple of reasons to expect that this relative outperformance has only just begun.

THE FED
Can the US dollar lose its global reserve position? Sure it can, but not to a country that decides to commit the same monetary follies as the Fed. Most countries are trying to out-inflate the Fed. And that's good for the Fed.

We are about to enter a production slowdown—a collapse, really—not because some businesses miscalculated their investments, but because government intervened drastically and without warning to shut down all businesses.

TRANSAKTIONSSKATT
Bernie Sanders wants a tax on financial transactions so that every trade brings a penalty. While this most directly affects big traders, regular people will not be immune to the effects.
