Regulated Market Equilibrium

October 5, 2009

Business is guided by regulations. There is no ‘free market’, there never will be. We will always need regulation- even in anarchy we’re restricted physically. There is always an obligation to some sort of rule. So when a person is pushing for a ‘free market’ they’re really just looking for less regulations. (more…)

Working “Full” Time

September 25, 2009


Employers will always prefer to pay you cash instead of benefits. Benefits will ensure you are taken care of, cash is not so definite. When an employer pays cash only to full time employees, they only have an obligation to the pay rate- not to your needs. There is no guarantee full time employment for cash will support you. So what does “full” mean exactly? (more…)

Quality over Cost

September 14, 2009

I haven’t got a problem with money. ‘Money’ done properly could be a great system for keeping track of who’s done what and who deserves how much. The problem is that money is awarded not dependent on who is making the best contribution, but rather on who can turn the crank the fastest. (more…)

Pretty Lousy Democracy.

September 3, 2009


We spend a third of our lives working, preparing for work, or traveling to and from work. . . . .While you’re at work you have submitted to the will of a dictator. Whoever your boss is, you listen to him and do what he says. Sure you can protest, offer alternatives etc. . . .In the end he is the boss and he has the final say- there is no vote, there is no free election at work. (more…)

How to Raise and Care for Companies.

August 18, 2009

By now, you’ve surely welcomed a company into your home; how can you not? They’re so adorable and persistent. Companies have made it into my home in my groceries, my shopped goods, through the internet- I even get them through the phone. And look out the window, what do you see? Companies. Right now their is a cute little Ford snuggling up to a Honda on my street, a company is (more…)

Privatizing Currency

July 18, 2009


For most of my life i just assumed, as I’m sure most people do, that the money for a country is owned and printed by the government. Remember high school history class. The German government started recklessly printing cash after the war. Each individual bill became worth less, but the government was able to pay some expenses. A hyper inflation that devalued the currency so much people started trading money by the wheelbarrow. (more…)

For Whom the Road Tolls

July 7, 2009


Our dependence on cars is primitive. We have 3 million rich, technological people living together in Toronto who can’t build themselves more than two measly subway lines. On the grand scale of civilizations that’s pretty pathetic. European cities, subways all over the place, damn subway can drop you off in your own basement.

Fear of a Red Planet, the Fake Global Recession.

June 17, 2009

There is no such thing as a “global recession”. A recession occurs when a country is having a tough time for some reason. They are loosing out to other countries in the world and have to deal with less. You know, people stopped liking our bananas for a while or something and our jerk neighbour who produces mangoes is flourishing. (more…)

Remi On Liberty

June 1, 2009

Should all people just be able to do whatever they like or should we all be following some set of rules? Without rules we can’t have any real ownership and we can’t enforce that people don’t hurt each other. But rules are rules; as soon as we make any we are taking away liberty. Real freedom is thereby only possible if people are perfectly suited to living amongst one another law free. (more…)

How to win at Globalization

May 25, 2009


The old conservative principle was to help business to better the national economy. Sure they’re a dirty oil company, but their OUR dirty oil company. Cut corporate taxes to support them, subsidies to encourage growth, ease regulations, which in turn benefits us all- like giving the ball to your fastest player. (more…)
