The Remi Review Episode 16 – Capitalism

January 14, 2013

People who save money have it stolen through tax/interest and inflation. You can’t have Capitalism without capital flowing around and a fair system of trade! This isn’t Capitalism. They’ll blame the wealthy, but tax people with retirement savings to solve the current debt problem. Does anyone actually believe the rich pay taxes anyways?!? Also Toothbrushes and Rogers Comm and a tune by Remi at the end!

The Remi Review Episode 14 – Crank Turners

Saving the World

February 19, 2010


Your best option, make buttons. Most of the world’s problems can be solved through arts and crafts. Making fun from crap can save the world, singing a song can feed a starving family for weeks, wearing the ribbon immediately qualifies you as a doctor working hard to find the hue. (more…)

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.

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…)

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…)

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…)

Working an Ethical Job

May 5, 2009


A very small percentage of the global population is engaged in fulfilling humanity’s needs while at work. Engineers are drawing up faster breaking cell phones, mathematicians assess market data, artists make commercials, philosophers become lawyers, and scientists design make-up for dogs. (more…)

Value

April 24, 2009


Does the value of a thing determine its price? Valuable things do often carry a high price. Does the price of a thing determine the value? Expensive things are often quite valuable. Are the value and price essentially the same thing? Does the bear shit in the woods? If the dog hadn’t stopped to piss he would have caught the rabbit. (more…)

Culture Has a Longer Shelf Life Than Business.

April 14, 2009


Unlike the Mona Lisa, or ‘Good Day Sunshine’, companies are essentially just a collection of documents that pertain to each other and people following the instruction of those documents. A system in constant flux, much like human identities. (more…)
