Having taken an interest in economics and having been a practitioner of business, I try to write as clearly as I can my understanding of events today. I think we are at a critical point in American history and also in world history. I think that a crew of racketeers has bumbled into dominance of the world’s financial system. They are more than happy to drive the world off a cliff, as long as their behinds are protected. Since their current strategy brings everyone else down except for themselves, this will continue until they are stopped.
I’ll be blunt. I look around, and my generation, the boomers, and the generation just after us, Gen X, have collectively shown themselves to be, perhaps the most selfish generation in American history. We are also, collectively, an alarmingly easy pair of generations to con. As a consequence, we have destroyed the futures of the generation coming of age today.
Knowledge. It makes a difference. I hope to be helpful that way to my readers. I appreciate real questions a lot. Nothing is too silly to ask. But I do not appreciate, nor suffer gladly, the attentions of ideologues uninterested in thinking.
