7 Deadly Habits of A Highly Dysfunctional Economy

In a recent lecture at Columbia University, Investment U Chairman Mark Skousen succintly summarized the over 20 years of disastrous economic policies that today have Americans skating on "thin ice."
  1. An overreacting Fed, switching from "easy money" to "tight money." The Fed has been a major source of instability in the financial system. For example, Greenspan was chairman for 19 years, and switched policies seven times! The Fed often overshot its target on both ends - raising interest rates too high in 1989, 1994, and now, and pushing them too low in 1992 and 2003.

  2. Inflation and structural imbalances. The Fed's "easy money" policy caused in part the "irrational exuberance" of the tech stock market bubble in the late 1990s and the real estate bubble in this decade. When the bubble bursts, as it inevitably must, the effects aren't pretty.

  3. Poor consumer/investor finances. Our government policies promote overspending and undersaving on a massive scale. The saving rate has turned negative, and household debt as a percentage of disposable income is at a dangerous level, exceeding 150%.

  4. A vulnerable [read: corrupt] financial/banking system. We live in a global laissez-faire financial system that is highly leveraged with debt financing, derivatives and fractional reserve banking. Hedge funds are not really "hedged," but highly speculative, and another collapse along the lines of Long-Term Capital Management in 1997 could be disastrous.

  5. Trade deficits and out-of-balance capital flows. The trade deficit is at record levels. To make up this imbalance, foreigners must invest $2 billion a day in the U.S.

  6. Overburdened federal debt levels, unfunded liabilities and rising interest rates. The Senate just raised the national debt ceiling to $9 trillion, representing 70% of GDP. Interest expense is now the third-largest category of the federal budget, only exceeded by defense spending and domestic welfare expenditures. Imagine the impact as interest rates start climbing again.

  7. The rising cost of war/natural disasters. Last year, we faced a large jump in the deficit as a result of the rising costs of the war in Iraq and the expenses related to the Gulf hurricanes.
They offer VERY powerful lessons for those who care to build a highly effective economy, the most important of which is number 6.

Collecting taxes to pay interest is the mother of all scams. You CANNOT collect money that you've never issued.

Yes, but note "consumer confidence" which Greenspan always emphasized. The elders (the "greatest generation," as named by Jews for murdering the Germans) and the "Judeo-Christians" (JCs) continue to back and uphold Bush II and "neo-con" (Jew) conspiracy with its sublime "Jews-media" working its charms upon the minds of elders and JCs.

Two billion dollars a day?--hey, no problem, as Bush II, taking his cue fm Jews and Israelis will just threaten to nuke anyone who doesn't cooperate; Jews-media will make it sound and look good for the elders and JCs.

Thus the overthrow of the Fed fraud requires something for culture-wide dramatics to accompany--an emphatic Christian antisemitism--like the Constantinian Christian cultural revolution of 4th century which revived the Roman empire somewhat, briefly, yet still quite significantly.

Of course the problem is NOT only and merely one of Jews as there are their co-conspirators among the gentiles, the "Sadduceans" of modern-day: these will be handled by means of straight-out RATIONALIZATION of the culture. For example the idiot theology of the JCs must be exposed for the putridity it really is, JCs finally learning Jews are nothing but followers of Pharisees, murderers of Christ, this simply according to the strict literature.

And antisemitism, so heretofore repressed, is just that dramatic element that is missing and so necessary; soon it must break out in all its justice and fury; all our rationalist inspiration must be used to see it accomplishes the necessary purpose by which Jews are eliminated--but no less than their "Sadducean" co-conspirators.

Let's pretend that Jews never lived. Let's see what the world would look like without Jews. Hmm...

This is a list of famous Jewish inventors.


Some of the items Jews invented include...

Solar-powered vehicle
Video tape machine
Incubator for premie babies
Supersonic flight
Cataract surgery
Deaf-mute language
Vaccination need
Electron microscope

The list goes on.

List of Jewish scientists and philosophers...


List of Jewish Nobel Prize winners


Included in that list are...

Albert Einstein - father of modern physics
Niels Bohr - quantum model of the atom

Actually, I cannot even write it all out. The list is too long.

Famed Jewish linguists...


Famed Jewish historians...


According to your pea-sized brain, all these people, who have immeasurably advanced the world, should never have lived or should die now.

You are a moron who simply wastes space on this planet to believe that somehow the world would be better off without Jews. I would not want to live in a world without these amazing contributors to the world.

As far as your "worldwide conspiracy" goes, it is nonsensical delusions. Have fun wearing your tin foil hat!

"Miss R" So Frustrated By Internet Info Exposing Jews
(Mighty Thor, 7 Apr 06)

Right Jew: what is the Federal Reserve Bank counterfeiting scam but a Jew conspiracy--Jews of course conspiring necessarily w. "Sadducean"-style cohorts among the gentiles, betraying their own people for their Jew-paymasters. Ck "Creature From Jekyll Island" by G.Edward Griffin.

"Wikipedia" is Jew collection of lies serving Jews and their frauds and conspiracies; just see Judicial-inc.biz. Jews are simply topmost criminals, frauds, and conspirators; they invent nothing but lies, including the fables they're "inventors" of anything.

Jews dominated the fraudulent fractional-reserve banking racket fm 14th cent. according to half-way honest Jew, Bernard Lazare, in his amazing work, "Antisemitism," published back in 1894.

Humanity will ever find ways to be at war with one another, ultimately, but fact remains Jews presently lead the killers and warmongers, organizing them and urging them on by means of such as aforementioned "Jews-media." See Michael Collins Piper's "The New Jerusalem" for facts on Jews' control of organized crime for just another example.

World liberation depends upon continuing and growing antisemitism, antisemitism humanity's duty to God.

CONCLUSION: Yes humanity is quite doomed for incessant warfare, but fact remains that at this particular moment, if we eliminated Jews, everything would be quite calm, and it would be quite awhile before humanity was back at war w. one another in similar fashion as now. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

Wikipedia is a public source operation. Anyone can edit it, even you and your hatred filled ilk can. That said, there are certain standards edits must meet - namely, linking to sources.

You are denying that some of the greatest scientists, artists, inventors, and statesmen are Jewish?


Are some Jews attached to the Fed? Sure. Greenspan was Jewish. But then so are Christians. In fact, if you want to go by sheer influence, Christians far dominate the world.

"Miss R" Reduces Absurdly For Logic
(Mighty Thor, 8 Apr 06)

Yes "Miss R," we hate Jew liars like u, but note that makes us rational for hating u as u deserve to be hated. Don't doubt we realize evermore we must keep our rational wits in order to defend against enemies and criminals like u.

Yes, Jews are known numerologistical mystics, but they're primarily criminals and frauds, considering it all justified as they wage war upon the world approved by their war-God, this all given in Talmud by rabbis. (See Michael A. Hoffman II's "Judaism's Strange Gods.")

When ownership of Federal Reserve Bank counterfeiting fraud is analyzed we see Jew banks, owned by Jews, far dominating. Of course Jews conspire with corrupt gentile accomplices. Author Vic Thorn noted top ownership of Fed shares is by Jew banks run by Jews for the top ten to twelve stockholders, commercial banks.

"Dominating the world"--like big bro.?--these are unquestionably Jews like those in the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR--see JBS.org) behind the United Nations (UN) conspiracy.

Thus Jews and bankers behind the scenes present a charade of "good cop vs. bad cop"--Israel versus UN. Lower-level Jews like u, "Miss R," are trained to favor Israel and pretend America's fate rests best in Israel's hands against the pretended "bad-cop" "communist" UN.

U then so dutifully seek to project this idiot's charade upon gentiles and people of US u consider stupid and inferior, this for ur traitor's cause of Israel's interests above the United States. U ARE A LIAR AND A TRAITOR, MISS R, AN ENEMY OF WHITE PEOPLE, CHRISTIANS, AND THE USA, AS ARE ALL JEWS NECESSARILY by the nature of Judaism and Talmud. Jews are collectivistic conspirators by religion.

What's the problem w. the world?--well life is tragic as the Greeks teach, and ONE notable specific reason is Jew liars and conspirators backed by lower-level Jew-liars like u, Miss R.

Thus if we the people eliminated Jews, we'd achieve an immediate alleviation of present and current problems, undoubtedly.

As the Spenglerian "Decline of the West" continues, the cyclic problem simply increases for poignancy. Danger is Jew disease-of-opportunity parasite will eventually kill the host-victim, the goyim. Then lower-level Jews like u, Miss R, will be "given-up" by ur Jew masters, leaders, and rabbis, these for example, of the UN, connected therewith.

Thus by eliminating Fed counterfeiting fraud we effectively destroy the greatest weapon and instrument for Jew conspiracy; this then is the great, immediate, concrete, practical and political objective for plan. The larger abstract culture will require greater antisemitism, hence greater RATIONALIZATION, simply for info of the people as regarding Jew crime and conspiracy.

CONCLUSION: It is thus reason (information, internet, and blogging) leading to antisemitism, humanity's duty to God. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

Nothing you said in any way refutes what I said. Some of the most brilliant, artistic, and peace loving people in the world have been and are Jews. I linked you to a site that lists them.

If you refute that, you are merely a liar.

Have fun in your fantasy land.

"Miss R" Overlooks Obligatory Talmudic Subjectivity
(Mighty Thor, 9 Apr 06)

But "Miss R"--that's just the pt.: Christian New Testament affirms an objective, God-given reality. U Jews deny objectivity and pretend u're special--in secular form, that u're "persecuted" and not psychotic conspiratorial criminals, specializing in the lie (subjectivism), according to ur Talmud, then ur "Kol Nidre" prayer, promoting and absolving in advance ur Jew-lying technique.

CONCLUSION: Ur Talmud, Miss R, that's what indicts u, one (1)--and then, two (2), ur Jews' record for treachery, fraud, and mass-murder which u celebrate at ur murderous "Purim" holyday, for another example. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor
