Like what the F man?

Doesn't the government regulate doctors (licenses), driving licenses, commercial license, business license, construction license?


So this is complete BS. If someone is a smart person and studied alot of medicine with his own time, but can't afford to get a doctor's license, why shouldn't he be able to practice his skills? Complete BS. Why does the government always have to stick its nose everywhere and regulate how many doctors get licenses etc?

What about construction? If someone designed a good skyscraper architecture and a client was willing to buy it, why the F does the government have to get in the middle of the 2 and regulate it? So BS.


F the government.

Yeah but it is BS that I'm not even allowed to open my own shop to sell candy or munchies without the government getting in my face and forcing me to get a damn license for it and pay commercial taxes. WTF

Because we elected a President and Congress who told us that we're too stupid to make decisions for ourselves, so Big Mommy Government in Washington will take care of everything for us.

Who else could have had the wisdom and forsight to slash interest rates over the better part of the last decade?

There's no problem paper can't fix!

Well, this is even better. The Fed is buying bonds to keep interest rate down, while the Treasury is printing bonds and selling them like crazy so they can raise the money to fund the Central Planners' spending plans. :D Cool huh? That ought to work.

Well, slashing rates is great and all but eventually you get too close to 0 and you have to start getting creative

Why not go negative?



At one of my recent Harvard seminars, a graduate student proposed a clever scheme to [make holding money less attractive].

Imagine that the Fed were to announce that, a year from today, it would pick a digit from zero to 9 out of a hat. All currency with a serial number ending in that digit would no longer be legal tender. Suddenly, the expected return to holding currency would become negative 10 percent.

That move would free the Fed to cut interest rates below zero. People would be delighted to lend money at negative 3 percent, since losing 3 percent is better than losing 10.

Of course, some people might decide that at those rates, they would rather spend the money ? for example, by buying a new car. But because expanding aggregate demand is precisely the goal of the interest rate cut, such an incentive isn?t a flaw ? it?s a benefit.


There are so huge wackjobs in this world.

Quoted that part from a response to it here....
