Must Read “Leftovers”

September 22, 2015

Bernie Sanders’ War On Chinese Bobbleheads, at reason.com. Protectionist trade policies like the ones socialists like Bernie Sanders pushes, sound similar to many of the things Donald Trump says about trade with China. These policies sound plausible at first glance, which is why many people fall for these ideas. If people would look below the surface at the economic reality of these policies they wouldn’t be fooled by slick or ignorant politicians. This short video should help.

This is just my subjective value judgement; I think economics is much more riveting when explained by an attractive woman with an Australian accent.

On Third World Sweatshops, at economicpolicyjournal.com. Many sanctimonious do gooders want wages payed to these workers increased, even though they freely chose to work in these “sweatshops”. These do gooders want to export minimum wage (floors) laws to these third world countries. Do they understand that Minimum Wage Laws Create Unemployment? How can we expect them to understand what the results will be in other countries when  they are ignorantly pushing the same policies in our country.

First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech…....  I don’t see how this can be construed to mean anything else.

Hillary Clinton Says Female Sexual Assault Accusers ‘Have A Right to Be Believed‘, at dailymail.co.uk. Don’t listen to what Hillary Clinton says. Look at her past actions when she had opportunities to believe female sexual assault accusers. “What you do speaks so loudly, that what you say I can’t hear.

FREE MARKETS LOWER PRICES

Uber For Helicopters In NYC, by Mark J. Perry, at aei.org. The Uber model for transportation via helicopters. Gotham Air charges $219 per person. It would normally cost close to $1000 to charter a helicopter. Lower prices through technological advances in relatively free markets.

Cheap Gear Disrupts Commercial Video Industry, at nalert.blogspot.com. This is how an economy is supposed to work. Prices should go down (deflation) over time as productivity and advancing technology make things less costly to produce. Most people think that increasing prices (inflation = printing money) is how an economy is supposed to work. Prices will generally go down if the money supply can’t be increased easily. Prices will go up if money can be created out of thin air via the printing press. I saw this at Mark J. Perry’s carpediem blog.

Theranos, With Walgreens, Revolutionizes Healthcare, at brandchannel.com. Technology is bringing down the cost of healthcare. Theranos can test blood for multiple medical conditions at a 50 to 90 percent lower cost needing only one drop of blood. Do you think the status quo testing labs are happy about this? No, but the consumer is. It will be interesting to see how technological advances like this lower the cost of healthcare while at the same time Obamacare is increasing the cost of healthcare. The Republicans shouldn’t be saying repeal and replace, they should be saying repeal and let the free market work it’s cost reducing magic. This is a great article that I saw at Mark J. Perry’s carpediem blog.
