I am not a great trader or a gifted entrepreneur. My contributions to this site ought to come from my scholarly expertise in speech and media analysis, but most of you see right through the bullshit of our leaders and the biased reporting of the media. So I’d like to offer a creative problem-solving side of my world. I work through new ideas by writing and through dialog with others. So I hope this post, and future ones, can begin fruitful dialog that helps new members get a firm grasp on our times and provides hungry ears to listen as our experienced members share their wisdom, experience, and practical knowledge. After all, we are preparing for the end of the Keynesian experiment and a transition into a new world. The stakes are as high as they get.
