  1. I’m going to next Anarchapulco for three months! Do you have a real estate agent to suggest? I want to be your neighbor, Jeff. Great tips in this video, thanks.

  2. Jeff. Your teeth are yellow. WTF. Please get teeth whitening. You are becoming a Mexican! #buildthewall

  3. I agree with holding some gold and silver. Cryptos have been a great speculation and may continue to be but you have to have your core wealth in precious metals and real estate:)

  4. Centrist dem-rep conservative-Labor has become very sports team like.

    Everyone who cares to know knows the 10,009 foot view of how central banks work. Why people think it is a nebulous conspiracy is beyond me. What is hard to understand is how much the direct counter parties of the fed open market operations, TARP I, II…n, and the discount window benefit from the system. If the government increased the money supply by buying bonds they I own, I could spend that money and get a bit more for my money than the hundredth, thousandth, etc. person who got their hands on that same dollar, because eventually that money would raise prices in general (or prevent prices from dropping as much). But how do you quantify that?

  5. I like Austrian economics, and think that ABCT has a lot to add to understanding the business cycle puzzle, but I don’t think. Keynesianism and monetarism are completely wrong either. I just think that Keynesianism is badly abused by politicians, I think that the Keynesian multiplier is pretty much 1 or a little more than 1, and that the ISLM liquidity trap is very powerful. So, politicians should assume that money borrowed and spent, even on the most well-designed today is largely going to steal prosperity now from the next generation’s prosperity, and will be quite limited in its effectiveness. because it is subject to the ISLM liquidity trap, and to ABCT capital investment term class mis-alignment and volatility disruptions.

    So I think governments should follow a laissez fare economic policy. I think most of the powers of governments should be allocated to small, local, minarchist, night watchmen/home-owner’s Association-like communities, towns, and rural counties.

    I would add, however a basic food, medical care, and shelter programs for the destitute (in the form of very small apartments and emergency shelters for the homeless, and good and medical care for the very poor ( like the bottom 5 to 10 percent of households).

    I think that larger federations should exist only for defensive military security and settling inter-community disputes, disputes involving parties from different communities; in other words a very limited very grass-roots government sub-division-centered government.

    Basically I’d gut everything but the courts and police from Federal and state governments, and throw out all statutes, leaving an extremely limited common law system. At the Federal level, the only additional stated power (the only other power) would be defensive collective defense against eminent threats.

    Other functions, limited to those above I’d leave to subdivisions. Effectively, this is center-libertarian distributism.

    I would prefer to go further, but don’t have enough faith in the goodness of man to provide for the poor for example. If this effective charity institutions became universal, I would strip that power from local governments. If alternative dispute-resolution could be shown capable of handling every eventuality, I’d support wholly privatizing courts and police. If international war was made extremely unlikely, for the foreseeable future, it consider privatizing that function to militias.
