ar-logo1Economic Democracies have  been living exponentially. It’s a big word, and it’s a big concept.

What it boils down to is this; that nobody alive in any culture of “progress” today knows anything other than bigger. Alternatively, if you like, all participants in democratic free markets have the shared expectation that they will have more tomorrow than they did today. In fact, we can go further and say that anything other than more, bigger, or better represents a failure of our governance that we all battle with equal fear, and vigor.

Where Have the Righteous Been For 30 Years?

It’s a fact – nobody was bitching about the “Masters of the Universe” while they were driving America’s asset values shy high.

It is a tad rich that now, when the system everybody helped build  – and enjoyed exponentially – has collapsed under its own bubble thin weight, the knives re out for a few good men who made it all so, and for so long.

Brazilian President Calls a Spade, a Spade

Why should the poor of the earth (who are very non blue eyed and white) have to pay for the excesses of the rich?

Good question.

weber-logo1I’ve been married 24 years, and during those two-plus decades I’ve traveled twice with my wife to the Bahamas, once on our honeymoon and again the following year.

Fast-forward another ten vacation-less years.  I left a job that was threatening a pay cutback, breathed life into my own company, pulled the plug on its life-support during the 90’s recession then rewarded myself after finishing Teachers’ College with a four-day vacation to Vegas.

It rained for three days.

Killed By Nutbar, Not The Web

Why are we always so quick to demonize the web?

Dude meets stranger in the bar. Have drinks, yap a bit, and agree to go back to a private setting for sex. It has been done that way since the dawn of drinking in bars. It has always been dangerous, it has always had the risk of violence, and it has always been the first object of social networking anywhere and at anytime. Sex. In a private place. Mostly.

With the internet and social networking phenomenon like Facebook, MySpace, and a host of others, the “dating” ritual is safer by magnitudes.

Prior to “hooking up”, people can now get a far better picture of a “stranger” with only a name to go by. They can see who their friends are, what kind of music they like, where they live, work, and go to school. All really important stuff if you are going to meet a stranger in a dark place, alone. At worst, it saves you wasting your time, and at best it can save your life.

The media always wants to vilify the net at every opportunity, however if they – or law enforcement – want to help the public, they would urge greater use and understanding of the information available on the web.

U2 Tower, Waterford Crystal Gone

As unemployment shoots through the ‘teens, the stoic Irish accept their lot. Great people, the Irish.

Except they hate bankers too.

Fundamentals Still Unaddressed

While individual nations try and save themselves, the real problem is the international system that created the mess. This will require global solutions not just in finance, but across the socioeconomic spectrum.

Currently, the effort has been directed at putting us back where we were before the “Black Swan” hit, a false premise to begin with as our last lives were built on unsustainable bubbles. Anybody who thinks the value of their home is going to ever return to where it was before is…nutz.

No.

It was, however, the most popular question posed to him.

Why?
