Breitbart comments on the above study:

Report: Low Taxes, Less Regulations Bring American Prosperity

 

If you are considering moving and/or starting a small business, here is some very good advice.  Note that the smaller the percentage of the population that is employed by the government, the smaller the likelihood that the government is likely to bother you.  Indeed, its location, location, location.  If you are over 200 miles away from the bureaucrats’ office, they are a lot less likely to bother you because to do so means getting approval for an overnight trip, room and board, transportation, and more.  I have been running three businesses in my infra-red deep rural enclave for three decades without needing a single permit or license.  It helps a lot to live in a state with no income tax and in an area with no zoning, building permits, building codes, or business licenses.  Enjoy:

“ From the Breitbart News Desk

The standard rules of economics tell us that rapidly rising prices should curb demand, persuading people to pull back purchases when the stuff they want becomes too expensive. There’s often a certain logic to this strategy. High prices attract more supply, which brings prices back down. So holding off until supply rises to meet demand often makes sense.

Yet that strategy does not seem to be working well in many parts of the economy. Home prices have been skyrocketing for nearly a year with no end in sight. Used car prices have likewise been climbing, last month reaching the improbable crescendo of a ten percent monthly gain. Even categories of consumer electronics, like televisions, that seemed to always be dropping in price are climbing.

Consumer psychology may have reached a tipping point. At some point, mindsets flip from slowing purchases because prices are rising, to speeding them up because prices are rising. Richard Curtin, the longtime guru of the University of Michigan’s survey of consumer sentiment, noted last week that consumers may be adopting a “buy in advance” of future price hikes mindset.

That upward push in demand accelerates prices hikes, which creates further urgency to buy now. The ongoing fuel shortages in the Southeast and recent memories of shortages of consumer staples like toilet paper add fuel to this inflationary fire.

It’s not just consumers who have adopted an inflationary psychology. Businesses too are snatching up materials for fear of future shortages. Bloomberg recently interviewed Dennis Wolkin, the vice president of operations at Atlanta-based Colgate Mattress, a 35-employee company that sells products at Target stores and elsewhere. Even though polyurethane foam prices are up by more than 50 percent compared with pre-pandemic times, Wolkin says he would rather buy twice the amount he needs and look for warehouse space rather than reject orders from new customers. “Every company like us is going to overbuy,” he said.

Meanwhile, Fed officials tell us all this is transitory. High prices will run out of steam sometime this summer or early fall. That’s one thing that a lot of consumers and businesses are not buying in advance.

Beware!  The following link is from Bloomberg.  They report relevant facts but are worse than AWOL on analytical causation.  They are apparently unaware – either according to classical economics, Chicago School economics, or Austrian School economics  – as to the cause of what they report: vast hyper rapid inflation of the money supply by central banks, including,  especially, the Fed.

Another fine rant from Tucker Carlson, this one about the Pentagon and UFOs.  I do think that the current management of the Pentagon is a serious problem, and even a potentially existential threat to American security.  I also think that UFOs are real, but don’t think that they are a threat; if they were, they could have wiped us out or enslaved us decades – or millennia – ago.

The most important secret of the atomic bomb is that it is possible to build an atomic bomb. Once you know that, the rest is consistent with E=MC squared and the consequent physics and chemical engineering required to make that happen. While those steps are far from trivial, the real breakthrough is knowing that it can be done.

The most important secret of UFOs is that it is possible to build a UFO.  It is time to start thinking seriously about how to do that.  UFO flight dynamics are consistent with their being able to turn off the Higgs field combined with a magnetohydrodynamic plasma atmospheric drive.  I worked on a magnetohydrodynamic plasma Mach 18 wind tunnel over half a century ago under a US Navy contract (think re-entering ICBM warhead).

Basically, it was an electric motor where the armature was an electrically conducting fluid, ionized air.  No Higgs field means no mass, no gravity, and no inertia. Just what you need to make right angle turns at 13,000 miles per hour.  I don’t know how to turn off the Higgs field, but it is now pretty obvious that it is possible…
