“The PC principle is to always treat your employees exactly as you want them to treat your best customers.” –Stephen R.

A Case of Chronic Wage Deflation

In my last article on income inequality, we addressed the subjects of speculation, government enforced institutions, and monopolies. We found that all have rent-seeking qualities that do not add real economic value. Instead, they either maintain the status quo or shrink our economy. Our economy grows when tangible products or services are offered. Money is, […]

Deep Thoughts: Rare Intelligence

“If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson- Becoming something requires us filling our minds with that which we desire to become.

Deep Thoughts: Morals

The Epitome of Rent-Seeking

Last article, I focused on rent-seeking from its theoretical fabric. As a quick recap, rent-seeking is when someone seeks economic gain without reciprocating back any benefits. Rent-seeking is coerced trade. Today, I am going to explain speculative markets, government sanctioned markets, and monopolies; all of which are either directly or indirectly rent-seeking. To understand speculation, […]

Deep Thoughts: Ideas put into Action

Image by

“Truly, ‘thoughts are things,’ and powerful things at that, when they are mixed with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire for their translation.” –Napoleon Hill- Every great discovery begins with an idea and comes to fruition with a flurry of action to bring it about. Both parts are needed. Without the idea, action […]

Deep Thought: Desires.


“What we desire, overtime, is what we will eventually become.” –Neal A. Maxwell- Every one of us comes to the proverbial fork in the road, just as Alice in Wonderland did. We all, as well, have the Cheshire cat there to give us advice. “Which road do I take,” we all undoubtedly ask. It is […]
