ECONOMIC and ENVIRONMENTAL “APOCALYPTIC” CATASTROPHES “SYNERGIZE” …

a TALE of TWO CITIES … “CLIMATE CHANGE[s]” …

fighting ECONOMIC “ENVIRONMENTalism”

a TALE of TWO ECONOMISTS … HAYEK vs KEYNES …

TWO “ECONOMIES” … VISIONS in COLLISION

FIRST … A LITTLE ECONOMIC HISTORY …

check out Economics Xtreme.comHMSEconomics.comAsk Econ Guru.comHMSEconEducation.org

a CHANGE of ECONOMIC CLIMATE … today … yesterday … tomorrow

HAYEK vs KEYNES … (a historical “boxing match”)

ECONOMIC “CYCLES” … “BOOM” and “BUST”

today … yesterday … tomorrow …

A MATTER of BOULDERS and MOUNTAINS …

HAYEK … THATCHER-REAGAN-TRUMP … BOOM

ECONOMIC “ROCKET SCIENCE” …

REMOVE ECONOMIC BURDENS

BOULDERS … TAXES (redistribution of wealth)

MOUNTAINS … GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS (which cost TRILLION$ each year)

BURDEN “The FORGOTTEN MAN” … (like modern-day SYSYPHUS pushing a boulder up a hill)

THEN “LEVEL” the MOUNTAIN of CHINESE COLLUSION

CHINAS PLAYS ON “LEVEL” FIELD WITHOUT STEALING and “FIXED” MARKETS …

AN AMERICAN ECONOMY SURGES …

BOOM … BUT BECAUSE of “ORANGE HAIR MAN” … (who likes Hayek)

BUST

PRESIDENTIAL PUPPET …

RESTORE TAX BOULDERS and REGULATION MOUNTAINS ONTO “FORGOTTEN MAN” …

ADD-DOUBLE ENERGY TAX-COSTS … USE DUBIOUS EVIRONMENTAL “CLIMATE” CHANGE to BURDERN AMERICAN INDUSTRY and “

PART of a GLOBAL EFFORT on the “ROAD to SERFDOM

KILL DOMESTIC ECONOMIC GROWTH and PRODUCTIVITY and INTERNATIONAL COMPETITIVE-ness

KEYNES – BUST (state-dominated – controlled economy)

HAYEK: AN ECONOMIC BOOM “MAGICALLY” APPEARS …

maintaining “the system” (“altruism”) vs “GAMING” the system (“alienation”) …

“you Can’t Get Something for Nothing” … costs … choices … consequences

HAYEK DOMINATED (on the “foundation” of Adam Smith, Hamilton and Alfred Marshall) … REVOLUTIONARY “OLD-SCHOOL” INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION … “The Great Enrichment” … a global boon and blessing …

a “radical experiment” in FREEDOM and PROSPERITY …

then came Marx in “reaction” (1848- )…

a radical experiment AGAINST freedom and prosperity …

the WAR … BATTLE between INDIVIDUAL and STATE …

KEYNES “WON OUT” (1930s – Great Depression) …

THEN HAYEK “BATTLED BACK” (1970s-80s … Thatcher-Reagan) … “ROUND TWO”

THEN A “MIXED BAG” … progressive-conservatism and conservative-progressivism …

an ECONOMIC “SLUGFEST” …

MIXED “FREE” and “FASCIST” … (“fixed” markets … “crony” capitalism … “collusion” – govt.-corporate giants vs the little “forgotten man”)

then BACK to KEYNES-ian “intervention” … Bush 2001 … 2008 … Obama 2009

BOOM … BUST … BOOM … BUST … ETC. … “natural” economic cycles …

“CONVERSION” from MILTON FRIEDMAN LAISSEZ-FAIRE ECONOMIC HIGH-PERFORMANCE …

CANCELED

WHY HAVE “HAYEK” WHEN WE CAN HAVE “KEYNES” ?

WISHFUL THINKING vs “The ROAD to SERFDOM” …

WHERE KEYNES SOUNDS “SMART” and THEORETICALLY “WORKS”

OOOPS … KEYNES NEVER “WORKED” ANYWHERE in HISTORY … NOT the 1930s … 1970s STAGFLATION … 2001 … 2007 BUSH … 2009 OBAMA

Wall Street SCANDAL … AGAIN

GOVERNMENT vs GAMING

PROTECTING “THE MARKET” … VS GAMING the SYSTEM

MAIN Street VS WALL Street & “K” STREET

maintaining “the system” (“altruism”) vs “GAMING” the system (“alienation”) …

“Get rich quick … Getting something for nothing” … speculation …

“you Can’t Get Something for Nothing” … costs … choices … consequences

EXCEPT from GOVERNMENT … VOTE YOURSELF MONEY … AT PUBLIC EXPENSE …

the economic “problem” – “INVESTMENT” vs “GAMBLING” (“all mixed up”

The POWER of UTOPIAN (nowhere) WISHFUL THINKING …

there is a “SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE” ...

GOVERNMENT “INTERVENTION” MAKES THINGS “WORSE”

RESULTS … NOT INTENTIONS

“REVISIONIST” HISTORY … STILL TRUE …

SURE, ALMOST ANYBODY NOT WEIGHED-DOWN by EXCESSIVE GOVERNMENT REGULATION[s] … ONEROUS, CONFISCATORY TAXES … an APPRECIATION of a CULTURE of HISTORICALLY “EXCEPTIONAL” ENTERPRISE and WORK ETHIC … HYPOCRITES WHO DECRY “GREED” … while DEVOURING with DECEPTIVE “ENVY” … communist cannibalism

in “EVIL” AMERICA ANYONE CAN GET “RICH”

ANY “SCHMO” CAN ENJOY RELATIVE WEALTH and FREEDOM in an “EXCEPTIONAL” COUNTRY … IT TAKES SOME SERIOUS MARXIST “ALIENATION” TO MAKE the WHOLE WORLD MISERABLE

“LEVEL-ing EVERYBODY LOW in EQUALITY of MISERY in SLAVERY …

LOBSTER SYNDROME …

TOCQUEVILLE SAID MOST PREFER EQUALITY in SLAVERY

MOST ACCEPT “SLAVERY” as MUCH PREFERABLE to the “BURDENS” of FREEDOM, SELF-GOVERNMENT and RESPONSIBILITY …

SOME “REAL” SELF-LOATHING and SUICIDAL SHAME in enjoying some success in a tragically sad and dismal existence

ECONOMIC … “APOCALYPSE” …

The ROAD to SERFDOM …

NOW to SPORTS … STU …

“CLIMATE CHANGE II” …

a ‘NEW” and EXCITING “ZERO-SUM” ATMOSPHERE of “EQUALITY in MISERY”

IS SELF-MANUFACTURED MISERY CONFINED to ECONOMICS? …

OR CAN-DOES IT APPLY to SPORTS?

I GREW UP a FORTY-NINERS FAN

WE WON FIVE SUPER-BOWLS (losing two in exciting manner) PLAYING WITH an ENTERTAINING “WEST COAST OFFENSE” STYLE of PLAY … that was successful and exciting …

WHY CAN’T WE BE MORE LIKE the EAGLES or LIONS?

ANYONE CAN BE “GOOD” … BEING “BAD” is EXCEPTIONALLY “HISTORIC” … (2016 LIONS – 0-16 … PERFECTION!!!)

FLY EAGLES FLY … DID YOU SEE THAT ONE SUPERBOWL … THAT ONE YEAR? AMAZING! … SINCE THEN …

PHILLY FAN … KEEP BOOING SANTA CLAUS … GETTING THROWN IN TO “the DRUNK TANK” at the STADIUM … CHEERING WHEN MICHAEL IRVIN GOES DOWN TEMPORARILY IN PARALYSIS … THROWING BATTERIES at J.D. DREW … NOW CARSON WENTZ … GOOD LUCK WITH “ALL THAT” …

IT COULD BE a LOT WORSE … AT LEAST I AM NOT a BEARS FAN

“CHANGE” in the NAME of DYSTOPIAN DELUSION …

BETTER the DEVIL WE KNOW

IS THERE a “MARKET” FOR MISERY?

YES. THAT is WHY MARX-ism STILL EXISTS and APPEALS …

AND WHY PEOPLE CHOOSE to be DETROIT LIONS FANS …

FAMILIARITY BREEDS DISDAIN … MISERY LOVES COMPANY …

NOW [BACK] to SPORTS [AGAIN] … STU …

ANOTHER “TALE of TWO CITIES” …

I LIVE in LOS ANGELES … WHO HAS the N.F.L. “RAMS” BACK …

THE “NEW” L.A. RAMS WERE STUCK WITH “OLD” COACH JEFF FISHER … COACH of LONG-TERM NUMERICAL MEDIOCRITY … “STABLE and SURE” …

IN a MOMENT of “INSPIRATION” THEY HIRE NEW, YOUNG “INNOVATIVE” COACH SEAN McVAY …

HENCE CAME EXCITING, INNOVATIVE SPORT … a SUPER BOWL …

BUT WHAT IF THIS RADICAL “CLIMATE CHANGE” WAS NOW DEEMED “UN-ACCEPTABLE” …

WE NEED to GO BACK to “The GOOD OLD DAYS” …

WHAT IF the RAMS FIRED McVAY and RE-HIRED FISHER … OR SOMEONE SIMILAR …

SIMILAR, WHAT IF WE WENT FROM INNOVATIVE, HIGH-PERFORMANCE ECONOMICS AFTER DECADES of ECONOMIC STAGNATION …

TRUMP (high octane economics) to BIDEN (Stone Age socialism)…

BACK to “OLD SCHOOL” SOCIALIST …. KEYNES-ian ECONOMICS …

REPLACED by HIGH-SCHOOL TRIPLE-OPTION WISH-BONE OFFENSE

500 YARDS of TOTAL OFFENSE

FAST … INNOVATIVE … EXCITING … ENTERTAINING …

REPLACED by TWO-YARDS and a CLOUD of DUST …

NOT MUCH of that FANCY, NEW-FANGLED USE of the FORWARD PASS

WHICH LEADS to THREE THINGS and TWO are BAD … (incompletions or interceptions)

HEY … IF IT WORKED in “REMEMBER the TITANS”

The INTENTION is to PUT “RUDY’ in the GAME … the BEGINNING of the GAME

LET’s GO FROM “BRIAN’s STORY” from GALE SAYERS (hall of fame) … BRIAN PICCOLO … down to RUDY …

IN a RELATED STORY … the Los Angeles RAMS FIRED HEAD COACH SEAN McVAY … to RE-HIRE JEFF FISHER as HEAD COACH …
