re: Buying Ethereum/CryptoTalk - GregYoureMyBoyBlue
[quote] I can't believe people are telling you to buy into this market right now. Everyone should wait a bit longer as this market is still overinflated and uncertainty with BTC still looms.

re: Employee Goals/Quotas not being met-Terminate? - GregYoureMyBoyBlue

[quote] You're going to have to elaborate on this. How would increased demand for a product cause more people to want to work for free? Are you suggesting that the most profitable corporations have the highest rates of free internships?[/quote] Well no, I'm more criticizing the conclusion of the...

About 50% through right now. I have a couple thoughts on the first 25% of the reading below 1) Sowell on socialism: [quote]"While socialism may be conceived of in political terms as a system that aims at greater equality, a planned economy, job security, and other humane goals, in economic terms...

re: EBC Book #1 - Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt - GregYoureMyBoyBlue
[quote]he whole argument for the government entering the lending business, in fact, is that it will make loans to people who could not get them from private lenders. This is only another way of saying that the government lenders will take risks with other people’s money (the taxpayers’) that private...

Not nearly as comprehensive of a summary as RSBR, but I thought I’d provide a quick summary with a couple of links so people can read up on him. Everything is on wiki, but below is the quick tl;dr version of his background and evolution to a free market economist. Apologies on the tardiness...pull...

[quote]Towards the end of the season Gurley's stock was sky rocketing and there were a few regional analysts who said they believed he was the best back in the nation, they just didn't have the pull to change his ranking like the national guys do. To his credit, JC Shurburtt was one. He was in a...

[quote] But if those with the lowest profit margins are driven out of business, supply would go down relative to demand and prices at the surviving firms would necessarily go up in response.
