@bubblebustin Since you read Truth Digg, do you also listen to Left Right and Center on KUOW every week? Robert Sheer (Truthdiggs publisher) has been the “left” side of the equation on this program for years and years. Have you tried interesting him in the FATCA or citizenship taxation issue? I have sent emails, but no luck so far. Need to tie it to the financial crisis, and that would get his attention as he rails at the complicity of the banks in the melt down and complains about the bail out more than Ron Paul. For being “Left” he sure lines up in support of Ron a lot.
He was a good counter point to Tony Blankley on the right who sadly died suddenly January 7th. He and Robert engaged in good civil opposing discourse with out rancor. Just like Isaac Brock. If you haven’t listened, or don’t know of the program, it is on Friday nights. Here is the link… It is only 30 minutes.
@justme, apparently I need to advance beyond hand trowel! Thanks for the info and link, I’ll be sure to check them out. As far as contacting Robert Sheer goes, would drawing a relationship somehow to how the pursuit of minnows, aka toxic liabilities, will play a part in wreaking havoc on the world’s financial systems be helpful? It seems to me that the US’s financial crisis has resulted in a series of gross international overreaches, consistent with FATCA.
Speaking of Ron Paul, I’ve been reading more about Austrian economics, and the post http://www.mountainvision.com/newsletter.php?view=a8baa56554 is a bulletin from BFI Capital, a firm that supports its principles. Sometimes a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing, so if there’s someone out there who can shed more light on the subject, I’d appreciate it. Like which economic principles currently guide the US?
@bubblebustin Current economic principles guiding the US are Keynesian. Just the opposite of Austrian.
If you want a good primer of the conflict between the two schools of economic thought for the past 100 years, here is a informative Podcast about the personalities behind the theories.
and a fun little rap video…
@just me. I recommend you have a look at Lisa’s post on
Emphasis on Sweden’s carrot approach in encouraging its citizens to comply.
@justme, great introductory course on Keynes v Hayek. I posted the video on Ron Paul’s Fb. Apparently our PM Steven Harper grew up on on Hayekian ideals.
Thanks for the reference to the Swedish tax collection system. I am way behind in my reading!
