The Clarey National Debt Plan

In part because the economy was collapsing, in part because I found it easier to analyze economies instead of companies, I made a foray into currency trading about 10 years ago.  Analyzing companies was becoming boring, not to mention more of a game predicting which government policy would affect which industry as opposed to looking at fundamentals like earnings, debt, and cash flow.  And so, using techniques nearly identical to those I used in commercial lending, I bought some Swiss Francs, Australian Dollars, and Singaporean Dollars.

I did well.

Very well.

And because of the leveraged nature of currency trading was starting to wonder if this wasn't a quick way toward riches and my true calling.  That was until....

the Swiss central bank decided it's currency was too strong and purposely started to pummel it's own currency.  Once again, I would have to predict government policy and not economics or fundamentals as the currency market was no longer efficient, but merely a reflection of government and bureaucrats.

But then it got me thinking.

"Wait, if countries purposely weaken their currencies because there's a benefit (in this case, their export industry doesn't lose business or jobs because their goods are in higher demand overseas), then there must also be SOME kind of benefit to having a strong currency as well.  In other words, in a "equal but opposite force"-type-law of economics (that I truly believe exists) what would be the benefit of a country with a strong currency?"

And then I made the connection.

Purchasing power.

I witnessed this the more I traveled overseas and realized in Mexico, Jamaica, the Bahamas, even Canada, countries would gladly accept greenbacks, saving me and other American visitors the pain of converting currencies.  I also remember a John Stossel episode where he could more quickly hail a cab in Russia flashing US dollars (and cigarettes) than the local Rubles.

But then it really dawned on me.

If a country were to have a very strong currency, if it were to adhere to free market economics, then it wouldn't weaken its currency to protect it's export base.  It would let its citizens buy world goods AND INVESTIBLE ASSETS on the cheap.

This made me wonder "couldn't the US immediately after WWII just printed off a couple billion dollars and buy all the world's productive assets in 1945?"

Which makes me wonder, "Couldn't we do the same today?"

And this is the underpinning epiphany of The Clarey National Debt Plan.

While other people's national debt reduction plans are based on some combination of cuts, fiscal discipline, frugality, and taxation, my idea is much more international and opportunistic.  For while the US may not be in its supreme position it once was back in (the evil, racist, oppressive) 40's and 50's, the truth is neither is the rest of the world.  And poor as our finances are, the world's is even worse.  Alas, we still have the world's reserve currency and we can (and do) abuse the hell out of it.

For example the money supply (using the monetary base as the measure) has increased 350% under Obama.  That should result in inflation of 350%, but it hasn't.  The money has been sopped up in recapitalizing banks, bailing out bad mortgages, and bailing out other bad investments, wherein the money sits on a balance sheet or in a vault, never allowed to circulate (and thus cause inflation) in the economy.  The money has also been used to finance bubbles such as new mortgages, student loans, and corporate buy backs of their own stock where inflation has occurred, but we don't care about it because we like it when "stocks go up," "housing prices go up," and millennials believe "you can't put a price on education."  The third area this money has gone is overseas where countries such as China, Russia, Brazil, and all of Europe are in such WORSE financial shape, our dollar and it's horrible fundamentals are still relatively attractive and act as a "safe haven" investment.

In other words we're like the only girl in Casper, Wyoming with all of her teeth.  Hideous, disease infected, and the mother of 4 from 3 different baby daddies, but we're still the best looking horse in the barn.

I say "why not capitalize on this?"

Since printing money does not (directly or immediately anyway) result in inflation, why don't we avail ourselves of this undeserved purchasing power, print off $22 trillion, and go on an acquisitions binge across the globe?  I say "acquisitions binge" and not "pay off the national debt" because, while printing off $22 trillion to merely pay off our debt is possible, I do believe the global markets and rest of the world aren't THAT dense and they would immediately dump the dollar immediately causing real inflation at home.  But if we instead INVEST that $22 trillion in assets that generate an annual profit not only does that give those $22 trillion in US dollars intrinsic value (and thus hopefully stave off inflation), but the annual profits from these investments could be used to pay down the debt.  And that's the twist to the "Clarey National Debt Plan."

I've ran some figures.

There's $44 trillion in publicly traded global equities of the G20 nations.  These securities on average pay a dividend yield of 3.156%.  You may ask "why would you only print off $22 trillion, why not a full $44 trillion and buy these global equities outright" and the reason why is you don't want the US government becoming majority shareholder of anything.  They'd ruin the underlying investment forcing unnecessary corporate social responsibility initiatives, under-performing minorities in positions of power, mandating carbon footprint quotas, and a whole slew of politically motivated leftist slop that would destroy the profit potential of these firms.  You want the US government to be a silent, non-participatory, non-intervening partner, and ensuring they only own 49.9% (thus the $22 trillion) of these firms is a way to do that.

A 3.156% annual dividend yield on $22 trillion generates $694 billion in proceeds each year.

Assume there's a balanced budget (which is the LEAST likely assumption in all of this theoretical plan, and sadly, I'm not joking), and the national debt is paid off in a maximum of 28 years, probably less assuming growth in earnings (there's technically a way we could eliminate the national debt in a year or two, but I'm not paid enough to consult on these matters).

Now admittedly there's plenty wrong with this idea.

One, printing off $22 trillion (I would hope) would cause the currency markets to crash (indicating there's at least some sanity left in this world).  But here's where the juicy irony lies.  We just almost quadrupled the money supply under Obama/Yellen/Bernanke.

I ask you one simple question:

Where did all that money go?

If you look at the federal reserve balance sheet and the federal budget this newly minted money went to the following places:

1.  Bailing out unprofitable banks
2.  Bailing out other unprofitable financial firms
3.  Bailing out unprofitable people who borrowed more than they could afford
4.  Bailing out people either via welfare, EBT, social security, etc., ie - parasitic people who do NOT produce a net positive economic production
5.  Wars/military (where in once again, the purpose of the military is to destroy things, not make a profit)
6.  Forcing the tax payer to bail out millennials from their worthless, idiotic degrees (oops, wait, that hasn't happened...yet)

In other words, NOT ONE PENNY was an actual investment as you expect to get a positive return on investments.  These were expenditures on money losing operations, money losing people, money losing wars, and the just plain losers, degenerates, and scum of our society.  There was no hope of profits, earnings, dividends, cash flow, or capital gains.  It was simply a pissing away of money.

When you realize this you'll see my plan is INFINITELY more sound, logical, and sane because there's an actual profit at the end of this $22 trillion investment.  And that's the key word - it's an investment.  If markets are as sane as they are now, and consistent, the dollar should (ironically) SURGE compared to other country's currencies because unlike Greece, Japan, Europe, Brazil, and nearly every other country we wouldn't be bailing out our country's losers, but investing in global winners.

This then leads to the second problem - inflated stock prices.

If it were to get out the US government was on a $22 trillion global spending spree stock prices would jump to the point the purchasing price would no longer make this plan viable.  Additionally, as it just so happens, central banks are already doing this just the same.  But while smaller central banks such as the Swiss, Singaporean, etc., might go and take such actions, they're too small to drive prices up significantly on the global markets.  The US is too big.  Ergo, kind of like China, they'd have to do it clandestinely and secretly through unremarkably named subsidiaries and shell companies.  This would take some time to slowly, indirectly, and discreetly amass a $22 trillion global equity portfolio, but in time it could be done, especially if there are dips or crashes in the market.

There are other problems with "The Clarey National Debt Plan," but truthfully it would be a waste of time further exploring what is already an academic, theoretical exercise.  The balls that would be required to execute this plan just do not exist in the US.  While Japan and Australia have the spine to end their worthless degree bubbles, our president apologizes when he states the truth about art history degrees.  And the student loan bubble is merely 1/20th the size of our national debt problems.  However, we can learn something from this intellectual exercise aside from just what a bunch of self-deluding clowns and asshats the central banking/governmental/international finance "authorities" are.  And that lesson is the only source by which national debts can be paid off if through the economic production of the people.

In other words, government is not a solution to anything as it is the underlying people who are the ones with not only the power, but the economic production potential necessary to make good on whatever promises their governments made.  It is cute that today's international economy is so screwed up that the US could just waltz in, print off $22 trillion, and purchase the productivity of the world's productive classes, which would bail out our parasitic and lazy classes, but it doesn't change the fact that when it all boils down to fundamentals, economic production of the private sector is where ALL economic worth, value, and wealth comes from.  And if you really want to build a successful society, civilization, or country, I suggest you found it around this key and vital principle.

In the meantime you central bankers, government bureaucrats, and international bond traders enjoy the decline!

Did Obama Help Blacks?

Friends of mine asked me if I was going to watch the debate tonight.  I said, no, I was going to dedicate my time towards something more important instead.  Specifically, I was going to provide the answer to the question millions of Americans have been waiting for these past 8 years:

Did Obama help blacks?

So if you care to advance your mind and help make meaningful progress to help improve the economic lot of blacks (as opposed to having your brain cells destroyed by watching Cheech and Chong duke it out), turn off the TV, pour yourself a drink, and let us look at some empirical data.

To be blunt, Barack Obama, "magic negro" as he might be, no longer has the time left in his presidency to do anything meaningful or helpful for the nation.  As Americans are glued to the shitshow that is going on between arguably the most corrupt person in America and a man who has diarrhea of the mouth, it is a short 3 months before one of those two is sworn into office, replacing America's first (sort of) black president.  Ergo, I think I can safely assume it's OK to start measuring the improvement blacks have enjoyed under the Obama presidency, without too much of a margin of error between now and January 20th.

So how did America's first Kaepernick-esque president do in improving the lives of blacks?


Matter of fact, you wouldn't have thought a "sorta black" guy was even president.

The first and most important measure of economic well-being - median income - not only showed a worsening gap between blacks and whites, BUT OVER ALL NOMINAL DECLINES IN INCOMES FOR BLACKS!  In other words, blacks not only lost ground against whites in income, but their incomes fell by 2%!!!

The second, and arguably second-most important measure of economic well-being - net household wealth - also showed deterioration against a white-measuring stick.  At the beginning of the recession (before Obama took over) white wealth was 10 times that of your average black person, while 2013 (the latest data available) showed it worsening to 13x's that of blacks.

Third, life expectancy.

Here some genuine progress has been made.  In 8 years (though the latest data is only up till 2014) Obama has managed to close the life expectancy gap by almost 1%.  Sadly, this is likely more due to whites drinking more and having more complications of gluttonous behavior, but I guess you gotta take a win when you can get one.

Fourth, crime.  Sadly, like life expectancy, no real improvement either (arguments against incarcerations rates vs. arrest rates duly noted, the data is the best data I could find available AND of a consistent measuring nature).

Fifth, unemployment.  Not only a very important measure of economic well-being, but again, absolutely no progress in closing the gap between whites.

Now we could go on, and I'm sure as more recent data emerges there will be no surprises, but the FACT is that the plight of blacks HAS NOT improved under Barack Obama.  No measurable or significant improvement has been made and the past 8 years HAS BEEN COMPLETELY WASTED in terms of helping blacks (and hispanics too if you care to look at the data) close the wealth, income, employment, crime, and life expectancy gaps.

And this utter failure (not to mention the doubling of our national debt) grants the likes of me, and everybody else who has been saying socialism is not what is going to "save the blacks," the right to start asking some serious questions of everybody who supported this failure of a president.

1.  If you'll permit me to plagiarize Donald Trump, "What DO you have to lose?"  Be it the more-than-adequate track record of large liberal cities headed up by leftist, liberal mayors (black or not), the academic performance of your children, your job prospects, or the plethora of economic data presented above, when does the black community wake the fuck up and realize the democrats and the socialism they're offering are NOT the solution?  This isn't to say Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, or even Jessie Jackson don't care to improve the plight of blacks, but that they are WRONG when it comes to the medicine they're prescribing.  And before you start blaming it on other people with "but it's the evil republicans" or "white institutional" or "but but but," I think it's about time the black community start realizing it's not whitey paying the price, but themselves for this constant lying to themselves.

2.  Do you know what 11% is?

That's the percent of your life you just wasted, spending 8 years on false hope Obama promised you.  This not only goes for the black community (who have shorter life expectancies btw), but the white, hispanic, and all other people who think that socialism, free health care, and, frankly, using the government to bail out people from their mistakes (be it an illegitimate child or bankster scum) is going to help improve the lives of minorities.  This unfounded and religiously-stupid belief that government is the solution to people's self-inflicted problems just got debunked (again).  But like all experiments with socialism, it didn't come free.  It cost another three generations of blacks their youth, their time, and their mortality.  But hey, at least some rich, upper middle class academians with their sociology degrees got to feel good and some politicians got re-elected to cushy government positions.  And that's worth all the murdered blacks in Chiraq this year.

3.  Do any of you white leftists feel any guilt for misleading the black community down the wrong path for another 8 years?  Is it because you lack the spine to tell them the harsh truths about escaping poverty and achieving economics success?  Or is it because it's just so much easier to tell them pretty lies so they like you, vote for you, and don't call you racist?  Or do you make too much money on them heading up some bullshit academic department like "African American Studies" or "Diversity Director" or any one of the thousands of non-profit jobs that fail to ACTUALLY IMPROVE the lives of black people?  I know you make money off of selling them into poverty, but hey, better they live in poverty than you work a real job, right?

4.  Will you leftists now stop accusing people who disagree with Obama's/socialist policies of racism when it's empirically clear these policies do NOT improve the lives of minorities?

and finally

5.  Will the black community have the self respect to set aside its emotion, pride, ego, and tribalism, and instead in an effort to improve itself make an honest and long-term commitment towards empiricism, logic, the scientific method, facts, reason, discipline, reality, and hard work?  I understand the sheer scope and consistency of lies told these past 50 years is compelling, completely self-validating, even angering.  But with nothing to show for it, with no measurable improvement, how many MORE generations of blacks must live in a dead-last place position relative to whites for these failing social experiments to go on?

ANY self-respecting black person who wishes to improve their (and their childrens') lot in life owes themselves at minimum an alternative strategy, or at least the right to explore other explanations as to their poverty.  And I suggest you don't look at the tired and failed policies of socialism for the answer, but an alternative explanation in freedom, liberty, self-ownership, and responsibility.

Book Review of Mitch Berg's "Trulbert"

"Trulbert," which is intended to be pronounced phonetically "true liberty," is a book by Mitch Berg of Shot in the Dark Fame.  It chronicles the would-be happenings of a post-economic collapse in winter-bound Minneapolis, following various characters, tribes, families, media personalities, and agency-less government bureaucrats.  While the topic may be somewhat somber and macabre, the book can be summed up in one word:


What threw me off at first was the seemingly unreconcilable comical nature of the book, its characters, and its tone with what would in reality be a harsh, rapid, and deathly decline in the Twin Cities population.  Specifically, the La-La-Land that Mr. Berg paints after the currency collapses is one where cell phone towers and satellites still work, electricity still runs, an effective replacement monetary system is up in a week, and the north side of Minneapolis doesn't revolt immediately when the EBT checks don't clear.  However, while my part-economist, part-prepper mind was expecting a much more realistic tale full of rampant disease, an 80% death rate, and cannibalism, Mr. Berg purposely avoids this to tell an economic tale.

Well...he at least slows down the economic collapse a bit.

Well...OK, a LOT.

For in the real world Minneapolis' economic collapse would happen so quickly the vital economic lessons in this book would not have the time to be elucidated.  And so Mr. Berg purposely slows this collapse down to show not only what could be achieved in absence of government, but also what would happen in the vacuum of its absence.  And here his observations are not only insightful and true, but hilarious because only things that are this tragically accurate, damning, and destructive to humanity are truly funny.

For example, precisely what value do government bureaucrats such as teachers, counselors, non-profit workers, protestors, and social workers provide society?  It's a hard question to answer in today's world because we see them and presume their title explains their value.  "Teacher," "social worker," "librarian."  But through the lens of a post-collapse world we see that these people are absolutely worthless to society, if not easily replaceable with books, a thumb drive, or nothing at all.  It becomes PAINFULLY clear society merely pays additional taxes to keep these worthless people pointlessly employed.

Another brilliant skewering Mr. Berg does of a real world worthless caste of people are the academians and media personalities.  As the city collapses around them (and the mob slowly takes over), these charlatans maintain their air of fabricated and self-assigned authority as to why the economy and society is collapsing around them (and the two paragraphs where a mobster explains to a former journalist why she was nothing but a whore for political powers pre-collapse, as she vainly points to her worthless awards and degrees, is by far the best piece of excoriation that aptly describes today's media and alone makes the book worth buying).  Like most government workers, it becomes painfully clear just how worthless these people are both in the book and the real world.

Particularly funny is the fun he pokes at libertarian ideologues and pacifist zealots whose belief in the "non-aggression principle" gets them robbed, if not killed, especially as they're lecturing wild mobs about the irrationality of their actions.  They start off sanctimonious and proud as U of MN professors, only to end up...well...few in number by the end of the book.

And the sportsball and sheeple!  Don't even get me started!  It's as if Mr. Berg was reading my mind about how the majority of Americans truly are dumb enough to be taken in by bread and circuses.  His brilliant weaving of the NFL as a national and dominant force in the country would be laughable if the American public's IQ wasn't so low that a mafioso NFL is a real world, post-collapse possibility.

But what I think is Mr. Berg's pinnacle achievement in this book is the inevitable creation of a mob.  Not so much that a mob or gangster form of government would form, that's a given.  But how it would form is his true brilliance.

It would form with the legions of disaffected, unemployed, and talentless former government employees.

Without giving too much of the book away, figure heads start to form mobs who demand protection payments from the actual producers in the government-free society.  It's only natural government employees, bureaucrats, academians, and non-profit workers would be starving as they offer nothing of value.  Ergo, with their careers destroyed and the private sector moving on without them, they would feel entitled (and would be quite hungry) towards taking what wasn't theirs.  The rationales given by the mob bosses are the same as today's modern governments, and Mr. Berg draws identical parallels with slogans and department names that are indecipherable from today's democrat and socialist agencies and non-profits.  Add to this natural evolution of government employee-turned-mobster thug, that the seed by which gangs form is based about religions and churches (read- tribalism), and I wonder if Mr. Berg realizes how accurate he might be in predicting a collapse in Minneapolis.

There is certainly more to like in this book.  The constant digging at stereotypes such as roller derby girls, hyphenated named women, and coffee snobs will make you think I wrote the book.  The actions scenes, some spectacularly creative and graphic, will leave you wincing.  Slamming on the Green Bay Packers is always fun.  And the debauchery of the socialist power heads reminds you of Hugo Chavez's daughter. 

About the only things missing are four:

1.  I would have liked to see more on prostitution, not only because it would be a very real reality in a post apocalyptic world, but it would have provided the perfect vehicle by which to show how feminism is hopelessly dependent upon good men to protect them, so they can have such a delusional religion.

2.  Slavery would at least be starting to form in some capacity or another given the progress of the mob.

3.  It's not available in paperback or audio book.

4.  There was no mention of "The Clarey Sniper Brigade" that would come in from White Bear Lake and charitably free the Minneapolitans from the clutches of tyranny for a weekly tribute of the city's population of big breasted, poor self-control, redheaded daughters.

But these minor shortcomings I am willing to overlook.

Regardless, if you can get past the somewhat unrealistically slow nature of the economic collapse, Trulbert is definitely a great read.  You will learn more about economics than three full semesters at the U of MN, your mind will be opened towards what to expect in a collapsing society, and you will get many-a-hearty guffaws at the expense of nearly every variant of leftist as they are shown to be the worthless, tyrannical scum they are in the world today.

The Case for Mike Rowe for President

It is no secret that I hold Mike Rowe in very high regard.  The man is an entrepreneur, an Eagle Scout, worked and still works a real job, and for what amount he's delved into politics, it has been (truthfully) addressing one of the largest problems facing the US - the education bubble.  So when you compare him to the two "best" schlepps the democrats and republicans managed to scrape from the baby boomer barrel this time around for a presidential election, there's just no competition.  Mike Rowe would make an infinitely better president than Clinton or Trump.

But before we get our hopes up of a charming, honest Mike Rowe announcing his presidential bid, there's just one minor problem.  And the problem is not Mike Rowe himself, but Americans.  Americans, frankly, don't deserve Mike Rowe.

As it stands right now, Trump and Clinton are so hated, even within their own parties, I contend any normal, honest person could walk right in and win the election.  With financial support form the Peter Thiels of the world, not to mention a GoFundMe account I'm sure would raise millions overnight, Mike Rowe could just walk in in the 11th hour with a clever marketing strategy and steal the election with a write in campaign.  But, ironically, that's the easy part.  It would be getting Mike Rowe to decide to run that's the hard part.

Think about what Mike Rowe or any normal person would have to give up.  Since he is normal that means he likely has a healthy family, normal life, and a job he enjoys.  He has his hobbies, interests, and friends.  His entire value and happiness is contingent on that life and all of that would go away over night if he decided to run for president.

Instead of working on another documentary like "How Booze Built America" he'd have to deal with the asswipes in congress trying to force some unwanted toxic piece of omnibus legislation into a term limits bill.

Instead of spending time with his dad, he'd have to deal with accusations of racism, sexism, bigotry, ageism, and whatever other "isms" Americans can create as he cuts social spending and tries to balance the budget.

The media would find, if not outright create, skeletons in his closet, ruining his life at home.

Not to mention his prominence would bring out 20 year old (likely false) accusations of rape or sexual assault a la Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, etc., running the risk of legal troubles.

And all for a paycheck that is likely not too much more than what he can muster working in film. 

The truth is only people who have nothing else in their lives can endure this baptism by fire because "getting elected into office" is the only thing in life they have.  Clinton (both Bill and Hillary) epitomize this with a broken family, a miserable home life, murder and rape accusations, and a machiavellian relationship that is designed for political advancement and not love.  I don't care how many millions they make in speeches, they'll never come close to what Mike Rowe and normal people have.  And that's just not worth risking on a presidential bid.

Ultimately it is the American public and a "fanning-the-flames" media who are to blame for the outright pathetic presidential candidates we have today.  In becoming an entitled and spoiled population, the American public get vehement if any politician dares to hold them up to adult standards of self-supportation and independence.  In separating the country by race and gender, any attempt to treat people as genuine equals and hold them up to equal standards begets accusations of racism, sexism, and any other form of "ism" professional victim whores can come up with.  And the media, with its abandonment of genuine journalism and its duty as the 4th branch of government, would prefer to get clicks and make money by shelling out yellow, if not outright, brown journalism, even if it ruins would-be honest politicians' personal lives (not to mention, the future of the country).

Joseph Maistre said it best when he said, "You get the government you deserve."

And Americans don't deserve Mike Rowe.

Let Women Have Corporate America

they deserve it.
