Putin’s game plan has been clear, using Russia’s renewed oil revenues and supplies to support and control those countries that undermine stability for the rest of the world to create a space for Russia to wedge itself back in as the most powerful and threatening force among nations.

Hello Homies! I say Homies because we all share the same home, Mother Earth. Wise people everywhere understand that this planet is our home. It’s where we live and if we don’t care for Mother Earth, then where else do we have to go? It’s not like we can sell […]

anti-woman sufferage

From the party that brought you, “Shutdown at the Oh No Corral” comes a new, charm offensive…though they don’t understand the phrase too well (“So we need to be offensive in a charming way?”)

Banksy's "The Banality of the Banality of Evil"

Yesterday was the yearly celebration of love. Love between couples, and yet there is love in many forms. It’s great that we set aside a special day honoring love, every year, but love should be honored every day of our lives and we as people should make that a point in our lives. We need to love the world itself, for in love, there is salvation. Only universal love will save our world.

Job Fair

And he lied like a carpet in his little crooked house.

MMT gets simpler

It occurred to me after I published MMT Part 1 that perhaps it wasn’t the best introduction to MMT. I condensed a lot of information into a relatively short post. Shortly before publishing the post I ran across a video illustrating how modern money works and attached it to the end of the post.

Christie Pres

If Chris Christie did become President, after declaring that his first act in office would be ordering the National Guard to install defrosters in Hell (and insisting that Hell freezing over wasn’t caused by human activity), who would he nominate to be in his cabinet?

Last chance....

If you don’t know me, I’m a bit of a student of economics, though “Student” may be stretching it. What I am intensely interested in is the overarching “whole” of how things work together to form the civilization that surrounds us.
