What is Fiat Money?
December 02, 2011
A Short Primer The term "fiat money" - more correctly "fiat currency" - is becoming more wide-spread than it was seven years ago when we put out a movie called FIAT EMPIRE. I certainly didn't invent the term, so I am just going along with the economic jargon a ...
NDAA, Smell of Fear
December 01, 2011

Terminology of the Day: Competitive 'Megapolitan'
November 30, 2011

Look for the Best in People and You'll Find It
November 24, 2011
Look for the best in people and you'll find it; look for the worst and you'll find that, too. How we view others can generate a self-fulfilling prophecy: you believe that they will behave in a certain way, or that you'll be affected by them in a certain wa ...
Winning? Ron Paul Helps Lead Mounting Opposition to SOPA Internet Censorship
November 24, 2011

Inequality
November 23, 2011

IMF Expands Lending Again Due to Phony Crisis
November 22, 2011

Economy Bounces Back?
November 18, 2011

From Russia with Trepidations
November 17, 2011
