Thread: Economic theory

  1. #1

    Default Economic theory

    I only know about his plan to make the wage slave tax a flat 14% across the board. What are his views on economics? I was hoping being the son of RP, would influence him. So, far there hasn't been a word about Austrian theory, sound money, or end the fed.

    Flat 14.5% for everything above the first 50K, if I read it right. That's an important detail. There are such things as people who make 10K a year and vote.

    And he's having end the Fed rallies and such. The MSM is carefully looking the other way every time that happens, of course.

    In response to your 'this should be his whole platform' comment, it would work for you and it would work for me. Now, how do we get ourselves appointed the Committee to Select the Next President? He might have to find a way to win over some one or two people with no clue about Austrian Economics as well.

    Yeah, he never talks about Austrian economics and monetary policy. NOT A PEEP. NEVER. What planet do you live on to start a thread complaining about this?

    Editorials just from the last month that I have read. (might be others.)

    I am not even sure if I even agree with Austrian Business Cycle stuff, but this clip of Rand explaining that perspective of monetary policy is as good as I have seen. He also explains why government fiscal stimulus doesn't work. You are asking if Ron Paul is an influence, my answer is I certainly have never heard Ron Paul describe these topics as coherently. So Rand must have picked something up.

    Rand's senior economic adviser, Mark Spitznagel, is a successful investor and a follower of the Austrian school. His hedge fund's success is based solely off his own investing strategy, which is to basically bet against the Fed in order to forgo short term gain for large returns in the long run. He calls it roundabout investing, named after the the Austrian theory of roundabout production.

    His hedge fund actually made over 1 Billion dollars on Monday alone after the stock market crashed.

    Not every person follows all the mainstream/alt. news or watches TV. Without a google search his views wouldn't be well known. The time to address the major views would be at large audience events not a random news piece.
