Counter-Cycle Theory of Exchange


The brilliance of the current political structure is found in its constructive conning of lower-income individuals into paying for the salaries and benefits of persons who claim to possess the acumen and authoritative leverage to administer such positive change as to avail them overnight of their lot in life, all while perniciously extinguishing those opportunities by systematically monopolizing the funds which might otherwise be available to incentivize their creation. This is all part of the soft despotism which has palatably replaced the more blatant and physical form of slavery which is indelibly etched into the minds and texts of nearly every student of history. Let it be known that this form of slavery, more conspicuous and systematic, will surely become the next subject of great scrutiny in the annals of future texts covering this history.

The counter-cycle theory of exchange proposes that the systemic means by which purchasing power, here defined as the relative average value at which goods and services are exchanged with money, is either overtly transferred through taxation, forfeitures, or subsidization, or covertly dispersed through inflation or its counterparts of quantitative easing and artificially-low rates of interest, consequently causes antithetical resistance to and disproportionate, transformative advantages within already-imbedded market expectations and schemes of incentivization. 

In the case of government interference in the market, whereby measurably-ambiguous, dubious depths of social “good” are channeled by heartwarming campaigns in the zero-to-negative-sum social forum, private investment is then crowded out to pave the way for phases of consumption-focused public policy, the totality of which obstructs the progressive cycle of profits chasing and incentivizing market advantages, which have historically materialized through auditable, market-sensitive modes of production to satisfy effective demand which spawns from the credit, ultimately from savings, generated by consistently-productive counterparts within the cycle: the consistency of this production generates a standard for purchasing power from which basis all transactions may be predictably priced, and through which dimension of expectations transactions may be predictably encouraged. Government work, subsidies, and cash transfers disrupt this inter-cyclical advancement of personally-defined wants, effectively unilaterally redefining the objectives not only of the marketplace but of human existence. 

The eventual tide of incentives will overwhelmingly justify the distribution of both physical and human capital to unsustainable, regressive ends, matching the former with an ever-unproductive, relatively unmotivated — toward the pursuit of value-added commerce, that is — latter. These phenomena are reproduced and reinforced over time to further institutionalize these regressive expectations of counterparty responsibility. 

The systemic redistribution of purchasing power to unimaginative ends of consumption, or to inherently (based upon the calculated, replicated reluctance of individual persons to pay for or to be incentivized by these abstracts, i.e. by homeless people they do not know) unwanted ends in and of themselves, will across time deplete the market of real savings, leading to the incidental decline in the real value of money, effectively completing the counter-cycle phenomenon of exchange. This counter-cyclical intervention, which resists the inherent propensity of market appreciation, requires time to purge misallocations of invested efforts, skills, and resources, and the foregone cycle of advancement leaves only to the imagination an unknown quality of progress, a unique quantity of time in space the world will never again possess, and the palpable consequences of negative payout attending the pursuit of the unscientific, unpredictable ends of an abstract political agenda.

America's Civil War: Not "Civil" and Not About Slavery

Virtually the entirety of South and Central America, as well as European powers Britain, Spain and France, peacefully abolished slavery — without war — in the first sixty years of the nineteenth century. 

Why, then, did the United States enter into a bloody war that cost over half of the nation’s wealth, at least 800,000 lives and many hundreds of thousands more in casualties? 

The answer: the War Between the States was not about slavery. 

It was a war of invasion to further empower the central government and to reject state sovereignty, nullification of unconstitutional laws, and the states’ rights to secession. 

It was a war that would cripple the South and witness the federal debt skyrocket from $65 million in 1860 to $2.7 billion in 1865, whose annual interest alone would prove twice as expensive as the entire federal budget from 1860.

It was a war that would blur the lines and jurisdictions between sovereign states, that would indiscriminately sacrifice the founding principles etched …

Homelessness More Lucrative than $150,000/Year Job in SF Bay Area

Most people in the United States long for a $150,000-per-year salary. This makes sense, as the nation's median personal income is roughly 80 percent below that mark. 

It's a lot of money. 

In fact, this income level qualifies for the top 4 percent of Americans and the top 0.1 percent of the world's population; it is 109 times the global average.

If this is true, how could an unemployed homeless person possibly make more money? Well, the federal, state and local governments: that's how!

Let's take a look at the numbers.

A single Bay-Area Californian earning $150,000 per year pays an effective income tax rate of 32.23 percent: this figure is inclusive of a 7.20-percent effective state income tax (and 9.30-percent marginal rate), an 18.27-percent effective federal income tax (and 24.00-percent marginal rate), and a 6.76-percent effective rate for Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes.

Bitcoin: An Ornately Compelling Transfer of Wealth

In a 2017 interview with Fox Business, venture capitalist Peter Thiel identified bitcoin (XBT) as the "cyber equivalent to gold." 

While talk of this comparison has endured for just about as long as the cryptocurrency itself, Thiel's statement showcases more acutely just how highly imaginative and seductive the mental gymnastics have become: not only have successful entrepreneurs bought into its functionality, they have also endorsed a comparison between one asset that is usable in and of itself, absent trade, and another whose usability stems exclusively from its tradability.

Gold and silver are valuable not strictly because they require strenuous work to be extracted from the earth, but because of the valuable properties they present. 

It's their unique set of properties that first makes gold and silver worth the effort, both of which operate from a "proof of utility" instead of some measly "proof of work." 

The assignment of value operates not from…
