  • The other day I was reading The Perfect Storm by Johan Norberg and I suddenly realized how very alike a market is to an ecosystem. I’m a biologist by training but have only been reading Austrian economics for two years or so. The more I read the more I feel I should put together a course called “Economics for natural scientists”. The left has been completely in charge of academia here in Sweden for a long time, decades. However, it has proved rather more difficult to infiltrate the natural sciences than the social ditos. But they are doing it through appeals to emotion when it comes to environmental issues. By presenting political intervention as a given, the only question is how much. By exposing this and explaining the economic realities of examples like Tragedy of the commons I could at least help to counteract this, as we call it in Swedish, “rödröta”. Red rot. Now, I thought I’d come on here for some help to gather my thoughts and get your valuable input on points and examples to bring up, that are both pertinent to economics and environment. I’d like to be able to explain very simply and also stay constructive. – What are some good examples of basic economic principles? – What are some good enviro-examples where these principles are relevant? – What are some liberty/economic solutions to common environmental problems? – What should I read? I hope I was able to get across what I’m trying to do, I often get carried away by my thoughts. 1. Teach some basic economics to natural scientists in their language. Show analogies between ecosystems and markets to make the latter as intuitive as the former. 2. Illustrate through theory and real-world examples the difference between statism- and liberty- oriented approaches to solutions of environmental problems. + Success-stories. By this thread I hope to sketch out an outline of such a lecture series or course. Thank you SO much for helping out. My thoughts and ideas are just all over the place!

  • So… yesterday I had to interact with one of our town’s finest. My company experienced a theft, one of our trailers was stolen off of our lot. It is my responsibility to file the police report and the insurance claim. So… I do what I need to do. Give him the details of the crime. As he’s leaving he says “So, you’ll want to be sure to let us know right away if it turns up. Like, if one of your employees just forgot to tell you where it is, we would sure hate to have them experience 12 guns pointed in their face.” WHAAT THE FUCK?? I laughed him off… thinking that was his very poor attempt at a joke. He didn’t laugh. So I assured him that would indeed be something to try and avoid, and said I’d be sure to “warn” all of my employees. But why? Why haven’t the cops learned anything yet? Why on earth would he suggest that they would take someone by gunpoint for being in possession of a stolen trailer? And why would it be like a whole damn brigade of them pointing their guns?? Is this just going to get worse before it gets better? Ugh. I hope not.

  • If there are any attorneys out there that are tired of partaking in the criminal fraud on the people connect with me.  I have at least 4 lawsuits that will retire you forever!
