Description

Supports of clean energy want to see alternatives to oil and coal take the lead in America, but don’t often consider the costs to consumers.

Josh Smith is a research manager with the Center for Growth and Opportunity at Utah State University. He joins the podcast today to talk about Renewal Portfolio Standards (RPS) and how these well-intentioned policies for state energy usage can have a lopsided impact on those with the fewest resources.

  • I was curious if there are any folks around here who subscribe to any of Casey Research’s paid publications. I’m wondering if you do- 1) Do you feel it is a good value? 2) Has it helped you increase your wealth? 3) What level of investor is the publication you selected geared towards? I’m not expecting anyone to reveal any “top secret” stuff, I’m only to trying to decide if subscribing is right for me. Thanks!

  • The purpose of this study is to valuate Fission Uranium Corp (FCU). As Matt Anderson pointed out in the UEC discussion, it would be highly useful to have multiple company studies going on in multiple threads. Participation from all members is strongly encouraged. Before we begin, FULL DISCLOSURE: This is my very FIRST attempt at valuating an uranium company. In fact, this is my first attempt at valuating any resource company. Since this is my first attempt, feedback from more advanced investors/speculators would be greatly appreciated. I will try to make this thread easy to follow by breaking up this study into categories. Some of the categories may include: Management Team Share Structure Properties and Ownership Location Cost structure/Financing Projected Growth Valuation at various Uranium Prices If you have a category you would like to add, simply begin your post with it’s name so other members can quickly navigate. I’m going to start with Management Team and Share Structure.

  • Back over on the Beginners Guide to Fundmental Analysis, Maurice proposed some valuations on a couple of UEC’s properties. I figured it would be much easier to start a group and have multiple company studies going on with multiple threads rather than trying to cram them all onto one thread. Maurice, if you want to propose your starting valuations here, I’ll be happy to participate and maybe we could get others to join in as well. Thanks

  • People tend to think that despots are a surprise. Suddenly a society encounters a Hugo Chavez, a Hitler, a Fidel Castro, Mussolini. After that society suffers as a victim the rigors of despotism. In this book I put myself away of the the myth of the innocent society. On the contrary, the despot is the product of misconceptions that have been injected or prevail in a society. They are very specific ideas, completely incompatible with the notion of limited government, representation and rule of law. The book is now available in the Liberty.me library to download. Those misconceptions, which are not exhausted in this list are: identification of dictatorship with physical violence, absolute democracy, social democracy, egalitarianism, the class struggle, identifying legislative will of state law and the pursuit of government wise, the income tax even the notion that the press is going to keep us free. And there is an answer that we can search together: Can this happen in the USA? Just ask yourself if these misconceptions are already settled.
