    @Van S, Thanks Van. Yes money-ism, or the worship of capital, is so common, so normal, it’s almost impossible to recognize it. But it has very recognizable effects…and the $30 trillion debt we Americans now have is clear evidence that debt driven consumption has a terminus well before death. Sorry Keynes, but in the short run we get buried in insurmountable debt long before we “die.”

    @admin,
    Eric,
    I got to hear and meet you at a John Kelly Wealth builder’s conference in ’08 where you spoke on the spirit of empire which was tremendous. You indicated you were working on a book on that subject. Is that out or if not any eta?
    Thanks, blessings,
    Van

    @Van S,
    Yup. You’re right. It’s a bit fast. I had to listen several times but the argument is sound.

    Eric,
    Quite thought provoking and informative-but to be honest, for those of us who aren’t knowledgeable about all the intricacies of Austrian Free Market vs Keynesian economic theory this was like drinking drinking from a fire hose. I guess we need to listen several times but would be nice if you could delineate the various concepts represented here.
    Also, per DP I believe JM Keynes didn’t have too much of an interest in the ladies as represented here.
    Thanks for sharing Eric, shalom, Van

    My favorite part is the “animal spirits” – bear and bull. Of my many criticisms of modern capital-ism, I never thought I could add animism. But hey, new news. Hope you enjoyed it.
