This blog is supposedly concerned with fairness and helping others.  Is this just about our (my) need to make ourselves feel better about whom we think we are?  When it comes right down to it, aren’t we are all just looking out for number one, especially in relation to money? When investment advisors interview some […]

The Wealth Conspiracy

Posted on: May. 8, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

It’s in your food supply.  It affects your health.  The Fed Chairman does it.  Robin Hood did it.  Dying people must deal with it.  The 1% get their share but so do single Moms.  You can find it in merit scholarships.  It was behind the Cold War.  It pits the old against the young and […]

Knowledgeable Pinheads and Sneaky Pickpockets make the Economic Universe Let’s go back to the beginning…the very beginning.  All matter was gold until the great explosion sent gold pieces hurling into deep space.  When the stars and planets formed though they were not just made of gold and land but combined with labor and capital.  And […]

A Story of How to Optimize Children and Increase Profits I have no evidence for my conspiracy theory that my children are out to get me.  There seems to be something dastardly in their eye on the oft chance that they look at me, which is rare these days.  What would cause them to avoid […]

Smart Currencies Revisited On June 7, 2011, I posted a blog about alternative currency movements that are springing up.  The Boodleworld site also has a resources section that covers alternatives to money.  It seems that the financial meltdown has spurned a number of new innovative forms of money.  The problem with barter systems, which is […]

Shoot the Screenwriter

The Changing Money Myth In the movie “The Artist,” George Valentin gets caught up with the advent of movie sound and left behind as an actor.  Like the typewriter repair person, he is rendered useless by technological change.  In a tribute to the old Hollywood silent days it is against all odds that a movie […]

Exercise:  What have you done in your life that was done for money but felt wrong since you believed that you didn’t have a better choice? As each person ages, we must decide at what point do we apply the label “old” to ourselves.  Like becoming rich, there is not one point when you are […]

Junk Money

I dream worlds.  They are other worlds which I figure must be in alien realms or distant lands.  I used to dream about relationships which contained the characters in my life like one would view a play at a theater.  No more, I only see some bizarre world where I can’t explain what happens or […]
