Artificial Stupidity

Consciousness and Decision Making:  Are we just phoning it in? I was having a fun and interesting discussion with my son, who is in college and is allowed to think these days, about the Spike Jonze movie “Her” and artificial intelligence (AI).  While many of us have heard of robotic type toys for kids that […]

Financial Fairness Fridays

Only You Can Save Us from Catastrophe Perhaps you have heard about Moral Mondays (MM).  The folks in North Carolina take Monday as a day to restore fairness in government and social justice.  Now that these activists have begun to stimulate our consciousness into action, it is time to add another day to the social […]

Wel-Fairness (Part II)

Posted on: Oct. 2, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

(continued from Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Welfare States) The question of when an individual should be protected from a risk, of course, comes down to economics.  It is obvious to most of us now that paying for someone’s food by giving out food stamps or paying for social security and Medicare when we are all […]

Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Welfare States (Part I)

Posted on: Sep. 18, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

When Mitt Romney said that nearly half of Americans “believe they are victims” and are dependent on the government, he is tapping into not just should government be large or small but the hot button issue of whether government’s role can help protect its citizens from some of the risks that can confront us.  It […]

Money, Memory, and Muchness

A Key to the Financial Planning Lock:  “Off With Your Head!”   Alice thought to herself, “Then there’s no use in speaking.”  The voices didn’t join in this time, as she hadn’t spoken, but to her great surprise they all thought in chorus (I hope you understand what thinking in chorus means-for I must confess […]

What is on Each Side of the Money Coin? (Part II)

Posted on: Jul. 31, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: Advice, General

In Part I, we were looking into that the money is coin is made up of risk on one side with control on the other and that each one is a concept made up by language.  So we come back to money as a socially constructed illusion.  What our culture loves to tell us to […]

What is on Each Side of the Money Coin? (Part I)

Posted on: Jul. 18, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: Advice, General

The magician’s trick pulls the coin out from behind our ear.  On one side of that coin is risk and the other is control.  They are part of the same coin; a sleight of hand that we call money.  We love to watch the illusion and ask “how did they do that?”  We tell ourselves […]

The Ship Made of Money Approaches the Hidden Iceberg

Posted on: Jun. 19, 2012  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

Is Money at a Tipping Point? As the Obama administration announces a policy to conditionally not deport those under thirty who came to the U.S. as children and the U.S. Supreme Court will be reviewing the controversial Arizona law on immigration, we see emotional rhetoric on each side of the fence, so to speak.   Most […]

The Wealth Conspiracy

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 […]

The Big Buck Theory

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 […]
