China realizes that fossil fuels are a technology that has seen it’s time and yet the U.S. Congress keeps focusing on fixing highways rather than fixing climate change.  The U.S. still thinks that the market will fix all our problems so green companies and alternative fuels will establish themselves if there are demands for it […]

Global Principles for a Healthy World The chip stack leader in a poker game can afford to throw their weight around.  They can play average hands and force others with average hands to retreat and they can challenge good hands and force others with good hands to fold as they play to the fear that […]

Money Kool-Aid

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s official.  The financial markets have been diagnosed with bipolar disease.  Wildly down one day and then up the next (or even during the same day).  Everyone wants to know whether consumers will have the confidence to keep buying anything and everything they can find.  One day it seems we will keep buying and buying […]

Posted on: May. 24, 2011  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

Whether it is the Middle East or an American election, there is a natural tension between political and economic change.  In Egypt, for example, political change has caused an old regime to be ousted while the new government is just trying to form and develop.  This change though, while political, has yet to address how […]

There is a collective energy that flows in our global world.  Think about how many of us are reflecting on the impact of the killing of Osama Bin Laden (OBL).  Ironically, this came just briefly after many of us, although a smaller majority, had watched the pomp and circumstance of the Royal Wedding.  To some, […]

Re-imagining Money as a Fair Tender There is a quote by William Faulkner that “History isn’t dead; it’s not even past.”  There is a lot of talk that with the U.S. national debt where it is, this unsustainable level will bring the U.S. and its currency down.
