How to Know if You Are Dead or Not (Part I)

Posted on: Mar. 16, 2016  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: General

By now, if you are reading this I am most likely dead.  Back in July of 2014 (Autopsy: The Death of You), I said that things must change or we would all face dire consequences.  Well, I can’t say for sure what it is that got me, perhaps it was a simple as an algae […]

Autopsy: The Death of You (Along With the Death of Meliorism*)

Posted on: Jul. 22, 2014  |  By: Ronnie Kahn  |  Category: Advice, General

The Individual is dead. Top money was paid to put out the mother of all hits.  I kinda liked you too. Why did it happen? Should we hire a detective to find out why you are dead? It might make as much sense as you performing an autopsy on yourself. Time of death: thirty years […]

If it’s Broke, Don’t Fix It

A Challenge to Millennials:  Recreate a World Where Participation Has Meaning There are a scant few who would defend that money works.  If you are one of the lucky ones for whom it is working, than you would also be one of those who are quietly doing the defending.  For the vast majority though, money […]

I was once a young man.  I not only suffered from the petulance of youth but at the same time pictured the possibility of an ideal world in which I could personally make a difference.  I became disheartened though when I found myself living paycheck to paycheck and every dollar that came in was a […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

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 […]
