The Boomer Legacy

Commerce

The Market is always Right

Market-failure is an oxymoron, for supply will always match demand when we unshackle the power of free trade. By definition fraud speculation oversupply dumping shortages maldistribution usury inequality nepotism monopolies cartels carpetbagging oligarchy hypergamy insider-trading money-laundering daigou bubbles bailouts people-trafficking corruption bunga-bunga theft fascism slavery 13 illuminati bloodlines inefficiency simply cannot exist. Wealth creation is seldom can only be achieved by hard work and balancing of risk. Riches are nearly always never acquired by inheritance, marriage or asset-value inflation.

Choices that face our society can only be framed in economic terms. The profit motive is the sole driving force of civilisation and GDP is its only metric. Likewise, the overarching self-interest of lending institutions to protect shareholders' equity is an unassailable bulwark upon which our entire financial system is built.

All debt is investment and all savings are misdirected capital. Any attempt by governments or citizens to change the course of business is unwarranted and misguided. Only free trade, nimble competition, persistent micro-economic reform and completely unfettered markets will never always determine the fair value of everything, to deliver increasing prosperity for the ruling-elite all.
