New economics according to the brothers Grimm

The future which we discount so freely honors our drafts on it. Six months [of] restraint avails to set us right, and our credit creations, as anticipations of future product of labor, become solidified.
-- Sumner

but how much longer can this go on?
Largely because of the influence of Christianity, the debilitating sin of envy has no social standing here...

ah,... "keeping up with the Jones" mean anything to you?
...there is the tradition of law, respect for private property, tradition of profit, and contractual freedom.

these are being eroded
Have fun,

New Some of those are interesting
and some are a bit misguided.

For instance...#3 says borrowing to pay for war is bad...but in #4 they seem to agree that deficits are at least somewhat beneficial, as long as they aren't protracted.

Other places seem to ignore effects of tranfer between parties (people, countries) when making the blanket statement "we are no better off". Well at a macro enough level it is certainly a zero sum game (subtract value of iron ore removed from the ground from steel produced because the ore came from the earth at an asset cost...yadda)...so no matter what we do...in their view we will never be any better off economically.

Glad is all theoretical.
