The Federal budget for 2017 ---

Jensen Comment
Note that even before the 2018 corporate tax cuts the corporate income tax has been a shrinking part of the Federal budget of the most recent decades. I've long been an advocate of replacing it with a VAT tax but liberals and conservatives alike hate that idea.

Medicare and Medicaid are the least sustainable entitlements predicted for the future.

Interest on government debt is a huge worry since foreign interests (think China and the oil-rich nations of the Middle East) own so much of it with the threat that one day these large investors will stop rolling over their investments in USA debt.

Sometimes the grass is greener on the other side because it's been fertilized with more bullshit.


The Lucretius Problem is a mental defect where we assume the worst case event that has happened is the worst case event that can happen ---


The worst form of inequality is to try to make unequal things equal.


How many times have we heard ‘free tuition,’ ‘free health care,’ and free you-name-it? If a particular good or service is truly free, we can have as much of it as we want without the sacrifice of other goods or services. Take a ‘free’ library; is it really free? The answer is no. Had the library not been built, that $50 million could have purchased something else. That something else sacrificed is the cost of the library. While users of the library might pay a zero price, zero price and free are not one and the same. So when politicians talk about providing something free, ask them to identify the beneficent Santa Claus or tooth fairy.
Walter Williams


Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket.
Eric Hoffer.


The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

I have lots of ideas . . . I always have more ideas than I can possibly write about.” So he prays for discernment about what ideas to pursue and what ideas to let die.

And many writers have imagined for themselves republics and principalities that have never been seen or known to exist in reality; for there is such a gap between how one lives and how one ought to live that anyone who abandons what is done for what ought to be done learns his ruin rather than his preservation: for a man who wishes to profess goodness at all times will come to ruin among so many who are not good.

The same thing happens for most DUI cases in San Antonio where judges are heavily dependent upon law firms for political contributions. Law firms giving the most to particular judges often get the best deals for their clients.. I don't think "randomly assigned" applies to many court assignments in San Antonio.

Bloomberg:  Now Even Swedes Are Questioning the Welfare State ---

. . .

Paying some of the world’s highest income-tax rates has been the cornerstone of Scandinavia’s social contract, with the political consensus in Sweden to save money for when the economy is less healthy. Yet the country is showing strains all too familiar in other parts of Europe with nationalists gaining support and Swedes increasingly questioning the sustainability of their fabled cradle-to-grave welfare system.

Resentment has built over the influx of more than 600,000 immigrants over the past five years, many from war-ravaged countries like Afghanistan and Syria, a huge number for a country of 10 million people. 

There are also soaring crime rates, gang violence, complaints about education and pregnant mothers even being turned away from maternity wards due to a lack of capacity. The number of people waiting longer than 90 days for an operation or specialist treatment has tripled over the past four years.

“The Swedish social contract needs to be reformed,” a dozen entrepreneurs including Nordea Bank AB Chairman Bjorn Wahlroos and Kreab Founder Peje Emilsson wrote in an op-ed in the Dagens Industri newspaper on May 31. “Despite high taxes, politics isn’t delivering its part of the contract in important areas. We get poor value for money.”

There are warning signs across Europe of what can happen if disillusionment goes unaddressed. In Britain, popular anger over rising immigration and creaking public services fueled the vote to leave the European Union. Nationalist parties, on the march across continent, just swept to power in Italy.

Unless the system is protected, Sweden risks ending up joining them and ushering in populist groups, said Leif Ostling, the former chairman of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise who quit in November after revelations of his tax affairs.

“There are big swings on the way,” said Ostling, 72. He has defended himself against public questions over an offshore account by asking what he gets in return for his money. “If there’s no will to understand the problem, you won’t solve it, and then I’m not prepared to pay any tax at all. And I think a lot of other citizens also feel that way.”

Guaranteed Income ---

Guaranteed Income Experiment in Canada
In a three-year pilot funded by the provincial government, about 4,000 people in Ontario are getting monthly stipends to boost them to at least 75 percent of the poverty line. That translates to a minimum annual income of $17,000 in Canadian dollars (about $13,000 US) for single people, $24,000 for married couples. Lindsay has about half the people in the pilot—some 10 percent of the town’s population.

Jensen Comment
The lead illustration in this article suggests that for some this is just a safety net raise for the disabled. As such it's a good deed but does not lead to eventual recipient productivity for the long-term disabled. In contrast, Stockton, California has a guaranteed income program aimed more at unemployed workers in need of assistance while training for job skills. Finland dropped its experiment after finding that the guaranteed income was not marginally reducing unemployment any better than earlier safety nets for the poor.

My point here is that when there are other safety nets for the poor are in place guaranteed minimum income will not reduce unemployment for people who will not or cannot work.

Engels and Later Marx used the phrase "industrial reserve army" as a catchall for the unemployed even in a communist or socialist regime ---

Castro later discovered that supplying all citizens with egalitarian free housing, transportation, education, medical care, and food rations greatly destroyed incentives to work among many of the unemployed.

"Report: Castro says Cuban model doesn't work," by Paul Haven. Associated Press, Yahoo News, September 8, 2010 ---

Fidel Castro told a visiting American journalist that Cuba's communist economic model doesn't work, a rare comment on domestic affairs from a man who has conspicuously steered clear of local issues since stepping down four years ago.

The fact that things are not working efficiently on this cash-strapped Caribbean island is hardly news. Fidel's brother Raul, the country's president, has said the same thing repeatedly. But the blunt assessment by the father of Cuba's 1959 revolution is sure to raise eyebrows.

Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent for The Atlantic magazine, asked if Cuba's economic system was still worth exporting to other countries, and Castro replied: "The Cuban model doesn't even work for us anymore" Goldberg wrote Wednesday in a post on his Atlantic blog.

He said Castro made the comment casually over lunch following a long talk about the Middle East, and did not elaborate. The Cuban government had no immediate comment on Goldberg's account.

Since stepping down from power in 2006, the ex-president has focused almost entirely on international affairs and said very little about Cuba and its politics, perhaps to limit the perception he is stepping on his brother's toes.

Goldberg, who traveled to Cuba at Castro's invitation last week to discuss a recent Atlantic article he wrote about Iran's nuclear program, also reported on Tuesday that Castro questioned his own actions during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, including his recommendation to Soviet leaders that they use nuclear weapons against the United States.

Even after the fall of the Soviet Union, Cuba has clung to its communist system.

The state controls well over 90 percent of the economy, paying workers salaries of about $20 a month in return for free health care and education, and nearly free transportation and housing. At least a portion of every citizen's food needs are sold to them through ration books at heavily subsidized prices.

President Raul Castro and others have instituted a series of limited economic reforms, and have warned Cubans that they need to start working harder and expecting less from the government. But the president has also made it clear he has no desire to depart from Cuba's socialist system or embrace capitalism.

Fidel Castro stepped down temporarily in July 2006 due to a serious illness that nearly killed him.

He resigned permanently two years later, but remains head of the Communist Party. After staying almost entirely out of the spotlight for four years, he re-emerged in July and now speaks frequently about international affairs. He has been warning for weeks of the threat of a nuclear war over Iran.

Castro's interview with Goldberg is the only one he has given to an American journalist since he left office.

Stossel: Canada's Professor Jordan Peterson vs. 'Social Justice Warriors' ---

Watch the Video

. . .

Peterson defends his position to John Stossel: "I don't care what people want to be called. That's fine, but that doesn't mean I should be compelled by law to call them that."

It's not just students who slam Peterson. In one TV interview, Peterson stayed calm while the host tried to put words in his mouth.

"You are saying that women aren't intelligent enough to run these top companies....You don't believe in equal pay," Cathy Newman, the reporter at Britain's Channel 4 News, insisted.

"No, I'm not saying that at all," Peterson responded. He hadn't said that. What he had said, is that natural differences explain most of the gender wage gap.

As an example, Peterson cites studies that find, in wealthy countries that focus most on equality, like Sweden, even fewer women major in science and math. Instead they pick fields that deal with people, like teaching, and men tend more toward technical fields.


Peterson says this shows that when men and women have the most freedom to decide what they do, they pick fields that line up with their natural biological interests.

That idea infuriates leftists. "It should infuriate them," Peterson tells Stossel. "Because I'm going right at the heart of the radical leftist doctrine."

That doctrine is social justice, the idea that all groups should have equal outcomes; that there should be just as many female CEOs, scientists, and computer programmers, because men and women are essentially the same. If outcomes differ, it must be sexism.


Peterson says that the focus on group equality is a spinoff of Marxism. That after Marxism failed spectacularly in the economic realm, Marxists applied their way of thinking to issues like the difference between men and women.

"We've got a hundred million corpses stacked up to demonstrate" the failure of Marxism, says Peterson. And the new Marxism-derived focus on group equality won't end any better.

Peterson calls for the opposite of Marxism–a focus on the individual.

He says people should stick with "the principles that govern the West; capitalist principles. The free market principles." With those principles "we do better than any place has ever done."

Charitable Giving And The Tax Cuts And Jobs Act ---

Alex Brill & Derrick Choe (American Enterprise Institute), Charitable Giving and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

This paper investigates how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act affects household charitable giving in the United States. We find that the law will reduce charitable giving by $17.2 billion (4.0 percent) in 2018 according to a static model and $16.3 billion assuming a modest boost to growth. Four-fifths of this decline is driven by an increase in the number of taxpayers who claim the standard deduction.

We also investigate two policy options that could boost total giving above previous levels: an above-the-line deduction and a tax credit.

Theranos Founder Elizabeth Holmes Charged With Wire Fraud ---

Theranos Inc. founder Elizabeth Holmes, who reigned briefly as the world’s youngest female self-made billionaire over her promise to revolutionize blood testing, was criminally charged with defrauding investors along with the company’s former president.

The indictment announced Friday by the U.S. Attorney in San Francisco alleging wire fraud follows claims by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that Theranos, Holmes and the company’s ex-president, Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani, lied about their technology while raising more than $700 million to build the medical-testing startup.

The indictment came out moments after Theranos said Holmes would be stepping down from the blood-testing company that has unraveled amid revelations that her main product was a fraud.

After the testing device that Holmes claimed would be able run hundreds of medical tests on a single drop of blood was shown not to work, Holmes was barred from running a clinical company by U.S. regulators and was sued by investors, and the company let go many of its employees.

The recent book, “Bad Blood,” details the Theranos story and is a fascinating read. Based solely on that book, the charges against Holmes and her colleague/lover Sunny seem well deserved. I highly recommend the book.

IBM's Project Debater ---

NBC News:  New IBM robot holds its own in a debate with a human ---

Project Debater gets its knowledge from hundreds of millions of journal articles, but humans still have one key advantage.

The human brain may be the ultimate super computer, but artificial intelligence is catching up so fast that it can now hold a substantive debate with a human.

IBM’s Project Debater made its public debut in San Francisco Monday afternoon, where it squared off against Noa Ovadia, the 2016 Israeli debate champion, and in a second debate against Dan Zafrir, a nationally renowned debater in Israel. The new AI system is the latest grand challenge from IBM, which previously created Deep Blue, the program that beat chess champion Garry Kasparov, and Watson, which bested humans on the game show Jeopardy.

In its first public outing, Project Debater turned out to be a formidable opponent, scanning the hundreds of millions of newspaper and journal articles in its memory to quickly synthesize an argument on a topic and position it was assigned on the spot. The skinny, black, rectangular screen stands about five and a half feet tall, putting it around the same height as a human opponent.

“Project Debater could be the ultimate fact-based sounding board without the bias that often comes from humans,” said Arvind Krishna, director of IBM Research.

An audience survey taken before and after each debate found that Project Debater better enriched the audience’s knowledge as it argued in favor of subsidies for space exploration and in favor of telemedicine, but that the human debaters did a better job delivering their speeches.

This comes from Project Debater’s ability to “dive into a lot of data very quickly and gather information and numbers we don’t have access to quickly,” said Ranit Aharonov, manager of the Project Debater team in Haifa, Israel.

Project Debater looks for sentences and clauses in journals that are relevant to the topic and determines what the potential clashes could be around the topic, according to Aharonov. It then listens and thinks — an act illustrated by three dancing circles on its screen — before it prepares to deliver its counterpoints.

The AI isn’t trained on topics — it’s trained on the art of debate. For the most part, Project Debater spoke in natural language, choosing the same words and sentence structures as a native English speaker. It even dropped the odd joke, but with the expected robotic delivery.

When arguing in support of telemedicine, Project Debater said: “I can’t say it makes my blood boil because I have no blood,” and then launched into a passionate defense of technological advances.

June 25, 2018 reply from Paul Williams


Early humans all lived in socialist societies -- tribes. It could very well be the case that if not for humans basic socialist tendencies we would not be here (David Sloan Wilson has summarized the extensive research on the science of human nature in Does Altruism Exist? Culture, Genes, and the Welfare of Others). Native Americans successfully populated North America for 16,000 years without the wisdom of Ayn Rand or Frederich Hayek.

The Incan and Mayan civilizations lasted many centuries and they were not capitalist societies. Even in the U.S. we socialized knowledge production and higher education through a system of State run universities, of which many AECMers have been direct beneficiaries. Humans' choices are not simplistically binary -- either what we have or disaster. Give human intelligence and creativity more credit than that. If you want to rely on history as some sort of confirmation that God created the earth billions of years ago to prepare it for what we have experienced in just the last couple of hundred years perhaps you need to go back further in history than the 18th century.


June 25, 2018 reply from Bob Jensen

Hi Paul,

Last night on Sixty Minutes CBS did a Part 2 on the Isle of Eigg on the coast of Scotland --- 

It is an interesting illustration of communal living for about 100 people in the 21st Century --- 

The main point is that communal living on Eigg today is no longer possible as it was in the days of hunters and gatherers. A rather minimal standard of living is scraped out due mainly to outside benefactors, particularly one anonymous benefactor that provided the funds to buy the island and to build renewable electric power. However, sustainable living comes mainly from the outside such as a popular musician who performs for money in the U.K. and tourists who visit for a few hours at a time (there are no overnight facilities or even restaurants for tourists).

The standard of living on Eigg is minimal, and the people block all immigration other than when a current resident brings in a new spouse. There is an elementary school for five children, but nothing is said about grades 7-12 or higher education. The residents seem to have few skills other than crafts. There is one mechanic who supposedly can "fix anything," but I doubt that he can fix anything technical with computers.

No mention is made of medical services, but my guess is that people in trouble have to be taken to the mainland. It's also not clear if the poor people on Eigg pay taxes or participate in the U.K. national health system. If so I don't know how most of them would raise the money to pay their taxes.

The point is that communal living in the 21st Century is quite dependent upon capitalism from the outside world if the Isle of Eigg is any example.

On its own communal living is no longer sustainable for residents nor is the community inviting to immigrants.
