Economics 101

"There are, right now, millions of people around the world coming up with ways to make your life better in order to make their life better. Nobody told them to, no law requires them to, and they don't even know you. All we have to do is let them." Nicholas Sarwark

Say's law of markets is a classical economic theory that says that production is the source of demand. It was developed in 1803 by French classical economist and journalist, Jean-Baptiste Say, was influential because it deals with how a society creates wealth and the nature of economic activity. According to Say's law, the ability to demand something is financed by supplying a different good. To have the means to buy, you first have to have something to sell, Say reasoned. So, the source of demand is production, not money. Supply creates creates its own demand.

The law of markets ran counter to the mercantilist view that money is the source of wealth. It supports the view that governments should not interfere with the free market and should adopt laissez-faire economics. Say's law still lives on in modern neoclassical economic models which assume that all markets clear.

The Keynesian school of economists argue against Say's Law. They believe demand is the source of supply. Give people money and they will spend it on stuff they demand. But is this not just Say's Law applied to money? If you supply more money the stuff people want will demand it and so increase prices (inflation). This is not wealth creation. It is wealth destruction. Money is not wealth. It is just paper. Lots of paper money may still not buy bread.

"Demand-side stimulus is ... the absurd idea, that an economy prospers by consuming and borrowing instead of producing and saving." (see here)

Central banks are set to destroy our societies and economies from within.

Forget 'Free Market Capitalism', This Is Free Money Socialism (For The 1%)

The destruction of wealth through monetary inflation, far from rescuing the economy, simply adds to the national woes by devaluing the efforts and wealth of ordinary people.

We are witnessing a historic unraveling here.

From David Stockman:

“The single greatest threat to capitalist prosperity in America today is the insidious, in-grown Keynesian groupthink of the monetary central planners who run the Fed and dictate its policy narratives...”

  • "Where does the government get the money that it spends into the economy?" 
  • "What would the lender who lends money to the government have done with his money had he not lent to the government?"

Ayn Rand: “We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.”

As an example, government interference in housing has had some very bad consequences.
