 Failsafe projections

None of us feel comfortable without some idea of what lies ahead, so allow me to offer a few projections that require no crystal ball to make.  I can predict with a high degree of confidence that:

1.  Most people will not take any interest in the origin and nature of money.

2.  Most people will not seek to understand the role of money in a market economy.

3.  Most people will not take any interest in central banking or the American state’s central bank, the Federal Reserve.

4.  If questioned, most people will agree with the “experts” that a central bank is absolutely necessary to manage the economy, otherwise we would fall prey to financial crises or depressions.

5.  Most people will continue to believe rising prices are a natural outcome of a market economy, with the puzzling exception of digital gadgets.

6.  Most people will continue to believe economic and foreign interventionism is a Good Thing, if executed by politicians of their preferred political party.

7.  Most people will continue to believe in government-provided free lunches.

8.  Most people will continue to believe in the government’s number one free lunch, public education, which like all government free lunches needs more funding.

9.  Most people will continue to believe that victims of U.S. invasions hate us for our freedoms.

10.  Most people will continue to believe we need the state, however corrupt and burdensome, because otherwise we would have chaos and the strong would dominate the weak….
