  • Airline De-Regulation, United Airlines, and YouTube

    Reprinted from GaryNorth.com The American airline industry was de-regulated in 1978 under President Carter, not Reagan. This forced airlines to change. From this time on, they had to meet customer demand. They were no longer protected by federal law against low-cost fares. The corporate culture of the airlines could not adjust. There was an exception: […]

  • Fractional Reserve Airline Seats

    Every year, airlines deny thousands of passengers seats on flights due to overbooking.  Airlines use sophisticated modeling to manage overbooking to maximize profits given the reality of passenger no-shows.  Legally permissible under their “contract of carriage” with passengers, fewer than one-tenth of one percent of all passengers lose seats due to overbooking.[1]  But when Dr. […]

  • No Nation Can Harm Another Economically

    My recent Mises Daily Article titled Two Common Objections to Unilateral Free Trade drew some criticism that I would like to answer.   Unilateral free trade rewards the country that adopts it   Several commented that my use of the term “unilateral” negated my argument.

    “Beneath the symbol We’ll all assemble Oh how we’ll fly Oh how we’ll tremble” — Captain Beefheart, “Ice Cream for Crow” If interest rates are the symbol beneath of which we all assemble, then there are some bad times ahead.

    Mr. Trump has gone to war. It seems like only yesterday the braggart billionaire denounced former president George W. Bush for lying about the presence of “weapons of mass destruction” in Iraq in order to goad us into invasion. “Obviously the war in Iraq was a big, fat mistake,” Trump said, to whoops and hollers […]

  • Canada’s January GDP Numbers Raise Hopes and Obscure Reality

    Canada’s early 2017 GDP numbers measure nothing. Gross domestic product doesn’t measure the long-term viability of a financial system built on artificially low interest rates. Nor does it measure the quality of goods, and certainly, not the depth and meaning we assign to each marginal unit. For, even a broken window contributes to the GDP. […]

Trump will make a terrible mess, destabilize income security and health care access, and skew social power in favor of fat cats, and all […]

  • The Problems with the “Loonies,” Part Three

    There was no period in history when the Bank of Canada issued “interest-free” loans to the government the way the Loonies imagine. It’s as if Canadian infrastructure was given a “free lunch,” only to be eroded by the private interests of international banking cartels. Sure, banks wield tremendous power vis-à-vis the common man. But there […]

  • The Problem with the “Loonies”, Part Two

    Because the Loonies are often conspiratorial in their thinking, they’ve mistaken the peculiar case that “money is debt” by jumping to the conclusion that all debt certificates are the same thing as money. Loonies believe the government can force interest-free loans through the nation’s central bank, the Bank of Canada. The Loonie idea is that […]

  • The Problem with the “Loonies”, Part One

    Canadian “Greenbackers” are those people who believe the government should force interest-free loans through the nation’s central bank, the Bank of Canada. Presumably, this would entail something similar to what happened in the Great Depression, where governments essentially forced private banks to end the “credit famine.” “Greenbackers” is an American term so I prefer the […]
