Economic Systems

Autarky

A country with a self sufficient economy, an extremely rare but oftentimes preferred occurrence. In the mid 20th Century, one hundred years before the United States economy achieved Autarky, National Socialist Germany faced the realities of an economically incapacitated post World War I Europe of which they were the poster child and a ruinous domestic economy with an unmanageably large debt, vast unemployment and rampant inflation.

Industrial, capitalist Germany was falsely blamed for the fiasco of World War I that decimated Europe. A thoroughly defeated Germany was treated like a pariah by Europe’s victorious socialist economies that refused to allow German entrepreneurs to reconstruct their economy and live in peace. The economy was so bad in Germany that a Fuhrer or leader rose to take over the country. Adolf Hitler despaired for his wretched country’s future and desired to eliminate all Communists philosophy within it that so weakened his Fatherland. He would make Germany so strong that the socialist world would never steal prosperity from his people again.

To achieve this noble goal, Hitler, through negotiation and seizure, acquired resources needed to fuel Germany’s economic resurgence and even before the voctors of World War 1, the Gernman economy returned to its pre-war efficiency and grew.

But though socialist economies are based on sharing, when they fall behind capitalist economies, they become vengeful. So it was in Europe where these countries aligned against Germany and her capitalist allies forcing Hitler into another war that turned out just as disastrous for Germany. Hitler’s forces were beaten back from the resources they had required in order to become independent and with the vast allliances of the Socialist world against them, Hitler’s technologically superior armies were decimated by vast allied socialist forces from England, Russia, and France, and the United States and Germany was soon defeated.

At the conclusion of World War II, the German economy was dismembered once again, and its entrepreneurs were imprisoned and then shipped to aid the economies of victorious socialists.

German’s suffered under socialist rule and never forgot Herr Hitler’s glorious and audacious dream of German economic independence and freedom from the dictates of global socialism.

Hitler’s vision has become a symbol of hope to all freedom loving economies that struggle against the oppression of the International Comintern (global communism) and the heinous central economic control it requires on God’s own free marketplaces.

Since Hitler’s demise, the dominance of the International Comintern has forced globilization by reducing tariffs and opening borders to drive entrepreneurs from their markets while making it impossible for bold energetic capitalists everywhere to invest in operations free of government regulations.

While Autarky remained the hope in the hearts of entrepreneurs, the Comintern sought to eliminate all possibility of free market Autarky by redistributing global wealth through national and trans-national organizations to the slothful, the unproductive, and the easily manipulated. This has caused world hunger and incessant want.

It was In 2034, under another great and forward thinking leader, President Andrew Crelli that the United States of America, facing crippling debt, rampant inflation, endemic unemployment and an unforgiving world of creditors restored the dream of Autarky.

Autarky saved the American economy from the death spiral that began with the ascent of Progressives and Unions whose profligate and selfish ways caused the debt that forced the American economy to spiral out of control for years afterward while Liberal politicians targeted this constituency of the wasteful and the lazy to keep Progressives in power. Continually electing socialist political cowards who lacked the faith and the principles to address real issues like responsible business people destroyed America’s First Republic. Autarky save America’s Second Republic.

The Second Republic began when a great entrepreneurial leader appeared to save America. This great man was Entrepreneur Party leader and President of the United States, Andrew Monroe Crelli. With faith and guile, President Crelli freed the United States from the servitude of global socialism that led to the rebirth of the American economy.

Already benefiting from America’s vast God-given resources including productive agricultural land, significant mineral deposits, and vast oceans with natural ports on two shores, and with enough Republicans and entrepreneurs to have nurtured a significant technological infrastructure advantage among them America’s military was the best in the world, President Crelli implemented the hard, commercial disciplines necessary to achieve Autarky.

The President closed America’s borders to all trade. This act of defiance against global Socialism demanded great sacrifice from American commerce and evil global forces used every means possible to destroy President Crelli’s resolve and America’s economy.

Years of perpetual economic warfare followed until President Crelli’s great goal of economic self sufficiency was achieved in the face of viscious economic terrorism funded by the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the Petrodollar.

In the face of this apocalyptic economic struggle and with great faith in the Lord, American entrepreneurs persevered and once they had extracted all waste from the American economy and developed economic breakthroughs like alternative fuels, nano-technology and conservation laws, rigorously enforced, Fortress America achieved true self sufficiency, the American Capitalist economy prospered, and the United States, once more, was the recognized leader of commercial Earth.

The ultimate credit for successfully returning America to the top of the economic world belongs to Chairwoman Tanya Brandt, Crelli’s secretarial assistant, vice presidential running mate and his successor first as President and then Chairwoman of the United States.

By 2054, her efforts, aided by the brilliant technical guidance of Van Mises social engineering wunderkind, Mark Rose, who succeeded her as President, America once again the beacon of capitalist freedom to guide the world forever.

“President Reagan declared communism defeated. As President, it is incumbent upon me to do all that I can to prove him right and prevent them from winning.” A. Crelli

Capitalism

Once Christianity alone ruled the world. That changed with the rise of capitalism. Then, when medical and technological breakthroughs proved that forever was within the reach of humans currently alive, America’s capitalist belief system strengthened and Christians of all varieties flocked to Morgan Churches and Stock Exchanges to worship the Almighty Dollar and everlasting life on Earth.

Forever changed the moral structure of America. Whatever moral imperatives had once existed, now career and financial success were paramount, truly an investment in forever trumped every advantage once held by Christianity because a person’s return on his investment in Capitalism is life everlasting on earth as it was once described as heaven. There was no marketing tool left in the Christian tool belt to beat that could compete and so Capitalism became dominant with a far greater influence on the world than the religion of Jesus. Still, there were advantages to Christianity that entrepreneurs could not overlook.

At its most basic, Capitalism is the private ownership of the means of production. Historically, Capitalism developed incrementally from the Dark Ages through entrepreneurial Monks into 16th century Europe and it was perfected by the Austrian School and then in practice by America during the Industrial Revolution.

But once the United States Supreme Court reinterpreted the Constitution by recognizing that legal corporate structures should have the rights of people as God intended, faith took over and Capitalism was able to reform the pagan world into its current, rich Capitalist/Christian environment.

Capitalism has evolved to become God’s perfect creation on Earth as it gives life intrinsic meaning and allows humanity to satisfy its needs by striving constantly to earn more. The blessing of profit in God’s markets is God’s truth and market behavior reinforces a superior belief system, a map, an eternal operating budget, and a passion for excellence based on free will and free markets as God intended.

Capitalism is the ethical compass that enables the successful to seek and achieve the ultimate reward in life, the defeat of death and forever on earth.

“We must pretend to ourselves and to every one that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still.” J.M. Keynes

“The secret of a great success for which you are at a loss to account is a crime that has never been found out, because it was properly executed.” H Balzac

“Behind every great fortune lies a great crime.” H Balzac

“It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.” H. Ford

Capitalism has proven it can create wealth but it has also proven that it is incapable of distributing it.” Gohmpers

Does Capitalism work?

 

Milton Friedman – Greed, Socialism and Capitalism

 

 

Communism

The horror. Satan’s economic system. The wrong choice. Communist economics is Satan’s because it insures that those who practice it, workers, will never live as they dream, as entrepreneurs and capitalists, that they will live in a hell of their own making and die and go to Satan’s version of hell.

Communism was Satan’s trap. He ginned up the lazy, the limited, and the gullible, those incapable of accumulating the capital necessary for life everlasting. That was why Communism was rightly condemned as Satanic economics because it offered hope, but it caused hopelessness and it made life everlasting impossible to fund.

The Communist theology is the antithesis of Morgan Capitalist faith in achievement through productivity, hard work, great discipline, and the avoidance of bad investments, particularly charity, rewarded by everlasting life .

Communism was founded by Satanist Karl Marx who posited that it was the final stage in human society which will be achieved through a proletarian revolution. Communism in the Marxian sense refers to an oppression-free but unmotivated society where, to spread guilt, decisions on production and policies to follow are made democratically, allowing each member to participate in the decision-making process directly.

A centrally planned economy was plausible in agrarian societies of old but competition and victory are Old Testament values that are the essence of man’s purpose.

 

Corporatocracy

The form of government in a capitalist Autocracy. A corporation, a group of corporations, or government entities with private components controls the direction and governance of a nation.

In a corportocracy, any policy that improves the commercial environment benefits the country as a whole. The form it has taken in the United States provides regional governance through pools (profit sharing alliances or PSA’s) of local corporations that insure the best possible local business outcomes. Like smaller, regional corporations are represented in local politics by politicians, large, national corporations are represented in the Federal Government by Senators and Representatives employed directly by corporations.

Politicians are not elected, rather they contract with corporations to support programs favored by the corporation. In each political campaign, the candidate who sells the most subscriptions (in dollars) to corporations is elected for the prescribed two or six year term and it is up to these politicians to deliver the programs or lose the subscription in risk losing in subsequent campaigns.

Legislation is written and accepted first by corporate interests with certain social and community issues left to be addressed by informal and mostly economically challenged committees of interested citizens who recommended modifications to the legislation along with a fee. If citizens can’t cost-justify their issue (make it worthwhile for a politician to pursue it), their efforts are ignored.

Corporatism

A system of economic, political, and social organization where corporate groups join together in governing bodies in which the groups must negotiate to establish policies that satisfy the interests of the groups within the body. The Wharton Towns designed and developed by former President of the United States, Mark Rose, are early examples of corporatism.

 

Economics  

The advanced empirical study of money and human behavior as it relates to the relationship between ends and scarce resources with alternative uses. Scarcity is critical for it provides value when available resources are insufficient to satisfy all wants and needs. Without scarcity and alternative uses for available resources, there are no economic problems (a simplification).

Economics studies the choices and incentives in the pursuit of scarce resources. Once the science of economics advances from theory to proven theorem, providing the certainty required that allows for accurate corporate government actions. Berne T: For all its reputed effort to address scarcity, public discourse in economics is remarkably silent on social and community issues and how people’s lives are affected by economic decisions. (Hence the general lack of concern for the environment).

Once corporations were permitted the same rights and privileges that our Constitution once reserved for people (in conjunction with a corporation’s legal right as an ongoing (forever) concern) people, by definition, became second class citizens.

The primary benefit of this was that as ongoing concerns, corporations funded efforts to advance technology and medical breakthroughs, supported by the Morgan Church of the Almighty Dollar, that today allows people, like corporations, to be ongoing concerns as well.

“An economist is an expert who will know tomorrow why the things he predicted yesterday didn’t happen today.” L. Peter

National Socialism (Nazism)

A German political party and precursor to the American Entrepreneur Party. The Nazis, as they were called affectionately, incorporated elements from both left and right-wing politics but were mostly an alliance of the capitalist right. In response to the instability created by the Great Depression and the decimation of economies during and after World War I, the Nazis sought a third Way, a managed, capitalist oriented Autarky.

Among the key elements of Nazism was an effective racism designed to eliminate domestic economic terrorism and collectivism that hurt corporations. The Nazis developed eugenics to improve competitiveness as well as a virulent, anti-Semitism designed to remove greedy socialist middle managers from the woefully incompetent bureaurcracy and allow true German patriots to compete free in free markets.

There are so many reasons American business is indebted to the Nazis but Autarky and effective elimination of the anti-commerce forces of collectivism are the primary reasons.

Nazis were the first national leaders violently opposed to the wrong-headedness of economic and political liberalism that sought to redistribute wealth at a time when corporations were desperately competing to build value for their majority stockholders.

Neo-feudal

Decentralized sociopolitical local economy reminiscent of many pre-industrial societies in which weak autocrats attempt to control the wealth of the realm through reciprocal agreements with regional business leaders. In its most classic sense, feudalism refers to the Medieval European political system composed of a set of reciprocal legal and military obligations among the warrior nobility revolving around the three key concepts of lords, vassals, and fiefs.

Neo-feudalism is the model former President Mark Rose used to construct his successful Wharton Towns.

“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wicked of men will do the most wicked of things for the greatest good of everyone.” J.M. Keynes

State Capitalism

Commercial profit seeking economic activity undertaken by the State but allowing for some management of the production in a seemingly capitalist manner. A corruption of true Capitalism by insidious and envious Communist forces in order to make their enslaved workers believe that they are nominally socialist but primarily free market Capitalists  in order to create a quasi successful nation like America. While their people can be fooled, America will never be fooled again after the Liberal Left’s aborted overthrow of true free market American Capitalism early in the 21st Century.

State capitalism is characterized by significant commercial regulation of industry and the dominance of a significant number of state-owned business enterprises designed to thwart competition at every turn. Examples of State capitalism include Corporatized government agencies and States that own controlling shares of publicly traded corporations, effectively allowing Commisars to act like capitalist and majority shareholders. Oftentimes, for political reasons, the State claims to assert this control to better protect its citizens. That is a lie. Only free markets, unemcumbered by government, can satisfy citizens who strive for success and those who do not strive, should not be coddled.

What is the Joad Cycle

The Joad Cycle is a series of dystopian speculative fiction novels set in our America from 2032-2084 after a Constitutional Coup has brought to power an extreme Right Wing, Christian, Libertarian Entrepreneur who is the leader of the new Entrepreneur Party. In this America, business interests rule, government has been marginalized. and the poor and the middle class no longer exist, the result of a massive economic genocide. To survive, every citizen lives to create wealth and should living cost more than they can generate in value to the economy, they are executed. Mostly, this is an Anti-capitalist Love Story.

$$$ How to Read this Site $$$

This site is mostly fictional and it supports the novels, providing backstory and additional related short stories that take place within the world of the Joad Cycle.

The site offers a Blog and Journal from the perspective of one main character, the hero of the first book, The Golden Rule . This character, Bernie Rosenthal who is very liberal politically, works as Chief Financial Officer for U.S. Angs, a multinational multibillion dollar private corporation owned by Tom Gorman and Tom Morgan, the Toms, who represent ultra Conservative Koch brother types. Bernie is humbled by the tyrannical Toms during the day and finds a release journaling his job frustration. Meanwhile, Bernie's future self, Berne Thau, adds to the blog entries with his perspective, more than 30 years in the future, after money, greed, and the Right Wing revolution end the American Republic .

We are living in trying times. According to Berne Thau, they will get much more difficult.

Why this curmudgeon wrote this story

Every generation, parents tell their children that life was better back when they were young… and the children always scoff.

But now that I have qualified to pass judgment on that age-old warning, now that I’ve been both young and old, I have come to realize that the old have it right and children scoff at their peril though in the ways that American society has been taught to measures success, every generation since maybe the turn of the twentieth century anyway, has had it better.

But with age, and career experience, I have learned that those ways are deceptive and worse, they are wrong. Success is measured based on wealth, conveniences, and life expectancy issues when it should be evaluated on what we hope to be as individuals and what we become as people—the expectancy of life.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been successful enough. For most of my baby boomer life I was comfortable middle class interspersed with a few years of unfortunate decline towards impoverishment, never quite getting there before bootstrapping back to comfort.

For a time, I was a certified member of the 1%—in income though not in wealth. The 1% is a class of people who rule their part of the world and have a lot of confidence that somebody they know rules the rest of it. I wasn’t a one-percenter for many years, but it was a good life until my associations made me believe that I just didn’t want it anymore. I apologize to my family for what I had become and these novels are my penance.

People congratulated me for the success I’d earned as if those less and least successful earned that lack as well. And with the memory of a manufacturing facility in a small, rural, one-employer town in out-of-the-way Northern Maine near the Canadian border closed to improve a bottom line somewhere else, with an American town murdered for earnings per share, I signed off and began to write the The Joad Cycle.

In my research, I came to fear for my family that grew from the narrowest and shallowest possible family tree to three generations deep and two wide. My family is important and so I wrote these novels for them, for their future, for what I dread we have taken from them and will continue to take, long after we are dead.

I live in the Midwest and my friends are good people and I value them. They are conservative and most are Christians and somehow, we argue over unions as if union members aren’t patriotic Americans, too, and besides, what is to be gained by condemning workers in a country of workers. And we disagree on the poor? Social Safety Nets may not be working as well as they could (But how would we know if these Safety Nets are working? It is not as if some brave politician will stand up and precisely define what a win looks like in the freest, richest country in the history of history—and seriously, doesn’t free-form Capitalism deserve the bulk of the blame with its all-encompassing goal of creating winning humans and losing humans).

And discussions on life and death with my conservative friends, life at the very beginning and the very end, and guns and gods…forget about it. But unlike politicians and the media, we are friends so we work around the discomfort and the dislike for the greater good.

My friends are the current version of the salt of the earth and all of us abide by family values above all, even if we can’t agree on them. Good people like us accept a society where too many of our children are handled by strangers during the critical formative years. And in the twilight years too many parents and grandparents are handled by strangers until their money runs out, like sand in an hourglass, their lives extended only so far as Government security or private insurance will grant.

And when Americans finally expire after insufferable pain and embarrassment and to the sighs of sad but relieved loved ones, it reveals the immaturity of the vast majority of the American people who won’t resolve; once and for all, when God’s reason ends life and so they leave that to for-profit resolution. Can’t it just be in the fading twinkle of an ancient woman’s eyes?

But all of this pales to the legacy of GREED! Greed, that race for wealth that is ingrained in us all from television at a too early age that drives us to become economically viable so that with something extra in our paychecks at the end of the week, we can indulge ourselves with gifts, with palliatives, to relieve the pain and discomfort that we feel for doing what we must do to earn what wealth we cab. Greed is the satisfying of artificial and constant cravings.

And those who are considered the best of us, majority stockholders, officers of corporations, politicians, and celebrities all at the top of their respective food chains, they earn their way into the 1% and possessing this true wealth, they gift themselves truly extraordinary palliatives in order to compensate for something deeply unsatisfying within that was once more human, what they lost in the dog-eat-dog world that we all live in.

This is the world that we pass on to our children and our grandchildren. This world is what will own them someday like it owns us today. They are truly greed’s legacy. That too is the basis for my cautionary tale of America’s future, The Joad Cycle.

But I still idealize my youth. I remember what it felt like when I was a boy and so I wrote a grand love story, too.
