"Taxation is increasingly not just an internal European issue but a worldwide one. In a global world an effective tax cartel will have to be international; there is little benefit for the European governments in stamping out tax competition within the borders of the Union if there are still low-tax jurisdictions elsewhere."--Source: R. Teather, blog.mises.org: Praise Be to Tax Competition!
"If the Reagan administration has botched the domestic economy, even in terms of its own goals, how has it done in foreign economic affairs? As we might expect, its foreign economic policy has been the exact opposite of its proclaimed devotion to free trade and free markets. In the first place, Adam Smith ties and Bastiat to the contrary notwithstanding, the Reagan administration has been the most belligerent and nationalistic since Herbert Hoover. Tariffs and import quotas have been repeatedly raised, and Japan has been treated as a leper and repeatedly denounced for the crime of selling high quality products at low prices to the delighted American consumer."--Source: M. Rothbard, blog.mises.org: The Myths of Reaganomics
- Boston College Wealth Transfer Microsimulation Model (WTMM):
".. based on data on the amount and distribution of wealth from the Survey of Consumer Finances, sponsored by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, mortality rates based on data from the Center on Disease Control and the Center on Vital Statistics, life cycle savings rates estimated from the Survey of Consumer Finances, and historical patterns of the distributions of estates based on IRS estate tax data."
- Patricia Cohen, NYTimes, 7/11/07:
"..in recent months, economists have engaged in an impassioned debate over the way their specialty is taught in universities around the country, and practiced in Washington, questioning the professions most cherished ideas about not interfering in the economy....[e.g.] 'There is much too much ideology', [according to] Alan S. Blinder, a professor at Princeton and a former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve Board. 'Economics', he added, is 'often a triumph of theory over fact' ..[while] as many as 30 million to 40 million Americans could lose their jobs to lower-paid workers abroad. Just by raising doubts about the unmitigated benefits of free trade, he made headlines..: 'What I've learned is anyone who says anything even obliquely that sounds hostile to free trade is treated as an apostate,' Mr. Blinder said."

Book III, Part I, Sec. I). What counts, is the rejection of metaphysical first causes which results in the setting free of the 'plain, historical method' of experience, observation, and experiment." - Dictionary of the History of Ideas

'Max Planck was a devoted and persistent adherent of Christianity from early life to death, but he was very tolerant towards alternate views and religions, and so was discontented with the church organizations' demands for unquestioning belief.¶The God in which Max Planck believed was an almighty, all-knowing, benevolent but unintelligible God that permeated everything, manifest by symbols, including physical laws. His view may have been motivated by an opposition like Einstein's and Schrödinger's against the positivist, statistical subjective quantum mechanics universe of Bohr, Heisenberg and others. Planck was interested in truth and Universe beyond observation, and objected to atheism as an obsession with symbols.'wiki

This represents an increase of almost 70% over the Pentagon's 2001 budget of $316bn, and that's without factoring in 'supplementary' requests to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as the president's global war on terror. Add in those soaring sums and military spending has more than doubled in the Bush era. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, since 2001, funding for 'defence and related programmes... has jumped at an annual average rate of 8%... four times faster than the average rate of growth for social security, Medicare, and Medicaid (2%), and 27 times faster than the average rate for growth for domestic discretionary programmes (0.3%).'

"Food demand is boosted by biofuel production. Half of the increase in global corn consumption in 2007 was related to ethanol production, and the recent U.S. Energy Bill will ensure continued increases in demand from this source. This has already led to some spillovers on prices of other food commodities through higher feed costs, crop substitution, and demand substitution, and further spillovers are likely."--IMF: Commodity Price Moves and the Global Economic Slowdown, By Thomas Helbling and Valerie Mercer Blackman, IMF Research Department,March 20, 2008

"Behind [such guidelines, below, by R.G. Sproul*] lies a liberal philosophy of education, where the responsibility of educators is to elevate students' ability to think, not hand them correct opinions."
* "The function of the university is to seek and transmit knowledge and to train students in the processes whereby truth is to be made known. To convert, or make converts, is alien and hostile to this dispassionate duty...It therefore takes great care in the appointment of its teachers; it must take corresponding care with respect to others who wish to speak in its name. ¶ The University respects personal belief as the private concern of the individual. It equally respects the constitutional rights of the citizen. It insists only that its members, as individuals and as citizens, shall likewise always respect and not exploit, their University connections."--Source: via Richard C.

The Mind of God, The Scientific Basis for a Rational World, by Paul Davies
"The image of God 'as a sort of pyrotechnic engineer, lighting the blue touch-paper to ignite the big bang, and then sitting back to watch the show' is then juxtaposed with another popular image of God as 'the perfect watchmaker, a sort of cosmic engineer, who designs and constructs a vast and elaborate mechanism and then sets it going.' The question, says Mr. Davies, is whether God simply constructed the machine and left it to look after itself, or whether He is obliged to occasionally wind it up and keep it going."

"..That Prozac and even stronger drugs would be in our water was predicted by the late novelist Walker Percy. His last work, The Thanatos Syndrome, was published in 1987, just before Prozac arrived on the scene. In the novel Dr. More, a Louisiana psychiatrist, notices that his patients have suddenly become vacant and indifferent. Their anxieties have been removed but so have their passions and foibles and eccentricities--all that, according to Percy, makes us human. Dr. More eventually uncovers a government-industrial conspiracy, in which 'Heavy Sodium' is being put in the drinking water. The masterminds of the Heavy Sodium plot point to its impressive outcomes: reduced drug abuse and crime, improved 'social welfare.' Unfortunately there are those pesky side effects--loss of language skills, sexual problems, child abuse, numbness...¶But even Percy wouldn't have predicted the staggering numbers reported recently. He was just writing about one Louisiana parish, not a national phenomenon.."--Source: Charles Barber, The Nation Magazine, "Drugged-Up Nation", 6/12/08
