[Quote No.40960] Need Area: Money > General
"Inflationism, however, is not an isolated phenomenon. It is only one piece in the total framework of politico-economic and socio-philosophical ideas of our time. Just as the sound money policy of gold standard advocates went hand in hand with liberalism, free trade, capitalism and peace, so is inflationism part and parcel of imperialism, militarism, protectionism, statism and socialism." - Ludwig von Mises
[1881 – 1973], an Austrian-American economist, historian, philosopher, author, and classical liberal who had a significant influence on the modern free-market libertarian movement and the Austrian School of economics. Refer the website [ mises.org ].

"The riches of the rich are not the cause of the poverty of anybody; the process that makes some people rich is, on the contrary, the corollary of the process that improves many peoples want satisfaction.

"It was writers of this class [Romanticism] who introduced as literary figures the bloodsucking capitalist entrepreneur and the noble proletarian.

[Quote No.41061] Need Area: Money > General
"It is impossible to grasp the meaning of the idea of sound money if one does not realize that it was devised as an instrument for the protection of civil liberties against despotic inroads on the part of governments [that without it would print money to inflate away their debts. This would diminish the savings of the poor through depreciating the purchasing power of their money and so reduce their right to freedom, self-empowerment and affordable choices through increasing their wealth]. Ideologically it belongs in the same class with political constitutions and bills of rights." - Ludwig von Mises
[1881 – 1973], an Austrian-American economist, historian, philosopher, author, and classical liberal who had a significant influence on the modern free-market libertarian movement and the Austrian School of economics.

[Quote No.41110] Need Area: Money > General
"The essence of so-called war prosperity; it enriches some by what it takes from others. It is not rising wealth but a shifting of wealth and income... War prosperity is like the prosperity that an earthquake or a plague brings. The earthquake means good business for construction workers, and cholera improves the business of physicians, pharmacists, and undertakers; but no one has for that reason yet sought to celebrate earthquakes and cholera as stimulators of the productive forces in the general interest." - Ludwig von Mises

"The [big, paternalistic government] Welfare State with its methods of easy money [loose monetary policy - low interest rates], credit expansion [fiscal and trade deficits - government borrowing and money printing] and undisguised inflation [including financial repression where interest rates are kept below the real cost of living increases] continually takes bites out of all claims [including interest and welfare payments] payable in units of the nation’s legal tender [devaluation of the purchasing power of the currency].

[Quote No.41304] Need Area: Money > General
"[Free trade and] The Ricardian Law of Comparative Advantage: Even the most hostile critics of the Ricardian system have granted that at least David Ricardo made one vital contribution to economic thought and to the case for freedom of trade: the law of comparative advantage. In emphasizing the great importance of the voluntary interplay of the international division of labor, free traders of the 18th century, including Adam Smith, based their doctrines on the law of 'absolute advantage.' That is, countries should specialize in what they are best or most efficient at, and then exchange these products, for in that case the people of both countries will be better off [i.e. like individuals doing the work they get paid the most per hour for and buying the other things they need]. This is a relatively easy case to argue. It takes little persuasion to realize that the United States should not bother to grow bananas (or, rather, to put it in basic micro terms, that individuals and firms in the United States should not bother to do so), but rather produce something else (e.g., wheat, manufactured goods) and exchange them for bananas grown in Honduras. There are, after all, precious few banana growers in the US demanding a protective tariff. But what if the case is not that clear-cut, and American steel or semi-conductor firms are demanding such protection? The law of comparative advantage tackles such hard cases, and is therefore indispensable to the case for free trade. It shows that even if, for example, Country A is more efficient than Country B at producing both commodities X and Y, it will pay the citizens of Country A to specialize in producing X, which it is most best at producing, and buy all of commodity Y from Country B, which it is better at producing but does not have as great a comparative advantage as in making commodity X. In other words, each country should produce not just what it has an absolute advantage in making, but what it is most best at, or even least worst at, i.e. what it has a comparative advantage in producing. If, then, the government of Country A imposes a protective tariff on imports of commodity Y, and it forcibly maintains an industry producing that commodity, this special privilege will injure the consumers in Country A as well as obviously injuring the people in Country B. For Country A, as well as the rest of the world, loses the advantage of specializing in the production of what it is most best at, since many of its scarce resources are compulsorily and inefficiently tied up in the production of commodity Y. The law of comparative advantage highlights the important fact that a protective tariff in Country A wreaks injury on the efficient industries in that country, and the consumers in that country, as well as on Country B and the rest of the world. Another implication of the law of comparative advantage is that no country or region of the earth is going to be left out of the international division of labor under free trade. For the law means that even if a country is in such poor shape that it has no absolute advantage in producing anything, it still pays for its trading partners, the people of other countries, to allow it to produce what it is least worst at. In this way, the citizens of every country benefit from international trade. No country is too poor or inefficient to be left out of international trade, and everyone benefits from countries specializing in what they are most best or least bad at — in other words, in whatever they have a comparative advantage." - Murray N. Rothbard
(1926 – 1995), economist, economic historian, and libertarian political philosopher. [http://mises.org/daily/5989/The-Ricardian-Law-of-Comparative-Advantage ]

"I think in life success comes on many different levels, monetary success is just one of them, there are many other ways to be successful in life. If you have a happy family and are a good father, this is also a measure of success, if you can help other people this is also a measure of success. I think our society over rates monetary success and associates success with having a big house, having 3 cars, being able to go on holidays and live the good life when in fact, these are all relatively superficial symptoms of success." - Marc Faber

[Quote No.41959] Need Area: Money > General
"[Free market capitalism:] Every man, as long as he does not violate the laws of justice, is left perfectly free to pursue his own interest his own way, and to bring both his industry and capital into competition with those of any other man or order of men... It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner, but from regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities but of their advantages. Nobody but a beggar chooses to depend chiefly upon the benevolence of his fellow citizens... Every individual necessarily labors to render the annual revenue of society as great as he can. He generally neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. He intends only his own gain, and he is, in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was not part of his intention." - Adam Smith
(1723 – 1790), Scottish social philosopher and a pioneer of political economy. One of the key figures of the Scottish Enlightenment, Smith is the author of, among other things, 'An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations', 1776, which is usually abbreviated as 'The Wealth of Nations' and is considered his magnum opus and the first modern work of economics. It earned him an enormous reputation and would become one of the most influential works ever published. Smith is widely cited as the father of modern economics and capitalism and is still among the most influential thinkers in the field of economics today.

[Quote No.42158] Need Area: Money > General
"['Government charity' is an oxymoron. Government has no pre-existing supply of money. Before government can give to one, it must first take from another, through either taxes, debt, or inflation. Biblical charity is based on voluntary giving. 'Charity' is a form of 'Love' in Greek. They both translate as 'Agape'. The socialist-communist concept of forced redistribution or 'Robin Hood' taking from one and giving to another, is not a Christian concept. The Christian morality requires that God-given free-will, rather than force, coercion or fraud, is used.] Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." - Bible

"At the core, economics [especially whatever economic theory, at the time, is favoured by the political elite, as it is consistent with and supports their political aims, and is therefore, as explanation and justification, usually given the most coverage in the media] is about politics and about power [and freedom], and the question for the economists is whose power [and freedom] are you going to serve as an expert...Are you [as economists] going to serve [the power and freedom of] institutions of power or the [power and freedom of individual] people more generally? [The equally important question for the general public is, since economics is so important to justify political policies, legislation and actions and therefore materially influences each individual's freedom and living standards, surely it is vital to have a working knowledge of economic theories, including their drawbacks and advantages, in order to be able to understand and contribute to the economic and political debate and to make informed voting choices?]" - Robert Johnson

"[National Socialism, in the form of the German Nazi Party:] In the 12 years between 1933 and 1945, the Nazis massacred over 20 million people. Fueling their murderous evil was the philosophy of collectivism [socialism], so integral to Nazi society that it was inscribed around the edge of every Nazi Reichsmark coin. 'Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz' ('The community comes before the individual') concretizes the collectivist belief that individuals have no rights and that 'the greater good' is the only standard of value. Under such a system, man is not an end to himself [and thereby free], only a tool [a piece of property - a slave] to be sacrificed for the Führer, autocrat or ruling mob. Only capitalism regards man as a sovereign individual with an inalienable right to his own life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. Government recognition and protection of individual rights is the hallmark of a moral, peaceful, productive society." - Jonathan Hoenig

[Quote No.42559] Need Area: Money > General
"[Even confirmed communists, as the following quote shows, recognised soon after establishing communism in Russia that its philosophy and economic ideas were not capable of providing the abundance that the equality of labor, wages, need satisfaction and life they promised to the proletariat during the revolution, required. This socio-economic, political philosophy experiment in Russia has subsequently been studied by economists around the world for nearly a century and found to lack critical elements, found in free-market capitalism, needed to create innovation, productivity and profit, for example private property rights, incentive, competition and a system that prices resources as effectively and timely as a free market to allow business planners to allocate resources to their best function by seeing where demand needs more supply by sharply rising prices or supply needs to be less as demand and thereby prices are falling.] It is possible to build gigantic factories according to a ready-made Western pattern by bureaucratic command – although, to be sure, at triple the normal cost. But the farther you go, the more the economy runs into the problem of quality, which slips out of the hands of a bureaucracy like a shadow. The Soviet products are as though branded with the gray label of indifference. Under a nationalized economy, quality demands a democracy of producers and consumers, freedom of criticism and initiative – conditions incompatible with a totalitarian regime of fear, lies and flattery." - Leon Trotsky
(1879 – 1940), born Lev Davidovich Bronshtein, he was a Russian Marxist revolutionary and theorist, Soviet politician, and the founder and first leader of the Red Army. He joined the Bolsheviks immediately prior to the 1917 October Revolution, and eventually became a leader within the Party. During the early days of the Soviet Union, he served first as People's Commissar for Foreign Affairs and later as the founder and commander of the Red Army as People's Commissar of Military and Naval Affairs. He was a major figure in the Bolshevik victory in the Russian Civil War (1918–20). He was also among the first members of the Politburo. After leading a failed struggle of the Left Opposition against the policies and rise of Joseph Stalin in the 1920s and the increasing role of bureaucracy in the Soviet Union, Trotsky was successively removed from power, expelled from the Communist Party, deported from the Soviet Union and assassinated on Stalin's orders. An early advocate of Red Army intervention against European fascism, Trotsky also opposed Stalin's non-aggression pact with Adolf Hitler in the late 1930s. As the head of the Fourth International, Trotsky continued in exile to oppose the Stalinist bureaucracy in the Soviet Union, and was eventually assassinated in Mexico, by Ramón Mercader, a Spanish-born Soviet agent. Trotsky's ideas form the basis of Trotskyism, a major school of Marxist thought that is opposed to the theories of Stalinism. Quote from his work, ‘Revolution Betrayed’ (1936).

[Quote No.42583] Need Area: Money > General
"Economics is a study of cause-and-effect relationships in an economy. It's purpose is to discern the consequences of various ways of allocating resources which have alternative uses. It has nothing to say about philosophy or values, anymore than it has to say about music or literature." - Thomas Sowell
American writer and economist. Quote from his book, 'Basic Economics: A Citizen's Guide to the Economy'.

[Quote No.42656] Need Area: Money > General
"Today [discussing government deficits and rescue packages for the economy] we have become rather casual in our use of the word trillion. 'A trillion dollars' slips so easily off the tongue, but it is too big a number for most of us to even fathom. Estimates of the total stars in our galaxy run between 100 and 400 billion. A trillion barrels of oil would fuel the world for over 30 years. One trillion seconds is almost 32,000 years. The mind boggles." - John Mauldin
Quote from the article 'A Dysfunctional Nation', published in his newsletter, 'Thoughts From The Frontline', June 9, 2012.

[Quote No.42728] Need Area: Money > General
"The market economy is the social system of the division of labor under private ownership of the means of production. Everybody acts on his own behalf; but everybody’s actions aim at the satisfaction of other people's needs as well as at the satisfaction of his own. Everybody in acting serves his fellow citizens. Everybody, on the other hand, is served by his fellow citizens. Everybody is both a means and an end in himself; an ultimate end for himself and a means to other people in their endeavors to attain their own needs." - Ludwig von Mises
Quote from his book, 'Human Action' [1949].

[Quote No.42773] Need Area: Money > General
"...DO SKYSCRAPERS PREDICT? [Andrew] Lawrence (1999a) was apparently the first to make the claim that the construction of the world’s tallest building was correlated with impending financial crisis although the subject of the world’s tallest skyscrapers and their relation to economic crisis is also prominent in Grant (1996). Lawrence showed that in almost all cases the initiation of construction of a new record-breaking skyscraper preceded major financial corrections and turmoil in economic institutions. Generally, the skyscraper project is announced and construction is begun during the late phase of the boom in the business cycle; when the economy is growing and unemployment is low. This is then followed by a sharp downturn in financial markets, economic recession or depression, and significant increases in unemployment. The skyscraper is then completed during the early phase of the economic correction, unless that correction was revealed early enough to delay or scrap plans for construction. ...CANTILLON EFFECTS IN SKYSCRAPERS: Cantillon effects are named for their discoverer, Richard Cantillon, who is widely credited as the first economic theorist, and in particular, was the first to show that changes in the money supply and credit have important impacts on the economy by changing relative prices. Cantillon showed that an increase in the supply of money would cause economic expansion, but that ultimately the process would be self-reversing as prices would rise and imports would increase, sending money back out of the economy. Cantillon further showed that monetary inflation does not affect all prices equally or at the same time, but in sequences that depend on the spending behavior of money holders all along the channels of monetary flows. These ideas have been adopted and extended by Knut Wicksell, Ludwig von Mises [Austrian School economist], and F.A. Hayek [Nobel Prize winner] and more recently by McCulloch (1981) and Garrison (2001) ...Fortunately, there does seem to be a growing appreciation for the Austrian [School of Economics] theory of the business cycle [boom and bust], if not an accurate understanding of the theory itself. As Pesek (1999a) has noted, the causal factors relating skyscrapers to the business cycle share the 'basic tenet of Austrian economic theory.' The Austrian theory is based on the economics of the capital structure and the distinction between true interest rate signals which generate economic development and false interest-rate signals which generate business cycles. Understanding the giant skyscraper as a manifestation of the business cycle and thus understanding how price and interest rate signals can distort the structure of production in the economy into bad investments and improperly allocated labor might go a long way toward improving economists’ understanding of business cycles and their cures. Unfortunately, the theory is blind in the sense that it offers no way of knowing if the actual rate of interest is above or below the so-called natural rate and therefore it offers little in the way of exact prediction. It should be clear that despite its good record of predictions, the Skyscraper Index [refer wikipedia.org and Google search] is not recommended as a remedy for this deficiency, but simply as a good illustration of the strengths of the Austrian [School of Economics] theory of the business cycle." - Mark Thornton
a senior fellow at the Mises Institute. Quote from the article 'SKYSCRAPERS AND BUSINESS CYCLES' in 'THE QUARTERLY JOURNAL OF AUSTRIAN ECONOMICS', VOL. 8, NO. 1 (SPRING 2005). [http://mises.org/journals/qjae/pdf/qjae8_1_4.pdf ]

[Quote No.42775] Need Area: Money > General
"The major, critical difference between state-public welfare (sometimes called entitlements) and private welfare (sometimes called charity) is state welfare is not voluntary while private welfare is. The state, is only a social contract between the inhabitants of a geographic area to create an authority, at least in the United States of America, with their Declaration of Independence and Constitution, to protect the unalienable human rights to life and the pursuit of happiness through individual freedom of choice, namely to stop human predation on other humans, through force, coercion and fraud, when they are living and working together and the state authority, the government, breaks that convenant with the people when it forcefully and coercively takes in order to redistribute through state welfare while private welfare which is freely given respects that human right. Because of this libertarians, who staunchly support the unalienable human right to honest, peaceful individual freedom cannot condone that behavior, even if they agree wholeheartedly with helping those less fortunate and therefore support voluntary, private welfare. It should be noted private welfare and charity worked ever more successfully up until the turn of the twentieth century, when political parties saw the opportunity to politically gather votes and morally promise to try to equalise outcomes, rather than treatment and authority, through their potential tax-based power to force contributions and to give state welfare. The other significant reason against state welfare, rather than private welfare, is that state bureaucracies are notoriously expensive and inefficient so much of the coercively-taken taxes are wasted, meaning more is taken by political force than would have been needed to be given in a free market, for an equivalent result.

[Quote No.42778] Need Area: Money > General
"Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon in the sense that it is and can be produced only by a more rapid increase in the quantity of money than in output... A steady rate of monetary growth at a moderate level can provide a framework under which a country can have little inflation and much growth. It will not produce perfect stability; it will not produce heaven on earth; but it can make an important contribution to a stable economic society. [At his recommended low annual growth rate of about 3-4%, more or less - depending on that country’s sustainable, natural growth rate for its stage of industrial development, productivity growth, population growth and demographics - the money supply could still be backed by gold, which only increases at about 3% a year from mining. But the primary rationale for gold–backing is to limit irresponsible, politically-motivated government deficit spending and concomitant printing and a monetary rule of steady but limited increase in the money supply provides the same limit so long as it is not broken under government pressure to increase fiscal deficit spending by getting the Treasury to sell bonds-loans to the Federal Reserve (central bank) and them paying for them by ‘printing’ money or its digital equivalent. This limit to government power by limiting borrowing in this way to control inflation and boom-bust malinvestment is something most governments abhor so they bring out ‘naïve Keynesian’ economists to justify increasing government spending to increase aggregate demand once in a recession rather than realising that these rules would reduce their reckless, politically-motivated but dangerous political overspending and too low interest rates in the boom before the bust-recession and therefore the severity of the malinvestment and thereby the recessions’ corrective pain would be less and the economy’s growth smoother and easier to be profitably planned for by businesses and citizens.] " - Milton Friedman
(1912 – 2006), American economist, statistician, and author who taught at the University of Chicago for more than three decades. He was a recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. As a leader of the Chicago school of economics, he influenced the research agenda of the economics profession. A survey of economists ranked Friedman as the second most popular economist of the twentieth century behind John Maynard Keynes, and The Economist described him as 'the most influential economist of the second half of the 20th century...possibly of all of it.' Friedman's challenges to what he later called 'naive Keynesian' (as opposed to New Keynesian) theory began with his 1950s reinterpretation of the consumption function, and he became the main advocate opposing activist Keynesian government policies. In the late 1960s he described his own approach (along with all of mainstream economics) as using 'Keynesian language and apparatus' yet rejecting its 'initial' conclusions. During the 1960s he promoted an alternative macroeconomic policy known as 'monetarism'. He theorized there existed a 'natural' rate of unemployment, and argued that governments could increase employment above this rate (e.g., by increasing aggregate demand) only at the risk of causing inflation to accelerate. He argued that the Phillips curve was not stable and predicted what would come to be known as stagflation. Friedman argued that, given the existence of the Federal Reserve, a constant small expansion of the money supply was the only wise policy. Friedman was an economic adviser to conservative President Ronald Reagan. His political philosophy extolled the virtues of a free market economic system with minimal intervention. He once stated that his role in eliminating U.S. conscription was his proudest accomplishment, and his support for school choice led him to found The Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice. In his 1962 book 'Capitalism and Freedom', Friedman advocated policies such as a volunteer military, freely floating exchange rates, abolition of medical licenses, a negative income tax, and education vouchers. His ideas concerning monetary policy, taxation, privatization and deregulation influenced government policies, especially during the 1980s. His monetary theory influenced the Federal Reserve's response to the global financial crisis. Quote from ‘The Counter-Revolution in Monetary Theory’ (1970).

[Quote No.42790] Need Area: Money > General
"The twentieth century has been the age of [increasing government] socialism and interventionism. Schools and universities are government-funded and government-controlled institutions; hence, the most eminent appointments go either to socialists or interventionists [which in economics means they advocate Keynesian or Friedmanite Monetarist theories], while 'intransigent,' 'dogmatic,' or 'extremist' proponents of laissez-faire [free-market] capitalism [for example the Austrian School] are excluded or relegated to the fringes of academia.
