Sanity Zone 5-7-2016 Make Amurica Grate Agin

We should absolutely curb international free trade. As a practicing economist, I study stupid, as in stupid policies that impede progress and growth. I am convinced after years of active examination that free trade harms the most vulnerable of us - the incompetent. If we truly live in a society that prizes social justice and fairness, it is appalling that we consistently and relentlessly create policies and forge international agreements that harm those who are unwilling to be economically relevant....

Why.

If you are going to be successful at anything in life, you must answer why you are doing what you are doing. "What", while important, is not motivating. "How", again, critical to success, but it's not enough. If you have no unifying vision of why you do what you do, there will be no commitment, no sacrifice, no struggle, and ultimately, no success.

For 5 years, there has been no "why". Before 2009, the "why" was evident. Why...

REFUND

Posted 12-07-2014 at 02:41 PM by xan

The State of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans provide subsidies and direct payments to the Saints organization that require issuance of debt instruments and interest payments.
