Aguilar defeats the socialist Montagne!

Mike Montagne has been on the Daily Paul Forum for months trying to convince libertarians to become socialists.

Montagne observed that libertarians are generally opposed to the Fed, but that many of them are not exactly sure why.

So, in a rather bold manuever, Montagne told them that the reason for their opposition was because the Fed is "privately controlled," unlike other central banks (such as in Zimbabwe) which are directly controlled by the president. He proposes instead to print paper money and spend it directly into the economy, similar to the way the Continental Congress financed the Revolutionary War.

In another bold manuever, Montagne re-defined the word "inflation" to only apply to the Fed buying T-bills and not to them printing paper money and spending it directly into the economy, which is the essence of the Debt Virus Theory.

Of course, the real reason that libertarians oppose the Fed is because they prefer free banking to a central bank.

And, of course, anybody with any background in economics would know that printing paper money and spending it directly into the economy is inflationary, by the usual definition of the term.

On 23 June 08, Victor Aguilar posted a link to his paper, Review of Montagne's Mathematically Perfected Economy (www.axiomaticeconomics.com/perfected_economy/php) on Montagne's website at http://www.perfecteconomy.com/f/viewforum.php?f=14&sid=5ae5e... Since then, the usually verbose Montagne has been conspicuously silent.

Let's all go to Montagne's forum and rub it in! When they see their leaders in disarray, many young socialists may decide to become libertarians instead.

And, when a socialist appears on the Daily Paul peddling his Debt Virus Theory, let's shout him down with the concluding line from Aguilar's rebuttal:

The Debt Virus Theory is not worth a Continental!

Montagne defends his theory!!!!!

Well, sort of.

Let's all go to http://www.perfecteconomy.com/f/viewforum.php?f=14&sid=5ae5e... and rub his face in the mud while he's down.


Shaka, you so crazy! www.axiomaticeconomics.com


I don't see any reponse from Montagne whatsoever...

I was trying to rub it in,

that Montagne's silence indicates that he is unable to respond to Aguilar's critique.

Also, since HoldYourFire is a new user and this is his first post, it is possible that he is Montagne. Montagne has traditionally associated himself with Lew Rockwell, so it makes sense that his "defense" amounts to invoking this relationship.

Unfortunately I skipped the previous Mathematically Perfected Economy threads for lack of understanding for the concept.

SSG263, where are you?

The socialists scatter before Aguilar like leaves before a leaf blower.

No, not in heaven either

Sorry. Maybe ant colonies though?

Should we listen to a mathematician?

I know that many people on the Daily Paul are opposed to Victor Aguilar because they do not think that a knowledge of mathematics is useful.

Well, that is just not true!

For example, consider this true story:

An Indian chief had three wives, each of whom was pregnant.
The first gave birth to a boy. The chief was so elated he built her a teepee made of deer hide.

A few days later, the second gave birth, also to a boy. The chief was very happy so he built her a teepee made of antelope hide.

The third wife gave birth a few days later, but the chief kept the details a secret. He built this one a two story teepee, made out of hippopotamus hide. The chief then challenged the tribe to guess what had occurred. Many tried, unsuccessfully. Finally, one young brave declared that the third wife had given birth to twin boys.

"Correct," said the chief. "How did you figure it out?"

The warrior answered, "It's elementary. The value of the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides."
