I went to Reno, you know, the Liberty Conference, awhile ago, and my objective was the same as the time I went to the Mises Institute Conference on Financial Markets on Las Vegas.
I want to compare notes.
This time I pay extra to get a special deal on close association with a expert in the field, on economics, right?
So I want to compare notes, to learn something, test my perspective competitively, they say pay more, and you can even ask questions of the speaker.
My daughter gave me more air time waiting at the bank lobby than the guy I paid to gain access in Reno.
I was given the bums rush in Reno, in, out, no questions, just a load of crap on how the solar panels and electric cars were subsidized in an otherwise free market - or some such nonsense.
The well paid speaker gave me no time.
My daughter asks: "What should I do to buy a car?"
I say save up your Federal Reserve Note Fraud tickets, if that is what you have to invest in, for now, and shop around, test driving the Leaf car from Nissan, the assumption here is that you will be able to get a steady job, and you will have a fuel bill, 400 whatever units per month, and you get to drive past the gas stations in a new car with a warrantee, and if you lose your job, the get the car, but if you keep the job, and if things go the way they are going, your investment cashing in as gas prices price everyone else out of the market.
Keep your eyes open, meanwhile, I can still taxi you, and you might stumble on a deal like we have with a gas powered car that has low mileage, from a little old lady who died and left here house and car to a trustee, who hires your mom to sell the house, and asks if anyone needs a good car for cheap.
If you don't buy new, and you don't have the warrantee, like your brother, buying cheap, a cop car sold at auction to a former cop car repair man with an inside deal, a fix up shop, and a steady stream of cop cars, then you get a cheap car, the gas bill, and if the transmission goes out, you are back to square one and you have already worked 6 months for nothing.
A risk, so you go back to go, in the monopoly game, but you get a bad card on the deck.
You don't get something for nothing, but the 400 you are handing each month to the Monopoly Oil companies is now about 400 per month being handed to the Monopoly Loan Shark people, and a lump sum handed over to the people making Electic Cars in Japan.
After 5 years, or so, whatever, you get the car, and Japanese cars are known for long service and good resale, but in 5 years what do you think will be the price of gasoline?
I did not have the time to go into further detail, we saw a Music shop, a new one, in town, and so we stole away some time to see what our small town has now to offer in the Music industry.
It was a sad story, and I continued narrating.
I was not able to do any narrating when I worked all the time.
Now I do.
How much does it cost when costs are passed onto the honest hard working people as a rule, not an exception?
I mention the California made electric car, but that is currently out of her league, unless she gets a very good job, and then you know, it takes money to make money.
When the kids are smarter than the well paid experts, I guess that is the definition of hope.
