Specialization makes us Wealthier than the Kings and Emperors of Antiquity

“Maybe you would benefit to learn about how to grow your own food rather than being grateful you don’t have to think about it.”

 

One of the miracles of the modern economy is that of specialization. One is able to focus on working and producing in the field one is most competent. When millions of people are able to freely choose which field to specialize in, the result is the creation of wealth of monumental proportions. The result of the vast reduction of poverty and the stratospherical rise in standards of living as goods and services become cheap and affordable. Competition pushes down price and elevates quality. The primary benefactor of this magnificent phenomenon is the poor and destitute.

 

It is a blessing that we don’t have to grow our own food, sew our own clothes, chop wood to heat our own homes, and construct our own homes. Rather we are now able to work in a field of our choosing and with the value we earn, AKA currency, purchase the goods/services that are the expertise of others. This is a system that has produced a civilization that towers above all others of wealth, comfort, and leisure.

 

The beautiful and ironic thing is we now have so much leisure that we can afford to spend time criticizing the very system that has gifted us all of these miracles. We can choose to grow food because it teaches kids valuable skills about farming and where food comes from, rather than being forced to do so lest we starve. We can choose to sew our own clothes because it teaches kids valuable lessons about appreciating clothing and learning to mend torn clothing to save currency, rather than being forced to do so lest we go naked. We can choose to chop wood to supplement standard indoor heating and enjoy the therapeutic benefits of exercise, rather than being forced to do so lest we freeze. We can learn how to make additions on our homes because it saves currency and teaches kids about being a handyman, rather than being forced to do so lest we lack a shelter.

 

We have the choice to be self sufficient rather than being compelled to do so in order to survive. That is the miracle of the modern industrialized economy. The comfort and wealth we daily enjoy and take for granted would make the kings and emperors of antiquity green with envy.

Car Accident and the Broken Window Fallacy

My friend got into a car accident. Is this good for the economy? Is he stimulating the car manufacturing sector? Should he thank the person who totaled his car? This is a clear example of the broken window fallacy and the principle of the seen versus the unseen. Wealth has clearly been destroyed. The resources and money that he would have used to further his business or to satisfy the basic needs of his family have been forcefully diverted towards more pressing matters such as buying a new car. He is worse off because he used his scarce resources to return to the status quo.

 

The broken window fallacy is the deceptive tool used by the State to reinforce the illusion that its influence is that of wealth creation and prosperity. The parasite always seeks to continue its predation by obfuscating its true nature and intentions. For if the host came to realize the chicanery that is being perpetrated it would slough off the parasite without hesitation and with scarcely any effort expended. Vacate the State!

Respect for Universal Law is the Mark of Civilization

The laws of economics and morality are set. They are not to be molded or shaped, only discovered. The marketplace does not bode well for those who choose to make up their own rules. In a world of clear economic laws, there will always be winners and losers. This is to the benefit of us all.

Keynesian Economics is a Puerile Philosophy

A lack of consideration for the future is what distinguishes Keynesian economics. Spend, consume, and become indebted because the day of reckoning and the pain of reality can always be pushed to future generations to deal with. Kenyesians are like children in that they do not consider the conservation of scarce resources and consume into indebtedness even when funds are no longer available.

 

This is in striking contrast to most businesses that must obey Economic law. Such businesses cannot continue to operate at a loss without immense suffering. The painful reality eventually reveals all unsustainable practices.

 

In the long run we are all dead.

The Cycle of Life and the Cacophony of Statism

The circle of life as it relates to nature (dead plant matter), business, and the economy is such that resources are always conserved and can never be destroyed. In the natural world there is a clear cycle of birth, growth, death, and birth. There is no waste. All resources are conserved. Even in death resources go to support new life.

 

As it is in the natural world so to it is in the economic world. Businesses are born, grow, perish, and new businesses are born. It takes a vast amount of resources to start a new business and attempt to provide value. Through their patronage or lack thereof only the consumers can decide if the market is well served by this new business. If the market rejects it then it is by definition an inefficient allocation of scarce resources and its best value to the market is in death. This frees up those scarce resources to be used by other intrepid and bold entrepreneurs to try their hand at serving the market.

 

This natural process can be interfered and meddled with only when coercion and force is introduced into this magnificently functioning symphony i.e. the State. At this point it becomes a cacophony of zombie undead institutions, artificially propped up and unnaturally maintained. Reality can be staved off only for so long. To believe resources are not scarce does not make them so. Statism is a self-destructive ideology, from whose ashes a wonder will emerge of epic proportions that will catapult human progress to the stratosphere and beyond. I look to the future with bright and hopeful eyes at what magnificent splendor awaits us.
