The spiral of interventions

Well now we see another template example of interventions.

Argentina, has obviously left the area of markets due to the “politics” of Mrs Kirchner and her spouse. In a side-note
of the newspaper of my wife I found: Inflation 25% and official course between Peso and $. And what has happened before.

It started with good running exports and higher as usual prices for the exported goods. So far so normal, then comes the Kirchners and what did they do?
They spend this money on welfare (and if there is but one way to get money burned faster, really burn it). This has bought here enough votes (yes the merits of democracy) to
get re-elected. and it has come as it always comes.

The prices for the export goods are falling and she does not have enough money for their “welfare” operations. Well one might think well one must cut them back. That’s normal thinking, but not the
Deledefs way, and so they make more debts (one just can say as usual) and started to make restrictions on free trade. Well if you mess with the markets the only answer there is appears, the prices start
raising. And indeed even the stupid newspaper of my wife at least has to “admit” that inflation is beyond 25%. 25% means in a little over 3 years your property halfs in money value. You can bet the only things raising as fast as inflation are always the all-day-needed goods. And so the poor start paying the bill immediately.

Now the people act logically and try to get rid of the Peso and that means they buy other currencies, and this get the next reaction. Controls on the money export/exchange and indeed this is what Frau Kirchner and the Poligangsters did, they “forbid” exchanging into $ and now $ are scarce and a scarce thing does what? Exactly it raised in Price, now the official exchange rate and the “paid” exchange rate differ around 40%.
Very “appealing”, the members of the parliament (probably of Mrs Kirchners party), do what? They buy more Dollars and they can, so much to “equality” before the law

So the end is coming, and the interventions gets more and more by the hour. People which have gained at least some wealth are not expropriated by the inflation initiated by interventions of the state. The sucker spiral turns faster. I guess within the next 5 years Argentina will fall back below 3rd world level. So dear Argentines, say “thank you” to your deledefs. And bite yourself because of your stupidity.

Why I like the Internet

My daily bread is computer programming, so maybe this explains it in just a few words 😉

Anyway what I live about the Internet is it’s voluntariness. Agreed some must use the Internet. Indeed here in Germany companies are forced to use
it for their tax declaration, but I think most are visiting is because they want. And what I like especially is that there is not state there.
Yes I know the servers must stand in some state. But that’s not the point, there are not those who rule and those who are ruled.
And it’s as near to a free market as one can think.

I just ask you my (roughly 200 readers) a day. Can I force you to visit my pages? The simple answer is no. In a way you are free to
spend your time here or elsewhere, and I’m free to write some entries may they be as stupid as one can imagine or not.

As everyone I have my preferences and I’ve to admit some of the comics I’m reading regularly just amazes me. I just pick one I do not remember how I found it, but I like it. I even liked it so much that I bough the printed comic. I got it from the
US. How should I ever have learned that this thing could be of interest of me without Internet?

I can visit sited of liberals, communists, socialists and whatever. No one can know wherre my browser lead me or command me not to go wherever I like. This is what I understand under freedom.
The freedom of choice, the freedom of discrimination. The freedom to decide by myself what I will see and what I won’t. Indeed I’m very happy that one day
human invention spirit came up with the question: Can I connect two computers?

They could and now you in maybe the US? Australia or wherever can read (if you like) what this “stupid” german writes here? Isn’t freedom great?

Another brick in the wall

Now again an example of positive or negative discrimination. This times it comes from Röttgen minister for the environment.
He will ban all electrical things which are not under the best 10% in energy consumption.

Well so you probably have to buy the most expensive versions of a product. It’s typical, the politicians decide what is good for us.
and the costs are irrelevant.

But hey ho if it comes to himself he spends big. According to this His bureau will cost more than 4.5 millions more than planned. Now that’s really “nice”….

Negative and positive discrimination

Well let us assume you’re looking for a new car. You have your ideas about how your car should work or look.
Fortunatly we can choose among quite a few car sellers. Now let’s conclude you like a car for up to 7 people
not too, tall. Fine there are e.g Sharan and Galaxy here in Germany. Well in the past this was the same car just
branded differently. Now assume you find a Galaxy for 25 000 EUR and a Sharan for 25 000. Now you choose
Sharan. Be cautius if car buying would be like anti-discrimination laws. Ford could sue you. Simple reason you have discriminated against Ford
while you a) don’t like the color b) don’t like the sales person c) because the Ford was sliver instead of yellow

or whatever.

What would you tell Ford? Well if you are moderate you’d say: “Mind your own business”. With high probability you’d say. “Go to ….”

Now let’s change this so person searching for a job. They are both the same age, the have the same grade, hell they even have the same marks.
But one is as handsome a guy could be the other a girl at least that handsome. Your shop runs with 20-30 year old Nerds, which are full of Testerone.
Whom would you “choose”. Well bad decision. You either discriminate the handsome guy or even worse you discriminate because of “gender”. So what would
you tell the bureaucrats?

Well you better find a sound excuse for your choice. If not you may in for around before the court.

Well how do we make choices? Sometimes they are based on figures, sometimes they are a gut feeling. We simply do not know. But if you make an educated choice for a car.
everyone agrees it’s your business, if you make an educated guess with whom you like to work together, well be assured, someone may object and start crying: “Discrimination”
