A extrema expansão fiscal e monetária
interromperá a desaceleração global ou
será uma receita de desastre?
Medium 26 de Junho
Estamos experimentando um grande
experimento econômico. Governos e bancos
centrais nos Estados Unidos e na Europa
lançam pacotões de trilhões de dólares e de
euros para estimular suas economias após a
contração econômica devido ao bloqueio
econômico (lockdown). Essas políticas
salvarão a economia mundial ou são elas uma
receita para o desastre? Uma análise dos
fatos suscita sérias preocupações.

wirklich passiert und warum lief es schief?
Medium 16. Mai 2020
Das Runterfahren der Wirtschaft und die

What did really happen in 2008? Did
the great financial crisis appear by
accident? Or was the collapse
brought about by false policies? Is
deregulation to blame for the
meltdown? Or is the monetary policy
of the central banks to blame? What
occurred in the prelude to the crisis?
Why could policymakers not prevent
the crisis? Why were financial
market operators not on the alert?
This
series of four volumes answers
these questions.

Volumes I, II, and III cover the great
financial crisis of 2008 day by day
while Volume IV presents analyses,
backgrounders, and an outlook.
Volume I records the prelude of the
crisis, the period from January to
December of 2007.
Volume II investigates the path to the
highpoint of the crisis from January
to June 2008.
Volume III examines the climax
period from July 2008 to January
2009.
Volume IV provides a
comprehensive chronology of the
crisis from 2008 to 2011 and
analyzes its causes, the course of
events, and its consequences.
Anyone who wants to know what
really happened must
read these
books.

Beyond the State and Politics

New edition July 2018 revised and
expanded.
This book shows why the traditional
policies have not worked and why they
will even less so function in the future. As
the author explains, the answer is not
more of the old, but that we must
eliminate politics and the state. We must
do away with the conventional economic
and social policies. Not more welfare
state and government intervention are
the answer but less state and more free
capitalism.
The policy agenda of the modern
democracy asserts that government
could prevent and cure unemployment,
economic crises, recessions,
depressions, inflation, deflation, and
inequality and that the state could
provide education, healthcare, and social
security for all.
The promises of rising incomes and
employment dominate the political
campaigns. Yet politics has never
attained these assertions. In the time to
come, the system of party politics will
even less so fulfill its claims.
The new technologies contain the
solution of the problems they present.
While technological progress destroys
occupations, innovations make the
economy more productive. Not growth
and jobs are the key to the future but
higher productivity.

The "Debacle of Economic Stabilization Policies"
explains how the great economic eruptions
happen when the government and the central
bank do not allow the small economic fluctuations
to play out. The authorities hinder the return to a
balance when false incentives and distorted
market signals persist. When capital becomes
scarcer, the interest rate should rise to signal this
change. If, however, the central bank attempts to
pump more money into the systems and to lower
the interest rate, this policy will cover up the
capital shortage. Cheap credit insinuates a
profusion of funds that do not exist. Economic
policy claims to stabilize the economy and keep it
on its growth path. For that purpose, economic
policy is said to pursue the aims to fight inflation
and deflation, to prevent recessions and
depressions and to promote economic growth.
Yet, often, these policies themselves produce
what the policy-makers claim to prevent and to
cure.

"Feinde des Wohlstands" zeigt, was Kapitalismus
und Sozialismus, Interventionismus und
Wohlfahrtsstaat bedeuten. Es wird erklärt, welche
Gefahren davon drohen, wenn die Grundlagen
unseres Wohlstands durch falsche Vorstellungen
aufs Spiel gesetzt werden. Es gilt die
Verwirrungen aufzulösen, die von den Medien
verbreitet werden und in den Schulen die
Lehrpläne deformieren. Der Kapitalismus wird
nicht besser, wenn man ihn in Richtung zu mehr
Sozialismus umgestaltet. Um das
Wirtschaftssystem zu verbessern, muss es mehr
auf eine freie Marktwirtschaft hin ausgerichtet
werden. Es geht darum, den Kapitalismus
kapitalistischer zu machen. Die ersten drei Teile
behandeln wie Sozialismus, Interventionismus
und der Wohlfahrtsstaat den allgemeinen
Wohlstand und die individuelle Freiheit zerstören.
Der vierte Teil legt da, weshalb Staat und Politik
überflüssig und schädlich sind. Im Anhang finden
sich Quellenkommentar und eine ausführliche
Bibliografie.

O livrinho "Fundamentos do Anarco-Capitalismo"
explica porque a hora chegou de abandonar os
mitos sobre o Estado, a política e a economia. O
moderno sistema político-partidário não é nem
democrático nem benéfico para o povo. Os
parlamentos não são representativos.
O atual sistema monetário internacional não
promove a prosperidade. Para sair desses
enigmas, mais Estado e mais política não
ajudarão. Precisamos de uma sociedade livre e
de uma economia livre.
Um passo decisivo para alcançar esse objetivo é
acabar com as eleições políticas. A tecnologia
moderna permite a escolha de representantes por
seleção aleatória. Uma assembleia legislativa
cujos membros tomam posse por sorteio custaria
menos que um sistema eleitoral, seria mais
representativa e, nesse sentido, seria muito mais
democrática. Com o tempo de serviço limitado,
os representantes retornariam à sua vida civil
depois dois anos e a legislação estaria livre dos
males que acompanham o atual sistema de
partidos políticos e seus políticos, cujo objetivo
principal é o carreirismo e não a prosperidade do
povo.

Wirtschaftskrise: 2020 ist nicht 2008
Medium 28. Juni 2020

Der Ritt auf dem Rücken des Tigers geht
weiter. Bereits bevor es zur gegenwärtigen
Wirtschaftskrise aufgrund des Lockdowns
gekommen ist, hatte die Europäische
Zentralbank schon expansive geldpolitische
Maßnahmen angekündigt. Jetzt soll nochmal
nachgelegt werden. Was dabei herauskommt,
zeichnet sich schon ab. Zur Rezession dürfte,
über kurz oder lang, noch die Preisinflation
dazu kommen. Statt einer „Stagflation light“
steht eine „Stagflation Plus“ an, eine
Konstellation, für die man in den 1970er Jahren
den Ausdruck „slumpflation“ geprägt hatte,
wonach ein starker Wirtschaftseinbruch („slump
“) zusammen mit einer Preisinflation auftritt.

Coronavirus: The Economic
Consequences of a Failed Response
Medium March 16, 2020
I have nothing to say about the fatality of the
Coronavirus. I have something to say about the
economic consequences of the virus outbreak
and the response to it.
Whatever the death rate from the coronavirus
may be, the reaction to the threat is even more
deadly. If the present economic blockade will
go on, we will soon have no longer the means
to provide basic supplies. Without transport, we
will run out of food. Essential medicines will no
longer be available. This is how a containment
strategy works: ailment cured, patient dead.

Kapitalismus Ohne Wenn und Aber“ ist eine
radikale Fürsprache zugunsten eines freien
Kapitalismus. Die Grundthese lautet, dass der
Rückzug des Staates und das Ende der Politik
den Weg zu Wohlstand und Freiheit eröffnen.
Das gegenwärtige politische und wirtschaftliche
System ist unfähig, die Zukunft zu meistern. Die
heute vorherrschende sozialdemokratische
Ideologie ist auf Beschäftigung und Umverteilung
ausgerichtet. Worauf es jedoch ankommt, ist die
Produktivität.
Das 21. Jahrhundert wird jenen Ländern gehören,
die dem Sozialismus, Demokratismus und
Staatskapitalismus den Rücken kehren und sich
entschieden in Richtung auf einen Kapitalismus
frei von Staat und Politik zubewegen.
Warum das so ist, zeigt dieses Buch.

"How Capitalism Creates Wealth & Promotes
Prosperity" explains how capitalism brings
freedom and prosperity, and more capitalism
leads to more freedom and prosperity. Yet most
countries move the other way. Governments try to
control, organize, and tame capitalism as much
as they can. Many people believe that the best
economic system is the welfare state. Yet what
they get is less well-being, less prosperity, and
less freedom. The anti-capitalist mentality
demands a high price. Who pays the bill is the
common man. Most of the ailments that
politicians, the media, and the leftist in academia
diagnose are not the result of capitalism but its
lack. The cure to poverty is not less but more
capitalism. The cure for environmental problems
is not more regulation but better property rights.
Private education would not only be much
cheaper than the present system but also more
creative and much better tuned to the needs of
the student. The social-democratic era is coming
to its end. The 21st century will belong to those
countries that embrace radical capitalism.
Instead of making capitalism more socialist, we
need a more capitalist capitalism. Free
capitalism together with the drastic reduction of
the state and the abolishment of politics would do
away with the financial burdens that afflict the
modern citizen. Not state intervention in
economic life leads to prosperity. The path to
affluence is the withdrawal of the state and the
end of politics. The new millennium will belong to
those societies that discard the administrative
state and move towards a capitalism that is free
of the state and of politics. This booklet is based
on the comprehensive monograph "Beyond the
State and Politics. Capitalism for the New
Millennium."

This new enlarged and revised edition July 2018
of "
Principles of Anarcho-Capitalism and
Demarchy" is based on excerpts from "Beyond
the State and Politics. Capitalism for the New
Millennium" (KDP 2018)
‘Anarcho-capitalism’ is the name of a
governance that has property, freedom, and non-
aggression as its first principles.
Classical liberalism put the property into the
center of its system of governance. Yet the
classical liberals were not strict enough in
holding up the barrier against the erosion of the
property rights.
A political order of freedom requires a society
with a minimum of state.
Yet anarchism in the sense of no authoritative
force does not mean that order would not exist.
According to the ideal of the liberal order, there
will be a legal and a social order in place - only
that it will be private.
Anarcho-capitalism demands private institutions
that take care of internal and external security.
Anarcho-capitalism does not promote anarchy
but the transformation of the state as a public
institution into a private legal order.
Taking away power from the state is a moral
necessity in the face of the prospect that the new
technologies would put such an immense
arsenal of surveillance and control into the hands
of the state that a future totalitarian regime could
exert complete control over the individual and
produce the uttermost terror. Therefore, to
establish an anarcho-capitalist order is a matter
of human dignity.
What needs to be done as practical steps to
establish a new order of liberty is a change of
the system of selection of the representatives
through a lottery, called 'demarchy' or sortition.
This form of governance selects the members of
the legislature as a random sample from a pool
of candidates formed by the citizens of a
community. A stateless society would then
require that this General Assembly hires a
private government management company to
run the business of government under the
supervision of the legislature.

How Gullible Politicians Promoted the
Destruction of the Global Economy and
Threw Us into the Abyss of Serfdom
Medium March 31, 2020

Anyone with some basic knowledge in
mathematical modeling who had taken a look
at the structure of the “Imperial College”-model
would have noted the faults of this approach
and its exaggerations. The model’s prognosis
that the United Kingdom would have to count
with more than half a million deaths and a
complete overload of its health system
reversed the British government’s earlier
decision to use prudential surveillance and
specifically targeted intervention and to shift to
the full-control strategy, which required massive
intervention into the public and private life of the
nation. The leaders of other countries that were
somewhat still in doubt jumped on the
bandwagon and the march into a tyrannical
State was programmed.

Modern Monetary Theory is no Magic Money
Tree
Medium May 20, 2019

Old wine in new bottles is a recurring
phenomenon in economics, particularly if it is
the bad wine of economic ideas that failed in
the past. Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is
neither modern nor a theory — it is the attempt
to sell something as new which is spoiled and
rotten.
While promising to cure all kinds of economic
woes, MMT is the poisonous elixir that will ruin
those who take it as it has happened before.

"Enemies of Prosperity" explains the failure of
socialism, interventionism, and the welfare
state. Internationally renowned economist
Antony Mueller analyses why socialism brings
misery, the suppression of freedom, and a
broken economy. Interventionism comes along
with political populism and results in state
capitalism and the growth of government.
People like to praise this mixed system as a
welfare state, but they fail to recognize that this
politics does not lead to the hoped-for Eldorado
but is the path to stagnation. The welfare state
produces most of the social ailments, which the
government claims to heal. The more generous
the social assistance, the larger the number of
social welfare recipients, and the higher the
burden, the more the shadow economy will
flourish. When the tax code gets more
complicated, tax evasion rises. The more
access to public healthcare and medication, the
sicker people become. The higher the
percentage of a populational cohort that attends
high schools and colleges, the lower the
educational level. Interventionism discourages
innovation and leads to a waste of resources
due to the cost of regulation and the
misallocation brought about by the state
intervention. The results are perpetual fiscal and
monetary crises.
