Two Must Reads

August 5, 2009 by

B281_T.jpgIn his book, Capital and Production, Richard von Strigl clearly shows that an advanced economy exists due to two social funds: the subsistence fund and the renewal fund. Neither of which is the product of printing presses.

B406_T.jpgFor those wanting to show that redistribution (i.e. soaking the rich to benefit everyone else) is an impossibility, Bertrand de Jouvenel’s book, The Ethics of Redistribution, contains an appendix with a sound refutation. Of course, times and places change. Regardless, to my knowledge, the bulge in the wealth distribution curve is always to the left.

You would be right were it not for the fact that once I toss a couple trillion pieces of paper over the economy, real wealth instantly doubles. The paper has a special Wealth-Increasing Effect, what economists call WIE. I’m surprised you don’t know this.

I hope that you’re joking David since those trillion pieces of paper have debased value leading to higher costs.

I’m sure it was sarcasm. How do you pronounce WIE?
