Voluntarism - The Non-Violence Principle


Of all the ways to accomplish a goal, every one of them fits into one of two categories: to achieve by violent means, or to achieve by voluntary means.

Inflation And The Future Of Money


The most basic and fundamental rule of economics would probably be the law of supply and demand. If there is less of something, it will cost more to acquire. And if there is more of something, it will cost less to acquire. For example, the Mona Lisa is worth a fortune because there is only one original. If someone, somehow, created a perfect duplicate of the original Mona Lisa so that there were two originals in existence, what would happen to the value of the first? It would drop by 50%, with the new Mona Lisa acquiring 50% of its value.

Well, what happens when a monetary supply, such as dollar bills, is inflated by 100%? There are twice as many dollar bills in existence (twice the supply), so the value (purchasing power) of the dollar bill gets cut in half. Except, it doesn't take a lot of work to print up as many zeros as you need.
