"no bank or bitcoin-emitter can be as public-minded as a government"?? Hahaha.. is that a joke? The government is hardly "public-minded." The government is just self-interested as any other entity plus they have a monopoly on violent force..
They will just stop working or never become CEOs.. or start their own companies instead and get paid in equity.. it would be devastatingly stupid to cap CEO pay.
If you haven't, you should read Isaiah Berlin's "Two Concepts of Liberty." He lays the case out for liberty from government interference extremely well.
"Here I encounter the most popular fallacy of our times. It is not considered sufficient that the law should be just; it must be philanthropic. Nor is it sufficient that the law should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive use of his faculties for physical, intellectual, and moral self-improvement. Instead, it is demanded that the law should directly extend welfare, education, and morality throughout the nation." Frederic Bastiat
Here is my recommendation. If you want a party of Justice focus on making the law just and avoid making it philanthropic. You'll never have both.
Round-up isn't pesticide its herbicide.. not be pedantic but it kind of a big difference.
OK.. in the real world name examples where "predatory" pricing has been effective.. go ahead.. start now..
And then.. someone new enters the market.. and consumers got great deals on the cars at the expense of the "Evil Car Corporation"
That worked really well with Rare Earth Metals..
I hate it when countries make stuff for us for free or below cost. Maybe we should punish them buy sending them some free/discounted stuff. I'm sure that will teach them a lesson they won't soon forget.
I just thought I would point out by this criteria, Jimmy Carter would also be a "President of note"
Note the GAO says it will save the GOVERNMENT billions of dollars. Ask yourself.. how is that possible?
Here is how it is possible. The GAO is projecting that the dollar coins will be stored in jars -- exactly because they are undesirable.
So here is how it makes the government money. Treasury creates coin. The treasury deposits coin with federal reserve effectively buying coin for $1 (treasury makes 98 cent profit or so), Coin is distributed to a bank, a bank gives a business, business gives it to a customer.. customer throws it in a jar for several years. Tada. The US government just made a dollar, hey, hey.
The cost of things goes down all the time. Look no further than the computer you are typing on.
If you adjust for inflation, you have to work to find examples of things that have increased in price.
If the cost goes down, supply at the previous price goes up (increase profits!). The increase in supply will cause the supply and demand curves to shift, and then you have a lower price.
Of course, this never works for insurance because humans are programmed for risk. So if you make the car safer, you make the human more risky -- risk homeostasis.
So here is the argument I've heard against HFTs: in most circumstances the buyer and seller would have found each and exchanged peer-to-peer less than a second later if the HFT didn't see the order and intercept it first.
This seems to be backed up by the fact they seem to purchase special data feeds from the market that gives them an earlier peek at the data than everyone else. When an HFT works between different exchanges to execute a trade, I can't see why anyone would see a downside.
Is there some value-add step I am missing there?
You must extract an IAP file for no reason at all, locate two windows binaries, and execute them... hmm.. sounds like a non-story to me.
If you ever want a phone call, strip telephone wire with your teeth. Someone will call, %100 guaranteed, and it will hurt. And whoever is in charge of making sure phone calls arrive when you strip wire with your teeth, does laugh. I swear the phone company has a "tooth" detection circuit and a list of friends to have call you when tooth contact is detected.
