  • Dwelling on housing growth is misguided | Business Spectator
    of history which we have been experiencing is false The future is liable to pay the cost for the version of history which we have enjoyed Those that don t vote don t pay tax and don t derive the majority of the benefit the young are those who are expected to pick up the tab for the largesse of the current generation Will the do so gladly I doubt it KS Ken not available Fri 2014 01 10 18 21 Sorry Keyser you may have thought that I was disagreeing with you not so My solution is different from yours because you dont propose a solution only an outcome So lets talk about the twilight zone As you know it was the originator of the Twilight zone that created economics His name was Isaac Newton he was this crazy dood that talked about forces Sheesh pretty dark stuff he left us these 3 crazy laws that said stupid things like a body at rest will remain at rest unless a force is applied Its like the AUD will remain high unless someone exerts effort to bring its value down Then he made this stupid statement that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction boy did Bernanke prove him wrong we all know that debt has a negative force and credit has a positive force and the forces will cancel each other out But Bernanke is a great physicist he can disprove that law by running the world using negative equity Now getting back to trade the term trade is an abbreviation for trade for difference Not many people understand that that is why businesses are collapsing If you cant make or sell something for a profit then you would not see the relevance of trading to profit from the difference sales price cost of production Now because all countries like to have their own currency we have to have a measuring stick to evaluate sovereign currency value and we call this measuring stick the central currency USD To avoid another 4 pages of writing let me explain mass it is just a bag full of energy interacting in balance Its just like the FOREX market in Chicago everyday these people look at the sovereign currencies and examine how they have changed When they see changes they buy or sell it to keep it in balance if this is not done then inflation may become rampant and the value of the currency would collapse Now I follow the Newtonian paradigm and analogize mass and currencies they are both just a bag full of forces acting with or against each other So where I come unstuck is that am talking to people who are not familiar with the parts of a proton or the pieces of a currencies value As I say nothing exists without potential difference and economics does not exist without trade for difference Welcome to the banking zone or quantum physics Keyser Söze Fri 2014 01 10 18 45 Ken The outcome is the solution Interference by those that claim to have the only answers is the problem Sir Isaac himself discovered the difference between economics and science when he lost a great deal of his own money as an investor he was a dismal failure I therefore can t see how one can credibly hold his physics theories up as some economic formula I m sure he was emotional at his loss and emotion is a gaping hole in your analogy above Price is objective value is subjective Every transaction has a t least one buyer and a t least one seller Where you come unstuck to use your analogy is that you are wedded to universal laws which are at best principles when it comes to economics I m pretty sure that business people understand the trade for difference or put another way the profit motive That s why they get out of bed in the morning KS Ken not available Fri 2014 01 10 21 15 Keyser sorry that did not meet with your approval but I don t have the time to explain analogies however because a person is a qualified veterinarian does not mean that they are a horse racing expert Newton was one of the greatest physicists so why should that mean he would be a good investor There is no rational reason why he has to be a good investor he introduced economics to the world but does that mean he can predict the future He also invented calculus but that was just a spare time hobby No quantum physics is not theory no the big bang is not a theory think about electrons the next time you switch on your computer I am not claiming to have answers what I am saying is absolutely true and it is not my purpose to teach you physics I took physics and economics to use analogously to produce a potentiality It is worthy of examination because all the input data is relevant Keyser Söze Fri 2014 01 10 22 08 Ken If Newtons physics theories were applicable transferable to economics or investing one would think his track record would have been as good in both disciplines But it s not I appreciate you humouring me I once watched a documentary on genius level IQ people which mapped their success in life Surprisingly success is not correlated with IQ to the contrary the higher up the scale you go the poorer the score due to the prescious genius being unable to develop social skills and relate to the common man Now I m not saying you re a genius by any stretch You and I are just words on a page Or screen to be more precise But I feel like much of your frustration is self inflicted The common man is who populates this forum KS Ken not available Sat 2014 01 11 11 40 Keyser why do you think that I enjoy talking to you Because you are able look outside the square not always but sometimes Basically Newton created an analogy to explain his theories of physics The analogy was called economics he created calculus to allow the mathematically inclined to prove his theories Now because we are talking about the housing market which is part of the debt market that is part of the banking system which is based on the Universal law of Trade for difference we can see why Newton wanted to quantify cash flow His 3 laws of motion notice the term law that means that the theories have been proven analogized cash flow So what I am saying is that Newton created economics to analogize his laws of physics I have taken it into a modern context and analogized energy with trade for difference I remember posting a 12 point plan on how to harvest potential difference that you critizised Now I have refined the model using absolutes that cannot be disputed laws not theories this is what Newton did he used money to explain immutable laws of motion Understanding a concept is only the first stage in the scenario explaining the concept is the next stage and requires analogies to create the necessary patterns to be stored in the neuro cortex as memories When the analogies have been stored as memories they can be recalled to augment more complex concepts Keyser that is how we learn and Newton taught us how to build complex patterns by using easier concepts and I am just clarifying that by quoting Einstein who stated The secret to genius is knowing what to remember Keyser Söze Sat 2014 01 11 13 57 Ken You re an old dog and change would constitute a new trick I enjoy our sometimes futile exchanges Newton s second law has been disproven Keep using your physics analogies and a small fraction of the universe might understand 1 of what you write KS Ken not available Sat 2014 01 11 15 04 Keyser its a pity that I will have to enter the Pavlovian diatribe because it took me a long time to escape from the other dogs who were happy to get dog biscuits for performing tricks But what the hell the US fed will feed us and we all know that Australian politicians will provide us with a reason for living It might not be so bad sitting back drinking beer and watching the footie or drinking wine with the boys when the summer cricket starts Then when the year ends I like all my friends can collect our little pieces of paper and ask you to advise us on how we can make more money from our investments Life is good there are no deficits no unemployment no energy crisis Shit Keyser becoming a lazy bastard is brilliant now why did I not discover this brilliant life style Ken not available Fri 2014 01 10 21 15 Keyser sorry that did not meet with your approval but I don t have the time to explain analogies however because a person is a qualified veterinarian does not mean that they are a horse racing expert Newton was one of the greatest physicists so why should that mean he would be a good investor There is no rational reason why he has to be a good investor he introduced economics to the world but does that mean he can predict the future He also invented calculus but that was just a spare time hobby No quantum physics is

purpose to teach you physics I took physics and economics to use analogously to produce a potentiality It is worthy of examination because all the input data is relevant Ken Mortensen Sat 2014 01 11 02 02 Ken I m adept in transcendential mediation I often levitate above these posts and view them for what they really are a load of bored males mostly expounding their closed circuit wisdom over a non event articulated by spectators less informed than ourselves and who no doubt get paid by the response rather than by the content I just don t know how Bartholomeusz survives The potential difference that keeps me here is that if I wake the missus I ll potentially be scolded for having another bottle of magic potent near the mouse It has the potential to turn men into mouses slipways even That s the potential short circuit between and where everything shorts back to earth But as far as philosophers telling us fairytales You Da Man Ken not available Sat 2014 01 11 12 43 Ken time for you to self medicate with another bottle of magic potent that should keep your posts flowing Colin Barsby Sat 2014 01 11 11 01 There will be NO Recession under a government I lead Tony Abbott Colin Barsby Sat 2014 01 11 11 08 Can t remember if that was a core or non core promise Then again if we don t report it it didn t happen yeah that ll work Ken not available Sat 2014 01 11 11 52 Colin its like time share accommodation you sell people ideas If you dont like the idea you dont buy it Whereas China sold us the idea that no child under the age of 12 will be without a computer by 2012 Stewie Griffin Fri 2014 01 10 12 02 Great article Callum there has been nothing great about the great Australian land boom it has unjustly enriched one generation while simultaneously impoverishing all that have followed leaving Australia precariously perched on the edge of debt cliff dangerously reliant on foreign lenders The sooner our leaders wake up to this fact and set about undertaking necessary and painful reforms with respect to our planning laws and how our councils and new land developments are funded the better If not our competitiveness will continue to decline as our outrageous land prices become embedded in the cost structure of every aspect of doing business in Australia Bruce 55 Fri 2014 01 10 12 36 Australia The land of land Doesn t make sense that there is a shortage of building blocks of ever diminishing size Keyser Söze Fri 2014 01 10 15 34 The land of land equates to the land of distance The relative scarcity is of suitably located land Poor infrastructure and high energy costs further reduces land value and prospectivity out in the burbs KS Bruce 55 Fri 2014 01 10 15 50 KS add to that a desire by councils developers to drip release new building blocks Sure we do have issues of distance but we also have issues of fair play or lack of it when it comes to releasing new building blocks Stewie Griffin Fri 2014 01 10 20 47 That is a facility KS there is plenty of land suitable for development we ve just drawn a line around our cities and said Thou shalt not build outside this line simultaneously creating land scarcity within its bounds and secondly obliviating any environmental gains supposedly from encouraging higher density living within its bounds by forcing a large segment of the population to leap frog over the cities bounds and commuting far longer distances Keyser Söze Fri 2014 01 10 21 53 No Stewie Land is relatively scarcer the closer to the CBD one gets It is also more expensive per m2 making its affordable development cost prohibitive other than for high density Affordable well located land is under supplied KS Stewie Griffin Fri 2014 01 10 22 04 Prices are set at the margins KS The lack of competition for land on our city fringes brought about by the imposition of municipal urban limits feed through to higher prices right back through the system The simple development costs for initial plots on the fringe could daily be recouped over time by the adoption of a land tax based funding mechanism as opposed to our current reliance on stamp duties A stable revenue stream that such an approach would offer would also help ongoing infrastructure development a gain eventually recouped via higher taxes as the value of the land rose through infrastructure improvement as opposed to the current model based around scarcity Ken Mortensen Sat 2014 01 11 02 26 Stewie That s what the NBN is for It s the infrastructure we always needed the FTTN the FTTH the FTTP that we all so desperately FTKN needed We

  • The ECB is failing to do whatever it takes | Business Spectator
    Europe s filthy rich Global imbalances remain Once deleveraging can no longer be postponed by printing money the enormous cost and debt of that money printing will be offloaded onto their citizens That ordinary people will suffer in silence indicates the incredible capacity of the mainstream media to manufacture consent for ruling class excess Eire became the poster child for austerity by implementing 28 5 billion in austerity measures since 2008 while maintaining a cohesive society to quote a typical article the Irish people thus waved away with five words with disinterest as utter and as complete as for the ordinary Iraqis Afghans Libyans and Syrians entombed by Western criminality Success expected in 2014 means a Budget deficit of only 7 5 of GDP Gillard Labor Abbott Noalition rejoice at such a number Its 14 unemployment and another Irish Diaspora of 40 000 to 50 000 each year are airbrushed from debate Stephen Nordstrom Fri 2014 01 10 15 01 There has been no government austerity only self imposed austerity by the public The only policy by government has been Financial Repression via central banks Everything has been tried and failed and we just await the final collapse Phil Clarke Fri 2014 01 10 10 45 What fragile economic recovery Callam Where do you get these ideas from The rich are getting richer the poor are getting poorer and increasingly in and around the Eurozone ordinary people on national average wages which is generally vastly less than half of the population can no longer finacially afford to live in capital cities Fragile recovery be damned The sooner financial journalists start being honest and acknowledge publicly that the present variant of the economic system is stuffed buggered dysfunctional or suffering from a permanent and potentially fatal decline in funtionality the better for all of us Tell your readers the truth It is dead as a dodo passed on gone to meet its maker Stop trying to treat the economic system in the manner of John Cleese s parrot It is no good nailing it s corpse to the perch and callng pretty Polly We all know it has pawned its clogs Adam Sat 2014 01 11 21 07 I agree the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer and the middle class is being destroyed the ones who actually pay for it all However your proposed solution of a social state has zero percent chance of happening Callum s has a higher probability Adam Sat 2014 01 11 21 52 To clarify the system may collapse one day but that may be way off u cannot predict collapses Socialists would say it has already but that is not what the rest of the world thinks They were probably saying the same nonsense in 1930s Dave Fri 2014 01 10 11 40 You write without any sense of the politics and as if the ECB is a free agent Draghi understands exactly what needs to be done and has saved the Euro area from disaster so far after taking over from the useless Trichet but is very limited in what he can do Germany largely dictates what happens and is paranoid about debt and inflation as well as fearing that southern Europe won t reform unless their feet are held to the flame Also it is not clear in your article that Germany benefits from a low Euro relative to what the mark would be while it is killingly high for the south Draghi has managed to make some pro growth moves but always in the teeth of fierce German opposition Joseph Ellul Fri 2014 01 10 11 49 Each country in the Eurozone has its own specific problems but they all have on specific currency This is the problem To overcome such hurdles all countries need floating currencies This is common sense and works but the US does not like a floating market as this would detach the US from the oil of which the US seems to have a lot of lately standard During the 2007 8 GFC the US Fed sent secret loans to EU banks to keep the Eu currency from extermination Mario Draghi is US puppet and will do what he can to accommodate the Fed This was beneficial to the US as it made the US Fed superior Now that both Iraq and Libya are reliant on western help and guidance there is little chance that GOLD will show its head in the near future Iran is playing the field with the US while China and Russia accumulate real wealth If and when the Euro folds the US will be at a loss as this will make European countries economically viable with each other and a great international competitor The long play of the FED is to make the US the only international trading currency failing this the US will have to go to war or bankruptcy To make this happen it must mate with the Chinese Renminbi as China holds the key to US debt China is also working hard to obtain as much GOLD as possible so as not to fall in the same trap as the EU As you know most of the GOLD is owned by the US Europe and now China The US is already in charge of the EU GOLD Cyprus proved this and Germany has to wait 6 more years to get their GOLD from the US No more proof needed here In short I have come to the conclusion that the US wants to make GOLD the world standard again but only when the US and only the US will be in a position of might to dictate of when and how much GOLD is worth So much for GOLD OR NOT So you may ask and what about the oil In the not so distant future gas will overtake oil as a main energy source but in relation to time this will be short
