Tom Luongo: Iran, Venezuela And The Two Great Resets

2022 03 07 06 49

Importantly, we discuss some points I haven’t been able to shoehorn into recent blogs because they were already so massive. The first thing is the JCPOA negotiations in Vienna. They are pushing rapidly to conclusion now in order to stabilize oil markets by trying to offset voluntary embargoes of Russian oil with newly-released Iranian production. There are a couple of problems with this calculus, not the least of which is that Iran’s oil sector will not be able to just spin up another 1.5 million bbls/day before Russia responds in ways I discussed in the article linked above, i.e....

Conflicts of Interest #91: The Government Has Continued Massive, Wasteful Spending During Covid

COI_Logo

The US government has preached to its citizens the need to be compliant and accept extreme limitations of freedoms in the name of fighting Covid. However, the government has continued - and even added some new - massive, wasteful spending projects. The US frequently engages in costly military maneuvers as a 'show of force' to Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and Venezuela. Even as we spend trillions fighting the pandemic, Biden is unwilling to cut the military budget. The Army just announced it will spending $21 billion buying HoloLens from Microsoft and also wants to build new long and...

Congress Gives Billion to Foreign Governments and Pennies to Americans

COI_Logo

On COI #50, Kyle breaks down the $2.4 trillion dollar spending bill passed by both houses of Congress. Many of our Representatives are pitching the $600 check each American will receive as a huge boon for us. However, the bill gives billions to foreign countries while putting Americans on the hook for $10,000s of dollars of debt. The bill gives $3.3 billion and $1.3 billion to the oppressive governments in Israel and Egypt. It includes hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to regime change operations in Hong Kong, Tibet, China, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, and Russia. Afghan Death...

Is Capitalism Sustainable? Mike Munger and Keith Knight

What restrains him is only the inevitable natural phenomenon of scarcity.” Ludwig von Mises Human Action, p. 280; p. 283   ...“markets “work” even if people are self-interested, because the dynamics of competition limit bad actions”....“The reason that we tolerate, or in some cases celebrate, capitalism is that entrepreneurs find ways to produce new products, new services, or new ways of making things that make consumers better off.

Can Government Preserve Authoritarian Covid Lockdown Powers?

COI_Logo

On Conflicts of Interest #17, Will and Kyle look at a recent Michigan Supreme Court decision striking down Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Covid-19 emergency orders, which have been continually in force since early March. The move mirrors a similar ruling by a federal judge in Pennsylvania. Iranian fuel shipments to Venezuela continue, sidestepping US sanctions on both countries, while more than 500,000 barrels of seized Iranian gasoline were recently offloaded into US government custody after weeks in legal limbo. A bipartisan bill in the US House would grant Israel a de facto "veto" over...
