OBAMA needs to Learn Economics Part 1

"All things are subject to the laws of cause and effect." - Menger

This is not philosophy but truth on causation.
Physics teaches us that energy is neither created nor destroyed.

What do you think free market thinkers speak of when we discuss the market fluctuations?
Whenever there is an interference within the market, it will have to react in order to re-stabilize.
The more you interfere the more the market will have to fluctuate.

What Obama does not understand, is that by the government not interfering within the market the individuals will not have halted. They will still be buying and selling. Their actions will be the cause that effects other's actions. This is how the market fluctuates.

I would like someone to explain to me how this is philosophy, or does someone want to take the side of explaining how government action actually means individual citizens actions.
We act with or without governments actions. Our actions do not need government involvement for them to affect one another.

Let us remember the lesson Henry Hazlitt wanted everyone to learn in his first chapter of Economics in One Lesson.
"The art of economics consists in looking not merely at the immediate but at the longer effects of any act or policy; it consists in tracing the con- sequences of that policy not merely for one group but for all groups."

Part Two following shortly on "Government will create more jobs"

The Failure of the “Market Failure” Argument

Dr. John Hasnas, Law professor at Georgetown University, gave a lecture to the Students for Liberty (Webminar Series) on November 8, 2010. Hasnas lecture was not on the Market Failure (MF) but rather the FAILURE of the Market Failure argument. Hasnas exposed his arguments against the MF from his knowledge in law and ethics. Hasnas could not being more eloquent in establishing the distinction of what constitutes for him the disappointment in the argumentation of the defenders of the subject in question.
I will now share my notes from Hasnas’ lecture:
The Market Failure (Definition according to Hasnas): The market is full with transactions that happen simultaneously. There are unregulated voluntary as well as regulated voluntary transactions. However, the market failure occurs when the good outcome(s) of these transactions affect negatively third parties. Advocates of the MF often mention the following examples when the “market fails;” air pollution, deforestation, water contamination t…

Get the Hell Out!

The Ecuadorian government has declared “Persona non grata” to the United States Ambassador, Heather Dodges. Ricardo Patiño, Ecuador’s Foreign Minister, asked Hodges to leave Ecuador as soon as possible due to a WIKILEAKS cable where the Ambassador alleged police corruption, which was known by Ecuador’s government (FOXNEWS)

Patiño requested Hodges to leave after she did not provide the explanation Patiño looked for. Ecuador’s Foreign Minister was unsatisfied with Hodges’ explanation. Hodges said that the information was stolen from the United States Government. Therefore, she had nothing to explain to Ecuadorian authorities. The cable leak first appeared in the Spanish newspaper El País.

Whether Heather Hodges sent a cable or not. Ecuador’s government has no support to base diplomatic decisions of expelling a foreign diplomat on those grounds. Ecuador’s government is not only battling domestic disagreement with Rafael Correa’s administration but also foreign. What is next?
