• The Post-Market Economy - Part I: Chaos on Planet ZIRP - Eric Janszen


    Faith can overcome evidence but not forever.

    Two trends will be with us for the next 20 years:

    “We” deserve to win, don’t we?

    Except those are not the rules on Planet ZIRP.

    I get this all the time. The questions.
