Key Principle #1 - U.S. Debt Cannot Be Repaid
  • Concepts: We are betting on “Too Big to Fail” to save us 
    • Our borrowing is unsustainable 
    • Our spending is unsustainable 
    • Low interest rates are unsustainable 
    • The U.S. cannot keep our promises – unfunded entitlements
       
  • Watch For: We are mortgaging the future
    • Spend now and pay later with no offer of HOW!

Key Principle #2 - Inflation is The Dirty Little Secret

  • Concepts: Taxing, Spending or throw an inflation party 
    • Governments like inflation
       
  • Watch For: The government printing and spending money with little concern 
    • Increased prices 
    • Prepare for your cash to go down in value

Key Principle #3 - Incentives Drive an Economy – Can't Mandate “Fair”

  • Concepts: The impact of increased minimum wage on immigration – do the math 
    • Short term incentives change behavior – in the short term 
    • Markets create business – policies create blips – i.e. cash for clunkers  
    • Natural incentives are true predictors of the future
       
  • Watch For: Measurements altered by short term incentives 
    • False markets created by short term incentives 
    • Policies that can't be sustained by natural markets

Key Principle #4 -You Now Have Permission To Think!!

  • Watch For: If something doesn't make sense, it probably doesn't make Cents!
