Hayek, for example, defines an “order” (and I’m paraphrasing here) as a set of relations from which it’s possible to draw a reasonable inference about a part of the order that we aren’t familiar with based on our knowledge of the part that we are familiar with.

The Extraordinary Business of Life : The Freeman : Foundation for Economic Education (fee.org) - Your Highlight Location 3-7 | Added on Wednesday, 10 July 13 06:41:39 I heard it again from this year’s commencement speaker: the common mistake of thinking economics is just about business and making money. I know I’m not the only economics teacher who every year has to disabuse his students (and many of his own colleagues from other disciplines) of that same error. Economics is not business administration or accounting. Economics is a science that studies how people interact when the means at their disposal are scarce in relation to their ends. That includes business, of course, but a whole lot more as well.

The Truth About SwedenCare (mises.org) - Your Highlight Location 83-87 | Added on Thursday, 11 July 13 02:19:37 In the final stage of a central planning failure, the planners simply give up. They want to wash their hands of the whole thing, and decide to “privatize” the services. In practice, this means that they unload hospitals at fire sale prices to well-connected “entrepreneurs.” The planners turn themselves into overseers and guarantors of quality. This creates a highly protected “market” wherein the “entrepreneurs” are only required to deliver government-quality services at prices determined by what it would cost government to do the same.

O enfermo não tem direito a ela, que surge de um erro de raciocínio ou de imaginação, uma vez que o homem são atribui ao doente a sua própria maneira de experimentar emoções, ideando que este seja, de certo modo, uma pessoa sadia que tenha de suportar os tormentos de um enfermo – o que é um equívoco crasso. O enfermo é justamente um enfermo, com a natureza particular e o modo de sentir modificado que a doença acarreta. Esta prepara a sua vítima com o fim de adaptá-la a si própria. Há diminuições de sensibilidade, desfalecimentos, narcoses providenciais, medidas da natureza, no sentido do ajustamento e alívio morais e espirituais, fenômenos que o homem são, na sua ingenuidade, se esquece de levar em conta.

Questioning the Government’s GDP Numbers (consultingbyrpm.com) - Your Highlight Location 6-13 | Added on Friday, 2 August 13 16:11:33 OK, let’s step back for a second and think about this. In recent years, the government run an annual deficit that hit 10% of GDP (the highest since World War II). The Fed took over AIG and engaged in what Jeff Hummel calls “central planning” by intervening in specific asset markets (while tripling its balance sheet). We had a huge move toward government takeover of the health insurance sector. The Treasury literally took ownership (some argue effectively at gunpoint) of major banks. They also bailed out the Detroit automakers. There are currently proposals floating around to institute a several trillion dollar (scored over the first decade) carbon tax, i.e. tax on energy (given current infrastructure). So: If all of the above just causes some sluggish growth in the economy, such that Peter Schiff doesn’t even pass the “laugh test” for suggesting we’re still in a bad recession, then why the heck are so many of us interested in free-​market economics? It clearly doesn’t make that much of a difference, right?

My Thoughts on Formalism in Economics (consultingbyrpm.com) - Your Highlight Location 44-52 | Added on Wednesday, 4 September 13 09:19:43 Until I saw it with my own eyes, I would not have believed how much the people in top-ranked economics programs are great at math, but bad at basic economics of the kind that I learned by reading op eds from Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell growing up. For example, one of our professors went through the Solow growth model and then concluded that it was a great mystery why the return to investment had been so low in the former Soviet Union, since after all their engineers trained at Western universities so they had the same production functions. (!) Our game theory professor relayed an anecdote in which all but one person (Aumann) at a game theory conference said he or she would offer “0″ in the Ultimatum game, since this was the unique subgame perfect Nash equilibrium. (And just remember, these were the guys helping to design strategy during the Cold War.) I And my all-time favorite: I didn’t witness it personally, but apparently at a meeting when the United Auto Workers were trying to unionize our grad students, a guy who was really good at math in our program piped up and told the provost that NYU owned some apartment buildings, and so it could offer to give them at zero price to the grad students since it wouldn’t cost NYU anything.

Perhaps it’s a great paper. But over the past 35 years I’ve read about 147 other similar abstracts that sound equally hopeful. My problem with this sort of literature is that it is not progressive. It ignores most other previous “successful” studies. Some would argue that this means economics is a not a “science.” When I read that, it just makes me think that the writer doesn’t have a good definition of ‘science.’ But I sympathize with the negativity, if not the epistemology. There is something wrong with a field where we have one explanation after another, and each new one ignores most of the existing literature.

Robert P. Murphy, Why Government Doesn't—and Can't—Manage Resources Like a Private Business (econlib.org) - Your Highlight Location 7-11 | Added on Thursday, 5 December 13 05:19:05 According to a common but naïve worldview, there are objective, well-known techniques for producing various goods and services, and the consumer preferences regarding these outputs are also common knowledge. In such a worldview—which even many professional economists, in discussing policy, seem to hold—it seems only natural to conclude that government officials could improve upon the decentralized market outcome. After all, the government has access to the same “production function” as private firms, and if it decides to be the monopoly producer of a good or service, it can avoid wasteful advertising expenses and other redundancies.

The psychological and historical evidence cannot show whether this radical ethical hypothesis is true. But what the evidence does suggest is that if that hypothesis were true, it is quite likely that we would still by and large feel bound to obey our governments. That is likely, because even people who are subjected to the clearest examples of illegitimate power still typically feel bound to obey. And if we felt this requirement to obey, it is likely that this would lead us to think and say that we were obliged to obey and then – in the case of the more philosophically minded among us – to devise theories to explain why we have this obligation.

Converted-HAYEK, THE COMMON LAW, AND FLUID DRIVE ([email protected]) - Your Highlight Location 199-212 | Added on Sunday, 30 March 14 16:13:55 Note the nature of the process. Human beings live together without fixed, known rules of behavior. No central authority exists with the power to establish and enforce such rules. Conflicts inevitably arise, often resulting in violence that disrupts normal life in the community and undermines cooperative activities. This creates strong social incentives to find an alternative method of resolving the conflicts. At first, the members of the community encourage disputants to voluntarily negotiate settlements and facilitate such negotiations by acting as mediators. As this process reduces social strife, publicly mediated negotiations become mandatory, and thus, more frequent. As certain types of negotiated settlements prove successful and are repeated, the members of the community come to expect that similar disputes will be resolved similarly. They begin to base their behavior on these expectations. They also take them into consideration when mediating subsequent disputes, basing their judgment of what constitutes a fair accommodation at least in part on what they believe the parties should have expected given the resolution of past disputes. This makes it more likely that subsequent disputes will be resolved in the same way as previous ones, further reinforcing the emerging expectations. Eventually, there develops a sufficient “stabilization of interactional expectancies” for the members of the community “to guide their conduct toward one another by these expectancies.”25 The continued iteration of the dispute settlement process then gradually transforms these interactional expectancies into recognized rules of behavior. This, in turn, allows the process itself to evolve from one of mediated bargaining into one of the enforcement of rules. And this transforms the question at issue from what constitutes a fair composition of a dispute to what constitutes the fair application of rules to a particular case.

As Karl Popper explains: We shall be talking less and less about experiences, perceptions, thoughts, beliefs, purposes and aims; and more and more about brain processes, about dispositions to behave, and about overt behavior. In this way mentalist language will go out of fashion and be used only in historical reports, or metaphorically, or ironically. When this stage has been reached, mentalism will be stone-dead, and the problem of mind in relation to the body will have solved itself.65 Recently, archaeologist Peter Watson complained in New Scientist that it isn’t happening fast enough: The social, psychological and cognitive sciences remain stuck with prescientific words and concepts. For many of us the word “soul” is as obsolete as “phlogiston,” but scientists still use such imprecise words as “consciousness,” “personality” and “ego,” not to mention “mind.”      Perhaps it is time that, in science at least, “imagination” and “introspection” are remodelled or, preferably, retired. Artists can have fun with them, but the serious business of the world has moved on.66 Watson provides no evidence that words such as “consciousness,” “mind,” and “imagination” create a problem for anyone other than the promissory materialist. Language is a group project, after all, and words that have truly lost meaning become obsolete by common consent, not banishment.

Tendo sua ambição tomado vulto... Estás me ouvindo? MIRANDA — Estou, senhor, que a vossa narração curaria os próprios surdos. PRÓSPERO — Porque anteparo algum se interpusesse entre o papel que então lhe competia e o ator desse papel, julgou preciso tornar-se de Milão o único dono. Eu, coitado, ducado muito grande já me era a biblioteca. Ele julgou-me incapaz da realeza temporária; confederou-se com o Rei de Nápoles — tal era a sua sede de domínio! — prometendo pagar-lhe anual tributo e prestar-lhe homenagem, sujeitando sua coroa à dele, e, assim, deixando-a — pobre Milão, que nunca se dobrara! — na mais vil sujeição.

The Spiritual Brain (Beauregard, Mario;O'Leary, Denyse) - Your Highlight on page 171 | location 3386-3392 | Added on Tuesday, 24 June 2014 17:13:00 For psychokinesis, current research uses a random number generator (RNG), an electronic circuit that randomly flips an electronic “coin,” while recording the results. In a typical modern experiment, random spikes of electronic noise or radioactive decay occurring several thousand times per second interrupt a crystal-controlled clock that is counting at a rate of 10 million cycles per second. The clock’s state when interrupted will produce either 1 or 0. The experimental subject is asked to influence the RNG’s output by “wishing” for 1’s or 0’s. A small but stable effect has been shown over sixty years of tossing dice and RNGs that is reliable irrespective of the subject or the experimenter and remains when independent or skeptical investigators participate.142 A meta-analysis looking at 832 RNG studies conducted during the last decades showed odds against chance beyond a trillion to one.143

If so, McGrath warns, “There is a massive gap between analogy and identity—and, as the history of science illustrates only too painfully, most false trails in science are about analogies which were mistakenly assumed to be identities.”140

I suggest that no existence proof is required because memes are defined as information that is copied from person to person. So, as long as you admit that imitation occurs, they must exist.143

Along similar lines, Henri Bergson14 and Aldous Huxley15 have proposed that our brains do not produce mind and consciousness, but rather act as reducing valves, allowing us the experience of only a narrow portion of perceivable reality. This outlook implies that the brain normally limits our experience of the spiritual world.
