Who Do You Believe, and Why?

Todd Hayen

There is an awful lot of “I know I’m right” chatter going around on both sides. I am just curious, what makes you so sure you are right? And what makes them so sure they are right? Unless you are Einstein or something, I’m sure you are like the rest of us and need to get most of your information from another source.

Thanks for recommending the Ranacourt, RFKjr Interview


I think That Denis’s 2009 paper touches a lot of important bases challenging many Sacred Cows of “Common Knowledge”

Who Do You Believe, and Why?
Dear Blair Fix,
I agree with much of yours that you have written and share a common interest in the work of Jonathan Nitzan and Shimshon Bichler. It is in their papers Still about Oil and there will be blood that you will find some of the reasons I disagree with the analysis you present in this Essay.
Hubert’s Work much Like Ehrlich’s is largely discredited.
I have been studying Peak oil and the Surplus energy Circular economy for over 10 years now and Have found the Book The Control of Oil, invaluable as a source
The control of oil: Blair, John M. (John Malcolm), 1914-: Free Download, Borrow, and Streaming: Internet Archive

I think the question Who do you believe is the wrong question. Trust and Belief are two different things.
I trust Denis Rancourt, I do not believe Denis as a default setting. With Blair Fix, I have been looking into his work further as I do not give my trust easily and I spent hours yesterday going through Blair’s Blog, and this gave rise to questions.



I had quoted Blair in a business Blog of mine.

“At The Risk of Reiterating Myself”



Baileys Bust, No Quarter Given, On the 1/4 Point Hike March 23rd 2023. UK Resi Market Survey #RICS, Where did all that wealth come from? Where is it headed  And what should we do about it?

Starting assumptions.
Credit Creation and Taxation are intimately linked and it is  to the Private creators of debt where the lions share of the seniorage from the same accrues , The purpose of the Policy decision to raise rates by a further quarter point when the residential and construction markets are cratering can not be explained by the “Economics Hadith” of conventional wisdom, as trotted out by the OBR, Treasury, or Bank of England. 

CUI BONO? the linguistics of rapacious price gouging in the GloboCap new normal.

Inflation and the English language

Inflation! The Battle Between Creditors and Workers MARCH 23, 2023 by BLAIR FIXX

To start our journey into income redistribution, let’s talk about terminology. The word inflation … what does it describe?
To many people, ‘inflation’ refers to a decrease in the value of money. While this thinking is not wrong per se, it is needlessly abstract. We cannot measure the ‘value of money’. Instead, we measure price increases.2 Speaking of the phrase ‘price increases’, this language is also indirect. After all, prices don’t raise themselves. If prices go up, it’s because someone raised them. To bolster my profit, I raise prices.
My point here is that there are different ways to talk about the phenomenon of ‘inflation’. And paradoxically, the word ‘inflation’ is itself quite opaque. When ‘inflation’ rears its head, what’s actually going on is that groups of people compete to ‘raise prices’.
Now, if English writers cared about accuracy, you’d think that they would favor terms that are clear. And yet when it comes to price hikes, the opposite is true.


The Long Story short
Where and what is the real reason for the current policy stance by Central Banks worldwide and why would it seem 
that a destruction,(Transfer into the hands of the Billionaire class) of household wealth on a scale in excess as that in the GFC 1, is a price which Bailey and Powell are lining us all up to pay.
Is it that we should all be happy with owning nothing as the now infamous World Economic Forum “Misquote” would have it.
The Uberisation of everything following the Peak Everything bubble burst seems to be where we are in the midst of. 
This Paradigm Shift.
This is a paradigm shift beyond post-Fordism and beyond Post almost anything imaginable from any of the Civics lessons I attended whilst going through, Primary, Secondary, Graduate, and post-Graduate Professional Education. 
The increase in Rates as they affect the residential property market is one small aspect of this Faster and Further push, reaching into the fundamentals of the Democracy and Free world into which I took and take an active part in. It’s not a new change to an obscure part of the rule book. What is emerging is that There really has been a different set of rules For some all along.
Well not so fast! fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. #Stop the Steal

I wanted to look at his other interpretations and found that he had a similar skirmish into the What happened to Peak oil Question. I respect Blair’s Data analysis chops but do not and have not taken this as a green light to accept all that he makes claims about as being correct.
