The same page doesn’t mean we’re in total agreement. It means we understand the ‘gist’ of each other now and aren’t reading from different books.
Measuring the exchange value itself as a bidirectional ‘thing-in-itself” disassociated from product or service is probably what makes the whole field fascinating.
Looking at other economies that are worse doesn’t make our economy better.
“Wait and see” can be dangerous particularly when bad things are happening around you. It’s like being a horse wearing blinders when the barn is on fire.
He has said so on numerous occasions. I’m not sure what style of economics that is but I do know he was known for his foreclosure actions during the 2007/2008 mortgage crisis, so he may understand a falling economy better than a rising one. That’s all I can figure.
Talk about what’s strong about what we’re doing or should be doing.
IF I want to turn a screw, you can tell me not to use a hammer as it’s not very effective. You can also tell me to not use a glass of water as it’s not very effective.
But stopping there and not saying what TO do, isn’t very useful.
I’m the scientist, the large thing is my 6.5 yr old nephew, and my 8 yr old niece joined in from her phone as well. They live here.
With the kids all home from school permanently for the rest of the year (school is cancelled for the year, everybody automatically passes for the next year, no testing or grades – all quite bizarre), I’ll be doing having to avoid him a lot – as 6.5 yr olds will play with you ALL DAY LONG.
Time isn’t money but we can assign it that role and we collectively do. Time is a measurement of change. Spending time playing with kids doesn’t make money today. But it makes for a better society in the future if done right.
The thing about this kind of investing – investing in people, investing in character, investing in a sense of safety and comfort and trust – is these values (see what I did there? – changing definition for value) can grow of their own accord with each interaction, whether you’re there or not.
One bad event can be a cancer that grows or a fracture that won’t heal.
But a lot of little good interactions add up. Multiple. Exponential. Who knows how to model it? But they’re usually very small. So it takes a lot of them.
Ok, that was my off topic thing.
Fake time is the value of the 40 hour work week. Real time is that half hour spent playing with the kid.
Ah. I see the disconnect. When the post says “TIME IS FAKE”, she’s talking about things like deadlines, assigning importance to arbitrary dates and times whereby work-must-be-accomplished-by a time.
SOMETIMES there are real deadlines that are actually important.
But they’re at a far smaller percentage than the things we regularly assign as deadlines.
“You have to get this project done by Friday.”
_why? Do you need to use it for something?_
“No, that’s just when I want you to do it by.”
That’s what fake is.
In _fact_, Jes, the answer is sitting right in the word itself.
Work is fake. Time is Fake.
Busy work. Busy Time. Filling time. Killing time.
I’ve done a lot of office work. A lot of what you do is arbitrary busywork. A little is significant. Most is not.
I’m not stopping anybody from spending their time how they like.

2013 – 2020Basically, it’s modified George Soros – author writes about their modification to his ideas.Short of it: Nothing wrong with a Soros model but part of it is encouraging and profiting from well placed bits of chaos that utilizes the emotional investing of people, tendency to get cocky and upset alike, etc.https://www.linkedin.com/in/sukhayl-niyazov/
All school buildings are shut down until April 15th to be reassessed.School is cancelled state wide. Everybody passes to the next year. NO grades. No tests happening. It’s over.Restaurants have to cut capacity in 1/2 and I’m expecting that to get smaller.Lost jobs all over here too, including in this house.What to do?This is where governments and corporations step in. As America is run by corporations more than governments, most internet and phone companies will not shut anybody off for 60 days. Same with electric.
SO that’s several things where time has stopped or paused for now.
School, internet bill, phone bill, electric bill, all paused.
“Firms with fewer than 500 workers accounted for 99.7 percent of businesses. Firms with fewer than 100 workers accounted for 98.2 percent.”
Profit margins for most businesses is not that high. There’s simply no margin for stopping suddenly for a day or week or two.
