Financial institutions continue to ignore any reasonable risk-management practices. Which means the banks will crash again. The 2008 bailouts have only made them feel invincible.

Economy: Life, Liberty, and Money
Everything about the Economy
Our economy articles have two major themes: major economic updates and research analysis.
One of the main things we want to accomplish with this section is to expand the general interest in economics. The economy is such a central part of everyone’s everyday life, but many ignore it. We believe this is a pinnacle reason politics and culture have degraded. If a person does not understand finances, they cannot understand politics. The economy is the single most important figure in every government. Without a good working knowledge of how it works, we can make no progress in political discourse.
Economic updates include occasional update articles on the state of the economy in the US. Normally we’ll toss in some things happening around the world as their own separate articles if there is enough interest.
Research analysis articles incorporate the latest research and my personal philosophy to find interesting insights into society and human behavior. With the addition of some game theory elements, we can find some interesting outcomes and uncover why so much “science” in the research community is garbage.
