THE TRUTH ABOUT STATISTICS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH!!!

94264

Statistics is a statement about the possible correlation between two facts and not a statement of causation or that one fact absolutely causes another. The relationship between two facts may vary in degree based on changing circumstances and the correlation may also be a function of time so that one fact may only significantly affect another many years after its impact.

The correlation between debt and economic growth intuitively and statistically seems to be valid. The more a nation is burdened by debt the less real growth it is capable of.

However, there are many other variables which affect growth such as an increase in the efficiency of infrastructure which promotes growth in the long duration.

Investment in useful technological education skills can also promote eventual greater productivity and economic growth in the long duration.

Decrease in taxes frees up more money to be invested in the economy more efficiently in the long duration because automatic decreases can increase the national debt which does not stimulate growth.

Laws which handicap the growth of small businesses which increase the net income of workers and expand GDP reverse economic growth. These same laws which promote the growth of big business reduces employment of workers thus decreasing net income and resulting in a lower GDP.

A growth in the size of government also decreases a growth in the GDP because government workers are not as productive as private business workers and make the economic growth pie smaller since it is a parasite on the economy.

Business cycles also affect economic growth and during times of recession or depression growth is either slowed down considerably or stopped or it is even reversed in a depression.

An increase in the rate of natural resource usage also increases GDP growth since more goods are produced and sold.

Cheaper energy also stimulates economic growth because more goods are produced more cheaply increasing the net amount of goods in circulation.

Free trade can decrease economic growth because of worldwide competition which causes many workers to go on unemployment or welfare and add to the burden of national debt.

Summarizing the 10 most important intuitive causes of national economic growth they are- laws which promote small businesses, less debt, decrease in government size, decrease in taxes, increase in the use of natural resources, cheaper energy, more efficient infrastructure, more useful technological education, business cycle high, and Fed and bank money investment in the economy from a lending high in the business cycle which unfortunately mostly causes inflation if it is not an investment in small businesses.

No amount of statistical data will verify the correlation of all these 10 variables to economic growth because these variables change and depend on the given point in time that you are talking about which is impossible to correlate accurately or statistically. Statistics just give you rather vague ballpark approximations and they are just a little better than smart intuitive thinking in economics which is still largely intuitive art and not a science which it will never be because there are too many impacting variables.

***Realistically it is debatable whether economic growth is desirable in a finite planet with finite natural resources, especially wilderness, and an ever increasing human population which is threatening the very survival of this precious endangered planet. The real emphasis should be on no inflation very efficient sustainable living and not trying to crazily try and grow indefinitely.

The true goal of all nations should be to function more efficiently with more sustainable living, no inflation or a constant value in money, balancing the budget, and conserving and even expanding wilderness throughout the world.

LYING: AN IMMORAL SOCIAL SCOURGE!!!

1646781772416e52d8d4b29554adc920

Trust is the human bond which makes successful close marital and friendship relationships possible. Without trust a good or great relationship is not possible and if one exists then it is highly dysfunctional filled with misery and trauma. Lie once about a rather unimportant thing and the transgression can be forgiven without dire consequences but develop a habit of lying about little things and soon it escalates into lying about important things and disastrous relationship results follow.

That being said deception and lying is escalating in western cultures, fly by night businesses victimize many with their miraculous deceptive promises, politicians tell humans what they want to hear and when they get elected it is business as usual and all their lying promises are forgotten, and humans lie to each other and then wonder why so many hoped for potential new relationships wind up in the toilet.

There are 7 basic excuses or possible reasons for why some humans lie and none of them are justifiable in the long duration.

Young offspring sometimes try to lie to avoid PUNISHMENT for bad or wrong behavior and sometimes adults try to avoid punishing social criticism or disapproval by lying about their unacceptable behavior.

Adults sometimes lie to EXPLOIT others or gain an advantage. Charismatic con artist are often pathological liars good at making humans feel good, good at creating an illusion of high monied status, and good at manipulating the basic greed of gullible humans. Ordinary humans also sometimes try to gain social advantage by exaggerated praise and kissing up to others, especially authority figures from whom they expect future favors.

Escaping ACCOUNTABILITY is a reason some lie to escape taking blame for unfulfilled promises and blame for irresponsible behavior or stupid mistakes.

Criminals lie to try and get away with STEALING something which doesn’t belong to them and students sometimes lie about cheating or STEALING information which they don’t have memorized. Bosses or coworkers sometimes lie trying to STEAL credit for something a worker has accomplished. Some men lie to STEAL sex from women who would not voluntarily give it knowing the truth.

Some humans lie about their fictitious accomplishments trying to “steal” admiration from others or to gain a COMPETIVE ADVANTAGE in a job application.

Some sadly lie to themselves about their real worth and potential trying to make themselves FEEL GOOD while living a rather mundane existence.

Some lie to inflict mental and sometimes physical PAIN. Being called ugly, stupid, being victimized by an untrue bit of gossip, and being told to do something illegal which we are assured is legal are just a few of the cruel ways that some humans lie to us to inflict pain and often cause pleasure in the cruel offender.

CONCLUSION:

Your lying will eventually destroy your social reputation and the only way that liars can make a living at it is to become a gypsy traveling the world looking for new suckers to take your lying bait.

The internet is making it possible to scam the world and do so from one general location so deceitful lying humans are here to stay on into the foreseeable future but hopefully their numbers will decrease and not increase.

What is really needed is a universal accepted secular morality where lying of any kind is considered an immoral transgression. Without that secular morality lying will continue to create chaos and plague humanity on into the distant future.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CLUE!!!

CLUE_logo-01

Clue: n. a subset(s) potentially useful in solving a problem(s) and/or identifying a set(s)

A clue in a mystery, crime, puzzle, or unidentified event is a bit of information used alone or with other clues to solve a mystery, crime, puzzle, or unknown event or to infer some fact and/or fiction from a clue(s).  Much experience and/or knowledge is often needed to extrapolate valid information from clues only and most extrapolations are merely statistical assumptions or guesses which are not frequently that accurate in real life.

Circumstantial evidence is sometimes presented as a clue(s) or proof of a crime when in reality there is only a statistical probability that the evidence is really valid and not just an exercise in guilt by association.

THE TRUTH ABOUT HINT!!!

hint-clipart-hint-hi

Hint: v. to partially reveal a fact and/or fiction and/or to reveal a subset(s) and implying a set(s)

A hint always assumes to some extent that you have the ability to infer a fact and/or fiction from incomplete information. From experience some humans make associations from hints rather successfully but others are very bad at taking hints and generalizing to what you want them to think about.

Some games challenge you to guess the “right” answer based upon hints but unfortunately you usually need a very good memory to guess right and most common humans with average memories soon tire or get bored with the games.
