Christina Warinner Debunking the Paleo Myth

I have been listening to the Paleo Podcast with Rob Wolf  talking about a video on Ted Talks. The video is by Research Associate from the Department of Anthropology at the University of Oklahoma, Christina Warinner. The title of the talk  is “Debunking the Paleo Myth”.

I am open minded to new information on this subject and watched the video before I  listened to all of  to Rob’s podcast. On watching the video I was surprised. Christina Warrina is either a sloppy researcher or she was cynically attempting to alter facts and focus to suit her narrative on a topic that will no doubt get her alot of publicity.

Podcasts on android are not as good as IOS

I love podcasts.

I listen to around two hours of podcasts every day. Recently I bought an android phone. I have now swapped the SIM back and am using my iphone 3gs so I can listen to podcasts again.

There are many podcasting apps you can get for android but my experience with ( I tried them all) is that none is as good as iTunes. This is bourne out by the fact that currently 89% of podcasts are listened to on IOS followed by 9% on android and 2% on RIM.

Unfolding Economic Shift

The world is changing, we are currently witnessing a shift in power which will have a huge impact on people that don’t see it coming. Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa and now Australia by making the decision to trade directly with china are moving off the US dollar as reserve currency it marks a move in world power away from US and European dominance.

Ultimately the western currencies will devalue and economic power and output will move to the places where they are protected from the financial meltdown. The countries in the BRICS alliance are well placed to be the beneficiaries of the shift. Coorporations and transnational companies and individuals may well benefit from all the mess but most of the non-informed propagandised public will be hurt significantly in the panic and by the lower standard of living that will accompany the shift.

In this post I will describe what being a reserve currency means and my view on the possible sequence of events and impacts of the coming economic shift.

Silver is the best hedge against Inflation

Silver has a great deal of potential upside.

There is less silver available today than there was 100 years ago as silver is consumed by industry . Silver is approaching an all time high vs the cost of gold it is  50 times more expensive than gold  compared with a multiple of 30 in 1985 and roduction costs for silver when compared Gold is only 17 times as much.

So silver prices could be different if based on

  • Gold / Silver price Ratio (at 1985 ratio)  $60
  • Production cost ratio  $105
*details on my numbers are lower down in the post

Constitutions of the world

Comparing the different constitutions of the world

Comparing the different constitutions of the world

I like the US constitution and the bill of rights right up to amendment 12. Its a pretty easy read and not that long. There is a profound difference between the US constitution and other constitutions I have read.

The people who emigrated to what was to become the US were fleeing persecution from Europe. Many saw this as an opportunity for freedom from the tyranny they endured where they had come from. For this reason the the people running the states valued autonomy. The states to agreed to the federation on the condition that federal powers were limited and the US constitution and bill of rights represents an explicit attempt to limits the power of government.
