May 31st is my "official" last day to work as a therapist for Catholic Charities. My journey began nearly 7 years ago, when I was struck down with Heart Failure, which was a result of an arrythmia that got out of control and caused my heart to go into Atrial Fibrillation.

Seeing other cars like mine made me feel connected to the world because I was growing up. I was fitting in.
As life went by, I realized…Continue

If people can trust the future they will have lower time preferences which will amplify the transforming capability of capital. There are very specific interventions into the economy that strongly influence the level of trust. If there is a tendency to choose war as the main or even as a viable alternative to diplomacy then the lessened trust that such an act engenders atrophies the economy.
