You'll learn more about why people do and think what they think and do by studying economics than you will studying psychology.
This is upside down.
Economics is the result of human behavior. Economics is what happens when people and governments choose how to allocate capital and labor. There are no true Laws of economics as there are of science and math.
No reputable economist from Adam Smith to the present would pretend otherwise.
Understand group psychology and you'll have a foundation in economics.
Yes, you can observe human behavior by studying economics but the horse will always lead the cart.

Adam Smith on the division of labor (his starting point in economics)
Division of labour arises not from innate wisdom, but from humans' propensity to barter. The apparent difference in natural talents between people is a result of specialisation, rather than any innate cause.
The economic effect is the result of human psychology.
Market price
"When the quantity of any commodity which is brought to market falls short of the effectual demand, all those who are willing to pay... cannot be supplied with the quantity which they want... Some of them will be willing to give more. A competition will begin among them, and the market price will rise...
The main driving forces of classical and modern economics: Greed, Altruism (contradictory, eh?), Fear, Need and the Common Good. How any individual or government prioritizes them is due to individual or group psychology.

Come on Chuffles I just took a shet made breakfast and started a load of laundry.
Hard to do because my legs are not really working from the pinched nerves a few days ago. But still no retort from your massive intellect.
Dude you are so slow.


Edited to add. I see you finally got back to being your usual asself.

Chef, Since you're measuring dicks here. How many of your posts are something besides political hate? I'm guessing a ratio of 97/3.

Global Warming is the scientifically explained result of human behavior and choices.
Climate Change is the inevitable scientifically explained result of Global Warming.
We confuse or ignore these truths at our peril.
We have the technical skills to reduce the rate of global warming. We may not be able to reverse it in this century.
We only lack the will (Greed, Fear of the unknown, Ignorance) to create the economic results we need

OOh Chuffles what have you done with your days.

I initially threw my surgically repaired back by trying to boost Jeff Lowe higher in his wheel chair. Then I still rebuilt his broken electric wheel chair that he depends on.
Yea sittin' on my lazy ass doing no good.

Do you even realize how ugly you come across as being?

Why are you even here? You offer nothing of value.

Does he ever mind being wrong all the time?
Or is he really that delusional?


Everything he has accused me of or tried to label me with is wrong.
But he can't help himself. It almost makes me feel sad for him.

ahh yes Chief I am a hydrocarbon emitter.
For ten years I've done what I can to reduce my greenhouse emissions. I need two vehicles, they are both hybrids because each of them gets better fuel mileage than comparable cars.
I keep my thermostat at 66 degrees in winter, 55 at night and have no air conditioning.
I support infernal combustion engine pollution and fuel economy standards.
I usually cycle or walk 1 - 2 miles in my neighborhood instead of driving.
I take public transport and carpool when I can. I support public transport bond measures. I buy organic fruits and vegetables (no hydrocarbon based pesticides and fertilizers).
I vote for candidates who take Global Warming seriously.
etc etc etc.
My choices define my economics. When large numbers of people make similar choices it affects macroeconomics and can reduce the rate of Global Warming.
What are you doing to reduce Global Warming?

Wholey Shet Dingbat, Pedophilia? Really? Care to prove that in a court of law?
Where the hell do you get off?
I made a comic reference about the Flintstones and now I am a lazy crack smoking meth choking pedophile. You take the cake. Now choke on it.

Come on Chuffles I am waiting for your next Nit Wit isim.




Hey Chuffles you called me a pedophile. That could be grounds for a libel suit. Baseless accusations in print with the intent to cause harm. You are one classy son of a bitch!
Have you had kids? As if there were a woman with low enough self esteem. I have raised three amazing kids. They have never been abused or didled because I kept them away from predatory parasites like you.


And just so you can't pull your usual cowardly act of spew and delete I saved your post for posterity.

Hit a nerve? Hardly. The only thing you can hit is Maggie's Drawers.
Your a libelous fraud.

Chuffles if you don't like it here feel free to leave.
The site would be much improved if the least liked, least appreciated poster was gone.Don't let the inturdnet smack you on the way out.

Thanks HighTraverse this is not beneath even his standards as he has none.
My three kids are awesome. They would be most distressed to hear the libelous lies that The Chief has hurled at me.
If Chuffles thinks I am hard on him he should see what my kids would do to him.
No need for guns just words of truth and he'd be eviscerated.

Appears I hit a nerve Philo.


Good. Glad to see that you do in fact have negative behaviors that you wish to confess.

Hey Chuffles keep it up. This is clear indication that you meant your libel to cause harm.
Classy dude, classy.

You always start out mean, nasty and name calling then cry about all the mean nasty name callers.
