Why Not!

Yielding to Command Attributes On Demand

Pop media spends a lot of time (and sells a lot of advertising) telling us how popular consent always yields to command authority. While it is always explaining “why” with journalistic objectivity (which is, essentially, “how”), we are always wondering “why not!”

(I can’t help but notice how “being objective” is a work of art. It is not intended to imitate life, but describe and explain what it really is, which is a work of art.)

When pop analysts explain why things happen, a lot of what we need to know is how it works. Since a lot of economic events that determine how markets work is in the dark, analysts don’t know how, but speculate why. So, do businesses create jobs? If not…why not!

Let’s stop begging the question and find out.

How much evidence do we need to answer the question?

F(t,T) = S(t)\times (1+r)^{(T-t)} is a pretty dark answer to the question. It’s so abstract that it makes “Waiting for Godot” look like realism.

Dark markets, remember, are a means of hedging and speculating at the same time. The massive detriment of the Great Recession, and the non-recovery recovery we’re stuck in, can be attributed to dark markets. It’s what brought AIG down, remember, betting against the risk being hedged (hoarded–“naturally monopolized”–to make it more efficient), creating an arbitrage argument with the answer being declining demand and job destruction.

Understand that the people creating the argument “F(t,T) = S(t)\times (1+r)^{(T-t)}” say it is a work of art that imitates life. It predicts the future, existing without proper attribution to motive because derivative value measures causes unknown.

What we want to be (and why not!) is not the question, it is the answer. What we are, inevitably, is always the answer with confirmed conformity.
