From comments section on this blog. Someone asked me if Humphreys was a Jew.
Humphreys isn’t Jewish, but he comes across akin to some of the hyper-incompetent Jews that I have been talking about lately, because he is drastically over-promoted. One wonders who is pulling his strings. He is not currently employed as an economist. He has no capacity for serious work in economics. Rather he is employed as a sort of displaced Barrister/Lobbyist/Quisling. Displaced in that he is promoted as an economist, but works as a Barrister/Lobbyist/Quisling. Someone gave him the resources to start a Libertarian party, and someone is employing him to champion sellout positions from the wrong side of the fence. The best way to control the public is to control both sides of the debate of the public.
He’s no Jew but his background is somewhat akin to that of Obama, aka Bari Shabazz, aka Barry Soetoro. Actually the parallels are incredible and if his background were any more dodgy he would soon be running for President of the USA. Like Obama he is a queer, but at one time was in a somewhat cultish hard-core religious environment. Like Obama he has barely needed to work a day in his life.
He’s certainly the dodgiest character I’ve ever met in the flesh. He somehow managed to get these huge loans after working only a short time in the public service. This at a time when no-one had any idea that the Reserve Bank and Treasury, were going to continue the housing boom beyond all reason. On this basis he allegedly didn’t need to work, and would spend all this time in South East Asia, doing nothing, and writing about doing nothing.
Like Obama he’s queer, and like Obama, he feels ashamed of being queer thanks to the time in a pressure-cooker religious environment. So he hangs out in South East Asia, hiding his shame, doing nothing, and writing about doing nothing.
But this layabout somehow gets all these doors open for him, though under normal circumstances, everyone ought to simply recognise him as an itinerant loafer. One wonders who it was that recognised his sort of LEGAL PROSECUTER FOR HIRE talent. He has a talent, not so much for debating, but for hijacking debate.
I’ve got to hand it to him, insofar as he managed to find such high quality people in order to found this libertarian party, so he could betray liberty from:
1. His position of being an insider
2. From the cache of him being the founder of Australia’s only Libertarian political party
3. From his total control of this libertarian parties unofficial blog.
I’ve had my arguments with Taya (spelt Terje) but there is no question that the people that John found to be the initial inner core, of Australias only Libertarian party ….. were a quality bunch. But if John is merely working for some other crowd, so that both sides of any issue can be controlled, then he may well have been told who were the likely lads he ought to get in contact with, as he moved about like some sort of hobo.
With Johns surface and shallow understanding of economic life, he is easy to dupe with ideas like “Human Capital” and this sort of confusion in terminology. You have capital. You have humans. Capital is largely machines (including vehicles) buildings, and physical structures associated with investments ….. (like all those structures associated with a mining operation for example.) For the most part human capital is merely the capacity of people to operate the machines, and work within a team. And as well human capital would plausibly be certain cultural and management norms to do with how to run a shift, or an office. So this talk of human capital is mostly bullshit.
But nonetheless John is the frontman, for something called “The Human Capital Project.” This is a project which as one of its unfortunate side effects (OR MORE LIKELY ITS MAIN AGENDA is to prepare developing countries for the bankers to rape, once these formerly poor countries, have developed enough wealth, in order for the raping to begin. That is a pretty important project for the banking elite to have on the fly. They cannot yet control China. They have all but pack-raped the US and the EU, and they won’t be able to squeeze blood out of these people forever.
What must be understood is that the fractional reserve rape of a country can come as soon as that country has created enough wealth to be raped. So for example the Japanese were creating enormous amounts of wealth in the 50′s, 60′s and 70′s and then they were gang-raped by fractional reserve in the 80′s. This is why fractional reserve excess and wealth always have a one-to-one correlation, when we look back into deep history. Some people see this one-to-one correlation, and quite reasonably (on a superficial research level) wind up thinking that the fractional reserve created that wealth. But this is nonsense. As soon as the wealth is extensive enough the rape can begin. So the shadow-government, must now be eyeing India and South East Asia, and salivating.
Now then John Humphreys shows up in the office of dusky-skinned big shots, and he’s this itinerant layabout. He’s WHITEY. Whiter than white. Some of these old guys still remember the Empire for fucksakes. And somehow, the story goes, that John-the-whitey Humphreys, managed to get backing and funding for this “human capital project” to put third-world kids into bondage for their education.
This ludicrously anti-economic scheme, is not anything to do with “human-capital” even as totally confused as that conception is. The loans aren’t to train kids how to be electricians, and give them the equipment, with zero-interest loans, in order to be able to get to work as soon as they are trained up. No no that is not what this is about. You need to know the economics-institutional reality to understand the true nature of this human ….. capital …. project …. so fucking called.
There are two thieves in our lives, and therefore two schools of economics, to cater for these thieves. The public servants are catered for by the Keynesians, the Fractional-Reservist thieves are catered for by Theoclassical economics.
The brilliance (from a wrecking point of view) of the Humphreys plan is to train these kids up to cater for the Fractional-Reservist thieves AND THEN MAKE THEM PUBLIC SERVANTS.
You must understand that for this scheme to have gotten off the ground, the kids must be virtually guaranteed a job in the public service, if they are to pay back their loans. But public servant jobs, more typically, in third world countries, go to the kids of powerfully connected families. They go to the upper class. So imagine anyone going to see these hard-nosed cronyists in third world countries and asking for money? I mean its such a stupid scheme on its face, that you would be excoriated immediately for wasting the patrician’s time. So this isn’t by any means coming from this wandering loafer. If whitey showed up to talk to these millionaires, he would be looked upon as an upstart, neocolonialist wanker. A white, know-nothing, whose done nothing, living abroad, swanning around, simply could not try this on, on his own bat. He’s a frontman. And particularly since its such a stupid scheme.
Supposing you go to these kids to offer scholarships to study Theoclassical economics. These scholarships in the form of loans. But the government needs only so many public servants. And they need very fucking few economists. So where is the idea that these kids will be employed, just because they are in on John’s scheme? And if its John’s scheme, rather than him being some loafer, and frontman, why is it that he gets to start it, and not have to work around the clock, maintaining its momentum? Supposing he really had a mission, to improve economic understanding in Bhutan or somewhere? Why is he not slaving at it, like the chicken-man in “The Ugly American”* rather than mucking about at the pool, joining MOVEMBER and constantly updating his online diary where he pretends not to be the cable-guy in terms of his lack of socialisation.
He’s the dodgiest fellow I’ve ever met in person no question. You would have to have known Julian Assange or Barry Soetoro, to find someone who could compete for dodginess.
