Thoughts on economics and liberty

Jaggi Vasudev – aka Sadhguru (or Sadguru). Yet another TYPICAL “Hindu” conman.

I’m starting this placeholder post just to track this man. Lots of stuff I’ve come across but not had time to document.

I had made some notes here earlier:  Sadguru’s wisdom – extracted by Rocky Karthik. Rocky rocks!

The brilliant refutation of socialism in 1909 by George B. Hugo

In 1909 a debate occurred in Massachusetts on the topic of socialism as documented in the book, Socialism, the Creed of Despair.

George Hugo refuted socialism. Two extracts:

SUMMARY OF WHY SOCIALISM CAN’T WORK

Socialism is a menace to modern civilization. Why ?
(1) Because it is a step backward,—retrogression.
(2) It would destroy man’s power of individual choice.
(3) It would relieve man from the personal responsibility and moral obligation which he owes his fellow-man.
(4) It would reduce man to the status of an automaton.
(5) It would destroy Free Will, the foundation of moral accountability to God. [Applause.]
(6) Because it is an economic fallacy and a spiritual delusion.

TWENTY QUESTIONS THAT REFUTE SOCIALISM

And now, Mr. Carey, I have prepared twenty questions that I want to ask you. I don’t expect that you are going to remember them, so I have put them on cards, numbered from one to twenty, and I don’t propose that you shall dodge them.
(1) How will the Co-operative Commonwealth determine the income of each worker?
(2) ‘Will each worker, skilled or unskilled, receive the same income?
(3) If all receive the same rate of compensation, will not such a system forever rob the superior workers of a part of their superior ability?
(4) And will not this conflict with the oft-repeated assertion of Socialists that the workers will receive the full product of their toil?
(5) If each worker should receive the full product of his toil, who will support the vast horde of non-productive workers?
(6) And, if each worker received the full product of his toil, some will have large incomes, others small; and will not this be economic inequality?
(7) As the capabilities of the workers will differ under Socialism, just as they now differ in our socialistic public school system, how and in what way will it be possible to determine the true value of each worker’s toil?
(8) How much more should a college professor receive than a railway brakeman?
(9) If we are to reduce the working time to four hours per day under Socialism, as Socialists assert, will it not require the services of 1,500,000 more railway workers to perform the same service that 1,300,000 now perform? And will not this cost the nation $800,000,000 to $1,000,000,000 annually more than the present labor cost for our transportation?
(10) Would not coal and everything else cost double if we reduced the working time to four hours a day?
(11) Then how about the non-productive workers,—i.e., the strictly government officials? Will it not require the service of a million boards of arbitration and several million book-keepers to keep track of the hours, income, skill, etc., of each worker, in order to determine whether the Socialist nation is robbing somebody or paying too much to somebody? And who but the workers, the real toilers, will pay all these bills ?
(12) If we are now able to produce only $650 per worker per year by working eight to ten hours per day, how will we produce $2,000 per worker per year by working four hours per day? How are you Socialists going to get possession of all the land, railroads, business blocks, church and school properties, machinery, etc.? Will the Socialists confiscate or purchase all capital now used in production and exchange?
(13) Will the man who invents a machine worth millions to society be paid a life income (a new form of royalty) or how will he be rewarded?
(14) Is it not true that of the 1,500 million people on earth no two are alike? One man is a success, the other a failure. One is industrious, the other a spendthrift. One sober, the other a drunkard. Will the industrious, sober, and saving man be willing to divide with and help to support the lazy man, the drunkard, and the spendthrift ?
(15) What will you Socialists do with the farming lands and the five million owners of these lands? Will you divide the land into five, ten, or fifty acre tracts and parcel it out to each farmer, and will each farmer be compelled to account to the State for what he raises? Will the intelligent farmer receive the same income as the ignorant farmer? Will an account be kept of what each farmer produces and the quality ? If so, will it not require an army of expert book-keepers to see that each farmer gets the full reward of his labor ? Or will the Socialist State farm the lands in large tracts, with Socialist farm bosses and Socialist farm hands?’
And which will you be, Mr. Carey, a boss or a farm hand? [Laughter and applause.]
(16) As farmers now work with the best machinery and produce an average of $700 per capita per year, will it not require the services of twice as many farmers to produce the same amount of farm wealth if we reduce the working time one-half ? Or will not food cost double what it now costs?
(17) Will the single man be compelled to labor as many hours as a married man with six children, or how will you arrange this?
(18) If the single man had less work, that is a soft snap” compared with the family man, would not most men desire to remain single? And would not this policy destroy the family, the best institution known to the human race?
(19) Will the great inventor, the great writer, and the great organizer be rewarded for their superior service to society, and who will determine what and how much such reward should be? If highly rewarded, will you not soon produce the same economic inequality that now exists? Or, if all are to be placed on the same equality,—and that is just what Socialism will do,—will it not destroy all ambition, remove all incentive? Will not the race degenerate?
(20) Is not Socialism, after all, a fantastic dream, utterly impossible and impracticable? And can any sane man suppose that the great mass of the sane men will ever vote for such a system? [Applause.]

====LETTER==== {Another copy}

*Please only sign if you are a doctor! Open letter from Australian doctors to Australian federal and state governments re. coronavirus COVID19 emergency response

To: Australian Prime Minister Hon. Scott Morrison MP
CC: Australian Health Minister Hon Greg Hunt MP, Australian Chief Medical Officer Dr Brendan Murphy, State Premiers and Health MinistersTuesday 17th March 2020Dear Prime MinisterWe, the undersigned Australian medical doctors, are writing to you today because of our grave concern regarding the threat that novel Coronavirus 19 (COVID19) represents to the lives of Australians. We believe that Australian federal and state governments can avert disaster by heeding the lessons of other countries.This means:

1. Immediately implementing the strict measures of lockdown and social distancing that have been shown to be effective at slowing the spread of COVID19 and,
2. Preparing our health systems for a surge of COVID19 and critically ill patients.

Taken together, these measures would reduce the numbers and presentation rate of COVID19 patients and allow our health system to cope.

International experience is that the COVID19 virus behaves in a relatively predictable way with the number of cases doubling every 3-5 days before strict lockdown and social distancing measures are implemented. Data from China, Europe and now Australia support this assertion. Exponential growth of this kind leads to relatively small numbers of infected patients to become large numbers at first slowly and then very, very quickly.

On current growth rates the 370 cases in Australia today will be 750 on Friday, 1500 on Tuesday next week, 3000 next Saturday, 6000 on the 1st of April and 12 000 by the 4th of April. This is less than 3 weeks from now and puts us in a worse position than Italy is currently in. Experience from China and Italy has also shown us that social distancing changes implemented today will take 2 weeks to show an effect on the numbers of diagnosed new cases due to the lag between initial contact and development of severe disease. We are especially concerned about impacts on Indigenous communities given their high rates of pre-existing illnesses and limited health infrastructure.

While we applaud the measures that have been taken by Australian authorities so far we know that they are not enough. The Italian government believed that they were acting decisively with their first local lockdowns at just 21 confirmed national cases, far lower than the current rates in Australia. Many of us are in contact with colleagues in Italy, Spain and France and they are begging us to learn from their mistakes.

The Italian authorities are reporting much higher rates of critical illness in their population than reported in Wuhan, China. This is likely related to an older population demographic with more pre existing illnesses. Australia is much more similar to Italy than Wuhan in this respect. Patients with critical COVID19 illness require admission to an intensive care unit for respiratory support and require highly specialised staff, equipment and locations, all scarce resources that cannot be easily increased. The Italian region of Lombardy which is currently hardest hit by COVID19, is one of the richest areas in Europe with a health system equal to that of Australia’s. Our colleagues there have made herculean efforts to increase their capacity to care for critically ill COVID19 patients. Despite their efforts their systems are completely overwhelmed with corresponding very high death rates and inability to provide intensive care to previously healthy seventy year olds. They describe their situation as like being “in a war zone.” With access to intensive care the death rate from COVID19 is likely less than 1%, but in an overwhelmed system without access to intensive care the death rate approaches 4%. Today, Italy has reported over 2100 deaths.

Fortunately, experience shows that COVID19 transmission rates can be significantly reduced if we heed the lessons of other countries. Chinese provinces outside Wuhan are excellent examples of this, as are Singapore, Korea and Taiwan. Widespread economic lockdown and social distancing are what is required. Transmission still occurs but the number of severely ill people remains within the capacity of our health system to treat them. The international experience has been that this decision cannot be averted, only delayed, and that the cost of delay in economic and human terms is higher than the cost of acting early and decisively. Furthermore, due to their experience with SARS, countries like Singapore can teach us valuable lessons about minimising economic effects from such epidemics.

Our second request is that urgent preparations are made to prepare our health systems for an unprecedented surge of COVID19 infected and critically ill patients. Such measures include an immediate reduction in elective work, increased frequency and intensity of hospital cleaning, measures to temporarily increase intensive care capacity and increasing personal protective equipment for staff.

With these immediate measures, Australian doctors and health care workers stand ready with their communities to face COVID19.

Sincerely

An Open Letter from Australian Economists on Tradeoffs During the COVID-19 Crisis

19 April 2020

Dear Prime Minister and Members of the National Cabinet:

The undersigned economists have witnessed and participated in the public debate about when to relax social-distancing measures in Australia. Some commentators have expressed the view that there is a trade-off between the public health and economic aspects of the crisis. We, as economists, believe this is a false distinction.

We cannot have a functioning economy unless we first comprehensively address the public health crisis. The measures put in place in Australia, at the border and within the states and territories, have reduced the number of new infections. This has put Australia in an enviable position compared to other countries, and we must not squander that success.

We recognise that the measures taken to date have come at a cost to economic activity and jobs, but believe these are far outweighed by the lives saved and the avoided economic damage due to an unmitigated contagion. We believe that strong fiscal measures are a much better way to offset these economic costs than prematurely loosening restrictions.

As has been foreshadowed in your public remarks, our borders will need to remain under tight control for an extended period. It is vital to keep social-distancing measures in place until the number of infections is very low, our testing capacity is expanded well beyond its already comparatively high level, and widespread contact tracing is available.

A second-wave outbreak would be extremely damaging to the economy, in addition to involving tragic and unnecessary loss of life.

Sincerely,
