Big Tech Versus Big Politics

Structural solutions and shortcuts are available to resolve our nation's impasse with overzealous technology companies. Cures I have been prescribing for twelve years. It is never too late to get real.

Relativity For Dummies

Relativity is easy to understand. So, let me explain its most rudimentary form determining the evolution of (almost) everything in the universe, as discovered by Albert Einstein one-hundred years ago.

A New Norm Comes From The Top

Katy Perry for President, was my first thought when I heard the celebrity singer in an interview with Howard Stern demand a reprioritization of life around the principles of nature. Let me explain how. Go, Katy! You already look much better than Kanye West!

In this interview, I highlight how the coronavirus has issued a stern warning we must remodel our financial systems after nature's principles, so as to improve human adaptability to nature's entropy.

Positive, The Most Negative Word Of 2020

A real optimist is a cynical realist, determined we can, must, and shall do better than submit to the apathy of false positivity. We can build a magnificent systemic response to nature's entropy.

Sean Penn Is A Good Man

I like Sean Penn for his stance on the meaning of life, his acting, and the work he is doing to pick-up the slack on pandemic relief. Authentic curiosity and empathy for the human condition driving his efforts. Hats off.

Climate Change Is No Hoax

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not.

A New Truth, Role, And Goal For Humanity

Life, if properly normalized, is beautiful and remarkably simple. Let’s make it so.

What Is Sustainable Development?

Sustainability is an evolutionary oxymoron, perpetuated by cheap karma.

Flying temperatures

Air travel is uncomfortable no matter what class you fly. In-cabin temperatures frequently reach 80F on major airlines. I measured it.

The Jobs Snobs

The role of government is not to create jobs, but to facilitate a fair exchange of collective merit.

Kid Rocks Agrees With My Stance On iTunes

Apparently, Kid Rock agrees with my stance on iTunes.

Climate Change Is Unsolvable

President Trump and Joe Biden, in the run-up to the Presidential election, have staked out dueling positions on the climate, suggesting voters to either care (the democratic stance, pretending to know) or not care (republican stance, oblivious to nature's evolution) about our environment. Both are wrong.

Entropy For Dummies

Entropy is the irreversible process subjected to the evolution of all objects, animate and inanimate, in our universe. A process perhaps best visualized by the explosion of fireworks.

WTF Are You Doing?

What are we doing on this planet? What is the meaning of life? And what are you, yes you, contributing to the longevity of the human species, including improving the prospects of your children's children? Let me break a few egg-shells humanity is used to walking on, and offer a question we should all be able to answer.

Why Democracies Fail Or Succeed

A democracy must be subjugated to evolutionary first-principles to improve humanity.

How To Remove The Systemic Risk Of Our Economy

To remove the systemic risk of our economy we need to create a marketplace in which the meritocracy of ideas meets with as few financial derivatives as possible.

The Only War Worth Fighting

The only war we need to fight - right now - is aimed to strengthen the renewal of all of mankind.

The Problem With Venture: No True Alpha And No True North

No one should be surprised that venture capital is not performing. For the public is still yearning for technology to substantially improve their lives.

Alpha Is An Unstoppable Force Of Nature

We teach financiers how to tune their financial instruments to reap the rewards of the expansion of alpha as a predictable natural phenomenon.

The New Job Of Finance

Finance can and must play a new and prominent role in the improving adaptability of humanity to nature.

How Technology Must Grow Up

Technology's immature operating systems yield more oligarchic governance than its "analog" precedent. With the pageantry of populism blissfully cheering on the public's favorite new toy.

Why VC Is Such A Bad Date

No date with a prospective life-partner would pass muster if it behaved like venture capitalists treat entrepreneurs.

Why And How to Develop Foresight

Human foresight, as the improving proxy to nature's hindsight, is the impetus to innovation responsible for the expanding fractal of human ingenuity and capacity.

The Problem Is Not Our Economy, But Our Lies

We fail because we lie about our evolutionary responsibility as a species.

What Is The Difference Between Private Equity And Venture Capital?

As different as foresight and hindsight are. Same asset-management bucket, completely different risk profiles, and then some.

The Trap Of “Capital Efficiency”

Capital Efficiency is a trap of loan-shark proportion. Expect it to be deployed feverishly by investors out to protect the downside of excessive portfolio diversification.

Voting Is For Idiots

I beg you not to vote, if you, like most Americans, are woke enough to realize a choice for either party leads to nothing but a preference for the bifurcated road to the slaughterhouse of human ingenuity, expansion, and longevity.

One Single, Simple, And All-Encompassing Goal For Humanity

I am reducing the 17 so-called Sustainable Development Goals of The United Nations to just 1, but not before explaining how flawed those attempts are. The change humanity can depend on comes from the discovery of a new and higher normalization of truth derived from the only truth that matters; nature's truth.

Litmus Reductio, Three Things To Comprehend As Admission To Govern

I cannot stress enough the importance of the proper pedigree in government, for, in the words of Albert Einstein, the theory you are responsible for developing, determines what humanity can discover. A trust that should be earned not given.

On Transparency In Finance

Transparency is a rule, a consequence, not the goal of finance. A humanitarian goal of finance in dire need of instilling on its anointed operators.

Why ESG Is A Dangerous Religion

Why is it, that a thesis of finance eleven times the size of production does not get vetted and scrutinized?

The Entropy Of Sustainable Finance

I highlight eight major reasons why sustainability is a rebel without an evolutionary cause.

Facebook, L’Enfant Terrible

Facebook is like an infant with parents strung out on drugs, the child sadly left to its own devices. Courtesy of freedom detached from paradoxical rules, the epitome of unfreedom. I blame the child's parents, mostly, as in all cases where the parents are not keeping a watchful eye over the children they proclaim to love so much. Oh, how I have seen this scenario unfold before.

A Bose NC700 Redemption Song

Credit where credit is due from a new firmware update breathing new life into Bose's over-the-ear active noise-canceling headphones released last year.

Why Technology Cannot Arbitrate Or Build Systems Of Arbitrage

A simple, yet prime, example of why technology is bad for humanity.

Dauphin Summers

Economists, like Larry Summers, have a tendency to make shit up after a threat appeared unexpectedly in their rear-view mirror, for their modus-operandi is to deploy an extrapolation of hindsight sold as foresight to break the norm. Be forewarned, as an expert on ill-conceived consequences is merely a rebel without a cause.

Four Things To Not Change The World

Out come the charlatans of change vying to change the world. Do not be fooled by the old resold as new.

I Do Not Know What Evolutionary Merit Is But It Sure As Hell Sounds Like Eugenics

I explain the concept of evolutionary merit referencing the integrity of bold federal legislation needed to improve the excellence of humanity.

As I Predicted: Respect Our Values Or Expect Regulations

Mark Zuckerberg could have saved a lot of money and gained respect if he had sought my advisory.

Accelerating Infinite Regression In Asset Management

As I explain in The Evolution of Evolution, when humanity merely evolves downstream, from an existing normalization of truth, get ready for infinite regression. That is my stern warning to Dutch funds, APG and PGGM, promoting an AI-driven investment platform for asset-owners.

Family Offices Are Tired Of Conferences – Something Else Is Needed

Something else is needed indeed, a unique investment thesis that makes your arbitrage as different as the families you represent. Dare to be different, or go home.

Friend Or Foe Of Private Equity

Merely to question PE performance is considered heresy, a charge that should be reversed to put a religion of finance on notice to change immediately and fundamentally. We have come to the rescue.

The Private Equity Malaise

It is time for asset managers to “come to Jesus” and face a new evolutionary reality of asset management.

I Told You So: India Bans 59 Apps

I warned technology companies five years ago. The days are numbered thinking you can sell the equivalent of sugar-water to the world and expect to get away with spawning yet another mind-numbing addiction that accelerates an anthropogenic cascade.

Apple Makes Me Yawn

Nothing in this announcement demonstrates how Apple improves the human condition, the gist of the announcement being "what took you so long?"

Breaking News: Apple’s Tim Cook Leaving To Head Up Boar’s Head

Since the possibility of news is big business, I hereby launch my own.
