(Nick) Dublin, NH passes new ordinance prohibiting drug paraphernalia (Matt) Quote of the week “The socialist movement takes great pains to circulate frequently new labels for its ideally constructed state. Each worn-out label is replaced by another which raises hopes of an ultimate solution of the insoluble basic problem of Socialism—until it becomes obvious that nothing has been changed but the name. The most recent slogan is ‘State Capitalism.' It is not commonly realized that this covers nothing more than what used to be called Planned Economy and State Socialism, and that State Capitalism, Planned Economy, and State Socialism diverge only in non-essentials from the ‘classic’ ideal of egalitarian Socialism.” - Ludwig Von Mises Special Segment Crypto investing with Chris Rockwell The Big Question The Big Question: Is this the Chinese Century – or will China stall out like Japan did in the '80s?
