Inflation by jimgon (4.00 / 1) #1 Mon Apr 29, 2019 at 06:44:13 AM EST
As someone with fixed dollar debts with fixed interest rates I would not mind some inflation if it included wage inflation. Unfortunately the current norm of wages seems to be deflationary in order to prevent deterioration of operating margin in publicly listed corporations. If my wages were tied to stock prices or I were a creditor invested in fixed debts then I would be aghast at the very idea of inflation.

Two Years Before the Mast by ana (4.00 / 3) #2 Mon Apr 29, 2019 at 09:55:28 AM EST
So it turns out Richard Henry Dana Jr. returned to law school after his 2 years as a common sailor, and spent much of his career lawyering for common sailors against the shipping magnates. He and his father were both founding members of the church I attended in Boston. The family burial plot is right in the corner of the church yard near Harvard Square.

Every time the psalm came around and we'd chant, "The same stone which the builders refused / is become the headstone in the corner", I thought of that headstone in the corner...

I made the "mistake" of reading that before For Whom the Bell Tolls. It made the Hemmingway read like romanticised bullshit. I haven't read any Hemmingway since.

I'll always remember the bit where the doctor tells him "A man who is shot in the neck and lives is the luckiest man alive" "I couldn't help thinking that it would be even luckier not to have been shot at all" (or something like that).
