You, Your Investments & Isaac Newton's 3rd Law

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

01:07 - 07:12 - Issac Newton's 3rd law states "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction". We have seen this physical law govern the investing world when for example the dot-com bubble rose spectacularily in 4 years to its highs, then reversed and collapsed all the way back to its starting point three years later. Anticipating when a major trend is going to change is arguably the underlying factor determining profits and losses. Newtons 3rd law is also applicable to to society in general, and with the rise in societal extremism the only thing we can count on is that there will be an equal and opposite reaction. The question? How will that reaction manifest.

Defying Common Sense

The Wynne Government's raising of the minimum wage has gotten restaurateurs nervous, so nervous Wynne is now hinting at Government relief for restaurant owners as the province prepares to increase the minimum wage. It begs the question - if raising the minimum wage is supposed to be good for the economy, why would government need to provide relief?

The Stairway To Bureaucracy Heaven

Wasteful spending is no longer definable along with the news that human initiative is no longer allowed. Whether it a city ripping down $550 resident donated stairs in a park so that it can be replaced by a set worth between $65,000 - $150,000, or requiriing children and their parents to pay a fee and sign 3 page legal documents to open a lemonade stand, the incentive to sit back and just let Government run wild through our society is becoming compelling.

The Next Expansion of the Nanny State

Guaranteed income is coming to the front burner of public policy in Canada. Free money and the promise of something for nothing will further blind us to the need to address the fundamental changes required to meet the employment challenges our children face.

One of The Most Divisive Decisions in Recent Memory

That was a quick $10.5 million dollars that the Trudeau Government slipped into Omar Kadhr's back pocket on America's July 4th Birthday. The backlash has many facets but the most blatant is that Kadhr is getting $10.5 miilion and an apology from the Canadian government for admittedly killing an American soldier while fignting as an Afghani. Worse the family of the dead US Soldier Canadian citizen Kadhr killed got zero from Canada. That $10.5 Million tax dollars is also more money than has ever been paid to a Canadian soldier in history.

Experience The Future

0:47 - 6:56

This week McDonalds announced it is going to replace 2500 cashiers with self-ordering kiosks. Last week Amazon's new "Just Walk Out Technology" eliminates cashiers, sales people, shelf stockers and other low wage jobs. Obviously the future is here now, and if we don't massively re-think how we educate our children, not many of them are going to be able to get a job. Sadly our educational establishment are ignoring the necessity to change at a time when change is happening faster than any other time in human history. Bottom line, if we don't change how we educate our children we are inviting social unrest.
