-Comment from a listener:You were talking about the secession by the Southern Sates. If you want to learn the history at length you must read the book “The South was Right” by the twin brothers James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy. I was furious at the US Government abuse of the South and Lincoln wiping his rear end with the US Constitution. I will never have any respect for Lincoln any more, and he used to be my favorite president. Reading the book will give you a constitutional review of that period like no other. The Southern Sates used the same arguments for secession from the United States that the 13 colonies used to secede from England, except that this time they had the US Constitution, which did not existed before the war of independence..
When England granted the independence to the colonies it did so as free independent states, not as the United States. They absolutely had the right to secede then, and still have the right to secede, as well as any state of the union, not just the Souther States. Andy is right, the origins of the war was economic, not slavery-it is all in the book.
By the way it was not a “Civil War” or “War Among the States” It was “The War for Souther Independence” between the United States and the Confederate States, two separate nations since they had already seceded.
According to the book, and I agree, “state Rights died at Appomattox”
I have no dog in this fight since I am a Puertorican.
-A listener asks Andrew to comment on the following articles.They basically talk about the US ending its ban on oil exports, The Saudi’s growing budget deficits and their plan to borrow more money, and the break even point of Shale oil coming down. They indicate that now the US producers can win the “oil war” and OPEC will be hurt more by low oil prices
-Questions from a listener:Regarding how those in the world of financial policy handle things, Andy once said they are like junkies who eternally say “they need just one more hit.” Do co-dependent relationships explain why?
Different Individuals or groups sustain their morally corrupt way of doing things because they depend on each other for survival and are indebted to and threatened by each other.
These co-dependent alliances suggest that the way finance is done cannot be reformed top down, the difficulty of a single one of them changing policy or walking away from the others is greatly mangified. It’s like a house of cards.
Like Michael Corleone in the Godfather, once they get themselves into this system, the obligations and compromises they make along the way mean they aren’t allowed to leave in one piece, and it pays so well that few of them want to.
I’m gradually seeing these complex webs the so-called healthcare and education industries, but could Andy illustrate an example in the financial-political world?
-Questions from a listener:The US is a very wealthy country, with an estimated asset base of 320 Trillion dollars, so a national debt of 20 Trillion dollars is only a small portion of the total asset base. Does this mean that the US can take on even more debt?
Also, he states that the EU’s financial system is on shaky ground, especially in Italy, where the debt is at extremely high levels. Does Andy think that there will be another financial crisis beginning in Europe?
