A couple months ago I was hired by a person who shall remain anonymous. He was instrumental in the launching of a reasonably notable crypto-currency and wanted to know what its value was. It was the classic meeting of the worlds of economics and technology where the tech gurus wanted to know precisely what was the value of the monster they created, so they enlist the help of clueless schmoes economists like me to do so.
This presented a problem to me because unlike say, a bond, a stock, or a rental property, currencies (crypto or not) do ... Captain Capitalism

Must leftist politics infect EVERYTHING? Childhood during the 80's. Nyquil influenced dreams. Boxing Ed Latimore. "Meal penalty" and union stupidity. Millennials can't hammer nails. Millennials can't use analog clocks. Late night talk shows pay for politics.
In this pre-release excerpt from the upcoming podcast I ask the democrats and socialists of the world if it is possible to NOT put politics, SJWing, and virtue signaling into EVERYTHING, especially kids' childhoods.
I was on The Hanging Chads Podcast where among many other things we talked about how, in an insane world, one's primary goal should be to attain sanity, serenity, and peace. Below is an excerpt if you just want to sample it.
They also interviewed Rollo Tomassi and were "thiiiiiisssss close" to interviewing Jenna Jameson. They are better than the average podcast and I would strongly recommend giving them a shot.
Are per a request from Asshole Consulting, Cappy tries to apply some kind of logical methodology to an impossible question: which generation is the worst in America today? Though Cappy's loathing for the Baby Boomers is no secret, he loathes them all quite equally, but when you look at some data and public behavior a clear "victor" emerges.
I had an interesting request at Asshole Consulting. The client wanted my opinion on Islamic finance and economics. The economics part was interesting because there is (what I believe) to be a politically/religiously motivated force on the part of Muslims to use "economics" as a means to spread Islam. The handful of Muslim scholars/economists who advocate "Islamic economics" have used the financial crisis as a means to leverage Islam into economics, claiming western/capitalistic economics has failed, but communism has also failed, thus giving rise to demand for a "third alternative." In the video I analyze their claims of this ... Captain Capitalism

I did an interview with David Barnett who is a sponsor of my show. Yes, it is a commercial of sorts, but I wanted to get him on because (not only did he pay me), but there are many of you who are aspiring entrepreneurs and you may be looking to entrepreneurship as a means of retirement. Also, most of you are aware of the overvalued stock market and purchasing or investing in small, privately held companies (as opposed to large, publicly traded ones) may provide higher returns.
I certainly plug his services, but 90% of the interview ... Captain Capitalism

"By all means. Breed, have kids, much like you "have an SUV." Outsource them to daycare like you do your SUV to the dealer. But when your kid has no attachment, loyalty, love, or respect for you, and is more than happy to ditch you off in a cheap government nursing home facility and NEVER visits you, I'd love to see the night-time advanced MBA course that solves that problem."
As I age and see more of not only my generation of men, but other generations travel down the path of life, I have realized that 'being nice' and trying to provide everything for your wife leads to her being spoiled and entitled. People (men included) if spoiled rotten will end up becoming spoiled rotten and so you need to ensure that everybody in the relationship faces, suffers, and endures what is required to support oneself. Any shielding or subsidizing people from these hardships, even if out of love, results in a slow but inevitable entitlement that is hard to ... Captain Capitalism

Without sounding like a completely spoiled, arrogant asshole, the largest hurdle I face in my life is what I like to call "The Impossible Trifecta." This "Impossible Trifecta" includes an individual who;
1. Has the time 2. Has the money 3. Has the stamina
to keep up with me.
Nobody to date does.
And at best, people have at most two out of the three.
You have an old man who is retired, has the time... Captain Capitalism

In this one topic podcast, Cappy reads from an article from The Guardian about American adjunct professors, how they're poor, some homeless, and others even desperate enough to resort to prostitution.
The article and the podcast are ABSOLUTELY MUST listening and reading in that it highlights everything wrong with leftism, socialism, and the consequences of ignoring reality and making these things your religion. All (not some) ALL of the professors highlighted are middle aged+ women, with completely worthless degrees who swallowed whole the leftist indoctrination that all that mattered in the world was what THEY wanted. ...
