    Are hedge fund managers criminals when they inflict economic harm?

    Hedge funds are not criminal under our system of laws, no matter how much harm they cause. When they collapse companies or even nations, they are considered agents of the "invisible hand" (Adam...

    Do hedge funds wage war?

    Is it war when speculators from western nations damage a foreign nation for their personal profit? It's not conventional war, as we know it in the post-Westphalian order. Perhaps more like Drake...

    Peak Oil and the 1970's

    I am not aware of any major energy-related institution that says global oil production will not peak. It's like death, the question is when. Due to lack of knowledge about reserves in the Middle...
