The Presidency of Warren Harding, (1921 to 1923), is often considered unremarkable. Yet during his term Harding worked for equality, freedom, competition, and accountability. He noted “The Constitution contemplates no class and recognizes no group”. Harding freed hundreds of political prisoners, including Eugene Debs, the labor leader imprisoned for speaking out against United States involvement in World War I. Vowing to “get government out of business and business into government” he placed the Federal government on a budget. Harding promoted cooperation among people and competition between businesses. He introduced legislation that provided federal funding for maternity and child care.

In tonight’s seminar Tom Ballou evaluates the presidency of Warren G. Harding and develops a template for grading presidents, past, present, and future.

    THE FED’S OTHER MANDATE: FACILITATING AND REGULATING WAGE SLAVERY


    This talk continues our analysis of macroeconomics begun in January with our lecture “The Fed Has Lost Control of the Money Supply.” Just as the previous talk explored emergent properties in the Fed’s management of the money supply which were evident to a Semantic Analyst but were not otherwise perceived by conventional macroeconomics, this talk will focus on similar emergent properties of the Fed’s efforts to control unemployment.

    The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis to help better understand determinism, causality, and the emergence of new properties from a variety of data sources.

    Instructor: Dr. W. E. Perry
