The Fed’s Other Mandate: Facilitating and Regulating Wage Slavery
Seminar

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

Henry George and the Money Question
Seminar

HENRY GEORGE AND THE MONEY QUESTION


There’s a widely held belief that George’s views on money were not well developed, that he waited until his last book to really delve into that topic, and left it, sadly, unfinished. However, monetary scholar Stephen Zarlenga contends that by 1884, George already had a very advanced understanding of how money works and that it is still relevant today. In this webinar, Dr. Marty Rowland will summarize Zarlenga’s findings on money, demonstrating that George spoke often about money, even in earlier books, including Social Problems, Protection and Free Trade, and in his newspaper, The Standard.

McGirt v. Oklahoma: Unraveling the Impact on Tribal Economics and Sovereignty
Seminar

MCGIRT V. OKLAHOMA: UNRAVELING THE IMPACT ON TRIBAL ECONOMICS AND SOVEREIGNTY


The US Supreme Court’s landmark decision in McGirt v. Oklahoma (2020) potentially reorders relationships between tribal nations and US States. While limited to criminal jurisdiction in specific areas, the overheated reaction on the part of state officials coupled with the tribes’ cautious yet firm assertions of sovereignty suggests more than what first meets the eye.

In this lecture, Dr. Hosmer considers tribal economics and sovereignty through two standpoints: first, the growth of scholarly interest in economic change inside and around Indigenous nations; and second, the dramatic growth and transformation of tribal economies. Sign up now to learn the specifics of each standpoint and explore the intricate details in this thought-provoking lecture!

Brian Hosmer is a senior scholar in American Indian history and studies. His work pivots around intersections between economic change and tribal nationhood in the 20th century. His most important publications include: American Indians in the MarketplaceNative PathwaysTribal Worlds, and American Indians and the Legacy of Harry S. Truman. For several years he directed the Newberry Library’s celebrated D’Arcy McNickle Center for Native and Indigenous Studies.  He currently serves as Head of the Department of History at Oklahoma State University.

We will use semantic analysis in order to understand which outcomes can or cannot happen, based on observable data.

The instructor, Dr. W. E. Perry, has long been engaged in developing the tools of semantic analysis. He previously gave a lecture series on the history of credit at the Henry George School.
