Have We Reached Peak Apple?

Submitted by Omid Malekan via OmidMalekan.com,

Technological change often comes faster than what the people in it's thrall can predict. It wasn't that long ago when you and everyone else you knew were probably using AOL Instant Messenger, around the same time that dude, you were getting a Dell. Then one day you weren't. Blackberrys used to be so popular that "to bbm" someone made it into the dictionary, but then the devices all but disappeared. These inflection points are seldom based on the companies failing their customers, but rather because consumers simply moved on.

Apple's success in the past year with the iPhone 6 has been so spectacular that it's hard not to assume it will go on. Unfortunately that's usually when the turn starts, without anyone noticing. To question whether the iPhone's cultural and economic dominance is peaking is not to say that one of its competitors will overtake it, as It wasn't MSN Messenger or Hewlett Packard that took down the major players of their day, but rather their customers' apathy. Apple now stands at the same precipice.

The first threat to the iPhone's ongoing success is the iPhone&rsqu ...

Why The Greeks Should Repudiate Their Government's Debt

Submitted by Simon Wilson via The Mises Institute,

In apportioning blame for the Greek government debt crisis, it would be difficult not to lay the major share on Greece itself. With government jobs paying three times the private sector average, a national rail service with a wage bill four times its annual revenue, a public pension system that would pay out generous benefits at fifty for anyone classified as working in "arduous" professions like hairdressing, there is no shortage of taxpayer-funded largesse running rampant through Greek society.

At this point however, dissecting the Greek's failure to live within their means is not only nugatory - beyond proving the time-tested observation that people like something for nothing - but also obfuscates the true moral contours of the crisis. Moreover, it blurs our understanding of a fundamental truth crucial not just to the future of Greeks but all peoples: Government debt is not like private debt. In fact, government debt is fundamentally illegitimate and one might even be justified in claiming that anyone seeking to profit from it is aiding and abetting criminal activity.

Private Debt vs. Government Debt

As Murray Rothbard argued in his seminal essay, "Repudiating the National Debt," public debt is a wholly different beast than private debt contracted between ordinary individuals. In the latter case, a creditor lends to a debtor a specified amount of their own funds in exchange for a specified payment from the debtor in the future. By making this contractual exchange from which both parties benefit (otherwise they w ...
