It's that Harvard quack again: Take osteoporosis, for example, which currently affects more than a third of women and one in five men in the UK during their lifetimes. This is a perfect example of “dysevolution” and, quite simply, is caused by the decline in physical activity necessary to build and maintain enough bone mass to last a lifetime. “We have skeletons that require exercise and physical activity to grow properly. That's an ancient aspect of our biology that we're not going to be able to change,” explains Lieberman. “We can't develop bone after we mature, so people achieve peak bone mass sometime between the age of 20 and 30, and the more active you are when you're young, the more bone mass you accrue in your body. Then we all start losing bone, that's just life.

Yet with just a third of women and a fifth of men suffering, you'd have thought osteoporosis would affect more if everyone wasn't getting enough exercise. How is it that the exercise reduced bone loss but doesn't increase it? An alternative explanation is not enough sunlight and therefore not enough vitamin D, necessary for the uptake of calcium. The thought of exercise increasing bone mass, but only till your 30s is bizarre. Why then do doctors offer calcium supplements?

You have to wonder where he gets his ideas: “The decline in demand of the immune system causes it to sometimes behave inappropriately and attack cells or seemingly harmless molecules such as the proteins in peanuts or milk or wheat, and the result is an increase in the number of allergies and other immune disease.”

How would an immune system decide it's being underused and so fly off the handle and start misbehaving?

Another question is why is a propaganda rag peddling this B.S. from an Harvard quack and his crappy book?

Cambridge Quackonomists Face Angry Mob

Instead, audience members – middle-aged, smartly dressed and doubtless sizably mortgaged – took it in turn to attack bankers, politicians and, yes, economists. They'd created the mess everyone else was paying for, yet they'd suffered no retribution.

In one of the world's elite institutions, the elites were taking a pasting – from accountants, entrepreneurs and academics. They knew what they were on about, too. Given his turn on the mic, one biologist said: "I'll believe economists have reformed when the men behind Black and Scholes [the theory that helps traders value financial derivatives] have been stripped of their Nobel prizes."

- Mainstream economics is in denial: the world has changed

Yes, the UK's most prestiguous edukashunal establishment peddles lies. Quackonomist have recently been admitting that quackonomics is not a science, saying it has different factions which you wouldn't see in a true science. But quackonomics is even less than that. It's merely competing factions of lies, reflecting the fact that western shamocracy is nothing but gangsterism.

After all, the most significant thing to emerge from academic economics in the past five years has not been any piece of research, but the superb documentary Inside Job, in which film-maker Charles Ferguson showed how some of the best minds at American universities had been paid by Big Finance to produce research helping Big Finance.

So the undergraduates have for years been taught B.S. at Harvard and Cambridge and didn't even know it!!!! Still believe the US and UK have the World's best yooniversities? Quackonomics isn't even an intellectually rigourous subject, so the likes of amerikan quackonomist, Adam Posen, have a Ph.D. in B.S. It's like having a dumb-assed Ph.D. in Finger-Painting or Navel Gazing. What was the title of his doctoral thesis, "Adverntures in Advanced B.S.", "You CAN fool 100% of the Sheeple 100% of the Time" or "How to Shout Louder When Confronted with the Truth" perhaps?

An Entire Quackonomy Based on Fraud

In Peter Seller's comedy, Gardener, a simpleton was mistaken for a guru. As a gardener in the employ of a millionaire (equivalent to a billionaire today), the gardener was asked who he was when his employer died. He replied "gardener" and they mistook this for his name not his profession. The gardener was then featured on talk shows, asked for his advice by politicians etc. for his wisdom.

"Fama's research at the end of the 1960s and the beginning of the 1970s showed how incredibly difficult it is to beat the market, and how incredibly difficult it is to predict how share prices will develop in a day's or a week's time," said Peter Englund, secretary of the committee that awards the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences. "That shows that there is no point for the common person to get involved in share analysis. It's much better to invest in a broadly composed portfolio of shares."
- Nobel Prize Winner: Bubbles Don't Exist

Yes, this years Nobbled Prize in Quackonomics has been awarded to a complete simpleton! As I posted above, Mike Rozeff (a quack professor of finance) on lewrockwell.com has already tried this B.S. and been lambasted by his readers. Those who believe they can predict share prices in a day or a week are gullible enough to believe that all the markets aren't massively rigged. As Buffett says, in the short term it's a voting booth; in the long term a weighing booth.

"I don't even know what that means. People who get credit have to get it from somewhere. Does a credit bubble mean that people save too much during that period? I don't know what a credit bubble means. I don't even know what a bubble means. These words have become popular. I don't think they have any meaning."

This was the B.S. line Greenspan took, claiming he didn't know how to identify a bubble. Yet he now admits he did generate one.

Smears

This may not be too important, because China does not have many scientific secrets to be stolen compared to America or Europe.
- Internet lessons to learn

So China is the World's leading patent applicant and a net exporter of technology unlike the Great Satan which is a net importer, yet the hackneyed propaganda from Asia Times Online claims the opposite! The Great Satan has long used the Echelon spying network to thieve technology and now does so with the Prism and other schemes, spying on Petrobras, for example. The thieved state of Auztralia, meanwhile pays bribes to thieve market information from mining companies in China.

The above propaganda, then, is like the claim from the Great Satan that Occupied Korea was pleading for its most expensive drone, in order to spy on Free Korea. Instead, Wikileaks revealed that the amerikan gangsters were berating Occupied Korea to buy it.

The only thing to note is that the Great Satan blocks technology to China, sabotaging the joint venture, sat-nav with Europe as well as blocking arms sales (though its poodle seems to be exempt).

This means that the gangsters running Amerika don't give a **** about the thieved nation. By refusing to sell technology, it only encourages China to develop her own, rendering the amerikan (and probably thieved) technology worthless. In other words, the short term profiteering benefits the gangsters who hold the patents but damages the thieved state of Amerika in the long run.

More Lies

Eugene Fama and Robert Shiller, who together with Lars Peter Hansen received economics Nobel prizes this month, had differing views about bubbles. Fama thought they were rare and impossible to spot, whereas Shiller made his name spotting them.
- Shiller's reckoning

Once again, two "winners" of the Nobbled prize in Quackonomics have diametrically opposing ideas. It's as plausible as Nobbled peace prizes being awarded to Barack Obama, Henry Kissinger, Shimon Peres and Yitzak Rabin; all war criminals. Such farce can only be explained by the fact that it is corrupt, as if the prize always going to Amerikans who have the worst debt in all of History wasn't a dead give-away. As ever in politics, the fraud is ambiguous. Obama's prize was awarded before he even took office to highlight the fact that it wasn't deserved. Similarly, the UK's higher edukation minister, David Willets, at once, admits the system is rigged in favour of the slug-brained as well as promoting the fraud, thus catering to all.

Fama uses the old shyster trick of asking a question to imply a falsehood rather than providing an answer which can be proven false: "Can you have a bubble in all asset markets at the same time? Does that make any sense at all? Maybe it does in somebody’s view of the world, but I have a real problem with that," he said in a recent interview.

As everyone knows, a rising tide lifts all boats, especially when it's B.S. Bernanke hyperinflating the monetary base by 40% every year.

Fama's Efficient Market hypothesis precludes the fact that all the markets are rigged.
