I seem to recall a thread with a similar complaint in the past.
If I remember correctly, Luck's response was that there seemed to be enough
people reading the posts the justify them.  I have found a couple of useful links
in them, but I usually don't have the time to wade through them all.

Still, I wonder if the FSP would have shut the board down by now if it weren't
for Luck's posts and the reader traffic they presumably generate.

It would be nice if there were more than 5 lines of post notifications.

I agree that the forum isn't given much prominence on the FSP website.  I wonder
how many of the signers have forum accounts?  I recall another post where Jason
wanted to encourage people to start using the forum again vice Facebook, but clearly
it didn't take.  I don't Facebook, so I can't go in to the Facebook page and make the
plea there.

This helps explain Economics. Economics is Simple.
The above graph [Find at link] disputes the “debt-clock” worriers, who falsely claim the federal debt is like personal debt and so is “unsustainable” because of the following myths:
A. The federal debt is too big (blue line) to sustain, [though it has grown massively and still is “sustained.”]
B. The federal debt is too high a percentage of GDP (red line), [though it repeatedly has passed predicted limits with no ill economic effects.]
C. The huge federal debt will slow economic growth (green line), [which has shown scant signs of slowing for 80 years.]
The faux simplicity is the false claim that federal debt is like personal debt. The public understands personal debt, so it is led to believe it understands federal debt.
The effect of complexity is to confuse either the author or the readers, and in that it has done remarkably well. The vast majority of the literate world is confused.
Once we wipe away the faux complexity, we are left with the following simplicity:
I. The U.S. federal government, unlike state, local, and euro governments is Monetarily Sovereign, which means it is sovereign over the U.S. dollar. It never unintentionally can run short of dollars. Even if all federal tax collections fell to $0, the federal government could pay any size debt denominated in dollars. Further, it has absolute control over the relative value of the dollar.
Monetary Sovereignty is fundamentally simple. Anyone who has played the board game, Monopoly, knows the Monopoly Bank is Monetarily Sovereign. By rule, it never can run short of Monopoly dollars and can create all it needs.
II. Recessions are caused by a lack of money, and they are cured by money creation, particularly by federal deficit spending.
III. Inflations are not caused by government currency printing but rather by shortages, usually shortages of food or energy. Counter-intuitively (for many), increased government spending, to reduce food or energy shortages, reduces inflation.
IV. The human side of economics is ruled by Gap Psychycholgy, the desire to distance oneself from those “below” on any social scale and to approach those “above.”
If you understand the above four simplicities, you understand the Ten Steps to Prosperity (below).

kinda disturbing when a free stater dies and no one on the free stater web form even replies on the thread about it... cause they're seemingly all on facebook.  Would be nice to see more traffic here, it is still a useful place to post information, especially for the purpose of having it remain findable for a long time.
