Why I Am Not An Employee

by Ken Matesz

Most people today have never had any education in economics.

The result is that too many think that economics is the study of money and investments.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Economics is the study of why people do or do not take action. It is the study of how people manage their lives. In fact, the word “economic” comes from a Greek word meaning “household management.”

That’s it! That is all that economics is about: Human action.

Money just happens to be something we use to represent either labor (actions we take) or property (things we might want).

Opportunity Is Like Air

by Ken Matesz

You cannot escape it.

When you go to sleep, when you’re dreaming, when you awake, when you shower, even when you go underwater, you are with it.

I Choose Happy

by Ken Matesz

“The secret of happiness is freedom and the secret of freedom is courage.”
-Thucydides (471-400 BC)

Not long ago I went through a period of seeming business drought. Checks were not arriving in the mail. Contracts were not being signed. The phone was not ringing and email inquiries were sparse.

When this happens, I depend on savings to pay my bills and live my life.

I know. It’s a radical idea to actually have money saved that can be used to live through temporarily challenging times. . . .

A friend to whom I confided my situation became obviously concerned. She, like most people, is not self-employed and never has been. She cannot conceive of a life in which a paycheck doesn’t come in every one to two weeks.
