In reality, the most altruistic thing that any of us can do is to vote for government officials and policies that will preserve individual incentives eliminating silly transfers which I currently benefit from by reducing welfare and progressive taxesand thus minimize deadweight losses.
Do you think that Steve Jobs and Bill Gates worked countless hours and sacrificed so much for the sake of altrusim?HOW TO GET FREE TELEPHONE SERVICE VOIP FOR HOME OR OFFICE USE (OBI 200 & GOOGLE VOICE)
They wanted to be filthy rich. In order to restore incentives to their proper form, we need to eliminate entitlements and let people reap the efforts of their own hard work, or the consequences of their lack of hard work.
It is no accident that entitlements are bankrupting this country. Emmers, upon further inspection, I oversimplified.
Of course, this can be manipulated, right? The act of deferring a capital gain to a future date or simply holding assets in tax sheltered accounts means that you are building wealth without realizing unearned income.

Reply Emmers May 16, MMM had an entire post about this the other day! Reply GregK May 16,2: The two are pretty close to mutually exclusive — do some googling. Externalities are the benefits or costs that appear for people not involved in a certain market, which is the primary cause of failures in free market systems.
They have typically never lived in countries where the economic system is notably different from their own, and so they tend to believe the best of all possible worlds is simply an optimized version of the system in place where they live. For the US, that is an unregulated free-market system though others may see it differently. It simply ignores reality; things are much more subtle than that.
If you think your four children should have lunch provided to them by the government, go for it. To me, it would leave a bad taste in my mouth. GregK May 16,3: Reply Baughman May 16,4: Wikipedia quoting Adam Smith: By pursuing self interest, which is what Steve Jobs and Bill Gates have done, they have benefited society as a whole immensely…. This is the precise definition of a positive externality. One of the perhaps few useful roles of government is to try to remedy market failures, such as overproduction of negative externalities i.
Education is another often quoted example of a positive externality, which is why governments tend to subsidize education.
In the absence of such subsides, we would collectively underinvest in education as a society. Sorry if I breached the commenting etiquette. I wish we all thought about economics a bit more and I congratulate GregK for doing so and pondered the unintended consequences of government policies….
I think our government would be in a lot better shape right now. Money Mustache May 17,7: But not from one I liked. Similarly, In my current wealth situation, I would not use government assistance to get school lunches or reduced elementary school tuition even if we did qualify.
Instead, we provide EXTRA money and volunteer time to our school voluntarily just to help it recover from the recent period of below-average ranking, and to say thanks for doing such a good job with our kid. Tracy Smith May 17, GregK May 17, This is a good idea.

Always had this nagging thought that it is ridiculous that people living so physically close to each other have to pay ten separate bills, while we could easily share one connection. The problem is that all communications we have with our neighbours is just a nod in the elevator. Ah, the disease of urban societies. Though it is an interesting idea — becoming friends with your neighbours may result in some cash saving: Reply ErikZ May 21, Money Mustache May 21, You can call or visit them if the internet access goes out.
Reply Jane June 13,1: The distance is so slight that no extra equipment of any kind is necessary. Reply Blal June 18,9: You can use your still active connection to the local network to remotely access the router and reboot it without ever leaving the computer. I understand that things are different, but since it uses Asterisk as the PBX "engine" I guess there are probably also plenty of similarities.
I started reading a thread on the PBX in a Flash forum at http: I learned a few things, for example: Of course Asterisk is capable of both those things, but you would have to write the dialplan and in the case of Google Voice, set up the XMPP configuration yourself rather than use a module, as in FreePBX. The upside is that XiVO will likely get a lot more exposure, the downside is that relatively soon this will probably morph into just another incarnation of the "Incredible PBX" which is something I personally do not want.
I know some people like Ward Mundy's little addons but I don't, I just want a clean, basic phone system. And I fear that if you follow the instructions on his site you will get things that aren't at all necessary to a functional PBX, and things that I don't want installed on my PBX at all.

The Nerd Vittles site also run by Ward Mundy has some articles on XiVO in which it mentions how to install a firewall but again you are getting Ward Mundy's preferences, which is not what I want. I figured out a long time ago that his ideas about a proper firewall and mine aren't exactly the same. I wish the articles on that site would explain more of the how and why you construct something like a firewall for a PBX, rather than taking the approach of telling readers to just download and run one of their scripts to install whatever they think is necessary.
