Alstry is about to make a BIG CHANGE



May 26, 2009 – Comments (13)

Alstry is about to morph into a new phase of Alstrynomics.

For the past few years, Alstrynomics has been analyzing its concept of CONCENTRIC CONTRACTION.......where basically everything we value economically becomes worthless....

In the evolutionary process, this is more commonly viewed as the DECONSTRUCTIVE PHASE.  In any major revolutionary period, you must deconstruct the existing paradigm to make way for the new paradigm.....and the NEW paradigm Alstry is contemplating is much more radical than any we have seen in the past 130 years....

The last time the world experienced such an event was the late 1800's where we morphed from an agricultural society into an industrial existence.  Prior to the transformation, the vast majority of the world, especially Americans, lived an agrarian the transformation, few lived on the farm and most things that were of value prior to the transformation were almost valuless during the change.

Alstrynomics is about to take on a new direction....however, the DECONSTRUCTIVE PHASE has a long way to go........but quite frankly it is time to look foward.....however, DON'T forget the present because it is about to get much more convulsive.

As with any revolutionary change....the process is very distruptive to the existing perspective.  Think of a catapiller morphing into a the catapiller the change is could argue for the better or worse.....but radical nonetheless.  Post change, the entire existence of the butterfly is totally different than its life as a catapiller.  That which was important to the catapiller is likley not very important to the butterfly.  The way the butterfly moves is different, the distance it travels is different.  The way it plays with its friends is different.....just about every aspect of the butterfly's life is different than when it was a catapiller.

This new phase of Alstrynomics will deal with the morphing of the Industrial Age into what Alstrynomics calls the Technological Age.  The process will be radical and convulsive....just like the process from Agricultural Age into the Industrial Age or the process from being a Catapillar and changing into a Butterfly.

I have little doubt that our children and children's children will look back at our existance is primitive....just like many contemporary urban dwellers or current day farmers look back at life in the 1800's in a similar perspective.  The issue is in the change.......the change will inevitably be very convulsive.....but like any radical chemo to a cancer patient.....change towards a potentially better future can be very uncomfortable...........and unfortunately destructive to many......regardless how PREPARED we think we are........

So just look around you.....many of the jobs necessary in the Industrial Age will serve no purpose in the Technological Age (why do you think Alstry can forecast 30-50% unemployment)......much of what you currently think is valuble will hold no value (hence Alstry's Techno Trance Analysis and the impact of the Zombulator) the end it is the relationship humans have toward themselves and their spiritual side which transcends all time and long as you hold to your core beliefs and character....the change will be met with strength even though it may be difficult to experience.

Prepare....Don't Fear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  but don't forget about the present...we are still in the Deconstructive Phase.....but it is now time to set the foundation for the New Constructive Technological Era.

Not necessarily....the changes will be far more radical.

Think of The New Alstrynomics as Orange Swan Analysis.  In Nassim Taleb's book, he created the concept of The Black the highly improbable can change our view if the world.

By definition, the highly improbably exists at the time....just few are aware of its existence.  In Alstrynomic's Orange Swan analysis....the nature of the Orange Swan my not exist at the trying to predict the future is much more difficult....but you can still extapolate trends from existing facts.

Maybe Alstry should write a book called The Orange Swan....The Impact of the Non Existent......

In the world of Orange Swans...anything is possible.

In the current world, expect more of the same and expect more DEconstruction than you have ever seen in your life.....

Just prepare.....

When I ready the title of the post, I thought maybe you'd soon be referring yourself in the third person feminine.

Then I saw the title of your planned book.  I think it's kinda weird that you call it The Orange Swan, but to each his (or her or whatever) own.

Trying to imitate your writing style....for now we are in the deconstructive may be's a revolutionary change...the process will be radical and a caterpiller morphing into a butterfly....the way the butterfly moves is different....the way it plays with its friends is different....the orange swan aka caterpiller will be non-existent....replaced by the butterfly....the impact of the zombulator begins to send Alstry into a is about to get much more convulsive.....oh god's giving Alstry a concentric contraction!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Concentric Contraction applies to ALL....

The thousands of municipalities going bankrupt.

The millions of companies slowing or shutting down.

The tens of millions losing their jobs or receiving dramatic wage cuts.

In the end we are ALL sailing on one ship......and the ship morphing into a submarine.....the new way of doing things will be very different.

Don't discount Alstry's perspective on the Deconstructive has a long long way to play out....and many will be washed out in the process.

Back to deconstruction.

All economic indicators are in the tank but consumer confidence is up. I personally am hanging my hat on the wise consumer as opposed to Case Shiller.

Maybe the consumer is ahead of everyone else and is living the purple swan while we are here debating over Tang.
