May 04, 2009 – Comments (13)

I've been trying to get my arms around the so called "Alstrynomics" to see if I could really really use it as a tool to aid my lack of investing prowess.  What I've found is that since there is technically only 1 teacher/student/professor/et al, is that I would have to study what is presented in the blogs, and that any hope of understanding it would be 'iffy' at best.

In studying the blogs, it becomes obvious that this is not an entry level topic.  To that end, I've compiled some notes related to Alstry[nomics].  These snippets are intended to assist not only myself, but those wishing to 'dig deeper' into Alstry[nomics].  Know that this compilation will only scratch the surface and I can only recommend to others to perform their own due diligence and additional research in mining this vast resource of information.

For myself, the jury is still out on just how helpful Alstry[nomics] actually is.  I subscribe to the school of thought that 'Knowledge is Power' - those that care to read this blog are warned that it may or may not be a waste of your time and that it may or may not take you any more closer to the understanding of Alstry[nomics] (which I know that there is only one that truly understands it, and it is not me)


Note that one other reason I've compiled this is because I seem to keep coming across "Alstrynomics is all about...."  - and I've seen that so many times, I wanted to make a real list of what it's "all about"

So now, without further blather:

=================================

12/18/08

Accounting + Owning a business + The School of Hard Knocks + Some Heavy Drinking = Alstrynomics...........far more practical and insightful than what you learn in school


12/19/08

The issue is whether one can  have monetary inflation and price deflation.......we may be about to learn you can........just becuase it has never happend before  doesn't mean it can't happen now........which concludes lesson lll of Alstrynomics.

12/20/08

You are much better off focusing on common cents and Alstrynomics.  If the banks ain't lending, the economy is crashing....plain and simple.

12/20/08

the Alstrynomics principal where you can have monetary inflation and price deflation.....this is something they will teach in textbooks in coming years

12/22/08

Alstrynomics lesson #4....higher unemployment can lead to a stronger dollar.

12/22/08

You are about to see some pretty amazing earnings reductions in the upcoming weeks.....based on Alstrynomics....which likes to look forward rather than backward....

12/23/08

Fools, don't be fooled by the fools who are saying the fed is printing money so it must be inflation...obviously these  fools never took a course in Alstrynomics(the practical and common sense application of Economics....as opposed to theory in a vacum). 

12/23/08

Alstrynomic's application of its key theory, Concentric Contraction, is not fully beginning to take root.

Get ready to see things happen that "Never Happened Before."

12/30/08

Now you are learning about the consequences of Alstrynomics.  Hyperinflation makes everyone poor, Deflation makes only most of the people poor.

1/1/09

Alstrynomics keys in on the analysis of actual data......and preferably data obtained from a variety of sources  to increase the odds of accuracy.

1/1/09

In Alstrynomics, forced frugality leads to deflationary pricing.

1/5/09

Remember, Alstrynomics is the pratical application of Economics and Political Science with a fact based approach.

1/5/09

Alstrynomics focus on boots on the ground data.....

1/7/09

Remember, Alstrynomics seeks the practical application of Economics.

1/9/09

Is the WHOLE economy a Ponzi scheme?????

Alstrynomics has given you the heads up for a few years.

1/10/09

Remember Alstrynomics is the practical application of economics and politcial science.

1/14/09

Remember...you can believe in ecomomis or apply Alstrynomics.

Remember Alstrynomics warning....PREPARE... don't despair.

1/15/09

... Remember, Alstrynomics is all about pursuing your own independent thinking

1/19/09

Alstrynomics forecasts, absent this nonsensical innaguration etravaganza, that Obama will be the most fiscally conservative president in at least 50 years.......factoring in the relative economic environment he is facing.

1/19/09

You should expect the incidence of riots to start spreading through out Europe very vey soon.  When people can't eat...they tend to get a bit angry at their respective governments.

Alstrynomics is the application of practical information.....not the practice of theorizing on applied theory.

1/21/09

Now for the good news....it apprears that Obama is NOT going to print his way out of this mess......as a poker player and a compulsive practicioner of Alstrynomics....that is my read....let's hope its the right one.

1/21/09

Alstrynomics lives in the real world and applies real world facts to extrapolate projects, the gold nuts live in the past and have not yet learned how to count money in the digital age.  Do you think the gold nuts still use scales to determine their net worths???

1/21/09

Alstrynomics forecast that the world is shutting down seems to be on track

1/26/09

Alstrynomics is about substance over noise, peformance over being pretty, character over being kissing backside...in the end it is about points....

1/26/09

Alstrynomic calculations lead me to forecast at least 25-30% reported unemployment and over 50% functional unemployment before we bottom out.

1/27/09

Remember, Alstrynomics is all about character and competence.....especially in real
life.

1/28/09

Not all is negative applying Alstrynomics

1/30/09

With Alstry, it is not how much less have I lost than you....it is how much has been made in real life...in any environment.

Alstrynomics never likes to be less of a loser....winning is the only thing that is fun in Alstry's world

1/30/09

Basically, land is worthless.  And as more and more people get laid off and if they are lucky, hired for half of what they were making before......affordibilty is imploding just as Alstrynomics warned you and you brushed it aside.

Well, you learned the hard way not listening to Alstrynomics by losing your job yourself.  Something that was not difficult to foresee based on your cavalier attitude dismissing the Alstrynomic warnings.  You couldn't foresee the value of land then and you still can't.

1/31/09

2/5/09

Alstrynomics is makes no appologies for presenting the truth....without knowledge of the truth, there can be no democracy.

Do you think Alstrynomics is like a Techno Fairy who blows with the wind and afraid of the translucent varible nature of the spectors......not a chance........

3/18/09

Alstrynomics uses M3 plus ALL OUTSTANDING CREDIT

3/20/09

Alstrynomics is generally first to tell you what is going on

Alstrynomics....the practical application of the facts into reasonable projections

3/22/09

soon you will learn why Alstrynomics was created.....the PRACTICAL application of economics and political science butressed by psychology, sociology, physics, mathematics, chemistry and a number of other diciplines synthesized into an actionable application to investing including but not limited to its new emerging area of Techno Trance Spector Vector analysis

3/24/09

and Alstrynomics is all about reality

3/25/09

Think of Alstry as the Doctor of Alstrynomics....and right now Alstrynomics is one of the few that really understand the economic disease infecting and spreading rapidly across America.

3/26/09

I thought you would like to know that Alstry has been nominated to receive an honorary doctorate from the Institute of Alstrynomics.  It might be redundent because he already calls himself the Doctor of Alstrynomics.  He was the creator of its foundational theory of Concentric Contraction....where just about every asset class collapses in value.

Many at the institute believe Concentric Contraction will replace Modern Portfolio Theory as the standard for Institutional Money Management.  The problem, like all great theories, is that it will likely be not appreciated until its too late for many of the institutions.

3/27/09

ALSTRYNOMICS IS ALL ABOUT STAYING ON THE
CUTTING EDGE OF THE FACTS....NOT FICTION

winning is a matter of degree

Thanks!  Best Blog I've seen in a long time...it's all starting to make more sense to me....If President Obama is adopting it then it must be a good thing....??  :)  I'm still lost on the part that Aystrynomics is about reality. I thought it was who could get the most blog recs and who spent the most time looking in a mirror, than actually providing any useful information.  :)

Alstrynomics is like Zen, and like Winning, and like the Truth, and like Facts -

 But it has little predictive value, makes no confirmable statements about where things are going (except constant statements on 25% unemployment, using whatever current statistic shows the highest number of unemployment and changing to a different statistic for unemployment if the current isn't going high enough).

 I short Alstrynomics in real life.  I invest money in good companies, realizing that things will not reach 25% unemployment, the world economy won't collapse, and things are not similar to the great depression.  There is cheap food, agriculture is doing just great (no dust bowl), food is not going rotten in fields - we are shipping across the world.  Banks are not reposessing houses in the same fashion as in the great depression (in the great depression your farm could get forclosed upon even if you made all your payments - they had short term mortage loans (not 30 years) that you would have to get extended from the banking industry every year - they could just turn you down and take your land if they wanted). 

 Cars are commonplace, food is cheap, everyone has a frickin TV.  We live in a life of plenty now - though lending was done poorly it doesn't change the fact that things are pretty fricken good in the US now compared with previous decades and places of the world.  Other economies will continue to develop and grow, and we'll see great things.

 Don't fear.  (And don't buy into Alstrynomics).  It's the worst of the fear-mongoring beariness that has taken over CAPS.  Some bears on the board make great points with great data to back up their hypotheses.  Alstry is not one of those bears.

 -Rof.

I have no idea how to value Alstrynomics. I can think of only two other models to use. But on a comparative basis, even garbage and manure have discernable, though nominal value since they can be recycled. Alstrynomics did not pass this test.

Yes, that is exactly what I was thinking.  I am glad that this matter has been cleared up for me.

Hey everyone, feel free to add any "Alstryisms"  you find during your blogging!

I found this gem in a blog post on April 30th titled "Alstry Calling the TOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" -

"Alstrynomics is not about being liked.....simply being right and helping others is satisfaction enough."

 

Please keep in mind that this blog is my own selfish exercise in the study of "Alstry[nomics]" - this blog is NOT intended for any other use (although obviously I can't control this)

Not only will Alstrynomics relatively outperform the market, it will absolutely outperform the great TRDH.  Then we will see who provides more value to this game.
