Exclusive: Economist Charles Sauer describes why he wrote ‘Profit Motive’

Published

on

The libertarian economist and founder of the Market Institute, who wrote the new book Profit Motives: What drives the things we do, told Big League Politics that he was motivated to write the book after thinking about why he did and did not do things.

 

“I had nine unwritten books in my head,” said Charles Sauer, who for many years was a senior staffer for the Senate Finance Committee. “I had coffee book table book about the best bathrooms in DC–and I had all of these books, but nothing really earned my time, but then, when I had the idea for Profit Motive, it kept coming up as an idea, over and over again.”

Sauer said he kept having conversations about the ideas he developed in the book, so he decided to actually write it.

“People are motivated by things, and if you can identify their motivations, you can get them to do things for you,” he said.

“Or you can get the things you want more easily,” he said.

It is about figuring out why you do things and why others do things, he said.

“It is easier to go through life if you understand what motivates people,” he said.

“This book through every chapter talks about what motivates people in different industries, whether that is in business or politics or media or even in your personal life,” he said.

“Once you have that understanding, you can actually see and forecast how others are move around you–and it makes life easier,” he said.

“T. Boone Pickens said that this book is a good first step towards your first billion,” Sauer said. “But really it is just a cornerstone for how you move through life.”

“Politics is what we see on the news–but, friends would point out, ‘They’re doing that because of this-and-this motivation,’ so I realized it was really an idea that needed and that they could grab onto and understand,” he said.

“As I started writing the book, it became clear it was really a big strategy to view life and make life easier for everybody–and more profitable.”

President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools

An alternative to leftist brainwashing.

Published

on

President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.

The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)

The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.

Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.

These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”

We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.

The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
