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.”
Watch author Charles Sauer describe why he wrote: Profit Motives:
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.”
Mumford & Sons Guitarist Swarmed by Fanatic Leftists After Praising Andy Ngo’s Book
Musicians are terrified to speak out against fanatic leftism.
Folk rock musician Winston Marshall was swarmed by furious leftists after congratulating journalist Andy Ngo on the publication of his new book, “Unmasked.” Ngo’s book breaks down Antifa’s model of attacking democracy and political violence in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, shining light on the street terror group’s extremism.
Marshall, the lead guitarist of Mumford & Sons, hailed Ngo as a “brave man” in a since-deleted tweet.
Antifa supporters were quick to attack the musician as a “Nazi,” unleashing the hate-filled vitriol commonly associated with the intolerant movement. Marshall’s Twitter feed is largely filled with support for Hong Kong demonstrators, a far cry from what leftists might expect from a “fascist.” The English guitar player’s band is known for songs such as “I Will Wait” and “Hopeless Wanderer.”

Others pointed to the faux social media outrage as mere evidence of the Left’s intolerance and fanaticism.
Congratulations to @MrWinMarshall for showing us, once again, that the people who claim to be "tolerant", "kind" and "open-minded" are the most illiberal, hateful and intolerant around. I'll be going to as many of his concerts as possible.

Ngo has been forced to flee the United States under a constant barrage of Antifa threats in recent months, with the street terror group determined to silence Ngo’s reporting on consistent property damage, anarcho-tyranny, and violent crime in Portland and elsewhere.
Unfortunately, Marshall has since deleted the tweet. It’s considered impossible to get anywhere in the mainstream music industry if you haven’t cravenly bowed before the false gods of ultraliberalism and identity leftism. While Marshall took a risk in even saluting Ngo’s work in the first place, he unfortunately appears to have backed down, to a degree, a sad lamentation of the state of mainstream entertainment and corporate culture.
