SDP_047 “Projected Benchmarking” – Garbage Media Ploys Following A Mass Shooting

SDP_047 “Projected Benchmarking” – Garbage Media Ploys Following A Mass Shooting

Video-Dr. Perrodin proposes the term “Projected Benchmarking” which he describes as coercing people to imagine that the situation and context of the Vegas shooting could happen at any location at any moment.

SDP_047 “Projected Benchmarking” – Garbage Media Ploys Following A Mass Shooting

Podcast-Dr. Perrodin explains how mass media irresponsibly portrayed the October 1, 2017, Las Vegas massacre as an act of evil that any of us could encounter, in any location, at any moment.

Economic Argument for Price Gouging in Disasters – SDP#45

Economic Argument for Price Gouging in Disasters – SDP#45

VIDEO-Numerous laws prevent price increases when supplies become scarce relative to need during times of crisis. The argument is based upon ethics and not upon economics. Dr. Perrodin points out why short-term market-reflective prices in domestic disasters ultimately ensure a better supply of goods and that the free market tends to quickly stabilize prices without the need for government intervention.[Read More…]

Economic Argument for Price Gouging in Disasters – SDP#45

PODCAST-Market-reflective prices in disasters ultimately ensure a better supply of goods. With extreme need arises a Sophie’s Choice: (1) empty shelves, or (2) hyper-expensive items. Dr. Perrodin argues that price controls are over-simplified “solutions” to short-term complicated resource acquisition issues and sides with free market supply and demand pricing during short-duration sentinel events such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.  [Read More…]

Houston Dunkirk, Cajun Navy & Fixing FEMA – SDP#43

Houston Dunkirk, Cajun Navy & Fixing FEMA – SDP#43

VIDEO-Dr. Perrodin argues that the decision to not evacuate Houston was correct and will be the standard decision moving forward for sentinel events. Infrastructure would not support a timely evacuation. Had Houston ordered an evacuation, hundreds, if not thousands, of people would have perished in their vehicles. This has become the standard (unwritten) protocol for all major cities across the[Read More…]

Houston Dunkirk, Cajun Navy & Fixing FEMA – SDP#43

PODCAST-An abysmal government response to Hurricane Harvey exposed inadequate planning, lack of resources and confusing attempts at invoking incident command that iced potential responders such as commercial drone operators.
