Continuing with the Overview and Articles from the Master Budget, this concerns the Production Budget, which could also be considered a Carried Inventory Budget for retail firms. If the Sales Budget is the hinge of the entire process, then the Production Planning is the door. Yup, its corny, but the Production Budget will be the roll up and representative of units produced or carried (depending on firm) and this will span Direct Materials, Direct Labor and Manufacturing Overhead. While I will get into the subcategories later, the two most important things to keep in mind is Capacity and Constraints. This concept is explained further in my Substack article.

interestingly history not only rhymes but repeats ... within prepper personas, the latest money is in real estate of 'organized communities'. buy a plot with like mined people. in the 70s a similar development of communes sprouted up.
yes, there was the hippy movement, but there was also a homesteading element. communes have never worked. modeling on communities, is the equivalent to your HOA ... but with uniformed guards. how long till that doesnt work out and becomes the guard-prisoner experiment?

tribalism is entirely different. it is built upon a chief, accepted by the tribe, to lead and make the decisions. groups have their duties and you do the duties. tribalism doesnt lend well to individualism or when a community will have bands within the community. it always devolves to those with might will make the rules. even in peaceful times, human behavior will devolve. what will there be if you really have to test peoples' reactions to a fire and there is no longer any external civilization to hold individuals to account.

...but it might be more appropriate to ay approved alternative. one of the points of controlling both sides of opposition, isnt just to control the information but to also control pacification.

if elements are allowed to be released that were taboo, it not only releases emotion that may have been used in a call to action, but it also initiates a belief of 'we are winning' or hope that something will be done that resembles justice.

most will find this will not come to pass and pacification is a tool of demoralization and of buying time

EV

the defining factor is the ability to do work ... if we add in utilization of time and resources and therefore continuous productivity, then there is no contest between the joke that is EV and the combustion engine.

the real reason for the push is that electric and grids can be shutdown and controlled. there is limited range of travel over a given period of time and even more limits on the useful time period for which an EV will operate.

it is an attempt to centralize a control system at the point of electric production, thereby limiting human activity and resource usage ... it is in no way a none polluting form of "free" energy

Curiousities

Gold, Markets, Inflation all rising while debt has now rolled parabolic and a key infrastructure was demolished. I had mentioned many times on my X channel from back in Mar 2020 that it would always be hyperinflation and due to the fact that the markets are vastly owned by banking institutions or a derivative thereof ... there would not be a crash. Markets would run up with inflation until the collapse would be an entire collapse of our country, unrecognizable from its current state.

This isnt the first time it was tried ... a centralized banking institution was laid out in 1913, on the same German set up that financed the Bolshevik Revolution, by the same banking families. You see if all capital runs through a centralized system, that system can be collapse. It leads to starvation, famine and leaves the people in such a state that they would gladly slave out their labor for bread. The central system then profits off the labor and resources... Bolshevism.

A video companion to the Sales Budget Article that I wrote on Substack. The importance of understanding how weighted average impacts a 'run-rate' or carrying forward of revenues and units sold can not be stressed enough.

Sales forecasts are the hinge for all other budgeting involved in the process and all resource investment to support anticipated revenues. I mention the impact of an environment in which a high-price, high-margin product begins to dominate revenues and how these revenues are mistakenly used to project future earnings. Trends are important, sales mix is important ... detrimental in fact.

A companion video to the Substack article that I wrote for the budget series.

It contains some insight in the budget and why consideration should be given for a participative and coordinated budget that is integrated through the departments of the business.

I believe this is one of the best monologues done in a movie. Highly underrated and given the movie plot, the acting is what really carried it through to the end.

Any Given Sunday monologue
I am not much for editing so it is one take, 4 min but I always liked the challenge of longer takes. I try to go with a subtle emotion and it helps not to startle the neighbors.

Interest Rates are an interesting topic. They represent many components, the two most important being time and risk. Now there are legitimate time and material compensation in the for of interest and there are also illegitimate interest rates. I give examples in much simpler conceptual terms.

A quick look at considerations for budding entrepreneurs. In order to be effective in business you must be temporally aware of all aspects of business ops, from historical for projections, to future for risk impacts and mitigation. This is a quick look, simplified, to get concepts stewing in your mind if you have an entrepreneurial endeavor in mind.

Many people discuss gold and silver as an investment asset, but few people ponder why gold was selected as THE monetary asset or why a commoditized system is the only true monetary system for a meritocracy in which people can succeed on their own prowess and hard work.

The supply chain is the complete upstream (raw materials) to the extended downstream (the final consumer) and your company fits somewhere in this stream. Generally, a firm is most concerned with its immediate sourcing and immediate customer as the supplier materials are transformed in the "wall-to-wall" confines of the operational process and sent off down the line. The supply chain should be viewed for the risks it has and the bottlenecks in the entire flow and the necessary components for a smooth flow should be understood by your firm. But starting with the basic of what a supply chain is comprised of is a good place to begin understanding.

Marketing consists of a number of aspects of a product and overall business reputation. The marketing strategy consists of a complete understanding of all the goes into a product to develop a pricing strategy, advertising method and continued customer relationship. This is in addition to a fully developed understanding of the target customer and continued analysis of competitors strategies. Marketing is one of the most difficult segments to assess a monetary value to and monetary benefit from, and yet it is essential to a successful enterprise.

Too many people dont understand how or why the development of a fiat currency system was established or why an asset currency system was tossed aside. Point blank the fiat system allows for an central banking institution to steal away goods and services from those that must work to repay the debts. The debts that are created from thin air on a printing press. Asset backed systems create price stability, prevent people's enslavement to government, force a government's balancing of a budget and create an opportunity to succeed from hard work by keeping your productivity.

I discuss a paper by J. Morales (2010) and his belief that the contraposition of Smith's and Ricardo's theories of trade was misinterpreted, perhaps intentionally. As one expands the concept of comparative advantage and specialization in the neoclassical model that followed from the misinterpretation, it seems to strip the entrepreneurial individual in favor of the collective and thus stamps out the true source of innovation. Specialization is not the same as Division of Labor. Specialization can be pushed too far to the point of being reliant for all other things which I believe is the unspoken opportunity cost of comparative advantage.

[Conducting a thoughts and reactions format that can be viewed is one of the best ways I have found to spur on topics for research and presentation. Listening to oneself, and others, is like proofreading a paper; topics for further explanation, continuity of presenting and those with more value become more easily recognized.]

In this episode I give thoughts on the Fed Reserve system and government policies that are not nearly as effective or separate as the public would be lead to believe. From this, I will develop a series on the origins of the Fed Reserve, the reasons for Financial Institutions and how they get out of control in a fiat system.

A commentary on supply chains. What makes up a supply chain, what factors go into an efficient supply chain and causes of disruption from a demand standpoint.

The US economy is over 60% consumer based and directly impacts demand in every sector and thus labor and consumption. This in turn is reflected in the financial statements of the publicly traded firms and should play a role in the valuation of shares, the equity.

These are a quick look at considerations for budding entrepreneurs. In order to be effective in business you must be temporally aware of all aspects of business ops, from historical for projections, to future for risk impacts and mitigation. This look is mostly simplified, to get concepts stewing in your mind if you have an entrepreneurial endeavor in mind. As the videos progress, deeper dives will be taken into pillars.

Further, there are thoughts voiced on government impact and thoughts on the education of these topics in today's institutions.
