About me[edit]

As my name implies, I am a teenage investor. My hobbies include video games, investing, history, ping pong and others. I am an avid reader and daily user of wikipedia. I like knowledge, and read articles in economics, history, astronomy, mathematics, science and virtually any discipline you can think of. My political beliefs are libertarian or classical liberal, having been influenced by the Austrian economics of Ludwig Von Mises and Murray Rothbard. I edit wikipedia because since it has given me so much knowledge, i think i should give back.

Common misconceptions I encounter:

1. China is NOT a communist country- it is more free market than US. Government spending is less as a percentage of GDP, and barriers to entry to major industries are non-existent; thousands of small shipping and steel businesses pop up in China that would have not occured with the US's regulations.
2.China is not a "poor, dirty sweatshop". In fact, it is one of the most industrial countries in the world, with steel production five times that of the US.
3. The free market doesn't hurt the poor. On the contary, they help the poor. Capitalism has increased per capita incomes tremondously since 1800 and the poor has been the first to benefit. A poor man now lives better than a king in 1800. With government intervention that kills economic growth, poverty is perpetuated.
4. India and China are not comparable in development. That's just used to sell copies of the economist. Indian steel production is only 1/20 that of China and its manufacturing sector is tiny and ineffective. This is mainly due to the license Raj.

Thoughts on editing wikipedia[edit]

Anyone editing wikipedia (including myself) is suffering from some degree of battered wife syndrome. This place is fun at times to be around and you can find some really nice, intelligent people, but a lot of the time it's a never-ending dispute against vandals, socks, editors who know nothing about the topic and then come in pretending to be an expert, and editors who are intentionally POV pushing and claiming ridiculus things. Admin abuse gets worse and worse and even established editors can be blocked without warning for not listening to their orders suggestions. Dozens of editors who've created much of the FA's here have been either blocked, banned or driven off wiki, and almost all editors have been savaged at least once. It's pretty hard to stay here without at least some Leopold in you.Teeninvestor (talk) 15:49, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

This barnstar is awarded to User:Teeninvestor for making the unprecedented closure of Comparison between Roman and Han Empires possible, despite enormous odds. You work gives hope to all editors who try to save articles. You are an inspiration to all wikipedians. Ikip 23:24, 25 December 2009 (UTC)
