Secrets You Aren't Supposed to Know
The purpose of this website is simple: To tell you useful
things you didn't know. We stopped selling You Aren't Supposed
to Know: A Book of Secrets and The Secrets Package
because it was difficult to keep all the e-books updated and
fresh. It's easier to do that on a website. Generally we call
"secrets" any bits of news and information that we
think are known by less than 20% of the population at the time
we publish them.
On the pages of this site you'll learn how to read minds,
boost your intelligence, make more money, spend less, get the
real news, subliminally persuade people, detect lies, and find
treasure. That's just the start. In the coming months we'll be
adding most of the content for which you used to have to pay
$27 when we were still selling it.

Investing in Lawsuits: Should It Be Allowed?
- March 2014 - Champerty is the practice of investing in a lawsuit.
At one time it was made illegal or was highly restricted in England
and the United States, but it has been making a comeback as the
laws change step-by-step. Technically the U.S. practice of attorneys
working for a percentage... Continue

Sales Trick - Good salesmen have always known intuitively
what behavioral economists are finally proving through research.
For example, there is a process of "integrating losses"
that causes us to pay more for things than we normally would.
A classic example is a $300 car stereo you would have thought
was too expensive the day before, but when you are buying a $21,000
car, $500 for the same stereo seems reasonable. This is why car
salesmen push the extras hard. They are easier sales when you
are already spending a large amount of money.
The Return of Debtor's Prison - Most people
think of debtor's prison as a thing of the past in this country.
In fact, at a federal level, the United States abolished imprisonment
for unpaid debts in 1833. Many states ended the practice around
the same time, and by the 1850s most state constitutions had
clauses prohibiting the jailing of people for debts. Some legal
scholars would even argue that there is no such thing as imprisonment
for debt here now. But is that really true? Let's take a look...

Power to the People... In Power - Here are a
few under-reported stories that caught my attention in the last
few weeks. Read on for reports about arrests for smelly pot,
New York's stop-and-harass policy, and other interesting and
A Fair Price and Your Price - What is the "right"
price to pay for something and should we all pay the same price?
Is it fair for a business to charge some people more for a product
or service than they charge others? Questions like these are
interesting, and worthy of discussion according to the ethical
issues raised. For example, if a pharmaceutical company invests
millions in developing a life-saving drug, and then start producing
the drug for a cost $1 per dose, they might in theory make a
marginal profit at a wholesale cost of $1.50, except that they
have to recover those millions spent on research too. One way
they can do this is to charge people in wealthier countries a
lot more than those who live in poor countries. Charging according
to what people can afford seems like an ethical arrangement which
generates the revenue necessary to recover initial investments
and provide a decent profit. But what if the point is to simply
charge each customer as much as possible using... Read More:
Behavioral Economics and Subliminal Manipulation
- The science of economics (to the extent that it can be called
a science) is at its core a study of human behavior. Economies
are simply the result of all of the millions of actions taken
by investors, business people and consumers. But most of the
time economists are telling us about the larger issues like inflation,
wages, unemployment, and production. Behavioral economics, on
the other hand, is a very specialized branch of the science which
looks at the psychology of economic decision making processes
of individuals and... Read More: Subliminal
Statistical Lies and The Liars Who Use Them
- In his book, Stat-Spotting, Joel Best gives a good example
of how politicians can lie with statistics. He explains how President
Bush's Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton went before reporters
and announced that the United States had had its first net gain
in wetlands since the Fish and Wildlife Service started tracking
wetland acreage in 1954. That certainly makes it sound like the
administration and its agencies are doing a good job protecting
the environment, doesn't it? But it turns out that the only reason
there was a supposed increase in wetlands acreage is because....

on wrongful prosecution and how we might make it less... Read
The FBI's Make-Believe War on Terrorism - There
have been relatively few real terror attacks or even plots in
the United States. But that doesn't mean there are not many "manufactured"
plots. In his book, "The Terror Factory; Inside the FBI's
Manufactured War on Terrorism," Trevor Aaronson gives a
few examples... Read More: FBI
