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.

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... Read More: Debtor's Prison

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 frightening... Continue reading here...

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: Fair Price

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...

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.... Read More: Statistical Lies

Wrongful Prosecution: An Example - In their book, Mistrial, Mark Geragos and Pat Harris tell the true story of Edmond Ovasapyan, a young man who was wrongfully arrested and prosecuted for murder in Glendale, California in 2009.

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 War on Terrorism
