    Ep 54 | Mass Hysteria Strikes Again! How to Recognize the Threat and How to Cope with it.

    Are we all logical, thoughtful human beings when it comes to money? The rising price of Tesla stock would suggest no. The $700,000,000 that smart investors sunk into Theranos would also suggest that for most of us, emotions seriously impact our financial decisions. What is more, we are also susceptible to mass hysteria. That’s right; mass hysteria—when many people come to believe passionately with irrepressible conviction in things that are unprovable and even unlikely. Things like, oh let’s see, witches in colonial Massachusetts, evil clowns torturing toddlers in their preschool dungeon, and, oh yes, climate change threatens our way of life. Wait till you hear what was supposed to happen in 2020 according to 97% of scientists in 2004. And while we’re on that 97% of scientists twaddle you’ve heard a thousand times, your rabbi clears it all up once and for all in today’s show. How long have you owned your Tesla? Well, the battery warranty might be expiring and you know what it’s like when your tired phone starts needing recharging by lunchtime. You do know that the battery in your Tesla is exactly like your phone battery only bigger, right? Why I’d rather own a Tesla than a Ford but I’d rather own Ford stock than Tesla stock. Why socialism makes sense to so many otherwise smart & successful people. Why the Bible favors private ownership over public ownership. Is it moral to use force to protect your property? I tell you why you might want to visit https://rabbidaniellapin.com/masterclass/ How the billionaires preening their virtue at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this week are saving the glaciers while being scolded by a Scandinavian schoolgirl. And many other frivolous and fun facts from your favorite rabbi.

    Ep 53 | Make More Money & Form and Maintain a Better Marriage Using This One Blueprint

    Ep 53 | Make More Money & Form and Maintain a Better Marriage Using This One Blueprint

    If you want to know how the world REALLY works, you must understand the counter-intuitive parts of life. Is it true that the better you know someone before marrying them, the better chance the marriage has of surviving? Should you postpone making an investment until you are 100% sure? Do you know what lies beyond the furthest star in the universe? What! You don’t? Edgar Allan Poe wrote The Raven while living in Baltimore—hence the name of the football team lucky enough to have Lamar Jackson. H. G. Wells wrote The Time Machine. What did both these writers understand that you don’t?  Clue: Jewish mathematician, Hermann Minkowski and his student, Albert Einstein both knew it as well. And you need to know it too. Knowing this thing helps in understanding something terribly important: The views of money and marriage that I lay before you today spring from the reliable soil of ancient Jewish wisdom. It is a radical view. Money and marriage are doomed to fade away into mere shadows and only a kind of union of the two will preserve and independent reality. Don’t be a tennis ball floating down the gutter of life.

    Ep 52 | Secrets of Jewish Genius: Debunking Stupid Theories & Disclosing True Secrets You Can Use

    Ep 52 | Secrets of Jewish Genius: Debunking Stupid Theories & Disclosing True Secrets You Can Use

    This show is for Happy Warriors, not for Tennis-Balls-Floating-Down-The-Gutter-of-Life. Every Happy Warrior repeatedly proclaims “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.” The “New York Times” published an article entitled ‘The Secrets of Jewish Genius’, which discussed the oft-noticed reality that an identifiable demographic numbering about one tenth of one percent of the world’s population has won 27 percent of Nobel Prizes in physics and 31 percent of the Nobel Prizes in medicine. And yes, Jewish men make up 54 percent of the world chess champions. In the show, I point out that none of this has anything to do with business success and making money, which is not IQ related. I also point out that I am definitely not boasting—I’ve known far too many really stupid coreligionists (all of whom vote wrong). Fortune is the result of knowing what I teach: ancient Jewish wisdom’s secrets of money. The article was instantly surrounded by a firestorm of controversy because it touched on the forbidden topic of IQ, all of which I explain in this show. What followed was a debate on what makes Jews so smart? Various theories, some credible, followed; but they never even whispered the most important explanation for IQ differences. Yes, IQ is largely an inherited trait, however, inter-generational statistical anomalies abound. You'll also learn the most devastating thing men do to harm their mental acuity and what they can do to improve their own intelligence as well as that of their children. Finalizing the raging dispute with Mrs. Lapin about beauty and confidence, I confide to you the details of how her remarkable confidence brought one of my dreams to life and gave me seven new ones.

    Ep 51 | Yes, Be Happy!  But How? Diagnosing & Curing Your Unhappiness, Fears, Anxieties & Worries | 1/4/20

    Do you try to be a moral person? That question makes no sense without some description of the moral framework in use. For some moral frameworks, slitting the throats of airline stewardesses and turning airplanes into flying bombs is a moral act. For other moral frameworks, the most moral act you can perform is driving an electric car. Self-righteous “climate activists” are just as smarmy as hypocrites of any other religion/moral framework. For Happy Warriors, one of the most moral things you can do is be happy. It is not nearly as easy as you might think, but it is a huge gift to the people you live and work with and also makes God proud of you. What causes you to feel down? Do you automatically need happy pills from your local friendly drug dealer or psychiatrist? In this show, your rabbi reveals how the world REALLY works in our universal quest for happiness. He also reveals what happens when he and Mrs. Susan Lapin have a disagreement; a big disagreement. We resolve it on air right here in front of you, in this show.

    Ep 50 | The Power of Confidence: How to Acquire it & Project it in Business & Relationships

    Ep 50 | The Power of Confidence: How to Acquire it & Project it in Business & Relationships

    Yes, I am of the view that male/female distinction is as fundamental and as important to the human experience as the distinction between light and dark and between good and evil. If that makes me a ‘sexist’, so be it. If a woman must choose between having beauty or self-confidence, which should she choose? If a man must make the same choice, which should he choose? In the show, I present a 12 Days of Christmas puzzle: the answer is 364. There are truly many benefits of having confidence. Where does it come from and how do you acquire it? What does Jamaican Olympic sprinter, Usain Bolt, have to do with it? Finally, learn the only reliable way to finally eliminate the existential threat of “climate change”.

    Ep 49 | Fearing Family Holiday Get-Togethers: Timeless Truths For Every Time & Place

    Ep 49 | Fearing Family Holiday Get-Togethers: Timeless Truths For Every Time & Place

    Children have always been bringing their girlfriends and boyfriends to family gatherings. Some things are true for all times and all places. Travel and transport is an eternal human reality. Always has been and always will be. Everywhere. People in the past may not have had Concorde airliners, Cadillacs or canoes, but they did have camels. And that is exactly what the camel represents throughout the Hebrew Bible. Money is another timeless truth. Maybe not checks and certificates of deposit, but some form of abstract representation of wealth has always been central to the human condition. Learn the truth about other eternal realities, such as playing the money card in family relationships, male-female relationships, and children relating to parents and parents relating to children. They may not always have had family therapists or messaging apps on their phones, but family members interacting with all the love, tension, complexity, and even occasionally, hatred, has always been a concern to humans everywhere. Finally, learn how money helps prevent interpersonal exploitation.
