An absolutely shocking account of this has come from Home Depot executives, who warn that the nation’s out of control opioid crisis has sparked a massive surge in thefts in stores across the country.

Bloomberg says the thefts have been so bad in 2019, that it will likely weigh on Home Depot’s operating profit margins next year.

“This is happening everywhere in retail,” Chief Executive Officer Craig Menear told investors on a Wednesday morning call.

“We think this ties to the opioid crisis but we’re not positive about that.”

Home Depot is the first retailer to suggest that the opioid crisis has sparked a recent surge in in-store thefts.

The National Retail Federation has said retailers lose, on average, $51 billion per year, but that number is likely to climb in the years ahead due to the opioid crisis.

In one instance, Menear told investors during the call that thieves were apprehended by law enforcement after attempting to steal $16.5

Ross Ulbricht, serving life without parole for allegedly running the Silk Road marketplace, hasn’t allowed his detention to deprive him from monitoring bitcoin’s price action. In a new blog series titled Bitcoin by Ross, Ulbricht reveals that he is closely attuned to BTC’s price movements, and shares some suggestions as to where the market might be headed next.

Bitcoin Analysis Without the Noise

There are few advantages to being locked up in a maximum security facility, but one unexpected benefit is being able to monitor bitcoin minus the noise of crypto Twitter that can color attempts at analysis. Ross Ulbricht has used this edge to construct an analysis of bitcoin’s price movements over the last decade, and to predict where the cryptocurrency might be headed next.

In the first six installments of Bitcoin by Ross, the Silk Road founder explains Elliot Wave Theory, and how it can be applied to bitcoin. The series starts by answering a question that many fol

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”—C.S. Lewis

“Taxman,” the only song written by George Harrison to open one of the Beatles’ albums (it featured on the band’s 1966 Revolver album), is a snarling, biting, angry commentary on government greed and how little control “we the taxpayers” have over our lives and our money.

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,

If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.

If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,

If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for

If you don’t want to pa
