For many years, our economy, worldwide, has been getting more and more complex. This complexity feeds off and is fed by more complexity – regulations, investments, etc. etc.
This complexity has led to price fluctuations, nationwide collapses, and the widening gap between rich and poor.
Something has to give. It can’t be sustained. With wealth being sucked into a smaller and smaller upper crust where the differences in wealth become more and more staggering at the top. You can see a simple graphic representation of this at http://www.lcurve.org/
In *my* opinion, the best way to fix this problem is to pull out the complexity and return to a more naturally flowing economy where money is based on some fixed value and the extremely rich are brought into the same sort of fluid motion as everyone else.
I’m not against people making a buck or ever making a lot of bucks. I’m not even against getting rich. I just think it should be more based on merit of one’s business and done in a more level playing field.
But while a free and prosperous economy based on a sustainable monetary system is the goal, we not only have a long way to go in order to get there, but simply dropping all the regulations at once might cause a major disaster just as easily foreseeable as the one we will surely enter into slowly by continuing to increase economic complexity and imbalance.
Something has to give and soon.
As a US Senator, I hope to help facilitate a change to help the US lead the world into such a free, stable, and sustainable economy.
At this time, I would like to ask for YOUR HELP in developing the right plan. Email your suggestions on how to improve out economy to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will consider them and try and find the best solution among your suggestions.
As YOUR REPRESENTATIVE in Washington, I hope to make our nation better by representing YOU. In that regard, YOUR OPINION matters a LOT to me.
