The reason America, supposedly the richest nation, has so many poor and homeless, and starving children, EDUCATED CITIZENS UNABLE TO FIND ANY WORK AT ALL, and GDP is at about NOTHING… is because we have “developed” into a GARBAGE ECONOMY. Literally, if you look at the largest ‘industries’ – other than the military – they are NON-PRODUCTIVE! Campaigns, entertainment, etc. – all of these things – including the sports industry, hollywood, etc… result in Americans who DO have money – most of whom WORK for their money – spend it (apply their work to) things that simply DO NOT CONTRIBUTE to anything USEFUL. Such things should be taxed as luxuries – The problem is that our economy is full of JOBS at which the employed person goes to their workplace (burning tons of gasoline – or coal, if they drive a hybrid or electric car that they plug in to charge) – and what do we actually do, collectively, per dollar? What does the entire American economy, as a WHOLE, actually GET for its DOLLAR?
There is no “BANG for your BUCK” in terms of COLLECTIVE SOCIETY. If certain changes could be made, our entire nation could become SO MUCH STRONGER and INDEPENDENT – the so-called “middle class” could come ROARING back to life – and all of this could happen very quickly – within a matter of a few short years.
There is a huge demand for medical services, but the SUPPLY is LOW. Why? Because there are laws and structures in place – aka RED TAPE – that has begun to STRANGLE our nation!
There IS enough SUPPLY to meet the DEMAND. So WHY do I know so many people who CHOOSE NOT TO BECOME DOCTORS, even though they would LOVE TO DO SO? There’s an answer to that one. And WHY are so many women who have recently graduated from UNIVERSITIES with degrees FULLY QUALIFYING THEM to work in the field in which they have been trained and educated – who cannot find work, and become WAITRESSES?
I know psychology can be useful as a waitress or server (for both males and females)… but I don’t think FOUR YEARS OF COLLEGE is necessary. In fact, FOUR YEARS of COLLEGE is OVERRATED – and OVERPRICED!!
I have an entire set of blueprints with solutions. But they won’t be implemented. I have NO IDEA what to do with them.
One more thing: We’re sitting on our assets. Let’s get some SCIENCE and some FACTS and some REALITY introduced and INJECTED into POLICY to RESURRECT AMERICA.

Our Nation’s Failing Economy… a “Garbage Economy” – Medical Costs, Education Costs, WASTE, Entertainment, Starving Children, Supply and Demand, Medical COAL, Oil makes Plastic (and Syringes)
