Q: What do we do after the BLUE WAVE? [View all]

A: WE FLIP THE ECONOMIC PYRAMID

Q: How do we flip the economic pyramid?

A: We return to the New Deal, which worked amazingly well. We get serious about a progressive tax which means tax the upper brackets a lot more and the lower brackets less. THEN we (smartly) allocate funds for physical and intellectual infrastructure roads, schools, and environmental protections. We create the conditions for a robust PEOPLE's ECONOMY. Cultivate a healthy emergent system. It's really a traditional and highly effective idea with new biological theories to support it. See E.O. Wilson on emergent systems.

Q: What's a people's economy?

A: It's not one where corporations get all the concessions and tax breaks and everyone else gets crumbs and have to compete against those propped up behemoths. In a people's economy small business has leverage again and "small" includes both a small family restaurant or plumbing outfit all the way down to an individual getting a state-funded nursing degree or electrician's license.

Return America to the Americans! Thank ALL progressive Democrats for reminding us that we abandoned what was once working in this country: the New Deal.

Same old? Hell yeah! It worked! Let's get ready to do it again but better, with many lessons learned since the 1930s about INCLUDING women, the LGBTQ community, and all ethnicities and religious (and non-religious) persuasions.

I'm sick of doing three jobs. The pyramid must, and WILL be flipped.
