Regional Thinking Pt. 3 Six Californias and (Six New Yorks, Texas’s and Florida’s)

This is a great idea after the first two proposals (1 and 2) for reforms to the government and economy of the U.S. This is the best idea to advance democracy and strengthen the republic at the same time. The left/right debate has been vaporized in the election of President Trump where the body politic was expecting someone out of the political world but got something that was totally unexpected. The destruction of two political dynasties which was the Bush and Clinton political families. Gov. Jeb Bush in the Republican side and Madame Secretary Hillary Clinton on the Democratic Side.

I don’t want to dwell into the 2016 election any longer since it was last year and it was an election that I wanted to end very quickly. Instead of the political left/right crap but actually, reforms and ideas to help the coming generation come into its own. This is the way to actually make the institutions of government respond and reflect the will of its citizens. The problem with American Democracy is the same old theme that many people are saying. It’s not tyranny, dictatorship, or Neo-Hitlerian thoughts (Alt-right, White supremacy, or Neo Confederacy) and I not saying there are no racial problems in the country. It’s taxation without representation.

I argue the question that is on the public, political scientists, historians and politicians mind is that why is the public will is never reflected in the outcome in bills.

Michael Lind is going deeper into the debate that needs to be started and solved:

“Nobody should underestimate the power of inertia in American politics.  But we will never have any progress, if we accept stupid things just because they are old.

At this point, to the tune of “Yankee Doodle” on a fife and drum, somebody in the peanut gallery will object that our system represents the “genius of the Founding Fathers.”  Sorry, peanut gallery patriots — the major Founders hated the overrepresentation of small states in the Senate.  For most of their political careers, Alexander Hamilton favored more centralization, while the “Father of the Constitution,” James Madison (except early in his career), was for states’ rights.  But these two co-authors of the Federalist Papers agreed that states should be represented in the Senate on the basis of population and that the compromise in the Constitution that gave each state two senators, no matter its size, was a mistake.

In the guise of denouncing the Articles of Confederation, Hamilton made his feelings clear in Federalist No. 22:

The right of equal suffrage among the States is another exceptionable part of the Confederation. Every idea of proportion and every rule of fair representation conspire to condemn a principle, which gives to Rhode Island an equal weight in the scale of power with Massachusetts, or Connecticut, or New York; and to Delaware an equal voice in the national deliberations with Pennsylvania, or Virginia, or North Carolina. Its operation contradicts the fundamental maxim of republican government, which requires that the sense of the majority should prevail…. It may happen that this majority of States is a small minority of the people of America; and two thirds of the people of America could not long be persuaded, upon the credit of artificial distinctions and syllogistic subtleties, to submit their interests to the management and disposal of one third. The larger States would after a while revolt from the idea of receiving the law from the smaller.”

Michael Lind –Break up the states! The case for the United Statelets of America

We need to reform the Senate and allow the big states to be fully represented in the Senate where democracy has been missing for about 240 years. (241 if you include July 4, 2017) Michael Lind goes deeper into the into the sanity of representation of big states population in the Senate:

“If we assume that microstates like Wyoming are not going to give up their two U.S. senators, then macrostates like California, Texas, Florida and New York should voluntarily divide themselves, in order to boost their representation in America’s upper house.  Under the Six Californias plan, for example, residents of present-day California would send 12 senators to Washington, not two.”

“And because they are smaller, the successor states to the Former California would be more citizen-friendly.  A citizen of Wyoming, Vermont, North Dakota or Alaska — the four least populous states — has a much better chance of influencing the legislature or arranging an appointment with the governor than does a citizen of California or Texas who is not backed by an army of lobbyists or hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

“Why not form new states within the jurisdictions of the existing megastates? Why not divide in order to rule? This is not as crazy as it sounds. Commentator Walter Russell Mead has suggested that no American should have to live in a state with more than 4 or 5 million citizens. If the 4-million-population rule were applied to the large states, California might be subdivided into eight new states; Texas, five; New York and Florida, four; Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Ohio, three; and Michigan and New Jersey, two.

Eight Californias? Five Texases? Four New Yorks? Why not?

That includes four Florida’s in this new way of thinking. Redistricting is going to have a new meaning where instead of not only congressional districts but also regional governors for manage these new areas. The only thing that I disagree with Michael Lind is the creation of new states. You could keep the same states but treat the new “statelets” as regions within a state like a district.

Let evolve our institutions and perfect the union! Mr. Draper is on to something big!!!!

Why venture capitalist Tim Draper wants to divide California into six states (interview)

Founding Purpose: “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”

The mechanism for achieving this goal is Capitalism and Democracy.

Regional Thinking Pt. 2 – Regional Mayors and Govenors

The greatest challenge to the United States Post WWII and the Post Cold War era where the U.S was in a deep competition with the Soviet Union. The issues of threats changed from being external to now being internal. The evolution of Globalization/Americanization has contained threats and challenges. Challenges that the United States had to call upon its population to enlist/commission in its armed services and sometimes tragically giving life and limbs to values that are enshrined today. In the first post, I explained the net gains of consolidations of institutions to expand the power of markets in the Continental United States.

With the transforming and evolution of the global economy in the 21st Century. Reforms are needed to keep up with the pace of change and adapt to the world where changes are happening whether you like it or not. The U.S. is at a point in its history where if the right decisions and investments are made. We could be talking about the next American century and the concept of the true pax americana where the world is less focused on warfare and the concept of commerce, eCommerce, and science. This will help the U.S. compete in the next coming century with more players in the game. (China, India, Latin America, Middle East/North Africa, and Africa)

The concept of Regional Mayors and Governors will help the economy change where political infighting has shown that the politics and lawmakers are holding back the progress of the U.S. Polls after polls showed that people do not see each other and politicians and natural disasters, and terrorism as threats to their livelihood. The last eight years and another four to maybe another eight years showed that the U.S. cannot have political incompetence. This will continue to bog down future administrations where the list of things to do adds up and the crisis always bring the political deadlock.

Regional Mayors will help to expand cities that would help to harmonize laws, public works, and investment deals where instead of one city looking for cluster placement. A series of twenty or thirty cities will bring attention to these areas with a large pool of customers, human capital, and financial capital. This would increase of hitting power of American cities, towns, and rural areas that are seeking investments. This should make it easier for Regional Governors to collaborate with local and county officials.

 

Regional Governor will help dissolved the political deadlock by bringing business, trade, and cultural differences to expand the market. Public Health, Public Services, Infrastructure and working business will help develop these areas into mega regions. With differed districts, one for commerce and another for military/law enforcement will assist and enforce the commercial consolidation. The website for the Council of Governors states the following and research should be put into this Council:

“The Council of Governors (Council) was created by the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2008 and formally established by Executive Order 13528, issued on January 11, 2010. The Council is intended to serve as a mechanism for governors and key federal officials to address matters pertaining to the National Guard, homeland defense and defense support to civil authorities.” 

Military/National Guard/FEMA/                                  Commerce consolidation based on the

Law Enforcement Districts                                                      U.S. Federal Reserve Districts

This should help with help institutions with adjusting to not only the commercial realities but includes a law enforcement/military institutions for white collar, cyber crimes, and natural disasters that will certainly take place.

Neo Federal Reserve (Mega Capitalism)

I hope everyone is enjoying their new year and I wanted to jump start this blog because of the major risk and uncertainty that is accelerating in the coming months. The incoming Trump Administration has something that 44 presidents had before them in terms of a record to come off. The President-elect soon to be President has no record or background in politics to reference off and that has a lot of people terrified.  I see this as a major opportunity to open doors and destroy intellectually wasteful left/right debate in this country’s politics.

The first issue, I come to terms with not playing stupid gotcha left/right politics and creating opportunities for major reforms that are needed in the global economy because of the advancement of globalization, institutional changes to integrate new technological clusters into the economy, and consolidations needed to resolve conflict and risk. This central theme for the next for post will be about creating fluid economic institutions to deal with a post gold standard economy.

The real stress is the economy that no one is talking about is the economy is expanding fastest than the present institutions can handle. To handle the major change and bring certainty and fluidity back to the market. Before we continue any further on this post. We have to define the two policies affecting the economy right now:

“Monetary policy involves changing the interest rate and influencing the money supply. Fiscal policy involves the government changing tax rates and levels of government spending to influence aggregate demand in the economy.”

Difference between monetary and fiscal policy | Economics Help

www.economicshelp.org/blog/1850/…/difference-between-monetary-and-fiscalpolicy/

 

We need to acknowledge that we are in a shotgun wedding when it comes to the economy, treaties, and trade pacts. There is no way out of this or around it because the only autonomous nation on the planet is North Korea(they’re leveraged with food by the Chinese). We need to understand and create dialogue to address the structural shortcomings and the measures to resolve it. What I’ll love to inject into the debate is that we do not need so much tension where political showdowns and battles translate into market uncertain which delays investments, contracts, and implementation of business decisions from c-suite.

The first issue I’m going to tackle is reforms of the Central Banks or commonly known as the Bretton Woods system to adapt to the current market of emerging markets, globalization, declining and evolving technological clusters, and upgrades to the current infrastructure. Basel III is the current structure of the global economy in terms of banks and the holdings they are required to have to keep the banks running. This could be a founding of Basel IV where the new changes in the tax code are updated across the world.

I don’t have an economics, finance, or high-level math degree to work out the equations but the three areas that will explode the economy with a capital rich environment is these three areas: capital requirements, leverage ratio, and liquidity requirements. With the updated tax plan and policies suggested in this blog will help to reverse the declining clusters around the world.

The picture shows the role of the central banks in the country:

I’m proposing a consolidation of the top 8 central banks into a new central bank system with the U.S. and the U.K. The top financial cities(New York and London) being in those countries and the growth which is small but compares to the rest of the world. It already has the institutions in their borders and people are used to these nation leading:

8 Central Banks You Need to Know

Taking the top 8 Central Banks and putting into the U.S. Federal Reserve System and the U.K.’s Bank of England can help to resolve and bring efficiency back to the markets.

  1. US Federal Reserve Bank (USD)
  2. European Central Bank (EUR)
  3. Bank of England (GBP)
  4. Bank of Japan (JPY)
  5. Swiss National Bank (CHF)
  6. Bank of Canada (CAD)
  7. Reserve Bank of Australia (AUD)
  8. Reserve Bank of New Zealand (NZD)

Take the bottom banks and put it into the U.S. Federal Reserve System:


The same is on the bottom and will create a Dual Branches of the Federal Reserve system that will reduce the number of central banks policies to contend with and make business decisions easier.

Take the bottom banks and put it into the Bank of England and it will help to reduce the danger of currency fluctuations and harmonize monetary policy around the World. Moving and splitting the Bank of International Settlements into both the U.S. and U.K. will help shake up the mix. I know what everyone is thinking (What about Brexit?)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This first series of reforms will help to create an environment to adapt to the changing world.

Improving Police and Communities Relations

San-Diego-Police

This post I’m not going to use any references or links to other pages to discuss this post. It’s a post on an issue that is not unsolvable or doomed to repeat for generations. The Police are needed and to be respected but we need better policies to prevent peace officers becoming tactical 24/7. The free market approach to the criminal justice system is now an anti growth policy. This affects the economy, communities, and the reputation of the United States. This blog post will lay out a way to resolve this issue for once and for all.

Ferguson, Baltimore, and the tragic losses of Tamir Rice, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray. The first issue is the (suppose) pathological nature of black men and communities that are a pumped through the media. The issue with black neighborhoods is the absence and leaving of individuals who would comprise the black middle class. The black middle class is 1 trillion dollars but none of that s going to revitalize black neighborhoods, black schools, black colleges, and forming black corporations.

The second issue is the heavy metal contamination in the black community such as lead, mercury, and arsenic. Children born in these neighborhoods are unable to compete in the economy which that creates a lower, inferior, and different mindset that affects inner city black communities (especially black men). This breeds (why should I try) in the minds of at risk black youth. If an environmental and renewal program that hires these youth to knock down and rebuild their communities. The effect on the black unemployment will drop and the skills acquired by youth will help them move on to other fields.

Crime Prevention

The government paying people not to shoot each other, paying schoolchildren to get “A’s” and staying on the honor roll, dean’s list, and going to college will help get young children into these new technological clusters will destroy the chronic unemployment which cannot be absorbed by the economy. This will help drop the inmate recidivism rate where because of how the penalty for felonies is defined. You cannot get certain jobs, can’t vote or re-educate yourself. This how you can reconstruct black neighborhoods where you could return the black middle class to further reduce the disparity.

The reforms being proposed for the U.S. Criminal Justice system are good and a start but it is a beginning process of undoing decades of harm and injustice. Another option no one is talking about is having black business people join the Fraternal Order of Police. The problem in black neighborhoods is the perception of just thugs, drugs, and prostitutes. One credit I give Fox News and the conservative media is the highlight of black businesses during Ferguson and Baltimore. No one talks about building loans, grants, credit to develop these businesses in black neighborhoods.

This will help get at risk communities all over the country into this new technological age where no one can say that no one cares.

Nextgen – A model for reform of American Government

10143793-large

The changing environment of aviation will yield untold benefits for the market. Consolidations of the major powers to increase competitiveness with the U.S. economy will produce competition.  These changes will force U.S. policy makers to re-examine certain viewpoints in regards to government and the free market. The coming traffic of 1 billion flyers will force many aspects of the FAA to change to meet the increasing demand for air travel. Wired magazine tells a great story about Brian Howard who wanted to leave the earth but wanted to damage the U.S. Air Traffic Control System marking his unfortunate demise.

Brian ultimately showed the how outdated and ineffective the current system “HOST” is for the U.S. The FAA responded with the next generation system to replace HOST named “NextGen.” The Aviation Innovation, Reform, and Reauthorization (AIRR) Act is a possible model for reform with another initiative called U.S. Digital Service. This can create new high tech jobs with the ability not to be outsourced which will help with clusters in the U.S. from declining in the short run.

Saab-rTWR-control-550

This example can be applied to other government agencies like the VA health system, Federal and State infrastructure, and the U.S. education system where it is still in government control and can direct a centralized education system but it has the ability to fire people. The U.S. Government need to be reformed to compete in this high speed/high tech world.

NAU UK (Advancing NAFTA and adding the U.K. to strengthen the U.S. Economy)

naftas300_Global_invest-export_light_paths

I’m a CNBC/Bloomberg junkie and I just can’t go a day without seeing what news stories about Brexit which I think is another opportunity for the United States. With the regional thinking that is the central theme of this website and I was thinking this “how consolidation might work for the standard bearers of the English language”. I’m a critic of NAFTA and the damage it has caused to Mexico’s agriculture, labor, and environmental standards but with a reformed tax system can remedy the chaos.

Here is the definition from Investopedia about Brexit:

“The Brexit, an abbreviation of “British exit” that mirrors the term Grexit, refers to the possibility of Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union. A number of British political parties support a referendum on EU membership; the most prominent are the Conservative Party, which has promised a 2017 in/out referendum if it wins the May 2015 General Election”

With the polls gaining support and the U.K’s business community feels constrained by the E.U. regulations. I agree with their argument that they should focus on the America, India, and China than the E.U. which has different institutions that are descended from the Napoleonic Code which will not work in the U.K.’s case. The net gain for Britain joining NAFTA will help American exports with the net gain of 63,182,000 new customers. That adding about (*)1.5 new California’s, about two Texas’s and about three New York State’s. This is excluding immigration from the newly form trading block which can dominate in this age of urbanization around the world (esp. India and China).

The common cultural, language, and liberal values on the economy, defense, education, scientific development will advance R&D in the new alliance. For the capital markets, this new alliance will bring all of the top exchanges in the fold under a single banner. The TMX (Toronto Stock Exchange) and LSE (London Stock Exchange) can help the transiting to the Monster NYSE by giving small companies the experience of going public without the hassle of the Sarbanes–Oxley Act (SOX) which can take up to 5% of the companies’ budget. With a history and background in the smaller but influential capital markets would help keep new wealth begin created. This is nothing but benefits for all parties involved in the adding of the U.K. into the NAFTA agreement.

IAIN MURRAY AND JAMES C. BENNETT has a great idea for a post-E.U. Britain:

“Britons also feel at home south of the Canadian border. Contrary to an oft-repeated myth, links between Britain and the United States are not reducible to the personal relationships between presidents and prime ministers. The U.S. and the U.K. have always been each other’s, primary financial partners. A few simple measures could substantially deepen this relationship, especially once Britain no longer needs to adhere to EU rules.”

“Foremost among these would be to admit a post-EU Britain to the North American Free Trade Agreement. Nafta is not a perfect vehicle, but it has the enormous advantage of already existing, with a nearly 20-year track record behind it. And unlike the EU, Nafta would not seek to impose a single social vision on its members. For example, Nafta has had no effect on Canadian social policy, which is very similar to Britain’s—except for Canada having more revenue to pay for it all.”

Let’s not forget about the four top universities working together

Harvard, Yale, Cambridge, and Oxford University with all the top universities in the U.S. and U.K. would create an R&D, Educational, and Scientific Giant.

Regional Thinking (Creating a Friendlier Environment for Competitiveness)

usa_statesusmap3

The age of the states is over in the global economy as regional and multilateral agreements are becoming the norm. ASEAN, AIIB, EU, BRIC and the IBSA-trilateral are becoming more common. The regional consolidation based on the Federal Reserve System would bring great benefits to the U.S. Instead of 50 different systems, a reduction to 12 will help corporations, small business, and individuals with their decisions. This will help in developing the mega region/corridor system (Staple Corridors (Global Cities)) that was posted two articles ago. The ease of business will go up as when you have multiple parties that agree to a single agreement.

Now, I’m not saying to get rid of the 50 states but put a layer above them to compete with the coming Indian and Chinese age. I say look at the Chinese province’s system to become more competitive. Each of the provinces has about the same population as about 5 to 6 European countries. The way to make America continue to be a powerhouse in this age is reforms, innovation, and consolidations. With the weight of multiple states and governors behind them makes the business environment in the U.S. very favorable and friendly.

2050_Map_Megaregions2008

This mega region/corridor can be a model for the development of the U.S. economy. To see the strengths of each region please look here: http://www.america2050.org/megaregions.html.

Instead of States, you’ll begin to look at America’s regional clusters which are the reason for the U.S.A being so strong. Resources, institutions, and funding could be directed to these areas to diversify, improve, or invest in new tech or business clusters.

The Hamilton Institute calls for the Regional Plan Association to be expanded to each one of these districts. Since there are 12 Fed districts then there should be 12 RPA’s devoted to theses districts. Please see here: http://www.rpa.org/

World Standard English (Globish)

9780393062557_300

I’m no qualms about developing the global economy and this is the way is bond the global economy. The spread of the English language which difficulty has been a barrier to its rapid spread but with the advent of Globish has simplified it by using 1500 words from the English language to create a pass into the English. Robert McCrum has written a book on the spread of Globish. He states:

“Is an overwhelmingly economic phenomenon—the language of Singaporean businessmen closing deals with the help of a small arsenal of English words, and of European officials calming financial markets by uttering stock phrases on television.”

Globlish can dissolve borders and tensions between people because they can speak the same language. It will help for people to understand and learn from each other. Also, they could communicate to each other the political and cultural mistakes that they made which would help new economies develop. They would do some much good not only to the U.S. but the global economy.

 

maxresdefault

This picture above shows the simplicity that happens when Globish is used when compared to the Full English language. Frederick A Allen quoted Michael Sakpinker in FT that said:

“When a Japanese employee met a Belgian, a Chilean and an Italian, they managed. None spoke English brilliantly but each knew the others were making mistakes too. When an American or British manager walked in, everything changed. The native speakers talked too fast and used mysterious expressions.” 

Globish is opening doors all over the world.

EnglishInTheWorld-Filled-Complete

This chart from the show the English as the First Language Initiative shows the most impoverish and violent nation are the nation outside the English Language.

I’m leaving this quote from “Globish for Beginners” which states the opportunities of having Globish spreading around the world.

“With Macaulay’s backing, schools instructed Indian students in English, a language that offered “ready access to all the vast intellectual wealth, which all the wisest nations of the earth have created and hoarded in the course of ninety generations,” whereas Sanskrit and Arabic offered only “false taste and false philosophy.”

Countering GMD and Hardening the Communications Sector

sunspot_med carrington-event-1859

Solar flares, geomagnetic disturbances, and the Carrington Flare (event) are a threat. Significant attention and debates need to be held in the public space on the risks these events pose to humanity.  This is an opportunity to create jobs, devote more resources into space, and help the technology to be developed to help counter the effect on the global economy. The many countless lives and the crimes that will be prevented from a fully function grid will help keep society in order. Future Generations will thank us for getting this started.

The Carrington Flare (or Event) was a solar event that happens on Friday, September 1, 1859. The solar flare hit the earth and was one of the largest solar storms recorded. In the early 19oo’s the impact on the communication and economy was felt. The telegraph system was nearly fried and paper caught on fire. The event was the biggest event that experts in the field say. If an event happens like that again today it would totally wreck our lifestyle.

Earth magazine has a very detail explanation of the horrific damage that will happen all over the world if we do not start to work out ways to shield infrastructure from this.

The Sinaloa Corporation (Bringing the Narco State into the global economy)

The Hamilton Institute has taken a real detail look at its last post and made this post to counter the criticisms of one area that is fueling the insecurity of the United States. Integration and decriminalization will help with co-association of all elements in System D in the overall economy to help alleviate poverty. The drug war is not working and is causing unneeded harm to the most vulnerable in society. The Hamilton Institute calls for a detailing of specific strengths of each cartel and pay them not to kill, deal, and retrain the members to end the horrific violence that is going on.

The Hamilton Institute calls for the creation of the Sinaloa Corporation from the elements of the Sinaloa Federation. The 2016 election is showing the changing marijuana climate in the U.S and the research of Columbia University Neuroscientist Carl Hart. The drug war has only produce insecurity, shrinking of the economy, and removal of voting rights for at risk communities. This further creates a cycle that destroys normal people who would live their life. The Sinaloa Corporation would be a marijuana, opioid, energy conglomerate that is publicly traded. Even El Chapo said he wants out of the drug business:

“I give in to the sense of security offered by the calm of Chapo and his men. There is the pervasive feeling that if there were a threat, they would know it. We eat, drink, and talk for hours. He is interested in the movie business and how it works. He’s unimpressed with its financial yield. The P&L high side doesn’t add up to the downside risk for him. He suggests to us that we consider switching our career paths to the oil business. He says he would aspire to the energy sector, but that his funds, being illicit, restrict his investment opportunities. He cites (but asks me not to name in print) a host of corrupt major corporations, both within Mexico and abroad. He notes with delighted disdain several through which his money has been laundered, and who take their own cynical slice of the narco pie.”

The model is the Prohibition era which you had the same murder, mass shootings, and conflicts in the 1920’s with the mob. Many who made their money that way moved away from the illegal activities when they began to integrate with society. The best way to end the illegal activities is to dissolve System D and begin the process of normalization towards some sectors of it. El Mayo of the Sinaloa Federation said it best in 2010:

“The problem of drug trafficking involves millions [of people],” Zambada said. “How do you control that? As for the drug lords, whether they’re locked up, killed or extradited, their replacements are already there lurking.”
