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.
This is the second article in a three article series on Regional Governance.
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.
