The war on poverty is often debated, praised, and criticized in the United States. I’m going to take a different approach to the war on poverty that is never really talked about. The fundamental restructuring of the U.S. economy by exporting the old industries out of America. Replacing them with new industries in space, telecommunications, computer technologies, and computer languages. This was in the 1960s, the whole war on poverty was to raise the standard of the population(wages, salaries), create new industrial clusters, and exploit old industries in newly freed colonies to help them develop their economies in the struggle against the Soviet Union.
This is a first of a two-part series on the attempted transformation of the U.S. government to better support the economy.
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.
