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Brian ultimately showed the how outdated and ineffective the current system “HOST” is for the U.S. The FAA responded with the next generation system to replace HOST named “NextGen.”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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Also the two centers of global finance under one umbrella which is New York and London.
