The ancients knew the solution thousands of years ago.

Jubilee. The birthplace of civilization is collapsing. Shouldn't the protection afforded to threatened animals be extended to human beings. A sustaining wage full employment should be the focus of government. When a lot of people are working money is moving and economies are functioning. In view of all laws regarding preservation of animals and the environment validate the meaning of "progress". Progress is essentially cheaper and faster. Not cheaper, faster and thriving economy. It all points to the function of money.

Difference Between American League and National League

I questioned things that didn't make sense instead of just playing. When I was a kid I couldn't understand the difference between the two major leagues. Nobody could explain to me the reason there was a difference. Soon after I had the same problem with the stock market. I couldn't understand how money could be made by selling the same stock back and forth. When I figured out that money can't be made by selling stock back and forth I then got the same answer when I was a kid. Why do you have to ruin it with questions, just play the game.

Developing and Protecting Resources

This country and the people in it are a great resource for stabilizing and protecting the world. Conservative policies will deteriorate this resource. Instead of driving the dependent people into oblivion with negative tax policies we should protect and develop that resource with productive tax policies. Taxation should benefit the country. Rewarding entrepreneurs that invest in jobs producing ventures would benefit the country. More people working would generate more tax revenue to reward more jobs producing investors.

Effects and influences of the extreme ends of the widening income gap.

A subjective observation sees growing disrespect for law and order at each end of the money column. The higher end is fraught with self help. Expenditures to make more money easier is the technology. Front running is somehow legitimized on a limited basis. There is pressure pushing Dodd Frank aside to clear the way for another windfall before the crash. The social and financial effects of unlimited resources are expanding away from an economy. Goods and services are obsolete.

Simple solution that is an impossible task. Put people to work.

Instead of giving people a reason to die. e.g. Promising virgins or some other spiritual reward. Give them a reason to live. e.g. A life style sustaining job. Poor broke disheartened people are easy prey for any radical.
Money tends to solve problems. Jobs that can actually sustain life with a little extra discretionary cash would give people a reason to live and plan for the future. There are references to higher levels of crime and violence in low or no income neighborhoods. Eliminate those neighborhoods and there may be a drop in crime and violence.
