Economy: Depressions and Prosperity October 18, 2020
A Depression is the condition of being economically and socially below standard causing widespread poverty and unemployment. Economical decline in business activity and falling prices.
Depressions are caused by something affecting the ability of a society to express it’s innate prosperity. They are a natural occurrence of furthering or getting to God’s Kingdom. They are an expression or symptom of a problem within a society. And given Our nature to travel/sightsee, experience, and trade with other cultures (see my ebook, ‘A Short Paper: Understanding Our World and How To Make It Better God’s Way’), we are and have been creating a World Economy. So, one depressed society can cause depression within another society and possibly the World. Basically, developed nations should maintain their economies while supporting the development of new economies, societies, to increase prosperity in the World. Depressions should not normally or naturally be caused by government policy. However, wars, military and trade, for example, can cause depressions.
Moreover, it is things that are shared in bulk by societies which affect our societies and the World Economy the most, like currencies, food, and all transportation. These things being equal and plenty would reduce depressions, both societal and World.
Societies, America for example, like people and companies, can over invest, spend too much money and cause a depression. America has done so in her mission of fighting for and bringing liberty and justice for all (The current Administration has exacerbated the costs of bringing liberty and justice to others by not working for the care of America’s citizens). However, she has done so with the backing, help, and support of the majority of the World’s powers, developed nations. She has not stood alone. One good reason is the sharing of America’s philosophy that liberty and freedom brings prosperity, her ability to produce goods, her ingenuity, and advanced military. And while America has led this battle of poverty and freedom other nations have continued to improve their own societies and economies, and have become more capable of aiding the needy in the World. In some cases, the work or fruit of aid is hidden in the simple act of immigration/integration, even if it is temporary. Immigration coupled with integration can help reduce the effects of depression, both on the people of a society and the World.
Certainly then, national governments’ decisions do have an effect on a societies economy when eliminating poverty and can cause depressions but when done for the greater good it’s returns are realized ‘ten fold’. It is the national powers of the World deploying it’s best Governments for the task at hand in spreading liberty and freedom, not unlike a military deploying it’s best battle group, like an elite corps for a battle mission.
You can’t forget the Statue of Liberty in New York given by France in 1886 and it’s coming to mean or represent the work for liberty, justice, and freedom.
Wealth disparity has grown because the majority of people still need and use the services provided by companies and industries while the people’s income has been greatly reduced. But, more important, the people of most of these companies have adequate income, savings, and their healthcare has been well underwritten albeit more than likely expensive. We shouldn’t be blaming companies for wealth disparity when it is for us and our government to calculate. Our government being the professionals to which this task should be levied.
Most of these companies have done much greater good than harm by understanding or realizing the political and economical environment for which they operate. And, let us not forget the cyber wars these companies have been fighting for decades now with little governmental help because we, our government, has not yet invested in it. Perhaps because there is not enough money. Perhaps our government is doing all it can do with what personnel they have. This cyber war will likely get worse.
It is also possible to have more money than can be deployed as a returnable investment at any one time. It is often futuristic, on the table however (like saving money for a rainy day, so to speak). This can be a very difficult environment to work in.
For a fuller understanding of our Economy, I refer you to my ebook, ‘The World Economy’. So, inadequate income, savings, healthcare, and tax policies are causing a depression in America not well managed and invested companies in good financial standing.
Had we listened to Democrats four years ago we probably would have avoided this situation. We were on the rise after coming out of the World’s Great Recession of 07′-09′. We still have our Economy. Technically, it can be returned to but will need work and improvements. But it needs to be started again and we can’t really do that until we are safe and healthy. We can’t even go to school. We are running on bare bones, missing many cylinders and it is our essential workers, those who provide for our everyday needs, who are afflicted the most and experiencing the most misery.
Education is another component of prosperity and is lacking in many areas of the World and among minorities in America which is affecting their ability to work and it shows up in America it shows up in numbers and is dubbed discrimination in many of our companies/industries. But quotas for hiring will not work; that’s been tried. This shows up as depression in a society as well. It is true that people who work can not indefinitely support people who do not work without going into debt as America has. Humans are meant to work and share and participate in their societies/economy. One person can only produce enough for so many other people. Money can be pooled as with a government for better service of unemployed but one needs opportunity and the means to work for a society to be prosperous. A Society can also pool money at the government/federal level and provide education for everyone no matter where they live!
I’ll tell you what else may be bothering everyone and that is having a president who uses the powers instilled by our Constitution to the presidential office for quicker response to situations having negative impact to our nation, society, and people for instilling his own undeclared policies which are causing great harm to our nation. He is a fraud. People may find no advantage in direct action against him until he is gone.
