You write well, but your conclusions aren't backed by the latest Socioeconomic Analysis. There is always a 20-25 year window of acceptance by the Orthodoxy, in ALL Fields. We are at that point in Economics & History, as manufactured & actual data meet in Reality. The Definition of INSANITY is to do the SAME thing over & over, hoping 4 different results. We have been doing that in the West w/ Crime & Poverty 4 CENTURIES! The West has always MISTAKEN Advanced Technology 4 an #AdvancedSociety! To combat Economic SPIN used to control, & mislead, read #TheDeficitMyth for a Laymans primer 2 Macroeconomic Capacity. RESOURCES & Productive LABOR is what BACKS our Currency. Some allocations use FEW Resources, like Education, Healthcare, & SS, & others USE IMMENSE amts of Resources like the Military & Infrastructure. WHAT is our RETURN on those Investments? Then read Dr. Tcherneva's FIELD TESTED #TheFederalJobGuarantee for THE POSSIBILITIES! Economists have determined it is LESS EXPENSIVE & we would have a HEALTHIER Society & more Productive individually, by providing the Educational & Social Services & Healthcare, rather than on the continued punitive treatments of policing & incarceration 4 Profit! Rather than promote Equity, U buy into the DEBUNKED Myths of Meritocracy. For a LENS N2 Alternate & Healthier Societies, I also recommend the new & very erudite work of anthropologist & archeologists Graeber, & Wengrows, THE DAWN OF EVERYTHING!
