If you owned a business would you hire a lying, finger-pointing, excuse-making, incompetent, repeated-bankrupt con artist to run your business?

Monetary Sovereignty
Twitter: @rodgermitchell
Search #monetarysovereignty Facebook: Rodger Malcolm Mitchell



The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.

  1. And now Bernie Sanders sadly dropped out of the race today. Looks like America’s “dark night of the soul” that began with Ronnie Raygun in 1980 and culminated with Trump is about to get that much darker. And while the pandemic is finally slowing down (especially in my neck of the woods, New York), the real trouble (i.e. the next Great Depression, which could have been averted but the government was too stingy and not proactive enough) is unfortunately just beginning.


  2. $500 Billion when $5 Trillion Is needed. Next: The debt-nuts will tell us that the underfunded rescue “didn’t work.” It’s like feeding a starving man one pea. When he dies of starvation, that’s used as “proof” food doesn’t cure starvation.

    Pelosi, Schumer introduce $500 billion follow-up coronavirus relief package

    On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced their party was asking for an additional $250 billion in a so-called “CARES 2” act, doubling the size of the package McConnell had introduced.
