THE ENDURING LEGACY OF DONALD J. TRUMP

The following is from October 22, 2020, when COVID-19 deaths were running at about 1,100 a day:

Faulty US Covid-19 response meant 130,000 to 210,000 avoidable deaths, report finds
By Maggie Fox, October 22, 2020

The Trump Administration’s faltering response to the coronavirus pandemic has led to anywhere between 130,000 and 210,000 deaths that could have been prevented, according to a report released Thursday by a team of disaster preparedness experts.

Insufficient testing, a lack of national mask mandates or guidance, a delayed overall response and outright mocking of basic public health practices by the administration has put the United States at the top of the global coronavirus death toll, the report from Columbia University Earth Institute’s National Center for Disaster Preparedness finds.

“We estimate that at least 130,000 deaths and perhaps as many as 210,000 could have been avoided with earlier policy interventions and more robust federal coordination and leadership,” the report reads.

The following is December 17, 2020, when deaths are running at about 3,000 a day:

U.S. COVID Deaths on December 17, 2020: 3,438; Total deaths: 313,797.

 

…………………………..

This is the near future:

This week’s national ensemble forecast predicts that the number of
newly reported COVID-19 deaths will likely increase over the next 4 weeks,
with 15,800 to 27,700 new deaths likely to be reported in the week ending
January 9, 2021.

The national ensemble predicts that a total of 357,000 to 391,000 COVID-19 deaths
will be reported by this date.

And this will be the enduring legacy:

THE ENDURING LEGACY OF DONALD J. TRUMP

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

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. Social Security for all or a reverse income tax
  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.
