Poor and Middle Class don't grow and improve from the middle. That is one piece of advice that I would offer President Obama. Surely, we want to eliminate poverty and create a vibrant Middle Class, but that comes from genius invention and entrepreneurship. I think that is what some Republicans are trying to say.
Government has a big role to play in creating the optimal environment for economic prosperity. Today’s economic ideal must be built, engineered, toward sustainability. That begins with smart energy policy.
When the nation surrounds a smart energy policy with leadership and incentives, and defines the way ahead as a sustainable economy, then we are on the correct path for the future.
I created a picture to illustrate this. See the picture.
The primary purpose of government is to optimize the return on national resources. That begins with a renewable energy strategy that guides the transformation of all America toward self-sufficiency beginning with individuals and aggregating to a robust economy.
Ask me questions about this and I will be pleased to have a discussion.
