The World is an economy of economies. An economy offers its members protection in return for service. In most cases the protection is monetized. Money is used as a reward for service. The amount of money is proportional to the amount of service rendered. Economic implies balance. When that balance is askew one or more of three conditions exists:
1) Ignorance, where decision makers don’t realize that certain people are overpaid, underpaid, over serviced or under serviced.
2) Ignore-ance, where decision makers realize that certain people are overpaid, underpaid, over serviced or under serviced, but they choose to ignore it.
3) Non Economic Conspiracy (NEC), where decision makers plan imbalance exploiting vulnerability They often use poverty, racial affiliation, religious affiliation, or political affiliation as an excuse for relegating certain members of the economic community to sub humanity.
Economic troubleshooting illuminates economic imbalances, identifies the cause, and improves the balance. It is seldom employed in larger economies because the decision makers want more than their share. Hiding in a veil of complexity, they ally themselves with people who are willing to exploit the system, and tilt the economic balance gleaning unearned personal gain.
Economic clarity is essential in protecting economic balance. With economic balance, rewards are proportional to service. Who gets what? and Why do they get it? These are the questions that economic troubleshooting investigates. Answering these two questions exposes the cause and degree of the imbalance. Economic clarity improves with simplicity and truthfulness. An economic policy by its very nature should not be complicated. Complication is fertile ground for the conditions that cause economic imbalance.
The term economic imbalance sounds clinical, but it is the root cause of most human catastrophes. War, crime, poverty, pollution, and depression are but a few of the conditions that are caused or exacerbated by economic imbalance. Economic balance is both a personal and a public responsibility. Nourish the future. Shift your weight to the top of the economic teeter-totter.
