Make Abundance the Solution

When abundance exists, cooperation is the norm.  Everyone works together to get the more of more than sufficient resources.  When scarcity exists, politics is the norm.   Everyone works to get disproportionate amounts of limited resources.

Today there is a scarcity of jobs so politics has become the norm.  There has been very little cooperation, as exemplified by the inaction of Congress and the President.  And the politics has become much more divisive.

Instead of focusing on how to divide limited declining resources, our leaders should think about how to create abundance.   Instead of deciding which segment should pay more taxes, government should think about how to increase the breadth of the tax paying base.  Perhaps then everyone can work together to solve (instead of politicizing) the issues and prevent a future economic crisis.

For more on Strategies and Plans, check back every Monday for a new segment.
