Running The Country "Like A Business"??

Recommended Posts

Who'd (even) suggest that....besides some extremely-greedy businessmen?

 

June 10, 2016 - "Fresco's 100th birthday bash, held days earlier at a convention center in Fort Myers, drew more than 600 fans.

 

For them, these rounded retro structures in the wilds of Florida are a hint of what could be: a master plan for a City of the Future without money, a place where all needs are met by technology.

 

That city, Fresco says, will be run not by politicians but by a central computer that will distribute resources as needed. It's a vision he's been working on for most of his life. “A machine doesn’t have emotions,” Fresco likes to say. “It’s not susceptible to corruption.”

The natural world is already set up like a computer. You are born, you live-eat for a short time and you cant take anything with you when you die. The corruption is in setting up a controlled unnatural world with unnatural selection.

Businesses are run to make a profit. Governments are run to provide services for the citizens.

A computerized community could be run as either of these. It could be incorruptible, it depends on the programmers.

I wonder if his vision includes forcing people that don't live in his utopia, to sacrifice wealth to support it. It will be susceptible to corruption because someone has to program that computer that is going to decide how to divide the resources in a fair manner.

Anyone who looks at the annual budget and sees the waste, and our $20 Trillion deficit, then hears democrats screaming like banshees if anyone DARES suggest federal spending be cut. Can you imagine anyone saying this country doesn't have a spending problem?

In a new report, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office warns that, unless action is taken, red ink will skyrocket over the next 25 years.

This is the problem. The government has evolved into a nanny and people have become dependent. Those of us who don't use the services are stuck footing the bill for those who do, generally. Example: black population.

"Marisa Mayer’s tenure as chief executive of Yahoo has not gone well. Ad revenue has dwindled. High-profile acquisitions have failed. Users’ personal info was breached — twice. Now, Verizon is set to acquire Yahoo for a fraction of its worth a decade ago. And in a few months, Meyer faces her punishment, as dictated by the free market: walking away with $186 million. Reports the New York Times: “All told, her time at Yahoo will have netted her well over $200 million.”

 

Government should be run like a business,” goes the quasi-proverb. In years past, Meyer’s golden parachute would be this month’s best evidence of why that supposed maxim makes little sense. But now that proof sits in the Oval Office.

 

As Donald Trump’s presidency reaches 100 days, we are seeing firsthand the results of a government run like a business, and the results are not pretty."

two decades, multiply that 3,000 times or 200 generations prior to your conception. The business of societal evolution is make sure everyone believes in something rather than equally understanding everything about only being alive now every ancestor alive currently occupying the moment biologically.

 

this process transcends throughout the food chain historically and currently.

 

Simple compounding inverted total sums of details never duplicated now as molcular migration sustains both inorganic universal expanding details and organic contracting results of ancestry so far in this specific universal position.

 

Ever discover why there cannot be nore than two sets of perpetual balancing in the same moment in the same space as spaced apart here eternally never the same as before functioning the same way forever using one substance?

"Mitt Romney said during his 2012 presidential campaign hed like a provision in the Constitution to say that the president has to spend at least three years working in business before he could become president of the United States.”

Trumps son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner parroted this theme in an interview this March: “We should have excellence in government … The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens.”

 

And yet, there is no evidence that businesspeople make good politicians. Historians certainly haven’t found any.

 

Nevertheless, a big part of Donald Trumps appeal as a presidential candidate was that he was going to bring his on time and under budget philosophy to Washington. He was going to run the country like a business.

So far, it hasnt worked. At nearly every turn, Trump has undermined his own agenda. And his administration is failing precisely because Trump is running the country like he ran his business."

"An evergreen of political idiocy is that a successful CEO couldrun America like a business.”

 

Hardly.

 

A CEO rules by fiat; a president cannot fire Congress. CEOs must placate a few hand-picked directors; presidents must comprehend a diverse country, disparate foreign cultures, and the nuances of military power. A CEO works in private; a president must rally fellow citizens with whose welfare he is charged.

 

A CEO acts through a handful of subordinates. The president relies on many people with varied expertise and, to succeed, must administer a sprawling government with countless missions and no bottom line."

Just for perspective. In the US, 23% of businesses file for bankruptcy protection. If Trump owns all or part of 515 business ventures then, on average, there should have been 118 bankruptcy filings. Surely it isn't your contention that a 98.8% success rate is worse than a 77% success rate.
