Planned Public Investment vs Short Term Private Profit

The great failure of the Private Business Sector is their reluctance to make long term investments. Hedge Fund Managers and Defense Corporation CEOs like being seen as ‘risk takers’, but that and ‘entrepreneur’ are just engineered image labels, that romanticize short term rigged bets they make to turn a quick, easy profit, with government guarantees, at the long term expense of the economy and tax payers.

We need a national commitment; a $400B annual investment in green energy technology & deployment. We can’t wait any longer for the invisible hand of the free market, it’s too busy with our wallets.

We need to take the plunge together. Invest in the future. Jobs will explode, trade balance will go positive, air and water quality will rapidly improve. The country will be so busy doing something they are proud of, happiness will creep into daily life and there will be little time for for the miserable task of picking the political fly shit out from the pile of media pepper.
