Empowering Americans - Foundry For A Public Private Trust

"Empowering Americans"

"Supplanting Corruption Arising From Nepotism Between Corporations And Government"

** Deceived By Political Opportunism **

When government influences a corporation with grants, or tax breaks, or subsidies, it is practising a system of socialism through special endowments, where the principle shareholders and owners of corporations receive primary and extremely disproportionate benefits.

Whence politicians receive remittance for their special endowments and the public interests are thereby compromised through the clout of crony capitalism.

Politicians assert that the special endowments are justified as a service to the public, as they direct attention to the benefit of tax revenue and to the delivery of jobs.

Few notice or feel compelled to mention that the practice is an example of an extremely unfair and prejudicial social system.

** Economic War Time Effort **

Consider a situation where the government establishes private corporations that manufacture, produce, deploy, and garnish revenue from means of alternative energy, such as wind turbines, or offshore tide generators, or solar panels, hydrogen fuel, or nuclear reactors.

Consider a process of technocracy and indicative planning that realizes neo-mercantile goals which cannot be fostered by the demand for profit margins of disparate private sector corporations or their share holders.

Could such efforts be considered reasonable in the contexts of economic urgency or social providence without squeezing out private free enterprise?

** Establishing A Public Private Trust Distribution **

The Public Private Trust plan proposes that infusions of tax moneys to corporations is to occur through an exchange for shares of stock.

Those shares of stock acquired are to be tied to the title of the corporation and, at the time of the exchange, a one time fractional distribution of shares to each tax payer is to occur.

For example, suppose that 300 million dollars of tax payer moneys is invested into a corporation A by the government, assuming 300 million US citizens, each would receive a fractional share of stock, via the Public Private Trust, worth a dollar that is proportionally tied to the stock value under title for the corporation A.

After a period of time, the shares of stock could be traded, sold, or transferred to heirs, that is unlike the complete loss of the six percent social security moneys by those who do not use them.

The initial objective is to create a system where corporations are disinclined to accept the infusions of cash, thus forcing a free market system; however, if that is not their choice, then the taxpayers would receive a greater long term interest in their tax funds.

Such a system would balance the unfair social system of egalitarianism against special or selective endowments.

** Open Source Support Required **

The most difficult problem in the scenario proposed is how to distribute and account for the holdings and trading of shares for any particular private corporation whose distribution is in minuscule units to vast numbers of individuals.

Common ownership is distinct form collective ownership.

** Extrapolating A Special Endowment Scenario **

Consider a situation where the government actually creates a whole private corporation, where the shareholders are the collective of citizens, through the Public Private Trust method of distribution.

After the corporation is formed, the government does not control or manage the corporation and that avoids the most heinous social system, which is where a government would own corporations and their means of production - formal communism, and corporations would have limited ability to own the government, as each condition establishes a single unchallenged entity without a counterbalance to its tyranny.

** Possible Consequences **

If the challenge of green house gasses is to be taken seriously, along with a disregard for the carrying capacity of human apes on the planet, along with a realization that fossil fuels are becoming less available, along with a realization that if one is not productive one is then a burden, what is the feasibility and reasonableness of such a calculated effort?

** Productivity Versus Conserving Resources **

Now, the health care program does not produce anything, rather it is meant to be an attempt at preserving financial resources.

It is pathetic that the only economic plans being offered by government are ignorant pandering to egalitarian foolishness.
"Defining Criteria For A Public Private Trust"

"A Legitimate Stimulus Plan"

** Productivity Versus Conserving Resources **

Now, the health care program does not produce anything, rather it is meant to be an attempt at preserving financial resources.

It is pathetic that the only economic plans being offered by government are ignorant pandering to egalitarian foolishness.

Such has been the trivial pursuits of domestic productivity, such as caulking windows or funding inner city programs to hand up ceiling fans at prices greater than local hardware stores, which is the classic, aimless direction, of social welfare planning by government.

** Investing In Energy And Domestic Production **

Should the US government subsidize domestic alternative energy industries such as solar, wind turbine, and electric vehicles, hydrogen vehicles, based upon projected futures in market growth?

The investment would include an analysis of advantages for employment through domestic manufacturing, for growth towards innovation, for energy independence, for environmental benefits, for employment and productivity of citizens, to bolster the US global competitiveness, and utilize the spending multiplier.

Further, and most importantly, the US government should not own the corporations!!

Again, to facilitate an independence of the corporation from the US government, all federal subsidies should be transferred into publicly traded stock, which is to be distributed equally to every US citizen, as a one time gift through the Public Private Trust.

Profits beyond operating costs and investment decisions would be allocated as dividends, and the shares of stock could be sold, traded, or granted to heirs.

** Throwing It Away **

Evergreen Solar has shut down and is leaving Massachusetts for ventures in China after receiving large incentives through state funding - Officials Discussing Evergreen Solar Closure - Boston News Story - WCVB Boston

"Taking Back Mine"

The government is subsidizing a 1.5 billion dollar project to install 240 electric generators as an electricity wind farm in Texas.

The electricity generated by the wind mills is revenue!

When the wind farm is installed it will amount to 300 temporary jobs and 30 permanent jobs in the US and the profits will go to selective corporations.

And yet, all of the generators are being built in China!

The chinese government made sure that the chinese manufacturer was constructed with 80% materials from china.

How many jobs does it take to build 240 electric wind generators?

How many jobs does it take to build a wind generator corporation?

How many jobs are created when a wind generator plant has long term growth?

The energy commissioner of the US department of energy has said that the US is on the verge of completely being unable to compete with the chinese in the alternative energy market.

Alternative energy industries, such as wind, solar, nuclear, electric vehicles is poised for growth and rewards, for all the correct reasons.

The public wants stimulus but cannot see that their manufacturing jobs have been off shored, SOLD, stolen!!

** Modelling Gains **

It is understood that the federal government is not geared towards capitalistic conquests; it is not thinking intelligently as a corporation which anticipates futures and predicts growth; but it can be negotiated, challenged.

Moreover, the federal government is giving away money to foreign corporations, selling American's interests with their own money and offering Americans nothing but slavery to debt in return.

Not all pursuits will lead to profits; yet, the futures for domestic production of alternative energies represents an efficiency which should be considered as an option!

The current Keynesian investments are subject to the law of diminishing returns as social welfare, education, and highways do not bring profits as does manufacturing.

Are we not educated enough to at least make better investments with the money that is being used?

Another key element is that select individuals (corporations) will not be granted disproportional benefit and power to dictate policy through control of government!!

Out of government hands, in the control of private boards of directors, who act as proprietors for common interest, the investment of taxpayer moneys will not end up as a general fund to be mortgaged and pilfered as has social security.

"Allowing A Majority Of Special Interests"

Some socialists advocate complete nationalisation of the means of production, distribution, and exchange; others advocate state control of capital within the framework of a market economy.

The former is communism, and the latter does not foster individualism and productivity, as the free market suffers from crowding out and stagnation of alternatives.

Neomercantile practices of government may be beneficial, when the private sector is unable to commandeer sufficient resources for an intelligent pursuit of national productivity.

However, reject any that seek to consolidate the authority of the state and the commerce of the private sector.

** Cautionary Notes **

Complete nationalism of the means of production, distribution, and exchange is contrary to individualism and private interests.

The public private trust should not acquire a market share greater than a lesser portion of a golden mean.

Clearly, it would not be in the interests of individualism if the public private trust were to control a majority of opportunities for competitive greatness.

** Some Things Worth Consideration **

Pharmaceuticals for standard health issues such as diabetes, blood pressure, etc. are out of patent; and, if the government were to endow the public private trust with a corporation which manufactured the staple of medicinal drugs; whereby, profits were realized and costs regulated by the private interests, then this might become a major reduction of burden upon the long term vested interests of the private public at large.

Further, the banking industry has continued to act as criminals; and, circumventing their strangle hold on exorbitant profits from usury and abuse means that it is in the interests of the public private trust to establish its own ethical lending institutions.

The infusion of cash which came from the bailout should have occurred through an exchange for bank institution stock which was transferred to the public private trust.

One can bet that if banks did not want to surrender their interests they would have kept themselves in check.

And the federal government should not own 60% of GM; that is flat out communism.

Now, the public private trust should have an option to stop the government from directing capital where it does not choose to allow it.

And, the public private trust should have negotiating involvement in the price per share.

Clearly corporations have the option to reject infusions of cash in exchange for stock purchase.

Thus, the plan for the public private trust is to acquire a portion of the long term remittance acquired through the tax subsidy (as does the corporation) as any other private holder of portioned shares in the company.
