Economics? Who Cares? Mark Pash is a Certified Financial Planner and a “Macroeconomic Philosopher” who retired and then created a non-profit to make a better world for his grandchildren and the rest of humanity through the correct macroeconomics philosophy
In Mark’s view, the current recession was not caused by politics or fiscal policy, and its solution requires reducing the affects of the flaws of capitalism, including: 1) inadequate recirculation 2) failure to create quality customers 3) lack of long-term planning 4) under-diversified monetary system. Mark believes that our economic situation can only get worse without complete monetary reform.
Everyone who is interested in a quality global economy and community. Political activists, Businesses of all kinds, Financial institutions, Civic groups, Entrepreneurs.
Mark prefers at least one-hour talks, which can include question-and-answer period. 2-4 hour workshops and discussion can also be scheduled.
In a free enterprise environment, there is a continual, natural flow of capital to the powerful; the highly educated and already wealthy by various means, both legal and illegal or by shear luck. This natural concentration of wealth continually reduces both the number of businesses and ample individual consumers, eventually hurting commerce and society.
In this talk, Mark first points out the four major flaws of capitalism: 1) Inadequate Recirculation of Money; 2) Failure to Create Quality Customers; 3) Lack of Long-Term Planning; 4) Under-diversified Monetary System. For each of these shortcomings, Mark presents pathways to future financial success for all – a win-win economy!
Progressive Economics with Monetary Reform
All money is created through debt, but where is it written that this is the only way that we can create money? Nowhere.
In this talk, Mark reviews monetary history, demonstrating that every country has gone through significant monetary crisis. He points out that in our nation’s last 175 years, the immature and under-diversified monetary system and lack of fiscal spending (recirculation) has created the panics, recession and depressions of 1837, 1857, 1873, 1884, 1893, 1907, 1929, 2008 and our various inflationary periods.
This is because the only way we get needed money into circulation is through the issuance of debt-loans (private & public). This archaic and very narrow banking structure does not fit the needs of a 21st Century computerized, non-scarcity economy.
Mark presents a most evolutionary solution based on a complete monetary reform and a diversification of new money delivery systems.
Financial Inequality and Solutions
There are many reasons why inequality exists in an economy. For starters, we are NOT created equal! We have many different talents, abilities and appearances — with unique emotional and physical make-ups.
Secondly, the institution of capitalism-competitive markets has a natural flow of money to the wealthier. (Let’s face it, it’s easier to make money if you already have some.)
In this enlightening talk, Mark offers perceptive solutions at both the government-macroeconomic level and the private-individual level.
