THE SOLUTION TO OUR WIDENING POVERTY GAP

Posted on October 30, 2017 at 7:00am 3 Comments

The greatest social problem that we are experiencing today is the growing difference between the poor and the rich and we have learned to accept it. But it is at terrible cost in separation and the associated feelings of anger, depression and helplessness, between the people who have jobs that provide stable incomes with comfortable homes and those who don't and can't. The practical solution here is driving me nuts!

 Many governments have made progress in easing this injustice--some…

What I would like to see happen during this century to make the world a better place

INTRODUCTION

Although land is generally treated as if it were capital, it was not created by Man. In particular, our land is a gift of nature (if not of a Higher Authority) and we have it on trust. Before very many people lived on this land it was almost worthless. Its…

HILLEL AND THE TAXMAN

Hillel the Elder’s fame rests on his use of logic for deriving Talmudic law and this talent also relates to his three questions about Jewish moral behavior (see: ”Avot” or “Ethics of the Fathers”, Chapter 1 verse 14). These questions are presented below. They are applicable to many attitudes and responses that individuals take and also pertain to the community at large. Amongst the public and social money matters, this includes a nations’ methods for…

I am a retired engineer (M.Sc. in aeronautics with several technical papers published internationally), who has more recently been working on a book about macroeconomics theory. I find that the current knowledge and teaching about this subject have been corrupted. Following my research, I wish to open and enlarge the subject of macroeconomics as an more exact science, which is comprehensive to a larger and simplified degree.

As a life-long member of the Georgists, I am concerned with the degree of poverty that exists, even within wealthy nations, and I see the way to eliminate this according to Henry George's ethical teachings. (Also see http://www.progress.org and its various links.)

In 1919, a young Army officer named Dwight Eisenhower, along with a "Mad Max"-style military convoy, set out on a cross-country road trip to examine the nascent state of America's roads. Penn State Altoona's Professor Brian C. Black explains how this trip influenced Eisenhower's decisions decades later, both as general and president, and laid the groundwork for the rise of petroleum-based engines and the interstate highway system.

AI in the Arctic: Future Opportunities & Ethical Concerns, with Fritz Allhoff

The Ethical Algorithm, with Michael Kearns

Over the course of a generation, algorithms have gone from mathematical abstractions to powerful mediators of daily life. They have made our lives more efficient, yet are increasingly encroaching on our basic rights. UPenn's Professor Michael Kearns shares some ideas on how to better embed human principles into machine code without halting the advance of data-driven scientific exploration.
