Unfortunately for the progress of the human race we seem to know very little about how to govern ourselves and the result is a lot of guesswork without apply much science or logic. But there is a means for better understanding of how our system of society or macroeconomics actually functions, which I have developed and which I can supply.

The past history of macroeconomic thought contained several impotant steps toward this development of this science, but it fell short in recent times. This was due to the control of the subject excerised by the many big corporations whose money was used to keep the universities and other teaching establishments in line with their monopolistic needs and behavour. Thus the vast number of people whose found this subject confusing and were uninclined to be interested were led by a smaller group of academics who had been (unknowingly) deceived by an even smaller number of industrialists and bankers and politicians!

My big news is that although, according to Mark Twain you can fool all the people some of the time, there is now the means available for entering into this subject of self-government as an exact (well almost) science and to see and understand what it is and how it works. This is the direct result of the research that I have been doing over many years, whilst being employed in engineering for the greater part of my professional life.

Naturally I have chosen an engineering approach to this problem. A little thinking about it soon leads to the need for modeling the macro-economy. For this purpose I use a number of different expressions, one of which I wish to share here, in order to introduce the way in which this subject becomes logical and almost exact. Please examine the following graphic carefully since it was constructed after a lot of thought was given:

Killer Robots, Ethics, & Governance, with Peter Asaro

Peter Asaro, co-founder of the International Committee for Robot Arms Control, has a simple solution for stopping the future proliferation of killer robots, or lethal autonomous weapons: "Ban them." What are the ethical and logistical risks of this technology? How would it change the nature of warfare? And with the U.S. and other nations currently developing killer robots, what is the state of governance?

As Biden Stalls, Is the "Restorationist" Narrative Losing Ground?

U.S. Global Engagement Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev notes that former Vice President Joe Biden is, in foreign policy terms, most associated with a "restorationist" approach. How does this differentiate from other candidates? What approach will resonate most with voters?

Democratic Candidates & Foreign Policy after Iowa, with Nikolas Gvosdev

With the (incomplete) results of the Iowa Caucus putting the spotlight on Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders, what do we know about their foreign policy platforms? How do they differentiate themselves from Joe Biden? Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev shares his thoughts and touches on voters' possible perception of Sanders as a "socialist" and how climate change could become an issue in this election.
