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:

Gene Editing Governance & Dr. He Jiankui, with Jeffrey Kahn

Jeffrey Kahn, director of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute for Bioethics, discusses the many governance issues connected to gene editing. Plus, he gives a first-hand account of an historic conference in Hong Kong last year in which Dr. He Jiankui shared his research on the birth of the world's first germline genetically engineered babies. What's the future of the governance of this emerging technology?

Trump is the Symptom, Not the Problem

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.

Gene Editing: Overview, Ethics, & the Near Future, with Robert Klitzman

In the first in a series of podcasts on gene editing, Columbia's Dr. Robert Klitzman provides an overview of the technology, ethical and governance issues, and where it could all go in the near future. Plus he explains why the birth of genetically engineered twins in China last year was a "seismic" event. How could gene editing lead to more inequality? What could be some of unintended consequences?
