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:

The Crack-Up: The 1919 Elaine Massacre & the Struggle to Remember, with Nan Woodruff

The massacre in rural Elaine, Arkansas was one of the most violent episodes of 1919's Red Summer of racist confrontations, but it also remains one of the least-known. In this talk with historian Ted Widmer, Penn State's Professor Nan Woodruff explains the causes and how it fits in to the post-World War I context. Why are people still reluctant to speak about this massacre? How should we remember this dark chapter in American history?

The Individual & the Collective, Politics, & the UN, with Jean-Marie Guéhenno

Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Jean-Marie Guéhenno, former head of United Nations peacekeeping operations, discusses the tensions between the individual and the collective in a world filled with political tension, pervasive surveillance, and fear of risk. What is the role of the UN in this environment? How can we avoid the violent upheavals that marked other transitional phases in humanity?

A Russian Take on the Kurds and U.S. Foreign Policy

A Russian defense news site declared the United States an "unreliable ally" after the the withdrawal of American troops from Northern Syria. Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev connects this characterization to the need for leaders to connect a specific policy action to a larger, understandable narrative for the American public.
