I agree that no one has been found who knows how to fix the economic situation. It seems as though we are on the downside of a bell-shaped curve. In order to come in for a soft landing may not be possible, because of the extreme imballances in the economics such as over accumulation and living beyond our means. A Progressive Utilization Theory has been proposed by some intellectuals, but I don’t think the world is ready to hear it. A start would be to think what is for the best or for the good and well-being of all. Using that sentiment we can move forward.
