My two easy steps to fix the economy and make life better for everyone everywhere!

(This would take the cooperation of the all the nations governments, they don't have to form a new government or any kind of world organization, then just have to agree to these two terms)


Term/Step One: Freeze all prices (internationally), whatever a loaf a bread, gallon of gas, bottle of water, i-pod, or electricity cost you today, it will cost you tomorrow, and so on.

Term/Step Two: increase the value of all currency ten-fold, 1 penny is now worth 10 cents, a quarter is 2.50, a dollar bill now has the value of ten dollar bill, a ten dollars bill carry's the value of a 100 dollar, and a 100 dollar bill is now worth a 1,000. (this apply s to all monetary values, not just U.S.)

This will only last for 1 year, it will give a lot of power to all consumers and producers on the planet, causing a fast hike in the average persons living conditions, and boost all country's economy's.


after one year, terms, conditions, and monetary value could be analyzed, discussed, and changed if necessary.




I'm sure there's a million flaws in this theory, but i think it could work.... maybe haha.

This was a joke right? Freeze prices of everything? Good luck.

Inflate money to 10 times its value? Then use that inflated money to buy the items that have had their price frozen?

Definitely a joke, logic didn't even come anywhere near you while you write this thread.

Hmm...but with that system the whole banking/finance industry will come down even faster...but maybe that's intentional.
The old system has to break apart before a new structure can emerge.

good point! I'm aware that my theory is very flawed
, but i figured whats wrong with thinking outside the box?
right? probably more creative then any of those guys on wall street haha.


speaking of which i had a thought, i want to write a book (well maybe just the title to a book lol) its based of the book series, "if you give a mouse a cookie" and I'm going to call it, "if you give a bank a billion"

They're trying harder than ever to stop it from breaking apart. Maybe it's to keep themselves in money, maybe it's out of genuine concern for the total collapse of the world economy.

Either way it's starting to make me doubt how much truth there is to the evil NWO one world currency argument. Or maybe they really just know how to put on a show before they let their real intentions be known.

Trust me, they reallllllyy know how to put on a show. Nothing in this world happens by accident, it is all carefully contrived months, years and decades in advance so the cookie crumbles exactly how they say it crumbles.

This prop and "rebound" seen in the economy happening now and for the next little bit, is simply to lure people with remaining wealth to lose it all now so they can close the noose even tighter.

i guess you missed this part of the original post **(this apply's to all monetary values, not just U.S.) **

but there are a million other problems with this theory, so don't feel bad!

king i agree with you, but IF things were as they appear (which you and i agree they are not) then the OPs plan wouldn't be that bad.

Here's my solution:

The achillies heel of the free market is that it is completely and utterly dependent on confidence. When there is no confidence it falls apart. Therefore the government should invest in the sharemarket and effectively buyout the privately run companies that are performing poorly. These companies would now belong to the people and despite causing the budget to go further into deficit, the relative purchase price of these companies would be at a huge discount. Due to government ownership, employees could be maintained at the expense of huge company profits in the short-term, however consumer confidence would be increasing as concerns over job security subside. The increase in consumer confidence leads to an increase in spending, which inturn increases demand for the products these government run companies produce, which feeds through to once again create positive bottom lines. After a little while, the confidence has returned, the free market is working again and the government can pay off the debt it created when it bought these companies by selling them at a premium to the private owners again. Effectively the government would be selling confidence to the people, which is the key ingredient for the free market system.

OP:

good luck trying to convince the powers that be to change their fiscal policy for our benefit.

I think you are beating a dead horse, trying to say freeze prices and change money values, on these forums.

Even if you have the right idea, when it comes to money policy, posting your ideas ain't gonna cut it.

Time has come for more proactive personal mental and physical action to see change.. not merely sharing ideas online.

Don't get me wrong I am not arguing against sharing ideas, I am merely suggesting more 'active' methods.

The economy is not a simple system, and there are no quick fixes, sure things, and there are never manipulations without potentially disastrous concequences weeks, months, or years down the road.

The economy is a complex system, and as such, is inherently extremely difficult for people to understand. We can notice and try to manipulate patterns which emerge in the system - but a hallmark of complex systems is that identical interactions on separate occasions can have radically different results.

Personally, I don't think anyone.... ANYONE... truly understands the economy. Some may have better intuition and management skills, and some may engage in insider trading, or find a way to "work the system" - but none of whom can come up with a single, comprehensive, and definitive plan which WILL fix the situation we're in.

There are no simple solutions.

However, I think a good starting point for turning things around may be to increase government spending on start-up companies and small buisnesses - especially those dealing with Genomics, Tissue Engineering, and Robotics... because those three fields will be converging very shortly, and as they mature they will form a new industry that will revolutionize medicine, lifestyles, computers, etc. It's going to flip our world upside down and make the Tech Bubble of the late 90's look like a small hiccup in the cycle of recessions.

I won't stand behind these numbers too firmly, as I haven't looked into them, but according to Juan Enriquez at his TEDtalk on advancing technology forcing a economic reboot - venture backed start-up companies supposedly account for only about .02% of the nations GDP investment, but account on average for about 17.8% output.


Video Attached - just in case anyone cares to watch.

Well, stupid as it may sound to the indoctrinated economic mind why shouldn't it work? It's not a socialism thing per se it just freezes the worth of money to something stable. It's not a bad thing for almost anybody in the world. Deflation, inflation and price-agreements between businesses are not helping anybody except the greedy on the recieving end of the benefitial side of that game.

Why shouldn't it work in the long run? Bottom line is that the system in place is rotting away and needs replacing. Somehing less volatile should be serving the human race as a trading method. Economy should be serving not ruling humanity.

hey someone else open to new idea's!! people don't have to use my exact theory, it could be improved upon, i didn't think it was a bad idea, and one part i left out was you would freeze the printing of money entill that yearly meeting where it could be decided if more, and how much more needs to be printed.

I'm not aware of a Venus project, care to share?

I've heard of it.

www.thevenusproject.com...

I don't agree with everything they are trying to present. It is a well done website, but some of their ideas are flawed and show a lack of understanding how some economic systems work.

isn't it ironic that your just presenting another idea with out a solution. I don't think saying do something, counts as an informative answer to the problem.

If we don't start by sharing idea's then how do we get solutions?

Whats your answer to everything?

There are about 40 million people over age 50 in the work force. Pay each of them $1 million severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1. They must retire. Forty million job openings: unemployment fixed.
2. They must buy a new American car. Forty million cars ordered: auto industry fixed.
3. They must either buy a house or pay off their mortgage: housing crisis fixed.

It can’t get any easier than that! If more money is needed, then have all members of Congress and their constituents pay their taxes.
