A HAPPY ENDURING MALE FEMALE FAMILY LIFE IS QUICKLY BECOMING SCARCE IN THE UNITED STATES!!!

Portrait of a extended happy family standing in the park.

Responsible financial living, a commonly held morality, and good family role models are the most important indicators of a potentially happy lasting two parent marriage.

Financially about half of Americans get some form of welfare money assistance, many college graduates are badly prepared with inadequate job skills and are burdened with great money debt when they graduate, a large percentage of families are living paycheck to paycheck or are in great personal money debt, and often rich offspring used to an easy dependent life know how to spend money but are not financially smart enough to function on a budget and make more than they spend.

Credit cards, inflation and paltry interest on savings accounts discourages savings for a rainy day, and advertising encourages profligate spending making many teeter on the border of bankruptcy during most of their adult lives. They don’t know how to invest in a secure investment which is not a very risky one. In effect, most Americans are ignorant of sound money management principles and don’t know what to do with their money except spend it. Frugal money management which makes a nation prosperous and secure is discouraged in almost every part of society and is not even taught in most schools.

A commonly held morality is very important. Not lying, not stealing, and no adultery are vital to moral family living.  Not only is lying and stealing bad because it breaks the bonding trust between humans but adultery and promiscuity often also leads to divorce and ending of a close mother father bonding relationship. If you can’t trust your spouse in a society which encourages much temptation and promiscuity then no lasting enduring and committed relationship is often possible in your private family sex life.

Good wholesome family male female role models are also necessary because most offspring learn by imitation or observance of how their parents interact. Single mother or single father families on welfare and elsewhere are bad male female family role models and makes it much less probable for offspring to have happy wholesome two parent families themselves. Divorced family life is also a killer of happy family relationships for offspring who don’t understand that a happy marriage can also be for a lifetime between male and female if you put in the right kind of effort.

Offspring from single parent homes and divorced homes are also bad child role models in school and in the neighborhood so not only parent role models are often bad but offspring role models are also frequently bad examples of what happy moral offspring should be. Add to this the almost total absence of wholesome role model families with offspring among celebrities, in soap operas, movies, TV, and videos and there is a dearth of good wholesome media family role models to imitate. Realistically, family life is just not one continuous form of entertainment which society pushes on us but a serious financially, morally responsible lifestyle which fewer and fewer experience first hand and end up imitating later in life.

Is it any wonder that the birth rate is the lowest it has ever been. Family life is an expensive lifestyle which requires much sacrifice of time, effort, and money per offspring which fewer and fewer Americans are willing to commit to. They not only don’t have enough money but often they don’t even have basic relationship and parenting skills necessary to be financially and morally responsible adults and raise financially and morally responsible offspring into adulthood. So a happy long lasting family life is fast becoming relatively scarce in the United States.

Add to this pessimistic family situation an abundance of very bad habits such as addictions to alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, promiscuity, profanity, compulsive shopping, etc. and you have a recipe for family and personal chronic dysfunctions. America is a sick society not only health wise with about 50% taking prescription drugs within a 30 day period but also sick financially, morally, politically, and behaviorally. I see no great immediate cure for all the human relationship problems which confront America. America has gotten much worse than just being a fat lazy ignorant society and desperately needs immigrant families willing to work hard and smart and raise responsible moral offspring.

Yes, I am a long duration optimist and see smart moral robot parents and software as human kind’s salvation. But that is not happening any time soon and society will have to descend into further chaos before smart robots or a moral human political tyranny takes over and returns society to some semblance of order and healthy wholesome two parent family living.

You can get cynical and claim that bad family life is the antidote to human overpopulation of the earth. Even though there is some truth to this fact, stable family relationships create social stability which is desirable in any prospering financially and morally sound nation.

ABOUT A 5% SPENDING CUT ACROSS THE BOARD IN EVERY GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENT IS A ROAD TO EVENTUALLY STOP OVERSPENDING!!!

A fixed percentage cut for all government departments across the board is the best way to cut government inefficiency and reduce overspending in the budget. My recommendation is to start with about a 5% cut across the board and eventually increase it by another 10%. Politically Congress will probably never allow this to happen but Trump has the right idea on this issue.

THE TRUTH ABOUT STATISTICS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH!!!

94264

Statistics is a statement about the possible correlation between two facts and not a statement of causation or that one fact absolutely causes another. The relationship between two facts may vary in degree based on changing circumstances and the correlation may also be a function of time so that one fact may only significantly affect another many years after its impact.

The correlation between debt and economic growth intuitively and statistically seems to be valid. The more a nation is burdened by debt the less real growth it is capable of.

However, there are many other variables which affect growth such as an increase in the efficiency of infrastructure which promotes growth in the long duration.

Investment in useful technological education skills can also promote eventual greater productivity and economic growth in the long duration.

Decrease in taxes frees up more money to be invested in the economy more efficiently in the long duration because automatic decreases can increase the national debt which does not stimulate growth.

Laws which handicap the growth of small businesses which increase the net income of workers and expand GDP reverse economic growth. These same laws which promote the growth of big business reduces employment of workers thus decreasing net income and resulting in a lower GDP.

A growth in the size of government also decreases a growth in the GDP because government workers are not as productive as private business workers and make the economic growth pie smaller since it is a parasite on the economy.

Business cycles also affect economic growth and during times of recession or depression growth is either slowed down considerably or stopped or it is even reversed in a depression.

An increase in the rate of natural resource usage also increases GDP growth since more goods are produced and sold.

Cheaper energy also stimulates economic growth because more goods are produced more cheaply increasing the net amount of goods in circulation.

Free trade can decrease economic growth because of worldwide competition which causes many workers to go on unemployment or welfare and add to the burden of national debt.

Summarizing the 10 most important intuitive causes of national economic growth they are- laws which promote small businesses, less debt, decrease in government size, decrease in taxes, increase in the use of natural resources, cheaper energy, more efficient infrastructure, more useful technological education, business cycle high, and Fed and bank money investment in the economy from a lending high in the business cycle which unfortunately mostly causes inflation if it is not an investment in small businesses.

No amount of statistical data will verify the correlation of all these 10 variables to economic growth because these variables change and depend on the given point in time that you are talking about which is impossible to correlate accurately or statistically. Statistics just give you rather vague ballpark approximations and they are just a little better than smart intuitive thinking in economics which is still largely intuitive art and not a science which it will never be because there are too many impacting variables.

***Realistically it is debatable whether economic growth is desirable in a finite planet with finite natural resources, especially wilderness, and an ever increasing human population which is threatening the very survival of this precious endangered planet. The real emphasis should be on no inflation very efficient sustainable living and not trying to crazily try and grow indefinitely.

The true goal of all nations should be to function more efficiently with more sustainable living, no inflation or a constant value in money, balancing the budget, and conserving and even expanding wilderness throughout the world.
