LeadU presents Employment to Involvement



Employment to Involvement

Here is what I mean about solving the wrong problems:

To create lasting growth in our economy, we need steady domestic demand. For that to happen, we need clarity when it comes to personal finances (taxes, health, energy, etc.). We need to reign in the wild debt-fueled spending of our government. We need the Federal Reserve to get out of the rate-setting business and the money-printing game.

Until those things happen, tepid demand will keep us in a pattern of tepid employment… and changes in statistics like U.S. jobless claims will simply be noise.

THIS assumes ceteris paribus that "lasting growth" is the endgame.

IT IS @BS, it is NOT @F-L-O-W and beyond, IMHO.

I realize this introduces a can of worms few are willing to consider eating… BUT…

This entire conception of infinity, eternality, and growth are all centered in the same fallacy which says that the only way to win is not to play…

Now, one can question the gambit of winning for sure… AND

The question is, if not growth (which happens organically), what is the endgame…

And recently, I have wondered if switching from "full employment" to "full involvement" is more than a semantical shift to replace the endgame that is struggling against the tension of infinity and eternality… or growth as you might conclude — where reality is depicted by a perspective from a level, not the truth which is constantly shifting….


…seems more practical to me, in light of the shift of assumptions in reality @F-L-O-W.

Involvement might mean SOME work, and SOME don’t.


You mean some people get a "FREE RIDE" on the backs of others?


Well, some will define it that way, and as we push up against conventionality, most people will refuse to embrace the changes, and the destructive forces of change will act on them.

For those wishing perhaps to have a different set of problems, INVOLVEMENT rather than EMPLOYMENT might provide a different ground for the figure of policy.

Helpful Hint: Moving from full employment to full involvement will require us to rethink, and redesign how we view the human condition and the goals for humanity.

Action Step: Consider if you will, suspending your ideas that everyone should work… in the formal sense, and if they didn’t how would society involve them.
