This book provides ultra simple but refreshing solutions to most of our problems from unemployment to foreign policy. First, I listed all our ills in the title article. You will cry and laugh at the same time. Fortunately most of our problems are not that hard to fix. However, we have to overcome the resistance from politicians, special interest groups and the voters ourselves.
All the fences, equipments and manpower will not keep illegal aliens away from our border but penalizing the employers will. If there are no jobs, they will not come. Nothing is simpler and more cost effective than this.
Before we talk about a national health care plan, we have to start by cutting down our high medical care expenses. When we tax small businesses to pay for the plan, we’re creating other problems like unemployment.
Taxing the rich excessively and printing money to the maximum are problems and not solutions. It could force the geese that lay the golden eggs to fly to another country. The better the incentives for them to invest here, the more jobs they will create.
We have to abandon some low-wage consumer products but enhance the ones that are competitive in the global market. A $20 wage can never compete with a $2 wage. You cannot survive with a $2 wage in US. With the alternative of closing out all foreign trades, we have to buy a toaster made in USA for $50! This would erode our living standard further.
We have to cut our generous welfare and entitlements and at the same time help the real needy. It would encourage the able poor to work and break their vicious cycle of poverty. If you lose your free health care for taking a job, you will not work of course. It does not take a genius to fix this problem, but where has the genius been for the last hundreds of years?
Education starts at home with concerned parents. We have too many single parents and teenage mothers. Throwing money to any problem does not fix the root problem. It happens time after time, and we have never learned.
The days of you’re my enemy or my puppet are long gone unless you still live in the days of past glory. Our government and its citizens need to live within our means. We cannot borrow and pass our obligations to the next generation forever. Democracy could lead to socialism, which in turn could lead to self-destruction as demonstrated in Greece.
I boldly predict that a secular bull market will be starting in 2017 when the two wars will be finally over. If it does not happen, most likely it will happen before 2020. I have strong arguments for both scenario forecasts. You heard it here first.
My Coconut Theory explains why US is declining and China is rising, naturally. The more interventions from our government, the higher chance it will be materialized. It also explains why the current recession has been prolonged with so many bailouts.
We blame China on currency manipulation, subsidies, spying, product dumping, pollution, rare earth elements, etc. While some have merits and China is no angel, we practice some of these tactics ourselves.
You will be surprised that China is a human rights lover if you compare China 30 years ago to China today. Today very few Chinese starve and most have shelters. These are basic human rights.
We should look at both sides of a story and not let our dumb nationalism cover our eyes. Using our yardstick to judge another country is not wise. Our politicians blame all our ills on China as they cannot fix our problems and the media wants to say what you want to hear.
This book contains 76 original and refreshing articles. My sincere hope is to promote better relationship of the two countries via mutual understanding and respect.
It also includes several original jokes and humor to keep you entertained. I also provide a blog for this book so it is never-ending once you get hooked.
