That means investing in education and R & D that will advance those sustainable economies.
The government doesn't sustain the economy. It needs to set the climate for businesses to flourish and provide jobs. Not regulate everything out of business. I like the moniker Cate Sanders lol.
Cate!!! Change your last name to Sanders lol.
We got to see the advancement of capital that JFK's commitment, and our Congress' investment in NASA brought about. The government can and should seed an environment that creates competition of capital investment within private industry. So yes, the government does indeed sustain our capitalist economy. And yes sustaining it requires regulating it as well.
It's when investment and regulations within the government that have bred the Crony Capitalism that we have today, must change direction to preserve capitalism. Enacting legislation and stimulating capital investment to break up the Crony Capitalist strongholds that have bought our legislators, whom have enacted laws that thwart competition and stymie prudent capital investment to protect their financial backers. Getting money out of politics, reforming Wall Street and investing in education that will develop the R & D to feed private industry is what will make our country great again. Not the hollow words of one of the billionaire class, that has grown their wealth benefitting from laws that protect and grow Crony Capitalism.
