The $Trillion Dream

"It is not new. In fact it has been decades in the making. But that is true of all ideas - standing on the shoulder of giants (sometimes over a lifetime or more)."

"… commandeered the threshold technology. Now there is a struggle over how it will be applied, as foreseen and documented a quarter century ago and speculated upon more than a half century earlier."

The economic thought experiment. We have $7 trillion to divide equally with the worlds population. $1000/apiece in exchange for a gift from each person to somebody else (does NOT have to be financial). Mahadana, so-to-speak. You will want to stay tuned for discussions on the transactions, method of distribution, business model etc.

Certainly reasonable to ask what event kicked off the cascade of related sub-plots. Some great stories begin just that way. A compelling question planted in the mind by the first page, opening scene, first stanza and so on.

The discovery that the invention 'buried' for use by those charged with the well being of a subset of world society. Certain private and secret parties become aware (perhaps are even complicit in) the removal of the invention for the socially disruptive implications it had/has.

"Best $7 trillion we have ever invested. Like TARP only better because it is easier to understand in spite of misleading 'news' stories about it.

A dear friend who knows how to believe teaches me a bit about the robust history of a deep system of thought.  I have known of his capacity to bring relevant teaching to the fountain not created by man for a little time now. When he asked, I answered 'this was right up there.'  In retrospect, I should have said, 'best yet.' The good thing about productive conversations - they keep going. Thank you, Mr. President, for asking us to engage each other.
