Touted as ‘Democracy’s Version of Capitalism’, New Economic platform calls upon Social Science to confirm its validity. Once approved, however, would Americans vote to implement it?
United States, January 19th, 2022 – The Third Option announced Wednesday that it has fashioned a platform capable of sustaining an “infinitely recyclable economy,” and has called upon the social science community to confirm its “feasibility, constitutionality, efficiency and effectiveness”, prior to review by the American people. According to Bob Simmons at The Third Option, this new hybrid model “is the least invasive solution possible, eliminates all the systemic flaws in the current system, and costs one-tenth what government currently spends annually.”
“Social Science, Capitalism, and Democracy are all at a crossroads. Capitalism believes it doesn’t need the other two, and if successful in eliminating them, will ironically destroy itself in the process. Only with Democracy as the foundation can all three remain valuable and necessary.” Social science budgets are constantly under threat of being cut, and government programs of being ‘privatized’, but in this new model, analyzing socioeconomic and political structures would become essential in a process designed to improve our institutions.
The central feature of this model –America’s original First Bank of the United States—has been resurrected to “ensure the Democracy originally promised, while better managing the version of Capitalism that developed in its absence”. It does not seek to eliminate Capitalism, according to Simmons, only “Capitalism’s Version of Democracy”. “Democracy is not for sale; neither is Capitalism qualified to manage it…With Democracy’s Version of Capitalism, both would finally do the jobs for which they are qualified.”
Before this model could be implemented, Americans would need to vote for it. The Third Option believes this could happen as early as the 2024 election cycle.
