I've written before about the idea of applying nature's rules to macro-economics, discussing a need for a smarter approach to globalization:  Membrane Economic Globalization.

Pat Buchanan  wrote,    

"The U.S. trade deficit is the greatest foreign aid and wealth transfer in program in history, and our workers are paying for it by the loss to their families of the American Dream."

I propose that allowing billionaires to exist, with their propensity to invest overseas, to invest in gold and commodities and real estate, actually is an equally devastating transfer of national resources away from applications that create jobs. Buchanan suggested in his 2004 article that a billion in exports created 20,000 jobs. I propose that a billion in a billionaire's portfolio costs the nation 20,000 jobs, though it may create jobs overseas. 

This idea of eliminating billionaires would start in the US, or perhaps, once the meme is in the air, it would start in more liberal democracies, like those in Europe. But one way to enforce it on other billionaires, outside the US would be to not allow them to enter the US. Consider them dangerous people, threats to our democracy, our economy. They really already are.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
