What alternatives are there to the current economic system? Should global capitalism fail, what would be the best model to replace it?
Ms Jah Sun Pls find my comments relative to your points. #2 " It will be difficult to enforce, and will never voluntarily replace the current fiscal quarter bottom line. They will simply move their money over to companies that don't bother with social conscience or other bleeding heart concerns." --- It should be a governmental requirement enforced by law, applicable to all companies and not voluntarily. #3 " It could simply cause an exodus of talent to private companies who will easily be able to out-pay the hamstrung public endeavors. The brain drain could be extreme and even more detrimental than it already is" --- The new combine progressive Tax scheme will be applicable to all citizens. The net income above a define point will be marginal. Imagine an exponential income line. # 4 "Social companies already exist... we are called non-profits." -- The proposed social companies are not non-profit. They are profit companies and their revenues will be based on the budged savings to the government and public sector. However their products will not be in creating new products or services. They will create money measurable social products.

Ms Jah Sun Following my comments to some of your points related to VAT-Tax You said: 1:'If you are not talking about shrinking government and expect to keep revenues the same, the new system must be able to raise the same amount of money as the old" 2:" consumption taxes (no matter how high or weighted) always favor the rich. This is because rich people only spend a tiny portion of their wealth in any given year" -- I agree that government activity should be balanced. The money raised should support government activities. The proposal is independent of government's efficiency. The proposed change of Tax is a combination of both the total direct income from all types of incomes and not only salaries (including deposit interests, share gains, house rentals and so on) and the VAT indirect taxation. I believe that this proposal will contribute to decrease the income inequality. The rich will pay more, the middle class less. People consuming more resources (Example energy) will pay more for their usage. Overall taxation should: From one hands the keep inequality to a point acceptable by the middle class. From second hand it should encourage and reward people for initiatives, good performances, risk taking

Part3. Update the progressive Tax system. Differentiated and increase VAT taxation and updated scheme of direct taxation. -- 1: Introduce a progressive VAT tax system. Divide products and services in 5 groups. -- Examples: 1:1Group 1 will pay 0% VAT. Basic living products, babies and school utilities, materials and services, public transportation, bicycles. 1.2-Group 2 will pay 2-6% VAT. A group of defined products and services and Electricity, Gas, Water per cap allocation. apartments up 3 living rooms, low fuel consumption cars. 1.3-Group 3 will pay 7-12%VAT A group of defined products and Electricity, Gas, Water over per cap allocation, apartments up 5 living rooms, medium fuel consumption cars/ 1.4-Group 4 will pay 17-22% Luxury products and services ,Energy consuming cars-air conditioning systems, Luxury houses and cars, 5 star hotels, Yachts. ** 1.5: Addition 5% VAT if within 3 years the car, apartment owner and other commodities defined in this category will either buy or change his commodity to another product within the same or higher VAT group. --- 2: Update the scheme of direct taxation. Young people are played less however they have initial high expenses to build a family. Combine the progressive tax system with an age depending tax system. --- 2.1; A married couple will be entitled to 20 to 50% salary tax reduction for 5 years after marriage, pending income. 2.2: A tax reduction of 5 to 10% per child for 13 years pending income. 2.3: Change the progressive income tax system. For incomes up 7 times the average income use the current system. Increase the incoming tax by 5 to 20% per income increase step. Example: average income*7=x tax Income above average income of 7 to 8= x+5% tax. Income above average income of 8 to 9 = X+10% tax.

Part2 2:**** Create a new company's values evaluations standard and report****. It will replace the current method of quarter and a year companies reports based only on income and revenues.. It will be used by investors. The values of companies with high scores on the followings will be higher and they will get priority on government and public bids. Include factors such as: * Equality level of employs salaries and bonus. *Percentage of employs with personal limited capabilities. *Bonuses played on 4 years delay- valued on the company achievement during this long period and not quarter income. 3: Differentiation between the higher and lower Salary and bonus of government and public companies should be limited to the scale of 1 to 7. 4: Create a new type of companies- social companies –that will be rewarded by governments and public sector. Creativity and investment on human being life improvement should be encouraged. Not only direct money making. Example: A company that find and implement a idea that reduced the crime rate in a area by 20% should get 50% of the governmental savings from the budget

Part1 Alternative economic system or alternative life style? The question of life philosophy is the leading question. Economy systems are a part of a life philosophy. Unfortunately I cannot question the proper life philosophy suitable for 21 century people in a comment> that for I limit myself to some points related to the Alternative Economy question> -- From all the systems – Capitalism, Socialism, Communism, Theocracy I favor Capitalism. is closed to human being nature and not an ideal that isforced on people against human nature However the classic Capitalism needs changes. ____ 1:** Compete by creating values on initiative, creativity, efficiency, quality but not labor without social rights*** Globalization is a good idea however it is badly implemented. Competition and work transfer should be limited by international conventions to countries and enterprises providing the same social benefits to the works. It should be enforce by lows in the attending countries. --- Only few people benefit economically from the technological revolution. They get richer only because they are in the junctions of decision making without contributing to create real prosperity. (Banks and corporation managers,high level officials-unlike the few start up entrepreneurs. All the others are losing. The people in the free world have straggled for over 100 years for 8 working hours,illness insurance,vacation, retirement benefits,right of employed. The last 3 decades they are losing social rights. People on the developing world lucky to get jobs don’t get western social benefits. Worldwide competition has a huge potential of distributing wealth across the globe.

Bill Stone: I'm going to the moon. Who's with me?
We are only scratching the issued people have to solve ahead of sending people to leave on other planets. The major issue is not cheap space energy. Assume that energy availability is solved Only a few examples we have to solve: The journey will take many years. The mission will have to be self supported. Sustain life of human being are more complex than technical issues. Technical Solutions will be required for two different environmental types: Space journey and the planet. 1: People will need medical care for the space jenny and leaving on the planet. How many medics specialist will be needed and what will be equipment to carry?(teeth, surgeries, internal, eyes , hard experts and others?) 2: Food production for the space journey and later on the planet will have to be local We will need to carry initial vegetables seeds and animals to start a far away leaving.

Hans Rosling: The good news of the decade?
The way to catastrophe is paved by many good wills. Are we marching to collapsing societies? What she'll be done to avoid this? -- Reduce child mortality- welcomed! Increase life period- welcomed! Increase economical income- welcomed! Increase life quality- welcomed! --- Results in Europe United ( a partial and simple to demonstrated example): Population gets older. Retirement age delayed. Young people unemployment is increasing leading to unrest. Budget Expenses of healthcare, social support of the elders increasing leading to budget deficits. Immigration to EU from countries with a different fife philosophy increases leading to the question what is the European culture. _______ Following One idea for consideration: We have to develop an integrative analysis of long term treads of human life on top of one single case at a time. The outcomes of the integrative analysis should be translated into measurable sets of goals for governments worldwide

Should everyone of us fear the moment when he achieves his biggest dream ? How will his life be after achieving the ultimate dream?
The answer is not a mathematical binary reply: YES or NOT. Every person has a different character and a different answer. lt and not one size feet all. People are drived by our human being nature and once they achieved their dream, after a while, they will find a new dream to chase after. Some the human being characteristic, such as endless curiosity, quest of discovery, willing more of…,asking the question "what is wrong and how to solve this"" drives the human being form a hunter similar to other creatures on the mother earth to the moon, occupy wall street, mother Tereza, Bill Gates, Budha, Che Guevara. This endless cycle is the human being blessing as well our curse. You will find your personal reply only when you will achieve your dream. Don’t be afraid of the unknown. Take it as a challenge of discovering new horizons. (Only the very few materialize their dreams and are on the position to provide a answer from inside .All the other are guessing- as I do

Wadah Khanfar: A historic moment in the Arab world
** Democracy- YES. ** Parties promoting Islamism such as Muslim brotherhood- NO Watch BBC program the Doha debate about Egypt elections. The debate is good, faire and challenging In the debate the Muslim brotherhood has been disclosed: They are playing the classical Islamist game. 1: Diverting people's attention away from their agenda toward imaginary external enemies. 2: Claiming that they want only 30% sites in parliament and not run for presidednt. Remember: Hamas the Muslim brotherhood branch in Gaza and Hisbulha in Lebanon claimed the same a couple of years ago. Today Gaza is controlled by Hams and Lebanon is controlled by Hisbula 3; Classical double language: saying soft word to the west however the trouth is said in Arabic. When confronted with the double language they diverting the question to another issue. The example was the question about Muslim brotherhood leader speech broadcasted on BBS program Third eye Egypt. The speech of the Muslim brotherhood leader in Cairo delivered in Arabic, before 1 million people saying is: !!!!! Hitler didn’t finish the job against the Jews. !!!!!! Now the Muslims brotherhood will finish the job 4: Islamist demand unity however they are forgetting to say that it should be under Islamist wings. The people should know Muslim Brotherhood program in Arabic and not in English: *Government by Muslim lows. *Non elected Islam religious leaders will monitor that the elected government follows their guidelines. *Woman will be educated to perform their Islamic home duties. *Christians will not be permitted to be managers on top of Muslims. * A Muslim can come closer to Allah by waging jihad against all non-Muslims,Christians,Jews, atheists,or polytheists in every possible manner.Dr. Ahmad 'Abd about Al-Walaa Wa'l-Bara article in the "Muslim brotherhood" ---------- Should Political parties and movements with the following agenda be permitted to take part in the democratic system? Agenda of: oppression, dictatorship, limi
