Lessons in economy


I am not an economist and I do not have a degree or any relevant education, but as I like to mention, I watch a lot of lectures by economists from all over the world and I follow the government policies and their costs for the economy of countries and the economy of people.

Centralized vs. Decentralized economy

We call a country in which most of the wealth is in the hands of a very small group of people a centralized economy.

We call a country in which most of the wealth is distributed among most of the people a decentralized economy.

We can look at the United States of America today as an example of a centralized economy, where most of the wealth is held in the hands of a very small group of people.The results can then be easily seen, the country’s foreign debt is increasing (the US is currently in $25 trillion in debt) and the common people are poorer than ever, with more debt, fewer jobs, and food prices skyrocketing all over the USA.

Let’s take another example, the country of Israel.

In the 90’s, Israel replaced its decentralized economy with a centralized economy, moving the whole economy towards the American hi-tech based ecosystem model, letting corporations buy out farmers and local small and medium sized businesses. As a result, we now see an economy where even hi-tech workers struggle with the prices of basic items in the supermarket.

Again, an economy where most of the money is in the hands of a very small group of people.

What will your government do?

The only thing that is not easy to explain is why more and more Western economies are being driven to move away from a decentralized economy to a centralized economy, while looking at the devastating results achieved in the US?

The answer may not be as simple as you think.

Strong economic forces like the World Economic Forum are pushing your country there.

They are all part of that small group of people we mentioned when we defined a centralized economy. As they gain control of resources and countries’ debts, they become richer and more powerful with each country that adopts the centralized approach, while the people of that country become poorer and more indebted.

So what is the solution?

The solution is up to the man on the street, you and me, as always.

We can stop the centralization of our economies by simply following some basic rules:

  1. Do not adopt any kind of digital currency; it is a clear sign of a centralized economy.
  2. Always prefer to buy from small and medium sized businesses rather than chain stores and large corporations.
  3. Go local – If you can, bypass the supply chain and buy directly from the people who make what you’re buying.
  4. Keep cash as king; cash that passes through many hands strengthens your local currency and economy.
  5. Stand up to your government when it promotes corporate and conglomerate life and push for laws that serve you.
  6. Promote agriculture in your country. A country that does not depend on outside sources for food is a more resilient country overall.
