Education

“Inherent in our children is the innovation, drive, and imagination that have made, and will continue to make, this country great. By investing energy, talent, and dollars now in the education and training of young Americans – the scientists, statesmen, industrialists, farmers, inventors, educators, clergy, artists, service members, and parents, of tomorrow – we are truly investing in our ability to successfully compete in, and influence, the strategic environment of the future. Our first investment priority, then, is intellectual capital and a sustainable infrastructure of education, health and social services to provide for the continuing development and growth of America’s youth.”  A National Strategic Narrative

One Response to Education

  1. David Chester says:

    Our older children should be introduced to a strategically important subject of how our society is built and manages itself (however badly). The subject actually is one of macroeconomics and for beginners its so easy for them to be misled by being biased and deliberately being fed confusing information, which puts them off learning and stunts the potential progress of REALLY good intelligent people who can manage to guide our society in a fair and just way. The non-political way for then to be introduced to this vital subject is through my paper “SSRN 2600103 A mechanical Model for Teaching Macroeconomics”.

    This is aimed at getting their interest and the associated book (of mine) may then be useful to guide them into a proper understanding of what makes our society work and how to develop a tool for exploring proposals for changes. The book “Consequential macroeconomics–Rationalizing About How Our Society Works” may be obtained as a free e-copy by writing to me at chesterdh@hotmail.com and telling my where the interest in it lays.
