The main goal this essay is to provide some economic and historical facts for providing a possible solution to our current economic policy dilemma, thus improving the welfare of all citizens. The ultimate goal is to enhance our nation's capacity to deal with internal and foreign threats today. The bottom line of solving the problem is: we need a bipartisan concept with compromise and mutual respect with compassion. Tax reform, determination of which spending is productive and which is wasteful, trade negotiations, heath care reform, ... are essential economic issues needed to be solved by our Congress and the President.
