Military-intelligence-industrial-financial-energy-political-complex, along with lobbying and campaign finance, and the revolving door. This is the foundation of the American System. The US not only supplies its own forces but accounts for half of the global arms market.

The sole purpose is to maintain and increase the status, power and wealth of an oligarchy.

In Utopia or Oblivion, Bucky Fuller claimed that turning all this to peaceful use would enable humanity to create a distributed utopia.

NAIRU is an illusion based on a specious "natural rate" that is used to justify running buffer stock of unemployed to "discipline labor." It's a capitalist trick to dupe the rube.

No need for a buffer stock of unemployed when there can be a buffer stock of employed with a JG, BIG, and welfare transfers for special needs.
