This is one of my major economic ideas regarding me creating my political ideology Pascism. Democracy is an obstacle to governance. When the people have direct power over every aspect of their lives, they will often support their own interests which only are beneficial short term and are likely to not support long term interests if they hurt their short term interests. An example of this is people are unwilling to have tax increases so they decide to vote for politicians who slash educational budgets to save money on the budget. Stupid things like this in the long run with a population of 300 million plus can destabilize the nation. Something we are all too well aware of given the recent deficit crisis that happened in Congress. This instability is clearly problematic to the United State's continued survival. Competing economic interests as well as interests of businessmen can hurt long term economic objectives and independence of not only our country, but any country. For a nation that likes to pride itself about being a leader in capitalistic ideals, we seem to forget all too quickly what happens to losers in capitalism. So there needs to be a counter to this instability and other economic problems and variables. The geopolitical arena is simply getting too competitive for America to not take serious efforts to ensure economic independence through intervention at various levels into businesses and industries. This is where the Department for the Strategic Assessment of Industry and Resources (DSAIR) comes in. The objective of DSAIR is to research, study, invest, and influence specific areas of interest in economic sectors within the United States. This government oversight is not regulatory in nature, but more like a semi-independent think tank that works as an economic consultant and investor with the budget of the United States government. Besides serving a role in the United States, it also serves a role outside the United States as economic spies as well as investing in other economic assets in other countries. To think the security of a nation simply depends on the number of weapons and men with guns is no longer possible. In order to afford all these things, a strong treasury is needed and that is built on the back of a strong economy. DSAIR makes sure that a strong economy is created, developed, and stabilized in a competitive multi-polar economy.
