10 Steps To Becoming A Productive Country Again

with one comment

The Internet loves lists and there is no better time then now to put this one up.  I put this up earlier, but I think the lyrics are even more on point with the passage of the bailout.

  1. Focus on what made you great, freedom.
  2. Respect the rights of others to be free as well as yourself. (its a hard one)
  3. Do not put blind faith in sound bites and slogans. Think critically.
  4. Don’t spend money you don’t have.
  5. Reward people for success not for failure.
  6. Be guided by principles not politics or personalities.
  7. Respect the individual’s right to keep the fruit of his labor.
  8. Don’t let fear guide your decisions.
  9. Realize that the government in all instances is a reflection of the people’s will.
  10. Practice these individually and eventually we will practices them together.

I am sure there are more, but that is all I have on a Saturday morning.

  1. I like your list and would put following the same Principles of our forefathers first on the list. If we always follow those time honored Principles, everything else falls into pleace.
    Here is my list:
    13 Key Principles to Prosperity
    1) God is the Author or Prosperity
    2) Faith begins with self-interest (NOT selfish)
    3) Agemcy Implies Stewardship (self reliancce is key)
    4) Perspective Determines Action
    5) People Are Assets (material thing have no intrinsit value)
    6) Human Life Value is the source and creator of All Property Vale (what would property be worth if everyone died?)7
    7) Dollars Follow Value/Value Follows Value (dollars are only repesentative of money)
    8) Exchange Creates Wealth (wealth is not measured indollars)
    9) Profit is the Tool of Validation (a representation of value created)
    10) Productivity is the Standard – of performance (There is NO entitlement!)
    11) Force Destroys Freedom and Prosperity (deception and coercion included)
    12) Collective Action has no Unique Moral Authority (govt. proves this every day)
    13) Personal Liberty Requires Private Property

    A good exercise to do with these Principles is to ask… therefore what???
