We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

This is What Happens When a President Outsources Job Creation to Multinational Corporate Executives

Click here to access article by Robert Oak from The Economic Populist.

The author is referring to recent reports from the National Foundation for American Policy. I was unable to find much independent information about this organization. Here are some remarks about NFAP from the author:
Probably the most debunked economic fiction spinner of them all, the NFAP, is used. The NFAP is also these very multinational's personal white paper spin machine.
This report provides more evidence that the middle class in the US is being abandoned by the ruling class, and thus, is increasingly losing their support. This is a dangerous development for the ruling class.
