Abstract:

This paper outlines a national economic strategy to support the national security strategy. The proposed strategy is 2-pronged. First, a domestic component that proposes a reduction of the federal governments role in the economy and proposes a plan to grow the economy. Privatizing social security and reforming education with a voucher plan reduces the federal governments role. To improve the economy requires increasing productivity. Increasing capital and improving education improves productivity. The privatization of Social Security and educational reform proposals will improve productivity. The second prong, the international component, employs the economic instruments to achieve U.S. goals overseas. Specifically, the U.S. will focus on assisting nations in their efforts to improve their governance vice dispensing foreign aid. Our efforts will concentrate on four pivotal states-Mexico, Russia, China, and Turkey. At the same time, the United States will continue to improve international markets by promoting the lowering of tariffs and promoting international standards of banking, securities, and accounting.
