Steve Bannon’s Economic Perspective

16 Nov 2016
“So I think the discussion of, should we put a cap on wealth creation and distribution? It’s something that should be at the heart of every Christian that is a capitalist — What is the purpose of whatever I’m doing with this wealth? What is the purpose of what I’m doing with the ability that God has given us, that divine providence has given us to actually be a creator of jobs and a creator of wealth?”

So he is Trump’s capitalist spiritual adviser, thinks capitalism is God inspired, and wealthy Judeo-Christians are agents of God to create jobs and more wealth. Bannon is battling for a Judeo-Christian “enlightened capitalism” [not sure what that means], versus State Capitalism [Russia, China, also called Crony/Hillary Capitalism], versus Ayn Rand Libertarian Capitalism. He’s a devoted Capitalist arguing the finer points of other brands of capitalism, and he is definitely a proven expert on branding, a modern Edward Bernays.

The fatal flaw of Capitalism is that it embraces interest/usury, driving growth to its extreme and eventual failure. There are ample warnings against the use of interest/usury and the evils that are spawned.

‘End of Growth’ Sparks Wide Discontent
14 Oct 2016, by Alastair Crooke

“Tons of smart and less smart folks are breaking their heads over where Trump and Brexit and Le Pen and all these ‘new’ and scary things and people and parties originate, and they come up with little but shaky theories about how it’s all about older people, and poorer and racist and bigoted people, stupid people, people who never voted, you name it.

“But nobody seems to really know or understand. Which is odd, because it’s not that hard. That is, this all happens because growth is over. And if growth is over, so are expansion and centralization in all the myriad of shapes and forms they come in.”
