The Sustainable Societies Programme (SSP)

70% of 220 nations were collapse-trending before COVID. Collapse is dangerous, expensive, and avoidable; and a mature capitalism is here again because we returned to the unsustainable policies of 1900’s neoliberalist theory – permitting Business Laissez-faire, Low Governance small-government, Open Markets, Low Tax, Starvation Wages, low Welfares – and the Roaring-20s’ low Family Values too

Global Leadership

The correction of unsustainable 1920s policies in the 1930s and 1940s by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, created the greatest turnaround economy and society in history. At CSQ, the study of similar successes – in history and in Econometrics today, create scientific “foundational principles” and curriculum for the emerging academic field of World Leadership

Transition Economics and Engineering

Academic quagmires cost every nation $4.3 to $30 billion per day today. CSQ Research’s Fact-Tank/Do-Tank, Transition Economics, Transition Engineering, and World’s Largest Data Science Library – WAOH were created to correct systemic mediocity in peer-review epistemology – because this is needed again

$4,300,000,000 lost per day

CSQ develops essential research and science with the aim of enabling every nation’s Good Lives, Self-sufficiency, and Prosperity

Science for Sustainable Economies

CSQ Research takes on Global Leadership and tackles today’s big problems with big thinking and proven solutions. We suggest that you start with a review of Transition Economics, then the WAOH Econometrics Library, ACT Political Parties, and Worthwhile Industries. End of War: Managing Mature Capitalisms is our most recent comprehensive engineering plan for building reliably successful societies

TASK Academic Challenge

TASSC is The Academic Sustainable Societies Challenge – or simply TASK. Universities are the top-down feeder systems to curriculums at high schools, middle, and elementary school programs in every nation. 70% of nations are collapsing today however – because democratic voters don’t know what to vote for, and also what to guard against TASK qualifies and grades every higher-learning school […]

ACT – One-Vote Turnaround

In World Leadership studies, economies collapse or advance based-on the policies of their political parties. FDR created the greatest economy in history; so the scientific method’s observation requirement, tells us that those policies are proven and reliable. In most large democracies, however, no political parties support his proven policies

WAOH Data Science Library

The World at our Hands Library is a socio-economic data science library and repository for all things proven in Transition Economics Students have access to thousands of TEP and Causality Reports, and “Methods” used provide context to explain how policy and econometric sciences intersect best

Transition Economics (TE)

Transition Economics (TE) is new, easy to learn, game-changing econometric science. TE proves that Productivity, and not Wealth, builds great economies and societies. Where Economics is old, theoretical, consensus-based, not-causal, and proven-failed, TE is scientific, causal, and proven. TE deprecates Micro and Macroeconomics with a fact-driven, observed-successful, reliable solution to building abundant societies and prosperous economies

Model Economy / Model Society = MEMS

Social Contract

Model Economy * Model Society is the most sophisticated policy decision-support and data science portal on the planet. MEMS lets you align highest-probability-of-success policies to work for your nation, just like the 2011-movie MoneyBall explained how it consistently won in baseball

A scientific approach to Economics and Business is essential for the reliable success of any economy. When an evidence-based, repeatable, scientific method is applied, you will soon realize that “Mankind is our Business” and that citizens are our greatest resource too.

The Transition Economics Proof for Social Contract explains the need for causality in policy-making very well. You can see this in the TEP Chart to the left here, where nations with high Social Contract scores have advancing economies 100% of the time and low-scoring Social Contract nations collapse 100%. This means that “Social Contract” is provably a meaningful and causal measure and goal

For the quantitative number-crunching and presentation complexity that thousands of indicators need, MEMS – Model Economy / Model Society makes smart and responsible policy-making easy

In the same way that a Casino aligns all of its transactions with highest-probability-of-success outcomes, MEMS analyses every indicator, sorts them by causality, creates targets, and monitors the projects that meet the targets that turn-around economies and return prosperity.  MEMS recovers billions of dollars lost every day unreported in every economy

G20 Social Contract Loss

The Social Contract Product – SCP Index

In econometric sciences like Transition Economics, Wealth – as measured by supply, demand, profit and GDP – does not quantitatively advance economies. In science, Productivity advances economies – Social Contract, Opportunity, Healthy populations with Good Lives

Social Contract is a causal indicator and predictor of socio-economic advance or decline 100%. The SCP Index reports the best and worst Social Contract scores in 156 nations worldwide

Social Contract Loss Reports – present the top Social Contract losers and explain that every nation loses an average of $4.3 billion daily to low social contract scores

SCP is a Causal Indicator – unlike GDP, U-3 Unemployment, Disposable Income, and Stock Market Performance reports,  which are not causal reports. Econometrics easily proves that the up or down movement of any of these non-causal report is either not meaningful or entirely meaningless.

Proven Economic Reset

FDR created the American Dream and greatest economy of all time. He did it during a mature capitalism like today and with just a handful of policies. Eleanor took her husband’s empathetic Second Bill of Rights (1944) to the newly formed United Nations as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Japan, Italy, Germany, Austria, and other European countries, lost the war but won the peace – when these rights were added into their constitutions by the Marshall Plan – which was necessary due to millions of civilian deaths after the war – caused by starvation and disease. Today these are the only G7s nations with advancing economies and the average paid vacation days in these countries is six-weeks; Italy has eight – and all have great universal healthcare, great schools and free university in many cases, much lower taxes than the U.S. private insurance scams, home nursing care, pensions, on and on

Seventy years later, FDR’s Second Bill of Rights is considered America’s greatest export – by many successful European nations

FDR’s policies included 20-years of Wealth Distribution (80% estate taxes) and Income Distribution (92% income tax) for the rich, Nationalism, Full-employment, single income families, a strong empathetic social contract, debt-forgiveness, low cost-of-living, and affordable home ownership

Family values played a part. After divorce and a 70% unemployment decimated the nuclear family in the 1930s, Single Income Family policies ensured that both men and women could both live full lives. Women could start families when they wanted, birthrates maintained a sustainable 3.0 children per woman, and families could care for their old and young – so we didn’t need to ask others to raise our children and watch our elderly. Men could not keep high jobs in business or government unless they were “Heads of Households” and a husband’s salary supported both his relations – and his wife’s family too. Similar policies were no different in Russia, Europe, and the United States. Birthrates in North America’s “Double Income Family” policy norm today – are at an unsustainable 1.7 and less. This Double Income Family policy is known widely as Female Equality

CSQ Research theses, courseware, and articles explain sustainable policies in government, business, science, and non-theory-based Transition Economics – and many are also summarized in the pull-down Policy menus above

Social Contract is the biggest problem of our time or of any other in human history. Why? Because today’s 70-year-old monetary system cycle is the first to mature to a normal imbalance within a mature nuclear era. By the timing of World War commencements in 1914 and 1939 – which were the result of our two previous low social contracts and mature capitalisms, we are within just ten years of the correctable 100% destruction of most living things on this planet by a World War III. Climate is a minor correctible issue in comparison and climate has never led to World Wars. Low Social Contracts lead to major wars reliably in history

The United Nations was created to ensure “big picture” planning and to prevent another mature capitalism.  Its failure to fulfill its primary mission explains why it can’t keep up with world conflicts and this is also why our schools don’t teach democratic voters the importance of sustaining Social Contracts today. 95% of countries are experiencing and treating far-less-important social problem symptoms now (mental health, poverty, etc), without understanding what is the underlying cause. At CSQ Research we solve causal (root cause) problems first, we build sustainable societies globally (World Peace), and we do this transparently – and invite readers to learn to understand a defendable scientific approach that is proven to work in only the most successful countries and economies reliably

Mature Capitalism

Capitalistic policies that work well to build a strong Social Contract (SC) early-on in a well-balanced monetary system, don’t work well later as the cycle matures and unbalances. This is due to first, the mathematical certainty of compounding annual inflations; and second, due to the natural imbalances created by successful unmanaged capitalism in any economy. As annual inflations of 1% to 14% compound for 60-years, a 1% inflation in 2019 is now 60-times (60% inflation) in 1960 dollars. Just 5% of nations today live the American Dream still because they actively managed the balance between incomes and cost-of-living; they ensured a strong Social Contract. Transition Economics (TE) proves that a strong Social Contact is causal to advancing economies at all points in a monetary system cycle’s maturity – and that a low-SC nation sends their economy into a collapse-trending reliably

In countries that did not protect their social contracts, productivity stalled because citizens could not help their country to capitalize on its resources – and so the greatest resource of any nation, its people, became burdens on the economy. A weak Social Contract (low-SC) nation loses an average of $4.3 billion per day and this cost is ignored unreported by GDP reports. Politicians present GDP reports only because they are always positive by design – but the first step to solving any problem is recognizing that you have one.

We didn’t have the data nor the computer-generated infographics to visualize, easily present, and understand complex economies 50-years ago, but we do have these today. Unfortunately, a typical 20-year Adoption cycle, delays our top schools who still teach theory in how economies should work, instead of teaching how economies do work – in transparent, verifiable Proofs as all sciences insist. Micro and Macroeconomics are theory-only – and these studies are also proven to be dangerous fiction in observation; only twenty to thirty high-Social-Contract nations, have prevented a mature capitalism today, this is from a field of 220 nations as well. And these are the same Economics instructions that built the powderkegs that resulted in World Wars I & II.

Social ContractVoters were never taught the importance of protecting Social Contracts, and other sustainable policies, with their vote – and FDR’s “Second Bill of Rights” was never added to America, Canada, England, France – and many other national Constitutions, to ensure the essential needs of any prosperous society. In North America, Conservative and Liberal political parties offer only unsustainable policies today. Both Right and Left parties obstruct economic prosperity in the same way that FDR’s nine policies (New Deals) were obstructed tirelessly by his Congress and by the Senates of the 1930s. The ACT Party is a solution for democracies wishing to vote for all nine of these proven turn-around policies.

Without proper reporting, economies become like a fleet of vehicles that are run without an oil change for a year. The fleet manager shows terrific cost-savings and is rewarded for his managerial skill; at the end of the year he is given a promotion, leaves the division, and now the next manager is responsible for the long-gone first manager’s costly engine repairs. Housing bubbles, starvation wages, under-reported unemployment, export revenue losses, all run unreported today – while politicians are “applauded” by a GDP report that was designed to always be positive. In 60-years, World GDP has been negative (by -1%) in one year only – 2008 – an economic year as catastrophic as was 1929’s crash.

In news, “isms” – in terms like “Socialism” – can be weaponized. This is because they are an amalgam of ten discussions: in ethics, ownership (public and private, property and production), social programs, merit, economic performance, and more. This ambiguation contravenes Socratic Method’s best-practice of disambiguation (click to see an example disambiguation here). New econometric sciences like TE deprecate many “isms” for this reason – see a USE CASE for Monetary Systems & Terms here. TE also deprecates terms like Liberal and Conservative or Right and Left when describing business and government policies, preferring the terms Sustainable and Unsustainable Policy  instead – and then “Proof”ing/proving that policies are one or the other through both metrics and observation per scientific method.

Hardest hit by these confusing policies, terms, and misreports are the large democracies. Where socially responsible policy corrections were not ensured in national Constitutions, multi-billion-dollar advertising campaigns could redirect voters to prefer policies that damaged social contracts, stalled economies, and also repaid those expensive ad campaigns by sending 95% of all income gains to the top-1% rich. Political opportunists market-tested slogans like “low-tax”, “small government”, “conservative/liberal”, “open markets”, unAmerican, Socialism, Middle Income, Female Equality, and gun ownership, which compelled voters to inadvertently shrink their economies, increase debt, and to create the same dystopic conditions that authors Dickens, Byron, Hugo, Orwell, Aristotle, Hobbes, Tolstoy, Rousseau and many others, warned against during their experiences with mature capitalisms of the past. TE’s World at our Hands Report page explains the problems with each of these misreports.

Mature Capitalism / monetary system imbalance – is extinction-event-level dangerous, its expensive ($4.2 billion per day in Canada; $37 billion in the U.S.), and it is absolutely correctable.
