Silicon Valley Congressional Candidate
- Jason Mallory -
Mallory2020 is an idea contributing Silicon Valley Congressional Campaign producing the best solutions going for addressing the following Issues:
1) Technology in the Workforce (Automation / UBI),
2) Climate Change,
3) Border Issues,
4) Health Care for All,
1) Technology in the Workforce (Automation / UBI):
Automation makes human lives better, but takes human jobs. How we evolve our economy with technology is now at a pivotal point in history. We as a country need to continue technological progress, which means we cannot tax or regulate it to the point it cannot develop, but we might also want to determine what is "street legal" for a robot, and people also need income as technology makes many human jobs obsolete in the workforce (maybe 50% of the upcoming generation of workers). To balance this, and deal with the growing-pains of technology we must address the changing economic landscape, the balancing of Supply and Demand, and how to stabilize these things long term.
Existing solutions are for Universal Basic Income (UBI) which is a partial solution. It is wealth distribution of "free" money given to citizens, and which long term threatens to form a UBI dependent society. This free payment can help the Demand side of the economy, but does nothing for the Supply side, which inevitably means prices will rise to compensate UBI funding taxes, making the UBI less valuable, and the economy could enter a downward economic / inflationary spiral. UBI alone cannot cure the problem unless there is something also growing the Supply side, creating new businesses and growing the middle class, enabling the economy and independence.
With technology, the Supply side of the economy has consolidated from many businesses into only a few very large organizations. This shrinks the Supply side and total number of jobs available, and also looms the threat that those few organizations can effectively monopolize the automated workforce and take society in whatever direction the profits them. Unless planned for, the future free market would likely need to go through a process similar to the development of anti-monopoly laws, but regarding ownership of labor. So "Simple UBI" is simply not a sufficient answer. A "Smart UBI" may be.
"Every citizen has the right to one equal share of the automated labor force, an equal vote for what it does or does not do, and a fair share of what is produced as a whole."
Does anyone have a better policy than this?
If we made it law, citizens would vote for what automated labor does or does not do, and "We The People" can remain in control of what work gets done, what goals are accomplished, and where we go as civilized society. Also, this enables a fair UBI payment, funded by a profit sharing system from automated labor being rented hourly instead of proprietary owned. This UBI payment would start small today, but grow proportionately with automation replacing people at jobs, getting larger over time and softening the growing-pains of this economic transition. Doing it this way will not overtax the citizens or businesses, and it enables access to hourly rate automation tools for small businesses to be competitive against big businesses, distributing not just wealth to the Demand side, but access to the means of automated production to the Supply side, and therefore growing the middle class and economy overall. Further, this hourly rate system enables another knob to tune the economy with, similar to adjusting interest rates. It also enables "We The People" to set labor rates through labor supply based on citizen votes for what the automated labor is available for use for. These value additions make this policy far superior to a simple UBI, and enables a Democracy 2.0 and middle class post automation of the workforce.

2 and 3 Combo) Climate Change and Border Issues:
Hyperloop on the Border! Competitive to the Panama Canal as a shipping route this hyperloop would generate toll money and pay for itself. It doubles as a border barrier yet preserves the US Mexico relationship by sharing same day coast to coast deliveries for both countries. Not for people, just for shipping containers, Pacific to Atlantic Ocean transportation estimated in about 5 hours using less energy than electric vehicles on roads removing a large carbon footprint from vehicles and boats no longer travelling through Panama Canal. Great for the Environment, for Business and Consumers, for National Security, and for Border Relations while also establishing the United States as a Climate Change / New Green Technology Leader.
4) Healthcare for All
"The Carfax of Healthcare" A free phone App patients can carry into the doctor's office with them, displaying a data driven diagnosis suggestion, with various known treatment options displayed with treatment outcome percentages and costs relevant to the patient's condition and insurance policy. Participants will upload their medical data enabling the data driven diagnosis suggestion, along with their insurance information so as to be provided estimated curative procedure outcomes with success percentages and dollar cost figures per their insurance policy. This will minimize Malpractice Insurance cases for hospitals and insurance companies, while educating and enabling patients to have compiled research on their specific condition saving the doctor time and liability by helping them be efficiently well informed.
Further, it can help identify medical procedures that can save public funds through curative procedures, such as for a disabled person to receive a new surgery instead of opiates or other pain management healthcare results.
