I am a fan of Thom Hartmann, except for his support of Mrs. Clinton's Presidential candidacy, as it runs counter to his superb analysis presented in today's Commonwealth Club presentation of his new book, "The Coming Crash of 2016". For my part, I have practiced neuropsychiatric medicine for 40 years, until retiring to write a book on stress, by the above title, 4 years ago. The book describes my discovery of a population regulation mechanism operating in all mammals, including humans, and increasingly operatrive in crowded populations. As a practicing medical doctor, I and my patients came to realize that our core ill-health problem is a chronically over-activce stress response, resulting in the top ten killers of modern humans and utterly abscent in living hunter-gatherers as well as the forensic examinations of the known remains of our hunter-gatherer ancestors dating back over 60,000 years. This human population regulation mechanism is explained in detail in a free e-book PDF, put online by the staff at Paul and Anne Ehrlich's MAHB (Millenium Alliance for Humanity and the Biosphere) webvsite, but consists of over-activation of the adrenal glands and autonomic nervous system. It has been well studied and described in many mammalian species, but largely ignored in humans, as most human health research is now dictated by gridlocked government bureaucracies and big pharma. If it's not going to lead to the marketing of a new exspensive drug, then who cares? Understanding our human overpopulation problem and setting about to correct it with world-wide one-child families will lead to the prevention of our current health problems. No corporate profit here, so who cares?

Again, congradulations to Mr. Hartmann on his excellent economic analysis of our current situation and this wonderful website.

How To Bring Back A Middle Class

Thom plus logo From the 1930s to the Reagan Revolution, America grew the largest and most robust middle class in history. Along with strong unions, the main driver of that was that people earning more than about $10 million in today's money confronted a top tax rate of 91% until the 60s, and 67% until Reagan came into office.
