Like most people who want to avoid arguments, I am not a big fan of discussing money, religion, or politics. I find that you can be in disagreement with certain people on one of these topics and they will still try to turn the discussion into an argument. Oscar “Dean” Windham, the author of All About Equity Spending… With a Love Story, wrote this book in a way that I found highly educational and entertaining. He manages to explain his ideas about our economy in a way that did not raise my ire. Writing in a friendly, easygoing style, All About Equity Spending introduces concepts the author believes will resolve the United States’ financial woes. He also includes a satirical fictionalized account of a place in another dimension where equity spending is used and the country does not have financial problems.
Currently in the United States, the author believes there is no need for any type of federal taxation. He also thinks that our nation is facing a pseudo financial crisis, and that things are not as bad as we are told. His premise about “equity spending,” involves paying for our government expenditures by “electronically generating the money,” based upon the equity that we have in the United States. You have to read All About Equity Spending to get the full gist of what he is proposing, because he can explain it a lot better than I can.
To show how this plan can work, Windham takes us into another dimension to a place called “La Noisuled,” which if spell backward means something else. In this land, there is a president who has an oversight committee composed of six people. Known as “The Six,” this group created a plan that solved all of the financial problems that the people were dealing with. This also included issues with health care, money lenders and the oil crisis. Naming this plan “P.O.O.F.O.O.S.I.E.” and secretly housing it at “Fort Knockers,” The Six manage to use it to do away with all forms of federal taxation and develop social programs including one for health care. As a result, the economy of the country became such a success it created negative unemployment. Meaning there were more jobs than there were people.
While all this is happening, the president’s son falls in love with an incredibly beautiful and intelligent scientist. Desperate to help his mother, who has been sucked into another dimension that sounds a lot like earth, the son decides to enlist the help of his girlfriend to find out the logistics of this plan so that he can send it to his mom which would allow her to save her world. This story involves quite an adventure!
I enjoyed reading All About Equity Spending. . .With a Love Story, and am intrigued by the ideas the author presents. Author Oscar “Dean” Windham definitely will make readers think outside the box. Readers will also feel a lot more positive about the future status of our economy and get to enjoy a fun story while gaining a new perspective.
