Some good news to report for those who are interested in Mission-Type Economic Planning (MTEP). While California and Texas may seem like the two extremes of Jeffersonianism at the moment, the Work-Standard is capable of allowing both States to become the vanguards of Hamiltonianism by dint of their geographic and population sizes. And in Hegelian Dialectics, wherever there is a Unity of Opposites, the Synthesis between the two will eventually yield characteristics of the other.
For example, in an America where the Federalist Party controls the Federal government under the Work-Standard and Hamiltonianism, the Californian State Command Economy will share similar characteristics to the Texan State Command Economy, the Texan State Command Economy sharing similar characteristics to the Californian State Command Economy. The challenge that I see with California and Texas under Hamiltonian Federalist Socialism are the same issues: unlike the Federal government and the rest of the Union, those two are way more sensitive to the Work-Standard’s Mechanization Rate (MR), Economic Socialization (ES), Solidarity Rate (SR), the Attrition/Inaction [A/I] Rates, and Economic Foreignization. Both States have strengths and weaknesses that can be offset by the other State.
- “Federalist California” will attract foreign investment with higher Economic Foreignization, its State Command Economy investing more of its Arbeit and Geld into the Federalist Command Economy on behalf of the Federal government. California is also a far better contributor to the UFSE (Unified Federalist Student Economy) than Texas thanks to its more student-oriented Universities, in addition demonstrating a greater emphasis on Digital Arbeit and Digital Geld thanks to the State’s focus on the Federalist Intranet.
- “Federalist Texas” stresses Autarky in its relations with the Federal government and foreign nation-states of the Socialist world order at the World State Organization (WSO). While the State Command Economy contributes far less in Arbeit and Geld to the US Economy, Texas is a far better contributor to the Military-Industrial Complex, demonstrating emphasis on Military Arbeit and Military Geld thanks to the State’s focus on the Armed Forces.
How would this translate to their respective Command Economies under the Work-Standard? We can expect Federalist Texas to emphasis on the State Command Economy, whereas Federalist California will focus on the Federalist Command Economy. But the most obvious is how California and Texas accommodates the UFSE. That would be the ultimate distinguishing characteristic, leveling the playing field in terms of which State is far more attuned to Mission-Type Economic Planning (MTEP), the Federal-State Tournament System, the Reciprocal-Reserve Banking System, and the Federal-State Vocational Civil Service System.
In the UFSE, an ambitious and talented Californian high school student is more likely to join the Federal Civil Service than their Texan counterpart. An ambitious and talented Texan high school student is more likely to join the Texan Civil Service than their Californian counterpart. What this means is that Federalist Texas will have a great emphasis on Municipal and State Enterprises as opposed to Federal-State and Federal Enterprises, whereas the reverse will be true for Federalist California.
The real downsides for such an arrangement is simple insofar as both States are very sensitive to whatever is going on in the rest of the Union and at the Federal government itself. The differences are like night and day under Socialist Economics and Socialist Finance:
- If Federalist California is prospering, its State Command Economy has the agility to consolidate its returns of Arbeit and Geld more easily by being in the position to lead the rest of the Union and Texas by extension.
- Conversely, if the entire Union is not doing well, the effects will be far worse in Federal California, but Federalist Texas has the resiliency needed to recover at a faster rate by being in the position to lead the rest of the Union and California by extension.
Having the Federal government to strike a balance between the two Command Economies under Hamiltonianism is like a culinary artist learning how to cook Texan Cuisine for Californians and Californian Cuisine for Texans. The Californians may find Texan Cuisine to be unhealthy, just as the Texans may find Californian Cuisine to be unoriginal. Thus, the best combination of both must be authentic and healthy for Californians and Texans alike.
