RE: Proposal for a new social contract
I want to add, for emphasis, that the government controls ALL natural resources (land, air, water, mineral deposits, etc). They keep it in trust for the citizenry.

They use whatever part of it is needed to satisfy basic needs and then can and will lease the rest to the private sector, in exchange for goods and services the private sector can provide, like fixing roads, providing computers, maintaining buildings, etc., etc.

The exchange will have to be negotiated and long-term contracts can be drawn up between the government and the private sector entrepreneurs.

Private companies can use these resources, according to clear guidelines of sustainability. They can not sell or transfer any of it, can not speculate with it, if they go bust and stop operating, these resources will go back to government control and can be leased to some other private company.
