"One comment on the blog equated the IDM model to the economic theory of Communism because of central planning, and hence considered it to be a failure given the collapse of Soviet Communism."

Apek, is it so? I won't think so. Its due to various other political issues and factors leaded to that. communism is still strong in China, Libya, Vietnam etc

Jacob, I agree with you. However, USSR was a representative of Communism around the world and USA as representative of Capitalism...that is what the race was all about. Amongst the two Spviet collapsed first and with way things are going in US...US seems to be the next unless there are good economic reforms.

Apek, you mean US capitalism is going to collapse?

That is whole reason why I have authored my upcoming book as PANACEA for our economic troubles. If we do not reform our regressing economy...Economic collapse seems inevitable by end of 2015 or early 2016.

I know you are putting forth a solution...what do you see as the biggest stumbling blocks or challenges to getting to the new reality you propose, Apek?

Stumbling blocks

The biggest stumbling blocks is being unable to convince folks who do not have an open mind to listen to new ideas. Did you know that when US ENTERED GREAT DEPRESSION in 1929....the president of US...FDR did not give any heed to suggestions of John Maynard Keynes for nearly a decade and US economy worsened during firt decade of depression. After FDR followed the heretic ideas of Keynes was US able to come out of its economic depression. Hence, If people are willing to throw back the previous ideas that they have and listen to my ideas and suggestions with a presence of common sense...that is what I need. But, SOme people have preconceived notions and they will not accept any new ideas even though exiisting ideas are failing the businesses and failing the country. This I believe would be the biggest stumbling block that I would face.

Thank you for the history lesson, Apek. Those who disregard history are doomed to repeat it.

The USA, in my opinion, isn't in fear of imminent collapse. At the same time, success in many scenarios (supply chain, general business, etc.) are dependant on spotting potential directions (both good and bad) early and reacting accordingly. that's part of what makes this an important discussion.

I agree with you Hailey. We can learn from past mistakes and move ahead. But, that willingness to change the direction is very important.

Apek, 

As someone who watches history documentaries during my tea/lunch breaks and other free time I can positively tell you that I don't see any chance of humanity learning from their mistakes any time soon.

Society is not evolving at the same pace technology does, which is a problem all in its own.

"But, that willingness to change the direction is very important."

Yes, that's true. For that to have a positive effect you need plenty of individuals willing to change the direction.

Do you think there are enough individuals willing to change direction? And in the hypotetical case that there were, why things haven't changed direction yet, then? :/ 

-Susan

Susan, Good point. The coming economic crisis because of our inability and unwillingness to progress as humanity...will force this change for our best. I think we are nearing a big economic crisis of our lifetime. The steps that humanity takes from here will decide the future of our species. I believe we will make the right choice. Best wishes, Apek

"The steps that humanity takes from here will decide the future of our species."

That's when it becomes hard to believe in a bright future of this planet. :D

@Apek, is there a starting point that you would suggest in terms of reform? it's a pretty complex issue...

I have some near term and long term proposals. For the near term...I want backshoring of manufacturing to US. In the long term , I want US to go for a balanced economy so that we have low unemployment, no deficits, no national debt, no consumer debt, robust economic growth and no need of any BIG government.
