Hi again Stephen!

It’s not a line of research that I would be likely to get into myself, because my assessment would be that the opportunity cost would be far too high for me to be able to justify that— but I certainly wish you well in your efforts to analyse your ideas and develop them further.

I’m afraid I’m no expert in how you could attract more public attention to your proposals. What I would say, however (having had a brief look at your website)— and I hope you don’t mind me venturing an opinion on this — is that your key ideas might benefit from being presented with considerably more clarity, so that the key features of how your scheme would operate would be much more obvious to the reader.

I’ll give you a little example. You write: “There could never be another recession. Every adult who wanted a job would be guaranteed a job.”

The obvious response to that would be to ask who exactly it would be that would be guaranteeing them jobs and by what mechanism they might be forced to do that — but it isn’t immediately clear where you’ve provided the answers to such questions. And one might ask how such measures would make a recession impossible — but you seem to move on to other ideas, without immediately providing a clear answer.

I just think you should provide a much clearer overview of what your proposal is, so someone can read it and feel confident they’ve got a really firm grasp on what your scheme would involve.

I hope you find that to be useful feedback.

I hope all goes well for you!
