Coming soon: new usa map

The Federal District “The Great Lakes”, the Federal District “The Great Plains” ... Why not? The bulky, bureaucratic and costly state structure in the US should be eliminated; such a territorial division is no good - either economically or politically. In addition, each state feels almost independent state. These plans are not speculations of an alternative press or the works of leisure conspiracy theorists who “exposed” the plans of the “world government”. The plan to remake the United States was published in the New York Times.




The author of the proposal on the new territorial division is well-known analyst and publicist of Indian origin, Parag Khanna. His big article on the American "federal districts" was published in an influential publication "New York Times" (under the heading "Opinion").

In the “thick of the American presidential primaries,” the author notes, it’s easy to see how the 50 states are increasingly diverging socially and economically. America is reorganizing around regional infrastructure lines and urban clusters that are ignored not only by the states themselves, but even by national borders. The problem is that such an economy is “not catching up” with politics.

America faces a two-part problem. If the countries with developed economies in Western Europe and Asia are oriented toward strong urban sectors where advanced industry is concentrated, then “American domestic policy, alas, remains committed to an outdated political structure.”

Today, states are preserved, and the country is economically and socially drifting towards freer urban and regional entities, "big cities and urban archipelagoes that promote global economic schemes."

For example, in the northeastern metropolis, stretching from Boston to Washington, more than 50 million people live. This territory gives 20 percent of US GDP. Greater Los Angeles gives more than 10% of GDP. And these "city-states" are much more important than most American states. The ability to "connect" to these urban clusters determines the long-term economic viability of Americans much more than the states in which they live.

Such a territorial “rearrangement” has profound economic consequences. America is increasingly divided not between the "red" and "blue" states, but between the centers in which industrial power is concentrated. Some parts of America are “connected” to this force, others are “disconnected” from it.

Bruce Katz from the Brookings Institute recently noted that the 350 of the main populated areas of America (cities with more than three million people) recovered from the financial crisis much better than small cities like Dayton, Ohio. There, the opposite is true: the crisis is growing stronger in the “disconnected” cities.

The problem is that, as long as economic reality goes on, the “fifty-model model” stands still. The 50-standard model means that federal and local resources are concentrated in the state capital (often a small isolated city). Other American cities "are increasingly cut off from the national agenda."

The United States needs to “return to a more flexible and wider way of thinking,” which was practiced in ancient times. It is necessary to rethink approaches to the “national function of the economy,” the analyst believes. But this can not be done to someone "alone."

The current Congress still thinks from the point of view of the states, and America needs a new map, the publicist is sure.

Creating new “regions” is not at all necessary: ​​they already exist on two levels. First, seven different superregions have already emerged, determined by the general economic and demographic situation (the Pacific coast and the Great Lakes). It is in these districts that the “new urban archipelagoes” are concentrated. Federal policy should be reoriented towards the emerging archipelagoes, and also sent to the aid of other archipelagoes (Minneapolis, Memphis). The new federal thinking will allow the formation of a network of progressive regions connected by improving automobile, railways and fiber optic cables, which will result in the emergence of a “united American city-state”.

Such shifts can be found not only in the United States, but throughout the world, the analyst is sure. For example, despite the millennial cultural traditions and differences in the provinces, China still overcomes its internal borders and is moving towards becoming an empire consisting of 26 mega-cities clusters with a population of up to 100 million each, centered around such nodes as Beijing, Shanghai , Guangzhou and Chongqing-Chengdu. Western countries - Italy, Britain - follow the Chinese example. So why not America to look at best practices?

We need to start with a simple one — not with the definition of “borders”, but with the identification of existing lines of infrastructure, supply chains and telecommunications, the most important routes, which will then allow us to determine the outlines of the emerging “superregions” and “new urban archipelagoes”.

And it's not just about federal politics. Current states should cooperate without borders. For example, Tennessee and Kentucky could join forces and become an advanced manufacturing center for the global automotive industry with appropriate cross-border infrastructure. If they can coordinate research and development at public and private universities, they will eventually be able to gain a competitive advantage.

Where possible, such planning should “jump over” international borders. Detroit’s population has dropped to below a million, but the Detroit-Windsor region is the largest border area of ​​the United States and Canada, home to nearly six million people (this is one of the largest border populations in the world). At the same time, both countries are deeply interdependent due to the automotive and metallurgical industries and will only benefit from joint expansion. The fate of Detroit seems almost obvious in this sense.

But in order for these scenarios to become possible, American thinking must go beyond the states. Today, Washington provides minimal support for regional economic efforts and strategies; tomorrow it will have to go much further, even at the risk of displeasing the established political balance between the states and the state.

The next American president will have to go beyond the usual framework and declare a serious policy of attracting new investments in infrastructure and support the shift towards a “new urban political economy” built around transport, engineering, alternative energy, digital technologies and other advanced industries.

Only “connecting” cities will allow the United States to win the “rope-dragging competition” that is conducted in global trade, investment and supply chains. Such an economic master plan will keep America as the world's leading superpower, Hanna believes.

* * *


Parag Hanna knows what he is saying, because the goal of the current president, the goal of the previous president and the goal of the future president of the United States is the same: to preserve America as the leading world superpower. But does the analyst really believe in a bright “regional” American future - with “districts” and “city-states”? Chasing "democracy" all over the world and relying on petrodollars, the United States put the policy cart ahead of the economy. The Detroit mentioned in the article just serves as an example of the impact of the global economy on the industrial American city.

Of course, some wise president could have made the USA a model of political modeling and a production paradise (in the meantime, China would have disappeared, and the Japanese would become impoverished), but only American rulers prefer to spend money not on “infrastructure”, but on hot and cold wars. It is the gratuitous spread of "democracy", they believe, that makes the American nation "exclusive."

        Again Americans measure the decay in money and predict financial division. And their division will be on a national basis - Anglo-Saxons, Latinos, blacks. And it will be measured in the amount of spilled blood. It's my opinion.

            I think your life alone is not enough for this. It will take a long time to wait.
            The idea is beautiful, but utopian, even more utopian than communism.

            The collapse of states into states is a fantasy. There simply are no prerequisites for this, and there is no way to create such conditions. A revolution in the states is impossible because of their existence, because it is not presidents and government that rule the country, but transnational corporations whose representatives sit in the US Senate. There are also such people in the Pentagon and US intelligence agencies. The collapse of the states in this regard, of course, is not possible.
            How many dollar billionaires in Russia? Well 70, well 80.
            And in the states you don’t even need to count, all the money of the world is stupid there. The largest economic and credit (energy) organizations are located in the States.

            But the transformation of the States into something new is quite. After all, the USA itself is a kind of syndicate, a cartel, an association of corporations under one common sign, under one brand. Formally, if the United States anatomical approach is like Russia, by its very nature is a Federation, you’ll be a state consisting of individual independent states united into a single state.
            In their internal structure are completely different. Russia is a state. The USA is a cartel (an association of the largest commercial structures), one of the forms of monopoly.

            Of course there is no way how to bring the states to a state of decay without war. But as utopian as the very idea of ​​state collapse. It is to bankrupt (ruin) those corporations those commercial entities that are located in the United States. But how will this be achieved? Due to the creation here in Russia of similar transnational corporations, which due to the fact that they will be more competitive will force American companies to leave the world stage. Then yes, in the States there may come starvation and the need for change.

            As the saying goes - there is no poison against the poison, acre of another poison.
            Or how else can I say - treat like the like.
            But this is practical and theoretical - impossible.

            PS
            An interesting fact is the United States - United States Of America - literally, then translated as the United States of America. Because The state is a state.

              From the book by Howard Zinn (1922-2010) "The American Empire. From 1492 to the Present".
              "Eleven thousand miners, mostly immigrants (Greeks, Italians, Serbs), worked in southern Colorado for the Colorado Fuel and Iron Corporation, owned by the Rockefeller family. Outraged by the assassination of a union leader, they went on strike to protest low pay , dangerous working conditions, feudal control over their life in villages that were completely subordinated to mining companies.When the strike began, its participants were immediately evicted from the barracks in the mining villages.With the help of the United Union of Miners, they set up tent camps on the nearby hills and continued the strike and picketing, using these settlements as their base. The detectives from the Baldwin-Felts agency hired by the Rockefeller representatives, armed with Gatling machine guns and rifles, raided the tent camps. without letting go to the mines rakebreakers.

              In general, based on the division into states (states), considering what population the United States consists of, you can laugh at the statements of their representatives that this country is democratic.
              In fact, if there had not been a real totalitarian regime and a powerful repressive apparatus, then the country would not have lived so much time. What is described above is like a litmus test of how and in consequence of which this country exists. The described events occurred as a result of minor economic problems. What would happen in the country if they lived like we did after the revolution or the Second World War?
              And, if someone thinks that they can’t repeat this, then he is very mistaken. The USA lives in almost ideal economic conditions. Can this go on forever? And what awaits them when the time comes?

                The USA, on the other hand, is the British who have moved to a quiet comfortable corner, which allows them to carry out their policies without unnecessary stress.

                Well, except that the meteorite will fall.
                According to probability theory, a meteorite is more likely to fall on Russia since it is longer in length.
                Therefore, it is not necessary to approach this issue in an eschatological sense. We can slam both we and they alike. But they have less chance in the current situation.

                My opinion about this subject.
                As long as Russia plays capitalism and democracy, it will be two steps behind the United States. By how Russia in this sense plays on a foreign field. While such a concept as democracy flows through the veins of Russia, fundamentally, fundamentally and geopolitically, success will not be achieved. This is not the way of Russia if you want.

                  As long as Russia plays the totalitarianism of the American model, yes, there will be no success.
                  They are trying to instill in our brains the idea that our state has always been totalitarian, and there, de democracy. For totalitarianism, the territory is not the same, and the population is not enough. What bothers me with "totalitarianism" laughing , roughly speaking, to take a gun, salt, a couple of axes and go into the taiga? To go from there to the city for matches and the same salt. At one time, the tsarist officials somehow got some Kazakh tribes. They gathered and migrated to China.
                  Exaggerating a little, but somehow.
                  The Russian mentality has also been formed over the centuries. He did not appear yesterday. Russia had to adapt in order to survive.

                  Economics is no longer predictable than a meteorite. They survived the "Great Depression". Yes, we have made conclusions, and this will not happen again. But, the processes inherent in the cap. system will lead to another crisis, one way or another. Not an ideal system, and accordingly it contains the law of denial of negation. How many crises have the Western economy experienced in the past 100 years?
                  Personally, I believe that not only the political system of the West is flawed for us, but also the economic one.

      This is how similar processes are going on everywhere. Rural areas and regional centers are becoming impoverished, losing industry. In rural areas, all the more solid mechanization. It is easier for an average agricultural enterprise to have three tractors with a bunch of attachments than teams of peasants. And three people as main workers. For the season, hire 10-15 people for 2-3 months. We all burst into Moscow, Yoburg, St. Petersburg, Nizhny, Kazan, well, which cities are larger. The large mass of the population creates a large and diverse market for services and goods. But "megapolization" also creates many problems with housing, crime, the number of marginalized people and migrants.

          Everything is clearly set there. See the rebellion in Ferguson and the riot in Delaware. The federal police and the National Guard come (soon we will also have one) and very clearly suppress the protest. The crowd disperses, violent and leaders are detained, snipers shoot out especially desperate. The rest of the protesters simply turn into separate entities and no longer want to make big problems than those that already exist.

          I doubt that the "mattresses" will allow the emergence of any leaders capable of rallying significant masses for a democratic (through a referendum) or armed separation of states from the center. They will eliminate them at the level of "the birth of the thought of separation," and by itself, an uncontrollable popular revolt, will be suppressed by the center.
          Well, whoever, and the mattresses at home will not allow "democratic" races of "children".

    It is the gratuitous spread of "democracy", they believe, that makes the American nation "exceptional."

    For countries where the United States directs its "democracy" this gratuitousness comes out so sideways that it would be better if it did not exist at all. But for the Americans it comes at a pretty penny and not a small one. Fortunately, the printing press is at hand, otherwise all the "exclusivity" would have melted away long ago.

    "Give America without the USA!" - a good slogan could be.

    DIMA45R "Only who will take over the debts?" - I suspect that the US does not bother with the debts, because they are not going to pay them.

    Maybe I didn’t understand correctly, but do they also have subsidized regions? It would be interesting to see. But, in general, they will not reformat. Local authorities and the population will not agree. After all, the states, this is true, are practically independent states. So what's just a new civil war or an updated National Guard? wink

    The United States will not fall apart, do not hope. The United States is now more and more stratified not by "campuses" but by attitudes toward work: for those who work and want to work, and for those who are not going to work at all and want to live on benefits. And therefore, there are no fools there, as everyone understands that it is a strong federal government that allows those who work, who earn their living by hard work, and those who do not work and parasitize on social services, to exist in relative comfort. There will be no strong federal government and the redistribution of property will immediately begin, a "regional" mess with work, and even about the "social system" and benefits in general will have to be forgotten. Someone needs it there? Nope, the USA won't fall apart, don't hope.

      Of course they will not fall apart, considering that they milk the whole world, including the Russian Federation. By the way, it should be noted that our government has no strategic contradictions with mattresses, they meet perfectly at international get-togethers-forums, our "great" economists are awarded different titles, our country is absolutely tied to raccoon bills, the loot stolen here is again stored in a protective mattress, and in Miami our pseudo-pop "stars" live and rest. But this belligerent rhetoric is bullshit for the plebs.

      I personally understood from the article that the rejection of the division into states and the creation of federal districts, this is the strengthening of federal power. The article does not mention Russia, but we already have federal districts and are directly subordinate to the FV. And, no matter how they vote at the regional level, the federal district, which includes the number of them, can continue to exist calmly. It is difficult to imagine a situation when all (most) regions entering it will vote "for".
      In the United States, the division into states, just carries the seeds of separatism. Everything is fine so far so far so good in the economy There is almost no such law that can keep staff from secession.
      So, is this reasoning in the United States a signal that negative processes are taking place in the economy of "the most democratic country"? And, before it's too late, the creation of the Federal District, preventive protection against future separatist currents?

Its implementation will be followed by a huge recession of industry, general confusion in the literal sense. Bloody battles for jurisdiction.

    I see some Detroit subtext in this article. Each line is saturated with the problem of this city.
    Yes, an example of this city is the lower bar of the economic situation of the states, but as the author of this article writes, this problem is of the city itself, and not the district in which it is located.
    As for me, this card is not entirely relevant. Man is obsessed with the economy, completely ignoring the cultural characteristics of the regions.
    Firstly, each state is a practically separate state. The powers of local authorities are much broader and more significant than, for example, the federal districts of the Russian Federation.
    I will give an example on the state of Texas and its neighbor Albuquerque. This is an intensively developing region, and in industries which no one expected - alternative, green energy. The local population (Americans and legal migrants) are mostly ethnic Germans with a mentality inherent in this nation. They won’t let them split themselves (the staff) into pieces, but to unite at the economic level is possible, from my point of view.
    And the Indians are already fond of fussing about the problems of the United States, they are sitting in the same USA, they have dumped them out of the house, and they try to say that something needs to be changed there. Eat a burger with a veal cutlet and a stuffed mouth discuss problems)))

    if the states break up, you can safely begin a new era.
    The consequences will be the most unpredictable.
    But you should understand the main thing: the capital that is located there will move to another place. It is extremely unlikely that it will be evenly distributed throughout the world, as is in certain circles. It is unlikely that these individuals (groups of individuals) will want to leave him so easily. Not for this, the whole planet was plunged into chaos for several centuries.

    The disintegration of the States is possible only because of large-scale interracial clashes, supported by inter-diaspora contradictions. But the insurance policy so far is the most powerful economy, based on the dollar bubble, which in turn is guarded by military and special means. In this state, the States can balance as long as they want, as long as they have the opportunity to push their financial interests around the world with the help of the armed forces and special services. This is a model of the Khazar Kaganate. While the whole world is sitting tightly on the dollar, there will be a military force, which in fact contains the "subordinate" territories. This means that there will be an inflow of resources (from mineral to human), and the internal economic model will hold. And the latter stops all other internal contradictions. So no rapid decline of this "kaganate" is expected. And there is little sense in this. The owners of the States will always be able to "move" to other financial centers through them, paradoxically, to our Russia. And it will be worse than any Cold War.

    As long as Russia plays capitalism and democracy, it will be two steps behind the United States. By how Russia in this sense plays on a foreign field. While such a concept as democracy flows through the veins of Russia, fundamentally, fundamentally and geopolitically, success will not be achieved. This is not the way of Russia if you want.

    That's right!
    And you must not forget that you can only win by attacking! Sitting on the defensive, you won’t win.
    The rights of the Indians are infringed: they do not even have the right to sue on land issues. It needs to be changed. And constantly talk about it at every meeting of the UN.
    Nuclear landmines must be laid at the bottom of the ocean in the faults of the earth's crust and automatically detonated if an American ship crosses a 200 km zone off our coasts or an airplane approaches.
    The territory of Texas is annexed in violation of the law. 90% of local taxes are taxed. At the same time, Texas is the poorest state, etc.
