Thom Hartmann: We need a National Permanent Fund (USA)

Why can't we be more like Sarah Palin? - YouTube

+The Thom Hartmann Programme

Thom Hartmann "is an American radio host, author, former psychotherapist and entrepreneur, and progressive political commentator."

In this video, Thom Hartmann argues for citizen-ownership  of the commons (commonly own wealth of the country) and payment of citizen-ownership income. He says just the drilling rights in the Gulf of Mexico is enough to provide $30 to every American. If all the commons incomes are added up, that is a very substantial cash for every American.

Shareholders in companies get their dividends. Citizens, as shareholders of the commons, should get their dividends too.

Alaska Permanent Fund is only for residents of Alaska. Alaskans get $1000 to $2000 every year over the last 3 decades.

"We need a National Permanent Fund" for the whole of USA.
