Conclusion: (1) Government Consumption Expense should be 3.91% more of gross domestic expense (from increased taxes, and related lower debt level & interest expense). (2) Business Consumption Expense (or investment) should be 13.02% more of gross domestic expense. (3) Individual Consumption Expense should be 20.46% less of gross domestic expense (from productivity improvements in business and government design). (4) Net Imported Consumption Expense is unnecessarily decreasing GDI by 3.53% (see note below to correct this). See >>>generational capitalistic competition
[1] From expense workpaper (above) per BEA.
[2] All expense accounts are cash-basis accounting, not accrual-basis.
[3] Ironically, such over-consumption results in a lower quality of life for all because of inefficiency and ineffectiveness by not making higher quality investments in business (or 13.02% more) and government (or 3.91% more)
[4] 1/2 of 1% too much military purchases/investment (reasonable anyway).
[5] Too little state/county investment/purchases. States need to get out of education business, replacing it with 8% mandatory private education vouchers while getting completely into the health business and pushing banking to the world level above the fed. (competitively).
[6] Our imports should equal our exports unless this net imported consumption expense is considered charity. If charity (which is reasonable), then it should be in the form of business investment in other nations while import/export purchases net to zero (ideally).
[7] There should be no discrepancy if data came directly from bank accounts (globally).
