Closely informed by Jared Diamond's 2019 book, Upheaval, four American Crises and four World Crises are considered. Example crises solving suggestions (among many others from Diamond) are that: THE USA display the political compromises necessary for reflective problem-solving instead of engaging in self-pity and blaming others; and, THE WORLD learn from history and from science, and continue to develop world and regional and other institutions with world problems in mind. Closely informed by Charles Tandy and by Andrew Yang's 2018 book, The War on Normal People, three additional crises solving suggestions are offered: time travel (or multi-temporal infrastructure); blue origin (or extra-terrestrial infrastructure); and, new economics (or human-centered infrastructure).
