His main beliefs can be summed up as follow:

  • A country trade balance should be in favor of exports, to encourage retention of capital.
  • The national currency should be loosely regulated, by using a managed floating rate.
  • Developing the average quality level of companies is the prime concern of economists because this means that more wellness is lost, pushing demand up, overall production drops because less goods are created, the GDP grows and finally because it makes low quality level companies more profitable.
  • The tax code should be determined entirely by the current need of the economy, such as curbing or promoting inflation, adapting to demographic changes or juggling employment issues.
  • On the social side, John's belief is that education is the most crucial task a government is bestowed, just second to diplomacy.
