DeSantis Releases 10-Point Economic Policy

The Platform Has Been Dubbed The 'Declaration Of Economic Independence'

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has released a Declaration of Economic Independence detailing policy he would support in the upcoming Presidential Election.

The platform features 10 points of policy DeSantis has similarly pursued during his tenure as governor in the Sunshine State.

Policies include distancing the American economy from China by restoring economic sovereignty along with achieving 3 percent economic growth through incentivizing investment along with “eliminating bureaucracy and red tape” and keeping taxes low.

The platform also advocates for “unleashing American energy independence.”

DeSantis will also seek the end of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards along with “political engineering by large investors,” according to the 10-point platform.

The plan also advocates for “restoring merit and respect for the individual” in regards to economic advancement, along with educational reforms and “lowering barriers to entry” for working class Americans.

The Florida governor emphasized creating a “fair labor market” by securing and enforcing border control laws.

DeSantis also aims to “reign in” the Federal Reserve along with opposing bailouts and holding “bad economic actors” responsible. The Florida governor will also fight “reckless and wasteful” federal spending.

Last week in an exclusive interview with Just the News, the Florida Governor detailed his view on the Federal Reserve, referring to it as a “total disaster.”

“The Fed should simply maintain price stability,” he said. ”They are not an economic central planner. They need to stop trying to micromanage the economy.”

“So you had the financial crisis. And then the Fed does this quantitative easing. And that was supposed to be kind of like an aberration, a crisis thing. Then that became the norm,” he continued. “The problem with quantitative easing is the people that have assets, they inflate their assets. So they do very well, people at the top.”

DeSantis noted “average people” have “suboptimal economic results” from quantitative easing.

“I think it’s been a total disaster,” he added, commenting on the Federal Reserve pumping more cash into the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic. “You knew there was gonna be inflation.”

“Meanwhile this whole time the Fed’s saying inflation is transitory,” he continued, noting increased rate hikes. “The rates are the highest they’ve been in over 20 years. The Fed has totally mismanaged this.”

“We are gonna rein in the Fed,” he concluded, adding he was in favor of auditing the Federal Reserve.

DeSantis also declared he would end federal central bank digital currency (CBDC), emphasizing that “cash is king” and physical currency provides economic independence.

“On day one, central bank digital currency dies in this country,” the Florida governor declared, adding he believed it was a “huge” threat to freedom and privacy. “They want to get rid of cash … get rid of cryptocurrency. And they want this Fed-monitored central bank digital currency.”

Governor DeSantis claimed proponents of CBDC, including World Economic Forum (WEF) leaders, are “excited.”

“They’ve said it publicly … that will allow them to block what they consider to be undesirable purchases like too much fuel … maybe you’re buying too much ammunition,” he said, suggesting WEF wanted to implement a social credit system along with central bank digital currencies.

“We cannot go down that road.”
