3 Customers or 150 Million?

April 3, 2018

Fact, Three People have more wealth than the poorest 150 million people in the US.

That is clearly a poverty versus wealth issue. But let’s take a moment to look at it strictly from a business point of view, just for discussion.

Businesses, which do you prefer having 150 million customers or trying to get all your business from 3 people?

Do you think those 3 spend more time shopping than the 150 million do?

Which group buys more of your product now – the 3 rich, or the 150 million?

Would you profit more if the 150 million had more money to shop with?

Maybe if we went with a build up economy instead of a trickle down, there would be more customers for virtually all the businesses in the US.

Maybe it’s time for businesses to see that the greed of the few takes away most of your customers too.

People vs. Corporations

March 2, 2018

The paradigm is shifting from
CONSERVATIVE versus LIBERAL to CORPORATIONS versus PEOPLE.

Day after day it’s becoming more and more clear. Both are fighting for control of the government. Corporations usually win.

Look at this list of problems facing the nation. These major problems all have something in common. PEOPLE vs. CORPORATIONS.

1. NET NEUTRALITY
People want it. Major media corporations don’t.

2. OPIOID CRISIS
People addicted. Drug corporations making big profits.

3. BANKING CRISIS
People lost their homes. Banks got 700 billion dollar bail out.

4. MASS SHOOTINGS.
People want reasonable gun laws. NRA / Gun Lobby opposes change.

5. F – 35 FIGHTER JET ( Cost 1 trillion dollars)
Capital enough to end poverty in the country. Weapons Manufacturers.

6. TAX REFORM.
People got little reform. Corporations got massive tax cuts.

7. MUSIC
Music costs more, sounds worse. 3 CEOS control 80%.

The list is just started. What would you add to it?

We have three political parties, the Republican Corporate Party, the Democratic Corporate Party, and all the rest of us that don’t have lobbyists.

Want to end poverty in the US without spending a penny? Here’s how it might happen.

Good news! Your state has been selected in the regional lottery.
Your state will receive 50 billion dollars in a Community Bank Account. That money is never spent but it helps the state in two ways.

1. The INTEREST goes to ending poverty in the state by empowering the poorest areas to improve.
2. The capital is available for LOANS to businesses in that state. This may be further used to end poverty by being limited to small business and personal loans only.

What’s next?
The state will make a list of the main centers of poverty in the state. They will:

1. Determine a level of annual income or less, that defines poverty. 2. Determine the number of communities in poverty, and make a list.
Most likely there will be entire rural counties, and certain neighborhoods in larger towns and cities.
3. Take the first month’s interest on the 50 billion, and give it to the first name on the list. Next month the second name, etc. When you finish with the first round. Start again at the top, and continue forever!
4. The community (rural county, or city neighborhood), takes the interest they receive and spends it to improve the entire community.
5. Before the community gets the money, they should make a plan on how they will spend the money, how they will budget the money they get. This record, plus any receipts for expenditures, can be reviewed by a state committee, to check to see that the money was well spent. If it was not, the state can stop the program for that community. So there are checks and balances.
6. When the poverty line improves across the poorest areas, more communities may be added to the list.

Want to go to Mars?

January 20, 2018

Want to go to Mars?

Yes, everyone would be excited about a manned mission to Mars,
Yes, I love science, and have even written a huge sci-fi novel* that is a history of the future that features colonies on Mars. Yes, that would be great but first ….

The science community has to find some solutions for problems here on Earth. Solutions that end poverty,get clean food and water in abundance for all, end major diseases, devise low cost power, and combat global warming,

THEN, everyone will be on your side and behind you. Then everyone will cheer when the first rocket sails for the Red Planet, lands and returns.

First things first. Then go with the world’s blessings!
