Economic Research Mission and Vision
Economic Research MissionTo conduct grassroots lead economic research into how to apply the internet and other information technology to increase the income production and wealth-building ability of the masses at least three-fold.
Long Term VisionAs a result of our mission, future generations will enjoy at least a 3-fold increase in their income production and wealth building ability when compared to today.
This is a grassroots lead economic research campaign. This means we bring individuals from all walks of life and professional disciplines to run the campaign WITHOUT relying on companies, corporations, financial institutions, or the government. Of course, we encourage the participation of any organization, but, again, the campaign is lead by the grassroots sector.
Whether it's economic, scientific, or otherwise, all research must start with a hypothesis or a guess as to how to accomplish the mission and vision. You can get a feel for the top-level hypotheses feeding our research by reviewing Level One, Level Two, and Level Three hypotheses below..
Level One HypothesisThe bottom line focus of this research is asking the question: how to apply the internet and other information technology to increase the income production and wealth-building ability of the masses at least three-fold. The foundational hypothesis or line of thinking to address this question starts with what we refer to as Income Reengineering Principle Part 1:
Income Reengineering Principle Part 1 Information technology can only translate into individual financial empowerment and wealth for the masses when the masses learn how to use new information technology and connective tools to interact and collaborate professionally with each other outside of the bounds of traditional employment and in ways that is financially empowering to all participating individuals.
The phrase: interact and collaborate professionally with each other outside of the bounds of traditional employment and in ways that is financially empowering to all participating individuals ….is formally referred to as Peer-to-Peer Collaboration and Co-creation:
So, in essence, we bring a massive network of grassroots individuals, career professionals, home/small business owners, and aspiring entrepreneurs together online to form a sizeable peer-to-peer production network..
- Peer to peer means people working together without any corporate or government control;
- A good example is open-source software developers where software engineers work together over the internet to produce software independent of any corporate control. Crowdfunding is also a peer-to-peer production phenomenon.
Now, relative to prooving or disproving this hypothesis, we run the following operation:
Launch a peer-to-peer production campaign to motivate, nurture, crowdfund, launch, market, and spin-off thousands of new business enterprises that can operate part-time online. Each enterprise will be 100% owned by career professionals who work part-time for these enterprises. This way, people who usually earn wages and salaries can show for work online part-time, earn immediate income, and build long term wealth as co-owners of these new online enterprises.
As you can see, this is an aggressive wealth-building production model designed to help the average individual build wealth simply by logging on to the internet part-time.
In summary, this is our first peer-to-peer business model or hypothesis we must field test, evaluate and validate as a feasible business model. This serves as the foundation to the follow-on hypothesis and business models noted below.
Level Two HypothesisFor the Level Two Hypothesis, we usher in Income Reengineering Principle Part 2:
Income Reengineering Principle Part 2 Over time, the financial empowerment created under Income Reengineering Principle Part 1 will find its way into the mainstream workplace as financially empowered employees are willing and financially able to forgo hourly wages and salaries in lieu of more lucrative productivity and ownership-based compensation in collaboration with employers. This way people effectively run their own business while on the job.
This principle or hypothesis is self-explanatory. It's a natural economic transition as people look to duplicate the wealth created online part-time in a full-time capacity. Consequently, we nurture and crowdfund thousands of new worker-owned enterprises that are 100% owned by workers. Of course, we will field test, evaluate, and validate this principle as a natural function of our economic research.
Level Three HypothesisTo understand this hypothesis, let's assume that millions upon millions of people use the business systems noted above to build wealth online part-time and then leave traditional jobs to work full time for one of these new worker-owned enterprises. When this happens on a large enough scale, traditional companies and corporations large and small will find it hard to find and keep qualified workers still willing to work for a mere hourly wage or salary. This scenario will set the stage for the Income Reengineering Vision as defined below:
Income Reengineering Vision Eliminate paycheck to paycheck dependence on a large scale and shift employee thinking and focus away from just earning a paycheck to running their own business under the roof of employers with the support of employers. The resulting workplace compensation model is called the Empowered Employee Compensation Model (EECM). The EECM replaces hourly wages and salaries with ten (10) new income resources and benefits with the potential to usher in a 3-fold increase in the aggregate wealth building capacity for both employees and employers
The resulting workplace compensation model is called the Empowered Employee Compensation Model:
This workplace compensation model reflects the ultimate long term objective of our Operational Mission and Long Term Vision of delivering a 3-fold increase in the income earning and wealth building capacity of the masses. Think about it. Given that most people make their living in the workplace, what better way to improve the income and wealth building ability of the masses for the long term than to create a workplace where people effectively run their own business under the roof of their employer with the support of their employer?. This is what the Empowered Employee Compensation Model (EECM) represents.
Now, obviously, all we can do is teach, research, validate the feasibility and plant the early economic seeds associated of this model and future generations will reap the harvest, which is the focus of our Long Term Vision. The beauty of research is that, if for whatever reason, this hypothesis doesn't work out, we can create a new hypothesis and start over.
SummaryAgain, this is economic research where, as a large grassroots lead peer to peer network, we must put these concepts and business models to the test in the real world to carry out the Operational Mission and the Long Term Vision.
