Economic Research Campaign

With the income inequality and productivity statistics noted in the charts above, we are aggressively launching a grassroots-led economic research campaign to address this issue. Our mission and vision are as follows:


Economic Research Mission and Vision

Economic Research Mission

To conduct grassroots led economic research into how to apply the internet and other information technology to help the masses increase their workplace income at least 3 times over.


Long Term Vision

As a result of our economic research mission, over time, we will plant the economic seeds that will help future generations increase their workplace income at least 3 times over.




Whether we are doing scientific research, economic research, or otherwise, all research must start with a hypothesis or guess how to meet our objective. Then we conduct the research to field test, evaluate and validate the hypothesis. If the hypothesis doesn’t work out, we present a new hypothesis and start over.



Economic Research Hypothesis







The basic philosophy supporting the hypothesis is as follows: 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.. So, large scale worker-ownership is at the heart of this hypothesis.


For example, according to a Harvard Business School research paper, employee ownership leads to broad-based wealth. (Source: https://www.hbs.edu/faculty/Pages/item.aspx?num=61313):


  • "The median household would see its net wealth nearly double, from $121,760 to $230,076."


  • "The median wealth of families without a high school diploma would increase fourfold, from $20,780 to $83,955."


  • "The median wealth of black families would increase even more, from $24,100 to $106,271."


However, over the years, traditional employee ownership models, employee ownership advocacy organizations, worker-owned cooperative/advocacy organizations, and the government have failed to deliver worker-ownership solutions to the mainstream workplace on a large scale.


Therefore, the focus of this grassroots-led economic research campaign is to introduce, evaluate and field test new worker-ownership compensation models and create a feasible transitional path to large-scale, mass worker-ownership.


We can summerize the transitional path with the collaborate, crowdfund, build wealth and transform model below:


  • Collaborate: We form a large grassroots collaborative, innovate in the crowdfunding space and raise millions per month ... month after month after month;


  • Crowdfund: We use the crowdfunding dollars to fund worker-owned collaborations that are 100% owned by workers. These worker-owned collaborations operate online part-time, creating scenarios where individuals can work online part-time as co-owners within their field of expertise or area of professional interest. No investment is required. Individuals submit a resume, secure the position, and show up for work online part-time as co-owners;


  • Build Wealth: We encourage individuals to leverage these new online co-ownership opportunities to pay down bills, build-up savings and generally build a financial foundation leading away from paycheck to paycheck dependence. This way, individuals can comfortably leave the income limitations of a traditional job, collaborate with others, and form new, full-time, worker-owned enterprises with the potential to double or triple their workplace income. These full time enterprises can also access the crowdfunding pool for start-up capital;


  • Transform: At some point in the future, traditional companies and corporations will find it hard to find or keep qualified workers still willing to work for a mere hourly wage or salary. As such, employers will have to collaborate and wrap worker compensation around ownership-based incentives on a large scale. The long-term result: we dramatically improve the income and wealth-building ability of the masses and solve the income inequality problem on a large scale.


The collaborate, crowdfund, build wealth and transform model is the top-level hypothesis feeding the grassroots-led economic research. As with any hypothesis, we have to put it to the test in the real world to prove its viability. We adjust the hypothesis and continue moving forward if it's not viable. Let's a closer look at each one starting with collaborate.



Collaborate


Collaborate
We form a large grassroots collaborative, innovate in the crowdfunding space and raise millions per month ... month after month after month.


This collaboration and innovation grows and expands according to a four stage business plan:


  • Prelaunch: Early Introduction;


  • Stage I: Early Growth and Development;


  • Stage II: Building the Foundation;


  • Stage III: Main Operations;


  • Stage IV: Corporate Integration


We support each stage with a new and unique crowdfunding solution:


  • Prelaunch, Phase I: Early Network Development (Traditional Crowdfunding);


  • Prelaunch, Phase II: Empower the Crowd First Crowdfunding System (ECFCS) – startup;


  • Stage I: Empower the Crowd First Crowdfunding System (ECFCS) – main;


  • Stage II: Gradual Entrepreneurial Allocated Resource System (G.E.A.R.S);


  • Stage III/IV: The Virtual Income Machines (virtual wages, virtual dividends, virtual bonds, virtual stocks)


These new crowdfunding solutions and systems represent an evolution in crowdfunding as required to meet the demands of this economic research initiative because traditional crowdfunding, as we know it today, is not adequate. We release the details of each crowdfunding solution stage by stage as we grow and expand.



Crowdfund


Crowdfund
We use the crowdfunding dollars to fund worker-owned collaborations that are 100% owned by workers. These worker-owned collaborations operate online part-time, creating scenarios where individuals can work online part-time as co-owners within their field of expertise or area of professional interest. No investment is required. Individuals submit a resume, secure the position, and show up for work online part-time as co-owners


We refer to this as the FREE Online Co-Ownership Work Environment. Consider this:


  • People log into a new FREE system part time online;


  • Submit a resume to secure an online position as a part time co-owner in an online enterprise;


  • No investment required for co-ownership. People just submit a resume to secure a position as a co-owner;


  • Once people secure a position with the online enterprise, they simply show up for work online part time as a co-owner working within their field of expertise or area of professional interest. No selling required;


  • By working online part time as co-owners, people earn three (3) ownership-based compensation resources: Productivity Based Compensation, Ownership Equity and the Residual Income Equity Benefit


The Residual Income Equity Benefit is especially unique:


Regardless of whether a part time online worker works as an accountant, engineer, office manager, administrative assistant or secretary, this benefit pays part time workers a percentage of each sale made by the online enterprise he/she works for whether that sale is made over the internet, inside the office or over a retail counter. This benefit pays while individuals work for a given online enterprise and it can continue for some pre-determined and negotiated period even after people move on.


As you can see, anyone with an internet connection and willingness to learn can use this system to build wealth part time online. We build and launch this system according to the Prelaunch and Stage I business plans.



Build Wealth


Build Wealth
We encourage individuals to leverage these new online co-ownership opportunities to pay down bills, build-up savings and generally build a financial foundation leading away from paycheck to paycheck dependence. This way, individuals can comfortably leave the income limitations of a traditional job, collaborate with others, and form new, full-time, worker-owned enterprises with the potential to double or triple their workplace income. These full time enterprises can also access the crowdfunding pool for start-up capital


These new full time worker-owned enterprise will be organized according to the new Empowered Employee Compensation Model:





This model must also be field tested and validated in the real world as we advance operations and run the business plans stage by stage.



Transform


Transform
At some point in the future, traditional companies and corporations will find it hard to find or keep qualified workers still willing to work for a mere hourly wage or salary. As such, employers will have to collaborate and wrap worker compensation around ownership-based incentives on a large scale. The long-term result: we dramatically improve the income and wealth-building ability of the masses and solve the income inequality problem on a large scale


This transitional process is formally called Income Reengineering:


Income reengineering is formally defined as the fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in the income earning and wealth building ability of the masses


This visual tells the story:





As you can see, it depicts a large scale transition leading the workforce away from the old industrial age compensation of hourly wages and salaries to a ownership and wealth-building benefits associated with the Empowered Employee Compensation Model.
