Well of course. lol We expect to be attacked because we are the middle class, not because we are gay friendly rainbow people.

If you don't play ball we will send Lindsay Lohan to your function.

Stockton California, in the heart of the farmland of California, is poised to declare bankruptcy.

en.wikipedia.org...

You see we could throw them a lifeline. By adopting an investment plan such as has been outlined we would be able to put a hub there to serve their needs and ours.

They can't wait 20 years.

Yes we are the bourgeois middle class, the upper middle class, and we can afford Armani suits, because we can get them wholesale, we just don't have anywhere to wear them.

Thats us. Many of us wear white clinical coats to work, to an office, where they don't need a white clinical coat, unless they are worried about getting chalk on themselves.

Walmart has been good to us, the real estate boom has bought us all new cars, and new homes, which we cannot afford.
And in the case of Stockton, unemployment of 18+ percent.

So the logic and reason of this Internet trade initiative, should benefit the middle class directly with construction jobs and some other jobs upon completion.

Personally I have no idea where we might find a ready to go team of sharp looking people to drive our trucks and vans siR!

If you wanted to do this properly a marriage between a cloud based Internet and ground based trade hubs, then you might capitalize on that by virtual shopping. You have an underling, with a cam corder and a steady rig, and you can be an early bird, anywhere. And if it is close to a hub, then its just a drop ship.
And then the side shoot businesses are auctions on the fly.

Yes Internet tycoons with cam corder underlings, swoop into your marketplace, buy everything and are gone.
The goods then hits the hub, but is only one part of a shipment. 7 billion people in a world.
Who knows what they need. And when.

So if we create a trade backbone, we could increase Internet business incomes by at least 20% in the first year merely by meeting the demands of Christmas.
Something we have not been able to do successfully due to red tape.
And you know everything after Black Friday is profit.

Since capitalism is the only game in town, we must play on.

I will tell you what, if you want to invest a billion per trade hub, for data storage farms, since the land is there, and hope to see a return of 1.7 billion, for quote unquote expansion, well then we have to consider what you might need that 1.4 billion for? I mean 1.2 billion dollars is a lot of money.

And you know that we are thinking long term. Long term investment. So 90 billion dollars for a group of large companies to invest is not a lot of money. I would think you would want to do that just for having the opportunity to get into markets which might otherwise be closed. But what you do is your business, but the land would be suitable for a data storage farm and it has security.

As far as the countries between the Middle East and China, they often need us to send them some relief supplies when the weather turns against them, otherwise they are often making our consumer goods.

And growing food and looking for sea food of all varieties.

Seafood of all varieties can be a good crop and it can be grown. So by merely connecting markets we can help to feed the cloud.

Now the cloud works on seeds, and seeds keep the item alive. They keep a demand for smaller items even though people try not to stock items they cannot sell.

Then you have swarming, where suddenly people jump on a fad and they all want something.

Then you have the cloud itself where from a distance people are hovering around and products are in warehouses. Central warehousing is a tried and true concept.

So how the cloud system affects people in Indonesia, is that they can help to fill an order even if they are only filling a portion of that order. And in some cases or many cases, people do make deals for things before they are even produced at a set rate so they can guarantee a supply.

The way people do business and manufacturing will not change much just by making better shipping routes.
They will just be able to make more money.

So now I just mentioned the central warehousing concept. So then you might know that means put a warehouse in the center of activity so that it can be a hub.

Well what about where it is not done properly?

How the system essentially works with regards to food products is they are rated by inspectors as per quality.

And as long as you have good inspectors, then everyone knows what they are getting.

So its not political. And in the same way although goods are being shipped through and you have security, its not like trying to get through a checkpoint. Sellers do their leg work to determine what they can ship and what they can sell in their country as a starting point, and then they push the envelope and the envelope pushes back.

A group such as this has to be seen as a delivery service since if you have a whole bunch of people in some regions where they need some political voice, and here our hubs sit, as a representation of a global body.

Well we just say hey, we are just a delivery service, please get off the road.

The reason they are having an exercise is to firm up diplomatic relations, since the area is being turned into a trade zone. Which is causing a real estate speculation war in Syria.

Israel is expected to be a connector with America in the new trade route since America is its patron country.

Russia is Syria's patron country, Israel's neighbor.

It might seem unrelated but I did ask them to have a joint project and they have opted for war games, since the SCO wants to have war games off of Syria. Russia China etc.

So whats all the rest of the stuff I have been typing? Well we had a bunch of global conferences, and people have put forth their opinions on the situation as we move forward after the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and so now together we have to put the world back together.

So we have to fix the Silk Road. As a for instance. People like to be informed of our progress but also where we might be headed so they can plan their own economic future and see if it benefits them or not.

So my plan is simply not throw all the money into a big fight in the middle east but to create positive growth in the global economy and put people back to work. The IMF has a surplus that has been raised for economic recovery.

So very quickly then, the 1% and how it affects them. Well they are into big money and big markets and yes I work with them too, but for them to protect their investments globally, or their fortunes in the billions, there is high finance.

And I am not going to go into the complexities of money markets, but when you or i click on a website, it converts the currency into a currency of your choosing.

Now since I am a long term manager of global money markets, my interest is to advise countries like America of long term goals for their currency values. Things we economists concern ourselves with are such topics as the balance of trade. SO I am a slow careful plodder when it comes to monetary policy and so are most economists because stability in banking is important.

However as a consumer I can switch those values as I make a purchase and see if some other country might have some advantage over my purchasing power. Or the reverse of that. But governments are tied into monetary policy, and so you see we try to just isolate that system and use it as a tool of economics.

It is not a perfect system but it helps stabilize things a bit. When we do it properly it can help to offset huge job market swings.

Right now though after an expensive war, countries have to pay for loans and so they have a bit higher taxes and they try to use whatever they can to re-stabilize their economies, so we just expect things to fluctuate a bit.
That gives finance ministers a freer hand to deal with their own particular economic challenges.

I am not going to set some policy regarding currency trends here for that reason. It would interfere with the financial sector in some countries at a time when they are already busy.

The EU and the EURO may have less purchasing power, usually it seems like they do but the flip side of that is they have a different society. And they have higher taxes. And higher prices on some goods but it never seems to be such a gap that people cannot just get what they want anyways.

The nice thing about the Internet and Internet commerce is software calculates exchange rates. And that can help you and hinder you depending on how you use the system.
But currency values are a system of checks and balances and without a single currency which may or may not be a good idea, its a fact of life.

Philosophically though economic health depends on money as fiat money and as barter for goods.
en.wikipedia.org...

So to sell money for profit is not part of the system we are encouraging of course. Balance of trade even seems almost hopeless in todays world in some ways, Japanese cars Korean cars etc, but as a whole system, as long as goods flow and supply meets demand, you will not get stuck in the mud.
Forget that the system works on supply and demand, and you will think you need to interfere with quotas and unfair trade practices.

The magic bullet that the 1% would like to have is just to have a nice easy monetary policy revamp to equalize the system and then while you are at it, wipe out all that bad debt.

Well first we have to get people back to work since they have to eat, and then once they are working we can look at examining our global strategies for the balance of trade.

If you want a heads up, I will just remind you of the challenges the global economy faces as it grows and as emerging economies grow at a fast pace. So to remain competitive in such areas as manufacture, then face challenges and competition from areas where labor is plentiful and cheap.

So then you see we begin to talk about immigration policy, something Obama would like to discuss, and others, and then we have to include that with a larger plan, that includes the military and political boundaries and agreements.

That sets global policy. But thats on a different level but since the election is going on, candidates sure would love to be on the best possible side of that debate when it happens.
I am avoiding it partly for that reason. To maintain a global bent and perspective as opposed to a regional perspective where everyone still has their own issues to work on.

So rather than speak in innuendo the opportunities this plan should create are middle income jobs. But good jobs.
Many of them you might be able to work at home, the Internet is like that.
So we build large 5 billion dollar hub facilities for trade, that creates jobs in construction and worldwide in equipment sales to the network. 90 sites.
So then we have to staff those sites which are like warehousing and transportation jobs, that most military personnel could qualify for. Globally. So for those militaries where they are sending home their fighting force and if they need jobs, they might be gainfully employed there. Some of them.

That helps to alleviate unemployment. Then since they are trade network hubs, they support small to medium business. With a focus on on-line business and on-line sales in particular. So its open ended as to what jobs it can create as a trade network. As a delivery system it can create jobs world-wide.
If it connects even one large farm with a market, then it will pay the wages of all the farm workers by putting together buyers with sellers. So it create s jobs in agriculture.
It also has inspection facilities so it creates white collar jobs.

It also has customs agents and all the trappings of business and banking for more white collar jobs.
Then it puts investors in touch with companies looking for growth opportunities.

It has other far reaching effects, politically, as a model for international relations.
So at that level it is a tool for global economic management and world food supply management.

Work from home do I mean grow potatoes? You would be surprised how many people like to eat potatoes.

And how many potatoes a big company goes through. And whatever it takes, to give you the opportunity to make a living, well what you bring to market is completely up to you.

You find out what people need and want, and then you try to supply that demand.

You see movies, with guys collecting junk, selling it on Ebay, and that is the Internet and it is full of opportunities.

TV has shows as well that show people entrepreneurs, finding a place to put their shingle. What good does a bailout do, if you can't provide a job?

I'll answer a few more questions right here. Much of this is for the benefit of those countries not totally familiar with capitalism, 188 countries in our little club. And not all of them are experienced at capitalism the way it is managed globally.

So will prices go down globally? Don't try to predict the market unless you are right there on the floor, at the auctions. And then you will only know what is going on within a certain span of time. Since global weather can itself affect commodity prices.
But when people think about global trade in commodities they generally think of the Chicago Board of Trade in the West, as for other centers, you see the chart...
en.wikipedia.org...

What we do to create a backbone hub for trade and shipping is we help goods move across borders by applying isolation to our trade traffic to reduce red tape. That means more profit, it doesn't always mean lower prices.
