Right it’s time to return to the main reasons I started this blog.
And that is:
TO CREATE A WEB SITE THAT WILL ATTRACT THE WORLDS SMART PHONE USERS INTO A WORLD MOVEMENT THAT WILL USE THE COMBINED POWER OF THEIR PHONES TO BRING ABOUT CHANGE. ( see previous posts)
We know and most of us acknowledge the problems of the world.
The main problem is the distribution of Wealth i.e. POVERTY
It is my contention that no matter what the world does in its efforts to eradicate POVERTY – nothing will work. Why?
The geography, the resources distribution, the power struggles, lack of education, the digital age creating technological deserts, the lack of genuine will, consumerism, population growth, to mention a few reason
There is only one way: To tap into the very reason why it exists in the first place.
There is no way of archiving this other than placing a Poverty commission on all trading on all the Stock Exchanges of the WORLD THAT EXITS NOW AND IT THE FUTURE. To day there are approximately 103 Exchanges world wide. On very trade no matter what it is – stocks, bonds, derivatives, forex&inter bank, cash&spots, futures, equities, gilts, commodities, hedge-funds. You name it. If it can be traded for profit it contributes to eradicating poverty. Poverty is man-made with millions of people trapped in its prison. It can be overcome.
Greed will not even notice it. The income generated will be in the trillions.
No more : Donate just two pounds a month to save a child, a snow leopard, a whale, a donkey.
Rather : Enough funds – to stop conflicts, to stop exploitation ,to stop terrorism, to stop climate change, to live on one planet with dignity and respect for each other, to change the world. CASE CLOSED.
