"Tales with MORAL"
Somewhere in this world, an economical crisis has been plaguing that place for a long time and now everyone has debts and lives on credit.
Fortunately, a millionaire wrapped up with money arrives suddenly to this small town and enters to the only small hotel in the place, asks for a room, puts a 100 dollar bill on the receptionist's table and goes to see the rooms.
Immediately, the hotel manager grabs the $100 note and runs off to pay his debts with:
The butcher then takes the $100 note and runs off to pay his debt with:
The pig farmer.
At this very moment the pig farmer runs out to pay what he owes to:
The mill animal food supplier.
The owner of the mill takes the $100 note on the flight and runs to settle his debt with:
Maria the prostitute, since he has not paid for her services in a long time. In times of crisis, even she also offers credit services...
The prostitute with the $100 note in hand now leaves heading to:
The small hotel in the town, where she had brought many of her clients the last few times and had not yet paid her debts and then proudly handed the 100 dollar bill:
¡To the manager & owner of the hotel!
At this moment the millionaire who has just taken a look at the rooms comes down, says he is not convinced by any of them, takes his 100 dollar bill and leaves.
"Nobody has earned a penny, but now the whole city lives without debts and looks the new future now with more confidence!!"
Let's consume more in small shops and local markets.
- ¡Stop banalities!
- Consume what your friends and your country produce!!
- If your friend has a microenterprise, buy from him!
- If your friend sells clothes, buy from him!
- If your friend sells shoes, buy from him!
- If your friend sells Pastry, buy from her!
- If your friend does nails, go there & take your mom with you!
- If your friend is an accountant, go with him and get his advice!
- If my friend owned a restaurant... What do you think I'd do?
Obviously I would eat there!
- If a friend of mine had a bakery, over there I would go!
- If a friend of mine had a shop, in that one I would buy!
The next time you enter into a large bakery, just remember your friends, your sister, your cousin, your uncle and anyone else in your very own local community who sells pies, and make patty, muffins, puff pastries & cakes which are also delicious.
At the end of the day, most of the money that is raised and collected by large corporations; ¿What do you think they usually do with this money? All that money flies away and leaves the country! But when you buy from a local entrepreneur, a promising startup, a small medium business of your friends, you help them, we all win and contribute to our economy.
Let's support entrepreneurship...
Let's support local consumption....
Let's support national production.
Have you heard before about Oneida in New York, Icaria in Texas, Twin Oaks in Virginia, O+ in Kingston New York with their own Hudson Valley Current digital currency among many other utopian communities out there across the globe?
By instance, the community of Los Horcones in Hermosillo Mexico or Marinaleda in Seville Andalusia and also Walden 7 with its apartments building complex in Sant Just Desvern, Catalonia, Spain. This last one just for some Artsy inspiration. Among many others throughout Europe?
"The Lean Economy"
"We will have to prepare for an economy with more "gigs" and fewer "good" jobs"
Shifting our mindset from a taut, tense, and 'competitive' economy to one that intentionally builds in “slack”.
With the seeming inefficiencies of a slack system, one can have greater choices in how to use one’s time, rather than be locked into a market system that revolves around money and thus the maximum earning of money.
One of the invisible downsides to the modern economy is the huge layer of intermediary structures – roads, electrical grids, landfills, plus the plenty and diverse administrative systems that are needed to keep “the economy” going and thereby produce the countless things we want or need.
Aphorisms, Spoonerisms, Wellerisms and other isms.
In a current world that is changing at an astounding rate with many new technological innovations and improvements in automation of everything.
With leaps and bounds in the fields of Robotics, AI, IoT, Deep Learning, Big Data, Energy Storage, FinTech, Blockchain, Cryptocurrency, 5G, self-driving cars and trucks, online shopping and instant delivery of goodies by drones, besides of many revolutionary advances in DNA Sequencing and a long long etcetera.
Where the biggest Corporations & Banks jointly with many big enterprises and companies are now desperately looking to change faster our current political, economical and societal structures in their favor. Trying to make their productivity tasks & huge ROI easier, faster and cheaper.
Whether it be at the moment by reducing costs outsourcing labor abroad all over the world in alternative markets where they can way easier dictate smaller wages, prices and how we should live as a society.
And in the measure that no one can notice their greedy globalization game in such hidden and furtive way that they can still continue extracting even more wealth from the already impoverished working population as long as they don't become disgruntled or they wake up one day and realize that the mass of services, products and finances they provide all need to be spread and decentralised asap.
All of them way before they can automate everything until the point to actually be able to trim a little more off the wage bill. And in consequence also quickly render employees and all human labor finally disposable and worthless in the process.
We certainly should act accordingly as soon as possible with all the means at our reach and then try to diligently counter their plans in a due effort to minimize the pernicious effects of these upcoming highly egoistic biznis practices of 'inhuman' labor usurpation in a very near future.
