Work Ethic: People Versus Corporations

WORK ETHIC: PEOPLE VS CORPORATIONS
A Highly Worrisome Mindset And Trend Amongst The U.S.Voting Population
                                                  Published In The GLOBAL FUTURIST BLOG
               Published In DOUGLAS E. CASTLE – OBSERVATIONS, THOUGHTS AND COMMENTARY 

I received this item in a newsletter from MomsRising.Org just two days ago, and I found it understandable, but somehow disheartening and consistent with my intuitive feelings about the declining US work ethic. While I support the notion of paid sick days (for employees who have at least demonstrated certain other attributes at work than showing up on time on “well days”), it seems that the high prioritization and politicization of this issue well over other issues having to do with economic stimuli, jobs creation, productivity incentives, entrepreneurship credits and other positive pro-growth issues, all of which are critical to sustain the American Dream – or to attempt to bring it back into being – seems to be saying something about the mindset of the voters and perhaps the majority of the American populace:
-- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

“It's time for a celebratory fist bump (more later on why a fist bump, specifically)!
Paid sick days WON BIG at the polls on Election Day — with nearly 1 million more workers gaining access to earned sick days in Massachusetts, Oakland, CA, and Trenton and Montclair, NJ, making it crystal clear that American voters overwhelmingly support paid sick days.

In fact, a whopping 81% of voters, across political parties, gender, and race, say it's important for lawmakers to consider paid sick days laws because they help keep working families economically secure. Woot! Time for another fist bump!

Now, it’s time for the next step: Taking paid sick days to Congress. This is a boost for families, our economy, and... our leaders. Why? Let’s be honest, Congress could use some popularity points right now (a poll found that lice are more popular than Congress!!!).

Since Election Day told us that paid sick days are VERY popular, and Congress needs a popularity boost, now is the perfect time to tell Congress about these popular paid sick days victories — and also tell them that we expect them to keep up the momentum for earned sick days while they’re back in session.

It’s a win-win!

Urge your members of Congress to prioritize paid sick days across the nation...” 

-- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Here's is what I have concluded and am very concerned about as an economist, businessperson and entrepreneur:

Item 1: The emphasis is on employers and/or the government to make conditions easier for employees,
to care for them, to be responsible for them and to guarantee them careers irrespective of performance, loyalty, longevity, innovation or attitude.

Item 2: Why aren't there more incentives for companies which create permanent jobs, and for employees who are superior performers, loyal, senior in longevity, innovative and demonstrating encouraging attitudes?

Item 3: Why are there less incentives and aid for solopreneurs, start-ups and small business in the form of tax benefits, grants and the like? The voting (there's no escaping politics, I know...) public doesn't want to assume responsibility for its work product – it wants to be coddled by corporations with a government to police this.

Item 4: Why isn't more focus being placed on the administration of employee pension and special tax- deferred pension and profit-sharing plans? Why is it required that companies (whom I tend to favor in many arguments – even if it makes me the devil's advocate at parties) only keep several years of anticipated pension payments actually funded [in accordance with current regulations], instead of fully keeping those those plans fully funded with the accumulated amount that they are going to owe? The average employee thinks that his or her fully-vested retirement plan and pay are fully-funded and keep in a segregated corporate account!

This is truly a reasonable expectation, and the regulations should provide for full funding of retirement amounts which will be due for all employees, with actuarial adjustments for employee post-retirement longevity? Why should a company be permitted to go bankrupt and escape its obligations to 20- and 25-year veteran employees? That is beyond just unfair. It is a death knell for good employees if their corporate employers want to go bankrupt as a matter of convenient escape from the rigors of responsible management and fair payment obligations! This is one of the only matters where I clearly favor the employee's well-being and expectations over those of Corporate America.

Item 5: Both the government and the major corporations have helped to destroy the U.S. Work Ethic by their unholy alliance in generally disregarding simple Human decency and compassion and displacing these intangible but valuable things with incentives for fiscal irresponsibility and fattening the wallets of the seniormost level of mismanagement (and members of their boards of directors with bonuses stolen from the employees and the taxpayers)... TARP anyone?

Proposed Direction And Course Correction: Corporations and employees must be educated to the advantages of a long-term alliance between them instead of a series of short-term skirmishes on an issue-by-issue provocation basis.

Global Balance Of Economic Power - Wealth Class Trends

THE DISTRIBUTION OF GLOBAL WEALTH
As Published By Douglas E. Castle In The Internationalist Page Blog
As Published By Douglas E. Castle In The Global Futurist Blog

0.7% Of The World's Population Controls 41% Of Its Wealth.

Financial inequality is steadily rising alongside global wealth, which reached a grand total of $263 trillion in 2014. According to Crédit Suisse, people with a net worth of over $1 million represent just 0.7 percent of the planet's population, but they control 41 percent of its wealth. 69 percent of the world's population have a net worth of under $10,000 - they account for a mere 3 percent of global wealth. 

Meanwhile, 23 percent fall into the $10,000-$100,000 bracket and they control 14 percent of worldwide wealth. In order to be counted among the wealthiest half of the world's citizens, a person requires a net worth of $3,650. The above chart [courtesy of Statista] shows how the world's wealth is shared amongst its population, by income group.  

More frighteningly, and not shown directly by the above graph, the larger picture is that approximately 1.4% Of The World's Population Controls 81% Of Its Wealth

Most frighteningly is that economists estimate that approximately 2.3% Of The World's Population Controls In Excess Of 90% Of The World's Total Wealth

As the trend toward financial inequality continues to grow at an accelerating rate (since with each major capital markets downturn, the poor lose more wealth and the rich actually gain wealth [through purchasing available “bargains”] which is generally realized as soon as the ensuing economic recovery invariably begins) an ever-nearer class war becomes more and more of a threat.

 Some Implications And Takeaways:  

1) The market for luxury items is constantly increasing and is becoming more economically resilient;

 2) The poorer segment of the global population is sustaining itself on either credit or government aid – many simply live in constantly more widespread poverty;    

3) If you're in the most fortunate 2.3% of the global population, fortify your possessions and dwellings, because a class war, where the peasants storm the castles, is heading your way in the event that this enormous inequality shifts to the point where the poor start to blame the rich for their plight more than they currently blame their respective governments and the politicians which comprise them. 

If our course is not corrected, this could happen within the next five to ten years!   Douglas E. Castle

The Imminent Global Business Disaster

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .







The Imminent Global Business Disaster
The Next Major Worldwide Economic Crash Affecting Consumers And Businesses Alike
Anticipated Crisis To Occur During The Period Between 2015 And 2016

There is a high likelihood of a global business disaster on the near-term horizon, i.e., within a one- to two-year time frame. This disaster is most probably going to be felt the hardest in the United States, where it will have the potential to decimate all but a few government-entrenched and privileged businesses, and to sink all dollar-denominated investment portfolios, regardless of traditional investment diversification. This course to calamity is anticipated to be caused by a confluence (a simultaneous occurrence) of several major economic and banking trends and specific events. The collapse is anticipated by The Global Futurist and other predictive writers and organizations to last for a period of ten to twelve years once it has hit. I refer to the coming threat as a “business” disaster, because business is the offspring of economics that allows for supply and demand to function, and for the existence of commerce and consumerism...

Factors Involved In The Collapse:
=> Further unification and strengthening of the Eurozone Central Banking System – Europe's building of its own independent multinational bank and banking system with a greater circulation and acceptance of the Euro, and with a greater utilization of Euro-denominated financial instruments and commodities purchases, both B2B (business to business) and B2C (business to consumer) throughout the world;

=> A precipitous decline in U.S. Domestic stock prices as predicted by the trending of the economic wave known as “Dow Megaphone Wave” which has accurately predicted the timing and amplitude of every major stock market collapse and resurrection over the past twenty years;

=> The growing acceptance of cybercurrency (such as Bitcoin) as a medium of exchange and a store of value in lieu of investment in and utilization of bank-backed sovereign currencies;

=> The increasing national indebtedness and decline in real savings in the United States – an economy built on debt and artificially propped up by government employment creation and expenditures – especially those expenditures which are fiscally re-cycled back into increasing the size of government, all to the unfortunate displacement of the productive private sector;

=> A declaration by the Bank For International Settlements (the “BIS,” one of the least known and understood as well as secretive and powerful international policy-making bodies in the world) that the United States Dollar is no longer the preferred reserve currency to be held by banks worldwide, leading the dollar into its steepest decline in recorded history.

The above trends and events could lead to the most severe business, economic and consumer crisis since the debacle of 2008, when the world's leading financial institutions demonstrated historically unprecedented irresponsibility, corruption and a total lack of contrition. The systemic cracks in the world's underlying economic foundation have not been repaired, and the business and consumer environments have not gained significant strength in their areas of long-embedded habitual weakness such as an increased ratio of borrowing to spending and an increased ratio of borrowing to saving. Hyper-leverage leads to disastrous results for consumers and businesses – this is, or should be, a matter of common sense.

Defense Strategies Before The Event Of A Collapse:

=> Basic survivalism – the stockpiling of non-perishable foods, potable water, fuel and the like – it is not ridiculous to keep an eye on what the “Doomsday Preppers” are doing and to follow their example, but not to a ridiculous extreme. Don't have a false sense of confidence because the government and mainstream media would have you believe that things have gotten better – this latter notion is utterly ridiculous. You cannot make a nation truly prosperous by perpetuating bad fiscal hygiene. You cannot perpetually repay debt with more borrowing and expect profit to result. Losses can only truly be reversed by significant ongoing increases in productivity.

=> Diversify your savings and investment holdings geographically and in terms of currency denomination – don't concentrate your dollars in any one industry, technology, country or currency; be an Internationalist. Consider investing balances in cybercurrencies. Cybercurrencies will only be bolstered by devaluation of bank-supported sovereign currencies. Since cybercurrencies are a P2P (“peer-to-peer”) variant on the theme of barter, i.e., where no banks are involved and interest charged, they are becoming a serious contender for the conduct of business and commerce, which is currently infested and controlled by banks in virtually every aspect. Incidentally, when I refer to cybercurrencies, I am using that term synonymously with electronic currencies and virtual currencies, for they all refer to the same concept;

=> Borrow up to your maximum in U.S. Dollars in order to purchase non-U.S. Dollar-denominated investments in cybercurrency, foreign currencies and tangible (but necessary and functional) assets currently at distressed prices, such as residential real estate in densely-populated areas and actual, physical commodities that have some practical use. Avoid obsessing over precious metals and exchange-traded commodities which become non-necessities in a survivalist worldscape; their values will reflect reality and not speculation in the trough of a long, deep depression. In terms of tangible commodities of true value, think in terms of such useful physical items as power generators, meal rations, medical supplies, solar panels, water purifiers, potassium iodide and the like. Items of this sort can be sold or traded at a substantial premium in a worst-case economic scenario. This is truly thinking “outside of the box” and “inside of the shelter”;

=> Insure your valuables to the greatest and most practical extent possible for damage and theft. Similarly hedge your investments and insure your portfolio, and be certain that you have both business interruption insurance and personal loss of income insurance if you are conventionally employed;

Don't be a lender expecting to be paid back in U.S. Dollars. It would be wiser to be a borrower while rates are artificially low, and to be paid back in cybercurrency or tangibles of true and lasting value. And be certain to have a disaster recovery strategy in place for your business as well as for your personal life. Private companies which deal in survivalism are making ever-increasing profits as a function of the populace’s suspicious that the economic outlook in the coming years may be less than rosy — and these businesses will be reaping fortunes in the trying times imminently ahead. If you can dedicate or re-purpose a portion or segment of your business to survivalism, this might provide a wise hedge against an uncertain and dangerous future.

Think about it and consider acting upon it sooner rather than later.

Print Media Displaced By E-Books -- Douglas E. Castle

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .





 


E-BOOKS TO SURPASS PRINT MEDIA
Changes in Consumer Behavior, And Industries Affected


Over the next five years, the fate of e-books is set to vary significantly by country. In Germany, for example, it will remain a niche player for the foreseeable future, according to a PriceWaterhouseCoopers study published by the Economist.

Today in the United States, the e-book industry is worth about $5.7 billion while print is worth approximately $10 billion. By 2018, print and e-books will be worth $7.9 and $8.7 billion respectively in the United States.

The trend is clear: e-books and the sites that provide for the sale and/or downloading of e-books are going to increase in market prominence and profitability while print media, and the suppliers to (and of) print media, are going to be adversely affected. Some of these supply-chain variables include printing, paper, storage, publishing companies and logistics providers.

Plan your future accordingly.

International Business Update: Wiring Funds And Banking

International Business Update: Wiring Funds And Banking

If you are either conducting business internationally or are contemplating conducting any type of business which may require international electronic or SWIFT transfers of funds (i.e., funds transfers inbound or outbound via wire) the current terrorist threat levels are already creating additional diligence and reporting on the part of depositary institutions, as certainly as it will now take you longer to go through airport security clearance protocol on any international flight due to the prevalance of consciousness relating to possible terrorist or Ebola virus-related problems throughout the world.

Following are several suggestions to provide your banker, or your recipient's banker – as well as the host of regulators to which they now answerable – with additional comfort regarding the nature of your transactions, business and funds. 

While you may see these steps as “overkill,” rest assured that they are not, and that they will reduce the likelihood of any holds or restrictions on your funds. Again, these are not legally mandated, but are just an extra step of precaution:
  1. Do not, under any circumstances, accept any inbound transfers, or make any outbound transfers by wire (or by check, for that matter) to businesses or other organizations located in any of the prohibited jurisdictions on US Ex-Im Bank's most recent publication of the Country Limitation Schedule (a link to which which follows for the purposes of example) or which happens to be on the Department Of The Secretary Of State's “Watchlist” (a link to which follows for the purposes of example) ;
  2. Pre-advise your bank, via email to your account officer or manager, if you are anticipating any transfer into or out of your account in any amount in excess of $1.0 million US;
  3. Have any transferor execute the following undertaking [or one in a format suggested by your legal counsel] in a signed writing and either fax or email the same to your banker (in the form of a PDF attachment) with your own covering letter to accompany it: “ _________________ is transferring funds in the amount of _____________________ to ________________ [recipient name] via SWIFT [or even via check, if you'd like to take that extra precaution when you are accepting a check drawn on a foreign bank in payment for goods or services]. This transaction is made using clean, cleared funds of non-criminal origin, and is being transferred in compliance with applicable laws; further, these funds are free of all liens, taxes, encumbrances and other claims of any sort, and are being conveyed to be utilized for legal purposes.”
The above steps will help to keep both you and your bankers in the best possible standing. Should you wish to view Ex-Im Bank's latest updated Country Limitation Schedule (CLS), go to http://www.exim.gov/tools/countrylimitationschedule/index.cfm.
Should you wish to find out if the country with which you are considering doing business is “watchlisted” by either the Department Of State or the Department Of Homeland Security, go to either http://www.state.gov/ or http://www.dhs.gov/ respectively. Both websites offer you telephone numbers to contact helpful civil servants to answer any of your questions.

FORECASTING, FUTURISM AND UNCONVENTIONAL PREDICTORS

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .









FORECASTING AND FUTURISM: USING “UNCONVENTIONAL” INDICATORS
Should Unconventional Predictive Systems Be Used By Forecasters?
By Douglas E. Castle, From The Global Futurist Blog


In forecasting and in futurism, I believe that it is best not to exclude any predictive system or indicator, regardless of how unconventional or seemingly – superstitious, from consideration. What is likely a great deal more important is just how much weight to assign to each of these systems and indicators. Going one step further, the more of these systems that one uses (assuming that each is given appropriate consideration or “weight” due to its historical correlation with the actual occurrence of events) in a multivariate prediction model, the better the quality and reliability of the forecast.

In a configuration being used by a forecaster where there appears to be a confluence amongst a large number of these predictive systems, both scientific and anecdotal, the more likely the outcome and the validity of the particular event being forecast. Plainly speaking, when all of the indicators in all of these systems point in the same direction and at the same time, the greater the likelihood of a given event's occurrence. Let's call this Douglas E. Castle's Theory Of Predictive Confluence. I like the sound of it.

Given that most self-proclaimed “Futurists” [i.e., pundits, gurus and prophets – I'm grinning now...] base their predictions either upon an amalgamation of predictions made by other forecasters or trend-spotters, or upon a combination of the extrapolation of past trends and events in combination with some applied imagination, I refuse to rule any potentially predictive system “out” simply because it is associated with the seemingly supernatural or superstitious.

In the recent past, it has been repeatedly demonstrated that when a significant number of supposedly credible authoritative sources predict an event, especially in the capital markets, it tends to come true; this, to me, is less about prediction and more about a self-fulfilling prophesy based upon a “herd movement” mentality.

In the simplest example, if a large number of these authorities and experts are predicting a bank's imminent collapse (regardless of any real financial data to support the prediction), there will be a high probability of depositors running to the bank to withdraw their funds in order to place tham at a “safer” institution, and, if the bank's shares are traded on a public exchange, it is also highly probable that the market price of the shares will take a precipitous dive. In this case, the future was actually made, and not merely predicted because of the influence of the forecasters on the behavior of consumers and investors. This is a kind of “forced future.”

In my forecasting, I use a recipe comprised of these ingredients:

  1. An extrapolation based upon correlative history and an application of my imagination;
  2. A Prediction Equation based upon all types of systems, both conventional and unconventional; and
  3. A composite of the predictions of other notable and influential futurists.

In the past, I have found this recipe to be the best for both short-term and longer-term forecasts.

Enjoy the spectacle of the Blood Moon in particular, and more generally, open your mind to all predictive systems and indicators – they all exist, some for thousands of years, for a reason. I choose to keep an open mind and be receptive, as I believe every businessperson, investor and futurist should.
