Ending the Current Recession (Part 4 of 5): Phil. Joint Venture Markets

Who will buy the joint venture products and services previously described? Here are possible billion-dollar markets for Philippine joint ventures:

1. Food production is one priority for our anti-poverty army’s Philippine campaign. Reason: statistics reveal that 60% of Filipino incomes go to food. If massive local food production halves the rate, the savings will enable Filipino families to afford consumer goods, better housing, and more services. This means more sales for factories and service companies. Rising business sales will form a tightening noose over the current recession.

Initially, 30 million Filipino employees earning $270 monthly on average may gain P7.5 billion monthly in food savings, equivalent to P80 billion ($1.8 billion) in new purchasing power each year. Much of food produced by the joint ventures should be exported to Japan and Pacific Rim nations, especially seafoods, fruits and processed meats. Prices of such items in wealthy East Asian nations are 3-6 times Philippine prices, especially seafoods. Philippine exports will be facilitated by such nation’s food businesses, which according to our schemes should set up joint ventures in the Philippines.

Since acquisition cost is low, retail prices of Philippine food exports will be low, translating to Pacific Rim consumer savings at perhaps eight times Philippine rates (salaries in 1st World Pacific Asia are 5-10 times Philippine salaries). As Philippine agribusiness expands all over Southeast Asia, Pacific Rim food savings may balloon to $100 billion-up annually. Again most of the savings may be spent to consumer goods purchases. Billions of dollars in new sales will enable 1st World manufacturers to haul themselves out of the recession and stay hauled out for good.

As millions of Philippine joint venture agribusinesses (especially thousand-hectare marine aquaculture farms) and their 3rd World copycats expand all over the tropics, world-scale food savings translating to purchase of manufactures will assure near-permanent shackling of severe recessions worldwide.

2. Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and Coastal China have exceedingly crowded and polluted cities. Companies, schools, extended families, retirees, employee groups from these wealthy regions may buy entire floors of ‘flowery cliff’’ buildings in our army’s thousand-hectare reforested Philippine resort chains. Copycats may extend the forested resorts all over Southeast Asia.

Clean air, wide spaces, island-hopping tours, building space prices 40% cheaper, low-priced foods and services (especially health and senior care), low living costs for retirees, are very powerful magnets for our resort chain businesses. Internet and telecoms facilities, and multi-racial business prospects (millions of 1st World tourists) add to the attraction. Employee union copycats will create trillion-dollar tourism industries all over the tropics.

3. Local and export sale of E75 fuel (75% ethanol, 25% gasoline) will enable the Philippines to earn perpetual ‘OPEC volume’ incomes, especially when Philippine ethanol producing joint ventures expand throughout the tropics. According to Brazilian experience, ethanol refineries make a profit at an astounding 80% of sales.

Our schemes enable employee masses to own both sweet sorghum farms and ethanol distilleries. Trillion-dollar consumer markets will thereby form in the Philippines and wherever Philippine ethanol industries expand. E75-fueled bus, taxi and cargo service companies will likely crop up wherever there are ethanol distilleries. The same for boat fleets and ship transports.

Again our anti-poverty army should lead the way up to tropics-level, all at excellent profit for us all, courtesy of the EWM and LME laws. E75 fuel will help conserve the world’s limited stocks of hydrocarbon fuels so the oil cartel should be thankful. Petrodollar magnates should invest in 3rd World biofuel production instead of viewing the industry as a rival.
