Here's How 1st World Companies May Expand to the 3rd World

Here are the facts, potentials and imperatives:

1. The 3rd World is not exactly a bastion of new business ideas and technologies. Proof: there are hardly any 3rd World originated products and technologies in world markets. 3rd World Research and Development as culture and institution are minimal if not zero. The logical imperative: 1st World companies must partner with large 3rd World employee groups to set up new businesses in the 3rd World. The joint ventures should access over six million US invention patents on file, plus 145,000 US patents approved yearly. The new companies may start with whatever technologies will make money in world markets.

2. The 3rd World has millions of potential business partners. These come in the form of employee and managerial groups large and small. 3rd World managers and employees are business skills. They know local conditions, have connections and privileges for accessing land leases, marine waters leases, franchises for exploitation of natural resources, permits and licenses, local suppliers, local markets and even some international markets.

3. 1st World companies have to help in a world-girdling campaign for formation of 3rd World investment unions. An investment union is composed of several thousand managers and employees in ten or more companies. The union plans on building one joint venture company every 2-3 years. The large numbers are required because most 3rd World salaries range from just $200 to $700 monthly. It will take nine-month salary loans before the large groups can form at least half of capital for a million-dollar joint venture company.

4. Investments must be made in one 1st World country at a time. It’s best for 1st World companies to ‘gang up’ on one 3rd World entrepreneurial mass at a time. The chances for success are highest where there are the most number of brains and resources. The country with the most number of investment unions should become the first target. There is no substitute to business partners who are well-prepared.

5. First investment target must be the Philippines. The Philippines has a 30 million-strong employee and managerial mass, plus around ten million Filipino contract workers and migrants in the 1st World. These business skills can more easily be organized because they are all looking for additional income due to their low salaries. Filipino employees abroad also want to help relatives back home and the home country in general. The best way for them to do so is to invest in new joint venture companies forming back home. The Filipino diaspora remits around $15 billion yearly to relatives back home. Most of the money goes to mall purchases of imported goods and construction of houses. Persuading the diaspora to invest even 20% of remittances will help capitalize thousands of new companies in the Philippines. Persuading overseas Filipinos to invest at least ten percent of their monthly salaries will multiply the number of companies created. A most persuasive tack is joint venture schemes between Philippine investment unions and 1st World corporate 'names.'

6. 1st and 3rd World companies and peoples must lobby their governments to pressure the Philippine Congress into passing a Loans for Mass Entrepreneurship law. An LME law allocates 10% of tax take and bond proceeds towards nine-month salary loans to thousand employee investment unions setting up joint venture companies with foreign corporations. Foreign governments may offer to buy 20-year Philippine bonds provided an LME law is passed and most bond proceeds get retailed into salary loans for investment union entrepreneurship.

7. 1st and 3rd World companies and publics must campaign among Philippine employee masses to set up joint venture companies. A joint venture quadruples local capital thru foreign investment and machinery loans. Thus a Philippine consortium of investment unions may build say a $10 million ethanol distillery by investing just $2.5 million. The joint venture partner invests $2.5 million. 1st World manufacturers and their banks lend $5 million worth of machines and equipment. An ethanol distillery may profit at an incredible 80% of sales (according to Brazilian experience) so all participants earn good money out of the adventure. 1st World industrial companies may sell their production much more easily by partnering with 3rd World investment unions and throwing in their credit worthiness into the partnership.

8. A propaganda campaign conducted by our cyber army’s physical ‘regiment’ in Philippine malls may help speed up formation of Philippine investment unions. All major Philippine cities have several malls. A booth in each may be equipped with TV and CD player, pamphlets and leaflets that describe the new joint venture schemes. A 2’x6’ tarpaulin display chart of the concepts serves as attractor. Practically all Filipino employees frequent the nearest malls. Overseas Filipinos on vacation bring their families to the malls. Mall booth personnel may sell the joint venture schemes herein described to all booth viewers. Funds for the mall campaigns may come from warrior contributions and fees from advertisers in this blog.

9. 1st World companies and employee masses must campaign within their societies for Congresional passage of an Expand World Markets law. The EWM law allocates five percent or more of state taxes and bond proceeds towards loans to 3rd World governments that have passed a Loans for Mass Entrepreneurship law. The LME law lends ten percent of state taxes and bond proceeds to members of thousand-employee investment unions that plan on setting up joint venture companies with 1st World corporations. The EWM-LME partnership is intended to convert five billion 3rd World poor into new employees, therefore new consumer markets. The target: end the current world-scale recession thru creation of new markets for 1st World companies whose 1st World markets are already saturated. Since laws have perpetual effect unless repealed, the EWM-LME tandem shall channel and revolve trillions of dollars towards 3rd World joint venture entrepreneurship on perpetual basis. Perpetual creation of good-paying jobs will gradually strangle all poverty monsters worldwide.

Why investment unions as joint venture partners? If investments and corporate profits flow among employee masses, huge consumer markets get created. If thousands of 3rd World entrepreneurial groups form joint venture companies each year, 1st World companies will sell a lot of machines, equipment and factory inputs. Concurrently, 1st World financing companies earn interest income and 1st World joint venture partners earn good dividend income. Rising shares’ values also enrich all stockholders. The degree of prosperity depends uoon the interest and action of all concerned.

But most importantly, thousands of joint ventures formed yearly shall create millions of high-paying jobs for the poor. The new employees qualify for mass entrepreneurship loans. Creation of jobs, markets and mass wealth shift to overdrive. If from the outset the EWM-LME programs pour hundreds of billions of dollars in investment funds into Philippine investment union joint ventures, our cyber army’s first theater of operations shall declare quick victory within a matter of decades or less. Thereafter, our cyber army confronts other poverty monsters inflicting terrible miseries among the masses of another 3rd World society.
