The ideal plan would have no "downside". It would be positive in that it would save us if there is trouble ahead and only enrich us if there isn't. It would enhance and operate in parallel with other systems, especially the Presidents "stimulus" package. Further, it would not rely on narrow numbers of individuals at the top to make it work, as people can be compromised. Only systems, intelligently conceived and executed can be relied upon. Systems that create barriers to the many common ways by which businesses fail. If the system is right, it will deliver us. This system would drive production. We would produce our way out of our problems through the creation of "new" wealth, rather than scavenge the remnants of old wealth. Think of the US economy, indeed the world economy, as being analogous to a pie from which all carve out their own piece large and small. The size of that pie is not static. It can get larger, or smaller as it is now doing. The plan would take advantage of this, by making the pie "explode" with growth. So much so, that a seemingly tiny investment could mushroom into a much larger return, thus providing enormous "stimulus" to the average American to drive the economy forward into the stratosphere.
Ideally the participant's investment would be set at an amount that virtually anyone could acquire and even afford to lose ($10 a wk.). The average participant would have to actually do precious little in the way of work. People who live from earnings on investment often do exactly that, 'little', except for the thought involved in picking the right investment. The group would of course seek to limit their liability by organizing as a corporation or an LLC. The LLC or Limited Liability Company, is almost made for what's being proposed here.
Participants would have to join together with others to take advantage of the enormous power of one group, all focused on the accomplishment of one thing. The ideal number would be as large as possible to increase the power of the group, yet small enough that everyone knows, or at least is acquainted with all others. Further, a participant who is in two or more groups at the same time could wind up with inordinate power and control. One person, one vote seems a reasonable requirement here.
If You Want It Done Right, Do It Yourself
"Leaders", while efficient, create a security problem. Leaders have enormous power vested in them and equally enormous opportunity for corruption. While leaders in a national or statewide governmental context may be necessary, the system being proposed here is for a relatively simple investment business. This makes genuine democracy possible. That's not to say that "moderators" or people placed "in charge" in an organizational capacity don't have their place, as long as power isn't too concentrated and they're rotated out occasionally.
Democracy requires a vote. The vote is the most important part of all being suggested here as it would drive all action. Everything would turn on it. It has to be done right. Even a hint that the vote "might not be" secure could build into dissent and discord. While the voters identity should be kept secret to prevent friction or even coercement, the vote itself must be in the open for reasons of transparency. To not have an open vote for all to see and tally, is not very different from some kind of new checking account at your bank, in which receipts or statements are no longer issued. Such a thing would of course be ridiculous.
Knowing the Truth
After the vote, the next most important task would be to develop company "intelligence", particularly as it concerns potential investments. The organization would commit to the development and implementation of a system that would determine the truth of things, and effectively communicate that truth so all can easily understand. Their will of course be mistakes made, which may cost money and even jeopardize entire operations. The only value a mistake has once made, is what can be learned from it. All major mistakes should be analyzed to the marrow and might even be framed in a special web page called the "Hall of Blame". There they will live in infamy as expensive reminders of "What not to do". To further guard against mistakes, all investments would be many in number and diverse in character, as almost certainly there will be at least a few investments that will occasionally slip through the cracks.
Rather than pushing the machine away and trying to prevent its proliferation, The Sperry Plan would welcome them, embrace them and indeed, run towards them. You see, the only thing preventing these machines, indeed all technology, from being beneficially owned and applied by the people of this nation is, funding through investment. Whoever funds it, owns it. Machines/robots are now relatively inexpensive, especially when you consider what they are capable of producing over a long period. Many sell for less than the most inexpensive of automobiles. Indeed, robots have been for quite some time, manufacturing other robots. However, the component most responsible for their enormous capabilities are their brains, their computers, which are now selling though computer outlets at bargain basement prices. Companies would commit to R&D that will bring all manner of machines, especially robotics, on line as soon as prudently possible. This should increase profits and drive down the cost of goods and services, which should increase the value of the dollar and further enrich the new upper-middle class that SuperCapitalism will produce. Machines are here and have been for decades. The wisest thing would be to bite the bullet, bring them on line and use them to the advantage of all.
