How do I survive the changing economy and its potential collapse?
Answer: Now is the best time for opportunists those who see the changing landscape of business as an open door rather than a closed one. First of all in a downturned economy it is best to go after new skill sets things that will make you able competition in the job and business market rather than suitable potential lower management material. School is an awesome place to learn about the new technologies that the rest of the world is investing and prospering with. Just because many American businesses have become the slow moving dinosaurs lacking creativity realize this is a symptom of fear of big businesses small businesses need to find out what the competitors are doing to succeed! Areas that have been seeing huge growth that companies are investing in but keeping silent are biotechnologies, patenting of new seed crops, biofuels, new food sources from the ocean and other tropic countries Thailand and Ghana are set to introduce tropic ripened green oranges to the world market. Food network shows are introducing the American public to a wide array of foods that have never before been considered as dietary mainstays. Lamb, exotic asian vegetables, aloe vera drinks, and acai (to name a few) have begun to show up on many metropolitan tables and since many of these foods are new to the market the prices are very reasonable.
There are many opportunities in the solar power industry with yearly expositions in many parts of the country allowing people to get info on how new solar cell technology can save them hundreds of thousands over the course of a mortgage lifetime. With banks, department stores and supermarkets leading the way in computerizing their businesses many tellers and cashiers have found themselves out of a job or working for pay to insignificant to make a decent living, yet if we take a look around to see what items are actually manufactured in this country we find very little on the landscape this is opportunity within itself. The ability to build a better mousetrap has made men wealthy since the dawn of time. Businesses to watch for huge growth potential are medical supply and related health industry positions, mining and metals manufacturing because we have to rebuild our infrastructure if we are to continue competing on a global scale. The quiet death of the middle class will do more harm to this country than any terrorism attack could. Many foreign nationals come to our country simply to educate themselves and return to their countries of origin to become our competitors.
The key for Americans is to tap into growth industries and avoid naysayers and prophets of doom. Americans have to stop being afraid of the competition and stop allowing big business to monopolize the marketplace a trend which has almost ruined the Texas cattle industry and nearly sank the EPA.
Americans need to stop equating less government with better government because in actuality it usually means no one is watching the till and you’re being robbed blind. We fear socialized medicine when we’ve had it in the form of Medicare for decades, our schools are no longer repositories of higher education because we spend more on basketball and football uniforms than books. Our unproductive farmers have become bigger welfare expenses than unwed mothers so a few can manipulate the trade tariffs while we outlaw hemp the most versatile and easily grown crop in the world while the rest of the world passes us by. All these things we do out of fear. Hopefully someone will ask the question what happened to the home of the brave and the land of the free before it is too late and we are all paying rent to China.
