Multi Currency Shifts


Multi currency shifts are bring great opportunity.

We live in such exciting times.  New waves of productivity are quickly eroding the establishment and creating opportunity for the small guy everywhere. Individuals can now be multi currency investors.  Multi currency businesses can now be started by a single person.

A recent message entitled Multi Currency Realities looked at  some of the fundamental ways the world is changing due to the internet.   We saw how Google, Napster,  Carig’s List, You Tube and many internet evolutions have rocked the establishment and their old ways.  This all helps us small guys be multi currency and multi nationally involved.

This destructive technology will bring more people to higher standards of life, but those who do not adapt will suffer as they try to hold onto old outmoded methodology.  A large chuck of society will be hurt.

Politicians will blame others for the pain. A favorite political trick to thwart anger is to use nationalism to blame other nations for negatives created by change. Yet the change is from technology and is global…no one’s (and everyone’s) fault and it is good!

Wise investors and businesses know this and look beyond these managed perceptions of the old guard.  They ignore the noise in the daily media and do not trust manipulation of information by governments.

We live in a global multi currency economy. We are global, multi currency spenders and those who prosper in the era ahead will have global views and business.

We can see this future in the present.

A great example of this new era was seen last week when broadband swept away old era of broadcast in the Olympics.

I am not much of a spectator but am keen on the Olympics this year because our daughter’s significant other, Ben Marsden is competing, a member of Great Britain’s field hockey team.  Go GB Go!

Here is our daughter Eleanor and Ben at our farm last summer enjoying more relaxing pursuits.

So I wanted to see the opening ceremonies as they opened!

NBC however decided (I am assuming for advertising purposes) to delay the show.

We, the market objected.  A New York Times article by Brian Stelter  entitled “Tape Delay by NBC Faces End Run by Online Fans” explains what happened:

“NBC, which owns the exclusive rights to broadcast the Olympics in the United States, spent most of Friday trying to keep it that way.

“NBC’s decision to delay broadcasting the opening ceremonies by 12 hours sent people across the country to their computers to poke holes in NBC’s technological wall — by finding newsfeeds on foreign broadcasters’ Web sites and by watching clips of the ceremonies on YouTube and other sites.

“In response, NBC sent frantic requests to Web sites, asking them to take down the illicit clips and restrict authorized video to host countries. As the four-hour ceremony progressed, a game of digital whack-a-mole took place. Network executives tried to regulate leaks on the Web and shut down unauthorized video, while viewers deftly traded new links on blogs and on the Twitter site, redirecting one another to coverage from, say, Germany, or a site with a grainy Spanish-language video stream.

“As the first Summer Games of the broadband age commenced in China, old network habits have never seemed so archaic — or so irrelevant.

“The Olympics to me is a benchmark for how fast we’ve gone with technology,” Brad Adgate, the senior vice president for research at Horizon Media, a media buying firm in New York, said. “Thirty months ago, no one was talking about YouTube. Now, it’s a verb.

This is probably the last time the Olympics can be controlled in this way.

TV (broadcast) still dominates the media. In another four years, by the Summer Games in 2012, “Olympic ad sales could be turned upside down.

All advertising and business will be different.  Broadband will become more important than broadcast.

This will become an era when small is big. Chris Anderson describes this in his book “The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More”.

The last marketing era was dominated by the big guys and broadcast. This was a distribution system where it was most efficient to send one message to millions of people.

The internet has introduced the era of broadband where it is most efficient to send millions of messages to one person each.  This favors us little guys.

Count on this and adapt your multi currency business, investing and way of life now. Look for this incredible opportunity in businesses that are shifting from big to small, from local to global and from broadcast to broadband.

Until next message your  future encompass the world.

Green Investing Thoughts


Green investing thoughts can bring us fortunes so I am declaring this Anti Panic Week because so many readers are sending me articles filled with doom and gloom. I just hate for anyone to miss the incredible opportunity out there or waste their lives with worry.
4-generations
I was just in Oregon visiting my mom and grandkids. Here I am with Sequoia, the youngest.

One thing we learn with four generations all together, is that each generation has a difficult time understanding the next. My mom (85) can barely handle the computer and never will know more. Sequoia not yet two is already punching buttons and she understands how computers serve her!

A recent message Green investing ideals looked at some thinking stimulated by Dr James Ephraim Lovelock, an independent controversial scientist, author, researcher, environmentalist, and futurist who lives in Cornwall, Great Britain. He is known for proposing the Gaia hypothesis, in which he postulates that the Earth functions as a kind of superorganism.

He is the father of climate change science and just about everything he’s ever predicted has come true.

Here are some thoughts stimulated by this thinking:

Focus on innovation not conservation.

Invest in technology.

Prepare to adapt to new ways of living.

Crisis will bring a post consumer society.

Human lives are most fulfilling when driven by a sense of purpose.

We will soon be forced to live more purposeful lives.

There is always reason to be optimistic.

Enjoy life!

I buy into it!

We can see how these ideas are already evolving and how opportunity is popping up everywhere.

A Fox News article entitled “Floating ‘Lilypad City’ Could Help Climate Change Refugees” helps remind us of the first three ideals: Focus on innovation not conservation – Invest in technology – Prepare to adapt to new ways of living.

The article says: “Imagine what life would be like floating around the world on a giant island capable of holding 50,000 people and completely sustaining itself. Well, welcome to Lilypad City.

Designed like a lily pad, the innovation by award-winning Belgian architect Vincent Callebaut could be used as a permanent refuge for those whose homes have been covered by water in the future, London’s Daily Mail reported.

“I think trying to accommodate the millions of people left homeless by environmental changes will prove to be one of the great challenges of the 21st century,” he told the Daily Mail. “Some countries spend billions of pounds working on making their beaches and dams bigger and stronger. But the Lilypad project is actually a long-term solution to the problem of the water rising. The goal is to create a harmonious coexistence of humans and nature.

“A lake in the middle of the island will collect and then purify rain water, while power will be provided through a series of renewable energy sources including thermal, solar, wind energy, hydraulic and a tidal power station”, the Mail reported.”

Here is a rendering of these lily cities from the article.

This article reminds me of the story about Chicago’s sanitation department in the 1800s. They were grappling with demographic models and were in a panic because models showed that at the then current growth rates, sometime soon in the future all the streets of Chicago would be covered in several feet of horse manure.

The solutions of the future do not live in the technology of the past. Plus the technology of the future is here with us know…just not fully grown…such as water purification.

Back Yard Pond
I am buying as much land as I can that has water. Here gallons a minute of spring water flow directly from a rock face into a small pond we put in our back yard. At 49 degrees its a great way to wake up in the morning!

Technology also makes out of the way places worth more.  Take this Cotacachi acreage as an example.

This offers incredible value if you want solitude and unimaginable views…plus electricity.

This house for sale with a caretaker’s house and acreage, is just 17 miles, a 55 minute drive from Cotacachi Ecuador.

The views on this acreage are worth the drive as you can see here.

Ecuador-acreage-views
This Cotacachi real estate has more or less 150 acres plus the two houses and it borders this lake.

Ecuador-acreage-lake
The asking price?

The asking price is $50,000 for the two houses and the 150 acres.

You can get more details as an Ecuador Living subscriber in the article Opportunity for Solitude near Cotacachi

There are other enormous benefits we’ll gain from change we cannot even begin to understand or see. This is why two most important Lovelock stimulated ideas “There is always reason to be optimistic” and “Enjoy life! are so important!”

These are not new ideas…but ones we should not forget. These are ideas I look forward to sharing with you.
