Looking around wondering how we are where we are? It’s been a long time coming and no, it isn’t about Donald Trump.
His lack of IQ, putting aside non-existent EQ, has simply taken what felt like a crumbling system and turned it into a collapsing one.
The rot began a while ago:
Let’s not forget, the US, UK and Germany are the stalwarts of free-market capitalism.
While everyone might keep saying this is too complicated to solve, it really isn’t.
What’s the Answer? We need radically reformed markets – truly open, competitive and transparent capitalist markets that lead to greater equality, competition and collaboration. Equality + competition + collaboration = (Cue the trumpets) Entrepreneurship
Entrepreneurship is the answer. We’ve always believed this at ideamix. We need entrepreneurship because it ensures individual success and build communities. We need entrepreneurship to ensure meaningful jobs and living wages for people who want to work. We need entrepreneurs to bring their employees and stakeholders up with them. We need entrepreneurs because they know they must compete and collaborate.
