2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2014 by 54 countries around the world. If it were a cable car, it would take about 23 trips to carry that many people.

  1. Wow, you sold Corporatism by the end of the article. A literary slight of hands. Pretty cool. You have me now pondering things in a new light of possibilities. Keep up the good work.

    1. Thanx Tom! I’m glad the article relating to Ferguson + poverty-employment made sense. Although Corporatism offers some intense challenges, it may be best for us to be honest about it’s development. If we’re more honest about it’s role in our modern economy, we can maybe look at curing the systemic + highly dysfunctional under-employment that we have. As we all know, lack of employment opportunities can create so many problems.

      1. You mentioned Ferguson but really in a larger sense the growth of terrorism globally, social and political instability are true hindrances to economic and social development and thus prosperity (Not to mention how having basic needs met benefits the environment). At the root of ALL of these insecurities is the growing inequities of wealth. Why not use the corporate distribution network to distribute prosperity? Corporate hierarchy in a pure sense would not rely on cronyism and nepotism, but be an earned advancement. This could, promote organization and efficiencies in governments that, well, aren’t known for such. You are right again in calling for us to embrace reality and look at the possibilities. I will draw the line at very large communal projects like health, education, scientific research, etc. reasons are risk/benefit, oversight, and capitalization of such tend to be so large a responsibility it is probably best it be shared.

  2. Fascinating ideas Tom. Theoretically, these hold possibilities + they deserve consideration. Although some will say that the charity work that some corporations do are proof of a distribution process, what you seem to be hinting at is that the so-called “organic” nature of corporate adaptivity could actually bring about a different concept of distribution than what we’ve been accustomed to. These + similar ideas about Corporatism definitely need to be discussed.
