Emerging Nation Economic Union

Emerging Nations--Alternative to Failure.

You've heard of OPEC and you've heard of the EEC.  Now, I propose an Economic Union of Emerging Nations--EMEC. This is to help emerging nations to both leverage your position with the rest of the world, and to avoid the mistakes of the past Communities.

  • The OPEC oil embargo hurt the economies of the OPEC nations.
  • The Single European Currency hurt the European Economic Community.
  • The success of Germany was the result of the deficit spending of the Southern Nations:  Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.

The EMEC--Emerging Nations Economic Community--can join together to increase the potency of its negotiating power, and benefit from size to level the playing field with the rest of the world.  The industrialised nations.


1. Identify those among you who are Emerging Economies.

2. Identify, classify, and inventory your assets: What you have to sell.

3. Identify, classify, and inventory your present and future needs: What you want to get.

4. Calculate the cost of your needs.

5. Price out your assets and the value to your customers.

6. Invite purchasing nations to a Nation to Nation Trade Conference: N2N Conference.

7. Prepare to negotiate CPCI: Cash Payments + Capital Investment.

Example of Assets:  Oil, Minerals, Chemicals, Ports, Stability, Location.

Example of Needs:  Agriculture, Health, Microfinance, Energy.

1st: The Leaders of Emerging nations must identify themselves to each other.

2nd: Leaders must meet to agree to embrace the paradigm of an Economic Union.

3rd:  Proceed as indicated above.


As a metaphor, if everyone in the district worked for the Big Company,  the employees would have no place to spend their money.  This abuse was seen in "The Company Store" in the United States a century ago.

Microfinance is crucial to spread the opportunities among all the people in the district to help create a base--a middle class.

China: Rising middle class, rising economy.
India: Rising middle class, rising economy.
Soviet Union: No middle class, no Soviet Union.
United States: Declining middle class. Follow the path of the trajectory.

In the early days of America, the pioneers, built their own homes, farmed their own land, made their own furniture, made their own tools, made their own clothes.  In time, the division of labour resulted in many trades and crafts: potters making pots for cooking, The School Marm, The Preacher, The Blacksmith, The Butcher, The Baker, The Miller, The Barber, and so on.


Old Chinese Saying

"Never underestimate the power of a symbolic gesture."

The Quotations of Slim Fairview

"The power of the symbolic gesture resides with the people making the gesture."


Invitation to Address a Committee

Committees do not solve problems. Committees create problems.  The first trick is to invited EMEC Leaders to address a committee.  This is a carrot and a stick.  It suggests that if you address the committee, you may receive what you want. If you do not, you won't.  The motive of the committee is to gather information about what you are doing to benefit the members of the committee and their friends--not you.

Creating a List of Activity

This trick is to keep you busy in an effort to impede your efforts to accomplish your goals.  This give the appearance of progress toward your goal, but in fact introduces the need for an inflated bureaucracy to dilute your efforts.

Gathering and Providing Mass Quantities of Data

This gives rise to:

  • The appearance of assistance.
  • Creating the appearance of the need for assistance.
  • Justifying the need for more people to join the efforts.
  • Validating the act of forcing people upon you.
  • Creating a massive project to keep you obligated to the people exploiting you.
  • Making you lose focus and lose site of your goals to infuse their agenda and advance their goals.

Crowding the Project

This trick involves inviting as many people as possible to work on grand plans to dilute the potency of your position.  There will be delays and distractions to benefit the interests of other people--not you--others.

Lies, Propaganda, Disinformation, and More Lies

This trick involves distracting you from your efforts to accomplish your goals by attacking the warnings.  The tricksters will accuse their critics of:

  • Showing you disrespect
  • Insulting your intelligence
  • Marginalising your culture

This is to mitigate the warnings and to advance their schemes to benefit themselves at your expense.

Putting You in Charge to Reduce Your Control

This is a devious trick.  It is a form of divide and conquer.  Different leaders will be separated to take charge of different projects.  The projects will be crowded with people, burdened with excessive data, and cause delays and distractions.  You are in charge, not them.  Caveat: Do not let them put you in charge of what they want you to do. 

Wasting Money by Spending Too Much on Their Agendas.

This is another devious trick.  There will be more and more money for fewer and fewer projects, until the focus is on the projects they want to fund and the projects you need go unfunded and your goals are never achieved.


  • Do not listen to anyone who praises you or flatters you.
  • Discuss only business.
  • Speak to only those people who have the power to: 

  1. Negotiate the deal.
  2. Approve the Agreement
  3. Sign the Agreement
  4. Spend the Money.

Do not accept their invitations to socialize with them. Socialize away from them and discuss--freely and openly--the progress of your efforts.
