How OLD is the writer of this article?!!! TWELVE? First off... there is a HUGE gap between the needs and demands of the techno-geniuses converting the world to cattle through droning... and people who can actually build what they are demanding. Who is that blind that they can't see Apps and Clouds as ways to integrate Big Brother into our lives while reducing our ability to think independently? As we TRULY do what is necessary to revive global economies, technology will more likely get trashed as people are less able to afford it- in all ways those words are defined.

 

The businesses of the near future may indeed include technology but rely on it. How many banks have been continuously hacked these past 9 months now? ALL OF THE MAJOR ONES. Because the lesser ones will be easier once the big ones are destroyed. Buy SHOES online? How many people are Wal-Mart shoppers who don't know their own show size? Computer-aided fitting is a more likely venture and you can't do that through a portal.

 

As a career lender who specialized in Small Business before the mass-termination of competence in America... I would recommend: an enterprise that taps into the massive over-supply we are stuck with because China won't take it back. RE-education- the nation can't Read, Write or do Arithmetic because texting stole those from us. RE-construction- new homes suck. Better to retrofit an older home with modern energy saving and generating equipment. At least the foundation is sound. Entrepreneur Coaching- if you want to win, get a coach who plays the game, not read books about it in college and makes false representations of "talent" like 100% of our business executives in big companies do now. Counter-Cyclical Enterprise-- if BIG does it, do it under their radar. Big is too big these days and wasteful, you can make yourself a lot of money just value-selling their clearance and discards. Just about anything environmental and natural. Mother Earth Magazine remains the best resource for potential along these lines. Read, THINK about what you read, get creative and turn it into opportunity. Most importantly, stop thinking your only option is a wage. Capitalism is rooted in enterprise not indentured slavery. Get your butt cracking on self-sufficiency instead of a free ride.
