how to live a long life?
I think the problem with our economy is that we have diluted the meaning of the word â€śinnovationâ€ť and forgotten the word â€śinvention.â€ť Innovation is very incremental, safe. Invention requires more risk and a more comprehensive understanding of a problem.
For the last 3-4 decades we have become increasingly lazy. We are constantly reminded about the need to create clean, affordable energy, reliable crop production, better schools, more efficient industries like construction (one of the most inefficient) and even more effective charitable giving. Yet, no solutions. The Departments of Energy, Agriculture and Education all spend more than $100 billion a year and NONE has a solution or even a Plan. This has been going on for decades and itâ€™s time to understand the reality that government will never solve our problems â€“ it never has. History reminds us that individuals create solutions with inventions â€“ thatâ€™s how it has always been.
Finally, we need to educate people about â€ścreating jobs.â€ť Government and business do not create jobs, only demand does. Unmet demand inspires invention and businesses produce products or services to meet that demand. The demand creates the jobs.
A few examples of unmet demand that could create millions of jobs:
Clean AFFORDABLE energy.
Better schools that are affordable.
Affordable urban living
More efficient charity tied to American Made products/relief.
Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™ve been working on for the last 10 years and will launch soon. Have a look:
