Compassionate capitalism is the most pragmatic one

Global efforts to make medical technology and healthcare services sustainable, affordable and accessible to all, particularly to the poorer two-thirds of humanity are desperately needed. David Green developed an economic paradigm that he calls humanized capitalism, which would make these healthcare products and services available and affordable to the poor. This paradigm uses production capacity and surplus revenue to serve all economic strata, rich and poor, in a way that is both financially self-sustaining for the company, and affordable to all members of society. In 1992 Green directed the establishment of Aurolab, a not-for-profit manufacturing facility in India. Aurolab is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of intraocular lenses, which are surgically implanted in the eye to replace the cloudy lens during cataract surgery. Green helped develop high-volume, quality eye-care programs that are affordable to the poor and self-sustainable, independent from user fees. Collaborating with several institutions, he helped create an ‘Eye Fund’ that provides fifteen million US dollars in affordable loan financing for sustainable eye care programs and a related 1.5 million US dollar capacity-building grant. At the same time, he works with the Pacific Vision Foundation to develop an eye hospital serving northern California where revenues from insured patients would cover costs for the uninsured, and collaborates with Grameen Health in Bangladesh to develop eye hospitals. Finally, he developed the social enterprise company, Quantum Catch, to develop affordable retinal imaging for eye disease detection and monitoring, and a non-invasive method for monitoring glucose levels for diabetics. Recently, he has focused on making good hearing affordable and accessible as a co-founder of Conversion Sound, which developed an affordable high-quality digital hearing device.

What is Communism?

As the world is now, communism will never work, and the beginning of world wide communism would have to be fitted to every area, but in time they all would work for a common goal and the science will move a lot faster than it does today. The closest thing a Communism would have to a government would be councils elected by the people, councils which would be kept under control by the people; they would have no real power or authority. Some people hate the rich and some cops hate rich people and they want communism. Communism can’t work because people have different talents and skills, thus people can’t all be equal, or classless. What about the 25,000 that were starved daily in the Ukraine under Stalin? A forced starvation where people were going insane and eating their own children! What is the matter with people in the world today? If you like communism so much don’t live in the US!”. Did you not read the article? It clearly stated that communism in practice is unfortunately not true to the pure definition of communism. What about the 25,000 that were starved daily in the Ukraine under Stalin? A forced starvation where people were going insane and eating their own children! What is the matter with people in the world today? If you like communism so much don’t live in the US! anon73339Post 39. What people need to understand is that there is idealistic communism, and then there is the reality: corrupt dictatorships posing as communism, which is in fact the opposite of the idealistic people’s rule. According the definition of communism by the man who coined the phrase, communism *is* stateless and classless. Most of people outside really scared of communism will go into the people mind and try to get rid of it. So the manifestation of communism in the Soviet Union is not “Communism” in the pure or political science sense of the term, right?

THE RESOURCE BASED abundance ECONOMY

We need people in all categories to develop RBE. A main aim is to get this information out to people so the whole world can start to imagine and picture what a life in abundance without money can be like. “A resource-based economy is a society without money, barter or trade, with the awareness that Humanity is One family and where technology, science and spirituality is used to it’s fullest to develop and manage the planet’s resources to provide abundance for everyone in the most sustainable way.” Where did the money come from in the first place? In the beginning it was based on rare metals, like gold and silver, and because of it’s scarcity it could be used as means of trading, instead of cows, hens, corn and other rather-impractical-to-carry-around stuff. Since the world economy is based on scarcity, if there is too much money, they won’t be worth enough to pay for what we need, the resources. If there is an abundance of money for everyone there would be no value in the money. Growing the economy and “Printing” more money to pour into the system, so that banks can lend out more money, and companies can pay their debt, with more debt, with more money. Why would people want to do anything, if it wasn’t anything “In it for them”, like money? Well, I sit here now and write this, not because I earn any money on it, but because it gives me something else. A resource like oil is continually being pumped up because of the money it makes, instead of researching and developing new environmentally friendly energy, thus continuing to pollute the world. In a resource-based economy with no money, barter, exchange, borders or passports, there would be no reason to produce weapons to defend borders and kill people for property and profit. We could actually have a resource based gift economy today, if everyone simply stopped using money.
