On 2016_11_23 I sent the following letter to many Estonian politicians. The letter was titled "EU eesistumise agenda ettevalmistusidee" (English: "An idea About Preparing the Agenda for the EU Leadership Period")
The letter is in Estonian, but the core of it is in English. The Estonian text is just a formality, a padding.
L.p. antud kirja lugeja(d) Saadan Teile ühe idee 21. sajandi tööstuse kohta. Antud tekstilõik pärineb mu enda kodulehelt ja ma ei hakka seda eesti keelde tõlkima. Küll kõik aru saavad. ---tsitaadi--algus---- For many people the "good" is a synonym for "popular", but I think differently. I also think that the ownership of huge factories, which are a very nice and effective form of creating copies of physical goods, can be calculated real-time by giving every person on planet Earth exactly the amount of stock of the factory, as that person's work hours are percentage wise from all work hours that were spent on that factory. The initial capital investments from "venture capitalists" can be converted to work hours according to some minimum hourly wage plus a penalty (reduction of venture capitalists' work hours) that compensates for the rigged financial system. The newly created factory has a loan from the venture capitalists, with interest that matches with inflation, id est if the inflation were 0%, then the interest would be 0%, and the profit side of the venture capitalists would come from the dividends that are paid to all people, who hold stock. The loan must be paid back before any dividends are paid. Not a very nice proposal to the workers of the factory, but it is transparent, I think that also fair, and financially a lot better for the workers than the current arrangements are. It also allows fast bootstrapping of new companies, if there exists any need for such fast bootstrapping at all (http://www.crowdfundinsider.com/2015/07/71466-parallellas-creator-reveals-why-he-will-not-be-returning-to-kickstarter-for-other-projects/) (archival copy: https://archive.is/iPhDR). Workers of big factories might even do seasonal migration between multiple big factories without loosing any stock or investments. That should increase income security a lot while keeping costs down at all factories and all of that without reaping anybody off, because the workers themselves own the factories that have the cost benefits. >From dividends point of view the 2 types of stock, the venture capitalists' stock and the workers' stock, do not differ, but to protect the more simple-minded workers, the worker's stock can never be sold and can change its ownership only through inheritance. In a way the workers' stock can be seen as a form of "citizen's salary" that encourages work and discourages slackers. To make the new ownership transition revolution free, the new business order can be gradually adopted by creating one additional company type called "Calculated Ownership Company", abbreviated as CalCo. All of the new ownership related legislation is just a legislation about CalCo-s. ---tsitaadi--lõpp----- Antud idee võiks olla Eesti kui Euroopa Liidu eesistujamaa agenda Euroopa Liidu piires. Nagu märkate, ennetab see skeem Brexit'i ja Trump'i "valgekraeliste lihttööliste" ülestõuse, võimaldades samal ajal asutada uusi ettevõtteid kasutades olemas-olevaid sääste. Venemaa ja USA oligarhidele antud skeem kindlasti ei meeldi, aga Euroopas võikski elu materjaalselt, mitte ing-tingimata rahaliselt, aga just materjaalselt, jõukam olla kui Venemaal ja USA-s. Antud skeem oleks ka Euroopa "vasakpoolsetele" heaks moderniseerumise võimaluseks, võimaldades "vasakpoolsetel" seista "lihttööliste" huvide eest ilma, et lihttööliste huvide eest seismine taanduks ära töökate, ettevõtlike, inimeste tööviljade röövimisele. Lugemise eest tänades ja pragmaatiliselt, Martin.Vahi@softf1.com P.S. Võite antud kirja vabalt edasi saata, kasvõi oma ajaveebis publitseerida.
