Corporate Inversions are good (Yes I said it)

This is one of the reasons that I decided to found The Hamilton Institute to help resolve these issues in the global economy. This may sound a little weird but corporate inversions are great for not only business but for helping people raise their financial profile. The difference between people on Wall Street and Main Street is Wall Street make money work for them. Main Street just spends its salary without a financially planned way. Instead of making a ruckus about this and getting potential voters inflamed. The politicians should realize that some people some invest in these companies. I’m not excusing the stripping and hopscotching which is detrimental to the tax rolls.

The Hamilton Institute proposal for taxes features a special section to deal with inversions, repatriation, and removing the U.S. worldwide taxation system. This will create a situation where the government receives the tax payments to upgrade critical sectors in its economy. The money can be invested in keeping the U.S. competitive in the global economy like education, R&D, and infrastructure. The corporation, investor, and the institutional investor will be given the incentive to continue to take risks.

Introducing the Tesla Mobility Group

With the VW scandal and the Consumer Reports downgrade of Tesla’s Model S has created a new prospect for me. Tesla, which is under the tutelage of Elon Musk who is breaking down a lot of barriers. Elon has transform industries whether it is in commercial space exploration with SpaceX, green energy with Solar City, and the automotive industry with Tesla’s electric cars. The emissions scandal which has done the company severe damage on all fronts and at the time of this writing is still ongoing. I have a disruptive idea for a disruptive identity by putting VW under Elon Musk’s Tesla Motor Group to form the Tesla Mobility Group. This will help create a new automotive titan which helps to move the industry towards sustainability.

This is entirely possible by cashing out the controlling interests and giving Elon control of the organization. I recommend the U.S. Government (and all players) to consider this to help shift suppliers to begin combat declining industry clusters in the U.S.  By reforming the tax code, welcoming entrepreneurs from all over the world, and a high tech immigration policy by shifting to new clusters to revitalize the economy. Some say that this is the government choosing winners but the market has already done that. The demand is there which leave certain issues to resolve like upgrading infrastructural concerns, tax credits for establishing entities, and creating the incentive for customers to purchase the future.

The U.S. Dollar, Bitcoin, and Blockchain

While many see Bitcoin as a fab, blip, or an annoying phase in finance. The “brains” are researching into the technology to see the true potential of BlockChain. Many are researching a way to for “seamless transactions”(no currency fluctuation and credit card fees) that BlockChain may allow. Many are having very healthy debates about the future of the technology. Banks and Credit Card companies see the benefits of having a secure but open ledger system but it is still too complicated for management or the public. I truly see the future of having a truly global currency without national governments interfering.

 

One application of Bitcoin which The Hamilton Institute agrees with the experts. Using Bitcoin, to stop the chaos that happens with crashing currencies and national disaster areas like earthquakes or civil wars. The blockchain tech can be used to dissolve and counter the Snowden effect for tech companies, governments, and civil society groups. We are becoming more aware and sophisticated where the guild lines of the past no longer apply. The Snowden effect has caused a lot of damage and trouble for American Tech Companies. This could be used to move to privacy debate to Anonymity which will match where we are in this technological period.
