A Idea For Economic Development Community Reinvestment Initiative

Here are new ideas for us to consider across every urban or rural city across this country where landownership and the people become share holders of the land where they live positioning the power of eminent domain within the land reinvestment and development corporations targeted for implementing for example within the under serve tieing in a

the development of an solar energy industry between having new forms of investments and
commerces & trade developments that can be studied to advances these ideas with targeted \
areas and nations found within Mother Africa .

The business model must far excess the old sister city projects which is dysfunctional with no results
and with no meaningful positive results that translate into real business development or jobs for either side of the oceans and lack of true meaningful and purposes of strengthening our ties with Mother Africa.

A 50% US , 25% Local , 25% All Africa contributions for complete development of all international trade policies.

We must evaluate the existing IPO of China , India and Mexico to re-engineer new International Public Offerings that fit our concepts thru the legal languages to adapt for the underwriters to formulate the first Mother Africa International Public Offering for industrial development.

We need ideas of thinking out side the box !

When we have leadership that is out dated in its think meaning with a 19th century thinking to address an 21st century problem it will not work due to the advancement of technologies and the innovations of these technologies entering within the market places is a paradigm that must be understood that the need for human labors is becoming least needed with the time frame of the 21st century we will need evolve our thinking into the 22nd century thinking to address a 21st century problems.

This is solid, and it should be a major focus for top Black Entrepreneurs that are involved in the area of urban redevelopment. I know Magic Johnson is a player in this area, he may be highly interested in the solar energy aspect as well. You might try contacting him, if you haven't already.
Great observation Bro JC
Thank you
And I wish I would find a way to reach Bro Magic Johnson for
an solar energy celebrities profile model to be use and introduce
within the black community.
I totally agree and any suggestion in contacting him?
Bro Wisdom2See
Check his website. His Magic Johnson Entertainment office is located in Century City, CA. Probably listed, 213, 310, or 323 area code.
Aaron Brooks (football player) is also involved with redevelopment in Newport News, Virginia. I don't have any contact info on him.

Indeed we must develop new economic positioning for the black community in these
serious times for the communities to be true shareholders of there communities for them to invest plus it would be truly great if we could find Majic Johnson or Aaron Brooks or anyone
with Star Power.

For this form under the Technology Power Task force group I have an idea that is worthy
for all to get involve formulating an LLC corporation with all the members we identify the
state to file .

Solar LLC or Technologies Power TF Groups, LLC
each member is a share owner of the legal create corporate entity.

No donation you share in a legal business.
Will began a conference need some one here to help organize .
What I am doing here in my state must be reduplicated by process to
enrich all member from commerce and trade .
