The world is on the verge of a revolution that will change the conventional ideas about the economy, markets, finance and credit. The changes will be caused by the increase in technology companies. It is necessary to actively invest in the IT-company to capitalize on their domination of the future.
In the world formed a new cluster of companies that, having a high financial capabilities, a strong and promising business, unlimited monopoly in their respective segments and ambitious leaders who are able to literally change the world. What is probably dreamed of Steve Jobs – is more than the iPhone in every pocket or a computer in every home.
High-tech companies are now characterized by the following features: a high stock of money with virtually no debt and a positive constant influx of money from the core business very little chance of the emergence of competition in the market: 100% of the competitors could be purchased, as they say, “standing” continuous improvement of technology, so most of the new solutions, know-how, innovative products and the software goes to a narrow circle of companies
global presence, not so much physical as informational and technological.
These features of the world tehnogiganty practically do not depend on national governments, or from financial institutions, from anyone! These companies already have large, although not all of the obvious, part of world domination, in fact, they probably great future. Change anything in this scenario, perhaps, too late.
At a time when more and more wealth is a) public (internet, cellular communications, programming), b) intangible (content and software, communications, electronic money), no one, except for the leaders of IT-segment, there is no chance to preserve the advantages which they enjoyed in the pre-computer era.
Victim 1: Government.
already is widespread, the term “revolution of Facebook”, though, seems to be copyright to no one claimed him. However, the reason for the success of many revolutions that occurred in 2011 (Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and others) is considered to be participants in the events co-ordination of social networks.
Another example: freedom of information. Internet is open to all, attempts by the state, as before, losing control of the media seems to be meaningless. This is clearly seen in Russia – people no longer trust the official media and focus on the Internet. Government can no longer keep secrets (Wikileaks example) are not able to consolidate the mass, unable to control the emergence of social groups (previously – “parties” obsolete.).
State and Government have lost the monopoly on information, propaganda and brainwashing citizen. With them they have lost a significant part of government, which previously had. But a mistake to suppose that this power is lost forever: it is simply transferred from the government in the hands of companies that control the network media. Earlier benefit from control over the information in the form of financial flows extracted the state – and now it is a global Internet company.
If so, will the changes last?
What will become of the fiscal functions of the state?
Possible with the help of the Internet does not create a representative and direct democracy, which is involved in government is not a handful of elected or appointed bureaucrats king, but every citizen?
Will the state continue to control the lives of citizens through the issuance of references to it, permits, information that can be accessed by other means?
Are there borders for programs, information, move data, whether they remain for the physical movement of goods and technologies for physical movement of citizens?
Will the state continue to monitor the election process to the authorities, the judicial system, transport infrastructure, and so on?
It is unlikely that global technology companies do not reflect on these issues.
Victim 2: Banks and financial companies
is very simple – you can already make payments without going to the bank, and do not use (directly) his services. This is called “electronic payment systems.” Google has its own system of payments and social network, in which 90 million users… that prevents Internet giants, with its enormous financial resources and the audience to go ahead and organize the “electronic banking”, “electronic exchange”, “e-insurance company” “Electronic Credit Bureau,” etc. and so on?
It’s just a matter of time before the current banks, stock exchanges and other financial intermediaries will be forced out of Internet companies. At first there is nothing but an old and thick textbook on economics, striped suit and a shiny bald head, a second is all: the core business, generates revenue, lack of commitment, customers, technology, the desire to conquer the world.
