A Jamaica poor no more and united
Poor countries are getting poorer. The governments of some countries
like Sri Lanka, Lebanon, Haiti and even the US
commonwealth of Puerto Rico cannot even pay to maintain services.
Yes, even Puerto Rico with its connection to the mighty United
States is bankrupt and is undergoing all sorts of financial crises.
I am sure other countries will follow. “Houston, we have a problem!”
But, no one is really addressing it. There is no solution in sight
because no one acknowledges the cause of this dire financial
problem. These countries depend on taxation as their main source of
income but this is not enough. The poorest of these countries have
rich people. They became rich by going into business. These
struggling governments can overcome their poverty and even become
rich by also going into business.Years to come, we will look back
and exclaim, “What a stupid idea, limiting the income of a
government to taxes! How absurd!”
proposal in my book, “A Jamaica Poor No More”, is for
The Jamaica government to go into business to make a profit, an
honest profit. And, the objective is to compete with other business
to become the biggest and best corporation in the country, in other
words become the
of Jamaica. . If a country is to shed their alarming poverty, it is
essential they adopt my proposal. That is why I term this economic
system, essentialism. Actually, in my book, “A Jamaica Poor No
More”, I called it Jamaicanism but I consider essentialism more
appropriate. Let me rush to emphasize that this is not socialism.
Absolutely no business owner will have to turn over his business to
the government. America does not permit socialism. If it was
socialism, America would hit them with such repressive sanctions
their misery would increase tenfold. I consider essentialism to be
the evolution of the harmonious marriage of capitalism and
This new government business corporation will organize along
corporation rules and completely different from the civil service.
It will include a variety of types of business organisations such
as: corporation, conglomerate, franchisor, franchisee, partnership,
and sole proprietorship.
To guarantee the success of essentialism I propose Jamaica First for
our political parties. Jamaica First advocates that political
parties pledge their loyalty to Jamaica above their loyalty to their
party. The two-party system always includes an ‘opposition” party.
All over the world, there is extreme polarization of people because
of political parties’ opposition. United we stand , divided we fall
and politically divided countries are falling all around the world.
I am proposing that instead of the knee-jerk opposition, both JLP
and PNP and any other political parties, put their heads together to
come up with the best Jamaican government corporation possible.
Let’s have “cooperation” instead of “opposition”. Let essentialism
be a political unifier.
The government corporation will operate all types of profit-making
businesses such as:
1. Automobiles – importation, new and used car dealerships, repairs
(the general public and the government itself would be the biggest
2. Real estate – construction, sales, rehab ( most millionaires made
their millions from real estate)
3. Marijuana – recreational and medicinal. (Instead of throwing
hard-working ganja farmers in jail, they will become important
business partners). The state of Colorado is making millions from
4. Agri-business – right now too many Jamaicans toil over farming
the land to barely eke out a living but as partners with the
government corporation their life will improve.

About the Book
Even though man is basically good and has made amazing technological
advances, we continue to be mired in wars, poverty, crime and all
sorts of social instability. Why? Because our society cherishes and
promotes the love of money which is the root of all evil. . This book
is an invitation to join the Goodwill Revolution against the
addiction, worship and corrupting influence of money. Through this
addiction to money, a small rich ruling elite of money- pushers and
money-lords have used faceless corporations to buy our democracy,
corrupt our institutions, undermine the rights of our workforce,
devalue people and manipulate our value system. Do you want to
be happy or rich? Shed the brainwashing and seek true happiness of a
meaningful life over the phony highs of materialism.
