THE TRUTH ABOUT COMMERCE*

E-Commerce

Commerce: n. buying and/or selling of ingus in relatively large amounts

Ingus: n. information and/or goods and/or services

A garage sale and auctions are usually not considered serious commerce which truly exists when ingus is bought and sold in the hundreds and thousands and even millions.

SHARING AND PROFIT, A PHILOSOPHICAL DILEMMA FOR THE INTERNET!!!

images

Humans like to share their emotions, information, some products, and some services. The internet is potentially the best source for freely sharing information but unfortunately what is being shared is digitalized artwork, pictures, music, movies and other video products which is creative work that contributing humans would like to get paid for and maybe make a little profit.

How do you make a profit if what you create is sold only once and potentially shared by the world? Why tax or charge for every sharing transaction of a bought piece of information worldwide!

What this means is that you can recommend or share for free via a sample digital snippet of music, movie, or article but if you want the complete work or information or product then you have to order or pay for it from the individual provider. Yes, the provider or seller may be a monopoly distributor but this permits them to censor your intellectual property and keep it at the bottom of the barrel and put no effort towards advertising it to the public.

Whoever was interested in your complete personal product would have to buy only from you directly and this would ensure that you would justly be paid for the mass appeal that your information or product would have.

In effect every creative person would have a cash register in their home and would charge the going price to whomever was interested and knocked on their doorstep. Yes, mass advertisers or distributors could still work out business deals with you promoting your creative efforts for a percentage of your profits but you would be guaranteed that you know exactly how much you sold and the advertiser, promoter, or distributor would not be able to scam you secretly and steal from you.

Effectively your website or cellphone would have a SHARED compartment and a BOUGHT compartment which you could not share with anyone but yourself or only on your personal device. Your personal device could be shared physically with family members and friends with physical access to your personal device.

That physical personal device could potentially be used by thousands of humans whom you decided to share with but that would take a considerable amount of time and it would not be instant access to the world via the internet!

This system would require considerable cooperation worldwide and require massive hardware and software changes but it is potentially doable and it is about the only just internet system which can be devised by humans.

This would also ensure some degree of privacy and you would not have to share your purchases with the world.

HOW TO DECREASE IMPULSE SHOPPING 15 WAYS!!!

Shopping

Make a shopping list of things you really need and try sticking to only the items on it without buying anything extra.

Before you buy small money items ask yourself “do I want it” or “really need it” and is it something for which I can wait a week, or month before purchasing. If you don’t need it right away or the next few days then don’t buy it.

Before buying big money items take some time out to do research or comparison shopping from more than one store or location.

Budget your money and don’t overspend your monthly limit. Except for food and gas for work try to shop once a month, save about 10% for emergencies such as car repairs, and don’t exceed your budget unless it is an emergency.

Don’t use a credit card but use cash which you bring along or a debit card which prevents you from going into debt for it.

Take a picture of the item which you impulsively want to buy with the price tag and comparison shop at home.

If you are actually shopping for an item to buy and you find that it is on sale then that is the time to buy and don’t buy something only because it is on sale and you probably don’t really need it right away or within a few days if at all.

Shop in your clothing closet first for long unworn items which may be exactly what you think you need to buy new.

Don’t shop when angry or upset because you will be tempted to buy just to make you feel better.

Instead of satisfying an urge to shop focus on some crafting or interesting hobby instead until the urge to shop goes away. Find something to do which is almost as pleasurable as shopping and develop a good frugal habit by doing it more frequently.

If your friends are compulsive shoppers then avoid shopping with them if you can’t abandon them.

Find new friends whose life does not revolve around shopping.

Don’t buy anything from a store without a return policy and definitely start using the privilege if you start having second thoughts about the purchase.

Don’t consider shopping a form of entertainment. It is costly fun.

If you have a penny pincher in the family then let them do most of the shopping.
