An Entrepreneurial Opportunity



 Andersen Design currently has a promotional show in the Trading Post above Calypso in downtown Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Since we were told by our fiscal sponsor that we must raise 1000.00 in personal donations to prove that there is an interest in what we do, this fundraising event has stalled. Doing crowd-funders is not in our skill set, which is why we applied for fiscal sponsorship- so that we can apply for grants from organizations that exist to give money away. It seems to me that if we are awarded such a grant, that should stand as evidence that there is support for our cause.

So while the fundraiser for the museum is still ongoing, it is back burnered.

In the meantime as I am sitting in the gallery where our current show is  display, I am feeling that this show as a permanent display will attract its own energy the longer it exists. Alas the space is only temporary and so we are looking for a collaborator- perhaps someone in antiques, an art gallery or a home furnishing store, interested in featuring and being a dealer for Andersen's vintage collection. For many decades Andersen Design never made it to the collectibles market because our line has been handed down from one generation to the next. Many private collections date back to the fifties and so our line is not only iconic in its own right but it is personally iconic to the history of many families. In the days of mass culture amplified by the internet, Andersen Design still stands for individualism. Our line is a great brand for developing a niche market identity for complimentary art as well as our own. You can find our contact information on our website at www.andersendesign,biz. When this show ends , we are hoping to have another more permanent space in which it can be relocated.

The Freedom of Access Act does not require that public information be posted online in any particular format, just that public records be made available.

Which Currency will Emerge as Most Valued in the New World Order ?

pascal-meier-unsplash Also published on Medium;s Data Driven Investor I woke up in the morning contemplating how the world had just suddenly changed over night, or at least the human perception of the world. My thoughts then jumped to a time I have only read about, when a similar event happened in the realm of science. The story goes that around the turn of the twentieth century, scientists believed that mankind had figured everything out that there was to know about how the workings of the physical world except what was considered to be a minor detail. Existing theory could not account for why the observed spectrum of black body radiation, diverged at higher frequencies from what was predicted. Plank solved the mystery by making a different assumption about the nature of the frequency of black body radiation. Others were assuming that radiation was continuous but Plank assumed that atoms could only vibrate at certain frequencies that were whole number multiples of a base fre

I am a Baby Boomer, and this is the story of how my generation let the great wealth divide happen.

Featuring The Maine Capital Corporation of 1976  Established in the wake of a newly centralized United States Economy,  Image for post Image by Mackenzie Andersen using public domain clip art Legal status disclosure: This is an opinion of a layperson. independent researcher ,and private citizen of Maine. My generation, aka the baby boomers, did not create the great wealth divide that advantages the few at the expense of the many, but we allowed it to take place. In order to understand a great effect, one needs to understand the molecular response occurring at the scale of individual human interaction.This story posits that the centralization of the American economy was a large contributing factor in the creation and escalation of the wealth gap and examines how it manifested on location to the benefit of the private capital interests of the few. The story takes a step back in time to the when the first act of legislation passed after the centrally managed economy of Maine was declared
