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.

Communism and State Ownership of Intellectual Property

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.

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds. In recent years as past predictions of fiscal disaster following stimulus spending failed to materialize and so the thinking about national debt and deficits has evolved, most noticeably with the development of  Modern Monetary Theory . In the   fall of 2020,  National Affairs  published a story,  Does the Debt Matter ? by Peter Wehner & Ian Tufts. Peter Wehner is vice president and senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center and served in the last three Republican administrations. Ian Tufts is a recent g

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
