This will require creativity and vigilance from all partys involved.
So I intend to use a business model developed 100 years ago at Lincoln welders, Lincoln MA. This is a democratic model of governance with very limited management. I believe it is an ideal model for a business who's survival will depend on timely and aggressive action. 66% of the global annual profit will be… Continue
