Read the essay below. Afterwards,
try to get the best understanding you can of the following questions.
(1) What will be the functions of a Black Power Economics Governing Body?
(2) Is it important the the Black Power Economics system be national and international in scope?
(3) Why can an independent Black Power educational system be organized at little or no cost?
(4) Why is it important that We establish diplomatic relations with Our allies in an official capacity?
When Black Power Economists get together, they will form
a Black Power Economics Governing Body. The purpose of the Black
Power Economics Governing Body will be to nationalize and internationalize
Black Power Economics and give the Black Power Economics system
a national and international presence. The Black Power Economics
Governing Body will address fundamental economic issues and areas.
On a national level, included among these are:
(A) promoting and coordinating some activities of Black Power Economics Units;
(B) facilitating the creation of new Black Power Economics Units;
(C) coordinating and popularizing already existing Black Power educational units into an independent Black Power educational network;
(D) making revolutionary investments that stimulate the Black Power Economics system's ability to produce and distribute goods and services;
(E) facilitating the establishment of a Black Power militia / national guard; etc.
On an international level, the Black Power Economics Governing Body will:
(A) engage in diplomatic discussions with Our friends and allies throughout the world that make them aware of what they can do to help Us move beyond capitalism;
(B) explore and establish trade relations and economic packages with Our economic allies throughout the world;
(C) make revolutionary investments aimed at taking Black People beyond capitalism and into a Black Power Economics system; etc.
An unorganized Black Power educational system already exists in the United States of America. Up to this point, Black Power advocates have not done enough to promote that system. Without spending a dime, a lot more can be done. Black Power advocates have enough access to the media, teachers and the public in general to steer more people to the alternative information that is available. By simply focussing the attention of parents and educators to what is available online free of charge, a big step can be made toward countering much of the misinformation white power plants into Our psyches. This could be one of the issues the Black Power Economics Governing Body could focus on and generate the type of results that will do Us good.
Likewise, the Black Power Economics Governing Body could assess the needs of Black Power Economic Units and go to Our economic allies and say, "We have Black Economists who can serve Us well as doctors. Can you train them for Us as part of a favorable education package?" Or, the Black Power Economics Governing Body could approach Our economic allies and say, "Our Black Power Economics Units can produce these goods and provide these services. Can you make good use of those goods and services and establish favorable trade agreements with Us?" The dollars and cents needed to carry out this type of initiative is minimal.
There is so much that can be done at minimal cost in terms of dollars and cents. The Black Power Economics Governing Body could help Us get busy in an official and organized way in that regard. It would provide Us with some much needed "status."
