Economic Development (2)

This is a "Parent Category" that features articles regarding Houston, TX economic development and economic development initiatives that affect the Houston, TX metropolitan area marketplace.

This series of articles discusses the "health factors" regarding the macroscopic global marketplace, the microscopic local marketplace, and those things that directly and indirectly affect the previously mentioned health factors. Ironically, we live in a time where those health factors are becoming more and more "holographic" in nature; as the local marketplace (as a result of the internet) is transforming into the global marketplace. Eventually, (unless inhibited by detrimental environmental change) the microcosm and the macrocosm will be one and the same. The local marketplace and the global marketplace will be indistinguishable.

The major catalyst for this metamorphosis is what I refer to as the "Triple A Factor." The Triple A Factor consists of the terms "Attention, Accessibility and Availability". As these factors collectively and simultaneously increase, the conditions for the microcosm to grow into the macrocosm comes into being. In this article I will briefly discuss each factor and how it affects the marketplace (either microscopic or macroscopic).

Collaboration VS Competition In The Marketplace

Written by Jay Davis

Small Businesses: Why Do You Still Focus On Competing?

Our society (on a global scale) is in the midst of a major paradigm shift in the marketplace. We live in a global connected economy. An economy that gets more global and more connected literally every second of every hour of every day. This paradigm shift is caused by the ever increasing ease of acquiring what I call the "Triple A's". These "A's" are "Attention, Access and Availability". I will cover the particular dynamics of the "Triple A's" in more detail in future articles, but it is important to note that these three factors are literally driving market dominance from the control of the great competitors to the control of the great collaborators. Economies (on the macroscopic level) and businesses (on the microscopic level) who do not embrace collaboration will ultimately fail by the time "Generation Y" inherits the world.
