The Consumer Economy

US has been long chrished dream and destination to live dream for most of the part of world. Let it be jobs or top dollars earning, or even earning in dollars
means a lot for for professional / people from low currency value country.
The bigger question is, “ What drives such a big value of their currency?” .

  • Great and intelligent people
  • Favorable government
  • Infrastructure
  • Opportunity
  • High consumption
  • Export

GDP Driver

This is a matter of great brainstorming, and also a subject of finding roots of greatness, and what all can be benchmarked to prosper the global economy.

In the above graph, the real disposable income has decreased from 57.8 % in 1960 to 38.2 % in 2013. So there is a net decline of 19.6%.
On the other side expenditure has equally grown many fold almost eaten over the disposable income of the nation.
It can be easily estimated as a basic analysis that, income of the people in comparison of the consumption has not increased at all.
There is hardly marginal saving of 2 % in last 53 years.

GDP Driver Chart

SO, it looks like based on the inferences on data, that the disposal income and expenditure is driving the GDP. But the great question remain partially answered, HOW USA is driving high dollar value.
But looking at data above, there is only 3.8% of increase in Export, whereas Import increased by 4.6%, so there is net import of (4.6% – 3.8%) i.e. .8%. The increase in saving (or, more accurately, of saving relative to investment) is a necessary condition for reducing the trade deficit but it is not sufficient. Households and businesses in the United States and abroad must be
given an incentive to spend more on American made goods and services and less on the goods and services made elsewhere in the world. That incentive, of course,
is a change in the relative prices of American and foreign goods and services. Whenever, income is negative and expenditure remain same or increasing, the personal debt takes a rise.
Investment from abroad is the major source, which keeps the interest rate in control, even if demand for the debt as a loan or credit card is high.
If the dollar falls while the saving rate remains very low, the increase in net exports will cause a rise in interest rates and a decline of fixed investment and
Other interest sensitive forms of spending. This narrowly focused decline of demand would be more destabilizing to the economy than a rise in net export balanced by a broad-based decline in consumption.

Can Analytics Read Brain?

ID-100110588Analytics is about reading the meaning out of data, but what if it starts reading futuristic does and don’ts of a parson. It makes the impression as horoscope reading, but in fact this is very scientific and mathematical. Normally a person can’t be very different than what he has been doing so far, and that’s become foundation of the guess work. Multiple no. of circumstances decides our decision and those circumstances are the deciding variable behind every decision a person makes. If circumstantial variables are calculated properly, an approximation of the decision output can be estimated. This is as good as forecasting the future events or mind reading.
Inflammation is very common word, which related to infection wound, bacterial attacks and any other physical attack from outside.
But there is an also a inflammation due to mental stress, which eventually are the decision guiding variables.
The variable related to these possibly are:

  • Fear of rejection
  •  Unnecessary protection
  •  Fear of social withdrawal
  •  Counteractive
  •  Ideal ego
  •  Depression
  •  A strong desire to win and extreme fear of losing
  •  Arrogant
  • A strong desire to show power

There could be thousands of other traints coming from people with diverse background and diverse kind of experience in life. Many of  human traits are well defined in human psychology.
Machine learning and analytics or any of these advance application might seems to be famous jargon of the day, but these are basically have well research evident as old as during the time of Hitler.
The famous Nizor project, which is a Psychological Analysis of Adolph Hitler (His Life and Legend) by Harvard Psychological Clinic, New York Psychoanalytic Institute, is the evident for that.
In 1943, the Allied forces wanted to understand Hitler’s psychological makeup in order to predict, to the extent possible, his behavior as the Allies continued their prosecution of the war and to anticipate his response to Germany’s defeat. The Allies were also seeking to understand the German national psyche to gain an understanding of how to convert them into a “peace-loving nation.” This report was written for the OSS by Dr. Henry A. Murray, pre-war Director of the Harvard Psychological Clinic.
Murray explored a theory of personality in which the interplay of 20 psychogenic needs of varying strength produced distinct personality types.
This is all about getting closer to the source and accurately studying the reasons affecting the event to occur. In quantifiable environment it is easy, but very challenging if behavioral data needs to put into a psychoanalytic frame work.
Population is the market, and psychology and human behavior drives the population decision making power.

OM : The Universe voice

om_science
OM is the most basic and widely chanted word (Mantra) in Hinduism.
Hinduism ideology backed by Vedic Cosmology and tons of facts mentioned in Vedic scripture in the form of mantras and chanting are basically the very foundation of many important discoveries in the present day.
The most common and heard almost in every temple and religious place in India is “OM” is said to be the sound of the origin of the universe. The sound recorded in the deep universe resembles this sound.
As a result upon chanting, a connection gets established in between human body and nature. When body connects its origin a very strong energy is sensed through mind and soul, and that’s the moment a devotion and faith originates towards the unseen source of energy.
AUM represents many trilogies of meanings:
Symbolically the three letters embody the divine energy (Shakti) and it’s 3 main characteristics:
(1) beginning of the universe
(2) the life period of universe
(3) destruction of the Universe
AUM is the word which represents the three first forms of God:
1) Brahmaa (Creator of universe)
2) Vishnu (Operator of universe)
3) Mahesh (Destructor of universe).
As per Mandukya Upanishad:
1) The “A” stands for the state of wakefulness, where we experience externally through our mind and sense organs.
2) The “u” stands for the dream state, in which inward experiences are available.
3) In the state of deep sleep, represented by the sound “m”, there is no desire and consciousness is gathered in upon itself.
Stephen Hawking has said either we have failed to see the 99% of the universe or we are wrong about the how the universe began.
Basis of the Hinduism is based on the logic of cosmology, and the rituals are the ways to connect to the universe. As getting closer to the nature gives pleasure, and energize our body and mind, the same is applied when we chant mantras. Their syllable impacts our organs very differently and hence creates energy, cheer, and happiness inside. A human body if, controlled in a disciplined manner, it is a self sustained mechanism.
Vedas are the oldest script of science in the present days.
Pythagoras Theorem, the decimal system, introduction of Zero, the concept of infinity, Binary number system are from Vedas or the ancient Vedic literature.
The mantra not only signifies science rather they are very powerful, if chanted properly for human body.
When the mind is relaxed, your blood pressure decreases and ultimately the health of your heart improve. The sounds resonating from these take your mind and senses to their maximum productivity.

Sine Curve is you

sine curve_final

Straight is dead….. crest and trough, where joy of life lives to the fullest with optimism and pessimism. Almost everything follows a maturity cycle, and cover its own course with own challenges and magnitude of up’s and down’s.
Knowledge, Life, power to remember, behavior, curiosity, temptation, risk capability, physical strength
Almost everybody come across the above during his/ her life cycle. The curiosity to learn, explore is maximum in kids at an early stage. Whatever he finds, he tries to touch, feel, and explore. No matter whether that’s meant for him or not or sometimes things even not safe.
As a person grows and become aware of basic human traits, behavior, manners, He restricts his curiosity because his own learning in the past and maturity which he gains, biased his natural tendency to learn, and the pace of exploration eventually slows down and after reaching a level, his behavior becomes so much biased by his own knowledge that he stops exploring at all, and that is the peak of the cycle, which defines the threshold limit of a person.
Science, human behavior, and its related outcome follow a mutual discovery (they discovered each other).
Day and night during their cycle meet a point, where one is about to finish and the other one just started the journey. Knowledge at different stages of life follows the same rule. Kid and a very old person is the best friend, because one is heading above the ground zero, and another heading towards the ground zero. And both of them are very close in the cyclic pattern of the sine curve.
Even the ECG machine keep showing sine curve, when a patient is alive and fine. It follows a simple, boring straight line, once life is not there, which no body prefers…of course.
Perseverance, Physical strength, never die attitude keeps you always ready to bounce back on the sine curve. Maximum energy is required, when you have to maintain your position at the top, but no energy can keep you at the top all the time. It’s not the individual, but the cycle, which you are the part of.

3 P for Entrepreneur: persistence, perspiration, and people

3p
Having the experience of orbited around the sun for a considerable no. of years, the distance covered so far has taught a good portion of its syllabus. While trying to do something innovative and also conventional, I decided to write on these guiding P’s, which will be your friend especially when you attempt to do something big, unusual and innovative.
There is always a order, followed by disorder and when you think differently and follow your intuition.
The 3 P’s has a great companionship with our life, especially with those, who dreams of creativity, thinking, wisdom, and using the wisdom to succeed.
Anybody who has ever become a great leader through all these 3 P also had a sense of integrity and dare to take decision and more over more ready to fail and also knows to how manage the failure.

Persistence: this fuels your body and mind, when actually there is no fuel. It keeps you going, it’s an eternal strength, willpower and your desire (how much strong) for your target.
Some body, who has not failed, he has not tried at all. Failure is the integral part of success. The strong will and eagerness to keep moving with focus on the Target is the significance of the persistence.
Perspiration: enjoy the fun of sweating; it makes you stronger every day. The one, who perspire, makes the story to inspire. It’s not a pleasure when you get into trouble while exploring options in your career and in your life, but once you come out of it bravely, that’s feeling of the instant, is just invincible. Your pain gives you an exponential gain.
People: No great objective is achievable unless you have great people in your team. Leader of the team is entire responsible for the success and failure of team. A great leader always welcomes the failure and the success equally, and he is eager to take the responsibility of the failure and when the success comes, he always shares with the team. Although these seems simple and may be not appropriate to some, but this is what distinguishes A Leader and A Great Leader.
