Name: James Carr

From: Oregon

Bio: IT Student, Programmer, Web designer.

Area of Expertise: Technology Developer/Administrator

Topic: Economic structures

Headline: Monopolies and Freelance

Nutshell: The world will be divided into monopolies and freelancers.

Vision: The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and nothing is happening to prevent it. An ignored problem does not solve itself. The future holds a massive economic segregation of large and small businesses. Corporations will monopolize, and those who protest them will remain freelance and probably will remain at the lower-medium income level.
