Notice to All Readers:   In order to read this article, you must make a commitment to share it with whomever you believe may be able to share it with others (a friend, colleague, associate, social network contact, social media guru,  member of the press, government official, etc.) so that the information contained herein eventually reaches one or more Heads of State in your region of the world.    Otherwise, do not waste your time reading this article.


Here Is My Challenge to All Heads of State:

Imagine being the leader of your country in an Alternate Universe and you've been entrusted to come up with a viable political, economic and governance model which is based  strictly on your country's existing and potential physical infrastructure, human resources, natural resources, environmental landscape, and topology.   

In that Alternate Universe, your government cannot rely or depend on any of the following:
  • Foreign Aid
  • Foreign Direct Investment
  • Sovereign Debt 
  • War, Threat of War, or Involvement in Internal Destabilization Efforts Against Other Countries in order to plunder another country's resources or bend them to your will;  or be either a willing or unwilling participant in such efforts (e.g., participation in sanctions against other countries, etc.).
  • Sale of National Assets to Foreign Entities.
  • The Foreign Exchange Rate of Your National Currency.
  • The Benevolence and Goodwill of Other Countries.
  • Your Country's Rank on the Current Global Military Power Index.
  • Your Country's Rank on the Current Global Geopolitical Leadership Index.
  • Your Country's Size and Population.
