Who wants to help me change the world?
It's just an idea I've been musing over at this point. I don't have the capital to do even attempt to begin, but what if:
-We built an attraction that would promote science in a place that is deficient of places that promote science. Anyone who is familiar with science centers knows what I'm talking about...but we make it a place not only where people come to explore science from modern and historical science exhibits, but where people can meet, socialize, drink, eat, read...it would have its own cafe and restaurants, as well as a library/reading room.
-Since people will be coming to see the place, we can seed the area economy by helping local entrepreneurs start restaurants, hotels, and other businesses related to tourism. But here's the catch: every business would have to model itself to pay employees a living wage.
-People will need to live in the area to work; commuting doesn't cut it for long if the distance isn't practical...so, new housing construction. More help to the local economy.
-Since the people living and working in the area will need goods and services, seed manufacturing and supply chain industries, and model them after the living wage, as well.
I don't know if it will work. I'm just thinking it might help a local economy and bring back the middle class in some part of the world. Anyone with me?
If this first goal is met, the project's first phase can begin, and another campaign to fund the venture capital to start the rest of the project will begin.
