Tax Code Implications & Effects

·         The Tiered Simplified Tax Code Solution Theory

·         by Annette Buchanan-Phillips

·         AMOS Hansa Research: Idea Mill

In this Presidential Election season we have heard of the 9-9-9- Plan from a candidate and now the 20-20 flat tax plan from another.  Both have been discussed but not much of a rush to jump onto the bandwagon.   The people have a few concerns, and the hype is rampant, but seems to fizzle quickly.

 Are we just not impressed?  Were those just catchy phrases; and substance and sustainability lacking? 

Well here is my plan, and no one asked me.  I am not running for anything...and have never been elected to anything...so what have I got to lose?

How will my Revised Tax Code help?

Based on Median individual income alone=$25,381 a flat tax across the board would be at 3%.

If Individual income is total: $250,392,781 (per 1000) then the tax paid would be: $7,511,783.43 for an unmarried which accounts for 32.5% (never married)   Divorced=13.2% Widowed=6.0% of Which total=51.7% of population:=$388,359,203.33 of tax paid

Married people taxed individually at a 20% discount at median income=$ 1502356.686 which accounts for 48.3% of total or= $120939713.223   and at discounted Median ($22,843 per person or $45,686 ) it =$24187942.6446 x 2= $48,375,885.2892 tax paid per marrieds overall=$375,154,991 with 1% discount per child living at home under 23 and 10% rebate for self- insurance. 

The total tax for unmarried $388,359,203.33 plus $375,154,991.00 for marrieds= $763514194 approximate tax paid at Median income.

The highest tax rate at 14% unmarried individual 250k + = $35,000 x 2=$70,000-20% for marrieds=$56,000 tax with appropriate 1% per child + 10% rebate for self-insurance.  This accounts for 10.2% of the total population $31782375.74 or $1,779,813,041,440.00 in tax revenues from that sector alone. Using the Median + top tier total tax revenues fall near to $2,543,327,235,440. For 1 year hypothetically.  Better skilled minds than mine would be more precise.

Educational data: 14.1% less than High School

                High School+ GED:28.4% 

                College/ Associates:29.0%

                BA/BS:17.9%

      Graduate degrees:10.6%

If people are better educated than ever before in history: then why is poverty at 303,778,193 people? (97.5% of population with +/- 5%)  Do only 7,813,726 people live above the poverty line in America as of 2010/2011 data? 

Could government owned businesses help? Would some strategic enterprise increase jobs, revenue and tax income by reducing the impact of poverty and it’s by product; of entitlement recipients?

This attempt to calculate actual values for this plan may be flawed because I am not equipped with a formulary, but I am doing it all using 2010 US Census figures data available online for an applications implications example.

Carrots & Sticks/ Poverty & Control

 

The Carrot on the Stick: The Strategic Use of Deprivation as a Recruitment and Mind Control Tactic

 

A Correlation of Poverty and Terrorist Recruitment

by

Annette Buchanan-Phillips

 

If poverty and deprivation are a strategic ploy to lure in victims; and or utilize the power of publicity; then how can the carrot move from out of the reach of the starving people, and into their hands? Of those who desire to help; is the response strategic, or a ploy of black, grey, and white propaganda?  Suffering which is designed for the strategic manipulation of the viewers at the expense of human lives is a tool.  Propaganda, which is true, false, or a mingling of truth and lies, is structured for believability.  Help from the expected sources is held out of reach by a punitive stick.

If Oil money is so prevalent; why didn't the wealth get spread to enhance rather than destroy lives?  That would be a Psycho-Social approach to relieve suffering instead of creating it.  If some people really wanted world supremacy, and to promote their Religion as the "true" path, then why didn't they adhere to their Holy Book and give alms to those of their own poor. 

Many of the oppressed are already converted, are they all turned by fear and dread tactics; as opposed to "milk and honey"?  The base of "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs" pyramid indicates certain markers which when forestalled or interrupted cause advancing beyond basic survival nearly impossible.  That anchors one to poverty, its lifestyle and its stresses.

I heard a distressing news story about an American child having died from tooth decay which had abscessed.  That seems unthinkable, but the Doctors cannot afford, to treat people on Medicare and Medicaid. 

Church groups can take the number of their membership and get Health Insurance quotes, to insure their congregations.  Large Congregations can self-insure with Treasury Bonds, or Annuities.  YHVH God, has given us the way to take up the slack of Governments, why not do it today.

I am a sales Agent for United American Insurance, but I am not Health Licensed.  I want you to know that I can only sell Life & Variable annuities, plus Health & Accident through them.  I passed the Health Insurance exam..  Don't wait for me, ask around, there are some good companies.  If you and your group are Costco, BJ's or Sam’s Club, members they can get your group quotes.  Otherwise please call me or email me: AMOSHansaResearch@gmail.com or (216)882-4834. 

God Bless you with perfect health, and a good mind to find solutions to storehouse His people.

 

 
Yetton-Jago Decision Making

 

Using I/O Psychology to Make Decisions

Annette Buchanan-Phillips

I/O Psych 700 Marcos A. Carreras; PhD

 

 

In my research, I came upon the Vroom-Yetton-Jago Decision making Tree; for some problems the path to decision may be different. 

(QR) Quality Requirement: the importance of technical quality.

(CR) Subordinate committment requirement

(LI) Information of the Leardership

(ST) Problem Structure

(CP) Committment Probability: who will support you in the decision?

(GC) Goal congruence: Genuineness of the Goals

(CO) Subordinate conflict: The choice of Conflict over solution.

(SI) Subordination Information enough to make quality decisions.

Utilizing such a decision making tree, one can funnel an appropriate, rational and effective choice.  Simply by feeding one's information into the funnel of options one may acheive answers.  The decision making style is described by these five categories:

(AI) Autocratic I= leaders solve problems alone

(AII) Autocratic II= leader accepts group inputs but makes final decision

(CI) Consultative I= leader shares problem, accepts individual but not group input.

(CII) Consultative II= leader shares problem, discusses with a group, ie focus group; but makes final decision alone

(GII) Group II= Leader meets with group to discuss situation...but does not impose will; final decision

Analyzing Ben & Jerry's

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream: Keeping the Mission Alive

Annette Buchanan-Phillips

I/O Psych 700 Marcos A. Carreras, PhD; Facilitator

UPhoenix.edu

 

Overview

 

The primary strength of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream is it’s mission to keep its employees as happy as it’s customers.  While the pay rate norm of executive to least paid employee is approximately a 90:1 ratio; this company’s mantra is a 5:1 pay ratio.  The pay rate is a part of the mission in three parts: (1) To present and produce the finest quality Vermont Dairy Product.   (2) To market and distribute that quality product locally, nationally and internationally. (3) Economic and social responsibility of operating with and promoting sound fiscal business policy.

 

Philosophy of Business

 

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield call their business philosophy “Caring Capitalism” and they work to keep the mission alive; in their everyday operations.  Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream uses Solar Powered tour busses.  The company’s Social Consciousness is built on the belief in all Human Resources as valuable, and that all people deserve fair wages.  Ben & Jerry’s moral code of ethics, extends to using Blueberries from Native American farmers, and having Chocolate Brownies supplied by the New York Homeless Group Bakery.

 The Rainforest Crunch actually comes from the Brazilian Rainforest.  Ben & Jerry’s foundation is funded by their business using 1% of company profits for Peace.  Of their 400 companies that is a huge contribution to the empowerment of many people in many countries.  Ben & Jerry’s mission is unequaled in the world.

 

The Competitive Environment

 

Ice Cream is a well known and stable category food product with an established consumer demographic.  “Flavor Loyalty” is its byword; and it is most used by families with children and people over age 55 without young children.  When the partners Bagel delivery business was not as successful as they had hoped, they took a $5.00 correspondence course on Ice Cream making form Penn State University and launched Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream with a $12,000 investment. One summer alone showed 30% profits in the packaged Ice Cream segment with prime Supermarket placement due to “Niche” market share leadership via toppings and fruity fad additives.  The novelty ice cream market segment was responsible for $3,200, Million of Ben & Jerry’s sales in 1990.  Their success has been unparalleled with exponential growth of 60% in the first 5 years.  

 

Company Climate & Culture

 

 

Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream is an Employee’s next best thing to heaven on earth.  The 5:1 pay ratio that is an integral part of its manifest destiny & mission has been a real point of contention for others hired at the executive level of the company.  The formula for the 5:1 pay rate is 48 hours per work week multiplied by 52 weeks a year by $6.50 per hour times 5= $81,500 per year salary. There is also a benefit of Free of charge Emotional Assistance; 7 ½ % pre-tax funding for charitable contributions which is greater than any other company.  Stock purchase plan, and profit sharing are a part of the benefits package.  It was Jerry’s task to spread Joy throughout the country.  From the Retro-designed round pint packaging to the festive marketing solar busses, he has succeeded in making a truly unique branding and image at Ben & Jerry’s.

 

Conclusion & Summary

 

Even in the down years between 1990 and 2000 Ben & Jerry’s weathered the storm of declining per capita household income in America.  They maintained market share having created scarcity with the pint sized round product packaging.  It implies sit down, with your personal favorite, and do not have to share it!  So, buy one for everyone.  The little custard shop graphics give the home made individual serving marketing framework impetus.

 

Observations & Suggestions

 

I think that Ben Cohen is a real guiding force for the company, and that without his vision, the culture would end and others would let the mission slide away.  If I would offer a change to the 5:1 pay rate ratio; then I would suggest banding the program, into four tier groups.  At the counter, store management, corporate support troops, and corporate executives.  The first year would have 90 day education, implementations, assessments, and incentives for every tier.  The 5:1 is per store; in other words store management to counter person; then corporate support to corporate executive at 5:1.  People can climb the ladder, and cross the cultures with seniority incentives, focus group rewards, suggestion and innovations bonuses to add to profit sharing and stock options and benefits at every level.

 That would preserve the integrity and vision, unburden new executive restrictions in a constantly changing marketplace and reward everyone at every level of the organization.  Ben & Jerry’s would be a great entrepreneurial model to teach to high school, vocational business schools, and colleges.  It is a great franchising opportunity if they allow for it, and I wondered if they micro-loan to others of the public.  I think they are a great Theo-centric type business sans the religion.  I will enjoy their ice cream now with a new consciousness.

Media Ethics

Annette Buchanan-Phillips

08/16/2012

On Media

 

 

 

Abstract

 

Media takes many forms, print and or non-print, which includes video, cinema, digital broadcast for television, movies, and internet.  It is everywhere, social phenomenon that connects people who are otherwise worlds apart.  Advertising that drives commerce by creating desire, and the means to fulfill it.  Education and all directives social and government reach more people faster and easier than anyone ever thought possible.  We are becoming so interconnected and interdependent that there is no turning back to where we once began.  Mobile phones, text messaging, and video-conferencing enable consultation with anyone from the least to the greatest, who will allow accessibility.

With great power comes greater responsibility for the consciousness that we have created and raising the global community from conflict to communications and resource allocation and utilization to maximize the quality of life of us all.  Now comes the age old question; where do we go from here?

 

Print Media

Books, newspapers, magazines, and tabloids may well go the way of the dinosaur and become extinct except for one thing; the no bleeps experience.  All electronic transmissions carry blips, bleeps and are composed of pixels.  There is no touching the pages, but we can interact with the screen that way.  The fonts, the illustrations are digital electronically, but in print one can create a collage.  It has become a matter of price and choice of preference.  I have heard that news publishers were closing who did not go digital as well as print, but if you want to know, then please verify. 

One needs no flashlight for one’s tablet under the covers. It is lit.  With audio books one can run to a

Non-Print Media

Films can gross millions in one weekend, whether they cost thousands or millions to produce, but the quality of the concept and the script is the true impetus of the work.  If we construct our entertainment vehicles thoughtfully, the content will express the cues to raise our individual and collective consciousness for every demographic audience.

Public service announcements and programming displays and informs the partaker of trends, norms, and programs in neuro-linguistic terms.  Like so many seeds strategically planted, the viewer and listener are programmed to accept the pleasure of being programmed.  Ads are how we know what to want, and drives the demand and sales of all goods and services around the world.  Non-Print media, and music are powerful tools that truly affect our everyday lives.  All creative purveyors of this medium and all media have the responsibility to act and produce ethically.

devotion to excellence in product & customer service. Reputation and relationships with consumers causes customer

loyalty.

unless someone like Shark-Tank or Davisson chooses them for investment. Yet, the small retail cupcake shops can

benefit from local affiliations, like COSE. However, large competition for me would be foundations, and Bio-Medical,

Pharmaceuticals, & Government Think Tanks.

The Carrot on the Stick: The Strategic Use of Deprivation as a Recruitment and Mind Control Tactic

 

A Correlation of Poverty and Terrorist Recruitment

by

Annette Buchanan-Phillips

 

If poverty and deprivation are a strategic ploy to lure in victims; and or utilize the power of publicity; then how can the carrot move from out of the reach of the starving people, and into their hands? Of those who desire to help; is the response strategic, or a ploy of black, grey, and white propaganda?  Suffering which is designed for the strategic manipulation of the viewers at the expense of human lives is a tool.  Propaganda, which is true, false, or a mingling of truth and lies, is structured for believablity.  Help from the expected sources is held out of reach by a punitive stick.

If Oil money is so prevalent; why didn't the wealth get spread to enhance rather than destroy lives?  That would be a Psycho-Social approach to relieve suffering instead of creating it.  If some people really wanted world supremacy, and to promote their Religion as the "true" path, then why didn't they adhere to their Holy Book and give alms to those of their own poor. 

Many of the oppressed are already converted, are they all turned by fear and dread tactics; as opposed to "milk and honey"?  The base of "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs" pyramid indicates certain markers which when forestalled or interrupted, cause advancing beyond basic survival nearly impossible.  That anchors one to poverty, its lifestyle and its stresses.

Encouraging Whistleblowing

Annette Buchanan-Phillips IRN:4402180549

Marcos A. Carreras, PhD: Facilitator-I/O Psych 700

 

                Employee well-being has a direct correlation to productivity, in studies such as the "Hawthorne Effect" it was proven that the amount of light in the workplace had less of an effect on workers than their mood.  Their mood was effected by the amount and degree of light in the workplace.  So therefore it can be said that emotional well being was proportional to the intensity and hours of light which led to discovery of SAD; or Seasonal Affective Disorder.  In the same context it further suggests that emotional satisfaction hinges on job satisfaction, feelings of autonomy and tasks to job objectives and description. 

                The part of the data, that relates to whistleblowing is not only job autonomy, but job satisfaction; but not one without the other.  Job autonomy was also linked to Job Satisfaction and productivity in the motivational theory  of Maslow in that with ample pay to satisfy basic needs, and rewards plus incentives to strive for excellence then people work to fulfill the excellence prophecy.  They see themselves as valuable, and admirable in their job performasnce role. 

                Further, Gustafson & Mumford (1995) determined that individual personality also contributes to job satisfaction, and that it goes beyond description or pay and incentives which highlights fitting the right person for the job.  However, the most conclusive indicator to job satisfaction was improved productivity of those who work alone. 

                Working alone leads to less interpersonal conflicts with direct subordinates and superiors.  It makes one able to provide dietary and environmental comfort; and therefore less complaints.  In the context of whistleblowing, the complaints would be about processes or system defects, glitches and security compromises rather than petty personality conflicts. 

                Those that need to make such reports should never have to substantiate them.  Instead, investigations are conducted by systems and facilities security placed into the job performance area, as co-workers who mirror the situations and circumstances of the complainant in order to duplicate, substantiate or disprove results.

                When workers are more autonomous and feel secure that their anonymity will be protected, they will be more likely to assist an organization in rooting out difficulties, by whistleblowing.

Citation: My argument in Durban was that Africans have to lead Africa out of poverty. To those who say that Africa is hopeless, we say Africa matters, as the Prime Minister did earlier this month. But nobody can do Africa's work for it. Without proper governance and functioning institutions, the rule of law and a free press, no amount of overseas aid will succeed in lifting Africa. Put the basics in place, and the rest of the world needs to do its job through mutually agreed goals and strategies, not ex cathedra conditions and policies dreamt up in the IMF and World Bank and imposed on unwilling recipients. If Africa does not want to be marginalised by globalisation, it must endorse the terms of globalisation and realise that international investor confidence is governed by one set of rules, not altruism directed at one particular continent.

BODY:

 

 

John Kampfner's thoughtful reflection on contemporary Israel ("Lulled by the good life", 26 November) provided an excellent metaphor for the complacency of the west as a whole. Our economic prosperity, like that of Israel, depends on our continued control of plundered resources. Those not equipped to resist our greed are kept outside our laager. With no sense of irony, we proclaim the virtues of "democracy", neglecting to notice that, on our tiny planet, the impoverished majority are disenfranchised by our exclusive electoral roll. Like Israel, we seek long-term security through tough anti-terrorism strategies rather than through a more equitable sharing of the world's resources.

Where the Ladder Begins

 

 

The Effects of Poverty; Where the Ladder Begins

 

by

 

Annette Buchanan-Phillips, MA, PhD

 

 

 

 

 

 

Abstract

This paper will discuss the effects of alleviating poverty using the approach of a model of Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs pyramid.  Each of the five levels of this theoretical model, describes needs based motivation to satisfy the physiological needs, safety needs, love and belonging needs, esteem needs, and the need for self actualization.  For this analysis I will use a hypothetical community.  For this purpose we will call it “Utopiapolis”, and it is constructed as a “Maslowian” society. 

 

Physiological Needs Fulfillment

 

The needs described at this level are;” breathing, food, water, sex, sleep, homeostasis, excretion,” these are human life support and survival requirements.  In our mythical land, of ‘Utopiapolis’ we make these our top national priority.  Clean air, food, and water are provided and facilitated by the government.  In cases of homelessness, there are temporary housing like Yurts or Mobile homes in Government owned lands available.  Solar energy is used for water purification, and food production as well as for homes and transportation. 

 

Safety Needs Fulfillment

 

“Security of body, employment, resources, morality, the family, health, and property” are the specifics addressed in this area.  In Utopiapolis people can choose their academic and vocational path.  Once they have been certified in their profession or funded start-up capital or invested for invention, the person begins to work as they choose.   Some people may want to work to solve the country’s problems.  Some people may want to manufacture, the designs and invents of others.  Some will operate establishments, of their own talents; or manage talents of others.  

Citizens are allowed to choose land grants to pursue agriculture if they don’t own land; or purchase public or private land. 

People who are inclined to Healthcare, can be supported in that area, with schools providing limited clinical free services and paid services by licensed professionals.  Every effort is made to offer help of emotional, physical and economic sustainable solutions for family supports.  Empowering individuals bolsters national gross domestic product growth and production; and the tax base which sustains government services, and benefits.  Employment opportunities in government are in sustaining, maintenance, and National Objectives, goals, and output by the growth and development of Innovations and Solutions.

 

The Need for Love & Belonging

 

The need for friendship, family, and sexual intimacy, are the premises of this level of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs Pyramid.  As previously stated; Utopiapolis is engaged in integrated and self sustaining and supporting protocols and processes.  All citizens enjoy discounted or subsidized ownership of manufactured products including transportation.  Personal vehicles and utility vehicles are necessary to support commerce, and manufacturing as well as safety and free enterprise.  The elevation of this level of the Pyramid, facilitates the mobility through the entire construct.  Abraham Maslow, provides a plan to create a well balanced and self sustaining society.   While family, and friendship seem intensely personal at first glance, the quality of those interactions are changed greatly when people experience un-fulfillment of safety and physiological life supports.  The community assists the personal interactions, satisfying some of the basic human needs. 

 

The Need for Esteem

 

In this section of the Pyramid, “self-esteem, confidence, achievement, respect of others, and respect by others” are addressed.   Moral development is personal but it does not grow or exist in a vacuum.  Yet in “Utopiapolis” the culture is designed to encourage and support an optimal environment for self esteem to manifest itself and flourish.  Self-esteem begets the confidence, that success cultivates, which is an outgrowth of achievement.  Achievement, that is acknowledged, inspires the respect of others. Consequently, once people see themselves as valuable potential human resources, they gain respect by others.   As citizens identify with their own potential for the same outcomes, the cycle of success becomes reciprocal. 

The branding and belonging in the business corporate environment occurs by much the same method.  Identifiers that evoke admiration, become symbols of achievement, and brand; like sales prizes that bear the company logo.

 

The Need for Self-Actualization

 

The goals of self-actualization are “morality, creativity, spontaneity, problem solving, lack of prejudice, and acceptance of facts.”   Every other realm of this pyramid allows of the self expression mentioned and described as self-actualization.  I propose that all levels are interactive, and integrated.  Once people feel secure, even in temporary living conditions; homeostasis works to manifest itself.  It is built into the human being as a survival and evolutionary defense mechanism.  As Charles Darwin noted in his work on Natural Selection and Survival of the Fittest; human beings are equipped to return to homeostasis, or a healthy ‘norm’ state of being. 

Optimal human resource performance, is best achieved when survival needs are not an issue. 

Utopiapolis recognized that fact in the planning of its “intelligent society”.

 

Summary

 

Any society can be Utopiapolis.  There is such a pool of talent, ideas, and innovation available to humanity now that we are running out of excuses for not solving our own problems.
