There is a huge potential for development of resources, infrastructures and people; and more importantly a tremendous potential to make a double digit return on investment for many years in a row.
There is a lot of cash around the world seeking for genuine, high potential and high return investment opportunities anywhere in the world. 4EPR presents a number of these convincing opportunities for the world to confidently invest.
The investment opportunities are multi-faceted. In addition to garnering a huge return, it also allows: investing in people and in the alleviation of poverty, and in the better protection and management of the environment or in the regeneration of the ecosystem.
The pie can be made very big. This means wealth can be created to make every genuine and working person wealthy and capable of earning enough to accomplish what they worked for. All it takes is to have a cooperative effort and unreserved participation in the 4EPR developmental programs and many others created along similar paths.
The huge infighting for control of the meagre resources in poor communities will be history whenever everyone is producing multi-fold and the shadow of poverty and destitution is eliminated. The world has been injecting hundreds of billions of dollars to save just few companies from collapse. With detailed and genuine plans, with comprehensively flushed out measures, billions of dollars of investment or borrowed funds can be attracted and turned into multi-fold value.
In Ethiopia alone over 60 million people are spending their day working hard using rudimentary tools to make just $1/day. If large scale investments are applied across the country in raising awareness and education, in diversified programs and in processes and tools for the people to use in multi-economic sectors, multi-fold rise in productivity will be achieved. As a result people’s earning potential can improve up to $10/day (a small fraction of what people make in developed countries), over 10 times increase in people’s earnings. This kind of transformation not only can pay back all the loans in a short time but also pays a huge return to trusting investors.
This will mean an improvement in the standard of living of the people and a reliable way of wiping out poverty once and forever. It also means better preparedness for dealing with the impact of severe draught whenever that happens.
This process will also create a completely independent, self-reliant and sustainable economy nation that can make diversified contributions to the world.
4EPR is about Let’s Urbanize, Let’s Industrialize and Let’s Modernize Agriculture and consequently invigorating all other economic and social sectors to bring about peaceful fundamental sustainable change.
THE KEY PRINCIPLES OF 4EPR
