I would never shave my beard off with a corn cob. 

Finally, a sensible post in this thread!  Thank you.  God bless you!!

I did try it once.  I prefer Dos Equis, though  ;D.

I believe there is a Schick Quattro Equis that may be good.  Or would you rather have a Dos Equus?   :laugh:
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

A local economy might even be the parish church and how to improve what comes in versus what goes out.

Sincerely, hello

Do any of you here at OC.net have any knowledge on how to build a local economy?...

Let's return.  Hmmmm.  For your purposes WPM, what is "knowledge," "local," or "economy"?  And more importanly, what are you trying to accomplish?  What is your goal or vision for your local community, city, or region?  Corncobs, katanas, and beer aside for the moment, of course. :laugh:  Well, not beer.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Definitely not beer.  Not even corncob beer.  I think he really wants to start-up a micro-brewery but just can't bring himself to admit it.  Sad, really. :(

There was a lot of potential. 
There would have been if the question was better defined.  If it was a topic on how a local government might develop an economy, that is much different than how a super rich guy might come in and build an economy or how some shlep who doesn't have a job might somehow develop a local economy. Is he looking for some sort of practical advice or economic theory?  Until you understand what he is asking, the thread is open game for standard silliness.

I hear moonshining is still a profitable business.  Make sure your customers don't go blind and you'll have repeat customers for life.

Where?

Do you have enough control of the environment to be able to achieve such a dream?

So a Utopia where there is no want?  Then there would be no need for cash.  Unless you win a huge lottery and your local community is really small, and you are willing to share it all with them, I don't see what you're proposing as anything but a fanciful dream.  Where does this sentiment come from, if you don't mind me asking?

For that to work, then everyone would have to get off of welfare and start working at a real job.

How would you go about doing 'xyz' to accomplish an economy that allows all residents to have cash, thus equalling no poverty?  How do you allow the fact that some will have more cash than others?

So local economy = your economy?   ???

If you can control your own money, you don't need anyone else to control your money.

A few issues:
1)  Everything is different from five seconds ago, more so five years ago.  What situation are you talking about?
2)  My parents don't control my money.  They haven't since I started working for my own money since I was 14.  If (a big if) they did, I would be doing my best to become independent as soon as I could.  In the meantime, be respectful and help them out around the house, do errands, etc.  Also, by "your,"  do you mean money that really belongs to parents for the use of the children or money that belongs to the child, but is controlled by the parents?

Are you that something?  Is that someone your parent?  You may have deeper issues than an almost-derailed thread can assist you with.

The point of being laconic is that the terse statements are pithy.  You are just being miserly with your info.  Do you have an actual question or any gathered thoughts to discuss?  Or should we just let Tri and JM get back to discussing alternate uses for corn cobs?

Its so I can ensure that I get the cash I need, and that has to do with local economy. Sorry I don't use high sounding intellectual church speak

English? ??? ??? ??? I guess I could copy and paste the Scripture in Greek if that'll help.  Heck, take a little cash, go to the gas station, and buy beer.  Maybe a hot dog too.  Not only have you proven to yourself that you have cash, but you have helped the local economy by injecting that cash into it.  Bravo!!!!  Now, back to corn cobs and horse meat.

Fortunately or unfortunately depending on your pov, the only way to get the cash you need is either to 1) get a job and work for it, 2)find something that you can produce or a service that you can provide that people need/want and are willing to pay for, and produce it or provide it (also work) or 3)rob a bank, convenience store or sell drugs (fairly high risk and dangerous).
Or you could inherit it from rich relatives, I suppose.

Have we ever gotten to the bottom of this OP?

I'm really curious as to what this concerns.

A local economy might even be the parish church and how to improve what comes in versus what goes out.


There was a lot of potential. 
There would have been if the question was better defined.  If it was a topic on how a local government might develop an economy, that is much different than how a super rich guy might come in and build an economy or how some shlep who doesn't have a job might somehow develop a local economy. Is he looking for some sort of practical advice or economic theory?  Until you understand what he is asking, the thread is open game for standard silliness.

I wasn't using any church speak there.  To ensure the cash you need, you just need to find a job and work until you save up enough money to buy what you need.  Most places, you can apply for entry level jobs right online.  Once you get your foot in the door, you can work your way up and make more money.
Guys! They're not intercoursing. It's just an unfortunate angle.

So you're suggesting it has to do with an efficiency product to sell on the market?..

Or any product that can make people's lives seem easier.

Do you have a job now?  If so, can you work more hours or are you able to find a second job?  If not, what kind of work is available in your area?
