The VALUE doesn't stop here, since presumably these endeavors are producing some kind of output in the biz sometimes music is Magic or not so much; However! each time it's Intellectual Property and the mere act of is (if you've been reading by blog) just raised the whole GPD of the USA by upwards of 3 percent.
So, as the demand for American music is growing (Ad Hoc - since music is something that everyone on the planet and perhaps others experience. Ergo Hoc in case you didn't know it there are more customers every day. Proctor Hoc more people to make more music. DUH [homersimpson voice])
I'm not sure why I would have to pitch USMADEMUSIC to US leadership however I do and under the current Administration we are on track to become a NET Importer of Music into the USA. Again, let me let this sink in we will have more CD's shipped into the USA then we ship out.
HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE THE BIGGEST RECORDING STARS and we're becoming a net IMPORTER come back for that blog too.So while I'm sure all the tech incubator are full on powerpoint and fluff blogs the WORLD revolves around music and thanks to our lack of leadership USMADEMUSIC is only 10 percent of it. Again let this SINK in.
IMHO more music is needed here and around the world we do nothing to support meeting this demand. And, all of the jobs and educational investment to day has gotten us this.
The "raw" average wage, computed as net compensation divided by the number of wage earners, is $6,529,097,960,690.75 divided by 153,632,290, or $42,498.21. Based on data in the table below, about 67.1 percent of wage earners had net compensation less than or equal to the $42,498.21 raw average wage. By definition, 50 percent of wage earners had net compensation less than or equal to the median wage, which is estimated to be $27,519.10 for 2012. http://www.ssa.gov/cgi-bin/netcomp.cgi?year=2012
Again, Leaders are pouring money hand over fist into Job training however it doesn't include STEAM. Proof is in the budget that Washington and your home towns put out and there's very little is for the Arts. I've blogged about this...see here; However, I'ma gonna do another one on it because there is more so... come back for that blog too.
I'd love to hear from someone in the US as to why we're not beating drums and talking about building upon USMADEMUSIC. Since the average wage is better and it comes with groupies (that go out and spend money. I know we can do better, we deserve better and frankly the world needs USMADEMUSIC.
THINK about this Amerika it will keep to the politicians out of defining who we are as a nation overseas and that mostly tasseless and valueless Major Record Label music (aka part of a Multinational Corporation ) ya know they've haliburtonized the US Record Biz!
Let's face I'd rater have Doyle Wolf Gang Von FrankenStein then Joe WolfGang Biden reppin me in China. come back for that blog too
