The App-Based Economy.

Money is no longer power. Time is power.

Who has time for anything any more?

The American economy has begun a shift to an app-based economy.

What does that mean?

Manufacturing has moved through the global economy and into other nations. Meanwhile, America has explored its service-based economy, then moved into its information-based economy, which is where it is now. This economy exists in smaller parcels--small businesses, start-ups--rather than in factories and networks of manufacturing systems. Businesses are savvy about specialization. The survivors know who uses them, when, how, and why.

Businesses are now apps. And apps are created in a cottage industry of independent workers. The American economy has come full circle to the home worker creating and selling items, this time online and mobile.

All fine and well, you say, but what are the poor people doing this season?

Who has the time to answer that question, anyway?
