Creative problem solving starts with the problem. The problem in this case is how and where to invest the money? What to do with the power and wealth?
Many different theories exist where to invest money or how to save the world and make a profit. I am going to create my own solution. In this century we are more than ever preoccupied with the exploitation of natural resources, the scarcity of water and other non-renewable resources. With additional concerns about the climate change, it is obvious that we need to change a lot of things. In order to save the world with its exponential growth of population and bigger consumption of raw materials I will provide the gold, iridium, platinum, silver, osmium, iron, cobalt, aluminum, magnesium and other important raw materials that are used today in the production of essential thing we need. I will use my resources to save the world of worries about the raw materials. I decided to start investing in the asteroid mining.
It is not all about the money. By focusing on the mining on the asteroids I will employ new work force and give many citizens opportunities to work in a good company with a good climate and atmosphere. The employees will get granites to participate in the mining of the raw materials on the asteroids. There are many cases where the people got money for free, but did not appreciate it and therefore did act economically with it. The example that supports my previous statement is gambling. No money will be given to charity or for free. There will be an opportunity for all that want to work and earn the money. The company will be in it to guarantee the development and progress of the nation. First, the investment in the current problems connected with the asteroid mining such as the extraction technique and targeting selection will be made. The fighting against natural resources could stop. I would implement the scheme that would distribute the money among the workers.
Employees will therefore have a good chance to earn money and be a participant in the new era of mining the raw materials. The profit that will be made in the future will be used for opening new facilities that will provide people work all around the world not just in the United States. The world will become more productive and also with the work and salary the standard of living will go up and with it also the education and awareness about the importance of preservation of earth the only planet we know is livable in the whole universe. From the company the framework how to employee and educate the whole global population will be slowly implemented. With the basic needs covered there will be no war, no disagreements that could lead to greater conflicts, no fighting about natural resources since the world will start to acknowledge that the growth of the population needs to be stopped and that we need to change our customs and our values towards environmental friendly actions.
The United States law stands behind me since all the companies have the right to mine and retrieved the materials from the asteroids or other celestial bodies (Griffin, 2015). With finding possible new raw materials that could replace the oil and other pollutant we would be making a huge development towards sustainability. That would result in power reduction of some states and make the world more equal and not divided on the developed and developing one or democratic and undemocratic countries. The basic factors that cause disputes, disagreements and wars will be addressed and with the wider support the world we know today where inequality, poverty, hunger, scarcity of natural resources, no possibility of education shape our way of living will be forgotten. The possibility on unlimited resources will come true. All steps of the creative resolving conflict will be used. First with the declaration of problem that is hidden behind the asteroid mining is saving the world from apocalypse. The research of the problem has been made in order to achieve the desired goals. The challenges have been formulated with various problems the asteroid mining still needs to resolve in order to become a reality. The ideas on how to achieve that and what will the policy behind it lie to promote the human well-being. The action plan what to do with the money has also been made. All we need now is to start to make our idea into practice.
