Notes on Organizational Capacity and Density Patterns

Organizational capacity - in terms of corporate structure - is woefully incomplete. How so? Even though present day capacity has greatly benefited nations through international trade, the potential for organizational structure has scarcely been tapped, in places where it is needed most. As a result, local non tradable sectors have become burdened with excessive infrastructure costs and obligations, even as the benefits of tradable sectors continue to improve the global economy.

Today, a majority of time based coordination is informally generated, as a side benefit of other (economic) capacity which relies on the geographic spacing of modern transportation systems. However, this reliance also means that family and friends have been separated across the globe from one another. Not only can this be problematic in one's later years, it can be problematic for families and friends which seek economic means to remain closer to one another. Could societies provide the option of closely spaced skills diversity, for time based coordination patterns?

Contrary to what it may seem, this is possible, through the density coordinates which time arbitrage would make possible. Today's dispersed means of organizational capacity are not always easy to replicate, in the places where they are needed most. A better corporate response for living and working, would be to build tighter density patterns within a single local corporate framework: one capable of providing a full range of production and services interaction, under a single umbrella.

One of the most important questions to ask about organizational capacity is what income and other resource flows do groups seek to rely on, over long periods of time. Even though resource flows cannot always remain stable, organizational capacity needs to move in tandem with changes in resource use patterns, instead of reacting against them. This is particularly important in terms of infrastructure, local asset patterns and services formation.

Whereas an international corporation seeks to maximize potential in the global marketplace, the internally driven - or local corporation - would seek to maximize the marketplace potential of its inhabitants in terms of both production and consumption. In these settings, the tradable goods of the international marketplace would represent further options for time use freedom, rather than competition to local production. Plus, local citizens would not only take part in locally generated production and consumption patterns, but also in the basic definitions of local consumption models. By matching time value with investment and production capacity, no one need rely on time based compensation as the primary source of income.

Time value - rather than skills value - is the first point of economic entry, which takes place as services arbitrage. From this starting point, one gains access to the investment options for local building components. As the participant becomes comfortable with this level of investment, they gain both time based investment options and financial investment options, for local environment definition and infrastructure maintenance.

As one further progresses, financial investment options in services capital can augment personal skills sets. From this point, production capacity for some knowledge use systems would extend to markets beyond those that are local. Some of this focus could be for the support of other knowledge use systems, such as the travel environments that would be possible in "sister" communities. While there are many advantages and possibilities for internal corporate structure, possibly the best is simply that of a "permanent" timeline for ongoing economic activity and knowledge use.
