How to find sources of profit

The main sources of profit change as the economic level changes. We are now moving from the fourth economic level to the fifth. Accordingly, very soon a good profit will be able to have only businesses that are engaged in the creation of goods and services of the fifth economic level.

Sources of profit in modern conditions

The levels of the economy are called sectors. Currently, there are 5 sectors: primary, secondary, tertiary, Quaternary, fivefold. At different times, each of these sectors was the “engine of the economy” and gave the owner of the corresponding assets wealth and power, acted as a source of profit, power and recognition.

With the change of the economic level, the distribution of power, the sources of profit, the model of behavior of the buyer changed. Sometimes the power remained with the former people, if they had time to adapt, but very often they were replaced by completely different people, because the former “powers that be” could not always and wanted to adapt to new conditions.

The first was the primary sector of the economy, which includes agriculture and mining. On the primary sector of the economy was based the economy of human communities in fact until the XVII century, and in some places later. Even now, in Africa, you can find communities living at the first level of the economy.

These people were the elite and had the highest standard of living

It was the owners of the assets of the primary sector of the economy, and these included land, agricultural land, forests, mines, and the like, that during the” reign ” of this sector were the richest and most influential, because they controlled the sources of profit. These people were the elite and had the highest standard of living.

The next was the secondary sector of the economy, which includes the processing industry. The emergence of this sector marked the emergence of a new type of economy – the industrial economy. The people who owned the assets of this sector became the elite, because they controlled the new sources of profit.

The XX century was marked by the emergence of a new sector of the economy. It is easy to guess that it was the tertiary sector, which was built over the secondary. The sources of profit went to the businessmen who owned the assets of this sector. This sector includes the production of services, technology, software and other intangible assets.

All who could not adapt very quickly lost previously acquired

This also includes logistics and optimization of financial flows, for example through offshore companies. Again, as with the previous change in the type of economy, all those who did not realize that it had changed were ruined. In addition, power passed to those who represented the tertiary sector. All who could not adapt very quickly lost previously acquired.

From about the 80 – ies of the XX century, the tertiary sector began to gradually lose ground, and in the last decade of this century, it completely lost their Quaternary sector. The Quaternary sector includes the creation of fundamental results, the formation of the skill level of employees, as well as the commercialization of new ideas.

The Quaternary sector is now the most promising and profitable. But it did not remain dominant for long, because it is assumed that in 2020-2030, the top five sector will come out in the first place, associated with the formation of motivation. But so far, the Quaternary sector is still dominant. All sources of profit are located in it.

It is due to this sector that the first three sectors of the economy are subsidized, which have become unprofitable everywhere

It is due to this sector that the first three sectors of the economy are subsidized, which have become unprofitable everywhere. In General, if we consider the economy in global terms, we find quite a clear pattern. It manifests itself in the fact that the business associated with the primary sector, after it has lost its importance, has become unprofitable everywhere.

In developed countries, we see huge amounts of subsidies to agriculture and extractive industries. If we consider the countries based on the primary sector of the economy, and these are the countries of Africa, some countries of Latin America and even the CIS, it is obvious that they are actually on the subsidies of the countries that are most developed in economic terms.

Subsidies as sources of profit
Subsidies as sources of profit

A similar situation has emerged recently in the industrial sector of the economy. The industrial sectors of the economy in the developed countries of the world, in fact, are also subsidized. Take, for example, the automotive industry, a symbol of the industrial age. So it is already from the late 70-ies subsidized by billions of us dollars.

In today’s economy the main sources of profit are in the Quaternary sector

The only exceptions are companies that have post-industrial elements. They have maintained their profitability, but in fact the industrial part of these companies is subsidized by the post-industrial part. One of the best examples is Porsche, which earns more than others from the sale of one car due to the post-industrial component.

In the modern economy, the main sources of profit are in the Quaternary sector. However, in some industries, the tertiary sector is still profitable. Within its framework, the products are: software, qualified services, technologies, products of mass culture, Finance, including the world reserve currency-the US dollar.

It is due to the profits received in high sectors of the world economy that lower sectors of the economy are subsidized, and on a global scale. This means that more developed countries subsidize less developed ones. Subsidization occurs because there is a need for products of low sectors, even though their production does not bring profit.

This is the reason for the current problems of business based on outdated assumptions

In the countries of the former Soviet Union, everything turned out so that representatives of the secondary, i.e. the industrial sector of the economy, became at the helm of many companies. Such companies were the vast majority, and, therefore, the norm was to assume that industry, and sometimes agriculture – the most productive force. It was a big mistake.

For some time industry and agriculture still made some profits, but they were diminishing and diminishing. This is the reason for the current problems of business based on outdated assumptions. In fact, such a business has to work with something that does not make a profit a priori. Income brings, and profits there is no.

The best sources of profit

The problem of industrial enterprises is that they have products, but they do not have the component characteristic of high-end sectors of the economy. Therefore, you can only sell it cheap. Sources of profit for such companies are not available, they can not get it in principle. Such enterprises can exist only at the expense of external subsidies.

EMarketing is a tool of product promotion high sectors of the economy that makes a profit

To live at the expense of subsidies is not the only solution. A better solution is to start producing and selling products using technologies from high-tech sectors of the economy. One of these technologies – eMarketing. EMarketing is a tool of product promotion high sectors of the economy that makes a profit.

High sectors operate on the principles of noomarketing, and for this reason only through its use can we conduct effective work in them. So, if you want Your business to be effective, if you want it to bring profits, not losses, master noomarketing, or ask for help from those who own it.
