In muchrepparttar same way,repparttar 125601 revolution that is underway now is also to do withrepparttar 125602 spread of information. The 'culprit' now of course beingrepparttar 125603 computer chip, or more preciselyrepparttar 125604 personal computer. Once, allrepparttar 125605 information and power was inrepparttar 125606 hands of governments and large institutions. Now everyone has it. This will impact in major ways on economic structures, on working methods and on social structures.

We already know thatrepparttar 125607 world's economies are in crisis and that whole countries are virtually broke. Powerful countries likerepparttar 125608 US are so heavily in debt that by 1995, 57% of tax revenue was needed just to payrepparttar 125609 interest on its loans. The UK, Germany and Canada are also in serious trouble and they are not alone. Japan is more heavily in debt even thanrepparttar 125610 US and will contribute torepparttar 125611 other's worsening situation when it tries to off-load its interests.

What happens when you and I can't pay our debts is that we don't get any more credit and go bankrupt. When it is a major government, they haverepparttar 125612 option of printing money (yes, don't we all wish). That leads to inflation, rising interest rates andrepparttar 125613 then value ofrepparttar 125614 money becomes totally worthless.

Part ofrepparttar 125615 result that will affectrepparttar 125616 ordinary person will berepparttar 125617 collapse of infrastructures such asrepparttar 125618 welfare state. We can already see howrepparttar 125619 UK National Health system is in serious decline, underlined byrepparttar 125620 recent reports ofrepparttar 125621 child that died, kept alive for 18 months by private donations afterrepparttar 125622 National Health had decreed that it wasn't worth it to give her any further treatment. Fundamental health decisions will continue to be made on such economic basis. Forrepparttar 125623 same reasons and because of people's greater life expectancy, governments will not be able to fulfil pension obligations. These sorts of basic aid will end up going only torepparttar 125624 most needy.

Afterrepparttar 125625 technological revolution,repparttar 125626 only way to survive this economic revolution will be to return to old ways with a twist. Cottage industry (albeit hi-tech), self-sufficiency and bartering. This revolution will inevitably bring about much social unrest so those of us that live in relatively safer areas will also be at an early advantage. The technology at least means we can work anywhere. Those that will survive best will be those with skills that they can adapt to making their own living.

I do not feel that it is any coincidence that many ofrepparttar 125627 'new' ways of living will also be better forrepparttar 125628 planet's environment. I believe that these cycles are intrinsically linked. Think of how many people you know that survive doing 'a bit of this and a bit of that'. If anyone is, we ought to be in a good position to survive intorepparttar 125629 next millennium.

This may seem time consuming to some of you but I must insist that you considerrepparttar consequences. If you spend your clients ad dollars on websites that haverepparttar 125600 potential to over inflate their trafficking numbers then you haverepparttar 125601 potential to loose a client. Treat your client's money like your own money and learn where it is going and learn about what sites it will be spent upon.

I have run into roadblocks while seeking this information. Some networks see you as "just another customer" and if you being asking questions that they do not have a canned response for, they may begin to focus on easier customers. The key here is to be persistent. Explain torepparttar 125602 network that you are not going to makerepparttar 125603 network money without answers to your questions. Many networks nowadays, particularly DoubleClick, have so many clients that they may not perceive you as important - when compared to PepsiCo who is spending millions a month with them. You need to open your mouth and use your voice and do not hesitate to switch to another sales rep at that network. The people working atrepparttar 125604 networks work on commission and if you threaten to shrink their wallet, they suddenly become more attentive to your concerns and needs.

Be sure to write everything down and try to verifyrepparttar 125605 information that is given to you. Just because a website claims that they are audited by ABC Interactive does not necessarily mean that they genuinely are. Callrepparttar 125606 supposed auditing agency and verify their relationship withrepparttar 125607 website. Do some investigative work to ensurerepparttar 125608 facts are indeed facts and not fiction.

Just remember, it is a wild Internet right now and there is a great deal of money to be made or lost. Regardless of your capacity in purchasing online advertisements, it is your responsibility to spend that money in a wise manner. Scrutinize your ad buys and scrutinize whom you deal with. If a company is honest then they will have nothing to hide from you. If a company is dishonest then your simple investigative work should not only save your reputation bur ad dollars as well - and in this digital economy ROI is all that matters.
