Re: [MISP] How 'bout this?

This is NOT what I'm proposing ...except for the cooperative aspect. I'd like to see experienced professionals with actual industry credits ally for the express purpose of commercial (that's for  profit but not 'non-artistic' or socially unworthy) product creation and gainful employment. Side benefits would include education and training, advertising and promotion of the the state and its resources, and a permanent and prominent place in world media.
stated in the most directed manner: if you think small, don't do it at all.

Actors are contemplating going on strike ...and most of them aren't working. This indicates a sense of self worth. Unions were formed to amass and demonstrate power. Any successful performer creates his or her own company to foment work and direct destiny. All of these have the underlying belief, "I have value." Folks, New Mexico IS reinventing itself and creating a new image to bury the humbly going to the patron, sombrero in hand, for the favor of being exploited. We cannot rely on government, its unpredictable and mercurial whims nor should we stake a future on economic advantage packages that can and are copied by other states and countries or, as is being demonstrated, can be terminated with almost no notice at any time.
