What harm do intermediaries do to the progress of the world
We have already talked about how intermediaries harm producers and buyers of products. The negative impact on production chains, which is exerted by intermediaries, is great, and it must be eliminated.
However, these questions arise quite often. They affect a narrow circle of people. And if we limit ourselves to the consideration only of such problems, it seems that the mediators cause very limited harm.
However, it is not so. The fact is that intermediary activities stifle the entire world economy and hinder technological progress.
Judge for yourselves, today there are many manufacturers who want to produce new products. They have a desire to improve the world and give customers something new, to promote technological progress.
But no manufacturer will do this if it does not make a profit. And the income will appear only when there are consumers.
To find out whether the market needs products, the manufacturer begins to conduct market research. And that's where the problems start.
The fact that intermediaries today occupy a position that allows them to dictate the parameters of products for suppliers. The opinion of the intermediaries replaces consumer preferences. Intermediaries are closer to the manufacturer than end-users. And companies that produce products communicate with intermediaries.
And those, in turn, are absolutely not interested in technological progress. They are satisfied with the current state of Affairs: they do not do anything useful, but get a stable income. At the same time, they are well aware that technological progress can knock the soil out of their feet. And they strongly discourage it.
Good to make it very simple. It is enough to inspire the manufacturer that innovative products are not in demand by the market and will not be sold. The company, which produces products, does not want to work at a loss, and will postpone the implementation of the project until better times.
But there is a demand for new products! However, information about this does not reach the manufacturer. Fortunately, today there are decentralized platforms for P2P-interaction. Using these platforms, the manufacturer will receive reliable information about the needs of the market from those who form this market - consumers. Ultimately, this will lead to breakthrough innovations and new developments in mass access.
One of the first such developments was the Yodse platform. This is a unique decentralized space for interaction between consumers and manufacturers. Yodse users will be able to contact each other directly and work without third parties.
