Statement for the Museum of Business Commerce and Wealth
The tripartite focus of this museum will be: business (small and large) and their histories; penultimately, corporations that have metamorphosed into huge conglomerates and transnationals; and, ultimately, enterprising individuals who by dint of hard work and brains, have created companies and amassed impressive wealth. The museum will assuredly posit no graceless "lifestyle of the rich and famous" ethos, but, will be more a place for the robust inquiry into the role that businesses and companies have had on the lives of the citizenry. Moreover, it will look at the democratic impulses that have animated the wealthy.
The last century and millennium witnessed the remarkable and triumphant rise of commerce and its concomitant: wealth.
The creation of both have occurred principally in liberal, relaxed democratic societies, seedbed of wealth. Aside from the usual brick and mortar building the museum will be a virtual one, with a significant cyber presence. Committed as it is to the scholarly study of business, commerce and wealth, the museum will partner with all educational institutes and organizations (on six continents) to mount exhibits and promote learning. The financial underpinning for the museum will come from all sources of good will: individuals, groups, companies, organizations and governments.
Museum of Business, Commerce and Wealth is committed to the appreciation of the three subjects in its name, an as such will mount exhibits covering these areas:
