What is the best way to reach those who benefit the most from the economy of peace?

Germany and Japan: both Japan and Germany have had pacifists constitutions imposed on them after WWII .

German and Japan are our best allies because, in our modern time, both have first experienced the economy of peace through the absence or sharp diminution of military spending after 1945. 

Against their will, they have therefore been the first countries to live the benefits of the economy of peace.

They became the example of the “miracles” of market economy and reconstruction after the war. Their exports were rising dramatically as were their inner consumption.  Then, as the risk of war diminished on the cold war front, and because suppliers wanted more sales both Germany and Japan have seen their military budgets increase under US pressure,
This military spending increase has been very controversial and visible in both countries.

For example there are notable published stories about how failed sales or curbed sales of missile defense system to Germany, Japan, South Korea.

Never the less Japan and Germany have experienced the advantages of smaller military budgets as well as the push for more  military expenses under the pressure of fear from various perceived threats.  Both Germany and Japan are the places where the economy of peace has been confronted by an economy of war with market widening ambition.

In the United States and Europe:

Who among the benefiters of the invested capital needing peace and stability for their return will want to support research and advocacy for peace?

My feeling is to look first among capital owner and people who make decisions on what to do with it.

Among them are therefore finance managers and investment firms because they have an eye on returns and because peace makes more money longer,

I insist on peace makes more money, and I insist on longer, making more money longer.
The security of long term return on capital investment requires this approach.

So do the desire of the people who own the capital form whom the money is managed. 

I therefore appeal to pay great attention to how the economy of war is depleting public funds resources on which the market has to count for its development.

The subprime market crisis is a by everybody’s account due to the fall of real estate prices following a drop in housing purchase and following a rise in bad loans on real estate, people not being able to fulfill their mortgage payments.  That large amount of derivatives and swaps where built on real estate in the USA and around the world does not take away the fact that it is the demand for housing that fell first. Demand on housing fell directly because of the rise of poverty and the diminution of middle class in America.

Therefore, considering the very crucial impact of loss of demand on the economy, it seems reasonable to ask for more investments in infra-structure, human development investments, such as education, health care, social safety nets as well as natural resource managements investments and the correlated information tools they require for management, such as remote sensed data, social analysis and many others.

Superdog Institute should appeal to people with capital and to serious people like money managers with capital investment firms.

Superdog Institute works on explaining the dangers of the economy of war and the advantages of economy of peace.

Superdog Institute researches better ways to monitor progress and value on invested capital return as well as equity building.
