Sparked by this topic, I think we need to roll out a plan to secure world domination for Fairphone within the next decade. It wouldwill make it so much easier for Fairphone to reach their ultimate goals of fairness and environmental friendliness.
Step 1:@ben says Fairphone has to buy Mediatek after Fairphone 2 has become a wild success in the next years.
Step 2:@paulakreuzer suggests to continue the shopping spree by generating limitless funds and purchasing Apple and Google.
Step 3: Success.
Have I missed anything? It can only be minor details. The plan sounds future proof
Yeah, the name probably has to be improved yet… What about: “Operation Robin Hood” or “FAIRevolution” ?
About buying Mediatek: They issued 1.500 million shares, each 12,5 € (434 TW) in value. So if every one of the 60.000 FP1(U) owners would buy shares in the value of about 150.000€, we could afford to buy 50% of Mediatek and gain decisive power. Luckily, there are another 200.000 FP2 owners coming up, who will be happy to help us FP1(U) owners out: It’s only 36.000 € per person then!!! Come on, that’s affordable, it’s only about the value of a mid-class-car!
Hi. While this topic is more than a year old, I think it is of timeless importance until the goal is reached.
About the naming. I also thought about “world domination” but I think it is in fact more about “world market domination”.
I also think it is great that this plan is transparently discussed in a public forum here and not in some dusty back room or the top floor of the FP tower. This matches the FP idea and noone can later say that it was a secret plot and that nobody saw it coming.
Instead of buying Mediatek, Google and Apple, wouldn’t it be cheaper to buy all the mines (or to be realistic – according to this thread anyway – the major ones?) and become the sole supplier of minerals (which would then all be conflict-free!).
I think it is absolutely feasible, also some of us would have to sleep with some people to get there.
