“Give me a lever and a place to stand and I will move the earth.” -- Archimedes
“The stakes are too high: our era is too complex, its challenges too significant, its promises too great, and its velocity too fast for us simply to react. Rather we must amplify the power of our brains, individually and collectively, to match our new circumstances.” -- Eamonn Kelly – Powerful Times
"[Y]ou can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something -- your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life." -- Steve Jobs, Stanford University commencement address, June 2005.Steve Jobs’ quote gives us another insight into the common sense of Jobsism that matches our current circumstance as defined by Eamonn Kelly. That quote tell us how to go Where the Magic Happens. Archimedes’s level is reinterpreted below as a systemic leverage that is available in Dominican Republic electricity sector to help start to change the world giving an example of how to reduce inequality with great markets that are fair under great capitalism.

This is the first draft of the translation (with an upgrade on the title based on Jim Collins's book Good to Great) of the post Vean como el Pacto Eléctrico dominicano puede servir para empezar a cambiar la desigualdad en el mundo (See how the Dominican Electrical Pact may serve to start changing inequality in the world).

As you can see next, covered in the background I have been pinning on Twitter, especially since I pinned the post Innovación: puerta al progreso (Innovation: Gateway to progress) in April 2014, the Dominican Electrical Pact may serve to dissolve the Fiscal Pact and redirect the Educational Pact. However, in order not to waste our extended systemic crisis of the electricity sector, the biggest opportunity that offers the same is as systemic leverage to transform the world helping enable the arrival of the first Golden Age of the systemic civilization. Otherwise the rich will be richer and the poor poorer, as anticipated and reiterated by Piketty believing that the future will be a continuation of the past.
The answer to the post ¿Querrán las autoridades del statu quo vencer sin poder convencer a los demás en el Pacto Eléctrico? (Will the authorities of the statu quo win without being able to convince the others in the Electricity Pact?), which solves the aforementioned systemic crisis, also offers, for example, a support, such as that identified Archimedes, to change the myopic energy crisis that the status quo of industrial civilization continues to impose to the world. Such is the systemic leverage we have available at this historic moment comparable with the discovery of America, which relies on, the axiom what’s most systemic, is most local.
It should be more than obvious, that with the current strategy of terrain, that maintains the status quo of virtually every country in the world in the Comfort Zone, it is not only impossible to solve local crisis, but to maintain inequality in all these countries that is taking us to the 2nd Middle Ages primarily using the dark side of technology. To drive such systemic leverage is mandatory switching to a strategy of trajectory leading to Where the Magic Happens thanks to the existence of the Systemic Civilization that enables to establish a new world order.
At the center of all systemic crisis, not just the energy one, is the State-market dilemma, that continuous to manifests itself, for example, in the recent Democratic State of the Union address by President Obama and the backlash it received from Republicans. The Democratic part of this dilemma, which stems from the idea that the state should correct market failures, clearly shows how these markets are mediocre (good on Collins’s book title) on the part of the Republicans. Such a dilemma is dissolved with the arrival of the great markets, when we change from the sense of Fordism corrupted by Feudalism, which induces this dilemma, to the common sense of Jobsism that dissolves it.
By changing civilization these market failures disappear with the development of great markets by implementing scalable learning Where the Magic Happens replacing scalable efficiency corresponding to the Comfort Zone. The result of such disappearance eliminates the justification of the State on markets interventions and that as a result involve mounting debts that affects many states.
That is also how the Dominican need the Fiscal Pact gets dissolved, serving as an example to the world to change short-term financial capital with long-term productive capital, with companies competing with wisdom on great markets. Equally institutional innovation that leads to scalable learning serves to redirect the Educational Pact.
