      AFRONOMICS: New Economic Movement

      AFRONOMICS - " 'cause freedom AIN'T free!"

      “Dealing with the white man economically is one of the things we’re teaching brothers through the [BEU] (Black Economic Union). See, we believe that the closest you can get to independence in a capitalist country is financial independence. See, we’ve got to find a way to stop begging, just like we’ve got to stop wasting all our energy and money marching and picketing and doing things like camping-in in Washington on a Poor People’s Campaign. They didn’t accomplish a single thing down there. They got a little attention and lots of condescending pats on the back from white liberals who wanted them keep as quiet as possible and hurry up and get out of town. That’s all… We’ve got to get off the emotional stuff and do something that will bring about real change. We’ve got to have industries, commercial enterprises and build our own sustaining economic base. Then we can face white folks man-to-man and we can deal.”

      - NFL Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown from 1968 EBONY Magazine
      JIM BROWN: THE FIERCE LIFE OF AN AMERICAN HERO
      by Mike Freeman (pg. 15-16)


      “We must begin at the cradle and teach our babies that they must do something for self. They must not be like we, their fathers, who look to the slave-makers' and the slave-masters' children for all. We must teach our children now with an enthusiasm exceeding that which our slave-masters used in having our forefathers embed the seed of dependency within us. We must stop the process of giving our brainpower, labor and wealth to our slave-masters' children. We must eliminate the master-slave relationship.”

      -The Honorable Elijah Muhammad
      MESSAGE TO THE BLACKMAN IN AMERICA

      Q: What is Afronomics?

      A: AFRONOMICS is the study and CONSISTENT PRACTICE of sound economic principles through an African-centered paradigm on a personal and collective level.

      AFRONOMICS is built on 12 Points/Principles that addresses the economic issues of African people on a personal and collective level.

      1. We want African people to practice the 10% and 20% Rules (PAY YOURSELF FIRST!)

      2. We want African people to give 10% of their income to “race first” organizations committed to African people (e.g., UNIA-ACL, etc.)

      3. We want African people to save and convert 20% of their annual salary each year into a source of revenue beyond employment (millionaires have an average of seven revenue streams)

      4. We want African people to create a S.I.T.E.S. account for themselves and/or their families (Savings, Investments, Tithing, Education, Startup Capital)

      5. We want African people to spend 5-25% of income with black-owned businesses

      6. We want African people to invest 15-20 hours per week researching various wealth building opportunities

      7. We want African people to develop a monthly household budget and personal financial statement for each person in the household (“Know Your $”)

      8. We want African people to practice economic synergy in their business life.

      9. We want African people to study and apply the economic philosophies and models of Marcus Garvey, A.G. Gaston. Elijah Muhammad and Booker T. Washington to their business and financial lives

      10. We want African people to teach their children to become producers through entrepreneurial ventures.

      11. We want African people to create susus in their homes and communities

      12. We want African people to invest in their primary asset – THE HUMAN MIND
