ASK Consulting, LLC (ASK) was organized in 2009 as a platform to assemble personnel and resources to develop economic education programs and personalized planning programs, services, and products to mitigate productive Americans’ and 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations’ Great Recession losses. Productive Americans experienced losses of $4.7 trillion of stock market equity and $6 trillion of real estate equity. In addition, 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations had experienced significant losses of endowment assets as a result of the Great Recession.
In 2010 ASK assumed sponsorship of four decades-long research projects, the Economics of Life Research Project, the Doctors Economic Research Project, the Agent of Progress Research Project, and the Permanent Endowment Program Research Project and retained experienced financial services industry consultants to work with the researchers to develop a strategic plan and plan implementation capabilities. The results of their efforts were the development of the Progress Project Strategic Plan and the development of the New Economic Order Planning Program to implement the Progress Project Strategic Plan. The New Economic Order Planning Program provided economic education programs, guaranteed outcome earnings management, savings management, and endowment creation planning programs to recover productive Americans’ Great Recession losses of $4.7 trillion of stock market equity and $6 trillion of real estate equity, and to help Millennials and GenXer’s protect themselves against catastrophic losses and achieve financial independence and personal significance. In addition, the New Economic Order Planning Program provided an endowment creation planning program to mitigate 501 (c) 3 non-profit organizations’ losses of endowment funds.
Research project findings indicated that the old, pre-Great Recession economic order had been disrupted, stock market risk management strategies had failed, debt creation strategies to fund home ownership had failed, and a new, post-Great Recession economic order requiring new, guaranteed outcome planning and investment strategies and supporting financial instruments had begun.
Market values had almost returned to 2009 levels in 2019 when the Covid 19 Pandemic caused market losses of 30%. Great Recession losses were exacerbated by Pandemic losses.
ASK owns the Progress Project and New Economic Order Planning Program intellectual property and retains a group of experienced financial services industry consultants trained in the New Economic Order Planning Program principles to support the expansion of the New Economic Order Planning Program across the U.S. ASK intends to provide research and development and consulting services to a strategic partner who acquires the Progress Project/New Economic Order Planning Program and related intellectual property to accelerate the national expansion of the Capital Accumulation, Capital Distribution, and Endowment Creation Planning Programs.
