“5¢ a day + 16 million Black wage earners = $291 million in one year.
There is a cattle ranch in Texas with more than 70,000 acres, and they’re asking $34 million for it. With the pooling of our resources, we could buy it after only 7 weeks—with almost $7 million left to work with!

There is a 4,000-acre cotton farm available in Mississippi for $24 million. We could have it in less than 5 weeks if we put those nickels, dimes and dollars together! Then we could grow our own cotton and make our own clothing, making jobs for ourselves!

We would have enough to buy a shoe factory available in The Caribbean for only $1 million. And if we get that cattle company, we’ll have the leather to supply the shoe industry! 

These are just a few examples of what we can do with our pennies, nickels and dimes, because America is For Sale.

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue]“According to scripture, in what way do you think Jesus taught economic empowerment? Or was he against that?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red]”If we really understand the message of Jesus, and follow his teachings, you become morally better: So you don’t waste your money in sinful pursuit—which means you’ll have money to save, money to invest! 

And if you deepen your study of Jesus, you will find that his true teaching will guide you to economic independence!”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue] “So what is the best way right now that we can wage war against Monsanto and DuPont, beyond just protesting outside of their companies?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red] “Oh, join with us! Pooling our nickels and dimes and dollars to buy up as much land as we can, to purify that land of the effect of the chemicals of Monsanto, DuPont, Dow, BASF and Syngenta! That’s the way you fight them! http://economicblueprint.org/

But picketing them, demonstrating against them in front of their headquarters, is right as well.”

 

“If we are not the owners of land, and lots of it, then we will not be able to produce the things that we consume. So we will always be at the mercy of others who produce, and therefore we will be the consumer people rather than a productive people! 
And that is how people earn respect: by being productive.”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue]  “Is the investment of gold and silver part of the long-term plan of your Economic Blueprint, although I know land is the first priority?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red] “Land is the first priority—and the greatest of all priorities! 

So personally, one might want to have gold and silver; as the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, in the 1970s, placed a gold coin on the table, and he said: “In the future, this will be the medium of exchange.”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue]  “Similar to your transparency with The Million Man March, do you plan to be just as transparent with The Economic Blueprint? I’m an outside supporter, and I made a donation. I just wanted to know will you make the progress of what we raised available for viewing online?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red]  “Absolutely: Every nickel, every dime! You will know how we’re doing, and you will know when we start to make a move to purchase—you will know it all!”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue] “Who will directly profit from this Economic Blueprint Program? And if I stay in Kansas, how will this benefit me if the land and food is built somewhere else?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red]”You are benefiting right now from wherever the land is that is producing your food. You don’t have to be where the land is, but the land, and the development of agribusiness, will absolutely benefit us wherever we are! Because production of food means warehouses; it means trucks, it means supermarkets. It means all of those things that come from providing food! 

So it doesn’t’ matter where you are. Support The Economic Blueprint with the view in mind that The Aim of it is to benefit us, as well as others who want clean, wholesome food that sustains and maintains life.”

 

 

“Scientists have studied our buying habits so they know how to market their goods to us, and their data shows that we spend far too foolishly and recklessly, and we spend our money on products and services that are leading to our own self-destruction.
We have to cut back on the things that are killing us!”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue] “Brother Minister, for clarity, is giving to The Economic Blueprint like investing in stocks? People keep asking this to me. Or, is this like a charity given to a cause?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red] “Well, The Cause is ourselves. It’s not charity that you are not looking for a return on. The return on what we are investing is the production of food, clothing, shelter, that produces jobs, income, and other necessities of life.”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue]“Who is the ‘we’ that will own the land that is purchased? And if it includes ending poverty and want, does this include poor White people as well, or are you just starting with your own people, and it will branch out from there?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red] “Well, we have to start with our own people who are suffering. 

But if we opened a hospital, as many religious groups do: Could we turn down somebody who is sick because we opened it to serve Black people? No. When we work, we work first for ourselves, but we can never deny good to others who have need.”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue] “Do you think the closures of HBCUs are due to the institutions’ over-dependency on government help? Or do these closures relate to not investing in valuable land?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red] “Unfortunately, we who graduate from HBCUs, and have been blessed to be successful in our professional life, do not always remember our alma maters as others do. So, there is dependency on state government, and others, to help these schools to survive. But most schools now are liberal arts schools—so they have no interest in acquiring land, or utilizing land for economic development purposes.

Our hope is that in trying to provide some of the necessities of life—particularly food, which as a people we spend $60 billion a year on. And some of that money can return to us; that we may be the great support of these institutions that have been germane to our success in America.”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue] “Would you consider adding the name ‘Africa’ to the Muhammad Economic Blueprint, so that more people may join on to your program from where I am?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red]  “Our development in America will ultimately be a blessing for Africa! We are the most well-educated Black people on the Earth; so our education should be put to work to do something for self, but also, to aid in the development of Mother Africa.

We start where we are, and then spread our wings to Africa, The Caribbean and the Isles of The Pacific.”

 

Black people spend:

$3.3 billion per year on tobacco.
$3 billion per year on whiskey, wine and beer.
$2.8 billion per year on the non-alcoholic beverages.
$3.1 billion per year on leisure time.
$3.5 billion per year on toys, games, and pets.
$19 billion per year on telephone services.
$10 billion per year on buying gifts for one another.
$13 billion per year on gambling.
$29.3 billion per year on clothing.

And after all these things that we spend in the billions, do you know how much we spend on books? We spend $321 million.

We must follow the moral and financial guidance of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad to unlearn the behaviors that keep us poor, and the merchants of other communities rich.

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue]  “Don’t you think it would be wise that as people sign up for The Economic Blueprint, that every time they give a donation, that you all hand out to them some type of brochure that teaches financial literacy?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red]  “It would be a great thing to teach our people financial literacy! But remember: If thousands, and tens of thousands give, it will take thousands and tens of thousands of dollars to have a booklet on financial literacy.

There are many wonderful scholars and teachers of financial literacy; and by The Grace of God, as we start picking up steam: These are persons that are absolutely necessary in helping our people to see the value of saving and investing, and spending wisely. We will do that when we are strong enough to do that.”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue]  “What is the difference between the 3-Year Economic Program that has been advertised in your paper for years, versus this recent Economic Blueprint Plan? Is giving to one giving to both?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red] “What we had was a 3-Year Economic Plan—but this Economic Blueprint doesn’t have a time on it: We keep giving to it until we accomplish what it is we desire!”

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue] “I believe in your Economic Blueprint, and I gave my $20 already. But don’t you think that if we can give more, we definitely should?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red]  “There are many among us who could give more, but the idea is to get the masses of our people involved in saving and investing in a painless way. But you can give as much as you can afford to give, if it pleases you to do so.” http://www.economicblueprint.org/

[highlight_blue]Question:[/highlight_blue]  “I am a Black woman with a Masters and a Ph.D., and I cannot seem to find a career to pay my bills. What should I do at this point, Brother Minister?”

[highlight_red]The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan:[/highlight_red] “Take your Masters and your Ph.D., and sit down and think about a need that your people have, and become an entrepreneur. Rather than looking to someone to utilize your degree, you utilize them; and see what good can come to you!”
