Economic Amplifiers fall into classes called strategies, and in comparison with electronicamplifiers, the specific internal functions or an economic amplifier are called logistical insteadof electrical.There<strong>for</strong>e, economic amplifiers not only deliver power gain, but also, in effect, are used tocause changes in the economic circuitry.In the design of an economic amplifier we must have some idea of at least five functions,which are:(1) the available input signals,(2) the desired output control objectives,(3) the strategic objective,(4) the available economic power sources,(5) the logistical options.The process of defining and evaluating these factors and incorporating the economic amplifierinto an economic system has been popularly called game theory.The design of an economic amplifier begins with a specification of the power level of theoutput, which can range from personal to national. The second condition is accuracy ofresponse, i.e., how accurately the output action is a function of the input commands. High gaincombined with strong feedback helps to deliver the required precision. Most of the error will bein the input data signal. Personal input data tends to be specific, while national input datatends to be statistical.SHORT LIST OF INPUTSQuestions to be answered:(1) what (3) where (5) why(2) when (4) how (6) whoGeneral sources of in<strong>for</strong>mation:(1) telephone taps (3) analysis of garbage(2) surveillance (4) behavior of children in schoolStandard of living by:(1) food (3) shelter(2) clothing (4) transportationSocial contacts:(1) telephone - itemized record of calls(2) family - marriage certificate, birth certificates, etc.(3) friends, associates, etc.(4) memberships in organizations(5) political affiliationPersonal buying habits, i.e.,Personal consumer preferences:Assets:(1) checking accounts(2) credit card purchasesTHE PERSONAL PAPER TRAIL(3) ' tagged' credit card purchases - the credit card purchase of productsbearing the U.P.C.
