Residents

… who want to enjoy guaranteed and affordable security as well as liberty under a strict rule of law regime. So far, only big companies with large investment volumes can negotiate legal stability agreements with governments. In Free Private Cities, every single resident gets his or her own personal agreement with the operator, which guarantees not only legal stability and predictability, but also physical security as well as personal and economic freedom. The operator as government service provider cannot change this contract unilaterally or raise or invent new taxes. Everybody pays only for what they have ordered.

 

Businesses

who are looking for a predictable, stable and low-regulatory environment. In Free Private Cities, even small businesses have contractually guaranteed legal stability and fixed payment obligations for their activities. The regulation is low and limited to prevent disputes and damage to third parties. There is no forum for lobbyists or pressure groups to impose new rules and regulations which favor themselves, their cronies or their industries. Businesses can focus on what they can do best: serving the market.

Governments

who want to try out new ideas to bring their country forward and attract high-potentials, investors and new industries. With Free Private Cities, governments can try out reform ideas on a limited scale, which are too difficult to implement in the whole country. If successful they can be applied to the whole country, like China did with their Shenzhen free zone. Attracting foreign businesses and qualified residents by simply granting some tax benefits is not sufficient any longer – there are already more than 4,000 special economic zones in the world. To be competitive today, it is necessary to grant long-term legal stability and predictability, as well as economic and personal liberties. Only if an environment is suited for high-performing individuals, will the best companies follow.
