Research Introduction


Research: Introduction

Rose CDC was incorporated in 1999 as a product of Douglas Stuart's research project during studies in a Masters in Community Economic Development (MSCED). Rose CDC was designed to be primarily engaged in applied research and to provide a new direction for self-sustaining community and economic development. The history of Rose CDC has its foundation in the real life experiences of Rose Stuart and Douglas Stuart in Indian Country.

Douglas Stuart continued his graduate studies and research through an MBA, an MS International Business and additional course work towards an MS in Finance and PhD in International Business. These global studies and research, combined with the on-going research of Dr. Phillip Vos Fellman, created a new direction for self-sustaining community and economic development. Applying the on-going research to the real world of community and economic development in Indian Country, Rose CDC designed the Rose Model and Rose Approach in 2002. The Rose Model and Rose Approach are more fully detailed in the Rose CDC Business Plan; a proprietary document of 263 pages that for the first time is being shared, in part, on the Rose CDC web site. The Rose Model and Rose Approach are dynamic models. Rose CDC, primarily engaged in applied research, continues to adapt the Rose Model and Rose Approach, empowering the novel business model to be dynamic in nature, responding to emerging patterns of change in community and economic development around the globe.

The applied research detailed in the Rose CDC Business Plan encompasses the economic principles of the East Asian Economic Developmental State and the principles of modern physics and applied mathematics as exemplified in chaos and complexity theory. The application of complexity and chaos theories, coupled with the Wall Street method of developing economic models around existing economic activities, replaces the failed approach of applying social theories to address economic needs. The novel business model employs cutting edge applied mathematics and complex systems modeling tools in order to architect a new series of economic, legal and organizational activities for Indian Nations. In short, The Rose Model and Rose Approach are founded on real science; not the junk science of social theory.

Rose CDC has several ongoing, continuous applied research programs. Some are area intensive and revolve around geographic visits to various reservation locations and the study and continuous quality improvement of ongoing Native American Enterprises, while others involve the development of new enterprises. Finally, the Cyber-Rez program of Rose CDC itself represents a new applied research paradigm and a new kind of continuous research initiative for Indian Country.

In short, we continue to apply our on-going long-term and local, applied research to develop dynamic programs of national interest for Indian Country, extending novel investment through high-demand financial instruments into a critical area of IT driven manufacturing and technology development.
