The 2011-2016 Outlook for Custom Drapes and Curtains in the United States
This econometric study covers the latent demand outlook for custom drapes and curtains across the states and cities of the United States. Latent demand (in millions of U.S. dollars), or potential industry earnings (P.I.E.) estimates are given across some 13,000 cities in the United States. For each city in question, the percent share the city is of it's state and of the United States is reported. These comparative benchmarks allow the reader to quickly gauge a city vis-a-vis others. This statistical approach can prove very useful to distribution and/or sales force strategies. Using econometric models which project fundamental economic dynamics within each state and city, latent demand estimates are created for custom drapes and curtains. This report does not discuss the specific players in the market serving the latent demand, nor specific details at the product level. The study also does not consider short-term cyclicalities that might affect realized sales. The study, therefore, is strategic in nature, taking an aggregate and long-run view, irrespective of the players or products involved.

This study does not report actual sales data (which are simply unavailable, in a comparable or consistent manner in virtually all of the cities in the United States). This study gives, however, my estimates for the latent demand, or the P.I.E., for custom drapes and curtains in the United States. It also shows how the P.I.E. is divided and concentrated across the cities and regional markets of the United States. For each state, I also show my estimates of how the P.I.E. grows over time. In order to make these estimates, a multi-stage methodology was employed that is often taught in courses on strategic planning at graduate schools of business.

Madison Square Park: Chester Alan Arthur, the 21st United States President by George Edwin Bissell Dedicated on June 13, 1899, this monumental bronze portrait of Chester Alan Arthur (1830-1886), the 21st United States President, is by sculptor George Edwin Bissell (1839-1920). Arthur was born in Fairfield, Vermont on October 5, 1830, the son of Reverend William Arthur and Malvina Stone. After college he studied law briefly, and then served in 1851 as principal of an academy at North Pownal, Vermont (where James Garfield, the 20th president taught penmanship the following year). In 1853, Arthur moved to New York City, and practiced law. A staunch abolitionist, Arthur gained recognition for taking on civil rights cases, including one which paved the way for integration in the City’s passenger railroads. At this time, he became active in the newly formed Republican Party. During the Civil War, he served the Union as inspector-general and then quartermaster, in charge of providing equipment, clothing, and supplies to those troops in New York. In 1871, Arthur was appointed customs collector of the Port of New York, a position of enormous influence. However, faced with corruption charges, he left office in 1878, under pressure from President Rutherford B. Hayes, an action which angered New York state Republicans led by Senator Roscoe Conkling. They were mollified by the selection of Arthur as the vice-presidential candidate on the successful ticket with James A. Garfield in 1880. Upon Garfield’s assassination in 1881, Arthur assumed the presidency, and was the first president since George Washington to take the oath of office in New York City. Arthur’s administration was considered to be honest and efficient. He successfully supported the Civil Service Reform Act of 1883, and vetoed legislation limiting the immigration Chinese laborers. Failing in 1884 to be renominated, Arthur returned to New York City, and died on November 18, 1886. This statue was commissioned by the friends of Arthur at a cost of $25,000. The ornamental base of polished black Barre granite was designed by James Brown Lord. The sculpture depicts Arthur standing in a frock coat before an armchair, draped with a rug, and embossed on the back with the presidential seal. Bissell, who studied art in Paris, Rome and Florence, was a prolific sculptor, and operated a marble business in Poughkeepsie, New York. He also sculpted the portrait of mayor Abraham de Peyster, formerly in Bowling Green Park, and now in Hanover Square in lower Manhattan. The Arthur sculpture was repatined by the city monuments crew in 1968, and was conserved again in 1986-87. Sculptures of Arthur’s contemporaries, Roscoe Conkling (1893) and Secretary of State William Seward (1876) may be found at the southeast and southwest corners respectively of Madison Square Park, and Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ fine effigy of Admiral Farragut (1881) stands vigilant on the northern side of the park’s central axis.
My "Ikea Hack" desk. After looking at it, I can see that it was unconsciously inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water. Since it is the most incredible house I've ever seen, I'm quite ok with the resemblance. All it needs is rock, trees, and a stairway into a river. Black uprights are 1/4" thick steel speaker stands that were custom built for me a few years ago by a robotics engineer Honda co-worker as a barter for a case of poker chips. The thin horizontal board is the backing from an old Ikea bookshelf given to me a few years ago by a friend and Columbia University schoolmate when he moved from Los Angeles to North Carolina. It is screwed to the top plate of each speaker stand from below by three drywall screws. The main desk surface is from an Ikea coffee table. It is 68"x31". This is wide enough for my monitor and a laptop, and deep enough to push the keyboard back and eat on it while watching movies or what not. It is typically "cost effective" hollow core Ikea construction of particle board frame and corrugated cardboard in between a wood veneer top surface and a cardboard bottom. This construction makes it very difficult to attach to anything since screws will only hold in the 2" particle board frame. Because of this, there are only two 3" drywall screws holding the table top to the board. The computer and external hard drive platform is an L-shaped lower shelf from an Ikea computer desk that at 20"x26" was waaay too small to be useful. The L shape workes well to allow the shelf to wrap around the vertical upright. Using a 1/2" drill bit, I made three holes at the three corners of the shelf and used cut drumsticks (the drumming kind, not from chickens) as legs to keep the computer off the dusty lint-producing carpet, and give room for the many, many cables to go. Obviously this seems like an unstable creation, but I came up with a solution. There is a 6"x9" L-bracket screwed into a stud in the wall as an anchor. The bracket is screwed into both the horizontal board, and the tabletop, keeping the whole structure from tipping, tilting, moving, or falling over. It also keeps the gap to the wall at exactly 1/2" to give room for wires to drape down.

The 2011 Report on Custom Drapes and Curtains: World Market Segmentation by City
This report was created for global strategic planners who cannot be content with traditional methods of segmenting world markets. With the advent of a "borderless world", cities become a more important criteria in prioritizing markets, as opposed to regions, continents, or countries. This report covers the top 2000 cities in over 200 countries. It does so by reporting the estimated market size (in terms of latent demand) for each major city of the world. It then ranks these cities and reports them in terms of their size as a percent of the country where they are located, their geographic region (e.g. Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Latin America), and the total world market.

In performing various economic analyses for its clients, I have been occasionally asked to investigate the market potential for various products and services across cities. The purpose of the studies is to understand the density of demand within a country and the extent to which a city might be used as a point of distribution within its region. From an economic perspective, however, a city does not represent a population within rigid geographical boundaries. To an economist or strategic planner, a city represents an area of dominant influence over markets in adjacent areas. This influence varies from one industry to another, but also from one period of time to another.

In what follows, I summarize the economic potential for the world's major cities for "custom drapes and curtains" for the year 2011. The goal of this report is to report my findings on the real economic potential, or what an economist calls the latent demand, represented by a city when defined as an area of dominant influence. The reader needs to realize that latent demand may or may not represent real sales.
