I think that the one and only important thing nowadays is the attempted murder of the free internet. I would dare say that the whole economic situation is but a smokescreen.

Think about it: The one and only thing that can endanger the PTB is the free flow of information and opinion. Everything else can be reversed. The free internet is humanity's nervous system (and not on drugs like with TV). It greatly diminishes propaganda, gives people many different points of view, makes containing scandals much more difficult, helps whistle blowers, help people feel empowered and not lonely, helps people organize.

Thinks about it. Without a free internet, we wouldn't be able to read R's site, and discuss things eg. here. So eg R's writings are indeed important, but are just a special case of the general case that is the free internet. Without that, we have nothing.

The free internet is already under attack, and is under way to become a mainly one way, non anonymous, controlled medium. My prediction is that it will get murdered, unfortunately. The majority of people don't know and/or care and/or understand what is at stake.

*ANY* idea about how to avert that, is desperately needed.

I am in total agreement that paying for 'information that reinhardt sees as imperative to get out there' as ludicrous. I have no problem saying this knowing that he occasionally reads this ats thread.

I am sure that everyone has their own opinions, i.e. the information is worth it versus the moral debate of educating people on high finance corruption - kind of defeats the purpose as those potentially affected by such corruption (i.e. the taxpayers) are now paying to know how it is manufactured!!

I hope the relevant people make the right decision on the 'choice' of payment! I am very confident, definitely-maybe, that reinhardt will charge after Christmas. Hows that for a prediction?

I never thought about this until now, but: I appreciate what R has done to bring some obscure pieces together to reveal a pretty convincing picture and I think that's invaluable for the public (peasants) good. I've never thought to profit from what I see as evil manipulating the markets.

I'm interested in making more people aware of just how corrupt the whole thing is.

I'm not much of an investor, but I have a considerable (to me) amount of money in the market (now sitting in Tbills). That being said, I would pay for advice from R if it demonstrated a way to generate a return from the market. But frankly, the messages (to a novice) have not been very clear on how to profit. (I realize that's not their intended purpose anyway.)

Anyway ...

This Somalia issue raises the Puntland Government and it's natural resources as a going concern. Other than location, it had to have something of importance for investors.


GAROWE/NAIROBI, 10 August 2007 (UNDP Somalia) — The Minister of Justice for Puntland, Hon. Abdirizak Yasin Abdule, launched the state’s first Five-Year Development Plan (2007-2011), at a ceremony held to mark the occasion at the Presidential Palace in Garowe on Thursday. In addition to the five-year plan, the Annual Plan (2007), and Puntland in Progress (2007) were also launched simultaneously.



The government of Puntland has worked tirelessly to ensure that the plans are guided by the MDGs, and coherent with the Reconstruction and Development Plan for Puntland formulated jointly by the UN, World Bank, and Somali counterparts. This is a great achievement, as it harmonises various initiatives to improve the lives of the people of Puntland.

An infrastructure for oil programme? The World Bank and UN have to be in it for a reason.

As for the internet 'silk road', Africa needs 'connected'. Any internet providers would be scrambling to get in here, but not before the infrastructure is developed!

The last outpost for connectivity?



In terms of cables, the foundations are there:




With a subscriber growth rate of 46.2 percent from 2001-2005, Africa's mobile communication numbers continue to rise, making the continent a leading emerging market destination for information communication technology investment.

The continent continues to experience significant growth in air travel revenue (12.1 percent in 2005), and African airports had an average annual traffic growth of 5.4 percent between 1995 and 2005. A more stunning reality is that more than 80 percent of Africa's population is without electricity.

The lack of electricity stunts the growth of a variety of commercial, social and public-service industries ready for development and investment. The Corporate Council on Africa (CCA) today announced that in conjunction with its corporate and government partners, it will host the 2008 U.S. - Africa Infrastructure Conference: Connecting the Continent. The conference will be held October 6-8 in Washington, D.C. The conference is expected to attract more than 300 leaders from the private and public sectors in the U.S. and Africa, with a specific interest in infrastructure-related industry investments.

Anyone starting to smell an African dot com bubble being inflated? I know parts of Africa are known for vultures, but ...

Wonder what the religious influence in all this is, if any? (Africa greatest Catholic growth region in the World maybe)?

I agree. The information is convincing. I see patterns and corruption and the relationships between them. I do not play the market, I choose funds to invest my 401k. The only information that would help me is when to pull out of the market, what to put it in, and when to get back in. I know....asking for a lot.

Somalia...

Africa is a HUGH untapped reservoir of cheap labor.

I wonder if Perestroika was just the ruse to pave the way for access to cheap labor.

It may be that the car of tomorrow is manufactured in Russia and China, (and our customer service calls are directed to India) but, perhaps the car of tomorrow will be manufactured in Africa.

I'd also bet that after a 10-year U.S. depression the AmeriKan worker will be happy to get back to work for less than (s)he makes today...

Rothschild sees a New World Order
November 15, 2008 by Disinter

Rupert Wright reports:

Gradually the firm has started expanding throughout the world, including the Gulf. “There is no debate that Rothschild is a Jewish family, but we are proud to be in this region. However, it takes time to develop a global footprint,” he says.

[...]

Baron Rothschild shares most people’s view that there is a New World Order. In his opinion, banks will deleverage and there will be a new form of global governance.

[...]

So how did the Rothschilds manage to emerge relatively unscathed from the financial meltdown? “You could say that we may have more insights than others…”

Osborne accused of trying to sabotage pound


PETER MANDELSON stepped up Labour's attack on George Osborne today by claiming he had tried to sabotage the pound.

His extraordinary allegation was that the shadow chancellor deliberately hoped to torpedo the economy by predicting a run on sterling.

Brazil Exchange Trader Shoots Self in Suicide Attempt


Nov. 17 (Bloomberg) -- A 36-year-old trader at Brazil's securities exchange shot himself in the chest in an attempted suicide on the trading floor, BM&FBovespa SA said.

The trader, who works for Itau Corretora, the brokerage unit of Banco Itau Holding Financeira SA, was taken to Santa Casa hospital in Sao Paulo and listed in critical condition, a hospital spokeswoman said. No one else was injured in the incident, an exchange spokesman said.

I suppose, the only thing missing in Africa now is Globalists. America will soon remedy that, just as they (West) did with the Middle East / India and China.

Here's an interesting snippet regarding China and Africa:


Loaded with excess bodies willing to scour the world for economic opportunity, China is America’s natural ally in extending globalization’s reach and absorbing those off-grid regions where rogue regimes, failed states, and transnational terrorism thrive.

A smart America co-opts China’s rise just as Britain shaped ours a century ago. Instead of containing China, we should steer its rise to suit our strategic purposes. And what China must do is what America did back then: build its military and rebrand it as a force for global stability.

A good place to start is Africa. The Pentagon has recently established a dedicated Africa Command to thwart radical Islam’s penetration of the continent. That military unit should work hand-in-glove with China, which has already flooded Africa with 80,000 nationals engaged in pre-emptive nation building. In this alliance, America focuses on governance and security while China focuses on infrastructure and markets to accelerate Africa’s integration into the global economy.


Nation-building in Africa - China has the infrastructure which the capitalists will debase while the US gets the military access rights AFRICOM?

Both get the growth of the natural resources, no doubt the African people will see much of it. Economic hitmen anyone?


In the last few years, Africa’s infrastructure deficit has regained ground as a top priority in development planning, with a sharp change of tack by the World Bank, the continent’s biggest multilateral source of finance. Through the 1990s the bank held to the belief – “somewhat naively”, according to John Page, its chief Africa economist – that the private sector could be counted on to fill the infrastructure gap. By the time the realisation dawned that private enterprise would not meet the requirements in key sectors – not, at least, without being levered in by public support – Africa had fallen even further behind.

source


According to World Bank officials, infrastructure’s share of development assistance by rich countries shrivelled from about 30 per cent in 1973 to 10 per cent in 2003. In part this reflected a shift towards more socially oriented spending, in part bad experiences from earlier white-elephant projects. “A few years ago, infrastructure was almost a dirty word in development circles,” comments a UK aid official. Even today, a World Bank expert points to difficulty promoting ventures for which social benefits are long-term and indirect: “It is more sexy to lend for a school than a thermal power plant.


Give a man a fish and he will want you to cook it for him - or something like that!


Preparatory consultations showed infrastructure investment to be at the top of Africans’ priorities.


Just wondering if military and infrastructure support is being funded via natural resources. These things are not cheap -

The commission’s report put total additional requirements for infrastructure at $20bn a year, of which developed countries should put up $10bn, with a possible doubling of the amount later on. “We need that kind of money – $200bn to $400bn over the next 10 years,” says an official at the UN Economic Commission for Africa.



According to a World Bank official, the cost of doing business is twice as high as in east Asia, and 30 per cent higher than any other region. And for Africa’s 16 landlocked nations, transport costs are on average 50 per cent higher than for coastal countries. Dysfunctions in planning and poor maintenance make matters worse.


This sounds similar to the justification for the creation of the US's Interstate Highway System creation. IHS - history


With conflicts abating, private sector activity growing, and African countries cashing in on high commodity prices, international officials now see the opportunity to make up the lag. Sectors such as airports and railways, they argue, can be developed with very little donor money. But others such as roads and rural water and electrification will continue to rely on outside financing.


The bridge here is the FDI social funding of schools (they can now speak English, but just enough not to be able to read about self governance); promise of security from the military; and infrastructure built from highly (over) paid foreign workers. Thus, the locale is sanitised for foreign investment. The vehicles are the foreign industries (much like GM & Ford) placed strategically where labour is plentiful and thus cheap - there are also no pesky Unions or health & safety legislation. Competition is also scarce and thus highly profitable monopolies are established. Effective competition or competing interests the cue to debase?

The first black President in US history thee bridge to a new era of African enrons? Timing is everything!!
