Comments on: NATO’s biggest security threat is now economic Mon, 20 May 2013 19:02:41 +0000 hourly 1 By: RK_France Tue, 29 May 2012 13:28:06 +0000 Its very surprising that the west considers itself to be the cradle of civilization or democracy! There have been ancient civilizations like Indian or Chinese where many concepts of science, technology & democracy were born!

The west needs to come out of its overconfidence! Its time it engages itself sincerely with the rest of the world and promote world’s economic and social growth as also its own!

Reforming the old international institutions like the world bank and UNO shall be a first positive step!!

False assumption …

Q&A comparison between the EuroZone (only a part of the EU) and the DollarZone (all of the US):
*Q – Which zone has the larger population!
A – EuroZone population is 332 million, US population is 314 million

*Q – Which zone has the larger total public debt as a percentage of GDP?
A – EuroZone (86%), DollarZone (103%)

*Q – Which zone has the larger GDP?
A – EuroZone (€8.4 trillion), DollarZone (€11.2 trillion)

*Q – Which zone has the larger aggregate consumer market (i.e., population)
A – EuroZone (317 million), DollarZone (314 million)

*Q – Which zone has the larger part of world trade ?
A – EuroZone (14.6%) ; DollarZone (9.7%)

*Q – Which zone has the larger Export Market Value (as a percentage of GDP)?
A – EuroZone (21.7% GDP) ; DollarZone (10.8% GDP)

*Q – Which zone has the larger Import Market (as a percentage of GDP)?
A – EuroZone (20.9% GDP) ; DollarZone (16.6% GDP)

*Q – Which zone has the larger level of unemployment?
A – EuroZone (10.9%), DollarZone (8.1%)

Is there any real, fundamental difference in their economic situations?

And if not, why is there no news-reporting about an impending Debt Implosion in the US – which, after all, does have a much larger debt burden?

Of have the journalistic Summer Folies begun early this year?

By: usagadfly Fri, 25 May 2012 21:54:30 +0000 It is time for the US power elite, which includes both “political parties” and much more, to demonstrate to the American People why they should be retained.

Focus on foreign interests has left an entire country that we cannot “afford” to take care of or keep their promises to — the USA. The utter failure of our system to give a voice to most people who live here is the utter failure of the system built, supposedly, on our old 1789 Constitution. Can freedom and representation be salvaged from the mess we must currently endure? If it can, it is time to slash corruption by at least half and to give a 5% voice to a 5% voting bloc. Or a 49.9% voice to a 49.9% voting bloc, for that matter.

The clock is running out. No one has to demonstrate what will take the place of the current system. No one ever does. Systemic failures are always swept away. Wake up time.

So, what are these nations going to do to solve the problem?

Nothing they do will solve the problem. The European economies will work it out without help or the economies will continue their slide.

For those that need it in black and white: the politicians are totally incompetent.
