2011: The Official Year of Our New Globe Masters (the East)

I was looking at events, and various other groupings, so to speak, from economics, political and the greater global politics, and every time I take a second look at this data, I shrugged, at first, my head and cry-out loud, ‘this can not be, surely, we have another decade, or as economists have it, five … Continue reading

Daily Media Review: Tues, 31.05.11

Good Articles all around, for informing not insight (never real insight). Anyway, The RT (Russia Today) has a number of excellent articles on Libya and so forth. Followed by Reuters on Goldman Sachs offer of shares to Libya after losing her £1.6 billion on securities (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2011/05/31/uk-goldmansachs-idUKTRE74U0JM20110531), and of course, every newspaper and screens we have, … Continue reading

As much, and expected, nothing of use is contained within the global media pages and screens this bank holiday morning, so; just put on your smoking-jackets and smoke some good old pipe, stare out the window and recollect the good old memories past the times, as the rain pours, let cherry stir you towards the … Continue reading

Book Review: On Anatole Kalentsky ‘Capitalism 4.0’ (After Completion)

Well, for those who will remember, we had a first review of the book already last month, and literary sum-it-up as, a typical economist-looking-for-clients for their products, through ‘fear-mongering with hope’: we will beat Authoritarian China; Capitalist Democracy rule; and so forth. Now, after completing the book, and should confess, I jumped pages, as you … Continue reading

Sunday Papers: 29.05.11

Good all around headlines, of usual interests, with few distorted stories, the undermining and defacing of private manning is one of them, by the Guardian newspaper, my theory is they, The Guardian, has been finding it hard to leave strangled-out of key insiders snippets (the chinese for whispers and information leaks), and they seemed to … Continue reading

Organisational Success: The psychologies, The Cultures and The Managament

This paper is based on the analysis of the few business firms and most importantly in reference to the sporting organisations and their success, which I see depends on not the ‘architectural synergy’, that enforced and superficial, but rather a ‘natural synergy’ based on the three mutual-supporting-pillars of psychological easiness, cultural harmony and managerial leadership. … Continue reading

New Update: #EuropeanJasmineRevolution (the philosophical dilemma)

I just thought I repeat this point here, as it has that philosophical dilemma within the concept of foreign ‘Humanitarian Interventions’: If we accept that we are by law and ‘god’ (for gods-nuts) we are expected to ‘intervene’ in faraway sovereign nations affairs, for the claimants of ‘justice and order’, the question is: Could we … Continue reading

On Libya: Discussing the PSYOPs & What It Really Means to the Conflict ?

We have seen the Anglo-French Libyan Occupation Forces/Alliance reduced to acceptance of the the inability to force Mr. Gaddaffi out of Power using Military Force, so what is the only option left, Diplomacy, but a diverse portfolio of diplomatic approaches; the soft (behind doors political talks) and the hard (the use of Aerial and Gunboat … Continue reading

Daily Media Review: Fri, 27.05.11

Today not much is of general use, as the papers and screens are filled with the capture of the butcher of srebenica (I thought they would as through him into the sea, as they did with ‘Osama’). Anyway, first link is of an article supporting my previous post (In Reply of The Telegraph Columnist), that … Continue reading

Two Ideas I had Today (after a chat with Ephraim, A close Friend)

Today while having a chat with Ephraim, a close friend of mine, the greater philosopher, and we were talking about economics, and how poor states seemed to be staying poorer with all natures-blessed capital resources (I think someone had just finished reading is it John Kays book, I forgot the title; I think is some … Continue reading

On Political Economics: Adam Smith, The Socialist!!!

The first time around I read Adam Smith’s great ”over-rated” work, the Wealth of a Nation, I was sixteen years old, and all that Victorian-lingua mostly passed over my head, and what got stuck was the popular ideo-marketing of his theory as that of a Liberal Democratic Economics, of Laissez-Faire, free market. So, as many … Continue reading

Global Affairs: How Development Aid is Again regaining its natural use as a Soft Power, to influence and command Developing Countries.

The rise of development aid budget, and actors, even those on the receiving ends are themselves seemed to conduct a ”revolving door’ policy on this new international relations tool of influence. Russia, India, Brazil and so forth, they all receive foreign international aid, but now they themselves are starting to implement their own foreign aid … Continue reading

On Libya: The Psychological Warfare is Unleashed!!

Recently, after realising the failures of the airpower and ”ground troops” mobilised by the Anglo-Franco Libyan Occupation Forces in forcing a Regime Change against Gaddaffi Rule, these western aggressors have resorted to the old ”un-gentlemanly” tricks, of psychological operations, through disinformation and propaganda via the western media, for example, we have looked and continued to … Continue reading
