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 thing like this, How the Markets really works;the follies, limits and genius, yep, that is almost it).
Anyway, then we went over on the rise of China, and blah blah, we said good byes, and at home, cooking (my one self-therapeutic time; to some is the ‘throne’, at the loo, ha, Barbaric-s haha), anyway, I realised two thoughts just popped in-front of my mind; the first one, was on the first topic of our days discussion and the second to the latter, China.
So, these are the thoughts at their most rawest of essence.
THE KOREAN PENINSULA: THE FIRST SALVO OF THE WAR BETWEEN THE WESTERN SYSTEM/MODEL OF POLITICAL-ECONOMY AND CHINESE ESOTERIC APPROACH TO SOCIO-POLITICAL AND ECONOMICS IN THE EXTERNAL AFFAIRS.
In short, with the recent extended invitation by the chinese government for the North Korean Leader to ‘learn and be informed’ of the new economic model for national growth and wealth, and the BRIC dominant role by the Chinese, we seemed to be observing the Chinese locating the difference of the Korean Peninsular, as the first struggle to ‘experiment’ in ‘taking-on’ the American Global Model, as practised by their close-by allies, the wealthy and successful South Korea. Hence, my argument, we are observing, and the history pages might remind us so later, this area to be the first to have seen the ‘clash of civilisation’ between the Confusian Order of Global Affairs and The Wilsonian Model of American Liberal Democracy.
The second great idea was how to deal with….
HOW TO MAKE THE POOR STATES RICH?
My argument here is simple, strangle the giant corporations out of the rich states. that is that. hence the simplicity and genius of the idea, but never will happen,sadly.
The point is raise taxes, raise regulations, raise rules and penalties, and monitoring systems, and so forth and forth within the rich states of the North, in order, to have the natural-effect of sending these running for the base and workforces of the South, the poor states of Africa, Latin America and Asia. This GREAT EXODUS by the powerful juggernauts, will force them to take on social responsibilities at local levels by necessity, as they will need highly trained and educated workforces, so they will be forced to support and encourage education and training program (the great foreign investment, competitively fought by many), they will support new levels of standards of living, health programs and institutional supports and so forth.
This is the magic simple idea, of cause and effect.
Thanks for reading, as usual.
