SPEND TO GROW THE ECONOMY

Very Interesting article written by an Indian Economist about world economy. Amazing logic indeed. This is a crazy world! How valid is it? I leave it to you!

Japanese save a lot. They do not spend much. Also, Japan exports far more than it imports. Has an annual trade surplus of over 100 billion. Yet Japanese economy is considered weak, even collapsing.

Americans spend, save little. Also US imports more than it exports.
Has an annual trade deficit of over $400 billion. Yet, the American economy is considered strong and trusted to get stronger.

But where do Americans get money to spend? They borrow from Japan, China and even India.
Virtually others save for the Americans to spend. Global savings are mostly invested in US, in dollars.

India itself keeps its foreign currency assets of over $50 billion in US securities. China has sunk over $160 billion in US securities.
Japan’s stakes in US securities is in trillions.

Result:
The US has taken over $5 trillion from the world. So, as the world
saves for the US – It’s The Americans who spend freely. Today, to keep the US consumption going, that is for the US economy to work, other countries have to remit $180 billion every quarter, which is $2
billion a day, to the US!

A Chinese economist asked a neat question. Who has invested more, US in China, or China in US? The US has invested in China less than half of what China has invested
in US.

The same is the case with India. It have invested in US over $50
billion. But the US has invested less than $20 billion in India.

Why the world is after US?

The secret lies in the American spending, that they hardly save. In fact they use their credit cards to spend their future income. That the US spends is what makes it attractive to export to the US. So US imports more than what it exports year after year.

The result:

The world is dependent on US consumption for its growth. By its deepening culture of consumption, the US has habituated the world to feed on US consumption. But as the US needs money to finance its consumption, the world provides the money.

It’s like a shopkeeper providing the money to a customer so that the customer keeps buying from the shop. If the customer will not buy, the shop won’t have business, unless the
shopkeeper funds him. The US is like the lucky customer. And the world is like the helpless shopkeeper financier.

Who is America’s biggest shopkeeper financier? Japan of course. Yet it’s Japan which is regarded as weak. Modern economists complain that Japanese do not spend, so they do not grow. To force the Japanese to spend, the Japanese government exerted itself, reduced the savings
rates, even charged the savers. Even then the Japanese did not spend (habits don’t change, even with taxes, do they?). Their traditional postal savings alone is over $1.2 trillion. Thus, savings, far from being the strength of Japan, has become its pain.

Hence, what is the lesson?

That is, a nation cannot grow unless the people spend, not save. Not just spend, but borrow and spend.

Dr. Jagdish Bhagwati, the famous Indian-born economist in the US, told Manmohan Singh that Indians wastefully save. Ask them to spend, on imported cars and, seriously, even on cosmetics! This will put India on a growth curve. This is one of the reason for MNC’s coming down to India, seeing the consumer spending.

‘Saving is sin, and spending is virtue.’
But before you follow this Neo Economics, get some fools to save so that you can borrow from them and spend !!!
The world is in a economical mess 😅- interesting readk

FOUR TYPES OF WAR

The following is translated from an article in Arabic:

What do you know about the zero cost of war?

Says the intellectual Dr. Iqbal:

The generations of wars are four:

* The first generation *: Fighting with swords and spears this was called the wars of the knights ..

* Second generation *: Fighting with firearms. . Colt, the American designer of the Colt brand, said: “Now the brave and cowardly are equal.

* Third Generation *: Fighting and genocide with nuclear weapons, a war in which the most cowardly wins.

* Fourth generation *: To leave your enemy fighting themselves, using the mercenaries, is the war of traitors and spies, and invests intellectual and religious conflicts and tribal and countries.

* French thinker Roger Garaudy said about the fourth generation of wars *:
Now the West is fighting at zero cost. .
The enemy kill themselves. .
The enemy pays for the weapon. .
The enemy asks us to intervene, so we do not accept. .

Zero cost means that the West does not lose anything in the war. .
We need to face this by intellectual awareness, as the wars of the fourth generation depends on the creation of failed states .. This is done through the following points:

First: creating an ideological conflict such as sectarian, racial, sectarian or regional conflicts. .

Second: Isolation of an area in the country to be destroyed so that it is not under the control of that State.

Third: To establish an army of bad guys from the state to be a killing tool without any mercy or thinking, and this is the army that is a substitute for the armies of the occupying state.

Fourthly, illiterate children and youth should be used and educated in the fighting, so that a generation full of culture of murders and destruction, rather than the culture of construction, reconstruction and urbanization, is created. .

And finally the creation of a failed state that is easy to control and subject to any decision that the occupying state wants from that failed state.

DESTABILIZE OR SHOOT AT ENEMY NATION

It is has been always true theory to weaken, destabilize and divide the enemy. This strategy works well in regard to sabotaging the economy, unity and social cohesion of an enemy nation, among many other areas of a national well-being. What was happening in Somalia during the course of several decades is not an accident, but a deliberate exposure to and practical aplication of this theory on Somalia by many foreign actors, their proxies and local recruits.

Politicized clannism and religious fragmentation through proliferation of sects, epidemic corruption, and lately, NGOism, are the most powerful tools of this theory in destabilizing Somalia.


It is the solemn duty of Somali leaders to provide resources for studying these hostile foreign interventionist policies and confront this century-old vicious attack on our nation without leading the country into isolation and fear mongering, and thus, sacrificing the planned regional economic integration, for Somalia cannot stand up on its own at moment.
