Excellent thank you
Great presentation about capitalism and corruption which nothing new about that system. American capitalism, American technology and free trade agreements made China rich. The American debt and US dollar greased the wheels of commerce. For forty years most of our manufactured products were "Made in China". "It's China everywhere"
Canada's PM Martin showed us the 'sleaze' side of democracy-hiding his 'fleet' of ships under foreign flags to avoid paying taxes to his OWN country. I knew Switzerland was a hub of 'illegal' money BUT- lost my appetite when I read your entire article, a web of robbery AND poor Africa!! It's like a web of 'mass destruction' of the poor. I'm really ticked!!!
Absolutely- but aside from the already corrupted being the ones funding policing, the rot is so entrenched and widespread it’s hard to imagine how much can be accomplished. There isn’t a political will- voters are focussed on healthcare, housing costs, inflation..protecting their own places in the food chain..And the mess is far more than russia...it’s China..everywhere...the west: Britain, US, Canada have become easy and safe places to stash funds..once we thought the interconnectedness eased global tensions..now we are being played for our foolishness
Wonderful article and very timely. As the rich get richer the spread between middle class and the poor are expanding exponentially. That's why the poorer people / nations have nothing to lose by immigrating to richer nations; as they have nothing to lose. To quote the Bible "... Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled". This world has many challenges to address with an ever increasing population of 8 billion people.
There is a common ground shared across political spectrum- of frustration in lack of social justice..we frame it differently per our “affiliation” but under it..we all feel helpless and worked over...people are not stupid squirrels...but feel disenfranchised ..viz- I written to pm of Canada several times over our lame support for Ukraine...and received only bs Thankyou ..as investment banker i saw corruption in FSU and the power of likes of Koch bros but our regulators did little
Very Nice article again. Huge problems with crypto. This is the next in hiding crime money. People making money as the crypto goes up and criminals must be making a fortune in a scam. There is no value only they need suckers buying the crypto. Countries that use it in dictator countries are giving a green light to crime. Create lots of chaos and keep they money(crypto) growing. Russia loves it because it can hide how they get money. Countries have to clamp down on crypto unless used to fund new startup businesses. It helps if one uses AI and business solutions that grow the value of the crypto. So far crypto out there is to get people to pump up the value and make some criminals rich.
