“I’m embarrassed that this kind of propaganda is taken seriously by anyone. First of all, China has a closed capital account and a false exchange rate (imagine where the RMB would be priced under a free-floating and open regime). Secondly, by dramatically under-reporting”: Kyle Bass

China will become world's largest economy in early 2030s, surpassing US – a look at @TheEIU projections for US 🇺🇸, China 🇨🇳, India 🇮🇳 and Japan 🇯🇵 paints striking picture of global economic reshuffling by 2050

Chinese inflation data, the CCP government has conjured up a PPP number that appears to rival the US. To the untrained eye, this kind of disinformation can be spread globally. This analysis by @AgatheDemarais won’t age well once analytical integrity is employed. #China #Fiction

Your credit score may soon depend on your web history

In the not-too-distant future, your internet habits could help determine how much house you can buy and the rate on your next auto loan.

Sounds ridiculous? Right now, your credit score — that three-digit number that tells lenders how responsible you are — is based on simple financial information, like your payment history and debt level.

But research posted to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) website suggests companies will soon be looking at a lot more data to get an accurate picture of the risk you pose as a borrower.

We must develop laws and means to secure our data as our own and let no one else have it without our permission. See this for a way to do that using blockchain: Incorruptible data and medical tyranny. The ideas in the linked piece can also be applied to browser and all other personal digital data. This is a good time to reconfigure our system to make it freer, more efficient, and more private. Crises throughout our major institutions reveal where the problems are and how to fix them. A chief problem is corruption and authoritarian control from the top down in so many agencies, plus regulatory capture. We’re smart enough to fix that. ABN

Where Did All The People Go?

Why are companies all over the world suddenly desperate for workers?  In my entire life I have never seen anything like this.  When the labor shortage started in the United States, a lot of people blamed overly generous government handouts, but that doesn’t explain why the exact same thing is happening in nation after nation all over the globe.  There aren’t enough factory workers, there aren’t enough truck drivers, there aren’t enough port workers, there aren’t enough employees to properly staff our stores, and the shortage of doctors and nurses is becoming a major crisis in some areas.  During normal times, we were always told that the global economy was not producing nearly enough jobs for everyone, but now for the very first time we are facing an enormous worldwide labor shortage.  It is almost as if millions upon millions of people suddenly disappeared from the system.

China Evergrande is not ‘too big to fail’, says Global Times editor

HONG KONG, Sept 17 (Reuters) – The editor-in-chief of state-backed Chinese newspaper Global Times warned debt-ridden property giant Evergrande Group (3333.HK) that it should not bet on a government bailout on the assumption that it is “too big to fail”.

It was the first commentary to appear in state-backed media casting doubt on a government bailout for the country’s No.2 property developer, whose shares fell on Friday for the fifth consecutive day amid concerns it is heading for default.

Evergrande is scrambling to raise funds to pay its many lenders and suppliers and investors, with regulators warning its $305 billion of liabilities could spark broader risks to the country’s financial system if not stabilised. read more

Gordon Chang: “China may be able to avoid uncontrolled crash with Evergrande”

Chang also says, “Cut all commercial and financial ties with #China. Why should we go down the tubes with #Evergrande?” and “How can #China meet all its commitments when its economy is not growing and its debt crisis—think #Evergrande—is hitting the regime hard? #XiJinping must be thinking that if he does not act soon he will not be able to act at all. That means he can lash out and surprise us.” and General #Milley, with his October and January phone calls, emboldened #China’s regime and thereby made the world so much more dangerous.”

Slovenian prime minister calls for support for Lithuania over China spat

Brussels, Sept. 15 (CNA) Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa on Monday urged European Union nations to show support for Lithuania, which has reportedly faced retaliation from the Chinese government for its decision to deepen ties with Taiwan.

“Expelling the Lithuanian Ambassador from China and using trade as a weapon in a diplomatic dispute against one EU Member State is a reprehensible event which will have an impact on overall EU-China Relations,” Jansa said in a letter addressed to the European Council members, which was revealed by American media company The Politico on Wednesday.

Email from a friend: “Everything about the vax is a lie”

Everything about the vax is a lie.  Everything said about covid and vax is likely opposite of the actual truth.  It was never about protecting anyone because there was never a real pandemic to protect against.  The solution was already all baked in to the problem.  They want digital currency and control.  Also slavery. To make you a slave you have to have no sovereignty over your body and no privacy from the master.  What is the vaccine passport? It fulfils both.

Bad science, false virtue, bad laws lead to deforestation in Europe

…A flaw in the legislation meant that woody biomass was fully categorised as renewable, even if it came not just from wood residues or waste, but from whole trees. This meant that companies could directly harvest forests for pellets – rather than making pellets from the by-products of timber cut for other uses – in the name of sustainable forest management.

…Biomass, of which wood from forests is the main source, now makes up almost 60% of the EU’s renewable energy supply, more than solar and wind combined, and a vast cross-border industry has emerged to meet this demand.

What would you do if you wanted to foment a bloodless coup?

1. Create an international cabal of scientists to develop unique new biological weapons, funded by our taxes.  

2. Blame the ensuing epidemic on rural people for eating bats or skinning civets. [This could be the excuse to relocate them and grab their land if minerals, gas or oil are underground.] 

3. Prevent the public from accessing repurposed drugs that work against the new virus.

4. Set the blacks and whites against each other by producing widely publicized police killings.

5. Defund the police.  

6. Invent a cockamamie idea called “Critical Race Theory” that children are forced to learn in school, to further damage race relations. Never let the idea of social classes pass a teacher’s lips.

7. Fire teachers who refuse to teach this nonsense.

8. Destroy the quality of the medical system.  Turn doctors into typists.  Turn medical records into surveillance tools. Beat the medical staff into submission so they no longer have a backbone. Terrorize those who still have a voice.

9. Success is defined by having doctors comply with edicts that require harmful meds like remdesivir be used, while effective meds will not be prescribed.

10. Bankrupt Main Street.  

11. When Main Street barely starts to recover, require vaccinations to conduct transactions, dealing Main Street its death blow.

12. Buy up Main Street while it’s on its knees.

13. Use weather warfare or novel weapons to burn swathes of rural land you want to redevelop

14. Use pseudo riots to burn swathes of city property you want to redevelop, while blaming it on bad race relations.  It was a mistake to allow those pallets of bricks, delivered to the redevelopment locations, to be photographed.

15. Fire all medical staff not in compliance with vaccinations or silence, crippling the healthcare system while teaching those left that the system really means business.

16. Print as much money as possible, and spend it on junk, mostly–like unreliable rapid tests, track and trace when the pandemic is widespread everywhere.

17. This allows you to juice the case numbers to keep the public terrorized.

18. Deliver most of the now unemployed population into a state of financial reliance on the government.  Collapse the economy, and make everyone a captive of the state.

19. One simple vaccine passport gives you a tracking device, 24/7 surveillance, potential control of your subjects’ finances, and a means to regularly inject them with something to help ensure your plans don’t go awry.  And you get a social credit score, too boot.
