Are the European PIIGS Getting Too Much Slop? The Coming Global Economic Crisis and Its Effect on Us

I am always concerned about my own economic future (or lack thereof) when I daily check the world financial news. We in the United States are, or at least should be, concerned about a possible impending economic crisis due to overspending by our government. It is the largest increase in national debt in a two year period (2008-2010) in the history of the nation. We however have an advantage, at least temporarily, that European Union nations do not have. Our government has the ability to print money and postpone the upcoming payday coming due on all these outstanding debts. That is not really a good thing, but at least in the short run, it slows down the impending danger.

Five European countries, known by the acronym PIIGS are not so fortunate. These countries are: Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain. Recently serious concerns about the changing economic balance sheets of these five European Union countries have increased. These PIIGS are feeding too much at the economic borrowing trough. Pigs eat and wallow in "slop". It appears that these countries have been doing the same. They have been eating too much monetary slop lately. They have now reached the point where they are borrowing money just to pay the interest on the money they have already borrowed. They are not the only ones either. It appears that the United States, Great Britain and many other non-EU countries are not far behind them.

So, what does this have to do with me and you? Possibly nothing, but if past history is any indicator, we had better start looking for ways to protect our assets before they are confiscated; albeit through legal taxation, to pay for our countries' overeating at the slop trough. Some of us have very little to protect while others can count their assets in the millions. In the United States, 2011 will bring a whole new round of taxes with which we have to contend. There are always legal ways to protect assets for those who are in the know. Some are strategies that can be used in the States and others must be used abroad.

As a student of expatriate living concerns, I find that more and more individuals and families are looking for a less expensive destination than that of their homeland. Some do so due to their continually decreasing assets and some do so looking to protect and maximize the assets they have been able to accumulate over the years. I personally have always enjoyed periods of expatriate living. It was never about the money or assets. I simply enjoyed the experiences of living in another culture and learning about different lifestyles.

However, as the effects of world economic changes hits each of us -- some sooner than others -- we may all begin to look to other political, economic, and geographical areas for the benefits of offshore residency. Expatriate living is fast becoming accepted as a way to hedge your bets, live more economically, and have a fuller, more relaxed lifestyle. Offshore banking, offshore investments, offshore businesses, and expatriate living are all considered viable ways of ameliorating the effects of the global economic crisis. We can and should learn from the European Union PIIGS.

Leveraging From Internet Businesses In A Recovering Global Economic Melt-Down

*Leveraging from internet businesses cannot be over emphasized, why? An ardent watcher of global events would agree that even during the global economic crisis online businesses were thriving as if nothing was happening, It had alleviated hash economic climate that pervades the globe during those days. In no small way online marketing had been a solution to those who are knowledgeable in its techniques making millions wealthy.

What Leveraging On The Internet Could Mean
*Leveraging on the internet means that you ought to understand how the businesses are managed because in my years of online interactions I have noticed that not everyone who is classifies him or herself as internet guru is making money from the internet. For you to be among those who are succeeding on the internet, you should as a matter of priority LEARN the fundamentals of the business you want to venture into. Very important.

What You Need To Do Leveraging On The Internet
*You would be happy if you want to become a medical Doctor, you first go through the schools that will prepare you for such. Very disheartening to hear some online marketers complaining of not have made a dime from the internet in a long while and to crown it all, some think that online businesses is a get rich quick scheme. What an irony! You must pay the price of greatness or better still follow the masters of the businesses online before you can start leveraging on the online businesses.

Businesses You Can Leverage On The Internet
*Internet businesses are so encompassing that there are arrays of businesses you could do successfully online and make fortune. To mention but a few, you have forex traders, internet marketers, data entry, article writers, survey, stock traders. To avoid exaggeration over 90 per cent had lost their money ranging from small amount to large sums of money. The difference of the two groups is education. Expertise is the trade mark.

Products And Services You Can Leverage On The Internet
*Could you be able to cut your own piece of the CAKE? That is could you leverage on the internet? The choice is yours. You need to be educated on the businesses on the internet for if you could not do the business you could as well patronize those who sells their products on the internet. For example, there is virtually no product you cannot access or purchase on the net. Amazon.com present the choice you could be looking forward to make. The publishers present you the opportunity of purchasing products ranging from digital products to tangible ones. While ClickBank.com present you with digital products. As you access any of these products and services you are leveraging on the internet

The Global Economic Front - Avoiding Sales Pitfalls

There's no escaping the fact that the news from the global economic front is somewhat grim. With the dollar fluctuating on an almost daily basis, and with high redundancy rates and uncertain inflationary pressures, fiscal conservatism is the phrase of the day. In these leaner times, clients are understandably cautious about their financial outlays, and have become much more discerning with respect to distinguishing between 'needs' and 'wants'. The situation for business owners is undeniably challenging. And this is no less true for sales professionals, for whom it may appear that their potential client base has dwindled significantly.

But contrary to popular opinion, the forecast is not entirely negative. There are considerable reasons for optimism, even in such a tough market. In fact, the grim economic situation can actually make your job as a sales professional easier, once you understand how to use it to your advantage. This is because the key to successful sales is the ability to influence people. And the key to influencing people is evoking a positive emotional reaction in them. Of course you can go about this in a straightforward way, by simply inducing a positive correlation between your product and their emotional state. For instance, a client may feel some positive emotion (interest, hope, curiosity) when they first inquire about your product, and by simply demonstrating the benefits of your product, you will escalate their positive feeling from 'good' to 'great'. By virtue of their interaction with you, they will be induced to perceive a positive association with the product itself.

However, an even more effective technique is to stimulate, or take advantage of, a negative emotion about their current situation before demonstrating how effectively your product provides an easy, rapid solution to those negative feelings. In this instance, you effectively move the client through a dramatic range of emotions (i.e. doubt or dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs, good feelings associated with your product, a level of emotional attachment to the product in respect of that association) that culminates in a feeling of relief, enthusiasm and an inclination to purchase your product as a solution to their negative circumstances. And, what could be more negative than the uncertainty that arises in connection with the current economic climate?

So, yes, it is true that you cannot control the economy. But you can control how effectively you hone, and apply, your professional skills. Because in the end, no matter how good or bad the market, human nature itself hasn't changed - people will still buy if given enough good reasons to do so. Your role is to find new, creative approaches to help you provide those reasons convincingly. The following tips and strategies are designed to help you do just that.

Platonic-Fullerene Chemistry and Global Economic Collapse

On the 18th of February 2011, the Cornel University Library announced a quantum biological discovery by two Chinese scientists from universities in Mongolia. The scientists used mathematics to explain why proteins were folded in a strange way within DNA, in defiance of the 20th Century's scientific world-view.

An extract from the book entitled, Science-Art and Human Survival Technology, published a decade earlier by the Science-Art Research Centre of Australia, had predicted the discovery made by Liaofu Luo and Jun Lu. An extract from the book mentioning cellular membrane follows. "Evolutionary direction is provided by the constantly changing shapes of the evolving protein, which when measured, demonstrates that it is moving toward universal infinity." This concept is in defiance of the Einsteinian world-view.

The properties of the liquid crystal optic construction of the cellular membrane, at nano-scale, are considered to perceive the existence of holographic reality. This awareness is transmitted to consciousness through endorphins creating a Golden Mean pattern recognition pleasure, involving an electromagnetic process (the Greek Wisdom Through Beauty concept). The changing protein patterns are known to be expressing aspects of infinite fractal geometry, which, in ancient Mesopotamia was called sacred geometry. The geometry's association with the design of living things was taught to students including Leonardo da Vinci, during the 15th Century by Fibbonacci and Pacioli, when they introduced Babylonian mathematics to European civilisation.

Pacioli summed up this mathematical link to biology with his famous quote"Like God, the Divine Proportion is always similar to itself ", this is known today to be an expression of the infinite property of fractal logic. Such design geometry is found in the construction of living things, such as pine-cones, sunflowers and pineapples. The Molecule of Emotion, discovered in 1972 by Dr Candace Pert, evolves by increasing the speed of its molecular movement as an infinite fractal expression. The Mesopotamian mathematics can now be linked to an emotional Platonic Greek science called The science for ethical ends. However, that particular science was derived, not from the Babylonian Mystery schools, but from Mesopotamia's ancient Egyptian Mystery schools, as was discovered by the mathematician, Buckminster Fuller.

Nanotechnology has revealed that the difference between Fuller's findings from the Egyptian schools and the mathematical findings by Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein, derived from the Babylonian schools, is important. As Fuller noted, this difference is about making a choice between Utopia or Oblivion. Bertrand Russell's most popular essay, written in 1904, entitled A Freeman's Worship, insisted we must endure the continual reign of chaos and despair associated with Einstein's world-view. Their shared world-view held that the second law of thermodynamics, known also as the law of universal chaos, must always govern our scientific culture. That law of course includes the science upholding global economic rationalism.

Russell and Einstein insisted that when the universe eventually radiated all of its energy out into cold space, then all life in the universe must be destroyed. Russell referred to this miserable end to everything, as a "Universe in thermodynamic ruin." However, this concept has been proven to be incorrect. The recent CERN experiment, published by the journal Nature, showed that dying novae in the Milky Way sent cosmic radiation through millions of years of space-time to influence the development of life on earth. This cosmic radiation from novae in the Milky Way causes clouds on earth to produce rain. This discovery created chaos within the European carbon credit economy, which is now on the point of collapse. So much for global economic rationalism.

The death of a dinosaur in ancient jasper fields produced a fatty acid liquid crystal soap, which, when exposed to the same cosmic radiation, began to turn into jasper crystals. The sacred geometries can be observed in this process and mathematicians have published that the crystalline structures form infinite fractal logic statements relevant to ancient mathematical mythologies.

The mindset of Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein could never have imagined that such a phenomenon might exist. Their scientific world-view would never have suggested to them the possibility of using mathematics to discovery the relevant physics laws responsible for such a thing. To them, no scientific explanation of how sacred geometry might account for the human mythical intuition that the living process proceeded toward infinity, would have been possible. No models of life on earth, being associated with the workings of an infinite holographic universe, are allowed for under their dictum, which held that eventually all life in the universe must be destroyed.

In 1990, the Australian Science-Art Research Centre's mathematician discovered the new life energy laws, which was published by the world's largest technological research institute, IEEE-SPIE Milestone Series, as being one of the great discoveries from 20th Century literature. The Einsteinian death-wish legacy, governing Western culture's higher education system, simply prohibited mainstream science from investigating this discovery further. In 1995 an international peer review assessment of the discovery, under the auspices of the Institute for Basic Research in America, announced the discovery of the Centre's mathematics as being relevant to new physics laws governing optimum biological growth and development through space-time. The Einsteinian world-view can therefore be considered to be cancerous.

We can gain an insight into why Western culture is destroying itself, by comparing the difference between the worship of dominant religious deities of ancient Babylon and of ancient Egypt. Western mathematics and physics associated the use of sacred geometries as belonging to the mythical worship of the Babylonian Goddess Ishtar, the Goddess of sex and war. Betrand Russell in his autobiography, wrote, that during his adolescence he was very lonely and the only reason that he did not commit suicide was his wish to learn more about how ancient mathematics were linked to metaphysical philosophy.

In Russell's A History of Western Philosophy, he does seem to elevate the status of the Goddess Ishtar, although the use of sacred geometries to explain her mythical existence are extremely complex. He did however, become the most prominent British advocate of 'free love', as was published within his book entitled 'Marriage and Morals'. His appointment as a professor at the City College of New York in 1940 was annulled under a court order, which considered him morally unfit to teach at the college. His first three marriages ended in sordid public disgrace, but his attitude to sexual behaviour seemed to be of less relevance during his fourth marriage in his declining years.

Bertrand Russell was a courageous person who received a Nobel Prize for his contributions toward free thought. His personal sex life, associated with Babylonian mathematical myth however, did relate to Western scientific thought. This becomes obvious when we compare Russell's findings to Buckminster Fuller's discoveries, which were associated with the worship of ancient Egypt's mythical Goddess Maat.

Maat was the Goddess of truth and beauty who prevented the universe from reverting to chaos. In Russell's most popular essay, entitled A Freeman's Worship, he advocated the opposite, a despairing, soulless worship of chaos itself, as defined by Einstein's incorrect definition of universal chaos as being the Premier law of all science.

A comparison of the effects of intuitive mythology upon the heath of Babylonian and ancient Egyptian civilisations, reveals the enormity of the Russell-Einstein development of Western science. A 1995 governmental report entitled Sexual attitudes, preferences and infections in Ancient Egypt by Robert S Morton, reveals why global economic rationalism is actually at the point of collapse. With 'modification', the Fullerene medical science proposed by the 1996 Nobel laureates in chemistry can reverse this threat to global humanity. A United Nations mandate ensuring that the administration of governments are to be guided by a Platonic-Fullerene medical ethos, would save the day. Aristotle's concept of an ethical medical science, for the health of the universe, would provide for his ennobling government designed to prevent the destruction of civilisation, to become a reality.

Ennobling government, in which people strove to become personally responsible for continual ethical actions, judged by an ethical medical science, would be able to obtain the supra-technologies that Fuller realised were innate within the Platonic Science for ethical ends. We can thank Pythagoras for his definition of spiritual liberty, which linked it to the nature of light from his studies at the ancient Egyptian Mystery schools. Spiritual liberty is related to the electromagnet transmission of holographic awareness from the cellular membrane, the All Seeing Eye, guiding human evolution. Thomas Jefferson had some intuition of this phenomenon when he depicted the Pythagorean concept of spiritual liberty on the Great Seal of America.

In the report about ancient Egypt society being guided by worship of Maat, Robert Morton explained that ancient Egyptian mummy autopsies revealed that the incidence of sexually transmitted diseases was low compared to other Mesopotamian civilisations. Children were schooled in Maat's teachings of truth and justice up until the age of 12-14 years, when at puberty they became adult. Morton notes "the absence of any recognition of adolescence as we know and define it". The report found that "the structure functioned successfully through Ma'at and the social cement of the family". Family contentment, genuine respect for motherhood, and a democratic existence within their form of government, a lucrative export market with taxes paid by pyramid construction work, and a lack of adolescence rebellion, appeared to outline a society that Morton considered we may well envy today.

The sacred geometrical myth of the Egyptian mind-set, fused mercy and compassion into the daily life of the populace, who needed to be responsible for ethical conduct in order to be judged fit for entry into an afterlife. Following the collapse of the Egyptian First Kingdom, due to a prolonged drought, the people of the second Kingdom fused the ethics of mercy, compassion and justice into the fabric of political law. Later Greek mathematicians added the virtue of Platonic love into their Atomistic Science of universal love. This is in contrast to the scientifically unbalanced concept of modern Democracy, in which unethical greed by people, who do not feel any need to be held responsible for their actions, accelerates social chaos.

In the 5th Century AD, the custodian of the Great Library of Alexandria, the virgin mathematician, Hypatia, was murdered by a rioting Christian mob and the library's scrolls were burnt. St Augustine declared all the Mesopotamian sacred geometry mathematics to be the work of the Devil, citing the Bible's description of the Great Whore of Babylon.

Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein grew up within a society ignorant of the fact that the living process was an expression of an infinite universal fractal evolutionary process. The quicker that the United Nations establishes the new Platonic-Fullerene medical science to guide ennobling government, the quicker we can develop the human survival supra-technologies from the lost Science for ethical ends.

These Are the Days of Our Lives in Global Economics

he question is no longer are we in recession, but what are we going to do in the recession. The economic crisis in the global community has the impact in each country of sending many business owners to the brink of ruin. The businesses that survive and the entrepreneurs that have approached this market with innovative ideas and determination to succeed are making this down turn in economics a lesson in the power of positive thinking. These are the days of our lives in our global economics that have proven that in the hour of adversity and tribulation, the human spirit can still triumph and move forward.

When the economy failed and businesses were sent to bankruptcy, suicides rose at an alarming rate. When did money become more important than survival? The thought of having to struggle to get back on your feet may slay many, but here is an example of a family that pulled together and combined their resources to create a business that not only supports the family, but has given each member of the family a pretty healthy bank account to boot.

War torn Afghanistan is the home of the Wagdi family. They have lost everything, to include some family members in this time of war in their country. Their home has been reduced to rubble. Where a once beautiful four bedroom home stood, there now sits a pile of rubble that does not even closely resemble a home. Amon Wagdi was in despair. He had no way to provide for his family any longer, his home and business were gone. He was the village baker and his ovens were buried under about two tons of rubble. Amon is father to six children, three boys and three girls. In his family circle his brother's children had joined him and his wife. Their mother had been killed and their father was severely injured in an attack on his village. The surviving members joined Amon's family unit for a better chance at surviving the war together.

The males in the family pulled together and started digging the ovens out. They uncovered the first one on a Monday and by Wednesday; the women were baking and making loaves of bread to sell at the market place in the center of town. The local warehouse owner let Amon and his wife have 350 pounds of flour on credit. This micro-loan was plenty to get them started in business again.

Not everyone is in such dire circumstances. There are individuals that do not have to worry about their very survival, just keeping utilities on. Adversity is the opportunity to find new answers to old problems. Micro-loans are making it possible for entrepreneurs to start businesses that are not dependent on banks, loan companies, or the stock market.

Organic food markets are springing up all over the country in the United States. Small home organic gardens are netting some pretty serious cash. The food production industry has scared the populace because the food dyes, additives and pesticides that are used. These chemicals have some serious consequences, such as cancer. The organic products do not have all these chemicals and therefore, are more desirable on the market. Many small organic farmers are earning a living with the produce that their small gardens are providing.

Again, in an adverse situation, this time it is the commercial food industry, the organic farmers are making strides forward to create a market that supports their local economy and themselves. Micro-loans have made it possible for organic farmers from New York to Florida to California and Washington State to start small farm operations producing purely organic foods.

The global economy is dependent on these entrepreneurs being able to produce products and goods that are vital to their society. Each of us has skills that can provide a means to earn a living and move forward. Learn what interests you and figure out a way to make a business of it. The power of positive thinking is what will turn this economy around, that and lots of hard work.

Is China a Threat to the Current Global Economic Leaders?

Many contend that China is no longer a threat to the global economic leading nations. Their reasoning is because oil prices have changed the game and China is not causing price spikes due to her thirst for energy and oil. Others say that with the Shanghai index losing some 20% in a matter of a week, that her economic engine is sputtering. Still others point to China's export numbers off over 35%. But let's not forget the World GDP average is down some 8% over all.

So nations like Germany and Japan may think they have some breathing room to China's rapid advancement for GDP rankings, but I assure you, that it is temporary in nature. And realize that China does not have to be a threat to appear threatening to the world.

Anyone that says China is no longer important would be missing the point, and watching too much world media economic or political punditry TV. China is a significant player and will be from here on out. Whom China aligns herself with will be important, but in the end China is still a force and power, and she isn't going anywhere.

So, when asked; "Is China a Threat to the Current Global Economic Leaders?" the answer is clearly yes, yes she is, nothing has changed in that regard and anything you see or hear is temporary in nature, and over the course of the next decade not even a hick-up or a speed bump really. Please consider this, because China has it in the Bag!

The Global Economic Crisis' Effects on Business

The global recession prompted due to several causes is a ghastly piece of news for each and every business in every country throughout the world. The tendency adopted in this recession by companies in their pursuit to survive during the chaotic time would be to enter into reviewing the headcount, as well as freezing the budget along with numerous cost reducing measures.

Nonetheless, it is possible that the growth of the company will be stunted in case you continue with the practice or overreact to the whole situation. It is seen with recession hitting the economy many of the internationally based business were enforced to reorganize their operations. This was mainly done by ceasing the functioning of the facilities of production. Millions of working people were required to quit their jobs due to the ongoing crisis. The course of action adopted by the company should be to come in the forefront and re-invent the proceeding of your company and at the same time think of procedures for global recovery.

The crisis is faced by the business is of great magnitude. Businesses around the globe were hit so hard by the economic crisis that several businesses had to seek monetary assistance from the government in order to survive. Several industries were in jeopardy and the others were facing the threat of bankruptcy. Practically for many monetary institutions it was like floor has been swept off under their feet. And as a conclusion the power if acquiring things by the public became feeble. The consumers were once again were very conscious about the budget.

Almost all people were forced to make their decisions carefully when it came to buying something as everyone was clueless about when the recovery from recession will take place. The trends in the market place began to fluctuate along with the demand of various products. Almost every business was affected by this global economic crisis but the companies that were hard hit were the companies having large scale operation along with those who provide their services at high prices. The consumers are now turning to the businesses which render similar services at comparatively cheap prices.

Businesses that can survive this economic recession in a better way are basically small as well as medium scale industries. Nonetheless, it does not suggest that they are not hit by economic crisis. The difference primarily lies in the fact that small as well as medium scale enterprises have comparatively undersized operations and have the ability to maintain the operation with fewer revenues. Such business usually has streamline way of operation which minimizes the total effect of the global crisis for survival.

The time span required by the international economy to recover is long as the magnitude of the crisis is large. Nations will have to strive hard to restructure their economy. What is further in store for us is hazy and the lucid picture is still to emerge. However, it is hoped that businesses will retain their normal position once again.
