an economic storm is coming – get your boat ready: Globalization is over

Well a lot of groups actually campaigned for this – “stop CETA, TTIP, NAFTA” – global trade – especially if unfairly subsidized by a government – is going down. Not only because of Trump tariffs – but because of a slow global growth anyhow.

The last “tiger” was China – with millions of people that wanted to get a their hands on an iphone and out of poverty.

Now they all got iphones – what’s next? The next iphone? Com’ on! They not gonna buy this!

Artificially making products bad so customers will have to rebuy? Also a corrupt and catastrophic strategy that also damages a brand’s reputation for quality.

Guys face it – We are already in an post-growth era – what this means especially for finance: interest rates? what interest rates?

Interest rates can only exist if there is growth – if there i no growth – how on earth can pay interest rates? nobody.

This and also because of the “magic trick” of private banks to turn 10USD into 100USD by loan-with-interest.

Consume, consume until there is nothing left to consume – will not do it.

So we will consume less – recycle more – actually start talking to our neighbors again – because – suddenly – people need each other’s help again – because the monetary system just failed with no alternative in sight.

Thats what you should read in your christmas break:

Mankind’s theories about economics needs to become more clever – if it wants or not.

What this means – is – we have to change our ways of life – our way of producing – fresh water – food – energy – transportation – everything needs to become more sustainable – less dependent on imported energy that (most industrialized nations) we do not possess. Anyone that prevents this – is actually increasing the catastrophe of civil unrest and war.

A perverting fact: “short stocks” – the finance market does magic – by making money while the economy is going down.

This has nothing to do with real-life-economy and is only possible in the world of finance – any bakery that sells 20% less bread will have to send 20% of it’s staff into unemployment – nobody profits here – the only way the economy has is become 20% more efficient – which is almost impossible – even for Germany and Japan (the workoholic economies).

There need to be new concepts – instead of believing that the old concepts will last forever. They will last – until catastrophe – civil unrest – civil war – war – strikes – 1984 style of war – constant warfare – just to keep people from revolting.

Hermann Scheer: “There need to be new methods of distribution – or we will enter a new era of barbarianism – this is inevitable”

Recessions of all forms and shapes

The type and shape of recessions are distinctive. In the US, v-shaped, or short-and-sharp contractions followed by rapid and sustained recovery, occurred in 1954 and 1990–91; U-shaped (prolonged slump) in 1974–75, and W-shaped, or double-dip recessions in 1949 and 1980–82. Japan’s 1993–94 recession was U-shaped and its 8-out-of-9 quarters of contraction in 1997–99 can be described as L-shaped. Korea, Hong Kong and South-east Asia experienced U-shaped recessions in 1997–98, although Thailand’s eight consecutive quarters of decline should be termed L-shaped.[11]

Psychological aspects

Recessions have psychological and confidence aspects. For example, if companies expect economic activity to slow, they may reduce employment levels and save money rather than invest.

Intro: You can bet. Israel does not give up. It will try to weaken all Arabic states it is surrounded by – by all means possible – while carefully nurturing “the enemy” the “Islamic terrorist” (so does China now by the way too! it also inprisons Muslims in east China) to make more defense spending legitimate and control it’s people (“rally behind the flag“).

Israel/Jerusalem was conquered 70 times in history – the longest lasting peace was during the rule of the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) – where at least 4 ethnic groups/religions lived more or less peacefully next to each other. Building walls never solved any problems – but radical jews do not want to solve problems – they believe they are the chosen one’s to kick out all Arabs – claim all the land – rebuild the temple – and maybe even rule the world – and by controlling banks and money they actually do already.

“In the aftermath of the strikes, on 24 September 2018, Russian defense minister Sergei Shoigu  confirmed that the Syrian army would receive S-300 air-defense missile systems to strengthen Syria’s combat air defense capabilities.

He added that the previous cancellation of the contract for S-300 delivery in 2013 had been due to Israel’s request but following the downing of a Russian Ilyushin Il-20 aircraft in Syria the situation had changed.[434][435][436]

The S-300 has modern IFF systems which will prevent the missiles from targeting Russian aircraft.[437] He also announced a few other military measures Russia would undertake to protect Russian service members in Syria.[436] Russian president Vladimir Putin informed Syrian president Bashar Assad in a telephone conversation the same day.[438]” (src)

“A Russian electronic surveillance Il-20 plane was downed over the Mediterranean Sea late on September 17 2018 when it was flying back to the Russian airbase at Syria’s Hmeymim.”

“According to the Russian defense ministry, the plane was shot down by a missile from a Syrian S-200 air defense complex when it was firing at four Israeli F-16 aircraft attacking targets in the Latakia governorate. The Israeli pilots actually used the Russian aircraft as a cover, exposing it to Syrian missiles, the ministry stressed.” (src)

“The Israeli delegation has arrived in Russia to hand data on the incident to the Russian side”
“the Russian Defense Ministry stated that the Il-20 aircraft had been accidently downed by Syrian air defenses as the Israeli F-16 jets had been using it as cover.” (src)

Israel:

Fun fact – also Israelis do not want war. Mabye it would be best to create a new Israel and ship the temple as well to be reconstructed in Sardenia – does God really care where it’s temple will be? I know it sounds crazy but it would be probably easier – for you can never eradicate all Muslims around you – but if that is not the plan – 1984 seems to be the plan – constant warfare just to keep the people “in check” and “under control”.

Russia copies USA:

The end of the “Cold war” was bad for Lockheed Martin. Also the government was puzzled – where to spend all those US Dollars that are now not needed anymore for intercontinental nuclear missiles and missile defense systems?

Well guess what – i bet exactly those companies finance terrorism and fuel war – they create the sickness and sell the cure at the same time – all for the profit.

After the overthrow of the government in the Ukraine on the “front door” of Russia and actually “inside” the ex-Soviet Union – Russia copies the west – overthrows governments in East-Ukraine and Krim.

War – what is it good for? Privatizing public money – making money flow from the “state” (whoever pays taxes) to those that have contracts with the military (government).

If taxes are not sufficient – governmental debt is the “way to go”. After WW2 England was heavily in debt with USA which let to the meeting of Bretton Woods – in which was negotiated how those massive debt in foreign currency ought to be repaid (it had to be canceled after a while).

Germanybtw. also got credit for rebuilding after WW2 from USA – that was just recently paid back fully – at the same time USA’s weapons companies made the profit of their lifes and have grown beyond any proportion. the Marshall plan – A Look back at the Marshall Plan – Sobell 1987-6-2.txt

1984

Jacque Fresco (March 13, 1916 – May 18, 2017, age: 101) was an American futurist[1] and self-described social engineer.[2] Self-taught, he worked in a variety of positions related to industrial design. (src)

A great thinker of our time, Jacque says he can build a house for $5,250 (today USD? or 1960 USD? probably today 15.000€, still very cheap) that can be build with 8 men in 10 hours – if concrete foundation already in place.

he built planes – that’s i guess – why he wants to use Aluminum for the roof…?

Actually not a bad idea X-D depends on the thickness of the Aluminum.

pros: will last 500 years X-D

cons: while a lot of brilliant ideas make complete sense – the law and market situation needs to be kept in mind.

Market situation: people need affordable housing – check.

Law situation: Aluminum requires a lot of energy in the production, thus companies move to iceland – because there you have a lot of geothermal (renewable) cheap energy.

also: a square house allows wind and storm more “attack surface” – i would go with a more aerodynamic shape 🙂 that SHOULD withstand a hurricane – anything else will not survive climate change. also: can it withstand a bush fire or easily repaired after such event?

I think “OpenSource” – sharing housing plans for free – “WikiHouse” is “THE WAY” to go: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WikiHouse

Because it allows mankind (especially students of architecture) to dedicate thinking, design and planing – thanks to the Internet –  on a global scale – maybe someone can “OpenSource” Jacque’s plans 🙂

Ein großer Denker unserer Zeit – er starb im Alter von 101 Jahren.

Jacque meint er kann ein Haus für $5,250 bauen (vermutlich heute 15.000€)

er hat Flugzeuge gebaut, deswegen will er für das Dach Aluminium verwenden…?

Eigentlich keine schlechte Idee X-D kommt auf die Dicke des Aluminiums an, Aluminium benötigt sehr viel Energie in der Herstellung, hält dafür 500 Jahre X-D
