Smart economics suggests that India should be a member of APEC or Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation. When India does well the world benefits.   

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been making the right statements that might make this possible. In welcoming the Chinese President Mr. Xi Jinping to India Mr, Modi outlined the special chemistry that exists between both countries. He said, ‘ India and China are bound by history, connected by culture and inspired by rich traditions. Together they can create a bright future for the entire mankind.’

If this is a sales pitch or a form of ‘Modinomics’ it caught the attention of the international community. Mr Modi continued by saying that India and China can ‘ script history and make a better tomorrow for all mankind.’ Continue reading

We Should Fear the Worst from Fukushima – 50 Reasons + videos

50 Reasons We Should Fear the Worst from Fukushima

 By Harvey Wasserman – NationofChange
Published: Monday 3 February 2014
This “see no evil, pay no damages” mindset dates from the Bombing of Hiroshima to Fukushima to the disaster coming next … which could be happening as you read this.

Fukushima’s missing melted cores and radioactive gushers continue to fester in secret.

Japan’s harsh dictatorial censorship has been matched by a global corporate media blackout aimed—successfully—at keeping Fukushima out of the public eye.

But that doesn’t keep the actual radiation out of our ecosystem, our markets … or our bodies.

Speculation on the ultimate impact ranges from the utterly harmless to the intensely apocalyptic .    Continue reading

USPS – Letter Carriers Consider Bringing Back Banking Services

Saving the Post Office: Letter Carriers Consider Bringing Back Banking Services

Sunday, 12 August 2012 – By Ellen Brown, Truthout | News Analysis

On July 27, 2012, the National Association of Letter Carriers adopted a resolution at their national convention in Minneapolis to investigate the establishment of a postal banking system.

The resolution noted that expanding postal services and developing new sources of revenue are important components of any effort to save the public post office and preserve living-wage jobs; that many countries have a long and successful history of postal banking, including Germany, France, Italy, Japan and the United States itself; and that postal banks could serve the nine million people who don’t have a bank account and the 21 million who use usurious check cashers, giving low-income people access to a safe banking system. “A USPS [United States Postal Service] bank would offer a ‘public option’ for banking,” concluded the resolution, “providing basic checking and savings – and no complex financial wheeling and dealing.”

What is bankrupting the USPS is not that it is inefficient. It has been self-funded throughout its history. But in 2006, Congress required it to prefund postal retiree health benefits for 75 years into the future, an onerous burden no other public or private company is required to carry.     [Read more]

The United States could very well be next. The 22nd is the median date, meaning that in this specific time frame the quake will strike give or take a day or two.
