Kol kas jokių "globalaus sprogimo" požymių. Pasaulinės (išskyrus Kiniją) ekonominės stagnacijos sąlygomis krestelėjo finansų rinkos - tai normalu, pasitaiko akcijos pakrenta.

US stock market authorities have been forced to suspend the futures market on the Nasdaq index.
Panicking traders have driven it down 5% - the maximum allowed under Wall Street rules before a circuit-breaker is triggered.

BEIJING, Sept 2 (Reuters) - China's new international development bank will offer loans with fewer strings attached than the World Bank, sources said, as Beijing seeks to change the unwritten rules of global development finance.

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) will require projects to be legally transparent and protect social and environmental interests, but will not ask borrowers to privatise or deregulate businesses for loans, four sources with knowledge of the matter said.

By not insisting on some free market economic policies recommended by the World Bank, the AIIB is likely to avoid criticism levelled against its rivals, who some say impose unreasonable demands on borrowers.

It could also help Beijing stamp its mark on a bank regarded by some in the government as a political as much as an economic project, and reflects scepticism in China about the virtues of free market policies advocated in the West.

"Privatisation will not become a conditionality for loans," said a source familiar with internal AIIB discussions, but who declined to be named because he is not authorised to speak publicly on the matter.

"Deregulation is also not likely to be a condition," he added. "The #AIIB will follow the local conditions of each country. It will not force others to do this and do that from the outside."

/.../ The bank, to which some 50 countries have signed up to join, also aims to have a simpler internal review and risk assessment system for projects compared with its peers to hold down costs and cut red tape, sources said.

For one, the AIIB is not expected to delay some project approvals by months to allow all parties to do due diligence, a practice in place at other development banks, said a source familiar with the matter.

The bank will also minimise expenditure by having only a handful of field offices and a staff strength of between 500 and 600, about a sixth of the size of the Asian Development Bank ( #ADB) and 5 percent of the #WorldBank, he said.

AT LEAST BREAK EVEN

A successful AIIB that sets itself apart from the World Bank would be a diplomatic triumph for #China, which opposes a global financial order it says is dominated by the United States and under-represented by developing nations.
* New development bank won't insist on privatisation-sources * Looser lending rules seen as challenge to World Bank, ADB * China's AIIB wants to start operations by year-end * World Bank, ADB, play down

Pats rašė?

1. Birželį CEPA (Center for European Policy Analysis) paskelbė garsiojo mūsų regiono eksperto Edwardo Lucaso analitinę studiją „Artėjanti audra. Baltijos jūros regiono saugumo raportas“ („The Coming Storm. Baltic Sea Security Report“), kuriame pagrįstai išdėstė, kad kitu Rusijos agresijos taikiniu yra Baltijos jūros regionas (“Nordic-Baltic-Poland 9” (NBP9), pagal E. Lucasą), nes čia Vladimiras Putinas gali tikėtis išbandyti NATO pajėgumą gintis nuo hibridinės agresijos. Labiausiai tikėtina hibridinės agresijos priežastis – provokacijos su tranzitu į Kaliningradą. /.../

Kokias išvadas turime pasidaryti ir kuo turime rūpintis:

1. Baltijos regiono šalys (NBP9) realiai gali būti kitu Rusijos agresijos taikiniu. Ypač pažeidžiamos yra 3 Baltijos šalys. Vienas iš pavojingiausių faktorių visame Baltijos regione dėl potencialių provokacijų yra tranzitas į Kaliningradą.

Mokslas vakarų kolonializmo įrankis

GJ: Viewed from afar, the world seems almost on the brink of conceding that there are no truths, only competing ideologies — narratives fighting narratives. In this epistemological warfare, those with the most power are accused of imposing their version of reality — the “dominant paradigm” — on the rest, leaving the weaker to fight back with formulations of their own. Everything becomes a version.
Ideas like these have been playing out in the background as native Hawaiian protesters continue to delay the construction of a new telescope on Mauna Kea that they say would desecrate a mountaintop where the Sky Father and Earth Mother gave birth to humankind. Last month, they staged a demonstration at the annual meeting of the International Astronomical Union in Honolulu.
There are already 13 telescopes on the mountain, all part of the Mauna Kea Science Reserve, which was established by the state in 1968 on what is widely considered the premier astronomical vantage point in the Northern Hemisphere. After I wrote about the controversy last fall, I heard from young anthropologists, speaking the language of postmodernism, who consider science to be just another tool with which Western colonialism further extends its “cultural hegemony” by marginalizing the dispossessed and privileging its own worldview.
More than ever, the best available science doesn’t seem to change minds in a civilization of competing ideologies.

Mosleris apie Krugmano ~leftizmą.

The larger problem with this editorial is that the wrong reasons it gives for what’s largely the right policy are out of paradigm reasons that the opposition routinely shoots down and shouts down, easily convincing the electorate that they are correct and the ‘headline left’ is wrong.

Nuomonių skirtumas tarp pasaulinio garso fin-analitikų. Bet girdėjau nuomonę, kad ekonomika - tai politikos išraiška, o ne mokslas. Todėl visos teorijos kam nors 'patarnauja", bet ne atskleidžia tiesą (t.y. kaip turėtų daryt mokslas). O bendrai - skola gerai, kai už ją nėra kam mokėti procentų. Ir tie, iš ko pasiskolinta - "numiršta" greičiau, nei prisimena , kad turi didelį didelį ir suktą skolininką.
