China Brazil claim for a new monetary system, from ePluribus Media, by Chris White, 24th March 2009.

 

……..Back in January and February China concluded a series of long term, 20 year, agreements for the supply of fuel with Russia, Venezuela and Brazil, and then later, a new set of agreements with Iran. China has also been making deals with Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia and with companies like Rio Tinto. In the US these are viewed as primarily financial deals, and discussed as loans, China is lending money. It could be though that these kinds of arrangements typify what Xiao Chuan means when he talks of separating commodity pricing and settlement from the credit functions of a reserve currency. There doesn’t need to be one single moment for the emergence of such a new arrangement. Just a series of continuing agreements for the long term supply of products and services where the deals are priced on a dollar unit of account and settled on the basis of a basket of non-dollar currencies mixed with gold and perhaps oil. These transactions wouldn’t need the creation of “money.” Balances would be closed out in whatever the reference basket was made up of.—-

Comments: failure of actual Monetary System encompassing all currencies is hitting human imagination looking for “something” better. In less than 10 thousand years man have tried many forms of “money” interchange and lately from paper to plastic and more recently to e-money. In the hypothesis we are not going back to Paleolithic Era and with no depopulation catastrophes at sight the challenge seems not a trivial matter.

Subject: Homeless, urban poverty

Tents on wheels give homeless people roof and pride, Homeless Tents, a Living Series by CNN

 

 

Story Highlights

A Los Angeles-based charity has begun distributing makeshift tents;

Charity was brainchild of “Revenge of the Nerds” movie producer Peter Samuelson;

“This is $500 to get a man or a woman or a child off the damp concrete,” he says;

Homeless man: “Everybody calls it the hobo condo”.

 

Comments: homeless as a concept has 35+Million references in Google, more than immigrants that hast 31.5 and of course both embedded in poverty with 68. At large both are “out of the system” expressions. Both also are the first eruptions of the Multitude phenomenon.

Attacks on the Homeless Rise, With Youths Mostly to Blame, By AMY GREEN, Published: February 15, 2008, NYT

 

……..Nationwide, violence against the homeless is soaring, and overwhelmingly the attackers are teenagers and young adults. In Florida the problem is so severe that the National Coalition for the Homeless is setting up speakers bureaus to address a culture that sees attacking the homeless as a sport. It is the first time the organization has singled out a particular state.

 

Comments: It’s not only a problem of national and “natives” versus immigrants and in general people “inside the system” against people “outside the system” but a problem of the arousal of our lowest and perverse instincts. As in socioeconomic scenarios the dialectic is not the clash of rich versus poor but the frustration discharges of a social group against its circumstantially diminished neighbor at large the perverse escapism need of others being humiliated.
