… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Indonesia Calls For Rewrite of Free Trade Pact With China

Indonesia has asked to re-write a new regional trade pact with China, citing fears of job losses due to a flood of cheap Chinese imports across various sectors, officials said Wednesday.

The government has sought to maintain 228 tariff lines for another two years rather than cut them as required under the Asean-China Free Trade Area (ACFTA), which Jakarta first signed in 2002 and took full effect on January 1.

“The letter of notification on negotiations to discuss modifications to the 228 tariff items was submitted on December 31,” Trade Ministry official Gusmardi Bustami said.

Trade Minister Mari Pangestu has refused to comment on the pact and would not confirm that a formal request for further protection had been sent to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean).

“I won’t comment on the notification letter. I’ve informally discussed the 228 tariff items with Asean,” she told reporters in response to repeated requests for clarification of Indonesia’s position.

She had previously said only that Indonesia would honour its commitments under the free trade pact.

Industry ministry spokesman Muhdori said a two-year reprieve from zero tariffs was required in sectors including electronics, machinery, furniture, steel, textiles and chemicals.

Asean officials have said it would be strange for Indonesia, which has the biggest economy in Southeast Asia, to try to back out of its commitments at such a late date.

Any such request for a delay in tariff reductions would go against ASEAN’s long-standing drive toward more open regional markets and would require the agreement of the nine other Asean members, which is unlikely.

The ACFTA comprises a market of 1.9 billion people, making it the largest trade pact in the world in terms of population size.

It has a combined gross domestic product of some six trillion dollars and a total trade volume of 4.3 trillion dollars, according to Asean figures.

Indonesian industry bodies have complained that the government has failed to prepare domestic producers to compete with Chinese goods, a failure acknowledged by the industry ministry spokesman.

“The reason for the delay is because we want local industries to be ready for competition with imported goods,” Muhdori said.

Indonesian Furniture Producers Association executive director Tanangga Karim welcomed the government’s request for a delay amid fears that hundreds of thousands of Indonesian workers could lose their jobs.

“A local computer desk made from particle wood sells for about Rp 600,000 ($65). A Chinese computer desk made from similar materials can sell for about 400,000 here,” Karim said.

“The free trade agreement between Asean and China will spell huge job losses at the big furniture makers here. Tens of thousands of employees could be laid off soon.”

Indonesian Employers Association chairman Sofyan Wanandi said that while some sectors would benefit from cheaper Chinese inputs and access to Chinese markets, on the whole the ACFTA was bad for Indonesia.

“Our products can’t compete with cheap Chinese products and as a result many factories will close down and there will be unemployment,” he said.

Asean officials have said Southeast Asian consumers stand to benefit from cheaper goods such as Chinese-made mobile phones, while regional manufacturers would be better placed to piggy-back on China’s industrial development.
