… 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. …

ASEAN untapped by int'l investment community

The China Post - 2006-11-17 11:25:52

MANILA, 2006/11/13 (AFP) Despite a potential market of some 600 million people, the ASEAN region is still largely untapped by the international business community, business leaders say. In the four years from 2001 to 2005 some US$50 billion flowed into the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region compared to US$274 billion to China, according to the Manila-based Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Total net foreign direct investment into the region last year amounted to US$23.9 billion of which 60 percent went to the island state of Singapore.

"Compare this to the US$60 billion invested in China last year and you get some idea what the region is up against," says economist and president of the Philippine Business Leaders Forum, Michael Clancy.

"Business has failed to focus on the opportunities that a common ASEAN market will create," Clancy said. ASEAN groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

Clancy's group, which is a country associate of the Economist Intelligence Unit, will manage this year's ASEAN Business and Investment Summit (ASEAN-BIS) in the central city of Cebu next month.

Established four years ago by the ASEAN leaders it now forms an integral part of the annual summit.

Donald Dee, head of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) and national host of the ASEAN-BIS said: "ASEAN is on the way to becoming a common market of almost 600 million consumers." He said structural changes put in place in recent years coupled with the quickening pace of ASEAN economic and political integration is making the region an attractive investment destination with its young and growing population.

This year, for the first time, the ASEAN business leaders summit will open its doors to the wider global business community.

"Our intention is to be inclusive rather than exclusive," Dee said.

"Multinationals and other foreign businesses operating within ASEAN are legitimate stakeholders in developments within the region and we want them to contribute to the dialogue process," Dee added.

According to Clancy, the achievements and opportunities of Southeast Asia, dominated by ASEAN, tend to be neglected in the boardrooms of London, New York and Dubai.

Despite China's overcapacity it is still attractive to investors, but China has failed to deliver on its early promises and the expected consumer market continues to elude major corporations, he says.

The rapid rise of local firms has meant that for many global companies seeking a slice of the Chinese market an investment in China has meant falling prices, falling margins and in some cases total loss of competitiveness.

"Many companies are finding that there is a hidden cost of doing business in China," Clancy said.

"One survey recently suggested that many companies were worried about their inability to conduct due diligence on local partners or suppliers.

"Cost and quality of living for expatriate staff remains a problem and finding and retaining talent is a growing problem.

"Problems of intellectual property protection abound and supply chain management is also a major concern for many companies," Clancy said.

"Increasingly, global companies are coming to the realization that while an Asian presence is essential to their global growth strategy, total reliance on either China or India to provide that presence is undesirable.

"'China plus one' appears to be a hedging strategy that many companies are now adopting. Southeast Asia and in particular the 10 ASEAN countries are well placed to take advantage of this development," Clancy says.

He said the four-day meeting should be seen in the light of how ASEAN is moving towards developing an all-embracing economic and trading policy framework for the region with the help of the international business community.

It will also focus on specific sectoral changes taking place and the opportunities and challenges these changes will create for business.

"This is a golden opportunity for the global business community to take a lead, together with their ASEAN counterparts, rather than remaining on the sidelines and being critical of the slow pace which ASEAN is coming together," Clancy said.
