… 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. …

Commodity Prices Pose Big Risk in 2010: Sri Mulyani Indrawati


Commentary by Sri Mulyani Indrawati

Dec. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Indonesia can look back at 2009 as a major outperformer, being one of the few countries in the world where gross domestic product expanded over the year.

The structure of the economy, which isn’t overly dependent on exports, clearly helped. The government’s efforts to protect the most vulnerable social groups through its cash handouts and support to businesses through tax measures -- all equivalent to 1.6 percent of GDP -- were key to the success. The timing of the presidential elections in July was fortuitous and the re- election of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has resulted in continued stability, allowing the country to weather the global storm.

There are a few things that recent experience has taught us.

First, the world economy is much more integrated today than it was 10 years ago. This implies a greater need for dialogue and coordination between policy authorities to have desired outcomes, as no country lives in isolation. The timing, speed and magnitude of policy support made 2009 mostly a success.

Second, the government needs to be able to undertake counter-cyclical policy measures to support the economy. This means that continued commitment to fiscal consolidation, especially in boom years, is imperative.

Third, the conservatism and prudence in the banking industry that Indonesia adopted after the 1997 Asian crisis allowed our financial system to come out relatively unscathed in the recent turmoil.

Better Footing

We remain committed to strengthening the system -- with the establishment of a financial supervisory agency as mandated by law -- and to following through on bureaucratic reform.

Indonesia enters 2010 with optimism because the global economy is on a better footing and most of our trading partners have come out of recession. It’s not a time to be complacent, but it’s an opportunity to take Indonesia to the next level.

We must also remain vigilant of developments, such as those that recently took place in Dubai. Recent experience has shown that a single event can have strong repercussions on activity and sentiment around the globe.

The big risk for 2010 is rising commodity prices, with food and oil being key, as these have the potential to feed into inflationary expectations at home.

Accelerating inflation eats into disposable incomes, with the poor and the unemployed being affected the most. The government is ready to help the vulnerable groups in society if such a situation were to unfold.

Oil Prices

Higher oil prices will also have an impact on the budget, primarily through the subsidy cost. However, we have some leeway, as there is an emergency fund within the budget that will allow the country to manage subsidies up to an average price of $85 per barrel for oil in 2010.

Over time, we are committed to the idea of gradually moving toward a market-based pricing of oil-related products so as to free up more space in the budget to boost investment spending.

Given the developments of the last two years, we believe that investors are going to be more discerning when deploying capital. This means that Indonesia will be facing stiff competition from others in the region to attract capital.

In this regard, we aim to improve the investment climate in the country by continuing our anti-corruption drive and making it easier to set up a business in Indonesia.

Indonesia has already taken steps to do this. It now takes only 60 days to start a business compared with 105 a few years ago, closing in on the East Asian average of 40 days. More needs to be done, especially on the infrastructure front, which is very important to the current government.

The country also has a goal to gain an investment-grade rating before 2014.
