… 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 Rising: What a Difference a Decade Makes

Jakarta Globe, Andrew Marshall, May 24, 2010

Singapore. Indonesia is the big winner as Southeast Asia’s investment landscape is transformed, with politics driving the tectonic shifts in market perceptions.

Thailand, the archetypal Asian tiger long a favored destination for global conglomerates and emerging markets investors, is increasingly being viewed as the region’s basket case, as chronic political conflict batters its image.

As protesters paralyzed central Bangkok in a protracted standoff that exploded into gun battles and arson attacks in the heart of the capital’s business district, Indonesia has been experiencing a profound shift in how it is viewed by fund managers and multinationals.

A decade ago it was regarded as among the world’s riskiest countries, riven by sectarian and ethnic violence, and crippled by rampant corruption.

Even 18 months ago, in the global panic that ensued after Lehman Brothers collapsed, investors desperate to lower their risk exposure dumped the rupiah and local stocks.

Now Indonesia is on course to achieve sovereign investment grade and is widely regarded as deserving inclusion in the BRICs bloc of emerging markets that investors cannot afford to ignore.

Across the region, whether driving markets up or down, political risk is back at the top of the investor agenda.

“As sovereign debt concerns in Europe unfold, risk aversion is spreading across global financial markets, and political events in Asia are likely to receive more scrutiny than usual,” Standard Chartered said in a research note this month.

While it is clear that political risk is central to market performance in Asia, quantifying it and predicting its impact on asset prices is anything but a straightforward process.

One of the most respected gauges of political risk is the World Governance Indicators data set produced annually with the support of the World Bank. They aggregate a large number of risk ratings from several sources, and they paint a telling picture.

In 2002, they rated Thai political stability at 59.1 out of 100. By 2008, it had dived to 12.9. Events since then will have dragged it even lower. Over the same period, Indonesia saw strong gains, while the Philippines drifted sideways.

Those trends have been mirrored in flows of portfolio funds and foreign direct investment. Following the re-election of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono last year, Indonesia has seen a surge in inflows, Thailand the reverse.

Deutsche Bank, in a report this month on the region that focused heavily on politics, ranked Thailand as the least attractive of the major regional markets.

“Our pecking order: Indonesia, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand,” it said.

Sovereign ratings are another key gauge.

Indonesia is being steadily upgraded toward investment level while Thailand risks further downgrades. Moody’s has a negative outlook on its Baa1 rating on Thailand and warned on Monday that “a protracted undermining of investor sentiment would have adverse effects on Thailand’s longer term credit fundamentals.”
