World Problems

Recommended Posts

I am not trying to turn this into an Anarchistic/Radical/ Revolutionary website. It is by it's nature a Capitalist website. That being said, what do you think are some of the biggest problems facing the world?

 

War is a given. I would like to add Income Inequality, And the growing incarceration rate

( at least in my country).

Sustainable resources and population growth. Although, that's a problem that the planet will eventually solve on it's own.

 

I might add: Entrenched ideologies and politics.

"Entrenched ideologies and politics"

 

That's a very good one. And I agree. But I hope the thread does not boil down to a

Left/Right bashing party.

 

And yes, sustainable resources will take care of itself,

Not to worry... I'm an equal opportunity basher. We create our own problems; it can't be helped we are but human. More correctly, I may have omitted the word "politics", as it just confuses the issue.

today its my wife!

Yesterday she claimed it was me.

 

...............more seriously.

 

I think its a recurring problem in world history but I think this reverberates across a lot of issue these days and is getting worse. (it could arguably be applied to politics, religion, personal life...etc)

 

The issue boils down to one of shifting risk and not taking responsibility.

 

This is largely a result of corporatisation (and dont worry I am a capitalist also) and the the fact that now you have corporates that have more rights than individuals, more power than governments, individuals within the companies that have little personal responsibility, get paid for failure and basically have to answer to few people.....I could go on, but I think you get the message....and yet I dont advocate govt doing a better job.

 

No accountability.

 

This has resulted in compliance gone crazy and everyone who can writing 50 page legal documents saying all care no responsibility and f..k you if it goes wrong because ultimately some other sucker will end up paying.

 

(not sure where this rant is going as i am enjoying the day :), but this is an issue I am seeing more and more these days. Maybe I should just join the boat...anyone wanna buy a bridge?:rofl:)

The biggest problem is the mentality of people. We do not value things that must be valued but all we think about is to how to make money. We are growing with the mentality "how to get money" instead of "how to become a better person" and this is the biggest problem.

 

On the other hand this atmosphere is created for us.. we are left no time to even think about what is happening aound

1. Too many people sucking on the goverment teet.

 

Do not think for a moment that I am referring only to the low income or impoverished. The wealthy or special interest groups snag a much bigger chunk than the poor do. he poor receive a pittance in comparison. We could easily fund the poor. We need to borrow to fund the wealthy.

when I read this I had a laugh and googled "images for people on camera phones"

Nothing funnier than watching people film something they are watching live, rather than experiencing it. Maybe I am old school....buy the DVD for later and enjoy the moment...... but often we choose not to think about what is happening around us.

    • Came back to check on price after an hour of meditation, EU came within 3 ticks of target... Fascinating the ego brings up the story of betrayal, as if the market was out there to get me. I then reminded myself cool, this trade went over 2R. Even better yet, I acted consistently with executing my trading plan! Let the market do its thing. 
    • I took this limit long on the retest of the earlier 123 and support area. Target is near top of the zone. I notice that my target needs to be more mechanical in the sense that I may be influence to have a more/less aggressive target based on the results of the last trade. I have collected some modifications for the next batch of trades. 
    • Correction: the GU made it to 45 out of a 49 tick target. It was a 2.5R full target, not 3R. The EU long trade was 7:15am EST. I will refrain from getting up even earlier with the goal of not missing the next one. I notice after each trade, the mind, with the desire of wanting to experience a win, subtly pushes me to deviate from trading plan. My main concern with this set of 20 trades is build a greater sense of consistency in my execution and self trust. I realized the outcome of each individual trade absolutely does not matter. If I started to care about it, I am assuming that somehow I am responsible for the market's movement, which I am not. I am only responsible for following my trading plan, which can be adjusted after the 20 trades based on the stats I collect. 
    • GU closed for -1R. It made it to 2.8R but not quite the 3R. There was also a EU long trade that happened about 4:15am EST. FOMC is over now so let's see if we can get a nice trend setup today.  
    • Date : 22nd August 2019. MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 22nd August 2019. FX News Today * FOMC minutes did not provide strong clues on the direction of rates. * However, the lack of a signal that the Fed’s July rate cut was the start of an easing cycle was enough to eventually weigh on Treasuries. * Asian stock markets struggled as investors continued to digest the implications of yesterday’s Fed minutes and trading conditions remained quieter than usual ahead of Powell’s speech at Jackson Hole tomorrow. * Yields closed at their highs of the session after holding cheap levels all session. The curve narrowed below 1 bp as the short end underperformed. * US President Trump continued to criticize the Fed Chairman, while suggesting the US may strike a deal on trade, but that didn’t prevent US futures from heading south overnight. * Topix and Nikkei are currently down -0.13% and -0.09% respectively, despite improvements in PMI readings that were counterbalanced by an as expected decline in the All Industry Index. * The WTI future meanwhile fell back to $55.45 per barrel.   * Brexit: Merkel gives Johnson 30 days to solve Backstop conundrum. * Johnson is today expected in Paris, where the tone is likely to be harsher than in Berlin, although both Merkel and Macron have stressed that they are ready for a no-deal Brexit if there is no agreement. * The UK curve remains inverted out to the 10-year area. Charts of the Day Technician’s Corner *USDJPY printed a two-day low, at 106.28.The biggest mover, not surprisingly, has been AUDJPY, a forex market barometer of shifting risk-appetite patterns in global markets. The cross was showing a 0.5% loss heading into the London interbank open, and was testing one-week lows at 71.90. Next Support stands at 71.76 and 71.60. Resistance is at the pivot 72.20 level. Main Macro Events Today * Jackson Hole Symposium – Day 1 * Services and Manufacturing PMI (EUR, GMT 07:30-08:00) – July PMI readings highlighted manufacturing weakness. This picture is likely to be seen again in the preliminary readings for August, as Manufacturing PMI has been forecast at 46.3 from 46.5 last month, still down from 47.6 in June, and indicates a deepening recession in a sector that has been hit very hard by global trade tensions and no-deal Brexit risks. Meanwhile, Services PMI is expected to fall to 52.7 from 53.2. * Services and Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 13:45) – Preliminary Manufacturing is expected to grow in August, to 51.0 from 50.4, as Services PMI is likely to fall to 51.7 from 53. * New Zealand Retail Sales (NZD, GMT 22:45) – Usually considered an index of consumer confidence and overall consumption in the economy, higher retail sales point to higher consumption and hence higher economic growth which is good for the currency.
