Over recent decades this world has drawn economies together with the (alleged) intent of preventing wars. But if you think about it, is that not the first step toward creating a one world government? As they say, isn’t it about the money?
Consider this quoted text from a financial newsletter I received.
The global economy is no longer about making a product in one country, and shipping and selling it somewhere else. It is about complex supply chains that weave together activities all over the globe, supported by investment, technology, and skills that know no borders.
Creating an even playing field is no longer just about reducing external tariffs and quotas, but about coordinating and sometimes revising what have traditionally been seen as domestic policies to “stabilize” agriculture, promote national culture and identity, encourage innovation, protect health and safety, and ensure citizens a certain minimum quality of life.
Critics of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) argue it is no mere “trade” deal, and they are right: more accurately, it is a package of integrated economic policies that will increasingly fuse several national economies into a single marketplace.
Now I don’t know about you, but when you speak to me about ‘countries without borders’ and ‘a single marketplace’, I begin to see one government — several countries without borders between them. And, if you follow this line of thinking a bit further, you will see competition which strangles the ‘average guy’ when trying to earn a living. That meaning, that the ‘workers of the world’ should be making much less than they do now comparatively. Primarily when compared to other countries, it means to me that the American worker will be crushed by what’s coming.
Consider these charts and then ask yourself, “What does this have to do with me?”
Now consider this important point, which jobs are not easily shipped overseas? What I get out of this information is one had best be keeping up with their skills — not necessarily their list of degrees.
Consider two people: One goes to college and gets a degree in business, the other gets a degree in nursing. Which would have a job in tough times? I would assume the nurse. Why? Because he/she has specific technical skills not easily transferred to a factory worker in China. (And that job also requires you to be where the patient is located.) Whereas the generalist with the degree in business may be very successful and make a lot of money, he may also be in the unemployment line due to an excess number of similar people fighting for that one job he may want. Why? Because this country has an excess of kids getting degrees that get them no job at graduation!! About 30% of college students today make something exceptional of themselves after graduating college.
Wishing and hoping for success doesn’t work. Sound planning and hard work bring success.
