It's crucially important for the entire world for those two nations to cooperate.
The global economy is affected significantly by Russia-US relations.
Good news from the US for the Q2 GDP at 3.9% growth.
Now the emerging markets will pick up the baton and grow the global economy.
Peace, cooperation and trade for prosperity!
3.7% was the GDP growth of the US for the first half of 2015.
The highest growth in all the "developed" countries.
CONSUMERISM and CONSUMPTION is the main and only difference between the US economy and the rest of the world. 70% of the US economy is based on the consumer. Americans shop till they drop and spend more than they make and this moves and grows their economy.
EU, Europe, Asia, China and etc. have to learn to CONSUME in order to stimulate their economies.
China for example has the highest savings tendencies.
Loosen up and live a little.
All good but a very miniscule attempt and funding. Innovation and technology are crucially important for the EU and so is cooperation.
What I see though is that again and again you've managed to lose sight of the main targets for cooperation like Russia and China.
Apparently not everybody is losing sight though.
Check the links below.
The EU should really take action to stimulate the anemic EU economy because that pitiful 1% growth is extremely disappointing. Shengen or no shengen makes no difference when the EU economy is so bad! Perhaps loose those evil sanctions.....
Sure it all sounds good and more should be done but the reality is that the "funding alocations" in the EU and US are becoming more and more difficult since those two economies are the largest debtors in the world.
Perhaps Asia and the Emerging markets should finance those infrastructure projects since they became the largest creditors in the world.
Yeah and by all means not only Bulgaria, but the whole Balkans and other Eastern European EU members should focus on innovation, science and technology and should entirely revolutionize their economies!
Define your presence and underline your capabilities showing the world who you are and stop waiting and relaying on Apple, Intel, Microsoft, BMW, Mercedes and etc.
Villaguy, I said it's complex we are not perfect and yes there is truth in your words but here is the question to you.
What is your solution to a better world and how you suggest we fix all the issues?
Make no mistake, if you can give us a practical solution and answer you will be the next Nobel prize winner.
Societies and humanity are a very complex subject. The differences in cultures, heritage, religion and environment create different societal structures. Democracy, human rights and freedom are desirable system but sometimes hard or impossible to implement. You cannot enforce democracy and a typical example is Iraq...
Human beings and humanity are not perfect and peaceful dialog solutions should be the priority. Less friction, conflicts and loss of life should always be the main priority.
The globalization is transferring wealth, knowledge and education to the emerging markets which in term will improve standards of living and will "democritize" to a certain level those societies. The advantage of the emerging markets is cheap labour, huge labour force, huge need of development and investments.
That's why they are the future, based on statistics and market size.
Seedy, what the hecK is going on with you?
Sure in a perfect world I'm all for democracy and human rights...
In fact in the old days back in the communist system people like me destroyed that dictatorship and I come from a long family line of anticomunists BUT we are talking here about PROGRESS and development and by lifting hundreds of million of people out of poverty in the emerging world is making me nothing but happy.
That's what happened in China for example and other places. You have to be able to choose and tolerate the lesser evil because we, the world have no other option towards prosperity!
So accept reality and learn to handle it!
Seedy I'm following the trend.
I wrote on this forum 10 years ago that China will have the largest economy and today China does have the largest economy in the world growing with over a trillion dollars every year! Larger than the EU economy!
10 years ago I wrote on this forum that the future belongs to the emerging markets and today countries like Indonesia, Turkey, Iran, Mexico and etc. are having larger economies than countries like Australia, Canada, Spain and etc.
It's a different world out there, an emerging world which happens to be my hobby and life!
