The Global Financial System Today?


Global Financial System



What will trigger the next phase of this Crisis? No one knows for sure, but based on the fault lines already evident, these are a possibility:

  • The inevitable breakup of the European Union with the consequences of massive bank defaults in Europe triggering worldwide bank defaults as the interconnected trillions of derivatives are lit like a string of firecrackers.
  • A sudden Greece like surge in interest rates on Japanese bonds results in a collapse of their debt ridden economic system, with reverberations throughout the world.
  • The Middle East tinderbox explodes as Israel attacks Iran and the law of unintended consequences takes hold. Alliances and treaties would draw Turkey into war with Syria and Iran. Russia and China could side against the U.S. Iran and their vassals would unleash terrorist attacks and disruption of Middle Eastern oil would drive prices over $200 per barrel, crushing the American economy.
  • A showdown on the debt ceiling and/or fiscal cliff results in a stock market crash, derailing the pitiful fledgling recovery created by Ben Bernanke’s QE to infinity measures.
  • A tipping point is reached with regards to the amount of debt that can be accumulated by our Federal, State and Local governments. A cascade of defaults could lead to a loss of faith in the U.S. dollar and a surge in interest rates. The defaults and increased interest on the national debt could lead to mass depression or in a worst case scenario – hyperinflation.
  • A large terrorist attack in one or more American cities would cause chaos, panic and fear, leading to more government control over our daily lives. This could trigger a counter response by those fed up with an overbearing government presence.
  • A catastrophic natural disaster or series of natural disasters would reveal the fragile nature of our just in time economic system. A breakdown of our logistical and infrastructure systems would lead to chaos and mass hysteria as the citizens who believed their government leaders would keep them safe, secure, warm, and fed realized it was all a sham. Their leaders were in it for the power and riches, not looking out for the best interests of the common folk.

No one knows for sure what will trigger the next leg down during this Crisis, but I can guarantee you that things will not be getting better in the near future.

Alberta Agriculture Exports


Alberta Agriculture Exports


In 2011, Alberta’s international exports of primary and processed agricultural and food products(agri-food) increased 19.0% to $8.1 billion, from $6.8 billion in 2010. High commodity prices, particularly for all major crops, contributed to the increase. Significant gains in value of exports were reported for wheat, canola seed, barley and oats. In contrast to crops, exports of live cattle and beef declined in 2011. Reduced supply of cattle due to decreasing herd size contributed to the decline.


Locally owned businesses can help communities thrive — and survive climate change


Cities where small, locally owned businesses account for a relatively large share of the economy have stronger social networks, more engaged citizens, and better success solving problems, according to several recently published studies.

And in the face of climate change, those are just the sort of traits that communities most need if they are to survive massive storms, adapt to changing conditions, find new ways of living more lightly on the planet, and, most important, nurture a vigorous citizenship that can drive major changes in policy.

Informal Learning – A 7 Point Action Plan


by MOHIT GARG on APRIL 15, 2013 · 4 COMMENTS

Research says informal learning is most effective. Can we actually design informal learning and have strategies and structures around it, say for new hire orientation ?


Most experts would agree that a great majority (upwards of 70 percent) of workplace learning is informal. But, designing a formal strategy for informal learning is always a challenge, because of the very nature of informal learning which is serendipitous and unstructured. So let me share my learning and strategies, from the design and implementation of social learning programs for thousands of users and numerous customer contexts. In this blog, though we use the context of new hire orientation, the concepts are applicable to a wider range of learning situations.

The Great Pinterestification: How Pinterest’s Design Legacy Might Trump the Company Itself | PandoDaily

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery the founders of Pinterest must be blushing their asses off.

Okay, that’s a mixed metaphor but my point is that a year or so into Pinterest’s relentless adoption spike the number of upstarts that have copied its cutesy tiled bottomless image scroll is astounding.
