Xi JinPing: You get what you give

Filed under: Economy, Government, news, Politics — bananachinese @ 10:50 pm

How to disagree with the chief, la?

2017年1月17日,中国国家主席习近平出席达沃斯世界经济论坛并发表主旨演讲。在反全球化思潮高涨、世界经济持续低迷的关键当口,这个演讲为推动经济全球化更好地发展,发出了铿锵有力的中国声音;为推动世界经济更快地复苏,开出了综合施策的中国药方。

在世界经济快速发展的时期,经济全球化被视为阿里巴巴的山洞,蕴藏了无尽的财富。在世界经济低迷徘徊的时期,经济全球化又被当成潘多拉的盒子,成了万恶之源。应该承认,经济全球化是一柄双刃剑,在推动全球贸易投资充分发展、全球供应链快速形成、全球技术进步高速推进的同时,也对一些国家的特定群体形成了冲击,一定程度上加剧了收入差距的扩大。国际金融危机爆发之后,经济全球化带来的问题更加放大突出,民粹主义、保护主义、反全球化思潮愈演愈烈,终于在刚刚过去的2016年引爆了英国“脱欧”等一系列冲击性事件。

那么,世界问题的根源是经济全球化吗?习近平在演讲中给出了坚定的判断——把困扰世界的问题简单归咎于经济全球化,既不符合事实,也无助于问题解决。

比如,中东北非难民问题、国际金融危机爆发等问题都不是经济全球化造成的,而是源自战乱、冲突和地区动荡以及金融监管严重缺失下的资本过度逐利。“甘瓜抱苦蒂,美枣生荆棘”,诚然,我们不应过度赞誉经济全球化,但也不应过度诋毁经济全球化,将其一棍子打死。

经济全球化是先进生产力和生产方式的发展方向,是经济深刻变革的进程。如同几百年前,工业革命中传统手工作坊生产方式被机器工厂生产方式取代,造成了传统手工业者与工厂工人间的矛盾一样,今天的经济全球化也带来了新的矛盾和问题。但今天世界上有几个人愿意将生活水平降低到工业革命之前的状况呢?受限于现有制度的不完善,经济全球化在增大蛋糕的同时可能使部分群体利益受损。但这里的问题不是经济全球化本身。回避问题的鸵鸟态度并不可取,因噎废食更不可取,勇于担当的领导者应当直面问题、顺势而为,引导好经济全球化走向,让经济全球化的成果更好地惠及每个国家和每个民族。

找准了病根,才好对症下药。习近平指出,世界经济长期低迷的根源在于,全球增长动能不足、全球经济治理滞后、全球发展失衡。针对这些问题,习近平指出,应该坚持创新驱动,坚持协同联动,坚持与时俱进,坚持公平包容,打造富有活力的增长模式、开放共赢的合作模式、公正合理的治理模式、平衡普惠的发展模式。这是一剂综合施策的中国药方,这是一套旗帜鲜明的中国主张。

中国是经济全球化的受益者,也是贡献者。世界为中国提供了机遇,但中国改革开放38年取得的成绩更是中国人民任劳任怨、流血流汗、一点一滴干出来的。中国也为世界作出了相应的贡献,对外援助、培训交流,体现了中国的大国担当。进口商品服务、吸引外资、对外投资、出境旅游,展现了中国为世界带来的机遇。习近平表示,中国张开双臂,欢迎各国人民搭乘中国发展的“快车”“便车”。

坚持改革开放,推进“一带一路”国际合作,中国将继续以大国担当的姿态引领经济全球化。

Nothing has changed for Malaysia, or has it?

Being an old hand at this thingy that everyday Malaysians would gripe about with zestful anger, I most profess to be very sympathetic to their emotions.

It is a terribly, terribly, terribly sad affair isn’t it, that our politicians are not as clean nor as upright as we common people.

What’s going on with the MO1, 1MDB alphabetical soup concoction that has got big brother USA’s Attorney General worked up an investigation? Tun Dr Mahathir and Najib Abdul Razak and their minions going at each other?

The poor UMNO kampung folks can’t understand all these international business intrigue and machinations. Tak paham langsung perihal inilah, the poor makciks and pakciks….

Welcome to Vision 2020, Malaysians…. Miss this ride, you’ll have to wait forever for the next.

BN: To rebuild, to regain or to fall into some blackhole that is the question

Filed under: Citizenry, Malaysia, Media, Politics, Repair — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 7:15 pm

After BN’s big loss of face outcome from Malaysia’s 13th General Election, Samy Vellu declared sagely recently that it is time for BN to regain people’s trust.

Hmmm… a bit late there (somebody beat the MIC legend to it in 2010).

Makes one wonder why BN still keep them UMNO cybertroopers who helped Najib Razak to lose face big time (especially in Selangor) by repelling voters below 50s.

Listen up UMNO, MCA, MIC – you better find yourselves some quality social media engagers if you want to stay on to give a good fight in GE14. Otherwise it will be a boring GE for your fading members and our pelancong politik.

Some may ask what about Khairy Jamaludin‘s cyber team? Pooh, pooh, I say. In Twitter, FB, blogs, frankly, the MCA writer of the original rebuilding trust article seems to possess more politically solid content than his army’s.

其实是这些家伙在搞鬼

李素桦律师:“也许马华与民政党的领袖就是要迫使华社看到这样的局面而感到自责与担忧,可是,让他们吃惊的是,大部分受访的华人对这两个政党的成员人不入阁都抱无所谓的态度”。李律师与普罗大众因们在党内部直接参与的关系故以为不入阁是恐吓华社,其实不入阁是对党内元老及社团老大说的,马华与民政做不做部长对普罗大众没直接影响,但对这些元老及社团老大的生意却大有影响。而这些元老,社团老大及区会领袖常常会把某区故意弄输以换取更大的利益,因为黑区没有中央的国州议员所以这些元老,社团老大,丹斯里,拿督及区会领袖的权利最大,权力加上金钱咋事都好办,他们最好他们的堡垒区永远都是反对党赢,所以老蔡深知游戏规则坚持不入阁,看你们这些元老,社团老大,丹斯里,拿督及区会领袖还玩这套花样吗?所以火箭赢了你别以为火炬是神,其实是这些家伙在搞鬼

MCA party election 2013

Filed under: Malaysia, Politics, Scandal — Tags: , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 6:41 pm

The going was terrible tough for BN’s hapless candidates from MCA in the recent GE13. And now MCA has to suffer the indignity of having a wet nurse to take care of its transport ministerial post while a ‘new’ coterie of MCA leadership gets itself sorted out in their party election.

For now, it is very interesting to discover that some MCA candidates especially in the Selangor kill zone can still increase their fan base by more than 2,000 votes (all together now…. OOOOOH)

Rawang added 2,842 new fans
Kajang added 2,795 new fans
Balakong added 3,044 new fans
Subang Jaya added 2,689 new fans

I gotta feeling that MCA’s party election’s gonna be fun, fun, fun…

社社团的棋子

Filed under: Citizenry, Government, Malaysia, Media, Politics, Scandal — Tags: , , , , — bananachinese @ 6:08 pm

马华与火箭只不过是华社社团的棋子,华人社团从团体中栽培出人员送入马华与火箭的竞技场靠着社团支持力出战大选,所以假如有任何笨蛋国州议员请不要责怪马华与火箭应该怪的是我们华社社团,我们华社社团里所谓的“话事人”!他们当然不希望要个翁诗杰,胡逸山,蔡细历这些跟你讲procedure的领袖,他们最好找个江湖老大但是要听他们“进数三分清”的人去做总会长然后做国州议员,然后利用这些公会的名义谋取他们私人公司的利益,他们才不管你国家和公会的利益反正就是“社团的就是我的,我的就是我的”罗国本的爷爷不是罗氏公会的主席(罗老走后罗国本就人走茶凉)廖中莱的岳丈不是李氏公会的话事人这些菜包有何能力上位?郭鹤年要不是靠着他弟弟在马共的地位这些人真正的能力是叉烧包,讲难听点他们只不过是个团体的代理人,华社不能将任何的事情都指责马华!

GE13 Malaysia – Don’t sulk just go independent

Malaysians were entertained with some comic relief from those who were not picked by their BN or Pakatan Rakyat political parties as calon for GE13.

Some Malaysians were turned off by these dropped aspirants who brought their little coterie of friends to protest against their parties’ choice.

“Serdang MCA division is up in arms over what it says is the plan of the BN headquarters to field a candidate for the Serdang parliamentary seat. Chinese dailies have speculated that Liew Yuen Keong’s camp is in conflict with party members loyal to former Serdang MCA division chief Yap Pian Hon.”

Hmmmm…. what happened to the declarations such as “I’m loyal to my XYZ party”, “I am doing servicing because I sincerely care”. You lot just disclosed to the whole world that all this time you all were really not doing whatever community work for the sake of the community’s betterment.

Eh, kurang asam… all these time taking free rides using party machinery to push for their personal advantage.

If these people think they are worthy of being elected, these people should just resign from their respective political party, fork out own money to fund their own candidacy as independents.

Don’t la play the sulking baddie and sabotage your own parties’ operations centres… Boleh?

“The division had threatened to boycott the election campaign if it was resolved that Wangsa Maju Barisan Nasional chairman Datuk Mohd Shafei Abdullah were to replace division chief Datuk Yew Teong Look.”

Latest I heard some Subang Jaya friends said that Ong Chong Swen is also going to show her displeasure over being dropped as calon for N31 Subang Jaya. In what way, I wonder. I hope this ex-teacher will not show a bad example to mothers. Shame if this Wanita MCA central committee member behave so.

Selfish and hungry for personal fame, I wonder if their own party members will care to vote for them in coming party elections after the GE.

Ong Tee Keat n Ong Chong Swen

MCA’s Ong Tee Keat and Wanita MCA’s Ong Chong Swen

While we are on this topic, will this MCA man Ong Tee Keat be standing as an independent in Pandan constituency?

MCMC are you awake?

Filed under: Government, Malaysia, Media, news, Politics — Tags: , , , , — bananachinese @ 5:01 pm

Dear MCMC,

Instead of thinking to regulate the social media over the coming Malaysia General Elections, I really think you should just do your real job properly and follow the lead from the US.

Sincerely,
BC

Government Takes Legal Action Over Phone Spam

WASHINGTON — The Federal Trade Commission said on Thursday that it had recently filed eight lawsuits in federal courts around the country against companies it accused of ordering or engineering the sending of hundreds of millions of spam text messages to mobile phone users.

In the eight federal civil cases filed across the country in recent days, the F.T.C. named 29 defendants, including 18 individuals, most of whom worked for companies that were hired to send the text messages. One complaint was filed against the operators of one of the Web sites to which consumers were directed by the messages.

About the rape in India

Filed under: Citizenry, Forum, Government, Life, Politics — Tags: , , , , , — bananachinese @ 1:52 pm

Rama Sita

I read an interesting article on The New York Times Op-Ed “The Unspeakable Truth About Rape In India” and found an interesting comment from a reader about India.

Read and tell me about your reaction to below commentator.

Comment from: Cleanup from U.S.

“Crime like rapes etc are the result of lawlessness and political corruption in India. It is clear now, protests marches do not work as they are easily crushed the same way India’s Anti corruption movement was crushed.

The main curse of India is this- the country has been ruled by old, uneducated, inefficient, corrupt politicians who consider themselves lords and masters since the British left.

The opposition is the same.

The Prime Minister is educated but is unable to think outside the box.

Every project, every deal allows the politicians to collect huge cuts and the citizens end up with lousy deals, crumbling roads and infrastructure. Scam after scams are revealed only to be hushed up. Giving and taking kickbacks have been perfected to an art form and no one gets caught.

The politicians , public servants and their relatives are some of the richest in the world. It’s time the world comes to know the truth and hopefully these politicians would feel some shame for what is happening to this land of a billion plus people.

India needs massive doses of new blood,-educated modern thinking to be injected into the government. Indians must encourage educated result oriented, people from the private sector to join politics. If not this cancer of corruption, lawlessness will destroy this country. India is now one of the the largest kleptocracies in the world.”
