Western world: Please Stop Hating White People

pensive grandmother with granddaughter having interesting conversation while cooking together in light modern kitchen

For the past decades, there has been an increase in propaganda that is racist and, historically, naïve and patronising of different peoples from different cultural groups.

As people, we are not just black, European peoples, Southeast Asian peoples or even others.

There is too much ignorance in the world, and people are making a profit of others ignorant and lack of knowing there’s no such thing as a black person, European person or Southeast Asian person.

People are French, Chinese, Polish, Pakistani or Japanese, and other national identities.

I will not call a Japanese person Chinese, and nor should we call a Chinese person Japanese; there are two separate cultures and identities.

It is wrong for people to be understood purely by their skin colour, which doesn’t even make sense if you think of Hispanic people being counted as white, depending on which continent you are on.

Being English, when I think of Spanish, I think of Spain and the Spanish Armada invasions of my country in 1588.When people in North America think of Hispanics, they immediately think of Mexico or South America.

As humans, we use stereotypes to understand a highly complicated and sophisticated world, especially with social media and the age of information we live in.

We must use stereotypes and limited information to understand our world.

That is why it is wrong to place any ethnic group as the oppressor or the oppressed, and it is also wrong to believe that somebody with black skin or dark skin is an angel or that people in Japan are mystics.

Humanity has been terrible to its fellow man throughout its long and bloody history.

For example, the rape of Nanking, which happened between 1937 to 1938, where the Japanese butchered an estimated 150,000 male “war prisoners,” massacred an additional 50,000 male civilians, and raped at least 20,000 women and girls of all ages, many of whom were mutilated or killed in the process.

The Noble Savage

For people living predominantly in the Western world who have been influenced by Western philosophy and thinkers like Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who put forward the idea of the Noble Savage, and people who lived in a hunter-gatherer environment are noble.

Rousseau also put forward the idea that people who have industrialised and developed civilisation have, in many ways, fallen from nobility and have descended into sin and the pursuit of power.

This unfortunate viewpoint that continues to be promoted to the present day is incredibly harmful because it views humanity in the wild in its natural hunter-gatherer environment as a peaceful and benign existence.

Unfortunately, this complete and utter nonsense is helpful, and it’s incredibly racist and even dangerous to view humanity and hunter-gatherers in that way.

It patronises the few remaining hunter-gatherers in Africa, South America, and Russia.

It gives people in the developed world a false sense that they are living in sin and can flagellate themselves publicly by highlighting their sins caused by progress.

Here is the Wikipedia definition of the Noble Savage: ‘In Western anthropology, philosophy, and literature, the noble savage is a stock character uncorrupted by civilisation. As such, the noble savage symbolises the innate goodness and moral superiority of a primitive people living in harmony with Nature.’

Real-world Problems

For people reading this who are from the global North or are from societies that have re-industrialised and modernised over the last 50 years, particularly places like Singapore, China and Japan.

Notably, people living in Western Europe and the North American continent have experienced a long piece and unprecedented prosperity never experienced in human history since 1945.

Though the story is not universal, for example, Japan they have struggled in the post-war period.

For the Chinese, it wasn’t until the death of Mao in 1976 and Deng Xiaoping coming to power in 1978 that they experienced a massive change in fortune.

What is incredibly upsetting and represents how prosperous our societies are is the self-flagellation of people from affluent backgrounds from university education trying out past oppressions that should be highlighted intelligently.

But it must be understood that if we start going after past aggressions and wrongs caused by other nations, ethnic groups and societies, humanity will never stop slitting its own throat.

Nobody alive in North America was a slave of plantation owners from the mid-19th century, and there were no people to punish for the Arab slave trade that stole.

According to the work of some historians, the Arab slave trade has affected more than 17 million people. More than nine million African captives were deported in the Saharan region alone, and two million died on the roads.

There are also the Barbary pirates. Barbary corsairs, or Ottoman corsairs, were mainly Muslim pirates and privateers who operated from the Barbary States.

This area was known in Europe as the Barbary Coast, in reference to the Berbers. Their attacks primarily aimed to capture slaves for the Barbary slave trade.

According to Robert Davis, between 1 million and 1.2 million Europeans were captured by Barbary pirates and sold as slaves in North Africa and The Ottoman Empire between the 16th and 19th centuries.

As for the Atlantic slave trade, it is estimated throughout the Atlantic Slave Trade, from approximately 1526 to 1867, some 12.5 million captured men, women, and children were put on ships in Africa, and 10.7 million arrived in the Americas.

We are to understand past grievances over slavery, and there needs to be an understanding of why it happened and why it should never happen again and that other cultures and nations, much more so than Europeans, should look at their slaving past.

This doesn’t mean that Europeans and their descendants should not look at their past and sins, only that the case for reconciliation and the growth of understanding is not unique to Europeans.

John Hawkins, one of the first English merchants to go to Africa and the Americas and later leader of the Elizabethan Navy in the 16th century, acquired dislike from native Africans with the support drives.

If there is to be an understanding of global slavery, native Africans, Europeans, and Arabs must address their impact on the worldwide slave trade.

On a final note, it is about time that energy is not devoted to past issues but to issues affecting our societies today and meeting the same challenges that our ancestors faced regarding the change of the global economy and the impact of the Silicon Revolution (1971).

As well as modern slavery, according to the latest Global Estimates of Modern Slavery (2022) from Walk Free, the International Labour Organization and the International Organization for Migration, 49.6 million people live in modern slavery — in forced labour and forced marriage. Roughly a quarter of all victims of modern slavery are children.

Chinese Deflation What Does It Mean

person cycling with cart on alley

Chinese Communist Party and China in its current form may very well be truly the doom due to a series of economic, demographic and geopolitical issues facing China all at once within this decade.

This may place the system of government under too much pressure, which could lead to internal disorder.

When writing about China, this could be anything from a cultural revolution, an invasion of Taiwan or the disintegration of China into a warring state repeatedly in the 4,000 to 3,500 years of Chinese history.

The history of China began with the Xia dynasty was the first of many ancient Chinese ruling houses and to present-day communist rule China.

Demographic Issues and Deflation

The Chinese labour market has declined since the late 2000s and is terminal after 2016.

The reason for the decline in the birth rate started with China’s one-child policy, which was created and implemented in 1980 and removed in 2016.China then enacted a new policy called China’s two-child policy, announced in October 2015, was enacted to reverse the nation’s stagnant population growth, ageing population, and shrinking workforce.

The policy targeted some 90 million women of reproductive age who already had a child and now would be allowed to have a second child.

The Communist Party introduced the three-child policy in 2021, failing to increase birth rates. This led to the Chinese government finally removing all restrictions on the number of babies Boston has in 2023.

Why China is failing to increase its population due to 3 main reasons, the first being China’s internal migration, with the number of migrants, most of them rural-to-urban migrants, rising from 6.57 million in 1982 to 221.43 million in 2010.With an annual increase rate of around 10% from 2005 to 2010.

What China went through in the 1980s until the 2000s was its economy moving away from the agricultural economy into an industrial economy which meant the old rural population moved from working on the farms and in the rural economy and instead living in apartment blocks in cities.

In practical terms, this means that people who live in cities have fewer children because children become a short-term economic liability compared to working on the farm, where the child becomes free labour.

This is why people, after industrialisation, start to have a slow population decline for the Chinese; they are experiencing seven generations of industrial development in less than one generation.

With that comes seven generation population decline within one generation.

The decline in population means China won’t have the population to maintain a manufacturing economy.

This will increase the cost of manufacturing in China, which will raise the overall expense of manufacturing goods in China and will spread the cost to consumers.

That’s why the United States has moved to Mexico, which has a younger population that can manufacture consumer goods; the American public has become accustomed to cheap goods from manufacturing.

China Elder Laws

The Chinese Communist Party In July 2013, the National People’s Congress passed an unprecedented and controversial law: the Protection of the Rights and Interests of Elderly People (also known as the Filial Piety Law).

The law mandates that adult children provide culturally expected support to their parents 60 years or older.

China’s new “Elderly Rights Law” deals with the growing problem of lonely elderly people by ordering adult children to visit their ageing parents.

The law says adults should care about their parent’s “spiritual needs” and “never neglect or snub elderly people”.

What this law will mean for young couples hoping to have children’s chance of carrying that task out becomes far more unlikely with caring after their elderly parent and then their partner’s parent, which may mean a maximum of four elderly people to look after within their home.

With the duties and responsibilities, the chances of them having children become increasingly unlikely due to old people becoming more ill and suffering from ailments requiring more consistent care.

You couples may very well become resentful of caring responsibilities in regards to their parent and in-laws, which could put them off the idea of raising children to subjugate them to doing the same for them when they get older.

Furthermore, if you are wiping four asses of older people, it may very well put couples of wiping the arses of their babies and toddlers.

This isn’t even considering the travel costs of visiting parents or their medical bills, which will only increase with time.

With these added responsibilities, couples’ chances of having children become increasingly more remote.

Deflation and The Economy

That’s right; we’re talking about deflation with consumption plummeting, there are ongoing trade wars, an oversupply of goods and undersupply of demand in both domestic and foreign markets, and that’s not even the whole picture.

We saw deflation take over Japan in the 90s, and it took them nearly 25 years to pull themselves out of it.

The Japanese situation was leaps and bounds better than China’s current situation because when Japan had deflation and had to pay off its debt due to reindustrialisation after World War II in 1945, Japan managed to get rich before it suffered population decline and old age.

This means, in practical terms, that Japan is wealthy enough to pay for its elderly and has outsourced manufacturing worldwide, so it does not have to rely on its increasingly elderly population.

In contrast, China has failed to leap from an industrial economy into a consumer economy before its population gets too old, and due to this, we could be looking at the beginning of the end of China in its current form.

China suffered many wars and was divided several times during its long and bloody history. We may very well be seeing China going through hard times again.

Chinese Demographic Data: Population Collapse

tourists at forbidden temple

Today will be looking at some new data from Peter Zeihan on Geopolitics, where he has broken down the latest demographic data from the Chinese space.

This new information that has just been released is even worse than the prediction of the current Chinese population levels, which are expected to be around 800 million and not the official statistics of approximately 1.4 billion.

China has drastically miscounted the number of 5 to 10-year-olds born in the past decades.

Without a new population to replace the ageing population, there can be no retirement, new factory workers or other industries.

The world will experience this to various degrees apart from USA, Argentina and France due to having healthier democracies.

Modern capitalism doesn’t work without there being enough workers to work, enough people that have high enough wages to invest money in the economy and the stock market.

Finally, the elderly need to be smaller to provide for themselves adequately.

The world’s population, particularly in China, looks like an inverted pyramid that will collapse and, with it, the global economy.

With this new information being released, it will allow us to make some much-needed updates to an already bleak assessment…and spoiler alert, it’s going to get a lot worse.

The first graph shows us the demographic picture before this new data was released.

You’ll notice China already has an incredibly fast-ageing population.

The number of people entering the workforce can’t keep up with retirees, so even when using the old data, labour costs increased faster than in any country in history.

By 2035, an estimated 400 million people in China will be age 60 and over, representing 30% of the population, according to the government’s projections.

And the ratio of old to young is expected to snowball more unbalanced after deaths outnumbered births last year for the first time since 1961. Those numbers may very well be very much higher than the current data.

The second graph shows us what the new data are saying.

The number of children under age five has collapsed, leaving China with nearly half the amount of five-year-olds as fifteen-year-olds. This happened well before COVID drove down birth rates and increased death rates. Even though this is the ‘official’ Chinese data, it’s likely overly optimistic.

So that brings us to our internal extrapolation of the data as seen in graph three.

Again, this is our interpretation, but it gives you a better look at the Chinese predicament.

Leaks out of China suggest the yellow bars don’t even exist; this means China isn’t a country in demographic decay…it’s country in the advanced stages of demographic collapse.

China is entering its final decade of operating as a modern industrialised nation. For any foreign business still in China, those sunk costs on factories can only keep you there for so long…and it will only worsen from here on out.

The collapsing populations in China, South Korea and Japan are so fascinating and horrific.

These nations don’t have a future; at least in this century, we will see in East Asia in the far east what will be happening to the West in around 20 to 30 years.

We are getting a front-row seat to what happens when the young vastly outnumber the old, and keep in mind that women, on average, only have babies up until age 35. After 35, there is geriatric pregnancy.

Why China is Suffering Several Debilitating Problems

white concrete houses

Why is China suffering several debilitating problems due to the lack of an effective vaccine? According to CanSino, and the last from Gao’s team in partnership with Anhui Zhifei Longcom, the effectiveness of the vaccines range from just over 50% to 79%, based on what the companies have said.

This is compared to Pfizer-BioNTech, which has an effectiveness of around 95%. However, the actual effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine is up for debate. Peter Zeihan, a geopolitical writer, consultant, and author, stated that the “Chinese vaccine does not work”.

The problem with getting information from China is that it is a centralised and dictatorial state, meaning getting precise information is hard to gather. The state regularly gives false reporting; for example, the Chinese government accidentally discounted 100 million Chinese citizens.

Xi Jinping, leader of China

According to Peter Zeihan, China is a fascist regime which derives its legitimacy from economic success. Still, the economy is failing due to internal structural problems with the one-child policy that started in 1979, which led to the fall of the Chinese labour market.

The Chinese population is not at a sustainable level of 2.1 to replace previous generations; it is estimated that by the end of the 21st century, the Chinese population will be around 500 600 million from its high of 1.2 billion.

Why is this relevant for Chinese Herd immunity and the survival of the Communist regime? The answer is that Xi Jinping has accumulated more power into one individual than the old Roman emperors like Nero and previous Chinese regimes such as Chairman Mao Zedong.

President Jinping has boxed himself into a corner where he cannot admit the failure of the Chinese vaccine, which is not helped that communists cannot ask places like the United States or other locations to use their vaccines, such as Pfizer.

This is due to the Communist parties internal propaganda criticising the effectiveness of Western-developed scenes as well as the misinformation campaign, which means politically, the Communist regime and not ask for or purchase help.

Lack of democracy

The Chinese political system predominantly comes historically in two forms an overcentralised central government that can lead to tyranny where the centre is dominated by a bureaucracy and yes-men, which leads to the collapse of the political system.

Peter Zeihan argues that in China, all political decisions and difficult decisions on how to run the government are all being run through Xi Jinping, who does not have the technical skills or the ability to work with others to run the kind of dictatorship the Chinese government needs to succeed.

Mr Zeihan compares with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud who does not have an ego that gets in the way of government and is a greater grass of communication and people skills impaired Xi Jinping.

Currently, China is not just a one-party system but a political system where all decision-making is run by its president. The provinces are unwilling to adapt to different crises and its political system than being purged of alternatives by Xi Jinping.

With the Chinese system in a dictatorship, there are no democratic means to bring about change across all problems that are the fault of the Chinese Communist Party.

It is different from the United States, where there are elections for governors and senators or the national and state level, as well as the choice of the president of the United States of America.

The same goes for other democratically run nations; there is an opportunity to change the leadership and policies of previous governments in China; they don’t have that option preventing China from dealing with the Covid 19 crisis.

Compounded Problems with China

China is an ageing population and reached its peak production capabilities at the lower-end supply chain of products and services, predominantly low inside manufacturing back during the early 2000s CE.

The demographic problem in China is also severe: an ageing population, a lack of young people who moved to cities to have families and a higher rate of diabetes than in the United States of America.

Again, this is related to the lack of herd immunity because of the deep structural problems that have been growing in China since 1979 and have been addressed by the Chinese government as well as other governments, such as Russia, that have demographics that are as bad as the Chinese, Japanese and the Germans.

China and the Economy

Peter Zeihan describes the global economy since industrialisation in the 19th and 20th centuries as moving from pyramid-style demographics towards a more chimney shape.

What this means is that before modern medicine, half of the children typically died before adulthood and what this meant is that as people got older, they would be progressively fewer older people than young people due to dying from war, disease or other methods of death.

In the 20th century, after the Second World War and the end of the Cold War in 1989, nations that did not industrialise began the process of industrialisation. The baby boomer generation was born in 1945 in 1960, humanity and its largest generation.

China, for example, experienced over 300 million births with baby boomers after the Second World War.

The work chain is large enough for the Chinese people to work for low-end manufacturing with the capital supplied by the Global North with wealth from the boomer generations.

The one-child policy and the demographic problems within China are exacerbating and showing the issues in Chinese and other demographics worldwide.

Without enough people aged 20 to 35, there is no workforce to drive manufacturing and consumer goods and services in our modern economies.

With the boomers entering retirement in the 2020s, the environment of cheap capital investment is fading, and there isn’t a replacement generation to run manufacturing in a place like China.

This is linked to a lack of herd immunity because the Chinese problems are all interconnected with Covid-19, internal government, and demographics, all causing problems.

The Guide to Understanding Currency

red and black temple surrounded by trees photo

When investing in currencies, the first step to understanding what a currency it would be necessary to understand the value of money; for this purpose, this article will discuss the history of currency and different governments’ approaches to financing and capital.

To gain an understanding, we will look at the first world currency, called shekel, created 5000 years ago by the Mesopotamians. Reading this may be unclear because it may not seem relevant to understanding money.

This is relevant because to understand investing, money and finance, the first step is to understand what money is. Money was a method of replacing a bartering system, and original money was tied to the value of the grain.

In 1971, America came off the gold standard. It broke with the Bretton Woods agreement, which was an agreement in 1944 where America became the globe’s first global currency and that America would become the guarantee of gold being exchanged for the US dollar.

Again, all this information can be overwhelming and hard to grasp. This is why I shall explain currency and its relation to finance capitalism and government in this article.

The East Asian method of finance and the West

Modern East Asian finance in China, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea and Japan’s practice of using finance as capital to invest in their economy is not guided by the traditional Western understanding of money as a means of investing in projects that give a return on the original investment.

In Japan, money which is capital, is used not for economic purposes but for political purposes for the good and well-being of the state. This method of understanding capitalism comes from Japan from the 7th century CE was the Japanese Emperor had the power to forgive debts.

The Japanese have a long history of using this method to advance the national interest; for example, when America opened up Japan to foreign investment, capital and trade in 1852 with Commodore Perry, this led to the rapid industrialisation of Japan.

The Japanese home islands are resource-scarce, so the only way the Japanese could survive in the mercantilism and Imperial age was to borrow money and invest in Japan’s industrialisation. The Japanese were quite successful in building their hegemony in East Asia.

Before the advent of the 21st century, the two main economic ideology was mercantilism; this is where Imperial centres like France and the United Kingdom traded primarily with their overseas territories inside their Imperial markets.

What this meant for the Japanese was that to survive in this kind of economic order, Japan had no choice but to go into debt and seek resources from its neighbours in Korea, mainland China and other East Asian countries for a united Japan to survive.

This all changed after the Second World War; what the Americans created were economic security and the world’s first truly global trade order.

Free trade, as in the modern understanding, did not exist until 1946, with the Americans becoming the guarantee of a global currency, the US dollar supported by the US gold reserve at Fort Knox and the American’s ability to patrol international shipping lanes for the Western alliance against the Soviet Union.

Much historical context goes into understanding finance, to put it simply in the East Asian context; due to the Japanese conquering most of mainland China and other East Asian states, the Japanese left behind their finance culture.

This meant in real terms because the Americans were the guarantee for global trade; this meant East Asian nations like Japan, Singapore, and Hong Kong could industrialise within 30 years, unlike the British, which took seven generations and the Germans, who took five generations to industrialise.

The accessibility of cheap money meant that nations could industrialise quickly across the path towards industrial relations was started by the British in the 1780s and could be followed at even quicker rates by nations developing today. For example, it took the Chinese 40 years to industrialise. The Chinese success came at a steep price, with its financial credibility in tatters and the nation crammed in seven generations of development within one generation which is a phenomenal achievement.

Unfortunately, no price is too high when it comes to borrowing to meet the Communist Party’s aims of maintaining a united China by keeping idle hands busy this is according to the geopolitical writer and geopolitical analyst Peter Zeihan. 

In 2020 China was 34.9 trillion yuan in debt which is the equivalent of 5.4 trillion American dollars. This comes at around the equivalent of 40% of China’s GDP.

The best guess of the calendar year 2022 is that it is now 385 trillion yuan, equivalent to $58 trillion US dollars. The Chinese have embraced the Chinese philosophy of the economy serving the state’s needs, not the pursuit of true success regarding economic development.

This paragraph makes it clear and confusing why nations in the West and Asia are printing money off the magic money tree. I shall explain in the next section the concept of Keynesian economics and Fiat currency.

Fiat currencies and Keynesian economics

Modern-day currencies are no longer tied to real-world resources; for example, as mentioned above, the British and Americans used the gold standard in the 1930s as a means of exchanging a real-world product that is valuable in tying its worth to a currency.

However, when the United States under Richard Nixon was president in 1971 took the US dollar off the gold standard; he did this for two reasons, the first being that there are over 6 billion pieces of gold in the world and there’s not enough gold supply for a currency to function as a global currency.

The second reason why the United States came off the gold standard first in 1932, president Frederick Roosevelt and the British did the same in 1931 before the Americans were that by coming off the gold standard and taking the worth of money away from a resource, it meant the money supply could increase.

The Keynesian economic theory created by John Maynard Keynes, a liberal economist, was that by increasing the money supply, money could be used to invest and grow the economy.

From the paragraph above, you can see where the East Asian and Western models have met and created an easy supply of capital.

The problem with Fiat currencies is that they have no basis in reality; without a currency being tied to a real value, that currency itself will lose any true legitimacy.

This can be seen when the Chinese government loosened restrictions on financial transfers to establish the yuan as an international currency.

Unfortunately for the Chinese, the Chinese citizens have shuffled more than $1 trillion in assets beyond the reach of the Chinese government.

This event highlights that due to the massive debts the Chinese state has incurred, it has devalued the value of the yuan and the confidence in the Chinese currency.

Cryptocurrencies are a method of exchange without any central authority through a medium transferred through a computer network; the best way to think of crypto as an investment is like an exchange rate from one currency, for example, the US dollar to the Sterling.

Currently, globally there are 20,268 cryptos available some are inactive; this means there is a host of platforms to buy cryptocurrencies, with the best platforms being Coinbase which has over 30 million users, CoinTracking which helps you to manage your crypto portfolios.

The key to buying cryptocurrencies is to research the currencies and platforms the best way to understand the platforms that enable the purchasers of the currencies is to compare them to trading platforms like Robin Hood in terms of functions.

Crypto enables users to transfer cash without the interference of governments; however, with crypto being new and people getting familiar with buying cryptocurrency, the market will be very volatile to speculation, which makes Crypto an excellent opportunity to make money.

The negatives with crypto are that it was created by tech-savvy people, which means it was not marketed correctly; crypto is a new method of currency exchange, but it has no guarantor.

Currencies and governments

Financial assets and currencies need to be tied to a real-world value, unfortunately, depending upon interpretations of global economy economics, according to the historian David Starkey is no longer linked to a “practical economy”.

Economics was developed when there was a genuine scarcity of resources; if no iron ore natural resources were required for industrialisation, a country or region would be unable to industrialise.

The Americans have successfully created since 1946, and the Bretton Woods agreement in 1944 was to create a global, financial and trading system where the old barriers to trade no longer existed.

What this meant was that nations, according to Adam Smith, an economist and philosopher, could begin to specialise in their regions or nations’ special value-added products and services in accordance with their needs.

With the economies of scale becoming global, this brought an end to the economies of scarcity and brought the Western world more than the developed nations in East Asia unprecedented growth and prosperity since the ending of the Second World War and the Cold War in 1945 than 1989.

Unfortunately all this high money supply has devalued the worth of currencies and destroyed any real understanding and value of economics and responsible investing since the financial crisis of 2008 and since United States came off the gold standard the world as a nearly 50 years of cheap money.

What this means is that the prices of assets as increased as the money supply has become more readily available; however, rather than investments in developing the economy, much of this new wealth has been invested in assets like the housing market.

We are experiencing in the United Kingdom and the United States, as well as other Western and Eastern nations, the actions of governments over the previous decades finally coming home to roost. For too long, currencies had not been attached to any true value.

They have been attached to a national economy and, in some cases, the oil price in the case of the US dollar.

However, it would help if you were forewarned that there are many interpretations when understanding currencies. For example, the current currencies globally are officially Fiat currencies with no real attachment to value.

The alternative that could be used to attach currencies to a natural resource would be energy; this would be a great way to ring real value to currency because without energy, a modern economy and society would be unable to function.

Electricity and other forms of energy that power modern industrial society has been artificially devalued due to the efficiency of getting those resources for the economy.

Without the resources that power modern technology, the way the world functions are no longer viable. This is something that can be real value added towards a currency.

Do research

Suppose you are interested in trading in traditional currencies, cryptocurrencies or other investment forms such as infrastructure, technology and real-world products. In that case, it is strongly recommended that you do your research.

There is a massive difference between the actual value of currencies and the real world economy and what is necessary available prices in the global market space; for example, people who are investors do not currently have a grasp of what crypto is. With this being the case, this is an excellent opportunity due to the volatility of investing in crypto in the short term; however, crypto does not seem to have any actual value to what is currency, such as its worth, compared to a resource like gold or energy. 

There are also linkages between the state economy, currencies’ value, and internal stability. For example, during the writing of this article, in October 2022, the United Kingdom has just lost its prime minister Liz Trust which created a lack of confidence and instability within the stock markets and financial markets for investors because the government lost its credibility for financial confidence.

When selecting your options for investments, the key’s research, research and research if you are investing in a country, you will not be just investing in the assets but the stability of the nation as a whole. I am writing this not as an expert but as a generalist. 

I spend my time researching history, politics and the real-world economy because there is a colossal difference between what is real and what is perceived. At the moment, Apple has 95% of its infrastructure in regard to manufacturing in China. 

Due to the Chinese instability in Its financial system, political system, and rivalry with the United States, Apple could be unable to produce new phones for years should it lose its infrastructure base. These kinds of key details can help an investor or somebody conducting research to make well-informed decisions. 

Plenty of resources can be found in blogs, YouTube and through educational books and courses that can help people make well-informed decisions.
