CHANGING ECONOMY

Newsweek front page says.
7 places you must see before going broke.
One has to wonder the subconscious of the content.

For the status of the magazine, it is a statement.
Can it be a warning of things to come?
And how will we deal with it?

New civilization is clear on one thing.
Survival is for the fittest.
Best to prepare is the only way and game to be.

To do that is not easy.
No matter how great you had being.
To let go the way we were is a must.

There will be no new winning formula.
All start anew.
Past sure things must go.

A new circle is in our face.
Fear will be real.
But courage and cool head we must.

Smart ones are making move.
Hilary is fading out.
She is contemplating her next step.

There is nothing at present post to keep her on top.
She needs space and time to get ready.
Rest of Obama group can be heading down.

IMF head, timely or not so timely, simply point out.
US economy is at risk.
Job is the focus and luck not on Obama side.

Europe is no better.
Situations are failing with borders quietly tightening.
Italy and Spain can be worse off than Greek.

Canada was US and NATO traditionally.
But it has late to warm up to China boom.
Yes, resources sell.

But China has own situation now.
Political development has off-set the economical priority.
To deal with corruption can fatally undermine the economy.

There are plenty domestic situations too.
Transition of power is on hand.
Direction will be a first decision.

All situations concerned.
It is truly a global village with butterfly effect.
Everything is inter-connected.

Greater Van prematurely has sales all over.
Major locations surprisingly have visible vacancies.
Many bus stop benches are looking for advertising too.

Each quoted is an indicator of the state of local economy.
And we then must wisely prepare for the worst.
Even our BC government “too broke for raises” makes a perfect example.

But on the same token, old saying is true.
The worst of time can be the best of time.
That we must be super evolving to be creative and explosive.

Gone with the wind is to the old.
Think outside the box is the key.
You can be the one to make the game new and exciting.

But at same time, beware of all down sides.
For new winners there must be lot losers.
They can be the new trouble makers.

Risk will be real.
But rewards will be great.
The new circle is new order in town.

ECONOMY TAIPEI

China individual visitors start coming on June 28.
That will be 400,000 local jobs opportunities.
And tourism income will be 550 billions.

They have 15 days staying limitation with 500 a day.
Local medical group is crying for longer staying.
A month will be perfect for business in complete physical check-up.

China credit card is hooking up fast.
3,000 ATM are operational.
Cash on hand will be good for local small business.

And this will be “year one” for property buying.
China new riches worry how to keep the wealth long term.
Majority got theirs by not so legal situations.

That leaves dark cloud in their minds.
Many naturally seek oversea investment or even immigration.
Frankly speaking, money laundry is in high demand.

Canada and USA are the top destination at the moment.
Press coverage said plenty.
It is a circle in many countries before including Taipei.

From a political view, Taipei can play a better role here.
The legal system here is just as safe as any developed countries.
And it keeps wealth in Chinese territory.

And it is the best to serve as erasing some moral considerations.
It is up to the government on both sides to see that.
Process can be interesting.

Canada fund makes perfect example here.
Manual Life is having two set-ups ready.
One is to raise US $350 millions and other NT$ 10 billion.

Taipei has to face the water and food crisis the world will face soon.
And 3 days weekend can be another challenge.
Innovative breakthrough will benefit the economy greatly.

Car-share service “Zipcar” poised for IPO.
Vancouver is presenting its own “move smartly”.
That is “CAR2GO” by using smart car by Benz.

Taipei can look into India’s Tata NANO.
The unit is only US $2,900 each.
With local driver, it is perfect for China individual travelers.

India will love this presentation.
That is playing great into future China market.
Competition will bring out the best in both.

ZARA is taking residence in Taipei 101.
Aiming is China tourists.
Next will be “made in China” labors go chic.

NBA may face lock-out.
But LeBron will be in Taipei August 11 and 12.
That is money talking.

ECONOMIC VANCOUVER

BC this year sold 227 houses priced at Can $2 millions or up.
That is a 184% increase between January and March.
It is the best in Canada.

Kelowna is up 700% in top.
Vancouver sold one in $10.06 millions.
And another at $29.9 millions is in waiting.

It is obvious China luxury house buyers driving up the price.
Middle East buyers come in second.
They are real.

Chinese press covered with front page headlines.
None was mentioned in Van Sun or Province.
Community interest differs clear.

ADS meeting were attended by 120 people yesterday.
Carol James was the center of attention.
It was all about Chinese tourist.

The main concern is.
Is BC ready?
Are we looking for quality or quantity?

The tourist side seems cold.
Only 40 to 50 travel agencies will be authorized.
Minority few in control can’t cheer up the mass.

HST is in the way to cost.
Travel agents pointed out Europe relatively cheaper.
Why bother to come if no incentive.

ECONOMIC MARCH MADNESS TAIPEI

Three major international investment houses are planning forums in Taipei.
M L is head starting on 3/16-17.
Sach, as mentioned before, will be on 3/22.   
And Swiss Credit will be on 3/22-26.

They all are looking at China Rising.
Taipei is the shortest road.
And it is with the most benefit.
No one wants to miss the ship.

Taiwan eyes waste recycling market in China.
Domestic market is everyone’s target.
China singles out 6 major consumer areas.
Taiwan is on all priority lists.

There are three directions to watch.
Rail, as mentioned previously, is the hottest at the moment.
All South East Asia will be connected.
That includes Vietnam, Burma, Cambodia and into Thailand and Singapore.

Iran, India and Pakistan are all in waiting.
They can’t afford to be left out.
And there is ocean ambition.
Namely that is South Sea, Japan Sea and even North Pole.

Finally there is hard cash advantage.
It is backed by 45% of citizens’ saving of income and foreign reserve.
After Africa, now the West is serious concern cash aid to Eastern Europe.
The concern is turning to alarm to few. 

DIDN’T KNOW THAT

We all know.
Shanghai traditionally carries 50% of China’s economy.
But not many realize.
China has one city having 50% of nation’s cash floating through daily.
No, it is not Beijing.
It is Shenzhen.

DEFICIT

US are showing the world.
They will be in deficit at US $1.35 billion in 2010.
No wonder the federal debt held by public may reach US $15 billion in decade.
Can that be a step close to bankruptcy?

休閒國際,願景2010

國際金融海嘯,幾乎所有的國家經濟體都打回原形,之後新興市場
聲勢大起,從巴西,中國,印度,印尼,馬來西亞,墨西哥到臺灣,都是在
股市上表現引人注目,唯一的中國經濟的9%成長,更是一支獨秀,無
形中,多少年來,大家口中的亞太世紀,就那麼一下成為事實,多少人
心中,真的沒有準備好.

大好的亞洲世紀,自然是良機無限,但危機也不少,居安思危,有心人
真該以不求顯己的方式多建言,同時更要無私的多做事.

國際當前最引人注目的是CHNIA RISING,同時中國回應自省的是,
和平的崛起-演變-發展,華夏思維中王道大同世界,正是最好的推動
目標及方向.

美國故總統LONDON JOHNSON就大力推動過GREAT SOCIRTY,
其實那就是美版的孔老夫子的大同世界.

老有所養,幼有所育,民有所居,這正是現代中國以時代創新來落實老
祖宗說法的時候.

現實中,中國必須扮演擴大內需的角色來補足消失中的超級美國消費
市場,今後只有最好的創新平價產品,才能在中國市場有競爭力,中國的
中央政府經濟及金融操作,正是拉上提高中國一般人民生活品質的
最大著力點.

計劃中的農村的城鎮現代化及四縱四橫的高鐵時代,必須配合休閒的
現代人文考量,更又要如何感性的實現,那就是大同世界的軟性現代設
計,那才是今日中華兒女要的真正最高榮譽感.

能做到城鎮化的農村,必然會是國際休閒人士最喜歡的接觸中國人文
的地方,同時強化了人性和便利的高鐵時代,更會是現代中國創意的絕
大發揮空間,如果能夠具備物性的精美,又再創現代中國國際品味,更能
意念行上從容的全面平民化,那就是未來的全民之褔.

中國是有六億人的中產實力,每年想進城的是1500萬青年,有三億人的
年薪達到美金9,000元,因此專家看好,在2015年,中產的人數將達六億,

現在又是東協加一,那可是一個17億人的消費市場,有了全球三分之一的
人口,生產總值六兆美元,更重要的是,人民幣將是惟一流通貨幣.

指標性的中國,必須要放開全民的消費實力,讓人民安心,就看健保和居者
有其屋的落實了,人民沒有了後顧之憂,休閒才能大行其道,中國安定了,領
導流行,絕對有助全球經濟回春,理想的大同世界幾乎說可以指日可期,上
海的世博會就將是最好的起點.

GOVERNMENT DEBT

No one is perfect.
And all will make mistake.
But there is a limit.
Stupid one is not tolerable.
When there is debt.
One must spend beyond the limit.

Recession creates fear in all.
Government needs to establish calm in trust.
Public insecurity needs to be deal with quickly.
Usually cut costs come to mind.
Live within the mean was how Provincial Liberal had succeeded.
But that is not here at the moment.

To spend more is shocking to many.
Government debt becomes answer.
We do have Olympics coming.
That turns out to be a perfect excuse.
That gives them reason to go into debt.
They are spending the future of next generation.
 
They are not telling us how debt will be paid.
Passing the buck is the game.
But what anger us is.
They didn’t see what was coming.
There is no punished.
And future generation has no say what so ever.
Nobel 2009 will be remembered as a special one.
There is change in vision.
It banks on new US Presidency.
Obama makes perfect target
Now the Presidency must carry out the peace mission.
That turns out to be another kind of government debt.

Canada love to brag about the soundness of the economy.
Past success is a curse this time.
They didn’t see the crisis coming.
It took them long enough.
That was to admit the recession.
But they still claim how better off we are.

That mentality is a liability today.
It reflects the people in charge are off balance.
Government debt becomes first option.
We have no idea how far will they go with the debt.
Montreal Olympics is a lively example.
They were tied down for decades.

Unfortunately it is Vancouver’s turn now.
Spending is out of control.
Younger generation will be pinned down for years.
Fat cats pocket the profit and move to next one.
There is no way we can get to them later.
The thought sick me to the stomach.

BOOMING TAIPEI

It is their turn now.
The market has long being under priced.
Real estate now is reaching new high.
Taipei has housing property at NT $3 million per pin.
And that is $700 million for a top house.

展望中國休閒產業

經過了2008的北京奧運,接下來就是2010的上海世博,當今不論是體育性的或是商業
化的,所有最高峰的活動盛會都在中國辦了,當前世界飽受金融危機之苦,只有中國以4
兆人民幣的魄力,加強內造全面的基層建設,當時無人認同的保八的豪語,至今巳經成為
公認事實,連帶以往在自由世界被認為是笑話的”官方說法”,目前己被務實的投資界視為
絕對權威的”內線”指標,因以無形中也確認了中國現在的國際金融再起火車頭地位.

老祖宗說得好,居安思危,在這個亞洲當家世紀的大時代,以王道興邦的中華智慧展望未來,
有務實有遠見的必要來吸收當代各國的優點長處,再次營養過去古漢唐的大融會貫通活力,
再造新世紀時代文明,休閒產業是反映時代的最隹代表,如何表達傳統及現代優勢,更全面
吸收國際各地特色,這就是愛護中國的產官學界有心人士的時代使命.

專業的服務精神是現代先進社會的指標,但傳統中人文的”北平”人情味就是表達的一個
境界,但今天也只能在小說文字中回味,社會主義方式的愛國”激情”淡化了這傳統的”温情”,
比之於當前國際第一流的服務精神標準,差別只在認知甚麼才是服務的範圍和態度,真心
誠意造成交心就是原則,利害關係的考量永遠是短見,晉商的仁義精神值得發揚.

美國如Disney般的休閒產業重點在創意,故事,管理及推廣,這是一個全面用最低成本,厚道
的讓第一流國際人才來華培養固有文化深度,再造新世紀的休閒文化時代,容人的良性亙學
所長就是主體.

中華文化在臺灣不但有連續性,更在美日強烈影響下,產生了相當有發展性潛力的次文化,
如何包容培養更見視野及深度,更重要的是,如何正視臺方當下所產生的眾多負面效應,如
何掌握正面方向,以深度的了解來改進現有缺點,長遠看來才是最省時省錢的前瞻做法,言
不在多,執行力就是開始.
