China’s Naturally Triangular Trade…

Consider another case of triangular trade.

If the United Kingdom had a bit more North Sea oil, it wouldn’t import directly from the Gulf or Russia. But the euro area would. The United Kingdom would sell vacations (and financial services) to the Gulf and Russia, while the euro area paid for its imports of oil by selling manufactures to the United Kingdom and the Gulf/Russia (the oil exporters). I am simplifying a bit, but only a bit.

China’s exports to the United States in October were strong, even though the first big round of tariffs went into place in September. So the front-loading to beat the 10 percent tariff on $200 billion should now be out of the data. However, there is an argument that the impact of front-loading to beat the initial tariff is being masked by front-loading to beat the second round of tariffs, given that Trump has threatened to raise the tariff to 25 percent in January. One thing to watch: does a significant gap emerge between the pace of growth of China's exports to the United States and its exports to the EU. Right now they are growing at a very similar pace, which suggests the current distortion is modest in size

Israel Balancing US-China Relations: Geostrategic Context

China on its end views Israel as a country that can help them spur innovation, research, and development. There is a geopolitical dimension as well: Israel is an important player within China’s overall Middle East policy, where China seeks to maintain good relations with all regional countries. Within this context may lie an effort on the part of China to make inroads with a key U.S. ally to undermine global U.S. alliance and partner networks. Further, Israel can serve as a useful node in the Belt and Road Initiative, China’s vision for linking Eurasia and Africa by land and sea.

Despite shared interests, these relations are associated with challenges, which brings us to the second finding. Chinese construction and operation of key infrastructure projects, including commercial ports and rail adjacent to Israeli bases, as well as investment in Israeli tech companies, raise political and security concerns.

Finally, the relationship with China could cause Israel’s interests to diverge from those of the United States, Israel’s most important strategic partner.

There is no contradiction between empiricism and rationalism, or even the need to reconcile, as Kant did, since they act on two different levels.

It is necessary to distinguish the power that is in the "plane of the act", from the power that is in the "plane of the power" (without entering the third "plane of the power").

In the first case, in the power in the "plane of the act", the causes (the Causality) are easier to detect because there is continuity when being in the same plane, and it is enough with the study, the observation, what we call empiricism , go, and they are given immediate objectivity because they show up in the dialectic of The Story over and over again, while in the second case, in which the power is in the "power plane", the Causes they are a mystery, because there is a relationship and connection of discontinuity between the two planes (not inside the plane of power, in which continuity must be inevitable when mediating between God, or whatever each one wants to call it, "plane of the arrogance "and the world," plane of the act "), and in reality, these causes are seen between the two planes, because they are given away by speculation, by heuristics, by rationalism, which are given a provisional objectivity that comes of the eureka of subjectivity, an exact fantasy, and are made objective while the things of the world, of the plane of the act, square us, because they are in the dialectic of Nature, and there is provisionality (falsification would say Popper), because the sun could not rise tomorrow (as we know Hume said)

In addition, there is not only a history and dialectic of nature, but a Natural history (says Adorno), in which even the laws change, or could change, there are no fixed laws, because the arrogance decides and rules.

Did Jews really own slaves?

Jacob Rader Marcus, a historian and Reform rabbi, wrote in his four-volume history of Americans Jews that over 75 percent of Jewish families in Charleston, South Carolina; Richmond, Virginia; and Savannah, Georgia, owned slaves, and nearly 40 percent of Jewish households across the country did. The Jewish population in these cities was quite small, however, so the total number of slaves they owned represented just a small fraction of the total slave population; Eli Faber, a historian at New York City’s John Jay College reported that in 1790, Charleston’s Jews owned a total of 93 slaves, and that “perhaps six Jewish families” lived in Savannah in 1771.

A number of wealthy Jews were also involved in the slave trade in the Americas, some as shipowners who imported slaves and others as agents who resold them. Alexandre Lindo, a French-born Jew who became a wealthy merchant in Jamaica in the late 18th century, was a major seller of slaves on the island.

What’s the origin of the Jewish domination claim?

The claim of Jewish domination first came to wide attention with the Nation of Islam’s 1991 book, The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, Volume One. (Two other volumes would follow, addressing different aspects of black-Jewish relations.) The heavily footnoted and seemingly scholarly book, which lists no individual author and was self-published by the Nation of Islam, purports to present “irrefutable evidence” that Jews owned slaves “disproportionately more than any other ethnic or religious group in New World history.” Encyclopaedia Judaica and multiple works by Marcus, though it includes no data on non-Jewish slave owners and traders from which to establish whether the Jewish role was in fact disproportionate. It also routinely ignores claims from the Jewish sources it relies on that undermine its thesis. (Marcus, for example, asserts that Jews “were always on the periphery” of the slave trade and that “sales of all Jewish traders lumped together did not equal that of the one Gentile firm dominant in the business” — an observation The Secret Relationship ignores.)

Industry 4.0' ignites change in motor industry - 5 major disruptors to affect SA

"We saw how, almost overnight, the taxi industry was transformed with the introduction of Uber. While not all changes will be as rapid, we need to prepare for the likelihood that these disruptors will become the norm in the not-so-distant future.” He says firstly understanding the possible impacts is important.

"We know that alternative fuels and electric vehicles will affect how vehicles are serviced and repaired.

"Then comes the parts industry. The number of replacement parts in an electric vehicle, for example, is far less than in a petrol or diesel-powered vehicle. Businesses are going to need to be flexible and adaptable or will become obsolete."

Olivier says the RMI is encouraging its associations to become immersed in what is happening internationally in their area of specialisation and to engage with stakeholders both locally and abroad.
