shifting water + water cyphoning – the world’s water-based economy’s flows tracking:
If there’s one thing I noticed about the world in the last seven years has been that when it comes down to it, water currencies make the world go round. Especially, when it comes to peace on earth.
I lived in Los Angeles. It is a city consisting of 20m people (in LA and surrounding cities) where you had to purchase every drop of water to survive.
In NZ, our no.1 business story is probably farming + agriculture’s flows and how water from New Zealand is gathered together from all over the green NZ paddock to create milk powder.
The profits of the waters’ fruit in dairy, is highly sought after in Asian nations now. What do Asian nation’s want? A piece of NZ’s water supply, effectively, now turned to a protein format. So NZ’s water is still the currency being shifted (or cyphoned) from NZ’s landscape for people living afar off. (more…)
TTG, NDA GROUP, AG-SCI & WHAT GREG MUIR’S TEAM COULD DEVELOP NEXT FOR NZ FARMERS BEST INDUSTRY INTERESTS & ENDEAVORS
The agri-tech group finished 16th on the TIN100 survey of companies set up to improve technology and research. TTG splashed $73m for the acquisition.
What’s needed now is for a company like TTG, to develop the same thing with a banking software system invention, that can then track ‘white gold’ (aka dried dairy product with the water then extracted) around the world to see if NZ farmers are achieving the best brand leverage from dairy leaving the farm gate to distribution world wide.

China is not only highly mobile telephony capable (and i.t literate too), its engineers are pretty clever also.
“A genuine strategic air power must possess a strong power projection capability. To have air capability on that level is highly reliant on large aircraft, namely a strategic air freighter and a strategic bomber,” said Wang Yanan, deputy editor in chief at Aerospace Knowledge magazine and a military analyst, in a China Daily report.
China successfully made and flew the Kunpen (the Y-20) jumbo air freighter. Other large air freighters already flying include the Russian-built Ilyushin Il-76, the U.S.-made Boeing C-17 Globemaster III and, largest of them all, the Ukrainian Antonov An-225. The four-engine Yun-20, or Transport-20, is a huge, multi-function airfreighter that can perform various long distance air transport tasks targeting cargo and passengers, the state-run Xinhua News Agency said.”
I.T literate China with super fast internet capability also announced: China’s mobile phone users reach 1.11 billion.
Creative people play every day in productive ways. It’s how they [we] explore, invent the new and dream up the new, so that entrepreneurs can then get things done.
As we have a purpose to be productive, creative play [and an economy is a creative play on a global stage of sorts] becomes increasingly productive with how citizens choose to use leisure time. Creative people use leisure time productively. It is their intellectual down-to-earth DNA.
A focus to build, can lead to a nation of innovative, useful, fun, playful inventors building the efficient infrastructure we need that makes a people sustainably wealthy over time, due to good building designs of all kinds that are both fun and smart.
An economist writes a creative story. They write: When the cat’s away, the mice will play. Right now, New Zealanders are the mice and the financial market is the cat… NZ’s net foreign liabilities are still about 70 per cent of gross domestic product [too high for comfort]. (more…)
NZ NEWS. LIES. COVER UPS. GREED. TRUST ABUSE. ECONOMIC BULLYING, LAND BUY UPS. RACIST INEQUALITY PERSECUTION, TEENS & YOUNG ADULTS DISCRIMINATION & HEALTHY CONFESSIONS AHEAD – 18th JANUARY 2012
News: It was very much a politics driven show. Click on pic to see.
For my own reference – What is remembered of news and news culture, follows…?
Lance Armstrong confesses to drug useage to Oprah yet he still shows hardness of heart (eg: athlete competiveness combined with cheating has not caught up with his brain in real time). He does have an empire amassed to save, yet the contrition is not apparent yet. Meaning, Lance is still suffering from pumped-up, high profile fame addiction… perhaps.
Performance enhanced ‘med science’ was the reason for his 7 tour de france wins. I don’t respect that easily with “winning” athletes. A faker is a faker, Period. No judgement intended though. Fame addiction and stealing other people’s best endeavors was what Lance’s backers achieved with Lance. NZ’s PM John Key‘s publicst no.2 talks on phone (as an independant journalist, apparently… :) while a pic of plane is shown. Apparently Antarctica is on the cards. An Italian restaurant gets AMAZING press in Otautahi (Christchurch)… how did that happen?! On them. Tauranga grieves lost citizens in Kenya. Where I live, we have the same story… metaphorically speaking. Yet, literally too.
Economist and soccer club owner, Gareth Morgan enlightens how $1b+ in loans were issued in NZ in a week. That means people have been encouraged to buy up houses in bundles. A monopoly now exists of ‘cluster-homes’ owners. NZ’s govt. were the architects of it. It is greed and fear mentality – yet wise investment too. :) (more…)
CH.AIRY AUST.ABRIANS – “CHINA’S” DAIRY NEEDS + SOUTH CANTERBURY “FARM CO-OPS” PROCESSING PLANTS + AUSSIE BANK CLIENTS + SINGAPORES MARKET
a few buzz words for dairy types:
safe milk-sourced foods. Chinese companies [should] live up to the powerful New Zealand brand image. Chinese using the attributes of the New Zealand brand in China. false fronts impersonating “New Zealand” brand attributes. falsifying prophet levels with counterfeit ingredients. South Canterbury’s joint ventures with China. Land buys. Water share. Protein share acquisition. GFC designed solvencies and NZ hit companies. Don Brash. O.I.O. Appoint NZ directors. Taupo China joint land-ventures. Zong Qinghou. Kelly Zong. Australian focused Chinese company supply chain venture. New Zealand is the second largest offshore provider of dairy protein for China’s kids for the Chinese market with an 18% market share. Singapore has 37% market share. Australia has 15% market share.
What we’re talking about is “the price of distribution” of NZ whenua, water, sun, minerals flows via agriculture. The reason given is China’s growing markets. Yet there’s nothing stopping a Chinese company distributing NZ’s water benefits (via protein sales) anywhere they want to in the world, thus undercutting in time, NZ’s supply chain.
So, how high is that cost really? [Photo - South Canterbury South Island].
–Fran Sullivan talks last year’s hot topic, this year’s fleece… when discussing “the face of protein” superimposed on NZ’s water supply chain propensity in the world – and who gets the bulk of those flows… and who doesn’t. Read her article here. Very informative. Thanks Fran.
[recap: Aussie banks. China investors. Singapore's market... and South Canterbury taking a chunk].
General summary: The top 1% in the world… are surrounding NZ’s water, land, farming flows in these deals and discussion. Is 99% of NZ happy? Included? Involved? Getting the best value? (more…)
At risk of being chomped by the E.U’s GFC structured economic models, The UK Telegraph runs with a story today for the Brit Parliament.
“David Cameron must seize back control of employment and social laws from Brussels and stop European nationals from claiming benefits in this country.”
On the cards are the words: social + employment law. opt-out provisions from laws + policy. a rather imaginary “emergency brake” on financial flows. curbing expenditure of EP’s move to Brussels + Strasbourg. (more…)

It’s official, the USA isn’t the only nation to have raised Pretty Little Liars audiences of the TV drama series. Apparently, most New Zealanders were honest enough to admit they lie and cheat in a new survey.
Scoop reports: How do lying, cheating, stealing adults impact a nation’s youth and children?
A Colmar Brunton survey showed: 81% of adults admit cheating. 36% cheat in a relationship. 22% at work. 8 % of young people say they have not cheated. Most youth then are cheating on their parents by lying. 24% of adults told a lie to their significant other. 50% in the last month. 70% are hit by guilt. 84% say cheating was justified. To avoid hurting a friend, was the common lie believed, when people [we] lie. 7% say, lying is never cool. 12% think to lie if cheating on your significant other in an affair is acceptable. 60% of adults steal. 50% say from a shop.
Youth have a blunt view in black and white of what it means to steal. (Our redemption, ahead).
Children learn through observation, so as adults we’re pretty rotton.
91% of adults think [our] personal ethics and character is on the right track. 57% think they [we] are better than most people they know. And so the deception continues in a vicious circle of pride (not good pride, blinding pride).
280 30+ people were serveyed December 2012. Colman Brunton is part of the Millward Brown network covering more than 51 countries around the world, and Kantar, WPP’s insight, information and consultancy group. www.colmarbrunton.co.nz.

We need to tell the truth as when we don’t it leads to civil war. Our police (let alone our children) deserve a better reality than to have to meet each other in that way, first.

telco‘s global footprint increasing via users is a hot topic online today. In the West smart phone companies + telco’s are hoping to get younger consumers on their grid.
That leads us to smart phone banking or banks via phone. Almost two years ago, when I returned from a rollercoaster, five years in the USA to New Zealand, a TV program on TV7 (a science platform at the time) featured telephone banking. The TV presenter was in Soweto, South Africa looking at the M-Pesa system. What was amazing was that everyone was trading via phone with M-Pesa as they shopped. Even the most traditionally dressed farmers of Africa, had a phone to trade with. It was a very advanced trading system in South Africa with the locals, beneath the surface of poverty. I loved the program.
In the West telco’s hope to do the same with phones. It’s the new frontier of technology and banking systems. So, let’s turn to Matt Stoller ‘s comments who observes two companies making inroads to do that. Stoller writes:
“I went to Kenya last summer, and saw how a semi-competent telecom and banking system could work. Kenya has the world’s most innovative mobile payments system, called M-Pesa. M-Pesa is a cell phone based cash remittance system based on text messages. Unlike Chase’s Quickpay system, M-Pesa just works, and works well. (more…)
If you melt ice in the world large land masses will be covered. Islands will be covered. The fish and ocean resources in the oceans of Island terrains can still be accessed via ocean ships and vessels. Islands oil supplies can still be accessed by oil rigs, although Island nations lands may be covered or partially covered. Tsunamis will also increase.

New Zealand’s news bulletin @6pm Saturday, featured sports news that was tennis and cricket led. The rest of the news was about beaut weather and all about push backs. In one story, the Anglican Church still will not allow woman Bishops. Why? Who knows.
The UK has taken to running stories in 2013 of how illegal America’s wealthy have been over the years. ‘Moral integrity’ seems to be lacking in the news tale of corruption. A swiss bank is closing down as a result of laundering (hiding) US millionaire’s wealth. US law has fined the bank, causing it to close. In local news, the South Island of New Zealand pushes back against the North’s population’s dominance.
Insurance is not just and right for some Christchurch City property owners we learn. While Aucklanders in the North want to socialize people to build up and live in apartments, the South want NZ to keep believing in and funding the South’s $30b plus rebuild of Christchurch City’s construction plans.

World News, USA: Stock markets in Asia chillaxed as the US neared a deal to stop hundreds of billions of dollars in automatic tax increases and spending cuts from kicking in. The world is observing the biggest economy’s stability planning assortment of policy options at this time.
Australia and Hong Kong markets boomeranged on the first trading day of the year after the Democratic-led US Senate passed an emergency measure to avert much of the impact of the tax-and-spending changes. In Aussie-Hong Kong new benchmarks were set.
Middle-class tax increases and across-the-board spending cuts were averted for now, by a weary US Congress. The bill’s passage on a 257-167 vote in the House of Representatives sealed a hard-won political triumph for the President, a few weeks into his second term as the 44th President of the United States.
Mr Obama said: “Thanks to the votes of Republicans and Democrats in Congress I will sign a law that raises taxes on the wealthiest 2 per cent of Americans while preventing tax hikes that could have sent the economy back into recession.” (Obama is referring to the fact that 37% of the USA’s wealth in 2012 went to the top 1% of the American people, thus a balance needs to be sought for 2013).

He is a top businessman who is a water equaity capital trader. In other words, he successfully turns water (a water-based product) into banking capital for investment. He moves water’s benefits well.
He melded 10,500 NZ dairy farmers to think one way. Out of NZ. The exporting of NZ’s capital earned from water, turned white, to then become cash or gold. The gold can be invested or transferred in other parts of the world. His name is Sir Henry van der Heyden. He introduced a Dutchman, Theo Spierings as the new CEO of NZ dairy giant Fonterra. Theo writes and thinks clearly.
“Hey, it’s politics,” Sir Henry says of what he achieves in business acting as a face of change in NZ.
Like dairy. He now wants to meld the agricultural sector of the meat industry to be like a Fonterra. Same same is what NZX types think should happen with beef, another way of turning water into gold that is transferrable offshore for investment. “It is a job for a young man,” says Henry of the agricultural wrangle, to progress change.

The useful report given in a “pleased as punch” tone, is also penned at a time in NZ history that shows child poverty and youth unemployment levels are at an all time high in NZ history. In addition, the average NZ wage is $US36k p.a.
However, on “the wall,” if digital numbers going up in your bank account is the only thing you live for… it shows that more people should invest in NZ at this time. It also shows that foreign investors are.
A quote from Brian’s writing: “The numbers demonstrate that the New Zealand and Australian sharemarkets have delivered superior returns to Northern Hemisphere markets – in New Zealand dollar terms – since the end of 2000.”
NZ and Australian markets are seen as less risky to invest with, than certain uncertain overseas markets – is what Brian’s report reveals. (more…)
