Hi,

I thought that we had done this and were in agreement.

O.K.  Hong Kong.  The British do not recognize China 1949.  They garrison Hong Kong and have a war with China.

Are wars free.  I  ...




If Britain had not recognized PRC so quickly in 1949 it might have had to walk away, barricade or fight.

Either way has financial implications.



We are in agreement. :)  All I wanted to point out is that HKG was the main reason and not some odd manufacturing base in Shanghai.

With a bit of luck Interesting will enlighten you with his thinking on the McMahon line, as it was himself that pointed out its importance.

I think the British still value Hong Kong as the banking base today.


However, we have Singapore as backup.....
and Kuala Lumpur as 2nd backup...

then....sadly Sydney which is probably too far away to be a convenient point for the 24 hour "sun never sets" banking network crucial to maintain London's strength.

Yes, Singapore is a backup but not KL. KL advertises Islamic banking on TV but not banking for East Asia. Malaysia doesn't have the right 'environment' for this.

India is a JOKE, mr. seneca.


They are just playing the SNAKEs game.
India is overpopulated 4 x over.....
Their per capita income is back to where it was in 2000. (Rupee depreciated, and they have 10-13% inflation).

They take in all the nonsense of the Amerikan Media, took in the FDI,
even bought all the Jaquar, and even built the Nano mini "stapled on" car.
Worse they can see that they are isolated in trade with Pakistan "Moslem" confrontation, Sri Lanka "Tamil conflict", and the annual monsoon disaster Bengal Moslem region of Bangladesh which also "sucked up" Indian garment making industry.

Worse, The Amerikan has prempt India with Afganistan occupation, just in case, India joke suddenly succeed to grow the ekonomi.
And the Indian knows it, so buys Akula Class submaring, and even Aircraft Carrier with new VSTOL Russian jumpjet.
....which of course...reinforced Japan, Korean, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore anxiety over possible AGGRESSIVE ENERGY HUNGRY India, should India succeed against the best prediction of Amerikan Regime strategic planners.

Only to reminded how vulnerable their EKONOMI is when the Mumbai stock market plummented with withdrawal of funds by International fund managers.
and now dramatic fall of the Rupee.
Of course, giving some nuclear help, in case the Indians decides to nuke China.....

It's a backup......
don't think it would be possible immediately...
noticed HSBC tripled it's office space in the city centre, in Chinatown.
HSBC also make CyberJaya as one of its back end function centre....
BEA has been invited to take up stake in AFFIN bank.....

and Quill Co. has been active in increasing class A office space.....

but, Hong Kong is not going to be Kaput in a short time.

India seems to have the biggest problems among BRIC countries to cope with the present economic downturn. Part of it is that huge amounts of money are diverted into the military and not into infrastructural improvements. Those Indians who profited from the economic boom are less than 100 million, or less than 10% of India's population. They are doing something wrong. Perhaps it's r3l1g10n that hinders real progress.
