Don961:  China and the financial sector

Sunday 15 September 2019

 When it comes to economic development, depending on the existence of the elements to achieve this goal, the task requires priorities to be taken into account, in order to reach the desired integration in all parts of the local economy. 

In any case, the construction process requires international contact with economies that are weighted around the globe, which is obvious among the world economies seeking mutual benefit for sustainability.

Today, we have a broader orientation towards the Chinese economy, although the trade cooperation between the two countries is not the result of the moment. Financial.

Indicators confirm that the volume of trade exchange with China touched 37 billion dollars, and adopt mechanisms dealing through regional banks, and here we must in fact have a banking system capable of managing this process, through the adoption of correspondent banks or the opening of branches of Chinese banks inside Iraq, as can The adoption of bilateral partnerships in the financial sector, the result of which banks are sober leading to the mutual benefit of the economies of the two countries.

."Life" by PinkRoses - 9.15.19

Entry Submitted by PinkRoses at 5:05 PM EDT on September 15, 2019

Life is a gift. When we are born and who and how we are raised and the path that takes we are not given a choice. For some it's the happiest time of their lives, but for others it is a time of just surviving without love being shown to them.

When we reach adulthood that is when we get to choose how we embrace our life for good with love or for evil with hate. Some choose good and love, and some choose evil and hate.

Being part of Dinarland on this journey we all have seen good and love and we have seen evil and hate. No matter how many years you have been involved on this journey it has led you to this moment of time to receive the blessing that is about to be bestowed on us.

Why Don’t Americans Save?

.Why Don’t Americans Save?

From Get Rich Slowly By J.D. Roth — updated on 07 November 2018  
 
A new report from the Center for Financial Services Innovation says that only 28% of Americans are financially healthy. And it reinforces something we already knew: The U.S. saving rate sucks. Americans don't save.
 
The U.S. Financial Health Pulse divides people into three tiers of financial health.
 
Financially healthy people (28% of the U.S., 70 million people) are “spending saving, borrowing, and planning in a way that will allow them to be resilient and pursue opportunities over time.” 

Financially coping people (55%, 138 million) are “struggling with some, but not necessarily all, aspects of their financial lives.”
 
Financially vulnerable people (17%, 42 million) are “struggling with all, or nearly all, aspects of their financial lives.”

 
Financial Health Of Americans

The full report is huge — it's an 80-page PDF! — and filled with data based on survey responses from 5000 people. The document does a great job of presenting the info, separating it into four major sections (spend, save, borrow, plan), then comparing how people in each financial health tier differ in their approaches.
 
Here, for instance, are the results for the survey question about saving rate:

Chattels   Saudi Arabia: Drone attacks knocked out half its oil supply

chattels   There was no immediate impact on global oil prices as markets were closed for the weekend. Benchmark Brent crude had been trading at just above $60 a barrel.

chattels   ....... the US blamed Iran, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeting, “There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen.”

chattels   Resurgent ISIS plans to seize Iraqi cities: Kurdistan Region VP

chattels   Timing of 2020 census bodes ill for Kurds in Iraq

chattels   The upcoming census will be held in accordance with a 2008 census law, which originally decreed for the census to be held between 2009 and 2010.

chattels   But in a country like Iraq, where everything has become politicized, holding a census at this stage of growing instability has a political dimension, and this move has generated concerns among Kurds.

Even the UNFPA, which works with the Iraqi government's statistics center as a consultancy agency, has attributed any chance for success of the looming census to a stable political and security atmosphere in the country.

chattels   Will holding the census impede any just resolution of Kurdish question in Iraq?

chattels   It can only be done through a swift resolution and normalization of areas disputed or otherwise, so that in addition to Kurds displaced from Kirkuk, displaced people from other parts of Iraq can return home.

chattels   The resignation of the Minister of Health from his post

chattels   BAGHDAD ( NINA ) - Minister of Health Dr. Alaa Alwan presented his resignation to Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi without knowing the reasons.

10 Things Rich People Know That You Don't

.10 Things Rich People Know That You Don’t

By Jocelyn Black Hodes

As a financial adviser, I have occasionally found myself feeling envious of certain clients. Not because of their wealth — but because they were disciplined and determined enough to do all the right things that enabled them to accumulate their wealth and, in many cases, retire early.

 Despite my expertise, I, like a lot of people, sometimes struggle not to do the wrong things that make being rich, let alone retiring at all, a pipe dream.

 Financially responsible and successful people don’t build their wealth by accident — or overnight. Becoming rich takes serious willpower and long-term vision.

You have to be able to keep your eye on the prize of financial freedom, be willing to sacrifice your present wants for the sake of your future and develop good habits to win. Here are 10 habits you can start putting into practice now.

Start early

 As the old saying goes: The early bird catches the worm…or, in this case, gets to retire in style. The sooner you put your money to work, the more time it has to grow.

  Earning a paycheck, whether you are self-employed or work for a company, means the opportunity to contribute to an IRA, which you should seize ASAP.

  If you’re fortunate enough to get a job with a company that offers a matching contribution to their retirement plan, you need to make it a priority to enroll in the plan as soon as you are eligible. It can be the difference between retiring early and never retiring.

 Think about this: If you invested $10,000 and left it to grow for 40 years, assuming an average return per year of 8%, you would end up with over $217,000. But if you waited 10 years and invested $20,000 — twice as much — you would only end up with just over $200,000.

Whatever your situation might be, saving and investing money today is better than waiting until tomorrow. Start now.

 Automate

 You can be your own worst enemy when it comes to financial success. It’s all too easy to procrastinate and neglect what needs to be done and, meanwhile, give in to temptation and spend more than you should. It’s the perfect recipe for not becoming rich.

 The best way to protect yourself from yourself is to automate your savings.
