“….. Here is the prediction: China will turn North Korea loose soon. The alliance will dissolve, or become stale. There will be political upheaval in China. Not a coup and not a revolution. Within the inner circles of that which you call Chinese politics, there will be a re-evaluation of goals and monetary policy. Eventually, you will see a break with North Korea, allowing still another dictator to fall and unification to occur with the south. ….”

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Google Exit Reminds Companies Asia Strategy Is Not Just China

Bloomberg, March 23, 2010, 2:08 AM EDT, By Frederik Balfour

March 23 (Bloomberg) -- Google Inc.’s retreat from China, where U.S. executives say the business climate is becoming less welcoming, may hasten moves by foreign companies to look beyond the world’s fastest-growing major economy for expansion in Asia.

Google rerouted its Chinese Web site and today began directing traffic to Hong Kong, fulfilling a pledge to stop censoring searches as required by China. The move follows an American Chamber of Commerce report released in Beijing yesterday that said some U.S. businesses are losing Chinese sales because of rules to support home-grown technology.

While China still “is the biggest game in town,” more recently “I see a lot of U.S. companies looking for alternatives,” Susan Schwab, U.S. Trade Representative between 2006 and 2009, said in an interview in Hong Kong last week.

General Electric Co., L’Oreal and New Balance are among companies with longstanding operations in China that are expanding in countries such as Vietnam and Indonesia. Asia’s emerging markets outside China are home to more than 2 billion people and have growth rates that are gaining on the world’s most populous country.

Rising costs in China are increasing the need to diversify. VF Corp., the owner of North Face outdoor apparel and Lee and Wrangler jeans, decided to “push our sourcing strategies and vendors outside China,” said Thomas Nelson, vice president of global product procurement. Indonesia now accounts for 8 percent of the Greensboro, North Carolina-based company’s $2 billion of global sourcing, double the amount three years ago, he said.


Cuts in tax rebates for exporters, accelerating inflation, stricter labor laws, a shortage of workers in coastal manufacturing hubs and assumptions that China’s currency will appreciate, making exports more expensive, are all adding incentives for companies to look elsewhere.

“A China-plus-one, or China-plus-two strategy is definitely an essential component of any large brand-buying operation due to rising labor costs and shortages in China,” said Judith Mackay, Asia apparel and license compliance manager at New Balance. The closely held Boston, Massachusetts-based maker of athletic shoes, plans to find sub-contractors in Indonesia to augment four plants in China and one in Vietnam.

Indonesia was Asia’s third-fastest growing economy after China and India last year, and with 248 million people, is the world’s fourth-largest population. Vietnam, with 90 million people, had the region’s fourth-fastest pace of growth.

Ford, GE

Ford Motor Co. Chief Executive Officer Alan Mulally said March 18 it’s “absolutely” important not to focus solely on China and to pursue growth in Asian countries. Ford has invested $1 billion in Thailand in a venture with Mazda Motor Corp. and on March 10 launched its first made-for-India model, the Figo, as part of an $840 million investment there.

GE’s energy arm sees “huge” potential in selling equipment to producers of geothermal power in Indonesia, the company’s Kuala Lumpur-based Southeast Asian president Stuart Dean said in a phone interview. GE’s $61 million wind-turbine plant in Haiphong, Vietnam, is set to open this year as is Intel Corp.’s $1 billion chip test and assembly plant in Ho Chi Minh City.

French cosmetics maker L’Oreal is spending $50 million to expand its Jakarta manufacturing facility to produce mass market cosmetics under its Garnier and L’Oreal Paris brands.

Google, based in Mountain View, California, has less to lose in China than many multinational companies. Google derives about $600 million, or 2.5 percent of sales in China, compared with $10.7 billion, or 24 percent, for Melbourne-based Rio Tinto Group, the world’s third-largest mining company. Four Rio executives went on trial in Shanghai this week charged with accepting bribes.

Cyber Attacks

Google said Jan. 12 that it was the subject of a cyber attack originating in China. Hackers stole intellectual property from Google and targeted e-mail accounts of human-rights activists, it said.

Facebook Inc., which last week overtook Google as the most visited Internet site in the U.S., has avoided a misstep in China, where its site is blocked. The social networking company last week said it would open its first Asian operations center in Hyderabad.

Google also has a hub in the southern Indian city. The company controls 88 percent of the market for Web searches in India, a country of 1.2 billion people where the economy has expanded at an average pace of 8.5 percent in the past five years, compared with China’s 9.8 percent.

Chinese Rules

Chinese government rules to encourage home-grown technology are causing companies to cry foul, the American Chamber of Commerce said. Three ministries posted a notice in November requiring sellers of everything from computer software to office equipment to accredit their products for inclusion among companies offering equipment with “indigenous innovation” to the Chinese government.

Twenty-eight percent of 203 members responding to the chamber’s survey said they are losing business because of the policy. Foreign companies are concerned the rules may extend beyond the 599 billion yuan ($87.8 billion) government- procurement market to orders from state-owned enterprises, which last year had combined revenue of 22.5 trillion yuan.

“Many foreign companies are starting to believe that the future China business opportunity is shrinking,” said James McGregor, a senior counselor in Beijing at APCO Worldwide, a public affairs company.
