Same Sex Marriages create Rear Door Entry to beat Migration Control.

1. Migration control and marriages

Most advanced countries have compassionate concession to their citizens regarding the immigration of their oversea spouses. This is understandable as it is unreasonable and impossible to stop people from their marriage to oversea people.

A country usually allows its citizens married to foreigners to bring the foreigners into the country. After a while, each such foreigner would be allowed to remain permanently in the country and even obtain citizenship.

2. Same sex marriages.

Each country used to encourage the populating of its land by its own citizens. For that reason, the country gives many benefits to married heterosexual couple of citizens who want to raise their own children.

The lefties have now succeeded in having those benefits also granted to same sex couples who live together. There are now legalized “same sex marriages” in many countries.

The principal purpose of a nation giving benefits and concessions to encourage the populating and occupation of its land by its own citizens seems to have been forgotten. Nations now give all benefits and concessions to all “marriages” whether or not for the purpose of populating of its land by their own citizens.

3. Same sex marriages can beat immigration control.

The list of countries (at 2018) allowing same sex marriage are: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States

Any country C in that list that wants to send its citizens to another country A in the same list can easily arrange to have many “same sex marriages” of its citizens to citizens of A. After that those citizens of C “married” to citizens of A can migrate to A.

It is almost impossible to defined whether each such marriage is “genuine” or “sham marriage for the purpose of beating immigration control”.

There used to be questions ask by Immigration Officers to check whether a heterosexual marriage is genuine or not. How can anyone devise such check for “same sex marriage” ? Note that having sex is not an essential requirement for any same sex marriage.

Trade war tactics, Part 1: Predatory pricing and tariffs.

Trade war tactics, Part 1: Predatory pricing and tariffs.

#trade war, #predatory pricing, #product dumping, #tariffs,

Trade war tactics, Part 1: Predatory pricing and tariffs.

1. Predatory pricing

Every company has to produce more than a minimum number of products to survive and any new company entering an established market may not have enough share in that market.

Rather than avoiding a crowded market, some company may adopt a strategy of selling well under its costs for a while to edge out all its competitors to capture the WHOLE market then using its newly gained monopoly to impose higher than previous (fair) market price to recover the expenditure incurred in knocking out its competitors. The method of selling under costs to knock out competitors is called predatory pricing and is an illegal practice in the US as well as in many other English speaking countries.

2. Known hard to enter established markets.

Most industries have minimum levels of productions. Some even need a whole national market to operate.

Example 1:

International airlines need to have 60% of their seats filled to break even and are usually backed by their own countries.

Example 2:

Railway industries are hard to profit from but are usually subsidized by their nations.

Example 3:

Steel industries can only operate their furnaces and machinery at production levels which are usually high.

Example 4:

Even a restaurant also needs minimum number of clients every day to pay its rent and outgoings.

3. Resisting predatory pricing.

A new enterprise entering an established market may sell under cost to introduce itself to customers, such practice is legal in the US.

“Pricing below your own costs is also not a violation of the law unless it is part of a strategy to eliminate competitors, and when that strategy has a dangerous probability of creating a monopoly for the discounting firm so that it can raise prices far into the future and recoup its losses.” [1]

So it is difficult for affected competitors to argue against such practice using the antitrust law [2].

The difficulty is compounded when when the company selling below costs is a foreign company obtaining partially built products from oversea. The Federal Trade Commission of the US and of similar countries [3] may not have jurisdiction. The rules by World Trade Organization [4,5] may have to be relied on.

4. Predatory pricing between national economies.

Each nation wants to have a self-sufficient economy so that in time of imminent war the nation can close its border (for fear of attack, infiltration and espionage from its neighbors). It has been an established practice of closing the border when there is any possibility of war (This has also been a teaching by Sun Tzu in his ancient text Art of War [6]).

In peace time, traders from each country may carry their goods across the borders to other countries to make their own profits from the difference in prices. This cross border trade supplies people in different countries with goods at lowest prices and benefits all countries.

Unfortunately, there are always aggressive rulers who want to use the surplus capacity of their economy to disrupt the self-sufficiency of their neighbors. For example, a country C with a command economy (taking orders from the government regardless of profit or loss) may use its surplus capacity in its steel making to sell its (nationally subsidized) steel cheaply to its neighbor A. Such selling for a prolonged time will certainly destroys the steel production capacity of country A. After 20 years or so of selling steel to A, country C may suddenly cut off its steel trade with A and declare war against A. In such scenario, the country A would be totally defenseless against C as it has no steel to produce weapons and armament for its army.

In a less dramatic scenario, the country C may sell its steel cheaply to another neighbor V to destroy its steel production capability then C throttle its steel supply to V (both with quantity and with types) to control the economy of V.

Similarly, country C may sell cheaply agricultural produces to agricultural neighbor V to destroy the agriculture of V. Country C then can dictate to V what crop and when to plant. In this way country V is totally under the command of C.

5. Assessing susceptibility to predatory pricing.

Chinese population is 1.500 millions while American is 326 millions, Australian is 22 millions.

If China produces clothing for all its citizen and export part of its clothing to Australia, Australian clothing industry has to go bankrupt (and it had).

If China produces hardware for all its citizen and export part of its hardware to Australia, Australian hardware industry has to go bankrupt (and it had).

If China produces steel for all its citizen and export part of its steel to America, American steel industry may go bankrupt.

6. Tariffs to the rescue.

Fortunately, sovereign governments can use tariffs to protect their vital industry such as steel, aluminum, defense, telecommunication.

The tariffs can be set at various levels suitable for the protection of the vital industries while still allowing other industries access to imported goods. The question is only what is an appropriate level.

Too low a tariff may not offer enough protection for the vital industries while too high a tariff may deny access to imported goods for other industries and weaken the overall economy.

7. Trade war by predatory pricing and tariffs.

Without tariffs aggressive countries may use predatory pricing to harm their trading partners.

The defending countries may use tariffs for their protections and the aggressor may accuse the defenders of engaging in trade war and the aggressor also put up its retaliatory tariffs. The others may again increase their tariffs and the tariffs level may increase without bounds [7,8,9,10].

The level of mutual tariffs may increase such that there will be any international trade left and a number of countries may enter their recession. The self-sufficiency of each nation will then be its survival factor.

8. Conclusions

a. Tariffs are not nice to advocate of free-trade but they are here to stay.

b. Tariffs are necessary, only their appropriate levels have to be determined.

c. Once countries enter trade war, there will be reduction in international trade and a number of countries may enter their recession. Countries with self-sufficiency will outlast their competitors.

People in Western countries have seen with their own eyes the method of forcing sale of valuables of borrowers by predatory pay day lenders, short terms money lenders or underworld lenders. Basically the borrowers needing the money must use their valuables (watches, rings, antique items) as security to obtain short term loans from pay day lenders or money lenders or underworld lenders. The interest rate from these lenders are outrageously high (10% a week, or even 10% a day) such that the loan grows exponentially to the point that the borrowers cannot repay and have to lose their valuables.

This practice has now spread to inter-national dealings between nations. Some Western governments such as Australia has attempted to banish this practice inside their own nations between their citizens but there is no obvious way to banish the practice when it is done between governments on international level as a form of expansionism.

1. Predatory loans to countries having corrupt governments.

The lending nations lend money to the borrowing nations which are run by their own corrupt governments. When the borrower nations cannot repay, they have to cede their lands and seas to the lender nations.

The media as well as both the Australian Australia Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and the US secretary of States have revealed this practice at government levels [1-10].

It is terrible in that the borrowing nations borrow the money to build their infrastructure but most of the money are stolen by their corrupt officials through “kick backs” while only infra-structures of white elephant type are built. Finally the borrowing nations cannot repay the interests and has to cede their lands, seas to the lender nations.

2. Countries involved.

There are many borrower countries, most of them have opaque governments:

Sri Lanka has handed its port to China [11-12].

Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea [13-14].

The list goes on with small nations in China’s OBOR plan [15-16].

3. Conclusions:

People in the whole World should demand that:

a. The UN should require its members to have transparency in inter-national lending and development plans.

b. Auditing (by non-interested parties to those loans) is required on each loan for it to be legitimate as auditing is the only obvious way to help small countries from being devoured by shark lending practice.

c. Inter-government debts should NOT be recognized when it has no transparency and no independent auditing. Otherwise the debt burden will be placed on the people of small nations who had received little benefits from the loans.

The method to return back to North Korea by Kim Jong Un may speak about future relationship with America.

1. The trip from North Korean to Singapore.

Mr Kim Jong Un took a China Airline as North Korea has no international carrier. There seems to be precaution against something [1].

2. The return trip from Singapore to North Korea.

If there is an agreement with Donald Trump that is unfavorable to China [2], Mr Un would have to hesitate using China Airline on his return trip. He may have to use Singaporean Airline or some Swiss Airline under escort by US and Japanese Airforces.

The incident to Lin Biao cannot be ignored [3].
