2017 In The Little Island

what has change... if at all

The calendar has changed
The spouse, the targets and the job remains the same
The moon still come when the sun sets
I still have loads of bills to pay & responsibilities to shoulder
The incremental costs of living remain too

Alas, so what's new? The new year is new - 2017

Stockmarket ~ 
Expect stock markets to see a pull back in early February
Any selldown shall rebound and range-bound trades with an upside bias into end 2nd-Quarter
Enjoy a good 3rd-Quarter
Exit before the year 2017 is up and out
Everyone loves to make money but few will do their homework; trade at your own risks

A fool is born every minute

Economy & Economics ~
So long as there are further controls and tightening of our economy, life gonna be tough
It's gonna crashed if costs continue to rise, unemployment and underemployment will multiply
The highly paid Mandarins shall remain indifferent as they submit to dollar-sense
While the regional economies rebound & perform, we will be stuck in the rut
It takes a steel will to level down, close the Gini-coefficient and return monies to the mass

Talks are cheap

Revolution or Evolution ~ 
The Arab Spring was ignited by the slightest spark with: i)disgruntled youths ii)Unemployment iii)dictatorship iv)corruption v)social media vi)bungled state response & indifference
The 2011 Chinese pro-Democracy movement were weeded out before it could manifest as the Chinese then were not hungry nor horribly deprived unlike the Mid-East

Haha - do not expect revolution here; evolution, maybe
Some things may evolve and forceful change is least likely
The installation of preferred person to head National Institutions remain
The dollar-base loyalty and the extensive reach will ensure that any disquietness will be nipped in the bud
The amended Statutes allow forceful enforcement and little tolerance for non-compliance

The mass is at the mercy of the few

Nobody loves troubles and uncertainty
Nobody wants to swim in the wilderness without sight of the shores
But, the rich cannot live in the sea of poors
Change shall come; GOD willing
But, it's gonna be non-violent and fairly consensual
Be patient - have faith 还是有一个天

The world is my oyster
I shall remain sober to change whatever I can & flows with those that are beyond me
Time is my best friend
I am a mortal manifested & guided by Faiths
Tomorrow shall comes
