Recommended Posts

Welcome to the White Ajah Winter Ball!  I just finished up at the kiss and cry, so give me a minute to change into my gown.

The Winter Ball is a place for athletes to relax in between their sports, and to mingle with those of other countries (or Ajahs/Disciplines).

 

So come in and have a seat.

Oh, this is lovely in deed.

 

I'm not exactly an athlete, but I do appreciate the opportunity to mingle with all you lovely folks.

Some hot chocolate would certainly warm the spot.

 

I'll consider arm wrestling for later on, perhaps. Anyone have a football around? I could toss that around for a while.

Looking very dapper, Ben! Would you be willing to chance your feet? I'm not the most elegant of dancers ... lol

Having taken the oaths, I have cut my lifespan in half, but I should still have at least a couple hundred years left barring trolloc attacks or the like. I should most certainly have time. Shall we dance?

    • Because the aiel are standing around in loose formation with weapons that are poor at countering cavalry. 
    • Thanks everyone! And welcome Lessa--I'll consider it.
    • It should also be noted that unlike the investments by the Soviet Union in the Third World the Chinese have not particularly engaged or seen a need to supply military arms to friendly governments or entered into military alliances. The Chinese involvement is almost exclusively economic. It should also be noted that while the Chinese have in fact invested billions in the Third World much of their investments are at best problematic. They have essentially have had to write off 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 billion of investments in Cuba. Their deal with Venezuela for Oil is at best economicly doubtful.   Since 2008 China has also invested between 5 and 10 billion dollars in the Nickel, tin and copper industries of the Andes countries. At this time has actual production not gone up  but capacity has also remained rather stagnant. And let's not even mention the investment black hole that is Brazil, where the only thing that disappears quicker then international investments is accountable politicians.   Now I hope (for the sake of the people in Latin America) that the current wave of Chinese investments actually raise economic production and living standards but from the prior experiences of the British, French, Germans, Americans and Canadians I think that Chinese investments are even less likely to work out either for the Chinese investors or the people of the of the effected Latin American countries. I say this because nothing that the Chinese are doing or the other nations have done has changed the fundamental business culture in those countries. It's not so much that the economies in those countries work on crony capitalism but that their economic system actually resembles more a crony type of fuedalism with a dash of fascism thrown in. Until that fact changes the likelihood that conditions in those countries will substantially improve is in my opinion doubtful at best.
    • Actually the amounts they have spent have all been on a reciprical bases. They are getting deals on natural resources in return for their investments. Also your historical knowledge of the amounts invested in the Third World by the West is faulty at best. The amount of loans to the Third World and other investments by The World Bank and private lenders that have had to be written off simply dwarfs the investments that the Chinese have and are making. I also see nothing terribly wrong with such investments. The Third World is getting capital which it is for once using to actually grow their economic production and the Chinese are getting raw resources.
