Kim Jong-un, Psy and Fat-Cheeked Korean Messiahs

Not even Miley Cyrus and her cheeks are keeping a new generation of fat-cheeked Asians from dominating the front pages of the global media.

Take N. Korea’s Baby Boss Kim Jong-un. The past year he’s had more screen acreage than Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian combined. That’s not necessarily a bad thing for us Asians in America. A refresh of the stale media equations will dislodge some of those disempowering old stereotypes.

Kim isn’t the embodiment of an Asian ideal by any means. It’s heinous to execute your ex-girlfriend, fire and possibly execute your uncle and mentor, and gorge nightly on caviar and imported champagne while a fifth of your people starve and two hundred thousand are worked to death in labor camps.

But let’s face it — the mass media dote on people who elevate brattiness into high-wire acts. That dotage transmografies the images associated with highly bad behavior into the bits of cultural debris that, from a future vantage point, resolves into relevance and coolth — the currencies of cultural power and empowerment in our media-drunk age.

Even to a jaded world Kim’s high-wire act has been more engrossing than the foibles of publicity-hungry celebs. For one, Pyongyang Pudge has tangible power, not only over his long-suffering people but over the people of wary neighboring nations. He can evidently lob missiles across the Pacific and set off uranium nukes which, in time, can be miniaturized and placed atop those missiles. The artillery pieces positioned along the DMZ can rain twenty thousand radioactive shells on Seoul per hour to quickly render that city of 24 million uninhabitable for a generation or two. Kim’s small army of hackers can disrupt the banking systems and media of neighboring countries, as they did to S. Korea’s earlier this year.

That kind of power surpasses anything that Justin Bieber or even John Boehner wield. Barack Obama and a few other national leaders may be able to order nuke launches that can actually hit their target. But as sane leaders, none will ever entertain the possibility except as defensive contingencies. In other words, their brat quotients are hovering around zero. That means their power, as awesome as it may be in the abstract, won’t sell pageviews.

Kim’s surreal blend of erratic power, youth, bad haircut, Mao suit and fat cheeks are likely to add up to a cultural icon that will come to recall an era — not unlike Mao Zedong, John Kennedy, the Beatles, Bruce Lee, Richard Nixon and Ho Chi Minh, for example. Kim’s extreme youth makes him more interesting to young people who would otherwise pay little attention to the shenanigans of political leaders.

Kim has become so recognizable that he has even inspired at least one full-time professional impersonator in the person of a Chinese Australian named Howard. Wandering the streets of Hong Kong last month, Howard was instantly recognized as Kim by passersby. Would most Americans instantly recognize and demand photo ops with passing impersonators of Bieber, Katy Perry or Liam Helmsworth?

Kim has added a new edge to the Asian image to help shred old stereotypes of meek conformity, obsequiousness toward elders, and slavish hand-me-down devotion to western culture. Eccentric as are Kim’s Mao suit and palm-tree cut, at least he’s no slave to western culture. A distinctive look is de rigueur for pop icons and Kim’s look is far more unique than those affected by legions of South-Central-inspired pop artists around the world.

In short, the iconizing of Kim is a sledge-hammer blow to the stereotypes born of the suburban imaginations of yesterday’s TV writers and directors.

Another chubby-cheeked Korean who commands media frenzy is Psy, the biggest pop star ever to hit the internet. For two years running his videos have had more views than those of the next three biggest stars combined. Having managed that with just two songs, imagine the media frenzy that will greet the driblets teased from his first international album. They should begin leaking into cyberspace later this week, probably ahead of his 5-day Seoul concert stand.

Psy will inevitably return to the front pages of every pop-culture medium around the world for at least the next several months, and his music will drown out every other pop artist for the duration. With his cherubic cheeks and holiday timing, his image may even become superimposed over that of Santa Claus. It’s about time the old guy looked more Asian.

Like Kim, Psy has inspired impersonators and Halloween costumes. Psy brings pleasure with his zany sense of fun and kooky individuality while Kim appears to be perpetuating misery with his obsession with control. But the duo share one important trait — utter disrespect for the established order. Meek, humble and submissive would be the perfect antonyms for the adjectives that would best describe them. Psy greets packed stadia of adoring fans around the world with the same controlled composure with which Kim greets the masses made to turn out for official events. Like Kim, Psy was born to power. In their messianic public presences, they at times recall another apple-cheeked Korean — the late Reverend Sun Myung-moon.

The domination of the global media by the sheer force of their personalities have made these two fat-cheeked Koreans — love them or hate them — the most visible exponents of the new attitude visibly emerging among today’s generation of Asians, and Asian Americans — the deep-down sense that the world is finally but swiftly turning our way — and that it’s about time.

Kim and Psy are the ultimate in-your-face challenges to those who would dare recall the old mocking images of those comically clueless chubby-cheeked Asians of yesterday’s stereotypes. These two not only seem to have some clues, they’ve assembled them into a plan for conquering, if not the world, at least the world’s collective imagination.

Maybe Kim Jung Un is not totally apathetic towards the common North Korean who is starving and their country’s economy in shambles. I know the North Koreans don’t want to follow China’s leadership and economic advise but again maybe this kid studied Keynesian economics in Switzerland as they say. I’m also aware whether North Korean or South Korean = they don’t like the Chinese in general similiar to the Japanese actually. It’s a love hate relationship with Japan while Koreans in general want to be like the Japanese and envy them while disliking the Chinese.

“It’s a love hate relationship with Japan while Koreans in general want to be like the Japanese and envy them while disliking the Chinese.”

Chinese are the ones who want to be like Japanese. The display this without shame, just look at Hong Kongians and Taiwanese. The Chinese have the love-hate relationship with Japan. It is true the Koreans hate Chinese but they are equal opportunist and hate the Japanese as well. With the rise of asinine Chinese aggression Korea and Japan will have to put their differences aside and come together militarily to fend off the sh*t storm that is China.

China is excersizing its right to ADIZ just as South Korea and Japan at the urging of the U.S after the Korean War and Vietnam War. South Korea and Japan are Proxy Client States for U.S. In the event of war China can absorb military damage – South Korea and Japan in the event of War will be devasted and in rubble. U.S will be far away with Mainland U.S relatively unscathed unless China decideds to retaliate with nuclear weapons if escaltions arise.
If the reports out of Japan are true regarding Fukushima 4 reactors. Japan is Fucked. Just a question of time.
U.S days of PetroDollar domination will be over soon and the advantages U.S Dollar Reserve achieved after WW2 are numbered.

“Little Trouble in Big China: iPhone spells trouble for Samsung, others in China”

If Xiaomai was in the league of Apple and Samsung I would agree it may be possible for Xiaomi to be a threat. Xiaomi’s success can be attributed to the Chinese consumers who were thrilled to see a Chinese company make smartphones “apparently” on par with Apple and Samsung. But companies like Xiaomi will never surpass Apple or Samsung simply because Xiaomi exist to mimic Apple and Samsung. Without Apple or Samsung Xiaomi would simply have nothing to copy or mimic. And like HTC Xiaomi can drop out of consumer favor in a heartbeat, while Apple and Samsung can rely on other areas of income if smartphone market decreases.

Chinese smartphone market, a lot like Chines auto-market, will be dominated by foreign multinationals and will continue to be battled out by multinationals. Chinese brand will maintain a distant third or fourth as long as foreign multinationals are releasing models.

The Chinese neither have the patience or the know-how and economical system incentivizing to foster innovation. The knuckle-head communist politburo does not realize that it cannot “force” innovation.

One thing Chinese excel at is “Claiming” they will be this and that and do this and that in the future. It would benefit the Chinese to try to achieve without making bold statement. But then again hubris, without merit and substance, is a part of Chinese national and genetic characteristics.

China being the biggest market does not help the Chinese in terms of innovation. Chinese companies can appeal to the Chinese market only and survive. That is not a good thing because Chinese consumers are not sophisticated. Rather, they are swayed most often, not by the quality or the integrity of the products, but by nationalistic knee-jerk emotional reactions. Therefore Chinese companies can appeal to the market without innovating and resorting only to nationalistic and patriotic sentiment. This also does not encourage Chinese companies to invest and innovate to produce products that can compete on international market. Therefore exportability of their products will not occur in the scale needed.

China only knows size and quantity. They have too much hubris to be humble to cater to smaller, but more sophisticated, markets. Only appealing to Chinese market can be a worthwhile endeavor IF Chinese economy and politics reform. However, we all know Chinese ain’t gonna reform in our lifetime at least. It will take at least 100 years for a reform, if it occurs, to fully wipe out current immoral, unethical, incivility. I predict their immoral, unethical, incivility along with their wicked leaders will not reform, but go back to a tyrannical and ass-backwards way.

China is fraught with unsophisticated morals. Their morals are a kin to 5 year old’s. They are their own source of downfall.

“You mean U.S policy of utilizing American Intelligence to overthrow governments and create unstable chaos with “democratic” elements. I suppose this is managed chaos/reform.”

The military industrial complex machine that raises and collapses regimes and dictators around the world for profit, while unfortunately a reality, is hardly the workings of Constitutional American modus operandi. United States does not operate under the Constitution any longer. U.S. politics are filled with Progressives (neo marxist) and neo-cons who are controlled by a small group behind the curtain.

“Morality is such a existential dubious hypocrisy filled with misery and suffering.”

NO, what you are pointing to isn’t the outworking of morality but outworking of evil men. And one requires morality to even describe hypocrisy, misery and suffering. Ignorant puppies like yourself does not recognize things for what it is. You dismiss morality as “dubious” while touting your own flawed morals.

The current relations between west and China is the outworking of might makes right. China’s childlike moral sensibility is being tolerated because immoral west has lost their moral bearings as well as being subject to China’s cheap labor. In other words, China’s counterfeiting, fraudulent and immoral behaviors are tolerated because the west is bankrupt.

Era of renminbi dawns as China’s influence grows: FT.com/policy/china

RMB Currency is set to acquire international status in three years
“The Chinese currency, the renminbi, is not terribly well known at the moment, but over my lifetime it’s going to become almost as familiar as the US dollar.” So said George Osborne during a recent visit to Shanghai.
At first glance, this might seem unrealistic. The renminbi is hardly a global investment currency and barely registers on central bank balance sheets. So any change would require a profound shift in the financial landscape.

Beware reform hype over India stocks
Central bankers must embrace glasnost
Japan no longer a backwater for investors
Secular stagnation risk for EU and Japan
Yet the renminbi is evolving at a remarkable pace. As a medium of exchange and unit of account, it is on course to acquire international status in three years; in 10, it may unseat the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.
The renminbi’s growing stature is visible on many fronts. The first is trade. History shows the currencies of countries that play an important role in the global economy have developed into major players on the world stage. And with China the globe’s biggest trading nation, the renminbi has momentum in its favour. It is already the world’s ninth most traded currency and recently replaced the euro as the second most heavily used in international trade finance.
So conditions are ripe for the renminbi to become a major trading currency over the next three years. By then it should account for about 5 per cent of global trade, a fivefold increase on the 2012 figure.
Its transformation into a global investment currency is also progressing rapidly. Here the catalysts are financial reform and capital market expansion. Under plans unveiled by President Xi Jinping, China aims to extend the yield curve for government bonds and create a capital market that serves the needs of a broad range of borrowers and investors, domestic and foreign. This development, alongside a prospective widening of the renminbi’s trading band, should boost the currency’s credentials as an international investment vehicle.
China’s renminbi-denominated debt market is already the largest in emerging markets. The volume of international bonds outstanding has expanded by some 800 per cent during the past three years and the market has played host to foreign issuers such as McDonald’s and Caterpillar.
While the market is largely off limits to international investors, Mr Xi’s reforms suggest this situation will soon reverse. So, in five years, the renminbi should become a top-three issuing currency in the international bond market alongside the euro and dollar.
Ground to make up
It is as an international reserve currency that the renminbi has most ground to make up. Currently only 0.01 per cent of world central bank foreign exchange reserves are held in renminbi. That compares with 60 per cent in dollars and 25 per cent in euros. But this tiny percentage masks an underlying reorientation towards the renminbi – a process that began in 2005 when China abandoned fixed exchange rates.
Before then the dollar was the only reference point for developing world central banks. By some distance the largest constituent of policy makers’ foreign exchange assets, it exerted a big influence on the behaviour of emerging market currencies.
Since 2005, however, a different pattern has emerged. The dollar’s pull on emerging market currencies – or the co-movement between the dollar and other units – has waned. Previously, when the dollar moved 1 per cent, emerging market currencies would head in the same direction by an average of 0.8 per cent. Today, the co-movement is closer to 0.5 per cent.
Scene is set
The dollar’s loss has been the renminbi’s gain. Where it once had no influence at all, a 1 per cent move in the renminbi today causes a 0.1 to 0.2 per cent shift in other emerging currencies. As China’s economic influence grows, this tendency can only strengthen. Should trends persist, the currency could account for 30 per cent of central bank foreign exchange reserves by 2025, when it begins to threaten the dollar’s reserve currency status.
An obstacle on the path to renminbi dominance is China itself. It has shown reluctance to open up its capital account, while its export-dependent economy and huge holdings of US Treasuries mean policies that lead to currency appreciation are not necessarily favoured by policy makers.
But the benefits of an international currency – low borrowing costs and reduced exchange rate risk – should eventually prove too alluring for the Chinese authorities to ignore. The scene is set, then, for the unit to come of age and for renminbi-denominated securities to evolve into core holdings for global investors, probably at the expense of US dollar assets. The era of the renminbi is upon us.

“But China has succeed in spite of sabatage.”

I wouldn’t equate any notion of “success” with modern day China. 800 million out of poverty you say? That’s not a success story but rather a pathetic story of how Marxism was a colossal failure. Its amuses me how current thugs, known as the Politburo, say they do not want “western form” of democracy (as if there are any other type of democracy), all the while having embraced Marxism which was born in the “west”. First, the west today does not have democracy but are socialists (idiotic Chinese cannot recognize). Second, democracy is mob-rule politics that is inferior. Third, United States was a Constitutional Republic, it never was a democracy.

Will the Yuan ever be a reserve currency? No way. It may be one of the many currencies that will be used but there will not be one reserve currency as the Dollar was after the fall of the dollar (yes the dollar will collapse).

The rise of China is bad not only for humanity but for Chinese as well. Chinese leaders see Chinese as working roaches and nothing more. And the Chinese themselves act like working roaches. They are docile drones who look to their leaders for instructions on how to wipe their asses. This sort of behavior has been exacerbated by Marxism, but has been a long trait of Chinese that spans millennium.

China may have attained wealth through their backbreaking cheap labor, but the you cannot take the China out of a Chinese. Their immoral, cutting corner, shady shrewdness that arises out of everyone trying to screw each other will not benefit humanity at the end of the day. And the current proclivity of the west’s desire to continue to work with unethical and immoral Chinese are a reflection of the decline of morals of the west. Chinese will remain Chinese.

China has the world’s fastest growth in living standards:
http://abclog.typepad.com/keytrendsinglobalisation/2013/10/china-has-the-worlds-fastest-growth-in-living-standards.html

China has the world’s fastest growth of consumption while its population lives significantly longer than would be expected from China’s level of economic development. These facts clearly establish China has easily the world’s fastest rise in living standards.

One of the strangest claims about China that sometimes appears in the media is that it has a slow growth of consumption and living standards. In reality China has the fastest growth of consumption of any country in the world – whether this is measured only by household consumption or includes government consumption on areas vital for quality of life such as education and health. Furthermore, indicators show that compared to other countries, China’s quality of life is better than would be expected from its present stage of economic development.

First the facts regarding these issues will be established and then they will be analyzed.

Table 1 shows the growth rates of consumption, both total and household, for the G7 and BRIC economies. These economies are selected for comparison as, given China’s size, the appropriate comparison is with major economies – not Caribbean islands or African states. Nevertheless including small economies would make no difference – China would still be seen to have the world’s fastest consumption growth rate.

13 10 27 Consumption Table 1

The fundamental period of comparison used is from 1978, the beginning of China’s economic reform, to 2011 – the latest date for which figures are available for all countries. However, as data is not available for Russia before 1990, a comparison for 1990-2011 is also given.

The pattern is clear. China’s average annual increase in total consumption was 7.9 percent in 1978-2011 and 8.5 percent in 1990-2011. The increase in household consumption in the same periods was 7.7 percent and 8.1 percent. China’s are easily the world’s highest rates of growth of both household and total consumption.

By comparison, India, ranking second after China, has an annual rate of total consumption increase in the same periods of 5.4 percent and 5.9 percent and its rates of increase of household consumption are 5.2 percent and 5.9 percent.

The U.S., by comparison, had an annual growth rate of total consumption of 2.7 percent in 1978-2011 and 2.5 percent in 1990-2011. U.S. growth rates of household consumption are 2.9 percent and 2.8 percent in the same periods. China’s consumption growth rate was therefore almost three times as fast as the U.S.

It is obvious that such a rise in consumption – an increase in quantity and quality of food, housing, holidays, phones, cars, furniture, health care etc. – is a decisive factor in determining any country’s living standards. China’s rapidly growing numbers of smartphones, cars, internet users, those taking foreign holidays etc. reflect its rising living standards. However some people attempt to claim, entirely falsely, that China’s dramatic increases in consumption may be offset by other factors – for example weaknesses in health care, deterioration in the environment etc.

Fortunately, this can be tested objectively. Life expectancy, as is well known, is a very sensitive indicator of overall living conditions. As well as most people having a direct goal of living longer, length of life also summarizes the combined impact of health, environment, consumption and other factors on human well-being.

12 10 27 Lif Expectancy

As people in China live significantly longer than would be expected given its economic development level any claim China’s rapid rise in consumption is more than offset in terms of rising living standards by health, environmental or other considerations is false. The evidence is clear that environmental, health and other factors affecting health quality are superior in China than would be expected for its level of economic development.

None of this is grounds for complacency. What have been analyzed here are growth rates, not absolute levels. China’s life expectancy (73.5 years) is still significantly behind the US (78.6 years) let alone Italy (82.1 years) or Japan (82.6 years). China must still undergo a prolonged period of economic growth before it achieves the highest levels of developed economies.

Nevertheless China is developing from a situation where in 1949 it was one of the world’s least developed countries. It is therefore ridiculous utopianism, which in practice would lead to the wrong policies, to believe China can in one step achieve the highest levels of the most advanced economies. The relevant question is whether China is developing living standards and consumption more rapidly than other economies, in which case it is catching up with them, or whether it is developing more slowly than other countries – in which case it is falling behind.

But given that China has the world’s fastest growth of consumption, why is the totally erroneous statement made that China underdevelops consumption? Such claims commit the elementary mistake of confusing China’s growth rate of consumption, the world’s highest, with the percentage of consumption in GDP – which is low in China. But for change in the population’s living standards what counts is how fast their consumption is growing, not the percentage of consumption in GDP – for example the percentage of consumption in GDP of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is an extremely high 89% but it is the world’s poorest country for which data exists!

The conclusion is therefore absolutely clear. China has by far the fastest growth rate of consumption in the world, together with life expectancy significantly above that which would be expected given its level of economic development. China, in short, has easily the world’s fastest rise of living standards.

Congress at Work: The House Votes to Uphold the Indefinite Detention of Americans:
http://guardian.com/us/constitution/human-rights.html

n case you missed it, last Thursday our illustrious House of Representatives voted on an amendment that would have blocked the possibility for the President to lock up American citizens without a trial. Unsurprisingly, our so-called “representatives” once again voted against protecting the constitutional rights of the citizenry in the name of the Orwellian, never-ending “war on terror.” If you need a refresher on the NDAA and the authoritarian power it grants the executive branch, I suggest you read one of my most popular posts ever: NDAA: The Most Important Lawsuit in American History that No One is Talking About.

After the amendment’s failure, its sponsor Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash) correctly called out Republicans for their complete and total hypocrisy when it comes to “big government.” He stated:

“This is a vote against the United States constitution and it is a vote against due process. It is mind-boggling and extremely disappointing that the party who claims to fear big government overreach has voted against an amendment to prevent the government from indefinitely detaining individuals detained on U.S. soil –- including U.S. citizens.”

Huffington Post
June 16,2013

WASHINGTON — The U.S. House of Representatives voted again Thursday to allow the indefinite military detention of Americans, blocking an amendment that would have barred the possibility.

Supporters of detention argue that the nation needs to be able to arrest and jail suspected terrorists without trial, including Americans on U.S. soil, for as long as there is a war on terror. Their argument won, and the measure was defeated by a vote of 200 to 226.

But opponents, among them the Rep. Adam Smith (D-Wash.), who offered the amendment to end that authority, argued that such detention is a stain on the Constitution that unnecessarily militarizes U.S. law enforcement.

“It is a dangerous step toward executive and military power to allow things like indefinite detention under military control within the U.S.,” Smith said. “That’s the heart and essence of this issue.”

Smith’s amendment, which also had Republican sponsors including Reps. Chris Gibson (N.Y.) and Justin Amash (Mich.), would guarantee that anyone arrested in the United States gets a trial.

You know, we need to destroy the country in order to save it. For a full list of the Representatives that voted for and against the amendment go here. In the event your Representative failed to vote yes, I suggest you call, email and tweet at their office in order to express your extreme displeasure.
