    I lived in Poland for 6 years. Poland was given very large EU grants to improve their infrastructure and in my time time every road and every pavement  in Warsaw was recovered.
    It was common to see one guy leaning on a shovel whilst 6 others dug.

    This might sound harsh but the best thing that could happen to gambling addicts is to lose everything quickly.
    The sooner they hit rock bottom the sooner they can stop wasting their time gambling.

    There is only one person to blame and it isn't the gambling websites.
    And this comes from someone who has struggled with a gambling addiction on and off for nearly 40 years.
    People have been gambling for thousands of years, it will never stop. I have zero sympathy for anyone who has lost money gambling. Instead of trying to blame everyone else, gambling addicts need to look closer to home and get help for themselves. Stop blaming the gaming companies, no one is ever forced to make a bet.

    Roy reacted to HawkHybrid in Why the Price of Silver doesn't matter at all!   
    imo these strategies would work for gold but
    not for silver.
    in recent decades, silver is more tulip mania
    style charts(it's more important to be able
    to sell at the peaks than buy at the dips).
    eg if you bought gold on the dip in dec 2015
    you could sell on any dip afterwards and be
    up. if you bought silver on that same dip you
    would still have to time your exit to not make
    a loss(including all costs involved).
     
    silver is a demand driven market so it's more
    important to find a buyer for when you want to
    sell. gold is a supply driven market so it's more
    important to find a seller for when you want to
    buy.

    The biggest inroad so far is in Indonesia. There are millions of Indonesians working outside the country who send money home - $billions every year. At the moment the most popular arrangement is using MoneyGram or Western Union in conjunction with the post office. This is not cheap but it works. PT POS - the Indonesian post office is all on board with Kinesis. It works out better for the post office and works out better for workers. It is also a Sharia compliant method. The post office is the centre of finance for most people in Indonesia (265 million people). i have heard of the problems paying such as the electric bill - it can take quite a journey - time and expense. With Kinesis and PT POS it can be paid in seconds.
    We will see - in large parts of the world i don't see it being such a hard sell, especially in nations who want to see the back of the USD and US influence.

    Roy reacted to KDave in Pension age to be raised to 75   
    The reason the payment of pensions is not theft is because it is contributory based, the government attracted people into the tax paying work force by telling people if they work for x amount of years they are promised a weekly pension worth x amount in accordance to how many years of tax they had paid - it was a trade. But it was also reliant on future tax take to fund, nothing is saved or invested but the burden is reasonable - even now pensions are not the largest tax expense despite record numbers claiming I think its 12% of tax expenditure. Welfare is 25% for comparison, NHS is 19% - both non contributory. Interest on the national debt was the fifth largest expenditure last year - how about that for theft, the bloody interest on last years welfare and NHS spending.
    The welfare state is non contributory, that is where the theft is. It doesn't matter how much work you do, even if you do nothing at all and contribute nothing you can still pick up the full works; disability scooter, car, council house, weekly handouts - all on the back of someone else working and paying tax. We can't afford it, hence the debt and the interest, it is theft twice over.   
    If anything needs to be cut its the non-contributory state help first. We have charities for that in my view; the tax payer should not be seen as a charity. If the government takes money from me and my family to give to someone just landed in the asylum center, or someone who wants to retire at 16 and have kids, or someone who wants to hide 100K and claim out of work bennies until retirement age  - and then have the gall to tell me the pension is not there any more - that is theft and they have broken a contract with the people that keep this s**t show rolling on.
