I am not trying to be a prophet here, or maybe i am just stating the obvious.

For some, it's something rather common in today's context, for some, it might still takes some time to feel the real effect of G-Day. oh yeah, what's G-Day? well, it's just a name for the day when the world is fully globalised and fully integrated!

when you realise that the computer you're using was made in the country of oriental dragon, your mp3 player was made in the country of rising suns, the starbucks' latte you're sipping was neither from uncle sam's country nor eiffel's land, but from the local shop down the road with coffee beans from sumatra javaland, it shows that the G-effect has already filtered through our daily lifes.

i know, it's nothing special worth mentioning, that's normal isn't it? the global market is so open this days where you can drive a Beerland Car with a Rising Suns CD player plus a DownUnder wife, that's just so normal. however, this is not the G-day yet!

when the real G-day arrives, the only difference it makes will not be the "flushed with choices problems" you will be facing when shopping in the local supermarket, yet, what you will experience is the natural law of life.

Survival of the Fittest.

A total G-day will be a day where there's no more protectionism in each and every single countries. That will be a day where UncleSam's car selling like a local car in RisingSunsLand, vice versa. There will be a time where the nationalities of the goods will no longer be the determining factor in consumers' buying decision. The purchasing decision will then, solely relying on the Quality of the goods itself.

This is a day where economists such as keynes or adam smith been long for. Free Economy that is.

Let it be protectionism, let it be embargo, let it be tariffs, let it be social policy; by using the government as the protective shield will not achieve the mission of protecting the infants, but, creating an infant who refuse to grow!

Let say you papa or mama will always be taking the apple away from your brother whenever you cry. By doing so day in day out, what you would learn is to cry to get an apple. What you don't learn is that you would need to be strong, so that you could reach for the apple yourself, but, human natures, why bother trying when there's an easy way out?

As a result, you will continue to be the weakling, while your brother will continue to be the independent, unprotected one. For your bro to 'survive', he must learn to be stronger and to be smarter.

Once protectionism were taken away, only the fittest will survive. Negative for the protected infant, Positive for the unprotected, and huge positive for the world as a whole! The natural forces of market will then eliminate the inferior goods and retain the good one.

In layman term, we don't have to put up with the sh*tty goods or people anymore!

When the G-day is here, who will you be?

When it comes to creativity

Blogging is nothing new, nor it is something extraordinary. Yet, the impact it is making to this world is fabulous.

That leads to the talk of "globalisation".

The world hasn't changed its size, yet what we observe is that the distance between you and me, has become shorter. No matter where you are, as long as there's phone line and internet access, we are not that far apart after all.

"globalisation" makes things easier, it also leads to the disruption of the natural law of economics. there used to be an era when things got expensive, demands will fall and thus price will fall. Yet, in today's context, this seems to be abit obsolete. The emergence of the oriental dragon and the south asian mammoth have created a world with new economic rules. What suppose to be going up continue to stay low, and what suppose to be coming down, continue to be up and rising. What has gone wrong?

This should be exciting because this is a brand new era that we're observing. 200 years down the road, our great great grand children will be referring to this era as the "globalizing era" or perhaps some other more fascinating terms. This is similar to the time when the europeans learnt about sailing and start doing world trades. Now, we're doing world manufacturing, world marketing and of course, a global trades.

so, what happen when it comes to creativity? In today's context, it's hard to survive if we still follow the traditional way in doing things. Why would you be writing articles for local newspaper by paying 30cents postage fees while you can choose to post a blog on line / write an article for online magazine for zero costs and with unlimited exposure? now even you and i can be a columnist on line, even you and i and do business with merely zero cost by starting a e-business. Therefore with abit of creativity, we can spot the next opportunity in this ever-changing world and make a fortune out of it.

we're observing the globalizing trend in the world that we're living in today, yet the fortunate thing is that it has just begun and might take a century or more to complete the progress. The utopia of globalization is when we're only using one currency in trading, where the oriental dragon is the only one manufacturing, the south asian mammoth is answering all your phone enquiries, the pisa leaning tower and eiffels are making the food for the world & etc etc. so before everything converges, there arises the opportunity for us to exploit the arbitrage. This mean that you can do something with lower price, and sell it to other continents at a higher price, thus, reap the margins and help globalizing.

when it comes to creativity, it is time for us to spot what our competitive edge is, and be able to fully utilise it, before the G-Day arrived.

Happy reading and will be back for more.
