Miss Universe walking on stage with just a g-string attached…well, that’s the hottest news I saw on internet today..other than another terrorist threat in Russia that is terrorist take hostage of the very innocent of people : kids…hah!
Anyway, one thing occured to me : Indonesia’s poor fate has been decided once Soeharto changed Indonesia’s way of developing from self-resource based, cooperation supported to loan based, investment supported growth. This had deviated Indonesia’s people from their agricultural, self-dependant culture to Industrial, industry dependant culture. Instead of developing in farm-consumption-mill-factory growth, Soeharto had changed it to money-factory-product-consumption growth, favoring foreign investor and reducing native workforce to just numbers. He even establish himself as some kind of king, ruling in the same way ancient javanese kings rule : Nothing is given to you unless you obey me…in short : Monarchy disguised in false Democracy. He called it : A way to stabilization.
So, foreign investments added with one order policy created trickling down policy : investment make industry, industry attract worker, industry create market, industry increase consumption.
The worst case has come : Corruption. Money that comes from top is not coming to bottom in full amount, thus increasing the gap of people close to monarch to people work under foreign investment regime.
Aah…I hope Indonesia’s new president realized that foreign investment must be slowed down, and tried to establish Cooperation Based Growth, cause it is the best way to strengthen grass root people’s independent in economy and politic, and thus in the end increase Indonesia’s economy from within, not supported by foreigner like Indonesia has been experiencing…
Hey, o10 people died in the Russia Hostage Tragedy…and it’s over now..well, one sour moment of the world ended…let’s hope other sour moments stop soon..
