Import Export Start-up Boot Camp San Francisco December 5, 2015

Hong Kong has one allowed gambling event, horse-racing and the profits feed charity.  So when an article talks about Hong Kong's "pole position" it is from horse racing and means best placed to do something.  China plans to develop the Eurasian land-mass economy, a process abbreviated as the "belt and road" initiative, after the main trade routes anticipated.  

Here is what top Hong Kong people have to say:
Opening new markets would deliver opportunities to Hong Kong’s next generation of entrepreneurs and SMEs, who would use their initiative to create opportunities, said Victor Fung, Chairman of the Fung Group.
“That [the Belt and Road Initiative] is going to generate our next generation of SMEs. That is what’s going to deliver the next generation of forward movement and thrust for Hong Kong,” said Mr Fung.
Hong Kong is a trade center.  It makes almost nothing and has no resources.  But with 30% of business visas to USA denied (people trying to visit USA to buy or sell) Hong Kong denies nearly zero (if a visa is even required.)  If you want to sell to say France, Hong Kong is not a bad place to visit.  If you want to sell to France, Chile, Montenegro, and Mali, Hong Kong is the best place to visit.

If you need to grow export sales for food, either as a producer (principal) or an agent of producers, please join the others who will be attending an all-day food export seminar in San Francisco, Saturday, December 5, 2015, from 9am to 5pm.  Don't waste time and money blindly searching, go straight at buyers with what they need.  You'll learn the tools, tactics and attitude.

If you are in the Bay Area these seminars offer boot-camp start-up experience and time to get specific questions answered.  If you are not in the Bay Area, this is the one for which you should fly in.

You'll learn to identify markets and sources, and everything in between.  If you plan to start up a business, or need to expand your business internationally, this seminar is unique for its tactics and attitude.  It is highly rated for content, pace and humor by the participants.

Bring a laptop, we'll be taking actions in the classroom to advance your business (wifi provided.)   There is plenty of follow-up consultation with the instructor.  You leave with tools, tactic and attitude, and special info on Hong Kong, you'll find no where else.

Register now to secure your place in the class.  This one actually has Berkeley credit associated with the course, .8 of a CEU, which means if you are pursuing a degree the seminar goes on your transcript, if you want that too, and your employer is likely to cover the cost in your company education benefit program.

Email me if you have any questions.

Feel free to forward this by email to three of your friends.

What is your opinion on the R3 consortium. Can you write a post on that please!

Well, like I've always said...

Financial Times reporter Kadhim Shubber wrote that the new additions are "a sign the industry is gathering behind R3 in one potential implementation of the distributed ledger technology behind the currency bitcoin."[10]

Bitcoin is a tally (ledger).

What currency is not a tally? I cannot think of any currency that has any worth kn itself. The point of tallies is to keep score who owns what commodities.
As far as I understand with Bitcoin it is imoossible to tanper with it. It had no central authority that can produce is. 21,000 is the most number of bitcoins there will ever be. To me that sounds an awful lot like gold. It almost sounds too good to be true. What an I missing?

It is a tally but I am kot sure I understand why that sould be an issue. The point is to keep track of who owns what commodities. If se all agree that its a good medium of exchange then it can be traded for any good.

Yes, currencies are tallies too, but currencies putatively represent money. So the better question is what currency does not represent money. Since about 1960, the US dollar no longer represented money, when we got rid of silver certs, gold certs, etc as currency. The currency is supposed to represent only the commodity backing it, gold and silver in the USA case.

Tallies also keep track of debt, which is not money, and not just who owns what commodities, but it can be extinguished by money, or not.

Bitcoin does have a central authority, they that created it, it has already be tampered with repeatedly, digital tallies are in no way like gold, so what may be missing is a bit of scepticism of claims....

AS to bitcoin being a tally, calling it that use to cause controversy, I guess not anymore. Pyramid schemes work "if we all agree it is good..." but with bitcoin we do not. I don't think we ever will.

Banks are looking at bitcoin technology as a ledger system, which may be fine, but they certainly are not looking at it as currency, which is what it is hyped to be.

In what way is gold less of a tally? It is a commodity but what practical use does it have. Its a piece of metal after all. There is no absolute or universal value as far as I see it. I just want a medium of exchange, that is all, that isnt controller by a central authority. Is that too much to ask for?
