    Here’s another headline of interest. The headline is: “BRICS summit to green-light ‘mini IMF’ and development bank.” This is from The Voice of Russia. The first paragraph is: “For decades the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank have been regarded as tools used by Washington for advancing its interests. After several failed attempts to wrestle the control of the IMF from the US, developing nations are now trying to establish their own alternative ‘mini IMF’. A BRICS-sponsored fund will significantly alter the global financial landscape.” The link is: http://voiceofrussia.com/2014_07_10/BRICS-summit-to-green-light-a-mini-IMF-and-a-development-bank-8163/. If this interests you, you may want to peruse this article. It’s rather interesting to me, anyway.

      Important and thanks. . . I think around the time when the BRICS sign on the dotted line, we may begin to see some serious change. . . Hugs, ~Jean

    No game changers here. Just more death, inequality, pollution, profiteering, and business/financial/political corruption and positioning. I wonder what will happen when the sun rises and sets tomorrow.
