Bitcoin - too good to be true and too bad to be allowed

   If you invest in any of the currencies of African countries, you will take a great risk of high losses. Anyway African currencies are absolutely legal and you can buy and sell them as much as you want. At the same time the leading central banks of the world one by one are starting fierce attacks on the Bitcoin. Why Bitcoin is bad and too risky for customers, while Zimbabwean dollar is absolutely legal to buy, along with the shares of Facebook that are highly overvalued? Why you can risk with thousands of assets on Wall Street or Nasdaq, but you cannot buy and sell Bitcoins? Why government “protection” is needed with Bitcoin and not needed with obvious market bubbles that almost sure will burst one day and bring enormous losses?


The impossible ReaganOil strategy on Russia

   Much idle talks appear these days as a part of verbal counter measures of West countries against Russian advance in Ukraine. The most attractive of all ideas is crushing Russia by lowering the prices of oil, gas and natural resources. Some analysts even remind the experience of Ronald Reagan’s policy to press USSR by dumping the oil price to $9 per barrel. But it is neither a Reagan time, nor exists any candidate of becoming Reagan-2. In fact the politician that is most close to Reagan now is… Vladimir Putin.


The West is preparing a new gift for Putin

   While the world is trying to blame Putin with all possible sins, somewhere hidden in the backyard remain the important problems of Ukraine. That is on the way of becoming a country dissolved due to bankruptcy.


Why Russia is strong and The West is weak?

    These days Russia looks very strong and victorious, and the led by USA West looks weak and even funny. But the truth is some different. Russia really has some advantage, but not in general power. It has advantage in the trend. Russia goes up, the West goes down. The Ukraine victory of Putin is a consequence of these contrary evolutions of the two sides. It is like a first victory of the new rising power against the old – that is waning.


Does Putin have other choice?

     The Crimea crisis is may be the first brutal visible result of the decomposition of the Western society. We are seeing a strong leader occupying part of neighbor country, and in exchange receiving much talking and some funny sanctions, excluding the leader himself and the highest ranking officers of his government.
     In fact the West can do nothing. The West first has lost the political battle, after pro-Russian parties have won presidential and parliamentary elections in Ukraine. After that the West has lost the economic battle by offering Ukraine only 1 billion euros ($1,4 billion) for a period of 7 years. At the same time Putin offered $15 billion almost immediately. And at the end the West has lost the military stage by just sitting and looking how Russian loyalists occupied Crimea and requested joining to Russia.
