You’ll Never Guess Where Snoop Dogg is Investing 25 Million Dollars…

For a man who has claimed to smoke 81 blunts per day, it’s about time Snoop put his money where his mouth is.

A few days ago, news surfaced that the celebrated rapper, noted pot smoker, and apparent venture capitalist Snoop Dogg is looking to raise $25 million for an investment fund devoted specifically to hi-tech cannabis startups.

Incredibly true. If there’s anything I’ve learned over the last few years, it’s to be completely selfless. I could’ve left what I was doing a long time ago and would be perfectly stable, but it isn’t about me. It’s about everyone else. The more value you put into others lives, the more valuable you come. When people start a journey with me, they aren’t left to dry. They aren’t forced to figure it out on their own. They aren’t forced to spend their time recruiting others and feeling unconfident while doing so. I have a formula for absolutely every single personality type to see success financially online. Whether my offer is taken or not is completely up to the individual. I’ve helped a lot of people over the past 2 years, and I don’t plan on stopping any time soon. 2015 is about to be a phenomenal year for the people who request it to be. It’s your choice. You decide your quality of life. Take a leap, get out of the comfort zone, and let’s make some damn money. #quotes #wealth #rich #money #mlm #income #invest #instagood #investment #trading #entrepreneur #wun #ypr #work #job #business #network #advice

page 163 - Once again the data does not lie. If S=1 then the current saving from households becomes new investment in firms. We can also see that consumer expenditure goes one way, along with employment, while income and final goods and services goes the other. Meanwhile, the feedback mechanism’s role is to open a rift in the earth from which none will escape.

That’s a key difference between the US and China in their approaches to Africa and elsewhere. The US likes to attach strings, the Chinese just want to do business. And that’s why China’s economic footprint in Africa dwarfs that of the US. Indeed, it surpassed the US as the continent’s largest trading partner in 2009.

Africa still offers promise to both superpowers, one waxing, one waning, as a region not yet fully developed but boasting many fast-growing economies. In their pursuit of economic gain, the US and China eye Africa as a fertile land of opportunity. As they race to establish economic control on the continent, it is important to carefully examine the strategies they’re employing.

While their economic goals are similar, their terms of engagement are diametrically opposed.

1:「そのお金」が、投資で半分になってもあなたの人生は変わらないですか?

投資に限らず、人生にはいろんなことが発生します。ご自身や親族、お子様の病気や、急な転勤、事故など、何年か、十何年かに一回ぐらい、何か発生するのが人生です。そのときに、重要で多額の現金が必要なのに、投資に回して損を出してしまったのでお金が使えない、そういう人は投資が出来る条件がありません。

学びながら投資をされる、これから頑張ろうという方は、いますぐ半分消えても大丈夫、生活の不安は無いというお金を準備しましょう。これらの「種銭」はあればあっただけ、良い投資に巡り合う確率を高めてくれるはずです。

2:「一日、2時間まで」など、自分の中で決めたことを守り通すことはできますか?

あなたの人生を思い返してみてください。様々な経験をされてくる中で、ご自身で「ああ、これはもうやめよう」と思ったことをそのまま守れましたか。または、お父様、お母様から、例えば「テレビは1時間ね」と言われて、1時間経ったら切り上げられましたか。

お金と向き合い、投資をするというのは、自分の欲望と折り合うことです。

もしも、禁煙やダイエットや、ご自身が「やらねば!」ということがあるのに、まだそれが達成できていないのであれば、まずは自分で作ったハードルを越えるテストをしてみましょう。自分で決めたルールが自分で守れることが分かったら、はじまりです。

Japan rivals China in East Africa investment

Japan has upped the competition with China in aiding East Africa’s development after signing a US$275 million loan to fund Kenya’s second phase of the Mombasa port expansion, reports our Chinese-language sister paper Want Daily.  

The US$275 million loan is part of a US$546 million contract aiming to move along the 2020 projected completion date for the second phase of the Mombasa port. Once accomplished, the harbor’s discharge capacity will increase two to threefold. The port is an important driving force for East Africa’s economic development.  

China has long been Kenya’s biggest provider of infrastructure construction contracts. The Chinese government had, prior to this Japanese loan, invested US$3.8 billion in building a railway to link Mombasa Port to the capital city of Nairobi.

China has also invested in building a harbor in Bagamoyo, a city in Tanzania, in order to compete with Mombasa Port. Both are situated in East Africa and would benefit from competition and collaboration.

Japan has been funneling a greater amount of funds to African countries in recent years, especially Kenya. The country has a comparatively stable economy, making it a hotbed of investment.
