[Jester] HI YA MODS, PEEPS, LURKERS, AND CRITTERS...
[Jester] SOOOO... IS EVERYONE STARTING TO BELIEVE NOW... THE PUZZLE PIECES ARE FALLING INTO PLACE ALL OVER... EVEN THE NAYSAYERS ARE HAVING TO ADMIT IT...
[jbmeans] Jester never doubted you
[Hoosier Girl] Jester Frank is starting to talk like he listens to you! Hahahaha
[hoot2602] Jester Yes, it has become most interesting!
[Jester] SOME ARE STILL IGNORING IT AND TALKING ALL IRAQ... ALL THIS SECURITY STUFF IS SORT OF SILLY.... WE JUST HAD A LARGE PERCENTAGE OF THE GOVERNMENT OVER THERE AND DIDN'T SEEM TO BE WORRIED ABOUT IT...
[Jester] SO THE AIIB CONTINUES TO GATHER FRIENDS....
[Jester] Taiwan, Norway seek to join China-backed AIIB, Japan still cautious
[Jester] (Reuters) - Japan remains cautious about signing up to the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), indicating that Tokyo will miss the March 31 deadline for application, but both Taiwan and Norway said they would seek to join the institution.
[Jester] Finance Minister Taro Aso reiterated Japan's concerns about governance at the AIIB, its debt sustainability and environmental and social safeguards.
[Jester] "Unless these conditions are secured, Japan has no choice but to be very cautious about joining," Aso told reporters after a cabinet meeting.
[Jester] I THINK O WROTE THAT FOR HIM....
[Jester] HERE IS A BIGGIE....
[Jester] Taiwan sought to join the proposed development bank despite historical animosity and a lack of formal diplomatic relations between the island and China.
[Jester] In a statement released late on Monday, Taiwan presidential office spokesman Charles Chen said joining the AIIB will help Taiwan in its efforts at regional economic integration and raise the possibility of joining other multinational bodies.
[Jester] It was not immediately known whether Beijing would accept Taiwan's application to join the AIIB.
[Jester] Asked about Taiwan's application, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said: "Our principle has not changed, and that is that it will be an open, inclusive and multilateral organization which we welcome all sides to join.
[Jester] GUESS THAT ANSWERS THAT QUESTION....
[Jester] "But for Taiwan's application to join, it should abide by the relevant principles, which is to avoid the problem appearing of 'two Chinas' or 'one China, one Taiwan'."
[Jester] Most countries, including the United States, do not recognize Taiwan due to pressure from China. Taiwan is not a member of the United Nations, the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund.
[Jester] HMMMM... INTERESTING THEY WILL TAKE THE APPLICATION.... LOOKS LIKE IT WILL ALL WORK OUT...
[Jester] The AIIB is seen as a significant setback to U.S. efforts to extend its influence in the Asia-Pacific region and balance China's growing financial clout and assertiveness.
[Jester] China has set a March 31 deadline to become a founding member of the AIIB and over 40 nations have joined or said they intend to, adding clout to an institution seen as enhancing Beijing's regional and global influence.
[Jester] Norway also said it wanted to join as a prospective founder member.
[Jester] "Norway is a substantial contributor to global development efforts, and wishes to join countries from Asia and other parts of the world in further refining the structure and mission of the AIIB," Foreign Minister Boerge Brende said in a statement on a government website.
[Jester] ONE MORE...
[Jester] China's finance ministry said that Kyrgyzstan had applied to become a member too.
[Jester] Japan and the United States are the two notable absentees.
[Jester] The AIIB is seen as a challenge to the World Bank and Asian Development Bank and has drawn a cool response from the United States, although many of Washington's allies, including Australia, South Korea, Britain, France, Germany and Italy, have announced they would join the bank.

[Jester] Hoosier Girl THEY INDICATED THEY MAY JOIN DOWN THE ROAD A BIT...
[RoseRedTyler] Jester sometime in June or so
[Jester] NOW.... THIS IS FROM YESTERDAY AND I AM PROVIDING THIS TO PROVOKE THOUGHT PROCESS...
[Jester] US treasury secretary in China on eve of Asia bank deadline
[Jester] The stated goal of Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s trip to China today is to discuss technology policy. Washington has, after all, complained that proposed Chinese anti-terrorism laws, which would require encryption keys be handed over to the Beijing government, are an undue burden and an opening for government-sponsored corporate espionage, and thus represent a threat to international trade.
[eagle1777] Jester sounds like a cover story
[Jester] HMMM... HOLD THAT THOUGHT... THAT IS THE STATED GOAL... THERE WERE ACTUALLY TWO MEETINGS.... WONDER WHAT THE OTHER ONE WAS ABOUT....
[Jester] But those laws are just drafts, and they’ve been on the table for a while now. Lew’s trip, according to reports, was hastily arranged and falls, it turns out, just one day before the deadline for countries to join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), and just days after South Korea joined most other Asian nations and many European powers in signing on to the bank. In fact, of the countries considered U.S. allies, the only major economies that have yet to join the AIIB are Canada and Japan.
[Hoosier Girl] Jester Hummm
[eagle1777] Jester maybe last minute change of heart. maybe the republic joined
[Jester] BACK TO THAT IN A SEC TOO...
[Jester] But the AIIB is also seen as the further devolution of the U.S.-centric economic order organized under the Bretton Woods agreement in 1944, and an attempt by China to work its soft power in the face of growing dissatisfaction and distrust of western-led lending institutions, namely, the World Bank and International Monetary Fund.
[Jester] Earlier this month, Lew warned Congress “new players were challenging U.S. leadership in the multilateral system,” adding, in his prepared testimony, that U.S. “credibility and influence are being threatened.”
[Jester] BLAH BLAH BLAH... SAME OLE SAME OLE.... SKIPPING DOWN....
[Hoosier Girl] Hahahaha
[Jester] “The timing of Secretary Lew’s visit to coincide with the deadline for countries applying for founding membership of the AIIB may signal that the US has decided to join,” said Tim Condon, chief economist and head of Research at ING Asia, to the South China Morning Post.
[Jester] And the deficit-hawking marketeers at the Peterson Institute for International Economics said the “United States should bless” its allies who have joined the AIIB, and should jump on board, too, to counterbalance Chinese influence, according to a column posted in the Financial Times. Not that Peterson’s C. Fred Bergsten, who penned that Op-Ed, thinks there is all that much to worry about. "Because the Chinese have been suspect on these issues, they will lean over backwards to follow international best practices," said Bergsten to Marketplace. "My guess is, they’re going to be holier than the Pope."
[Jester] Given the current pontiff’s positions on the evils of the capitalist system, maybe not. But potentially more influential than the austerity-obsessed existing order? Perhaps.
[Jester] GO POPE...

[Jester] BUT IT IS WORTH A MENTION... SINCE THEY CANNOT COME OUT AND SAY IT AND MAKE O LOOK BAD...
[Jester] US backs China-led AIIB ahead of joining deadline
[Jester] BEIJING: The US today hinted at joining the China-sponsored Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) before the deadline tomorrow saying it is looking forward to cooperating with the new bank which most US allies have joined disregarding its objections.
[Jmk47] Jester',,,,,,,,,,,any truth to Iraq needing to open their budget before 1 st to retro back pay to jan1
[Jester] US can cooperate with the bank as it welcomes and supports proposals that are helpful to infrastructure construction, US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said.
[Jester] Lew is here for talks with Chinese officials. The cooperation can be carried out through the China-US Strategic and Economic Dialogue (SED), the World Bank and the AIIB, and any other mechanisms accepted by the two countries, Lew said in his talks with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang earlier on, Chinese Vice Minister of Finance Zhu Guangyao quoted him as saying.
[Jester] Lew's "surprise" visit here ahead of the last date for joining the bank has sparked speculation that the US is negotiating with China to join the bank which it opposed earlier stating that it lacked transparency.
[Jester] SHEESH.... THAT IS THE DANG POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK IN MY OPINION....
[Jester] Already India, along with 30 countries including staunch US allies UK, Germany and France have joined the bank making the Barack Obama administration rethink its concerns that it could become a competitor to the US-led World Bank, IMF and ADB, as it is set to start with USD 50 billion investment.
[jbmeans] Jester Exactly
[Hoosier Girl] Jester True
[Jester] Zhu told state-run Xinhua news agency after the hour-long talks that Lew also welcomes China playing a bigger role in international economic affairs.
[Jester] SO LOTS OF SPECULATION THAT THE US WOULD JOIN... AND GOOD SOURCES SAYING THEY DID...
[Jester] WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE...
[nano59] almost ready to sing kum ba yah???
.[pokerbrat] Jester all signs look good will Lew need special protection?
[Hoosier Girl] pokerbrat Im sure he already has it!!
[chuck60] Jester One of the reasons, IMHO, that they very well could have joined, is I just don't see them joining later as a "regular" member, as opposed to joining now as a "founding" member. Can't see US taking a "lesser seat" than these other countries. My humble opinion only.
[LdyFaith] Jester,,,"they" meaning the Republic ,, and not the Corporation, ,, it seems hopeful
[Jester] LdyFaith YOU CANNOT HAVE TWO GOVERNMENT OVER ONE COUNTRY AT ONCE...
