Spillover Effect: Definition

[Econ] Making the Best of a Very Bad Thing

November 2030
Well, uh, this sucks. Just a few short months after the Arab States of the Gulf finally unified, the world economy decided to explode. This is what we in the business of economics call a very bad thing.
The effects across the FAS have been relatively disparate. The United Arab Emirates, easily the most diversified economy in the region, has been the least heavily impacted (though it's still bad). Diversification programs in Oman and Bahrain have also helped to stave off some of the worst impacts of the crisis, though they haven't been as successful in avoiding the effects as the UAE. Qatar and Kuwait, still almost entirely reliant on hydrocarbon exports, are not happy with this turn of events. Falling global oil prices, though propped up a little by a sudden increase in demand from China, have left their economies struggling much more than the rest of the country, and in desperate need of assistance from the better off parts of the country.
One major pain point in this crisis has been the FAS's economic ties to the United States. While most of the FAS's trade is with Asia, Africa, and Europe, the US financial system still plays a crucial role in the FAS. The stability of the US Dollar has long been used to protect the economies of the Gulf using their vast Forex reserves (earned from oil sales) to peg their currency to the US Dollar. With the US Dollar in complete collapse, the value of the Khaleeji is plummeting right along with it, causing a significant degree of harm to the FAS's economy.
To help offset this harm (and to decouple the FAS's economy from a country that the FAS is starting to view as maybe not the most reliable economic partner), the Central Bank in Dubai has announced that the Khaleeji will switch its peg from the US Dollar to a basket of foreign currencies (the Euro, the Pound Sterling, the Swiss Franc, the US Dollar, and the Japanese Yen). The FAS hopes that this will help to salvage the Khaleeji's value, better protecting the economy from the collapse of the dollar-based international financial system. Rumor has it that the Central Bank is discussing the idea of unpegging the Khaleeji entirely and allowing it to float freely, but so far, the Central Bank has made no moves towards floating the Khaleeji.
Crises suck. They shatter the status quo and throw established norms and procedures into chaos. No one really wins during a crisis.
But in another sense, they're a double-edged sword. The status quo is often a repressive entity, reinforcing existing hierarchies and preventing dramatic shifts in the order of things. Chaos breaks that apart, giving the ingenuitive and the entrepreneurial on opportunity to better their lot in ways they otherwise could not.
Put differently: chaos is a ladder, and the FAS intends to be the one climbing it. As the largest economy in the Arab World (and one of the world's 20 largest economies) by both nominal GDP and GDP per capita (by a significant margin--it's probably either Saudi Arabia or Egypt in second place in nominal GDP, and definitely Saudi Arabia in second place in GDP per capita, but the FAS more than doubles the country in second place in both categories, so it's sort of a moot point), the FAS hopes to cement its place as the regional economic power.
The FAS has announced a new slate of policies intended to attract rich investors, manufacturing firms, and financiers fleeing the new nationalization program of the United States. New free trade zones have been created throughout the country--especially in the struggling, undiversified regions of Kuwait and Qatar--with the goal of convincing fleeing American manufacturers to set up shop in these areas. Attractions include wildly low tax rates (as low as zero percent in some instances), a common law framework (as opposed to the Sharia-based legal system in most of the FAS), highly subsidized land prices (sometimes free), relaxed financial restrictions (making it easier to move money in and out of the FTZ), and, for large enough firms moving enough operations into the country, preferential visa treatment (making it easier for them to relocate foreign employees into the country). Sitting at one of the major crossroads of global trade, moving operations to the FAS offers easy access to both the world's established consumer markets (like the EU and East Asia) as well as to some of its largest growing markets (South and Southeast Asia, East Africa, and MENA). Pair this with wildly high standards of living (for people who aren't slaves Asian or African migrant workers) and established expatriate communities, and the FAS becomes an incredibly attractive option for American and other foreign firms looking to relocate.
In addition to manufacturing-oriented FTZs, special attention has been paid to attracting service-oriented firms to new and existing FTZs in the vein of Dubai Internet City, Dubai Design District, Dubai Knowledge Park, and Dubai Media City, with the goal of developing a robust service economy that can capture growing markets in the MENA, South Asia, and East African regions. In advertising these zones, the governments of the FAS have highlighted the success of previous ventures in Dubai, which have attracted the regional headquarters of giants like Facebook, Intel, LinkedIn, Google, Dell, Samsung, Microsoft, IBM, Tata Consultancy, and more.
Perhaps one of the most substantial pushes, though, is to attract American financial services and FinTech firms to base in the FAS (particularly Dubai, Kuwait City, Doha, and Abu Dhabi, the traditional centers of regional finance). New financial industry free trade zones have been set up in the four cities, structured in the vein of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). These financial FTZs boast an independent and internationally regulated regulatory and judicial system, a common law framework, and extremely low taxation rates. All government services in these regions are available in English (the lingua franca of international finance), and in events where ambiguity exists in the legal and regulatory systems, the systems are set to default to English Common Law (except for the Kuwait City International Financial Centre, which is hoping to better tailor itself towards American financial firms by defaulting to American Civil Law from pre-2020 rather than English Common Law). Much like in the DIFC, these new FTZs will also run their own courts, staffed in large part by top judicial talent from Common Law (or in the case of Kuwait City, American Civil Law) jurisdictions like Singapore, England, and (formerly) Hong Kong. Using these FTZ, the four cities hope to raise their profile as financial centers. Dubai in particular is hoping to break into the top ten global financial centers--and it stands a good chance of doing so, too, as it sits at number 12, just behind cities like LA, SF, and Shenzhen--while the other cities are just hoping to boost their profile into the 20s or 10s (according to Long Finance, Dubai is number 12 in the world and 1 in the region, Abu Dhabi is number 39 in the world and two in the region, Doha is number 48 in the world, and Kuwait City is number 91).

Google to Ban Binary Options Ads

Google is ready to ban binary option and cryptocurrency ads

Well, it’s about time, Google is next in line to pose a stiff challenge to the largely fraudulent online trading industry. The world’s largest search engine has just announced that it plans to ban all cryptocurrencies and binary options advertisements, and it is cracking down on ads for various other speculative financial products.

Say goodbye to binary options & cryptocurrency ads

The new rules, which are scheduled to take effect in June, will flat out ban adverts for binary options, cryptocurrencies and all related content (including initial coin offerings, cryptocurrency exchanges, cryptocurrency wallets, and cryptocurrency trading advice. Cryptocurrencies have surged in popularity over the last year thanks to a boom in the price of bitcoin towards the end of fiscal 2017. This coincided with a surge in initial coin offerings (ICOs), where numerous startups have issued their own cryptocurrency in exchange for money to construct their businesses.

Taking Facebook’s lead

Google’s hard-line approach follows a similar ban that Facebook enacted earlier in the year in banning cryptocurrency related advertising on its platform. Scott Spencer, Google’s Director of Sustainable Ads said in a recent blog post that the clampdown is part of Google’s efforts to shield consumers from online trading scams.
However, much of the online trading world is unregulated, which in turn has attracted scammers looking to make quick money. Last year myriads of “pump and dump” filled the market, while this year bogus ICO projects have become routine.

Forex & CFD Crackdown

Google is additionally coming down on ads for contracts for difference (CFD), spread betting, and foreign exchange (forex) instruments on its platform.
These products carry a high level of risk and the entire industry is under increasing regulatory scrutiny across Europe over the past year thanks to severe investment fraud sweeping through the continent. The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) issued a warning in November that cryptocurrency CFDs are incredibly high-risk, speculative products that risk the investor suffering significant losses. Research conducted by the FCA showed 82% of people who use the products lose money, implying CFDs are more similar to gambling than investing.

Affiliate marketing for online trading takes a hit

Google additionally announced it is banning ads from affiliates and aggregators who traffic leads to online trading brokers. These websites earn a commission for referring new clients to these products that are lightly regulated.
The search giant will require CFD, spread bet, and forex websites to register with it if they want to advertise on its platform and all brokers must be licensed in the country they are looking to advertise in.

Pressure getting to Google

Google’s financial marketing crackdown arises among continued pressure on the search giant, which additionally owns YouTube, regarding the way it runs its advertising procedure. Google has been heavily criticized by the media and politicians for permitting everything from radicalization to binary options trading on its advertising platform due to careless controlling of content and advertising.
Spencer did state in his blog post that Google removed 3.2 billion “bad” ads last year and announced, “Improving the ads experience across the web, whether that’s removing harmful ads or intrusive ads, will continue to be a top priority for us.” We shall see. However, there is a pretty good chance that these fraudulent brokers will just simply change the name of their product in order to get around Google’s ban and deceive an unsuspecting user.

What you can do

If you are the victim of an HBC Broker scam be sure to send your complaint to [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]), and we will do our very best to get into contact with you as soon as we can to initiate your funds recovery process.

On AIR: Hacken Answers the Questions in Regards to Marketing Activities

On AIR: Hacken Answers the Questions in Regards to Marketing Activities
As a part of the answers to the Q&A launched by Hacken, we are delighted to share our vision on Marketing Activities.
Marketing, as well as product development, is one of the Key activities. Based on the questions we received from the Community we created 3 Marketing Blocks: Community Building, Market making, and Customer Management. Below we are telling about each of them in details.

COMMUNITY BUILDING

KEY PRINCIPLES:
The main principles come from Hacken’s mission - to make the crypto space mature, secure, and transparent. Undoubtedly, to achieve it, we need the assistance of the crowd, who are the market participants.
As a result, our fundamental principles are grounded in the incentives for people to support our mission:
1) Influence
Each HKN token holder will be able to participate in the voting process to select the future development directions of the company. The voting power will be determined by the percentage of tokens held by a person.
2) Fair Rewarding
Each HKN token holder will be justly rewarded for his/her contribution to the functionality of our blockchain network (being nodes and master nodes) and to the development of our business (paying active & loyal community members tokens, merch, tickets, etc.).
3) Facilitation
Hacken will guide and support community members who are willing to contribute to Hacken’s mission either with us or independently. The support includes the following areas: business development, marketing, cybersecurity, R&D and so forth.
F.e. you can conduct an investigation similar to CER’s research on BitForex. Our team will review the work and give recommendations regarding the ways to improve it if needed. Then, Hacken will deliver the results to the community to ensure the highest coverage of the investigation.
Therefore, our community structure and principles are designed to achieve visibility, inclusiveness, transparency, flexibility, and efficiency. We believe that this approach will significantly foster the achievement of Hacken’s mission and the overall progress within the industry:
The more we contribute, the more we have. Together, we will make a difference!
SMART OBJECTIVES:
S - Specific
Develop a worldwide network of local community members — people who will do their best to help Hacken reach the common goal and achieve marketing and business development success. The key factor is fostering the ideology of “family,” “common goal”, and “mutual benefit.”Credo: The more each of us contributes, the more we have! This thinking concerns a secure crypto space, fair exchanges, lack of scams, higher demand for Hacken, and cybersecurity services.
M - Measurable
The goal will be evaluated by local community branches in 5 locations: the US, Japan, Korea, Europe, Turkey. Active community members in each region will also assist with the implementation: short-term goal — 500, middle — 1000, aggressive — 1500.
A - Achievable
We already have loyal supporters who voluntary promote Hacken and find new dev opportunities for the company.We believe that if we create a more comprehensive management structure (working process and processing of inbound requests), content marketing (adaptation and distribution of content) and motivation system (encouragement according to levels), we will succeed in community management and marketing.
R - Relevant
The cooperation between Hacken and well-established blockchain companies like Vechain, SONM, SingularityX etc. has proved that the presence of active and involved community members positively affects marketing performance, capitalization of a coin, trading volume, and volatility.
T - Time
The deadline for the implementation of the project — 3 months.
CURRENT COMMUNITY DESIGN
As for now, we have a next outline describing the Community structure and processes.
Community Organizational Structure
Content Outbound Distribution
Inbound Request Operating

MARKET MAKING

SHORT TERMS VOLUME/PRICE INCREASING
Hacken gained significant experience and knowledge about exchanges and exchange rate fluctuations while conducting marketing activities.
Thus, we concluded that:
Direct stimulation of the bidding and courses (an activity illegal in traditional fond markets) doesn’t guarantee a long-term effect and, moreover, can be harmful;
The number of active exchange members and listing standards is the main criteria for a token that plans to be listed;
Expanding community support via social media accounts of an exchange, accounts of partners or other media communities brings the organic growth of trades and prices;
Inter-exchange and inter-arbitrage can bring a healthy and organic pump required shortly after the start of trading.
Logical consequences:
The continuous community growth and effective communication with users are the essential parameters for Hacken and key performance metrics on our way to volume/price increase.
Listing on a new exchange. Currently, we are about to start the Token Protocol Migration and listing on new exchanges, which may have a significant marketing effect, especially for selling HKN tokens before and after Protocol Migration.
The increase of client base, continuous community growth and effective communication with the HKN community members are the essential parameters for Hacken and key performance metrics on our way to volume/price increase.
HKN EXCHANGER OPERATING
At the end of the spring, we realized that it was difficult for our clients to purchase the token because they had to register on a different exchange to buy HKNs.
The most efficient way to resolve this issue was to create an automatic exchanger.
Hacken Exchanger, a tool that allows one-way transactions to buy HKNs, was developed by our partners Paytomat to facilitate the process of buying HKN tokens for our clients from hub.hacken.io and hackenproof.com. One can find Hacken Exchanger on top of the main tab of our website - https://hacken.io/
Subsequently, we plan to upgrade it: tokens will be automatically bought from an exchange in order to replenish its reserve.
CER MONETIZATION STRATEGIES
Currently, CER is free of charge, but some of the most useful blocks will be available under paid subscription after October 1, 2018.
We plan to offer three different ways to get access to the platform:
  • Paid subscription for individual investors and enterprises
  • Free availability to those holding a sufficiently high amount of HKNs
  • Including a crypto exchange to CER scoring boards

CUSTOMER MANAGEMENT

EXISTING CUSTOMERS AND CONCLUSIONS
Our customers are blockchain and IT companies.
We provide a full range of cybersecurity services: anti-phishing protection, smart contract audit, and penetration testing. Most of our clients stay with us: once they order a service from Hacken, they appreciate the quality of our work and purchase other services.Furthermore, we continuously expand and improve the services we offer to meet the growing demand. For example, we've just released an anti-phishing bot, which will help our customers automatically identify and remove fake accounts in Telegram groups.Additionally, we expect to expand our client base by establishing close ties with existing clients and encouraging them to recommend our services to other companies.
Cybersecurity Service Business Modeling
CYBERSECURITY MARKET
The cybersecurity market will grow by 12-15 percent until 2021.
According to the “Deltek’s Federal Information Security Market Report,” the demand for cybersecurity services by the US federal government will increase up to $11 billion by 2020. More and more federal agencies increase the cybersecurity spending share of their budgets; Deltek expects that by 2020 the average share of cybersecurity spending within an IT budget will exceed 10 percent.
WHY HKN?
We will do our best to bring these budgets to HKN Capitalization.

[uncensored-r/CryptoCurrency] "Omisego is a project on a totally different level"

The following post by divine_blood2 is being replicated because some comments within the post(but not the post itself) have been openly removed.
The original post can be found(in censored form) at this link:
np.reddit.com/ CryptoCurrency/comments/7pc2vs
The original post's content was as follows:
I was going crazy trying to avoid discussing omg because I think purely in moontalk. Then I see posts in ethtrader talking about eth going to $1T cap in a few months, and everyone nods in agreement.
https://np.reddit.com/ethtradecomments/7p6rl8/eth_price_has_just_entered_the_bottom_of_a_new/dsez5vd/
You can't talk price in omg sub other than the daily. However, mentioning omg hitting $1k-$2k each or much higher before end of year in the omg daily, you get "FUCK OFF MOONBOIS!" "GET REAL OMGCUCK!" "SPECULATIVE MOONTALK WILL ONLY HARM OMG!" So I had refrained myself. Until now. That eth comment infected me.
Why can't we have staking fees that generate $50-100 per omg? This would make omg yearly staking yield at 1:20 ratio, a ratio comparable to something like kucoin shares and yield. Kucoin pay 0.001 of exchange volume fees towards their hodler, currently about 0.0028 per token base on 280mil daily volume and growing. $1.022 annual.
Omg will be a platform, decentralized exchange, staking coin and more; it has the potential to do far more than a small exchange like kucoin. It is social good that will solve real-world problems of financial services, credit systems, cash in/out gateways, unit of accountings trade. As a platform, it will grow beyond what it was intended. Amazon started as online bookseller and grew into aws and cloud services, publisher, retailer, product development, streaming services, logistics and distribution, warehousing, etc. Google expanded from a search engine to chromebook, gmail, youtube, web analytics, advertising, google map and earth, etc.
The primary utility for omg as a proof-of-stake, is needed for public, permissionless decentralizatiion security to protect against double-spend and other attacks. Proof-of-stake is a security consensus model that has clear costs and incentives. Researchers spent decades working on digital currencies, and finally the effective solution was created by Satoshi through proof-of-work mining, of which proof-of-stake was derived without the need for intensive mining equipment. Compared to fee-less and nonmining/no-reward crypto, which has unclear economic consensus model, even if they include proof-of-work because it has no associated costs to attackers; the value of the coin itself is not necessarily enough for a compelling economic incentive, especially for those exiting; time will determine how secure or vulnerable they are.
99% of crypto is shitcoin, we all know this; everyone trying to pump everyone else to buy into the mania frenzy and dumping (aside, most people should not put more than 10% of their networth into crypto; crypto is very risky). Omg is the 1% that will survive a meltdown and actually has gods working on and supporting it:
Omg will launch on tendermint with a roadmap to implement plasma. The chain is expected to go live on 2nd 2018 but we could see it as early as end of February. Thousands of merchants, including all of Mcdonalds Thailand, will be shifted to the omgchain. Omg's potential target market is an ambitious billions of smartphone users. There's speculation that omg is going after part of the forex market which does $5 trillion in volume per day. Omise CeO, Jun's medium article lays out what problems they are trying to solve (limited crypto accessibility; closed networks that can't or find it difficult to financially transact with each other; etc) and envisions how omgchain will be used: https://medium.com/@jun_omise/omise-omisego-strategy-vol-01-5c7269bb2008.
Jun is also telling people directly what's up: We are going to deliver a big win for whole crypto community in 2018. Watch #OMG and HODL!
https://twitter.com/jun_omise/status/945239429693632513?lang=en
2018 will be the year of crypto. We will see the real deal; omg will be one of the kings and queens. Metaphorically, perhaps owning omg would be akin to being able to own a part of the internet, where omgchain becomes de facto decentralized chain for the world. If this is the situation, within several years' time, we can very well surpass a ridiculous utra mega-cap beyond imagining.

It's Not Just About Avoiding Porn And Posting Memes!

Hey Guys, just wanted to say a massive well done to everyone in this community whether you're on Day 0 or Day 365+. Being here and reading this post at this very moment means that you have taken a decision to improve your life. If nobody else has said this to you, I'm proud of you, well done.
One thing I've failed to see in the midst of all the posts about relapses, porn, urges, trannies, NoFap, monk mode, Gary Wilson and the list goes on, is actual self development. Which is exactly what NoFap and porn addiction recovery is. Maybe if you're here for casual use it doesn't apply to you but I'm yet to see a guy in this community who was looking for 'big booty Brazilian' and ended up in NoFap.
I wanted to make a post about resources for truly recovering from this severe issue we are all struggling with. Unfortunately, most of the resources are internet based and I know this is something a lot of people are trying to avoid, but, that doesn't mean you cant go to a library, workspace or coffee shop to enjoy them. Below this I will list some things you can use to develop yourself. It may be a bit long so feel free to skim through the headings to see if anything catches your eye.
Self Development & Self Actualization | Actualized.org :
Great Youtuber called Leo, owns a website called Actualized.org. Completely based around Self Development and becoming the highest version of yourself. I recommend starting with this video then exploring his page for others you may like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGw8IoqBt-c
Home Learning Courses (Free & Paid) | http://www.oxfordhomestudy.com :
Oxford Home Study College has began to develop a variety of short and long courses for people looking to develop their skills in a variety of areas, FROM HOME! Their courses range from Fashion Design to Business Studies to Nutrition To Internet Marketing. So you can study so much things there. If you want to go through some of the free courses to find out what you want to do if PMO made you lost in life like a lot of us. Go to the website http://www.oxfordhomestudy.com and in the search bar type in 'short course'. You will then see a list of different, free courses that they offer. No excuse of being bored or under skilled now. I understand motivation may lack during NoFap due to flatline etc but at least read through something that interests you. It's better than binge watching on Netflix and eating unhealthily.
Exercise, Fitness, Health & Nutrition | https://www.youtube.com/usesixpackshortcuts :
If you want to improve your health drastically, get in great shape, improve confidence and be overall healthy then NoFap provides you with the energy to do that. I understand that a lot of guys may have never entered a gym in their life's due to preferring to stay home and fap. Getting a gym membership and testing out a few machines is easy but I recommend doing further research into nutrition, muscle groups, effective workouts and the full run down on what it will take to build that God like body that you can imagine for yourself. In that case I recommend visiting: https://www.youtube.com/usesixpackshortcuts I use this channel quite a bit myself for workout advice, the best workouts for certain muscles, the best foods to eat, workout and dietary timing and so on. They even focus heavily on intermittent and normal fasting which have been said to have a great impact on rebooting the brain quicker in the NoFap process. Check them out.
Baby Pips (Forex Trading) https://www.babypips.com :
This one is slightly more complex and I've only just started it myself to be honest. However, theres no harm in gaining additional skills. The greatest benefit of this one is the fact that you will be learning how to make money, FROM YOUR PHONE. Trading the financial markets is something regular guys only dream of doing even though they realise the great potential for wealth in doing it. BabyPips makes it possible to learn FOR FREE, FROM HOME and IN YOUR OWN TIME! If you've got no money, this could be a great way to start making some, once you know what you're doing of course. If you've actually got a bit of money to spare and willing to learn a new way of making money then this will be a great start. You never know, this could be that kick in the direction of financial independence you've been looking for.
Self Development Books:
If you're like me and prefer the physical version of things and not looking at a screen for hours on end every day then you will probably prefer reading real life books. My recommendations which I know will be beneficial for guys on NoFap especially include:
Think & Grow Rich - Napoleon Hill Outwitting The Devil - Napoleon Hill Rich Dad, Poor Dad - Robert Kiyosaki Talk To The Hand - Lynne Truss How To Win Friends & Influence People - Dale Carnegie The 4 Hour Work Week Millionaire Fast Lane 48 Laws Of Power Emotional Intelligence The Power Of Broke
Some of these are more interesting than others but I assure you each of these books will push you forward as a person on your journey of self development. Go check them out.
Photography, Videography & Cinematography https://www.youtube.com/usepetermckinnon24 :
This one is more specialist for someone who doesn't know what they want to do, I'm just throwing this idea in for you. This channel is run by a guy names Peter McKinnon who has proved to be a successful photographer and videographer, having his own exhibitions and almost 2 Million followers on his youtube channel. Why not try picking up a completely new skill, learning something that will make you a better person and then maybe earning some good money doing this one day?
If you think this may be for you, check out his youtube channel, maybe watch a couple of videos see if theres anything you like the sound of or anything that interests you. He does video editing as well and does tutorials of different effects you can learn. I think he even has a video of how to learn an editing software in 15-20 minutes so theres a wealth of knowledge that can be found on his youtube.
Guys it took me wayyyy longer to make this post than I had originally wanted. I had just never seen a post like this on this community or any other one. People will always say recovery is not about abstinence but instead, changing your life but then only give you life changing tips related to avoiding porn. I've tried to give you life changing tips that directly change your life.
Quick visualisation. Imagine the kind of person you'd be if you did everything on this list. Self actualised, worked out, learned to trade, read books, picked up a new creative skill, ate healthy and gained new qualifications. Now thats what I call a 180 turn in the right direction. Okay we fucked up watching porn and set ourselves back but the thing with life is that its not how you start, its how you finish. How will we finish? How will we finish this year, this month, this week? If relapsing is not in the cards for you then please pick up at least one of these, it will ease the pain and make you a better version of yourself. I do honestly wish you all the best guys and I recommend sharing this post with someone who may be struggling with lack of direction in their NoFap journey because there is a void we must face in our recovery. I'm currently taking a course in fashion design and absolutely loving it for the record. Love you all. Good luck!

Can someone analyse my political views? r/politics and r/worldpolitics ignore me

I have taken this test to show my views better than I can explain myself unquestioned. Please ask more questions.
If you're interested, ask me some questions for more information to allow you to analyse this better. I've had to split this due to character limits. Please find the last part in the comments.
