New Economic Bloc

New Economic Bloc

We have two economic superpowers US and China. US is a rich country and China is a poor country. China is a superpower because of its population. It is four times that of the United states. These are huge economies. India has a population that is almost as much as China's. It is an even poorer country. Because of the population, it has the potential to become an economic superpower as well. EU is not a country but a bloc of countries. It has surpassed China but is behind US in terms of GDP. If we include EU, we have three economic superpowers, or a Triarchy. All three together have 59 % of World GDP. 

One proposal is that an anti-EU will be formed with Independent Nations that will have preferential economic relations. The temporary name CINEA (Coalition of Independent Nations for Economic Advancement) has been given. in addition to UK, a few other countries will leave EU to join the New Economic Bloc. In the two examples below those countries are Ireland, Italy, Greece, Cyprus. In another example (A Pentarchy) instead of Italy who have all Eastern European members. 

EU is ultraglobalists' pet project. Once it is completed, they will make American, Asian, African Union and will put all these under a fascist World regime. An opposite bloc would be the pet project of those who favour an alternative globalization. 

USA can be inside or outside CINEA. In the first option the Triarchy remains but CINEA with USA is much bigger than the other two. Some people feel that this may be problematic because of the huge economic size USA have. Some states are like countries. Another option is that US is very close but not inside. We will have a Tetrarchy, USA, CINEA, EU, China. 

Case 1 

CINEA consists of 10 countries, mostly European. The exceptions are Australia, New Zealand, Israel. It has 11% of the World output and together with USA it becomes 35%. If we add EU23 and China it increases to 66% or 2/3. It is slightly higher than current Triarchy's 59 % but is divided into four. If we add Japan, the third largest national economy, CINEA surpasses EU23 and China with 17%. With USA it goes to 41%. The Tetrarchy (USA, CINEA, China, EU) controls almost 3/4 (73%) of World output.

Case 2

Lines 1-10 remain the same in Table 2. We add 8 more countries, mostly outside Europe. Line 16 is Japan that was included as an option in the previous table. CINEA has the same economic size with USA and together have 50% of World's GDP.  EU23 and China add 31%, so the four economic entities (2 countries & 2 blocks) have 80% of World output.

The New Block may be divided into parts e.g. a) UK, Ireland, Norway, Canada, Australia b) Balkans & Eastern Meditteranean (Table 3) c) From Turkey eastwards including Turkey d) Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries e)... f)...

Countries in the bloc may choose voluntarily English as a second official language. This should have happened in EU several years ago. Having English as a second official language does not mean that every citizen is obligated to know it. It will be taught in schools and transcripts will be produced in English if necessary or asked.

There is a number of ways in which the new bloc may work. What is important is to have cooperation and coordination among INDEPENDENT countries without an EU-like stringent, rigid, inefficient, problematic bureaucracy and stop ultraglobalists plans for a World fascist regime.

Countries keep their cultural and national identity. They control their laws, borders and economy. At the same time they cooperate and coordinate for something that is in everybody’s interest, economic advancement. What we have shown above are only examples.
