5  Economy / Economics / Re: China ends term limits, Xi Jinping to rule China for life? on: March 16, 2018, 09:14:13 AM
The roughly 3,000 delegates of the National People’s Congress, China’s legislature, voted almost unanimously on Sunday to end a two-term limit on the presidency, one of the main leadership posts held by Xi Jinping. While the overwhelming approval by the party-controlled congress was not a surprise, the repercussions go beyond just allowing Mr. Xi to stay on longer.

Here’s what is at stake, and why ending the term limit matters.

Why is the limit in place now?
One lesson that China drew from the upheavals of the Cultural Revolution was the danger of concentrating power in one supreme, unassailable leader who ruled for life.

In 1982, when China was recovering from that chaotic era, lawmakers approved a new Constitution that said the president and also the vice president “shall serve no more than two consecutive terms.”

It is sometimes said that Deng Xiaoping, who led China after Mao, introduced the term limit to prevent the top leader from again becoming too powerful. But that’s not entirely true. Back then the Chinese presidency was not such a powerful post. Deng wielded much of his power informally, without titles or term limits, and through his control of the military.

Even so, the politicians and legal experts who drafted China’s 1982 Constitution saw lifelong tenure as a recipe for tyranny, especially in a one-party state.

“If someone stays in office for 15 years, the people won’t dare express their opinions to him,” said Fang Yi, one of the framers of the Constitution. “The French president begins with one term of seven years, with an option for a second term. But that’s different. They have opposition parties who pick their faults every day.”

How did it become important?
The presidential term limit became more important in the 1990s, when Deng prepared to pass power to his successor, Jiang Zemin.

Under Deng in the 1980s, there was turmoil in succession, as two protégés were forced to resign following student demonstrations. Deng tried to ensure the success of his final choice, Mr. Jiang, by setting him up in China’s three most powerful posts: Communist Party general secretary, chairman of the commission in charge of the military and the presidency, which Mr. Jiang took over in 1993.

But Deng also wanted to ensure that Mr. Jiang did not stay on indefinitely. He started a succession cycle by also promoting Mr. Jiang’s younger heir-apparent, Hu Jintao.

Under Mr. Jiang and later Mr. Hu, a new norm formed. The top leader had clear authority because he held all three main posts. But he had to hand them to a successor after about a decade.

“The three-in-one leadership system and form — of party general secretary, state president and military commission chairman — is not only necessary but also the most fitting for a great party and a great country like ours,” Mr. Jiang said in 2004.

That arrangement allowed two of the most stable transitions of power in China’s modern history, from Mr. Jiang to Mr. Hu in 2002, and then Mr. Hu to Mr. Xi six years ago.

Is the presidency powerful in China?
In China, the political job that matters most is the general secretary of the Communist Party. The party controls the military and domestic security forces, and sets the policies that the government carries out. China’s presidency lacks the authority of the American and French presidencies.

This difference is reflected in language. In Chinese, China’s president is called “zhuxi,” which really translates as “chairman.” Foreign presidents get a different title, “zongtong.” So in effect, Chinese people are referring to Mr. Xi as the “state chairman,” though in English his title is officially translated as “state president” to put him on an even footing with other world leaders.

Still, the Chinese presidency is not entirely ceremonial. The president has the power, acting with the legislature, to declare war or a state of emergency. In times of crisis, disagreement between a party leader and president could cause trouble.

The presidency has become increasingly prominent thanks to China’s growing global stature. At home, Mr. Xi usually speaks as party leader; abroad, he appears as president, who is the formal head of state. Mr. Xi relishes the prestige of state visits to the White House or Buckingham Palace, which might be awkward if he were not president.

Why change the system?
The official Chinese news media have said that Mr. Xi wants to abandon the term limit so that he can keep his trinity of leadership posts. According to Xinhua News Agency and other party-run news outlets, having a term limit on just the presidency is unreasonable because neither of Mr. Xi’s other two major posts — party leader and military chairman — has a similar limit.

Of course, this argument does not address the other solution to that inconsistency: imposing limits on the party and military posts. His action leaves little doubt that Mr. Xi is clearing the way to remain top leader for a long time to come, and without clear rivals.

If the term limit remained, Mr. Xi would have to step down as president at the end of his next five-year term, in 2023. Any successor could potentially become a rival.

Mr. Xi seems determined to remain “three-in-one” leader because he sees himself on a historic mission to make China into a great power. Achieving that will take more than a decade, Xi has said.

Last year, Mr. Xi showed his intent to stay in power by declining to promote a potential successor into the new Politburo Standing Committee, the party’s most powerful body. Mr. Xi and Mr. Hu both served political apprenticeships in the Standing Committee before taking over.

Will Xi will be leader for life?
Mr. Xi has produced plenty of surprises in his first five years in power, not least his decision to abolish the term limit before his second term as president had even started. So predicting Mr. Xi’s future steps isn’t easy.

Even so, The People’s Daily said earlier this month that ending the presidential term limit does not “imply a system of lifelong leadership.” The point seems to be that while Mr. Xi may be around for a while, he won’t be another Mao, who remained in power even as he grew ill and incoherent with age.

But Mr. Xi has not specified how many terms he plans on. Perhaps Mr. Xi himself does not have a firm idea yet. Or perhaps he figures he can enhance his power even further by keeping everyone else guessing.


Not certain what implications this might have for bitcoin in china.  Smiley  There could be postives, or there could be negatives. It might be accurate to say eliminating Xi Jinping's term limit will represent a greater centralization of political power within china. That element could be interesting to discuss within a centralization versus decentralization perspective.  .

How do people see this panning out? It is interesting how Donald Trump is proposing greater term limits for political office, while in china the complete opposite is occurring with the further removal of term limits. Certainly there is a difference in methodology at the moment with china and america pursuing polar opposites.

I am not in support of any presidency ruling for life. Rather than China's presidency ruling for life, let them take example from Germany. In Germany, their Chancellor can be in power just for as long as the people keep voting for her. Elections are conducted after each term expires and as long as she continues to win during these elections, she will keep being the Chancellor. It is not limited to 2 terms alone. Its better China adopts this method so that the day they become tired or weary of their presidency, they can vote him out. Presidency for life kind of stripe the Chinese people of their voting rights.

In my own opinion, if China pulls through with this policy, China might become a very autocratic state just like North Korea were the government makes even the minutest of decisions for them whether its against their will or not. I hope the citizens of this nation can reconsider their decision.

I've been one of those people, the people that buy at the high points of crypto and then sell low, losing my money and then later on losing out on a good amount of profits which I could've made. I'd like to know some of the reasons that people do this, besides doing it to cut their losses as that one is my reason.

Thanks guys!
People do this because there is no proper fore site. Frankly, many people have done this including myself. I usually have so much regret like why didn't I invest earlier or sell earlier. If I had a very good fore site, I would have waited a bit more or sold a bit earlier. I heard some people read graphs to know the future prices of coins but I don't know how to do it. Hopefully I will learn soon.

He could be right or wrong. Only time can tell. Just make sure you play safe. Don't believe him completely and don't doubt him completely. But even I myself can't assure you of anything, only time will tell.
12  Economy / Economics / Re: If you achieve your target in crypto field then what you are going to do next? on: February 03, 2018, 03:45:43 AM
If I have reached my target in cryptocurrency, I will buy properties and real estate. The value of real estates goes up over time so there is no loss except of course some kind of disaster happens natural or human cause. But apart from that, you are relatively safe.
13  Economy / Economics / Re: do you really like crypto coin? on: February 03, 2018, 03:41:29 AM
Cryptocurrency is not something that interests me a lot. I am doing it mostly because there is gain in it when you are good at your game. It is also not so stressful and time consuming. Just reading a couple of pages to know which currency to invest in.
14  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin reduces unemployment on: February 03, 2018, 03:38:15 AM
I agree with you. It has reduced unemployment  especially in developing and underdeveloped countries. For instance, in my country some people can wait for several years after graduation to get their first jobs. Instead of waiting and having no source of income, asking relatives and parents for money, you can use your time to do this and gain some money.
15  Economy / Economics / Re: Bitcoin is Falling...Is it Panic Time? on: February 03, 2018, 03:34:35 AM
Dear it is not panic time. Right now I will call it hold time and investment time. If you have these coin, the hold them. If you don't have then invest now that the prices are low. You will be happy you did.
16  Economy / Economics / Re: 99% of the people still think that fiat money are better than crypto on: February 03, 2018, 03:29:34 AM
You won't blame them if they say fiat is better than cryptocurrency. As a matter of fact, fiat for now still has several advantages over cryptocurrency. One, fiat has no transaction charge if you are transacting face to face, however, cryptocurrency always have toansaction charges whether you are transacting face to face or not. Fiat have insurances that insure their money, but Bitcoin and alt coins don't seem to have any such things. Fiat is can be used by a common market man or woman who knows nothing about the Internet but Bitcoin and other alt coins can. If Bitcoin and Blockchain can rectify these issues, then it will get more accepted.
17  Economy / Economics / Re: why bitcoin is banned by the government on: February 03, 2018, 02:53:23 AM
If you are very conversant with the news, the common reason why different government have ban cryptocurrency is because people use it to transact illegal businesses and because of the high fraud rates. If fraud can reduce on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, the government will most likely lift their bans or if the government finds a way to catch illegal transactions made on Bitcoin, they will likely lift their bans. Again, the bank industries are threatened with how crytocurrency is getting wildly accepted and they are getting scared for their business. As the central banks of most counties are run by their government, the government have to protect their interest and impose these bans.
18  Economy / Economics / Re: Another Good news about bitcoin on: February 03, 2018, 02:46:24 AM
Why does Bitcoin need a bank. I don't think having a Bitcoin bank is a good news. This is because it would further make cryptocurrency transactions less anonymous. However, if this bank can help solve the problem of fraud and detect fraudulent and illegal deal then it's not a bad idea. This will help reduce scam and more people will come to accept it.

Yes. It is very possible to become a spacialist studying by your self. I know people I can use as example, a popular one is Ben Carson. Before him, nobody had ever successfully separated saimase twins. He was the first you know why because he studied himself. There are so many resources online that can teach you from ground to up. The only thing about self studying is that you have to be determined and discipline if not you may stop along the line.
20  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Re: Top 2 altcoins to invest in NOW. on: February 03, 2018, 02:36:35 AM
