John and Doves,I remember reading an article many years ago stating that Stock Exchanges would merge as part of the World Government plan.After a short trawl though all my stuff filed under "Money and MOB" I failed to locate it.However, I did find an 8 page press release from Business Sunday, Channel Nine, Sydney, NSW dated 10/30/1996.Fourteen years old. The programme was about the planned floating of the ASX (Australian Stock Exchange).The choice extract has to be this -Q: Don't you see the irony in it? You are listing to expand globally and you could end up being taken over by a foreign exchange yourself?Mr Newman (then Chairman ASX) : Yes, we could be but I think it is unlikely. - end quote.Now we see the planned merging of Singapore and Australian stock exchanges.http://www.voanews.com/english/news/asia/Singapore-and-Australia-Stock-Exchanges-Merge-105665238.htmlhttp://www.news.com.au/business/asx-and-singapore-stock-exchange-in-84-billion-merger/story-e6frfm1i-1225943380685Singapore? Isn't that where you live, John?But seriously, we see the world shrinking by this planned merger.Keep looking up.God is still in control.Phil.
