From the Arab world to the Baltics, the 2nd derivitive of "change" is increasing.
Its so amusing to see various Arab states attempt to divert the unwashed masses by bribes (such as increasing the minimum wage, etc.)...this will of course prompt the opposite of the desired effect as the general populace realizes THEY hold POWER.
This also dovetails nicely into a discussion about the Foreign Corrupt Trade Practices Act in the United States. I will comment about this at length soon.
