2015 New Year Message
Capitalism presently sits upon the horns of a dilemma.
Two decades of success in EMs deploying 'Asian Values'
Boosted wealth and standards for millions
Yet with much self-sacrifice in hearts and minds.
Whilst western masses feel betrayed
Yesteryear's 'Anglo model' viewed as inherently broken
Philosophers and politicians debate.
When they should be ever more empowered to promote its growth
Western corporations did little to promote 'as promised' spin-off entrepreneurs
Academic spin-offs often high ideals and money-spinning over credibility.
Perhaps newer "Asian Values" will now learn from the "Anglo" past
Whilst the western power-base likewise fundamentally re-aligns
To respect individuals and their personal power.
New socio-economic roads must be laid by which
All participants avoid being cuckolded by the horns of capitalism
