UK Leaving EU Puts World Economy On Alert

When the UK voted in a special referendum to leave the European Union (EU), Flavio Maluf called for everyone to take heed. He believes this major event will precipitate in a major follow-on negative effect on all the world’s stock markets. This does seem likely, as the EU was heavily supported by the UK’s contributions, to the tune of € 11 billion in the year 2014. According to Maluf, no one who is knowledgeable about the world of finance and money markets could miss the warning signs.

The signs are coming fast and clear. European stock markets dropped an average of 12 percent after the Brexit event. Maluf goes on to point out some other signs of a weakening economy on a global scale. He says that although the UK economy had been strengthening, the inflation in Britain was too high. This was because of the burden of supporting the poorer countries in the EU. Compounding this issue was the lack of taxation on imports to the UK from other EU countries. After the exit, the UK reinstated the tariffs and even updated them to return this revenue stream to the UK.

Another sign Maluf noticed is that the British pound sterling fell after Brexit to a low not seen since the dark days of 1985. He predicts the return of the trade taxes will sour the UK’s relationship with many countries, even beyond Europe. However, he also notes that his native Brazil has never done very much trade with the UK, anyway. Less than 2 percent of Brazil’s exports ever make it to the UK.

Flavio Maluf is the founder of a number of companies in Brazil, most notably, the sustainable product materials company, Eucatex. Eucatex is a business dedicated to creating building construction and product manufacturing materials in a sustainable way and for better global sustainability. His business has been growing steadily in the last 20 years, along with other Eco-friendly companies in South America.  Read his official blog for more insight, straight from Flavio Maluf.

Teaching of the Kabbalah Center

Kabbalah is a unique brand of spiritualism that is gaining popularity in the United States and beyond. It is based on interpretations of ancient Judaism however the Kabbalah philosophy maintains many aspects that are unique unto itself.

Kabbalah spiritual leaders base their belief on a text called The Book of Formation, which they claim is a secret text written 5,000 years ago. It is described as a guide, sharing philosophies and methods of thought that help followers perceive the true nature of the universe and an individuals place in it.

The main text of the Kabbalah is devoted to deciphering the teaching of the Torah. These are the ancient writings that have made up the basis of the Jewish faith for centuries. These same writings, or variations on them, also comprise a significant section of the Christian Old Testament. Study of the Kabbalah was originally highly restricted, allowed only to priests and educated, scholarly men of a certain status within the Jewish community.

Only recently has this document been made available to the public. The Kabbalah Centre is devoted to spreading the teaching of the Kabbalah to all people regardless of race or religion. The organization states that while the text originated as part of ancient Judaism, it’s teaching are of a more spiritual nature and not specific to any denomination or religious hierarchy.

The organization was founded by Rav, or teacher, Yehuda Ashlag in the year 1922. Kabbalah Centers now exist in location all across the globe, making their teachings available to those with an interest. Centers work to provide scholarships and opportunities to those who want to study Kabbalah and use it’s teaching to better their lives or the lives of others.

The goal of their teachings is to provide nothing less than a sense of purpose and life-long fulfillment that will drive followers to fulfill their greatest ambitions. Kabbalah teachings say this sense of fulfillment can be achieved by utilizing their teaching to connect with the energy, life, and light of the universe.

The result is a life of happiness and achievement, immune to frustrating ups and downs. It’s principles are apparently universal and apply to all aspects of life both physical and spiritual. Visit the Kabbalah Centre on their website to learn more about their locations and events.
