Bill Gates’ Role In India’s Amazing Transformation

The world as a whole will go cashless. -Bill Gates

The alt-right conspiracy/hysteria media have presented the brave, and inspired, move by Narendra Modi to progress India into a cashless economy at an accelerated pace as somehow negative. This is typical of the alt-right myth-making hacks. Whenever our leaders make the correct, progressive, hard choices to improve the lot of citizens and increase the inclusivity of the economy – the alt-right liars spread malicious propaganda against them. Despite these dangerous fibs – India’s cashless society is progressing beautifully and starting to deliver real results.

Although Modi has, rightfully, received the lions share of praise in the progressive media for the amazing transformation from a decrepit cash system to a fantastic modern digital system – there are others who have also worked hard (mostly behind the scenes) to bring about this change.

One of the real heroes of the coming universal cashless society is philanthropist and digital genius Bill Gates. Being extremely modest and generous Gates likes to keep his many good deeds quiet – but with just a quick bit of research it is clear that Bill has been not only one of the main philosophical drivers of a better world but has also funded many of the studies that preceded India’s magnificent change to cashless.

The Bill and Melinda Foundation are one of the main partners in an organization called Catalyst Inclusive Cashless Payment Partnership. Through this organization the Bill and Melinda Foundation were able to provide the Indian government with all the information and logistical backup to make it possible for Modi to take the extraordinary steps to smoothly convert India’s economy from a noninclusive cash system to a fully inclusive, and fair for everyone, digital system. The full list of partners is at the bottom of Catalyst’s web page – if you’re interested in who the other heroes of India’s tremendous change are.

Bill Gates has also recently published a super article in his Bill & Melinda Foundation publication, Gates Notes, detailing how mobile banking will help the poor transform their lives. We highly recommend that you give it a quick read to see just how this brilliant man is helping the global economy become more inclusive by getting rid of filthy cash, world-wide.

The alt-right fake journalists like to spin progress as bad, but the amazing transformation and improvement of living standards happening in India, due to Bill’s selfless work, makes fools of them.

eliminating cash will drive the underground economy above-ground. All of the illicit activity will come out of the shadows. Elites will pay for prostitutes and drugs not with cash but with debit and credit cards. This will finally allow sales taxes to be levied on this behavior so that the money can go to schools

Yes exactly! The more money we can get out of the private sector and into the hands of the government, the better off we will all be!

trav777

It’s not just that. “We all know” that our schools are a disaster not due to something like blacks, but because of underfunding. Despite “facts” showing that city schools with high minority populations are actually overfunded with respect to white schools (especially in the NE, see Ron Unz et. al.), it’s really a matter of underserving, lack of “access,” all of the money that’s spent by the white kids in their schools and not on the black kids in the cities, and slavery. Yes, I know some “data” shows places like Baltimore at #2 per capita spending in the nation (Cleveland, DC, etc. high up too), and that EVERY high black % city has spending near the top of the so-called “list” but I reject these things as data-driven racism. White schools are better because of money, not because of something racist like genetics. East Asian-dominated schools are even better still because of white privilege. And Jim Crow.

Remember when the state got into the vice…er…dreams business? With the lottery? The money was going to schools. Legalizing dope? Money is going to schools. This is win/win. The minority schools which are according to the “numbers” already overspending per student with absolutely no benefit whatsoever, will receive even MORE money! We can look back at the track record of politician promises when lotteries were legalized over absurd and obsolete “moral” objections and see how much more successful schools are now than then. They are cranking out passing grades and no child is being left behind. Yes, I know, some states actually changed the passing scores along racial lines so that the conforming score for Asians on standardized math evaluations is nearly twice that of blacks, but ignore this shit as it is just racism rearing its ugly head in Current Year. The important thing is that all races now pass at the same rates. And if you took a poll, most people would believe that black and Hispanic schools get way less money than white ones, and what the average person believes is what matters, not stupid shit like data or evidence.

AccreditedThinker

Asians were once as much a reviled minority as Blacks, but now beat the latter in virtually every metric, except important contributions to culture like rap music and carjacking (inner-city minorities’ innovative method to reduce CO2 pollution by confiscating and neutralising cars via a process called “joyriding”, a term that indicates the pleasure they derive from selflessly helping Mother Gaia).

Isn’t it amazing the degree to which Whites have raised up a group they hate – Asians – in their desperate attempts to justify their enslavement of Blacks? Extraordinary!

The benefits of education are undeniable! 73% of white males without college educations voted for Trump vs 63% of white males with college educations. This means that a college education significantly reduces your chance of voting for a bigot, and this is proof positive that education is the key to progress.

ExpatLogger,
While I understand your analogy probably meant no harm, I would ask that you refrain from, or at least place a potential trigger warning with a disclaimer when describing such animal cruelty.
If you knew the abuses these poor captive creatures have been subjected to you would choose your words more wisely.
Our cause has gone a long way to prevent abuses to our brother animals. We have successfully shut down the evil Circus industry and will not stop until all animals have the same basic human rights afford by all.

“Cash” is sooo last Century, and feeds a vast pool of miscreants who use “cash” not to pay their due taxes.

Prime Minister Modi has heroically transformed the already thriving Indian economy into an international powerhouse, in one fell swoop.

Get rid of the drug dealers, criminals, the tax-avoiders, and make every single transaction of every single one of the 1.3 billion or so on the sub-continent fully traceable, and not only will tax receipts skyrocket, but purchasing patterns can be drilled-down through the data, and Government services for the poor can be applied quickly and effectively.

Elections (which normally involve internecine strife) will now be peaceful affairs, and the economic demographics of the voters in a particular area can be readily identified, and electoral boundaries adjusted to suit.

Prime Minister Modi deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, and perhaps as well the sadly misnamed Nobel Prize in Economics.

I only hope for a worldwide impetus, and Bill and Melinda Gates are champions for this with all their charitable works.

The author of the following link is clearly an alt-Right fascist cisgendered heteronormative hater, but he discusses some exciting monetary ideas being developed by our wise, democratically-elected representatives at the Federal Reserve (so called because it is both a Federal agency and has many reserves)

https://www.caseyresearch.com/cs/project-fedcoin-short

unfortunately, the useful information is peppered with the usual paranoid conspiracy nonsense that typically accompanies amateur interest in our democratic monetary system. The authors are actually upset by the idea of every monetary transaction being logged and available to scrutiny by accredited officials – and are advising people how to evade it!

Their ideas are the usual tired rehash of buying moneyrocks like gold and silver as an “investment”, and developing “skills” such as farming. And – get this – they recommend avoiding bonds issued by accredited governments, on the grounds they’re “overpriced”! Worth reading for the comedy value alone.

Right,… so that bankers can collect a fee on every transaction. There was a time when the U.S. was a manufacturing powerhouse but it has fallen into decay and it now simply exports financial products and entertainment (and violence). This is simply a further expansion of U.S. financial business interests around the world and will further the flow of money into Wall Street. Gates helping the little guy? What a laugh. Can’t you just see the beggars of Bangalore pulling out their terminals or iphones so that they can accept donations from passersby.

Er, it costs money to run a bank, so of course they would need to charge for this important service…hello???

It is so much safer keeping money in the bank where it cannot be lost or stolen. Only a drugs dealer, arms smuggler or male/female/ transgendered/other species prostitute is against a cashless society. Which one are you, Skeptic?

#sexist

trav777

prostitution is legal! Or should be as it empowers women when they are not being abused by it.

California legalized child prostitution. Only those who are on the purchasing side are committing crimes. Same in France with adult prostitution at whatever the age of consent is there.

Prostitution CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be criminalized because mostly womyn do it and they are “vulnerable” and “oppressed” and “victimized” and “lack access”…also they are “empowered” and “powerful” and “brilliant” and “strong” and “brave” and “capable” and “can do anything a man can do except better.” At the same time, mind you.

Therefore, because they are also never wrong in any way because of the possession of a vagina (except when arguing with one higher on the victim totem pole) their conduct CANNOT be criminal! So your entire post is sexist and I will flag you!

In response to: It is so much safer keeping money in the bank where it cannot be lost or stolen.

Have you ever heard of loosing your money because a bank went belly up?

In the news over the last few years was the Cyprus bank run, limited access to money in Greece and on topic for this article, a limited ability to take out your money from a bank in INDIA, because with the demonitization of large value ( US 7.50 and 15.00 yes folks these were the largest value notes in INDIA) there is not enough cash available for the banks to give you your money so the government now RATIONS it.

Have you ever heard of cash being stolen from your house? It is much more common than bank going belly-up. Besides, money held in bank is federally insured up to $250 000 (which is way too much money for anyone). The safest way of storing money is in bank or Federal Reserve computers.

A good chunk population of the US population is too poor to have bank accounts, and here we are talking about poverty stricken India, and not the US.

And you did not address the fact that currently in India you can’t even take out your money from the bank because there are is a shortage of paper money.

If people starve to death in India because they CANT GET THEIR MONEY OUT OF A BANK TO BUY FOOD you can thank Bill Gates.

The proper word for India’s cashless transformation is notebandi (ban on rupee notes). It takes its inspiration from nasbandi in 1970’s when Sanjay Gandhi (son of Indira Gandhi, then PM of India), got the youth sterilized, through threats, inducement or trickery. The youth who benefited from this program, did not get into any dumb things, like raising a family or running a business, or doing something creative. They went on to central banking, government, and NGO activism, and in co-ordination with Bill Gates, the hero of progressives everywhere, implemented the “surgical strike” of collective punishment, called notebandi. The UN now wants to learn from India’s experience, so that it can be rolled everywhere. This is actually another way of saying that it (the UN) already knows cashless economy is great, and cashlessness will be brought to countries everywhere as holy surgical strikes.

Bill Gates, the all-knowing one, is there anything in the world, that cannot benefit from your greatness?
GM mosquitoes from Gates’ funded Oxitec, to be released for field trials in India – http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/GM-mosquito-trials-to-control-dengue-chikungunya-launched/article17095375.ece

India is also looking at another “alternative”, Wolbachia pipientis infected A. aegypti mosquitoes for fighting Zika virus. It is a great alternative, field trials in Brazil were funded by none other than Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation – http://www.nature.com/news/rio-fights-zika-with-biggest-release-yet-of-bacteria-infected-mosquitoes-1.20878

The secret weapon in Gates’ armory is Eunuchbachia spreadentis bacterium. Once high level government officials, and regulators get infected by association with infected females from Gates foundation, then the path to cash-free, zika-free world becomes easy.

This is why the UN is projecting that by 2100, Africans will constitute the majority of the world’s population! This will be a miraculous time to be alive with enriching diversity everywhere.

Imagine that once the Africans take political control of everything, how well-run all things will be. Every time I turn on a Hollywood movie or TV commercial I see just how in control, deliberate, logical, and capable blacks are and I am left with a feeling of total contentment that humanity will be in their strong, wise hands.

Excellent article Rich! Now that Trump’s fascist government has taken over America, it’s up to countries like China and India to lead the way. When the world sees these countries sour ahead of the US because of their cashless systems and higher taxes, the rest of the world will follow.

The beauty of socialism is that it would be like having one big Microsoft controlling the whole country. Everyone would work for Microsoft. Everyone would buy from Microsoft. Bill Gates would be in charge, and we wouldn’t have to worry about competition arousing animal spirits. Wouldn’t that be great?

One central company run by an accredited, government approved CEO would help in promoting disadvantaged persons to positions of leadership. Currently, the promotions are often based on outdated criteria such as “performance” and do not sufficiently take into account the gender and race of the applicant or person to be promoted.

MillionDollarBonus

Interesting you say that drb6 – this is going to be the very subject of one my next articles – the importance of identity politics over qualifications. Being an African American transgender for example is far more important on a job application than having a degree in Math. The latter is simply a qualification, the former is significant in the righting of a historical injustice.

trav777

You must be channeling me as I was discussing this just the other day.

Identity IS a qualification and it is the MOST IMPORTANT ONE.

It does not matter if a building is engineered by a person with a freaking honors degree in structural engineering, what matters most is the color of the engineer’s skin!

The latest Hollywood movie about the women who helped NASA by doing rote multiplication PROVES THIS. They were the CRITICAL LINK in the space program. Those who would minimize their achievements by saying yeah they were just one or two out of hundreds doing the same thing or even worse that the REAL LIFE woman that the movie is based on was so white that you could not honestly tell from a B&W picture that she identified as black are missing the point! The POINT was that they were black and being black made them the MOST IMPORTANT members of the space program!

Identity is what matters, not “qualifications.” Qualifications are DATA-DRIVEN RACISM. I would personally FAR prefer to fly on planes designed and engineered by a black person than a white engineer. And if there are no black engineers, then we should put blacks in who are NOT engineers, because DIVERSITY is our greatest strength and it will make a far stronger airplane than some stupid white men ever could!

Absolutely correct MDB. A transgendered person will bring completely different way of looking at a math problem than a white, privileged male. That is why we need to hire all 72 genders proportionally (ei., each gender should make up 1.4% of hires).

It’s kind of like Islam and Sharia Law, where womyn cover up instead of competing for men using their attractiveness, and men simply take the womyn they want without having to win them over. That’s true communism with no competition and no work. That’s REAL freedom!

womyn there are much happier too. I’ve never heard a feminist criticize FGM or having acid poured on faces in honor attacks. Womyn are probably happier without a clitoris and without the burden of having to drive and learn to read. Or to have a face if they dishonor some male member of their family by going to the market alone or something like this.

That 90% chance SEEMS to have been discredited as of this time. Snicker!

Pretty much every news outlet spewed the crap that the Russians hacked the DNC, when wikileaks, which released all those damning e-mails from the DNC stated they got them from an inside source.

According Vashisht and Puliyel, the NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Even though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated.

German measles trial

A person put up a claim on his website that he would pay out 100,000 euros if someone could provide proof that the measles virus that mainstream medicine claims causes the disease measles actually exits.

A claim for that 100,000 that made its way all the way to the German Supreme Court was denied and included as evidence all 6 major papers on the measles virus.

These papers were found to be in error as they failed to use the scientific method (including control groups) and they were deeded insufficient to show that the measles virus did exist.

If anyone can show me that the German Supreme Court ruled that there be a payout of those 100,000 euros then I will admit to a mistake.

from the German court case sited by drb6 using Google translate from German text on the second page we find the following

4) presented the defendant several publications, which according to his opinion the existence
Of measles virus and asked for disbursement of the prize money. The defendant-
Reject this because the detection of measles virus was not performed.

So if the German Supreme Court did not order the payout of the 100,000 euros it means that the Court found the papers presented to have errors and were otherwise faulty. Since those 6 papers were the 6 main papers on the existence of the measles virus, then the measles virus as currently thought to exist, does not exist.
