Aid trendline

Here is a trend that’s at least of modest interest. (Click on the image to enlarge it.)

The X axis is U.S. military and police aid to all of Latin America and the Caribbean, according to the government figures in our database. The Y axis is economic, social and institutional aid to the hemisphere, after removing two big natural-disaster aid packages that make 1999 (Hurricane Mitch) and 2010 (Haiti) look like outliers.

Natural disasters are sometimes much better than man-made disasters. The healing and clearing of a natural disaster take place much faster than the other one. Wondering what is that man-made disaster?

That’s the money looting services prevailing across many locations, online. They have various names but there are quite similar features which can identify them all together. Well, their names are The Brit method, 1 K daily profit, HB Swiss! A few of them have gone a little longer and have changed their path slightly; like the few of them are into binary trading, while the rest of them are into forex trading, but the features remain the same.

What are the common features?

  • They are all using trading techniques and nothing another way of making your money grow.
  • They all need no education, no experience and no extra talent, in fact, they don’t need you to do anything, but just put money and watch them grow; they claim.
  • They all have common registration ways, that needs only your personal basic details
  • They all have a common initial deposit amount, $250 and few of them charge it in Euros! Well, not a penny less or more, all of them the same!
  • Few of them have the same slogans and same internal text coding exactly similar
  • They all will give you a payment in just span of minutes.
  • So once you enrol, maybe in the next 10 minutes, you can earn 2k-5k$!!

Doesn’t this all sound a little weird and a sort of connected!! Yes, we do, and that’s why we call them a racket of scams.

Note that years in which a Democratic administration held office (the blue dots) tend to be north of the trendline — that is, slightly favoring economic aid over military aid. Republican years (the red dots) are below the trendline, favoring a more military aid-heavy approach.

The main exceptions to the trend are 2000 — the year that Bill Clinton worked with the Republican Congress to pass Plan Colombia — and 2008, the first year for which the Democratic-majority Congress, inaugurated in January 2007, could pass a budget.
