" Howie: "You may want to ask someone from Venezuela"

Why did you bypass Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK?"

***************************************************

Two reasons - first - the thread is about offering annuities - in other words controlling
the selling of financial assets to all individuals. Single payer - for all intents and purposes.

Second - I tend to expect that people - and governments - will tend to eventually live
down to the lowest common denominator levels - they intend to have no competition.

Simple really.
When there is no competition - consumers have no recourse - other thaan going to the
black market.
And only those with "pull" or extraordinary resources can access the black market.
