What would be an interesting adjunct to that graphic is to know what is the language most used as a second language?

Another request Fransw - don't know how you do it but somewhere else it was asked what countries used a prescribed asset policy (usually in re pension funds but like during the Nat days besides the pension funds having to invest in govt bonds to provide them with extra loot they also had a system whereby an amount was added to your tax bill and you were allocated an appropriate amount of govt bonds that were redeemable over 5 years (IIRC).

Some worked out okay, depending on what happened to interest rates and some not so okay. But like the Financial Rand when the Nats did not allow Saffers to move money abroad (like they are free to do now) a secondary market develops and people buy and sell the things. At one stage FinRand was selling for 40% of ComRand (IIRC) so created some interesting opportunities for foreign investors.

So Fransw, please get busy. What countries employ this type of precribed asset policy?

And thank you for your efforts and starting this thread =D>

I wonder what London's language stats look like? That must be the top "tower of Babel"

First Infographic: Are libraries/hard copies really something of the past? The tech savvy Japanese certainly don't think so!

Second infographic: Note the time the tech savvy Japs spend on social media compare to the rest of the world..

Disciplined those Japs!..Thoughts?

They have lots of brides to sell in the Philippines and the Nigerians have bank accounts to hack and millions of dollars of hidden money to give away. :lol: #-o
