"Saudi Vision 2030 has been described as a “neo-liberal blueprint”. It envisages, among hundreds of initiatives, privatizing entire sectors of the economy, cutting subsidies, courting investors at home and abroad, streamlining government services, and going public with the national oil company, Saudi Aramco.
In its two-year review of Saudi Vision 2030, issued in May 2018, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) declared that Saudi Arabia was making “good progress” in implementing reforms likely to help spur economic growth." Neville Teller Oct. 2018
The "JOBS" president, the president of MAGA, has quietly and secretively scripted clauses in each of his foreign deals that permit (and in some cases even force) U.S. companies to set up shop overseas to make the products The Donald claims will create jobs for our citizens right here at home.
The Saudi deal, the 110 billion dollar deal Trump claims will "create over a million jobs", is certainly NOT an exception to that rule since the Vision 2030 plan (crafted by Mohammad bin Salman and globalist McKinsey Group in late 2015) specifically sets into law a clause that mandates AT LEAST 50% of all purchase deals with companies overseas requires them to set up shop and build products in Saudi Arabia.
Which is fine for U.S. companies since our government will subsidize their costs to build shops and they can take advantage of cheaper labor and much fewer taxes.
Ultimately these business ventures (450 billion worth across all markets according to Trump) will build an entire industrial infrastructure... in another country. Talk about NAFTA on steroids. And the whole time the only folks in this country who will benefit from it will be major shareholder or the owners of the companies or their CEOs. Workers will be screwed in the long run because the companies, once these shops are opened, will ultimately send more and more work to them due to lower overhead costs. American workers will once again be forced to compete with cheaper labor overseas to the point where they cant and shops are closed here and opened over there.
Now that was the plan and that is why MbS was treated like a God when he came over here in March of this year. His is the ONLY voice in deciding who gets what share of the pie when the KSA is chopped up on the neoliberal chopping block and the ONLY voice when it comes to which foreign companies get what military contracts.
And all of a sudden MbS is being universally demonized by ALL of our media and even alternative media outlets.
Well it appears he may not be so inclined to give our oligarchs the prime pickings and so our oligarchs' puppets in congress, the White House and the media have decided to do something about it.
After all... we are talking about 6 trillion dollars in direct investments in Saudi Arabia's privatization schemes and well over that amount when it comes to business deals and investments being made by the KSA overseas.
That is holy, good God, biblical money... and our neoliberal masters of the universe want it. Every bit of it. So they will pressure MbS to pick their companies for the plum assets of his country, or damn it all, they will pressure the kingdom to get rid of him and install someone more friendly to our...
... national interests.
How many times have we seen one of our dictators fall from grace and have to be removed and replaced in the name of those same "national interests"?
It happens all the time and this is no exception. Not rocket science. Not brain surgery. You don't have to be a Rhodes Scholar to understand the situation at hand.
Back in 2015 MbS issued a promise that many of our oligarchs and financial institutions were counting on profiting from and as it turns out... they aren't getting what they wanted.
So MbS has to get his mind right and do as he is told... or he has to go.
Its really as simple as that.
