Which represents real (de jure) government in Australia?
Which is seen on “government” literature ?
Would you be surprised to find a company with the same name as your country registered with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Washington DC? Well, guess what?! Among those listed as corporate entities by the United States SEC are Israel, Turkey, Italy, Hungary, Sweden, Finland,Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, The Philippines, South Korea, Japan, Jamaica, South Africa, Canada,Australia… and my personal favourite (and I quote) “Her Majesty the Queen in Right of the Province of Alberta as represented by Alberta Investment Management Corp.”
Interesting! So what could all this mean? For the purpose of this article we will follow the example of Australia.
