As we had listed a number of Decisive Leaders of 2020, two this year (2021), we want to mention in particular. One is of a geographic smaller area [176,215 sq. km.], the other of a vast geographic expanse [17,098,242 sq.km.]: Uruguay and Russia. We have watched both countries over the many decades and have seen improvements in economic, political, and social growth FROM OUR PERSPECTIVES. We wholeheartedly endorse: “Capitalism With A Conscience” [CWAC] as a operational paradigm for good governing in seeking economic prosperity; this, for a nation’s long-term sustainability and satisfaction of its citizenry.
In Uruguay, Mr. Luis Alberto Lacalle Pou is establishing a new “Free Trade Zone” which should help his wonderful country, the noted ‘Switzerland of South America’, to be even more prosperous. Since his election, Mr. Pou has consistently shown a determination to increase trade, through Mercosur, as well as desiring free-trade ability for members of that group; a ‘Innovator’ he is. He has moved his country away from the ‘Socialist Agenda’ of his political predecessors.
We think it behooves investors to consider Uruguay as a good place to engage in International Commerce. It has: Intelligent educated citizenry (with good work ethics); Great location; Enjoyable year around weather; Moderate Taxes, Ocean port accessibility; and a Wise Government. Investing Dollars, Euros, Pesos, Renminbi, Yen, et al in Uruguay would be smart. It offers many agricultural opportunities and for ‘Industries’: Chemicals, Electrical Machinery, Petroleum Products, Textiles, and Transportation Equipment exist.
To Uruguay’s North, Northeast direction across the Atlantic ocean is the geographic behemoth Russia: the “Land of Plenty” (as to Minerals, Timber, et al). Its President, Mr. Vladimir Putin, has very capably led his country, from the earlier collapse of his predecessors’ inefficient economic system, we think, to a CWAC realism for his people. Time and again the Russian public polls demonstrate a high esteem for their Leader, a Man who truly Leads his Nation. Now, Mr. Putin has initiated a railway project to the Arctic [Sabetta, Yamal Peninsula] that will supplement portions of the North Sea Route from Europe to Asia, with the flow of goods and materials needed for the gargantuan undertaking. By sailing through this route, shippers will save seven to ten days versus going through the Suez Canal from Asia to Europe. He Has also expanded his Nuclear Ice Breaker Fleet to facilitate shipping. One of the many aspects of his leadership we extol, his financial acumen in keeping his Nation’s expenditures in check and NOT engaging in FOOLISH ‘hyper-expensive’ hegemonic forays around the world [as evidenced by another nation’s recent history].
As we have maintained for decades, many Intelligence Agents make good executives. They have: a wealth of experience in dealing with others; are good thinking ‘on the move’; are resourceful; keep a calm demeanor, and can make proper-timed ‘Chess’ moves. In this regard, we think Mr. Putin is a “Chess Master”, no current political leader anywhere is his equal.
“Jealous others” from afar, [the ‘Germalists’ [writers] in foreign nations’ Mainstream Media] if they try to disparage Mr. Putin’s actions, the more they will demonstrate the effete results of their ‘Handlers’ above them; this, and hostile government leaders in those nations with hidden agendas. Their acrimony is understood, by the intellect of many others, to be merely ‘Sour Grapes’, nothing more valid.
We wish the very best for both President Pou and President Putin as they both facilitate CWAC in their countries.
Reality: Small physical country or large, Great Leaders always demonstrate Integrity and Wisdom, that is why the ‘Man Upstairs’ retains them in the positions.
