Our Observation: “As A Ship Is No Better Than Its Crew, A Crew Is No Better Than Its Captain”; So It Goes For Vessels, Nations, And Businesses

We, in International Business, for a number of decades have witnessed, what we consider very poor leadership in many ‘Arenas’ by those who had been selected to lead. The adage: “God only made one Winston Churchill” is very applicable to many nations of the world today, unfortunately. As an example: It seems, as to politicians, once in office, for many, their country Treasury is their personal ‘Piggy Bank’; for them to use as they choose. So, they benefit family members and friends profusely, while their citizens ‘pay the tab’. A iteration of this situation has, and is taking place in America. It seems the son of the Selected President had, and is, using his birth connections to his father, for personal gain from foreign business interests [who desire entree into the White House in Washington, D.C.]; so it goes.

A deviation of the ‘Captain’ role, with politicians, are those seeking access to ‘ship navigators’. By having family members, to those in the House of Representatives and Senate, knowing which direction the ‘ship’ will be sailing, the information is passed along to husbands, et al for investment purposes. As we had mentioned in previous writings, those making roughly $200,000.00+ per year, and accumulate $100,000,000.00+/- before leaving office, are suspect. “Financial Acumen Extraordinaire” by family members, their Political Party ‘Germalists’ will assure the public: “There is nothing crooked with this play.” Sure.

The problem with ‘Miscreant Mediocre Minds’ enacting laws for countries, is the un-affordable accumulation of debt which can rise into many trillions of dollars over a couple of decades; so it has gone this way in America [$28,000,000,000,000.00+ to date], as an example of what we write.

Going past this ‘Greed for Self’ on a smaller level, as to them, was the gargantuan “Governatorship Scheme” contrived by a former U.S. President [‘Captain’] and his wife [‘First Officer’]. It was the conjunction of the power of the U.S. [perhaps to be duped: Members of Congress, several other U.S. Presidents, and Intelligence Agencies] with a number of cabalistic foreign leaders to aid and abet. Fortunately, ‘Fate’ has provided interstitial reinforcements to stop the cracking of the ‘big egg’ [for now].

In business, we often see ‘Captains’ of their corporations, not being innovators, but followers of the ‘business fleet’ of mere ‘dhows’; this to ‘groundings of their ‘vessels’. A unseemly, and unfortunately set of disasters occurred with a major American airframe deciding to have excellent ‘Apple I-Pads’ be the IT pilot training mechanisms for its ‘new’ aircraft, rather than flight simulators! The ‘ship hit the reef and sunk with this stupidity’ some sea-goers might opine. Obviously, ‘mental sea-sickness’ of the airframe’s administrators, allowed this to occur.

In Public Health, there are MANY Captains of ships. Yet, it appears, they were ALL sailing into ’10 meter fog’ with their transmissometers turned off [as to the Coronavirus CV19 threat which was ahead]. To immunologists and virologists nothing more important than ‘1000 meter fog’ lie ahead [if even that]. Without belaboring the point, we have previously written our thoughts about the published opinions of the “Medical Experts” who never saw pandemic awaiting the entire world [Such a embarrassment to those with integrity].

Perhaps the world needs to pay attention to the ‘Ship Captains of the past’ who sailed or caravaned from the Atlantic Ocean, to the Pacific Ocean and back again, over a period of about 500 years. Europe, North Africa, Central Asia, India, and China were their territories: The “Radhanim”. They were multi-lingual, vastly knowledgeable of their traded goods, amenable to the ideas of others cultures, and business practices, and perhaps wisest of all: ALWAYS TRIED TO LOOK BEYOND THE HORIZON for coming obstacles and opportunities [it has been written]. “Radhanim” acted as intermediaries for social communications and business negotiations. ‘Ship Captains’ they obviously were! They went east further than Seleucus I Nicator, not through the use of force, but by being tactful; Silk is smooth.

Reality: Being too cocksure of its abilities, can put even the wiliest of creatures into a snare.

The ‘Vessel’ “United Nations” Maintains Its Lethargic Crew, As It Sails In A Storm; Will The Alert From ‘The Island’, Al Jazeera, Of Doha, Qatar, Awaken Any Members, To The Dire Plights Of Able Seafarers Around The World?

A compendium of negative events, the most pronounced being: The lack of capital for seafarers, their sustenance, and of ships’ maintenance, by some devious Vessel Owners, appear to have fallen on deaf United Nations members’ ears.

We, for many decades, have closely participated in various ways, and watched World Maritime Shipping with great interest. Today, some Ship Owners have ignored International Maritime Organization requirements for both safe crews and ships. The Coronavirus CV19 Pandemic has exacerbated a dearth of funding for the aforementioned. Essentially ‘Involuntary Servitude’ of prior centuries has been reformatted into ‘Slavery on Ships’ today.

Crews cannot leave their vessels since nations are concerned they may transmit the CV19 virus to their citizens. Chandlers must also be very cautious. Some Ship Owners have ‘skated away’ from providing funds for the crews and their ships’ maintenance.

We find it remarkable that while ship engine pollution and rules of such are written about profusely by the “Germalists”, we had mentioned in other articles, few say anything about the Seafarers current plight. The GARGANTUAN level of reporting about the Suez Canal weather-caused stoppage recently, was heard around the world! Yet, this current dastard situation is not discussed; not by Main Stream Media, nor world politicians. Why is that?

The “Logistics” subject, occurred during the ‘Suez Event’ and it ‘made the news’; World Seafarers, through communications negligence, Main Stream Media effectively caused to ‘abuse’.

Again, as International Businessmen, we commend “Al Jazeera”, and the Government of Qatar, for giving this terrible problem, the ‘Light of Day’ in a somewhat ‘Stormy World’.

It is our hope, the very few actual ‘World Leaders’ that exist, take the helm and steer the United Nations into actions which aid the plight of Able Seamen.

Reality: It is good to be on the bridge of the ship as it sails; it is best to be awake as it does. There may be a large iceberg ahead.

“Fake News”: The Choice Of Puppet Masters’ Masters [PMM’s]For Influencing Sheep About: Business, Health, Politics, Or Weather> Financial Gain Is Their Aim.

As Main Stream Media {MSM}, the agents of the PMM’s, go about their tasks of influencing Sheep to have favorable [or un-favorable] views and commensurate actions by the quadra-peds, we see repetitive tactics used consistently.

“Global Warming” became the ‘sine qua non’ rallying cry to the Sheep. Apparently, they were not listening, so “voila!”, a transformation to the current ‘Climate Change‘ became fashionable. MSM ‘Germalists’ started panic pronouncements about: “All of the world’s ice deposits are melting and everyone in most locales risk being flooded out [Anthropogenesis was, and is, at work”, all were told]. Any claims that Gaia was merely in a natural ‘ebb and flow’ of energy levels, historically recurring, was derided as heretical. To suggest ‘Cosmic’ contributions through solar storms, et al, was, and is, even more blasphemous.

We, in International Business, are amused by many examples of the ‘tu quoque’ ideations. One glaring example is the Financial Community extolling the virtues of fighting global warming, and blaming others, while at the same time establishing data mining operations for crypto-currencies [which use enormous amounts of electricity!]. Are these ‘mining operations’ the best use of electricity when and where ‘brown-outs’ and ‘black-outs’ are feasible? In areas where such hot conditions might not be of concern, why not sell the surplus of electricity to other nations? Touted wind-farms and solar parks could benefit societies greater than ‘financial creations’ even less ‘sturdy’ than “Derivatives” brokers love.

The “Northern Transportation Corridor” [NTC], which has opened up, is a very viable and needed addition for transportation of commodities and goods across the Arctic, from Asia to Europe, and back, we think. The recent unfortunate blockage of the Suez Canal due to inclement weather events, is a valid reason to have more routes around the planet. The fact that Russian experience in such cold environments is spectacular, should lead businessmen to seek shorter transit times so they can have greater profits. The facilities, and ships of Russia will assure safe sailing; “No ‘Pirates’ dare take on the Bear”. Russian Leadership, under steadfast President Putin, makes this entire geography accessible for commercial endeavors also. Investors should consider Arctic and Siberian economic opportunities in this ‘Land of Plenty’, are our opinions. Yet, MSM acolytes apparently have apparently been instructed by PMM’s orders to denigrate Russia for protecting its ‘turf’ with its military might. Since this NTC is extremely valuable, why would the sovereign nation possessing it, not protect it? The Non-Governmental Organizations have been busy in this regard, we have noticed. Again, this is another example for MSM “Germalists” trying to make “Bears” morphed into “Wolves”; genetically, this is not possible. Instead, to people who think, might not they opine that the real “Wolves” are the PMM’s? PMM’s” look out for PMM’s, eleemosynary objectives are not their fortes.

Another interesting “Fake News” outpouring, we think, has been: “A nation’s Insidious, Unscrupulous, Usurious lending of monies and technologies to other nations for commercial infrastructure growth therein” MSM Germalists claim. Our opinions are: It is a insult to recipient nations to think their Accountants, Engineers, Estimators, and Fabricators cannot assess, freely and openly, over a period of months or years, if they want to proceed with the lender. It is also asinine to the lender to have its motives besmirched. Who is coercing these countries to engage? None whom we are aware. They certainly can seek competitive bids from other lenders if they choose. One cannot fault a ancient culture for wanting to benefits its people even more, as it helps other peoples elsewhere.

We have written, a number of times about Coronavirus CV19 and the Germalists writing about the ‘Pandemic’ [before it was even one]. Who put the idea in their heads: “To stir up the herd”? Today, ‘Cocksure’ about a “Meat Market malaise” commencing the CV19 situation, months ago, now has morphed into a nation’s Biologic Lab being the insipient locus. Yet, we who analyze world-actions, are not so sure of this reputed source, as we had written. Even if research was on-going at a particular laboratory, it certainly does not preclude others, in lands around the world, from doing similar research. If funded by the wealthy, or super-wealthy, others with different political and/or social agendas could acheive their goals; economic being one of them. The fact that since the pandemic onset, many billionaires have made more billions. Perhaps some were in on the scheme? Forensic studies may reveal much more to this tragedy than mere “Virions running amok, due to Mother Nature”.

People do not trust the Media, it is the acolyte of the PMMs, nothing more. While the lackey “Germalists” get pennies, they help the PMMs make billions of dollars. “Want a ‘Pandemic’?” “No problem.”

Realty: Long term or short term, “It is the money, Sonny; all ways and always, the money”.

Effective “Leaders” Lead Their Nations In Innovative Ways, To Increase International Commerce

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.

Dubrovnik, Croatia To Sofia, Bulgaria: 400 Miles Apart Geographically, Yet Vastly Different In Crime Rates [As To The Other Nations Also]

It is interesting to comprehend how people can be so close to each other, yet so varied as to some of their behaviors. The excellent “Eurostat’s: ‘Crime, Violence, Or Vandalism In The Local Area” Report illustrates this reality. The reported crime in Croatia is listed at ‘2.7% of total population in 2019’ and in Bulgaria [Europe’s highest rated reporting percentage] is ‘20.2%’ which is almost ‘ten times’ as great [generally speaking].

We, in International Business, have engaged citizens of the aforementioned countries, as well as all members of the European Union [E.U.]. The ‘World View’ we have developed, over many years, is no different for our European friends. That is to say: “It is not the people of a country that may be problematic in business, it may be just the behaviors of a few that we question. Even then, those same people may be totally acceptable to engage ‘on a different day’?”

The wide disparity in reported crime levels: for example of Greece [16.9%] to neighboring Italy [9.4%] is easier to comprehend than some of the other nations’ rates. Italy has manufacturing in Aircraft, Automobiles, Ships [all of international renown]; Greece has none. The able Greeks, having had leaders of non-remarkable abilities, since World War II, and are now mired in National Economic debt of an estimated $400,000,000,000.00+/-. We think, this has been due to: Extremely poor choices in spending [especially in Military Hardware procurement]; Lack of direction to gain manufacturing prowess for greater employment of its citizenry; A public ethos of ‘Tax Evasion Is Our Salvation’ [at all levels of society].

Greece has: “location, location, location”, second-to-none of its European neighbors, [as the wise Chinese realize and are availing themselves for commerce]; exploitable mineral resources; great weather, Superb ‘Kalamata’ Olives; a very intelligent citizenry. These all bode well for it. Perhaps, the present Greeks Leaders, will show “business acumen” ‘by the bootstraps’, and thus, make Greece a ‘Commercial Manufacturing Entity’, as Italy has been, since the exact same time-frame. And most importantly of all: WITHOUT EXCUSES BY GREEK LEADERS, AS TO WHY THIS IS NOT BEING DONE FOR THEIR CITIZENS! Greek Leadership needs, ‘unowned’ impartial advisors for significant results.

We hope that the tie-up for electrical power transmission from Israel to Europe, through Greece, may have a benefit to the Greeks. The Israelis understand International Commerce and are well-respected for market products, as such. Maybe, Greeks can learn from the Israelis what to do, in that regard? Also, Greece’s tie-up with a strong leader, as is Abdel Fatah el-Sisi, of Egypt, to Gas and Oil projects, will gain it additional revenue.

Coronavirus [CV19] should have demonstrated to the Greeks, that their 20%+/- of national income being derived from tourism, is a ‘weak brother’ to have to rely on. Small virions can destroy the ‘Hospitality Industry’ forthwith.

We think the leaderships of Hungary [5.3%] and Poland [4.4%] evidence what can be done to minimize miscreant actors behavior and keep crime rates low. In both countries, strong leadership, decried by some weak leaders elsewhere, provides a ethos for their citizens of “RESPECT”. Both Leaders, are what we would deem to be “Internationalists”, not ‘Globalists’; this attitude we praise. These Gentlemen want the very best for their citizens [an admirable trait]. The European Union Leaders should think about Belgium [13.3%], (where the E.U. is headquartered) when they decide to deride Hungary’s and Poland’s leadership.

Reality: “Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions” come about in nations with ‘Strong Leadership’ guiding a ‘Principled Public’.

Alternative Energy Source: Just Follow The World’s Air Currents To See Investment Opportunities

The American Bureau of Shipping [ABS] just published an all-telling discussion of U.S. Wind Farm shipping needs for the next decades. It discusses both ‘Rigid Foundation’ structures as well as ‘Floating’ structures. The requirements to both build and maintain such behemoths fall under the purview of the U.S. Merchant Marine Act of 1920, Section 27 [Delineated as the “Jones Act”]. It regulates commerce of maritime nature. It aids the American Merchant Marine. Those items sent between American ports must travel on ships built, operated, and owned by American citizens or residents with permanent license.

The scope of that which is intended to be built is enormous, as are the sizes of the equipment. At the present moment, the reality is that almost everythings needed to be built, for such a enormous undertaking in America, do NOT exist [ergo, opportunities to invest are profound.] It has been estimated that investments exceeding US $100,000,000,000.00 will be required for these undertakings.

The aforementioned gargantuan sizes of these wind farm units get as large as 222 meters [728 feet] in Rotor Diameter and 108 meters [354 feet] in Blade Lengths! The fact that transportation vessels will be heavily required for construction as well as maintenance of such farms bodes well for investors. The farms and the vessels all must be funded.

The excellent twenty-eight page ABS Document describes both east and west coast locations for possible wind farms. As the technology improves, one may ask: “Why not put smaller units in the Great Lakes also?” In fact, where abundant daytime evaporation occurs [due to seasonal variations, altitude, lake water depths, turbidity of lake, et al] wind movement prevails varyingly. Perhaps wind farms could provide other inland lake-area residents with abundant clean electricity? Investment opportunities abound!

Since we closely follow, as we have for decades, all manners of maritime shipping everywhere, those of you with interested in possibly investing may want to contact us. While we do NOT recommend specific projects, we CAN assess their costs, risks, and success probabilities. Pertinent evaluations of any technologies, of any subjects, can earn you much money and/or can save you money.

Reality: As the Eagle can soar above a large development project and comprehend its scope, it takes the careful observations of the Hummingbird to fly throughout and determine its integrity and sustainability.

If, Britain’s Now “Uncaged” Barbary Tiger {Panthera leo leo}, Joins With India’s Tiger {Panthera tigris},Expect To See Enormous Economic Growth ‘In The Brood’

Over the many decades we have engaged in, and watched, the ebb and flow of International Commerce between nations of the world. As we participate in International Business, it behooves us to stay observant of ‘Going Forward Movements’ of countries on the various continents. One such trend, we think, has rejuvenated itself in some respects: Britain’s exit from the European Union while India, through insightful leadership, goes with “Make In India” as its direction.

We have had laudable relations with citizens of Britain and India. Subjectively, we think there are other elements which will bind both nations as to their futures: The British and Indian ‘high’ intellects are of public knowledge; They are tenacious as to thwarting hegemonic nations; Both countries have ‘Leaders’ in Boris Johnson and Narendra Modi who are ‘World Class’. These Gentlemen know ‘There is NO BENEFIT to their citizens, in being a weak nation‘. Conjoined economically, as to future business ventures, along with excellent geographic locations on Earth [Atlantic and Indian Oceans] there is a synergy geo-spatially.

We presume that world events will propel both to examine military cooperation; this, as it regards such International Business activities in which they might engage in the future. As an example, piracy against shipping is a common threat on both sides of Africa and can ruin logistics of products to Europe and Asia. As India increases its mining, smeltering, and fabrication of metals for shipments, this can help Britain grow and maintain its manufactured goods prowess; this while India manufactures its hardware.

Britain’s Financial Center is of Global Fame. This acclaim is not a hologram; it was earned over many years. It is a asset of the highest order in International Commerce. It will be a most useful entity for the activities we foresee occurring between the nations.

India, which has renown in Computer Software, especially in Bengalaru [Bangalore], can certainly assist in matters of Artificial Intelligence to be applied to advanced projects and products. It will be of benefit to both countries to cooperate even further in Information Technology, than is presently occurring.

Looking forward, beyond “Panthera leo leo” tying up with “Panthera tigris”, as aforementioned, would be adding in both Australia and New Zealand to this brood. Thus, the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and western Pacific Ocean would be great commercial markets. If the Canadians joined in, the eastern Pacific Ocean would give this group phenomenal marketing, mining, and manufacturing capability. We collectively think this is where such commerce is headed.

We have already determined, for ourselves, the Leadership abilities of Mr. Johnson and Mr. Modi. It will take further behaviors by the leaders of the other countries mentioned, to see if they are up to the game INTERNATIONALLY. For it is one thing to be a country’s leader [placating one’s citizenry of their concerns] and another to rise much higher and become a “World Class Leader” [which is arduous].

Reality: Many people try to climb “Mount Everest” and fail; a few with ‘Sherpa’ abilities succeed [this with Intellect, Tenacity, and most of all, Wisdom].

At Times, “Green” Energy Becomes Effete, Inert, And “Snow White”

For decades, as a manufacturer of “Mega-Temp™ Aircraft Insulation“, we have seen the obvious frailties of 1930’s designed and manufactured insulation systems offered around the world. The fact that those aged products DO NOT INSULATE in extremes of climate variations of icy weather, or very hot weather seems to be disregarded. This, by “Building Departments” at Local, Provincial [State], and/or Federal Government levels around the globe. The yearly costs to all levels of governments are profound. Energy requirements to cool or heat airports, commercial or government buildings, homes, schools, shopping centers, warehouse, et al is money being spent needlessly. If the aforementioned structures are PROPERLY insulated, id est: Attics, Ceilings, Ducting, Elevator Shafts, Floors, Piping, Stairwells, and Walls, then “Cocoons of Protection” are in place; ergo, minimal energy is required to achieve enjoyable temperatures therein [thus, saving money]. This is “Basic Thermal Control” [and Good Economics], not “Rocket Science”.

Presently, in America’s State of Texas, FROZEN WINDMILL FARMS, due to Icy Weather, have essentially ‘castrated’ power production of their widely-extolled “Green Energy” mileau. As this would NOT HAPPEN with Coal, Hydro-Electric, or Oil Generated Systems, many people are suffering while a Covid 19 pandemic ensues. Perhaps some, living elsewhere, will merely dismiss the discomfort of Texans as being ‘transitory’ [ a ‘minor inconvenience’]; their expecting the weather to improve in a few days for the Texans?

As we have seen, as International Businessmen, there are a few ‘Real Leaders’ who find transitional, unreliable, energy solutions UNACCEPTABLE for their populations [Aircraft and Ship Crews and Passengers, Workers, and Citizens]. A available cost-effective ‘Acoustic and Thermal Technology’, as “Mega-Temp Insulation” may be quickly installed on a permanent basis. This should activate “Leaders with Integrity” to reduce energy consumption needs in their jurisdictions as well as for the comfort and safety of others.

There are no present substitutes for RELIABLE ENERGY PRODUCTION. We think that to blame the current “Climate Change” [formerly marketed as ‘Global Warming’ (until that term became less fashionable)] massively on anthropogenic causes is foolhardy. The planet Earth is not a ‘Singularity In A Impenetrable Bubble’. It is a scintilla of matter in a great universe of “Rotational Energy”. The weather is dynamic, change in it [great cold and great heat] will keep occurring long after man is gone. Radiative loads from many cosmic sources had, have, and will affect weather on ‘Gaia’. “Isolated Physical Masses”, unaffected by anything in the Cosmos, are mere holograms to be entertained by Sheep.

Reality: If one wants to create a product that works, even a ‘Windmill’, he or she had better understand all causations that may affect the design and its performance; this, to overcome those negativities, prior to mass production.

“Transportation Corridors” Leading To Nowhere: Countries’ Political Corruptions

It is interesting that countries with great historical trade routes are not being facilitated with honest political leaders. For example, to quote Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani: “Afghanistan is one of these places of intersection, as historical trade roads ranging from the grand trunk road to the lapis lazuli and silk met here,” …. “Names given to us capture the significance of our location best: the heart of Asia; gates of India; land bridge; roundabout, a place where goods, ideas, and people freely move, circulate and interact; Switzerland of Asia.”. And of course, another example is Greece [superbly centrally located as to Africa, Europe, and the Middle East]; we shall discuss.

As to Afghanistan, First Vice President Amrullah Saleh has decried corruption on-going in his country. Mr. Saleh thinks there is ‘big-time’ corruption occurring, yet there are no investigations of the miscreants. Saleh said, “this is a forgotten corner,” and that “to this date, ministers, generals, directors and even politicians of high stature have been charged but no member of the parliament has paid any price for their involvement in corruption.” Benefits from Afghanistan’s 600,000+/- acres of Poppy fields down-stream productions, can be very enticing to some in Kabul. With America’s support of monies and personnel, the Poppy fields have greatly expanded as to acreage. Which Americans, we ask, have and will benefit from the downstream productions; it is more than ‘International Relations’ munificence that is the propulsion of this particular U.S. Aid.

As to Greece (10,000,000+ Population), long ago we had written that the $375,000,000,000.00+ [estimated government debt] was beyond being absolutely atrocious for a ‘small’ country. It had NO “ministers, generals, directors and even politicians of high stature” investigated, prosecuted, found guilty, and incarcerated in “Korydallos” Prison [or other secured containment location]. The rampant acquisition of military equipment it could not afford, at the time, such as submarines from Germany, and other ‘high-priced hardware, leads one to assume bribery flourished. Since that time, the lack of judicial redress to the ‘Financial Treason” by the perpetrators, suggest that bribery by some of the new ‘Operators’ of the country is possible. The corruption of the powerful in Greece has been “sárose káto apó to chalí”. As International Businessmen, we think this is such a shame to the honor of Greece, and such a theft to the Greek Citizenry; they deserve better.

China has determined that ‘location, location, location’ as to Greece, is of great benefit to the ‘Dragon’s’ commercial needs. It has paid substantial amounts to develop Piraeus harbor and can further assist in a transportation corridor to the rest of Europe. It is our hope that the monies paid, go towards the Greek people and not into Swiss Bank Accounts of the Greek ‘Untouchables’, as we have discussed. Of course, if challenged about ‘Bribery’ or ‘Embezzlement’, each ‘Untouchable ‘ will declare “Θεν έχω χπήματα”.

The upcoming Natural Gas flows eventually through Greece to Europe should make Greeks happy. However, one can assume that some Swiss Bankers will even be happier with their “Depositors from Athens”.

Reality: As to “Forks in the Road”, to the Injudicious, there is a quandary as to which way to go; to those of Integrity, the correct route is a “lighted superhighway”.

Tuesday, 3 November, 2020, American Election: As International Businessmen, We Present Our Analyses, For Those Prudent: Where The Future Winners Will Be, And Advise Where, And When, Others Should Discard ‘Losing Cards In Their Hands’.

The coming, election in America, will offer some Industries,  Investors, and even Countries, Improved Benefits and Profits, thereafter.  Current Investors and some other Countries may find: “The Future May Not Bode Well”; As to those Industries and locations where monies are presently committed, adjustments will be needed.

For our Subscribers, gain from our analyses of businesses, countries, and industries that will be moving ahead in 2021; this due to results of the coming election. We foresee the ‘shackles’ of many decades of ‘Special Interest Groups’ conniving [lead by the Puppet Masters’ Masters] being removed. That constant economic burden to America, being made effete, will provide opportunities for growth, seldom seen. As to other industries, that have historically prospered due to the ‘graft’, one may want to ‘Short their stocks’.

Reality: Beyond the horizon, many changes await, for America. A word to the Wise is sufficient.
