In proportion to population, this is equivalent to the 20 million French citizens who voted for Emmanuel Macron in the second round of the French elections. Explain to me why the claims of Mr. Macron would be more legitimate than the claims of the Catalans?
Gold is a unique investment... in that the price of the miners' product changes every minute. It is affected by both economic and political trends and is therefore difficult to forecast. When the price of gold fell in 2012, many miners were left with tonnes
Since the beginning of time, man has searched for shortcuts to prosperity... and found that the easiest method is to simply take wealth from others. Today, that method is taken to a new level of sophistication - take a little from many... and the con can
The projects of renewal and improvement of the city of Paris have the almost certainty of ending in disaster or in failure ... and to cost an arm to the taxpayers.
Ultimately, attention to incomes and profits disappears. The evaluations do not depend on it. Ideas, not dollars, make the law in the San Francisco or Manhattan areas.
For economists, downturns in the market have no use in particular ... They arise due to "dysfunctions" in the system. The economist sees himself as a protector of the prosperity ... by manufacturing growth without retreat.
No company does this cheerfully, and Nokia is no different. The telecommunication company struggles to keep up with their competition. The announcement must have a particularly bitter taste for ex-Alcatel who already survived a multitude of social plans and
Progress is usually made by trial and error... but sometimes these trials can last generations. The key is to recognize failure quickly, and try something different. The French government is starting and subsidizing failing trials that could last multiple
A financial adviser will generally tell you to "diversify" which means putting a little in shares, and little in bonds ... but almost always, those shares and bonds are the same ones that everyone invests in. How can you expect extraordinary profits when
Like many developed nations, the Swiss pursue "progress" at the expense of the individual taxpayer ... For example, Switzerland has spent nearly 3 billion euros in 4 years to support farmers ... to produce goods which its neighbors would gladly export
Instead of allowing the future to take its course, Nicolas Hulet, Energy Minister, has taken away the consumer's choice... and instead, he has decided to spend billions of euros (your euros) to chase his dreams.
A crypto-currency provides you with a safe haven outside of the control of the government. Safely store your wealth if inflation takes off, or the state imposes controls on bank accounts, or if world events cause distrust in certain currencies.
In an attempt to compete with Hollywood, France poured €170 million into the film. Unfortunately, the bold experiment has became an expensive monument to naiveté...
You may think that you've missed the crypto-currency boat, but that assumption would be dangerously wrong. Expert, Philippe Herlin, describes the coming events set to send cryptos stratospheric.
If you didn't know, there is a set limit on how many bitcoin will ever be mined: 21 million. With a limited quantity and growing demand, bitcoin's long-term value can only grow higher.
Cycles are nothing new to farmers. You plant in the spring and harvest in the fall. It would be crazy to expect the harvest to continue through winter, then spring, then summer...and yet, that's exactly what mainstream economists are forecasting.
In 2015, 300,000 wealthy French citizens lived in London, allowing them to significantly reduce their tax liability. After Brexit, many people expected them to return... but after a year, very few have. Why?
Rising stock prices can make it seem like the economy is growing, but in reality, they are two very different things. The economy is measured by capital... which hasn't budged in decades.
Despite the size of its capital reserves, Switzerland does not have the entrepreneurs, the projects, or the growth to invest this capital for profit.
Behind the scenes in Washington, Army leaders continue to promise results - demanding more spending, more troops, more bombs, and more drones to dump them.
A tourist does not demonstrate or scream, doesn't complain to get subsidies or allowances ... doesn't block highways, and does not stop trains and airports. On the other hand, the tourist spends his money - of his own free will - on hotels, tours,
Historically, companies tend to trade around 15 times their profits...but today, companies on the S&P trade at 21 times their profits... and 23 times their profits on the CAC 40.
Ideas, customs, identities, and traditions in the United States are being swept away, and the winds are only getting more intense...
In the end, in politics or in war, the victors are the ones that write history. However, old ideas tend to cling to life...and find hosts to make them last...
