OK, it has finally become apparent to me that when I travel the blog lies there gathering dust. So, I have installed a widget on my iPhone that allows me to post to the blog from anywhere. Cool.
Travel has been a bear but have seem some very interesting things I will tell you about along the way including a trip to discuss an agreement with a group of North Korean leaders, another to meet 562 students at a primary school for the children of migrant workers (have some great photos to post) and a third to the Beijimg olympics.
On Friday, I will climb on another airplane–ugh–for a buffet of lectures and meetings in 6 Asian cities including the 50th anniversary of Liaoning University, a venture capital and private equity forum, a Roundtable at Tsinghua University and another at the University of International Business and Economics, an interview with China’s leading website, meetings to help a large U.S. Company decide where to locate it’s Asian headquarters, a side trip to North Korea, some time with CEOs of 2 potential private equity deals and a visit with 15 children we have arranged to transfer to a better school this year. Makes me tired just to write of down.
Meanwhile, here in the U.S., the Fed and the Treasury are doing their best to accelerate the demise of the capital markets and undermine growth and campaigning politicians are strewing $100 billion promises like rose petals along the campaign trail. And I’m tired of losing money in the stock market just like you are.
I will take up these topics in the coming days.
