We predict that Russia will continue to recognize the separatist cities and do everything in its power to make it difficult for the Ukraine to be an active participate in the European Union by raising gas prices.
The voters, disenchanted with the Congress, have put him in charge. Now the question is whether we'll see Modi the ideologue or Modi the pragmatist. I believe the latter will prevail, though the former will inevitably make its presence known.

No one said the "sausage-making" of public policy is interesting to watch, but it is nonetheless a vitally important part of the legislative process.

Earth is a big, messy place with nations and cultures whose actions stem from deep history and habits that have little or nothing to do with big, self-absorbed, inward-looking America and its five percent of the world population.
Another longer-term trend in investments interests me. The jewels of the one percent through history. I look at history not of investment bubbles, but of the flow of wealth through the jewelry.
If you want a measure of rise and decline, look no further than this comparison between U.S. and Chinese infrastructural build-ups, between, that is, Washington's global military-first strategy and Beijing's civilian-first one.
