In der NZZ vom 10. Mai 2021 sprach Gerald Hosp zunächst von einer “überreizten Globalisierung: Ein riesiges Containerschiff, das von einer taiwanischen Reederei betrieben wird, einem japanischen Schifffahrtsunternehmen gehört und unter der Flagge Panamas fährt, blieb mit seiner indischen Besatzung auf der Fahrt von China nach Europa in einem ägyptischen Kanal stecken — zum Leidwesen einer britischen Versicherung.” Doch wer daraufhin mit Begeisterung in die darauffolgenden Zeilen blickte, um sich in einer Kritik an der Globalisierung bestätigt zu fühlen, der wurde enttäuscht. Zu Recht.

Denn anders als die derzeitige Wahrnehmung ist die Globalisierung eine Erfolgsgeschichte. Und zwar auf ganzer Linie…


I wrote this in October 2020 as a reply to an email on the current market situation…

  1. Inflation

In the current market environment the trend towards more expansive stocks is purely driven by a) cheap (free) money and the lack of alternative investments. More money is accelerating the process. Both effects then lead to an overflow: cash available > then investment opportunities = everybody is running towards the only place where you still can find returns.

This is on top accelerated by negative interest rates in Europe and other countries around the world. The ECB currently has up to -0.50%…


Der Grund, warum wir für gute Inhalte bezahlen müssen, zeigt der Artikel unter folgendem Link https://www.zeit.de/kultur/2018-09/sachsen-journalistin-fremdenfeindlichkeit-chemnitz-erfahrungen (bitte lesen, bevor man meine Erwiderung hier liest) und leider sind Medien eine Einbahnstraße!!! Einmal auf zeit.de gepostet, kann jeder noch so gute Kommentar und jede noch so gute Meinung mangels entsprechendem Zugang zu Publikum den Schaden nicht mehr beheben, den solche Artikel anrichten:

Eine spontante Reaktion:

Kaum einem Artikel gelingt es so gut, die darin beschriebene Kritik selbst so konsequent zu verwirklichen, wie der Artikel der anonymen Julia Freud in der Zeit vom 16.09.2018 (https://www.zeit.de/kultur/2018-09/sachsen-journalistin-fremdenfeindlichkeit-chemnitz-erfahrungen). Was die Sachsen oder die Amerikaner mit Lügenpresse meinen, sind genau…


The average reader, reading at a speed of 300 WPM, would take approximately 4 hours and 18 minutes to read I Love Capitalism!: An American Story.

Now the problem with that is, that it took Ken Langone eight years to get from $82.50 a week, bringing his own lunch to a six figure salary. And that is not just true for him. It’s true for most of the successful people or did you know that Warren Buffett only became a billionare with the age of 56, making 99% of his wealth after his 50th birthday. And Mark Zuckerberg and the Google guy’s also didn’t get rich over night. It took them over a decade to build their companies, which is fast, but also an exception.

Now…


Censorship. Thanks to Bill Kerr.

While the discussion about privacy, data breaches, cambridge analytics and other problems in the digital world are entertaining, but more or less useless since we don’t wan’t to discuss the real challenges, we are also starting to ignore the other side of the coin.

We are simply ignoring the fact that there has never been more CENSORSHIP by PRIVATE COMPANIES than ever before!!!!!! Yes, CENSORSHIP. Remember how totaliterian systems loved and love to do that? Remember, remember, remember? Well, maybe not.

Because nowadays TWITTER is deleting accounts (fake AND real once), YOUTUBE is deleting channels (because of the content?), GOOGLE…


While we are moving in a more data-driven and more knowledge-based world, people seem to move back into a more mediavel behavior regarding the way they discuss and communicate.

A while ago I witnessed a discussion, where people where talking politics with names like Trump and Clinton flying around the table. I was ready for a good evening, but not soon after the discussion started, one of the participants of the discussion got up and left — a business dinner!

While years ago this would have been the beginning of a great discussion, with many opinions, heated arguments, loud conversations…


Over the last four years I talked to every single Uber and Lyft driver I had a ride with and this is what I learned.

1. They are very smart.

I have learned so many things from talking to Uber & Lyft drivers. There is no cheaper way to learn and understand different perspectives. One guy had a PhD in history and philosophy and we talked about politics and he told me to read America’s Strategy in World Politics. Amazing book! I watched many Netflix documentaries based on their recommendations and one time I had a young driver, Victor from Mexico, who was 27 years old and lived in the U. S. since he was a child and who helped me unterstand the U. S. election. A few weeks before…


We are at the Tipping-Point towards Utopia! We just need to understand it to get access — so we don’t waste lifetime! A mindset shift is necessary.

While the media is mainly focusing on North Korea, Trump and Syria, they are missing that the world is actually moving into a new age of human history and we are not even realizing it. For the first time, we are almost able to feed and educate everyone on the planet while providing Basic Healthcare for everyone. Nobody has to die from Aids anymore, we have only around 400,000 homicides globally, and you can now survive almost every form of cancer. …


Navigating in a world of abundance of data.

I can’t believe that people still think there is privacy in the world of 2018. If you have any electronic device — yes, not just a smart phone, drive a somehow modern car with airbags, have friends or EVER leave your house in cities with population greater 10.000 inhabitants you almost certainly don’t have privacy anymore!!! But you don’t know that because you don’t take the time to read articles like this.

LET’S START HERE: Just because you believe you have privacy, not knowing you have lost it or thinking a government that is run by old white people who…
