Frank Giustra & The Art of Curiosity

“I don’t like giving advice to the younger generation, because I never took advice. I didn’t listen to anybody. I marched to my own drum, and it worked. Had I listened to what the older, more established people were saying to me, and suggesting that I do, I would have never achieved anything.” Frank Giustra is one of the most successful financiers, entrepreneurs and philanthropists on the planet. He’s widely known as a Canadian mining mogul and for his philanthropic

When Trust Evaporates

I thought I’d compare the current Wuhan zombie apocalypse bat virus to that of SARS and see what is similar this time around…and what is not. Now, I’m not going to get into which virus wins the “I killed more faster”, (thus far, it was SARS with a fatality rate of 9.6% vs 2.8%). Or which is more infectious (SARS again, though Coronavirus can spread while still incubating). Or join the silly debate of whether we should eat bats (they

Wars have Been Fought over Less

When I first visited Asia nearly 2 decades ago I felt like a giant….still do. Here’s why…even though this chart is 10 years old my guess is it’s not changed a great deal.
