Why? Because the tiny little event called “Brexit” is going to ruin your fourth quarter – possibly even your third. It’s called the ‘Hunker Down” or “Trench Warfare” complex.
Mr. Putin is a smart man. Selling arms to Syria not only threw 4.5 Million (Amnesty International) Syrian Refugees into surrounding nations. There are another 13.5 Million within Syria that need help desperately and a % of these will, undoubtedly become refugees.
The EU is watching these refugees very carefully – and they are putting plans into place (unlike the US whose Supreme Court cannot decide what to do) – plans which are, surely, rushed, and potentially not sustainable.
Thank you Mr. Putin. Your Arm’s sales have thrust an inordinate human crisis upon a few nations. History will show you how war has moved hordes of people from place to place, and how this upheaval renders political pluralism impossible. How fear of others, and potentially dangerous situations allow the human mind to contemplate the abhorrent. Bruit is the tip of a large iceberg. Titanic passengers, exit left.
The Wicked Witch of the West is always the stock market, and even though it keeps cheating us, like a lover who sex is better than anyone else’s you’ve ever experienced, it whispers to us….” just give me some time…oh, and can you spot me a $20?” – you open your wallet. Get your wallet ready, and the secret compartment in your mattress.
No mattress at work?? Good for you. How ‘bout a sofa??
Talk to your clients now. Have a heart to heart. Be firm, be honest, tell them that you want to work through the next 48 months in the very best way possible, but that you understand that climate change is real – – and it’s going to get hot.
