A few days ago, some of the men of the Weiss family gathered to celebrate.
After a hectic political season of rave, rant, dread and dreams, we felt this quiet holiday time was our chance to regroup, rethink, and refocus on the positive.
Of course, my fears are not easy to wrap up in ribbons, and I’ve shared them with you frankly with no punches pulled. (See Russia’s Long March to War Part I and Part II; America’s Day of Rage; Time Bomb in Tokyo, and more).
But in the midst of darkness, lights can shine brighter — the New Gilded Age, the wonderchild of Southeast Asia, and the incredibly promising investment ideas that our associate Jon Markman has introduced.
That’s the high spirit with which we will start the new year. And that’s the deep feeling we want to convey to you and your family during this special interlude between Christmas and New Year’s.
Please join us in praying for peace. And be sure to return one week from today when I show you how it can actually happen.
Good luck and God bless!
