We Have Been Doing A Lot of Business With Putin’s Russa – The Power of Public Scrutiny

I am stunned and amazed how intertwined American and world business/finance have been with Putin’s Russia and also somewhat responsible for the resurgence of Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Putin has never been an unknown quantity. It seems the opportunity for profits seldom has a conscience unless it is forced into the open and finds itself with the attention of the public. The same can be said for investment in China. This was also blind to the host and their behavior. How much of the profits are tainted with blood and crimes against humanity?

Here is a link that reveals many western companies and their involvement in Russia:


We need to ask these questions and hold the business community and our governments accountable. This is what needs to change before the world can have any hopes of being a better place.

I am a native Vermonter. I am a child of the 50s, 1951 to be exact. For much of my youth Vermont had one foot in the 19th century and one in the 20th century. The old ways coexisted with a world that was changing. We were sort of insulated in Vermont from much that was happening outside our state, but our little protective bubble was shrinking. My understanding of today has been greatly influenced by the past as the past was always part of our present in the Vermont of the 1950s and even the 60s. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. You will find my thoughts on many topics here. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. I try to write clearly and simply. I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting my site. Take care.
