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 Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy.
