Tonight I watched this really thoughtful and well put talkshow. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Tomorrow have to get up very early so I have to stop writing now, but I’ll come back to this entry when I get time, just leave a mark for now: ….and one quick note for now: Many thanks to Mr. Schmidt […]

农业和科普

我国习储君神隐十多日。这件事在德国都成为重磅花边新闻。前几日我那平时不问世事的老公竟然问我,你们的习近平是不是躲到柜子里去了?Spiegel,ARD 都在找他! 今天早上看到储君在农业大学出席全国科普日活动。我感到十分高兴。农业和科普都是中国最重要的事。储君不愧当年曾在基层历练,了解民生疾苦。眼下多事之秋,各种喧嚣夺人眼目。储君归来首次出镜,千头万绪之中,以实际行动表态最重视农业和科普,真正脚踏实地心水清。可喜可贺。

绝望还是希望

DAX 跌跌不休。欧债危机越滚越大。都不知道这个周日以后,欧洲会走向何方。欧元废止,我是不愿意见到的。 当初刚到德国,冰激凌一马克一支。几个月后就是一欧元一支。对大多数人而言, 无缘无故就贵了一倍。再用回马克吗?更换整个软硬件配套系统生出来的成本会令我的冰激淋一夜之间再贵一倍。至少一倍。欧盟解体,也是我不愿见到的。 好多客户在外国,西班牙比利时等地,每次出差都要检查护照,烦死了。就算不用出差,德国人民热爱度假。 每次去外国度假都要排长队过海关, 烦不烦啊?

昨天收拾家务时有收听这个谈话。 Helmut Schmidt 做客 Sandra Maischberger (真没办法, 又是这个女人。 充分说明 ARD 台中无人。), 虽然是 2010 年 12 月 14 日的节目, 很多话题仍然有现实意义:

Recently German media often discusses about the pension system. People from different parties debated heavily. Many people want so-called retirement-pension-guarantee. In my opinion, the retirement pension system in Germany, which was designed in 1950’s, is totally out of the reality of the current highly dynamic, highly competitive, and globalized economic. In Germany, young people pay […]

Student protests and Jacob Schrot

Actually I wanted to write this entry a while ago, because of my laziness and online-shopping impulses it’s postponed till now. June 15th to June 19th was German students’ “protest week” this year. Many students from all over the Germany, from primary pupils to university students, went to streets and protested against bad hardware conditions […]

unnecessary projects

I heard that Shanghai is going to build yet another Disneyland which would cost around 4 billion euros. And, an artificial lake which costs 50 million euros is already being built in Shanghai, seems the main purpose is to boost the price of real estates around the lake. I don’t feel happy to hear these […]

The Wise: Helmut Schmidt, ex. Chancellor of West Germany from 1974 to 1982. The talk below was on 2008.05.20. When I get time I’ll try to translate it into English. The complete interview can be found here. If only Angela Merkel were as half as wise as Helmut Schmidt is, Germany would have much less […]

Sniff and Sneeze 12

Sniff: Jim Rogers: China’s Economic Advance is All But Unstoppable Recently I was reading a 20-year-old book “Market Widzards: Interviews with Top Traders” and was deeply impressed by Jim Roger’s accurate prediction for the world economics in late 1980s. More impressive was his way of viewing the world economics. Now let’s see what he said […]
