Crowdfunding is not as dangerous as you may fear. It’s just crowdfunding, stupid !

No fear

So, normal people can invest (waste ?) their lifetime savings to finance projects that junk-bonders, bankers and government officers won’t waste (invest ?) investors’, customers’ or taxpayers’ money in. It’s just like stock-exchange, but for smaller money.

So, is crowd funding another Wolf of Wall Street, or more stupid than any other way to waste one’s money buying useless, made in Asia, gadgets, invest one’s money in hopeless businesses, or spend the family’s savings in mortgaged housing before the next financial big one ?

Vive la France !

Whatever Heat Wave in #Europe, the Mountains (and Frenchonomics) are Cool these Days in #France

OK, the Swiss have high mountains (though the Mont Blanc belongs to Euroland, unless somebody sold it to Qatar) and real “Gruyère” cheese named after a lovely village, but France (with foreign-owned hotels never on strike) is tourism World Champion !

But who cares about summits, as long as we have the Euro ? … To be, or not to be in Euroland, that has been the question for a while, now, and some answer, my friends, is blowing in the mountain’s wind …

Some additional e-reading may be needed about how to think smarter about the future of Europe, France, Britain and other places of the changing world these days. (Please click on pictures if you don’t wanna be a potatoe couch watching things happen on TV and others enjoy sun, success, beach, love, Champagne, French learning bashing whilst you seat back in your chair reading the Sun, the Guardian or even worse and more biased against civilisation, the Financial Times).

            

Downloading some relevant pdf for printing is another option for readers with a taste for “real” paper books (or just no Kindle, but an iPhone, an iPad or whatever else works to e-read).

Bad News from the Stars (Star Wars ?) in #Chicago and Bad Weather in #Cannes

Crisis against G8 in Camp David, missiles against NATO in Chicago and cold rain against the Festival in Cannes : windy Monday, and another Bee Gees died, on top of it all. As if it were not enough with Marilyn having gone West to Palm Springs, California …
