Salient to Investors:

Fareed Zakaria said:

  • Obama is an optimist about the world and America’s place in it – historically, optimists have tended to be right.
  • Iran’s Gulf enemies outspend it militarily by 8 to 1, America by 40 to 1. Iran is being forced to fight on two fronts to preserve its security – not a sign of strength.
  • The US has made many mistakes when it acted out of fear, but when it has patiently organized allies, negotiated agreements with adversaries, built its internal strength, it has prevailed in the end. The US has outlasted monarchy, fascism, revolution and communism, and will outlast radical Islam andcope with Iran.
  • The UN the global population will increase 2.4 billion to 9.7 billion by 2050. Before then India’s population will surpass China. By 2050, Nigeria will be the world’s third most populous country, and its 9th largest economy in the world by 2050 , up from 20th in 2014, according to PWC.
