Interview with 33 Voices

An interview with 33Voices which talks with and profiles various authors.  This was pretty fun because it wasn’t strictly an investing discussion. Link is here but I think you need to register. I did notice that his author page for me is kind of better than my own site.

32. 中东人眼中的拉登

时间:2011-05-30 17:39:56    浏览:5次     作者:杰弗瑞·陶森 “我想来杯威士忌,一杯本·拉登。” “本·拉登?” “没错,两shot加点水。” 好吧,这个玩笑有点促狭,不过还是让人忍不住笑。我并不常写政治或全球事件,如果这些事和投资无关(和度假胜地也无关),我一点也不在乎。不过本·拉登之死对西方和中东都是件大事——特别是我们这种在两个地方工作的人。如果你被迫在枪口下生活几年,这是你没法忘记的经历。所以作为一个在中东工作的美国人,我对本·拉登之死有点看法。

28. 动荡创造机会

埃及、突尼斯、巴林陷入混乱,利比亚正经历内战,不过邻居沙特阿拉伯正在经历5年内最大的经济飞跃。媒体完全忽视了一点,中东目前的动荡会给海湾国家创造令人瞩目的经济增长。精明的中国投资者和企业应当关注,因为他们会从中获得厚利。 我在阿可贺巴(Al-Khobar)的一家星巴克写这篇专栏,它是沙特阿拉伯的一座小城。阿可贺巴是一座宁静的海湾城市,坐落于蓝色的波斯湾和广阔的 鲁卜哈利沙漠之间,这是个非常宜人的地方。同时,它也处在沙特阿拉伯石油工业的集中带。当人们谈论起沙特阿拉伯石油巨头,他们其实就是在谈论阿可贺巴和它 的邻居达曼、达兰。 我在这里寻找投资机会,尤其是医院和保险公司。我也许是第一个从中国到这里的投资者,来捕捉出现在这片土地上的投资机会。不过可以肯定,我是唯一一个获知中东动乱爆发后以最快速度跳上飞机从上海飞到迪拜的人。我的想法很简单,繁荣又要回到沙漠王国了。
