Invest in America!

David Bosworth's presentation at the Boisi Center on Tuesday brought to mind Vahan Topalian's pronouncement of many years ago:  "People are not interested in reading the news in the newspapers; they just want to look at the ads."

And Peter Bilezikian, a good businessman, a survivor of the Armenian Genocide (1915-1923), a man who loved the United States for welcoming the Armenian survivors,   would always say, "If you're going to buy stocks,  invest in America -- you'll never go wrong.   . . . And the same goes for cars . . . buy American!"

Is that even possible today?

  1. If and only if you name the vehicle, 'American'.

  2. What seems American is a mirage these days. Perhaps in the the America of our parents. Car-shells stuffed with foreign-made innards and engines are a far cry from being constituted American. It gets worse on many other fronts as well, (USDA) will soon allow U.S. chickens to be sent to China for processing before being shipped back to the states for human consumption. I just lost my appetite writing this!
