Is Currency Driving Russian Conflict

Corporatizing the globe; a new phenomenon? Clearly not, but in an era of the key-stroke push-of-the-button phalanx, much happens far more quickly than ever before; including mistakes with incalculable consequences.

“The sun had long since bid its parting adieu though its presence lingered in the canopy of stars; a soft evening breeze eases itself across the bay to fan the buckeye and maple trees which line the esplanade and though not immediate to his view the occasional scent of polish sausage and sauerkraut tethers one to the thought of a nearby vendor and his push-cart.
